Fujifilm X-H1 will have Same X-Processor Pro of X-T2… Film Simulation “Eterna” X-T2 Kaizen Update Possible?

X-Processor Pro

According to our sources, the Fujifilm X-H1 will have the same X-Processor Pro of the Fujifilm X-T2.

This is great news for X-Pro2, X-T2, X-T20, X100F and X-E3 owners, as it gives us hope that “Eterna“, Fujifilm’s new film simulation, will come also to those cameras via Kaizen update.

Let me explain it…

but before that… our X-H group is exploding… you are welcome to join :)

Film Simulation Kaizen Update for X-T2 & Co?

Now, film simulations are a “processor thing“.

This means that cameras featuring an older processor will not support film simulations, that have been introduced in cameras with newer processors. So, for example, the Acros film simulation on the X-T2 & Co cameras with X-Processor Pro, will never be implemented on Fuji cameras with older and slower EXR processors like the X-T1.

But since the X-H1 features the same same X-Processor Pro of the X-T2 and friends, there is hope that “Eterna” will come also to older X-Processor Pro cameras.

Fujifilm X-H1 Rumored Specs

Fujifilm X-H1 Vs. X-T2 Size Comparison

It’s holiday season, and with the help of our sources, Santa Patrick would like you to have an exciting holiday season full of Fujifilm rumors :)

Hence, there will be rumors. A lot of them, so don’t miss to follow FujiRumors Facebook, RSS-feed and Twitter.

What we have for you today is a size comparison X-H1 Vs. X-T2, brought to you by our beloved and trusted Japanese source.

The green shape is the X-H1 and the white one the X-T2. So quite a size difference. The size of the X-H1 looks like something in between the X-T2 and GFX.

Fujifilm X-H1 Rumored Specs

Oh, and if you think it’s too big, then check out how big one of the best hybrid stills/video cameras out there is, the Panasonic GH5… and it’s a M43 camera – via camera size

On the other hand, the A6500 is small and has IBIS. There are some overheating reports out there, though.

I think Fujifilm chose the bigger size, not only for better heat dissipation, but also for better ergonimics/handling/balance when used with the huge Fujinon MK cine lenses (or any other big Fujinon lens).

Fujifilm X-H1: In Body Image Stabilization with Full (!!!) Sensor Readout + Internal F-Log

Ok… it’s not over yet.. get ready for many more leaks… and of course you heard it here first on FujiRumors :)

In addition to all the specs we already leaked before, there are 2 more rumors to add… and I’m sure you’ll like it,

First, the Fujifilm X-H1 will have internal F-log!

Second, there will be no cropping or whatsoever when using IBIS. The sensor readout will cover the full sensor area. Yes I know, other sites keep up saying since months there will be a crop, but that’s not correct. I expect those sites to change their claims very soon ;)

Excited? Then feel free to join our Fujifilm X-H group and stay tuned with the latest rumors… the next one is just around the corner ;)

Fujifilm X-H1 Rumor Recap

Fujifilm GFX 50S Vs. Blizzard? No Problem :: Sony A7RIII Vs. Fuji GFX Dynamic Range :: Sports with GFX :: Nikon User Shoots GFX

Fujifilm GFX 50S Faces the Elements

Check out the Josselin Cornou video blog at untitledshot Youtube and some images at Instagram here and here.

TLDR :

  • Fujifilm GFX50s – Kipon EF-GFX – Tamron 15-30mm survived -15C (5 Fahrenheit) with 110km/h (70 mph) wind. It stayed out in the cold for 40min+ when the setup was literally frosting (2 times 15mn exposure, few 30s exposures).
  • Tamron 15-30mm is behaving really well with the Fujifilm GFX. From 18mm-30mm it’s really sharp and still really usable in the corner. I found it sharper in the center than with the Fuji 32-64mm@32mm.
  • So yes I definitely recommend using High definition lenses full frame for the GFX. Most of them are upscaled design to get the extras sharpness – which means that they fit Medium format.
  • And the GFX just behaved really well at those conditions, impressively well actually! (no bug, no crash, no shutdown, etc.). Having up to 60mn exposure is definitely a plus.

Sony A7R3 Vs Fujiflm GFX Dynamic Range Test at PhotonsToPhotos

The Fujifilm GFX still beats the Sony A7RIII, but as reported by SonyAlphaRumors here, things change when using pixel shift, which makes the A7rIII gain extra dynamic range.

The data:

While Fujifilm will release an IBIS camera soon, it won’t have (at least for its start) sensor shift technology.

But it’s Fuji’s first generation of IBIS… give it time, and I’m confident we will get also pixel shift, on both, APS-C and MF cameras.

Fujifilm X-T2, X-T20 and GFX 50S Firmware Update on Thursday, November 30

Fujifilm will update the Fujifilm X-T2, X-T20 and GFX 50s on November 30 (Thursday).

List of improvements:

Fujifilm Netherlands recently said here that the Fujifilm X-T20 firmware update has been postponed. But I guess Fujifilm was able to fix all issues and is ready to release it on time. You see, even Fujifilm itself can share wrong rumors now and then ;) .

FujiRumors Recommends

  1. Update your camera in any case, even if you do not need the features/improvements that come with this specific firmware update. Fujifilm often implements “undocumented fixes“, which can be as small as a typo in the menu, but also more significant bug fixes and improvements.
  2. To be 100% safe, though, do not update your camera on the same day you need your camera for a paid assignment. In very rare cases, firmware updates can introduce new bugs. If you need your camera on a paid job, wait a few days, check back fujirumors.com to see if there are some bugs with the new firmware in the following days, and if there are no reports, update your camera. But with that said, in 99% of the cases a new firmware will only improve things, and not make them worst. So at the end, always update.
  3. Read these tips for updating your firmware

Fujifilm X-T20 Firmware Postponed: “Update More Complicated Than Expected” says Fujifilm Netherlands

As you know, Fujifilm announced that in late November, the Fujifilm X-T20 will get a firmware update, that will allow you to use the touch screen in EVF mode. In fact, the official Fuji news here still says it will be available in late November.

However, that might change soon.

FR-reader Özgür contacted Fujirumors (thanks), and told us that Fujifilm Netherlands informed him via facebook here the X-T20 firmware update has been postponed. They say (translated by a Dutch speaking FR-reader)

The update appears to be more complicated that initially anticipated and has been temporarily delayed, however, it is sure that it will come. It is important, of course, that this update works well without problems or errors.”

FujiRumors already reported about some technical difficulties with the X-T20 firmware update a few weeks ago. Now, the X-T20 will continue to be covered with Kaizen love for as much as possible, but Fujifilm has to invest a considerable amount of time and money into proper coding.

I have asked Fujifilm Netherlands in the comments on facebook, if also the X-T2 firmware will be delayed, and they answered here:

For as far as we know the date for the X-T2 FW update will remain the same

And in the meantime, today 11 Fujifilm cameras got a firmware update. It only adds support for the upcoming XF80mm macro, but we explain here, why should update your camera anyway, even if you don’t plan to buy the XF80.

And again, here are all the download links for the 11 Fuji cameras

And here are our facebook communities

Fujifilm Releases Firmware Updates for 11 Fuji X Cameras

11 Fujifilm X series cameras just got an update to support the Fujinon XF80mm 1:1 macro. The lens itself will be released on November 30

The compatibility is added with XF80mmF2.8 R LM OIS WR Macro. The accuracy of AF function is improved when the lens is attached.

Not included in the updates are the Fujifilm X-T2 and X-T20 (which will get an update in “late November”), X-Pro2 (to be updated “late December”) and X-E3 (X-E3 Firmware Rumors here).

FUJIRUMORS RECOMMENDS: update your camera in any case, even if you do not plan to get the XF80mm. Fujifilm often implements “undocumented fixes“, which can be as small as a typo in the menu, but also more significant bug fixes and improvements.

Tips for Updating your Firmware

National Geographic Declares Fujifilm X-T2 Best Overall Compact Travel Camera 2017… Top 10 Ranking Includes X-T20 and X100F

The end of 2017 is approaching, so get ready for many “Top gear of the year” and similar articles appearing on the web. So let’s start, this time with National Geographic, who listed their Top 10 compact cameras for travels.

This year, there are 3 Fuji cameras in the ranking, the Fujifilm X-T2, the X100F and the X-T20 (in 2015 Nat Geo awarded 2 Fuji cameras, the X-T1 and X100T, as reported here).

Read the whole article “Top 10 Compact Cameras for Travelers” at nationalgeographic here and click on the product link in the list below for specs & price:

About the X-T2 they write:

The X-T2 has everything one would want in a professional DSLR in a APS-C mirrorless camera. The combination of quality manual dials to control settings, speed of image processing, the amazing line lenses and the build quality make this camera such a pleasure to use that many professionals now use this camera as their main system. You simply cannot go wrong with the X-T2 as a high end travel camera; it’s an all-star, all-around team player that just won’t quit or let you down, no matter where your travels take you.”

However, in the features list of the X-T2 and X-T20 they mention the “five-axis image stabilization“. Now, Fujifilm has arguably the best optical lens image stabilization system on the market, but so far, IBIS is something that will come… in a not so distant future ;) .

Anyway, do you agree with this list?

Sure, the Fujifilm X-T2 has weather sealing, so definitely a nice to have feature on travels. On the other hand, nothing can beat the simplicity and lightness of travelling with the X100F. And coupled with the WCL-X100 and TCL-X100, the X100F is a wonderful mini-system with leaf shutter and build-in ND-filter, that makes it so much more versatile than “just” for street photography.

But let’s see what you think about it :)
