NEW FIRMWARE will bring faster shutter speed (1/32000), better movie capabilities, faster AF and more (new source)

Share

 photo neukai_zpsdf3dff47.png

As you might have already read here on Fujirumors, a trusted source told me that a new firmware for the X-T1 will come.

Now, also a new source told me about it and shared some details. Keep in mind that also this source just told me about an X-T1 update… but personally I hope this doesn’t exclude the possibility that other X-cameras will be updated, too.

Here the rumored features:

  • shutter speed will increase from 1/4000 to 1/32000

  • better movie capabilities

  • faster/better AF (including phase detection on instant AF)

  • some other minor improvements (like new film simulation modes)

  • firmware updates will be released in October and December

Is an electronic shutter coming via firmware update? Now that would be an update worth of the word “KAIZEN” :-).

It’s a rumor, from a brand new source, so take it…. CUM GRANO SALIS.

EXCLUSIVE !!! Rico’s First Look at a “new X-camera” coming August 26 early in the morning (London Time)!

Share

 photo XPCt_zps9a1e7e6c.jpg

Good news everybody!

Rico just told me that he is preparing a First Look to a “new X-camera“. It will be ready for the 26th of August. Well, you know what is rumored to come, but Rico just said something about a “new X-camera“.

THE TIME: Fuji usually announces new gear and firmware early in the morning here in Europe. This means it should happen around midnight in New York.

There will be also a LIVE BLOGGING session on that day. I’ll collect every bit of information about the new X, that I can find on the world-wide web, which is worth to be shared and you should not miss.

But just look at the Rico’s previous First Looks (like the one on the X-T1 here) and you’ll understand why I feel save to say, that you will hardly find a better initial report than Rico’s one.

So stay tuned and follow Fujirumors also via facebook, google+, RSS-feed and twitter.

Fujifilm X-PRO2 to be unveiled at Photokina but released “about this time next year” ? (AS)

Share

 photo photokinaXpro2_zps198f810b.jpg

The same source, who told us about the announcement of the X30 on August 26th, shared more rumors with us.

The source said that the battery of the X30 will be the one used in the X100/S (the NP-95). I’ve checked it with trusted sources, and they say that it is correct.

Now, I believe that both rumors this source shared with us (announcement 26 August + the NP-95) are correct. Sure, EVERYTHING shared until now is NOT CONFIRMED by facts… we will see if it is wrong or right after the 26th. So it is important that we take it with a GRAIN OF SALT.

MESSAGE TO THE SOURCE: in case you decide to share more rumors, you know what to say so that I can identify you in future… and thanks for sharing.

X-PRO2 RUMOR

The same anonymous source said (still unconfirmed by trusted sources, so take it with a grain of salt):

1) The Fujifilm X-PRO2 will be unveiled at the photokina, but is expected to be released about “this time next year” (this means one year after Photokina 2014).

If the source is right, this means a whole year will pass between the unveiling and the shipping of the X-PRO2. Therefore I wonder if at the photokina we will really see how the 100% final X-PRO2 will be, or if the photokina will be used for a sort of X-PRO2 tech demonstration (improved hybrid viewfinder and so on), but with the final version to be announced later on.

2) Fujifilm doesn’t see the point in Full Frame and will keep the ASP-C sensor.

3) The ASP-C sensor of the Fujifilm X-PRO2 will have more MP.

This could fit with the 24MP rumor shared in the past, although the source just said “more megapixel”.

4) Price: The Fujifilm X-PRO2 will be the top of the X-line, so it will be more expensive than the X-T1. At the moment the price tag seems to be about 20% to 30% higher (than the X-T1 price)… always according to this same source.

The source shared a few more rumors that I’d like to discuss with other sources first. I’ll update you as soon as possible.
