New Fujifilm Camera FF200002 Registered on January 31, 2021, and Why It’s a Curious Case (X-E4)

Share

FR-reader Kent (thanks), just informed me that he spotted the registration made on January 31, 2021, of a new Fujifilm digital camera with the code name FF200002.

The strange thing here is, that in terms of registrations we had two registered cameras recently:

  • FF200001 registered Sept. 2, 2020 = X-S10
  • FF200003 registered Dec. 14, 2020 = GFX100S

It was just a matter of time until the FF200002 would appear, and it did so on January 31 at the launchstudio bluetooth registration page here.

So which camera is the FF200002?

The answer is: the Fujifilm X-E4!

I know that, because I have watched countless of youtube videos about the X-E4, and in one of them I noticed that when the screen was flipped out, on the backside of the camera you could read “FF200002“.

But it’s strange: the X-E4 is the first camera that gets registered after it has been announced. We told you in this article that it Fujifilm usually registers cameras from 1 to 6 months ahead of announcement.

Well, I guess this means from now on we have to count also with the possibility, that Fujifilm will announce cameras without them appearing first on some sort of registration website. But don’t worry about that, I will let you know in advance anyway what will come ;).

So let’s update our original article, where we illustrate the time span between registration and announcement of new Fujifilm gear:

  • registered 1 month before announcement = 4 cameras (X-T2, X-E3, X-T100, X-T30)
  • registered 2 months before announcement = 3 cameras (X-T20, X100F, XF10)
  • registered 3 months before announcement = 3 cameras (X-T3, GFX50R, GFX100)
  • registered 6 months before announcement = 2 cameras (X-H1, X100V)
  • registered 4 days after after announcement = 1 camera (X-E4)

The Latest and Greatest: Fujifilm X-E4, XF70-300mm, GFX100S and GF80mmF1.7 Mini-Roundup

Share

Let’s start the week with a mini-roundup dedicated to the latest and greatest Fujifilm gear.

Missing in the roundup list is the Fujinon XF27mmF2.8 R WR. But do we really need reviews here? I have already put my XF27mmF2.8 for sale on the facebook market as I will replace it with the new version as soon as I can. I don’t care about the reviews. The optics are the same, which means the image quality is fantastic for such a small lens. All I want is an aperture ring, which is enough for me to “upgrade”.

As for sales on FujiRumors, the best selling gear is the Fujifilm GFX100S, followed by the X-E4 (all time best selling X-E camera on FR), the GF80mmF1.7 and finally its basically a tie between the XF70-300mm and XF27mmF2.8 R WR.
