PhotoKina 2018 is Ready for Fujifilm GFX 50R and Fujifilm GFX 100S at 07:30 AM EST and FujiRumors is There for You!

FujiKina

Today Fujifilm will unveil the Fujifilm GFX 50R and the Fujifilm GFX 100S. The press event starts at 07:30 AM New York time.

And yep, I am here at Photokina 2018, and today I smuggled myself through the security controls and took a look at the Fujifilm booth, which they are building up right now.

Sadly the press conference room is under the highest level of control, and no chance to enter without press-card.

However, I noticed 2 Fuji guys entering the press hall, and one was holding a rangefinder medium format film camera in his hand (maybe the Fujifilm GF670, but it was hard to see exactly).

It’s pretty clear that they are going to show their rangefinder medium format heritage to the press, and then unveil the long rumored Fujifilm GFX 50R (which you can see who it looks like here).

Of course I will be live blogging non stop, so make sure to stay tuned on FujiRumors via Facebook, Instagram, RSS-feed and Twitter and to join our Fujiflm GFX facebook group as well as our Fujifilm GFX page.

P.S.: and of course on the way to Cologne I stopped at the Oktoberfest… it was simply fantastic… at least so they told me, since I can’t remember that much ;). But now I am back full power and ready for the ultimate blogging on FujiRumors!

Fujifilm X-Pro3 Concepts and Share Your X-Pro3 Wish List

Fujifilm X-Pro2 concept developed by Fujifilm and shared at senzo.co

Fujifilm X-Pro3

One of the top questions I got after the announcement of the Fujifilm X-T3, is when the Fujifilm X-Pro3 will come.

Well guys, in the Fuji world, rangefinder cameras like the Fujifilm X-Pro and X-E line, do not sell nearly as well as their SLR-like brothers, such as the X-T20 or the new X-T3.

Hence, Fujifilm is never in a hurry to release new iterations of those cameras. The Fujifilm X-Pro line for example even skipped the X-Trans II generation, and went from X-Trans I directly to X-Trans III.

And so far I have not heard anything reliable about the Fujifilm X-Pro3.

So all we can do for now, is imagine how we would like the Fujifilm X-Pro3 to be.

X-Pro3 Design

A FR-reader send me this Flickr link, where H.B. Kang imagines an X-Pro3 with vertical grip and new colors.

So I thought, why not, let’s talk Fujifilm X-Pro3 and start dreaming how it should be.

In addition to Kang’s X-Pro3, I will add down below some real Fujifilm X-Pro2 (and X-Pro1s) concept that Fujifilm studied during the X-Pro2 development. We have already shown them in this FujiRumors post, and you can find more images at senzo.co here.

I will start by launching a poll, where you can vote the top 3 features you’d like to see on the Fujifilm X-Pro3. Vote, and then let your imagination soar free in the comments.

NOTE: I mention the additional dials of the Olmypus PEN F in the poll. If you don’t know how it looks like check it out the images at BHphoto.

For the Fujifilm X-Pro3, I want... (max. 3 selections)

Fujifilm GFX 100S Final Announcement 2nd Quarter 2019

Fujifilm GFX 100S

According to our sources, the final announcement (with full specs & price) of the Fujifilm GFX 100S is currently scheduled for the 2nd quarter of 2019 (April to June). This is a long term rumor, so from here to spring 2019 Fujifilm might change date. I’ll make sure to inform you if this happens.

My guess is that it will be around April/May, hence shorty ahead (or exactly at) photokina 2019, which will take place from May 8 to 11.

As we told you recently, there will be a “development annoncement” of the Fujifilm GFX 100S already on September 25, 2018 at 07:30 AM New York time. We won’t get the full specs nor the price, but we will see mock-ups and maybe even working prototypes of the Fujifilm GFX 100S.

On the same day (September 25) Fujifilm will announce the Fujifilm GFX 50R.

PhotoKina 2018: The Year DSLRs Died. What to Expect from Fujifilm and will FujiRumors be There?

images I took at photokina 2016… can you find Waldo

The Year of Mirrorless

This years’ photokina will probably the most exciting of the last 20 years.

We will assist to the death of DSLR’s (that’s it my friends, just accept it), and open the new era of mirrorless.

Paraphrasing the famous sentence from the movie Deadline we could say “that’s technology, baby, there is nothing you can do about it, nothing“.

Sure, the transition from DSLR to mirrorless won’t happen overnight. But that’s the trend. And that’s why Canon and Nikon are starting to get serious about mirrorless, too.

On this years photokina we will see the following new mirrorless cameras from Fujifilm:

Not a rumor, but regarding Fujifilm lenses, I’d not be surprised to see:

  • Fujinon GF 100-200mm F4.5-5.6
  • Fujinon GF 35mm F2.8
  • Fujinon GF 20-36mm F3.5-4.5
  • GF pancake lens is not confirmed
  • and of course the XF200mmF2 and XF8-16mmF2.8

Mock-ups:

  • Fujinon XF16-80mmF4
  • Fujinon XF16mmF2.8
  • Fujinon XF33mmF1.0 (not sure)

FujiRumors @ Photokina

I am 80% sure I will be there, but if I go, I sadly I can’t be there for more than 1 or (best case) 2 days.

I was at photokina in 2016, also just for one 1 day, because my school principal didn’t give me more days off (and yet, when I came back, I had huge problems to focus on my job again).

In 2016, the by far busiest booth was the one of Fujifilm, but, between me and you, the most beautiful one was without a doubt the one of Leica (don’t tell Fuji, but I’ve spend hours (!!!) there).

This year, Fujifilm won’t have such an easy game to play like in 2016. The competition is strong, and that’s good for us customers.

The biggest problem?

Well, on the same Photokina days, there is also worlds largest beer festival, the Oktoberfest in Munich (I’ve never been there). So I stand in front of tough decisions: Oktoberfest or Photokina? Life can be so cruel!!!

Let me know in the poll, where I should go ;)

FujiRumors Should...

Fujifilm Shows Speed Improvements from X-Trans I to X-Trans IV

Fujifilm X-T3 Speed

I am probably one of the few people out there, who has owned them all: X-Trans 1 (stolen in Greece), X-Trans 2 (destroyed in a river) and X-Trans 3 (because it’s too sexy). And with every generation, the speed improvement of my Fujifilm cameras was noticable.

The new X-Trans 4 and X Processor 4 in the Fujifilm X-T3 raises the bar even further.

A media slide shared by the Spanish site Fujistas (translation) shows how much faster the new sensor and processor on the Fujifilm X-T3 are compared to its predecessors.

The new BSI sensor improves sensor readout, and the X Processor 4 is a massive improvement compared to everything else Fujifilm had in the past.

FUJIFILM Says FULL FRAME Does NOT Make Sense For them NOW and Compares Size, Weight, Price of APS-C with Full Frame

APS-C vs Full Frame

At the Spanish press event for the launch of the Fujifilm X-T3, Fujifilm has displayed a comparison between their Fujifilm X-T3 and a “mirrorless full frame” system. The media slides were published at the Spanish site albomedia.

The comparison should show, how Fujifilm’s APS-C system is better balanced in terms of size, weight and price compared to full frame. Well done Fuji, now you opened the Pandora box of equivalency… watch out what happens in the comments ;).

When asked if Fujifilm would enter Full Frame, Fujifilm answered:

We would have to start from scratch with the optics, and that would not make sense now

In a recent major poll here on FujiRumors, most FR-readers agree that Fujifilm should stick with their APS-C and medium format systems, and stay away from the full frame slaughter between Sony, Canon, Nikon, Panasonic and maybe even Olympus soon.

As a consequence to your vote, I have shared a list of advantages that APS-C offers over full frame.

Mirrorless vs DSLR

Then Fujifilm also displayed a chart, that shows the overall decline of the camera market, and that DSLR sales are affected most by this decline.

When asked what Fujifilm thinks about the Canon EOS R and the Nikon Z series, they answered:

” it’s good news, as it will allow mirrorless to grow. It is always better have 5% of a market of 20 million that 10% of a market of 5 million”

We already discussed this topic in our article “Canon and Nikon enter mirrorless, and Fujifilm is happy about it“.

Overview of the FUJIFILM Exhibition at Photokina 2018

As you know, Fujifilm has launched a dedicated Fujifilm Photokina microsite, where you can check out all the events planed for photokina.

Now they also published an official press release with all the details.

Well, actually not really all the details, since they don’t tell you that they will display also the Fujifilm GFX 50R, which will be announced on September 25 at 07:30 AM New York time :).

Here is the press release:
