New Fujifilm FF190005 Camera Registered – Two Fuji Cameras Coming Soon?

Fujifilm has registered yet another camera, the FF190005.

This means we now have two more cameras (in addition to the X-Pro3) coming in not so distant future:

Usually it takes 1 to 3 months (but in some cases also 6 months), until a registered camera is officially announced.

Many are dreaming of Fujifilm X-H2, Fujifilm X-T4, Fujifilm X100V (X200). Follow FujiRumors, to find out the truth ;).

Fujifilm X-H1, Still Worth Buying? Fuji X-H1 IBIS Compared to Sony a7iii (with a Clear Winner)

Fujifilm X-H1 vs Sony A7III IBIS Comparison

When the Fujifilm X-H1 came out, it was the first Fujifilm camera with IBIS (well, after this one actually, but…).

Inevitably everybody started comparing Fuji’s IBIS to the ones available on other systems, especially on Sony… and so did Lee Zavitz now!

He now grabbed a Fujifilm X-H1 and tested its IBIS using the latest Fujifilm X-H1 firmware.

If you click the video above (which will start at 4:55), you will see it compared side by side to the IBIS on the Sony a7iii. The difference is hugely in favor of the Fujifilm X-H1. Actually it’s that bad on the Sony a7III, that one might think IBIS was disabled.

On the Sony IBIS side, things do not really get better with the smaller Sony A6600.

As we reported just yesterday Gordon from Cameralabs said that:

in some cases tuning on IBIS on Sony A6600 almost gives as shaky results as with IBIS turned OFF“.

Don’t get me wrong, Sony is great and we are all lucky to have such a wonderful camera manufacturer on the market. They deserve all the success they have, and in some areas they lead the pack (eye-aufofocus).

But sometimes, like IBIS and weather sealing (as reported here), one could get the impression Sony wants to put those specs on paper as a selling point, but they don’t really put all the R&D necessary to make them work at their best.

Not sure if Fujifilm should do the same, meaning don’t care much about how well the IBIS on their smaller X-T prototypes currently works, and just release an X-T4 or X-T40 with IBIS as soon as possible.

At the end of the day it will show up on the specs sheets, and hence become a selling point, no matter how well or not it works.

Or maybe Fujifilm should remain obsessed by how well their stuff actually works, and just wait until their smaller IBIS unit works properly.

Fujifilm X-H1, Still Worth Buying?

So, is the Fujifilm X-H1 still worth buying?

Well, now that you can get it with vertical grip and 2 additional batteries for $999 only, there can be only 1 possible answer: I don’t know, it’s up to you! :)

But if your answer is “yes”, then you have on big problem: the Fujifilm X-H1 is back-ordered on many stores, so good luck finding one.

Camera Industry and Future Trends: “Fujifilm Does it Right and Will Grow Strong”

Stephan Wiesner, a very popular German youtuber and photographer, has published his 2019 camera roundup and future trend predictions, which include also Fujifilm.

Just as it happened for the Italian guy, who left Fuji for Sony, and then switched back to Fuji, also in this case you are lucky, because also German (as Italian) is one of the three languages I manage better than English.

So, if you have no idea what Stephan is talking about, down below is a transcription for you. You are welcome.

Now let’s wait for a video to share in my third language ;).

Three Fujifilm Cameras Registered, But When Will they Come? Time Span Between Fujifilm X/GFX Registrations and Announcement

Fujifilm has recently registered three cameras:

The inevitable question that pops up in the comments when this happens, is how long the time span is between registration of a camera and its announcement.

To answer that, I looked back to the past time span between registrations and announcements, and here is what we see:

  • 1 month = 4 cameras (X-T2, X-E3, X-T100, X-T30)
  • 2 months = 3 cameras (X-T20, X100F, XF10)
  • 3 months = 3 cameras (X-T3, GFX50R, GFX100)
  • 6 months = 1 camera (X-H1)

It’s clear that we usually get a camera between 1 and 3 months after registration (with exception of X-H1, which needed 6 months).

Clearly this would indicate of 3 cameras coming within November, although the X-H1 shows that a longer wait is not impossible, hence an announcement within February 2020 (6 months).

What could these cameras be?

The contact form on FujiRumors is open for any hint (thanks), and the comments for the wildest speculations :).

3½ Reasons Why Fujifilm is Waiting so Long to Release the Fujifilm X100V

Fujifilm X100V

When I recently posted the huge Fujifilm camera release timeline, I made one single error, that thankfully you guys corrected in the comments.

I calculated, that the Fujifilm X100 series got a refresh every 2 years, which is absolutely correct. But then, based on that refresh cycle, I said that the X100V should come two years after the X100F (which was announced in January 2017).

But this would mean the Fujifilm X100V should have hit the market in January 2019, which evidently it has not. Our sources say it will come at some point in 2020.

Now, not to justify my error, but, well, I run FujiRumors 365 days a year non stop, and I wrote that particular article in a bar, drinking beer, while waiting for the rain to stop and finally go out shooting again with my X-E3, as you can see here. Well, at this point I’ll just say is that it rained a lot that day ;)

I apologize if I confused you guys, so I felt I need to address this in a dedicated article.

But also, this is a good opportunity to quickly discuss, why Fujifilm is waiting so long, to finally give us a successor to the Fujifilm X100F.

Down below 3½ reasons for that:

“Theory Says, all Future Fujifilm Cameras will have IBIS” – Fuji X Photographer Jens Krauer at FujiLove Podcast with Hugh Brownstone

Fujifilm X photographer Jens Krauer, who runs the FujiLove podcast, hosted Hugh Brownstone in his latest episode.

Both have excellent connections with Fujifilm, and I’d like to highlight the gear related part of their talk.

  • Hugh fell in love with manual controls on Fujifilm cameras
  • IBIS makes a huge difference for stills and video
  • Hugh is waiting for the Fujifilm X-H2, to replace his Panasonic GH5
  • Jens says that there is a theory floating around, that all Fujifilm cameras will have IBIS
  • Hugh says in this talk to Fujifilm managers, they confirmed him that shrinking IBIS is important, so that they can put it into smaller cameras
  • Hugh says that, if Fuji could, they would put IBIS in an X-T4
  • Hugh prefers the definition “super full frame” instead of “large format” for the Fujifilm GFX
  • Hugh says taking the dials of the GFX100 makes absolute sense
  • Hugh would like a GFX50S with dials and without that brick on the back
  • Jens says he thinks Fujifilm is working on that
  • Hugh says Fuji should refresh their lens lineup to make them more silent and suitable for video
  • Hugh loves the Fujinon MK lenses, although he’d prefer to have 16mm instead of 18mm on the wide end
  • Hugh desires a tilting EVF for Fujifilm’s APS-C cameras [currently only available only on GFX system]
  • His desert island gear would be a Fujifilm X-T3 with XF35mm f/1.4
  • Fujifilm X shooter are different (in the positive way) from fans of other brands, Hugh notices that in the comments to his Fuji reviews compared to Sony etc.

The whole 1+ hour episode is well worth to listen, so head over at sticher or Fujilove.

Thanks to the anonymous FR reader for letting me know, and looking forward to hear from you again ;).

Fujifilm GFX100: No IBIS/OIS Combo, X-H1 vs GFX IBIS, Fujifilm GFX 100 Media Sheets, F-Log and More

In a recent interview, Fujifilm managers unveiled that it took them 3 years to develop the IBIS mechanism for the Fujifilm GFX100.

1.5 years were shared with the Fujifilm X-H1 IBIS mechanism development. But once the IBIS for X-H1 was ready, it took them additional 1.5 years for Fujifilm GFX100 IBIS.

At Fujikina 2019 in Toyko, Fujifilm displayed the ASP-C and MF IBIS units. You can see the difference in the image below.

Imaging-resource also shared a video and some GFX100 media slides. They say:

  • IBIS and OIS do not work together. Could change in future with firmware update, as it happened with Fujifilm X-H1
  • 4K@30p full sensor readout, but uses line skipping in vertical direction

The Fujifilm X-H1 IBIS looks small next to the Fujifilm GFX100 one. However, the X-H1 IBIS is still too big. It’s one of Fuji’s priorities to make it even smaller in order to give us a smaller Fujifilm X-H2, or maybe even fit it into a future Fujifilm X-T4 and X-T40 or any other camera that might come down the road.
