Fujifilm X-A5 is Coming

Fujifilm X-A5

The Fujifilm X-A line is incredibily popular in Asia, and in some countries, like Thailand, the X-A line sells better than any other digital camera with interchangeable lenses (Canon and Nikon included).

The currently most recent iteration of this camera is the Fujifilm X-A3, announced back in August 25, 2016, with flippy screen and 24 MP ASP-C Bayer sensor with no on sensor phase detection pixels (PDAF).

Now Fujifilm is working on the Fujifilm X-A5. I don’t have the specs now, but would be nice if it would have PDAF.

The X-A5 could also be one of the 2 cameras Fujifilm registered bluetooth for (the first one is the Fujifilm X-E3).

And in case you wonder why the successor of the X-A3 is not called X-A4, keep in mind that this camera is extremely popular in Asia, where the Nr.4 brings bad luck. Just check out “tetraphobia” on wikipedia.

REMINDER: Fujifilm will have an announcement on October 25. The Fujifilm Instax SP-3 square printer will come… and who knows if there will be other surprises ;) .

TheCameraStoreTV Fujifilm Live Edition: XF 80mm Macro, X-E3 and More

What a coincidence… just when I had my babysitting break of 1 hour, TheCameraStoreTV started a live stream with Fuji Guy Jarry Julien.

So I could intereact with the show and also with prominent Fuji Guys like Billy, who was active in the comments. Btw, Billy said in the comments he thinks he saw me taking a picture of him at Photokina 2016. Yep, that’s the image… and I’ve found Waldo, too :D

Fuji Video Edition

At the beginning of the X-series journey, most X-shooters didn’t bother about using video on X-series cameras.

An example of how little we cared, is when back in July 2013 a faulty X-Pro1 firmware update introduced a serious bug in video mode… well, that was the day that most of us discovered that the X-Pro1 can actually shoot video at all, and we installed the faulty firmware anyway :) .

However, things have changed since then, and people are now looking more and more for hybrid stills/video cameras. It took Fujifilm longer than other companies, but they finally catched up, thanks to X-TransIII and X-Processor Pro camera.

The next “level up” in Fujifilm video world will come with the Fujifilm X-T2S, thanks to IBIS (in body image stabilization).

Anyway, I thought it might be high time to work on a little roundup dedicated to Fuji & Video.

Of course, being about video, this roundup includes youtube videos, so save your mobile data and feel free check it out when you are connected to WiFi network.

Fujifilm X-H1 Rumor: IBIS and OIS Do Not (Currently) Work Together

Fujifilm X-T2S

UPDATE: Fujifilm changed the name from X-T2s to X-H1. All rumored specs remain the same

Hey guys… I got some details about how IBIS on the X-T2S will work (at least currently).

Unlike we see on some Olympus and Panasonic cameras, the IBIS on the X-T2S can’t be combined with the OIS. So you have to use either IBIS or OIS, but they won’t work together.

What I am trying to find out now, if this is something that could be implemented later on via Firmware update or not. But at launch, I do not expect the Fujifilm X-T2S to have the “double stabilization” feature.

I remind you that it seems that the X-T2S will also not have the sensor shift multishot feature.

Fujifilm X-H1 IBIS Camera Will Have Better Hand Grip Compared to X-T2

Fujifilm X-T2s - the Successor of the Fujifilm X-T2

Fujifilm X-T2S

UPDATE: Fujifilm changed the name from X-T2s to X-H1. All rumored specs remain the same

Here is a little Fujifilm X-T2S update… and I guess it comes not really surprising for most of you guys.

You know that the Fujifilm X-T2S will be Fuji’s first (actually second) camera with in body image stabilization. I assume it will keep the design philosophy of the X-T line, but of course there will be some changes, in order to accommodate the IBIS mechanism and also to improve usability when shooting videos.

I hear that one of these changes will be a better/bigger hand grip on the Fujifilm X-T2S compared to the (soon to be discounted) Fujifilm X-T2.

Considering that the Fujifilm X-T2S IBIS camera will probably also be the first choice for X-shooters interested in the huge “OIS-less” Fujinon MK18-55mm F2.9 and MK50-130mm T2.9 lenses, a bigger hand grip just makes sense… although one could also simply attach an optional grip, as Alessandro noted in the comments.

Fujifilm said the MK18-55mm F2.9 and MK50-130mm T2.9 cine lenses will hit the market in 2018 (originally planed for the end of 2017). What a coincidence that at the same time according to this rumor, a Fuji camera with IBIS, the X-T2S, will hit the market, too ;).

That’s it for now, but don’t miss the future news and rumors and…

Fujifilm X-H1 IBIS Camera with 24MP X-Trans III Sensor

Fujifilm X-T2s - the Successor of the Fujifilm X-T2

Fujifilm X-T2S

UPDATE: Fujifilm changed the name from X-T2s to X-H1. All rumored specs remain the same

One of the questions I get regulary via email is if the Fujifilm X-T2S, the successor to the X-T2, will have a new X-Trans sensor. So I hope to end the confusion, by sharing today, that, from what I hear, the Fujifilm X-T2S will have the same 24MP X-TransIII sensor of the Fujifilm X-T2.

The main upgrade over the Fujifilm X-T2 is the in body image stabilization (IBIS).

I have the feeling that this could be a very hot autumn, and that a whirlwind of Fuji rumors is coming ;)

Fujifilm X-E3: Reviews, Bugs and Settings Tips and Tricks

Feedback Time

So the Fujifilm X-E3 is out, and out Fujifilm X-E facebook group is running hot with feedback about the X-E3.

Lot’s of great feedback, but also some bug reports. Follow the discussions at the Fujifilm X-E facebook group.

The Flickering

N. Kusumadi
shared at the X-E facebook group here

Anyone else encountering this flickering bug when Face and or Eye detect AF is enabled on the X-E3? I thought it was something to do with fluorescent lighting but it happens outdoors too!
I’ve tried it with the XF16-55mmF2.8 and the XF16mmF1.4 now and can reproduce it under certain conditions.

1) Set the camera to DR400
2) Switch off the camera and switch it on again

Would you guys mind trying this out? DR Auto, 100 or 200 doesn’t produce this…
