Fujifilm X100V, X-H2, X-T4 and Any Other Fuji Camera will NOT Have X-Pro3 Hidden Screen – TRUSTED SOURCE

Fujifilm X100V

Let’s keep it short and clear: the Fujifilm X100V will NOT have the hidden LCD screen of the Fujifilm X-Pro3.

And to be even more clear: the Fujifilm X-Pro3 will be the ONLY Fujifilm camera with the hidden screen for the years to come. It’s unique to X-Pro3. Whatever comes, Fujifilm X-H2, Fujifilm X-T4, X-T40, X-E4, X100V, any GFX camera and more…. none of them will have the hidden screen.

Fujifilm X-Pro4? Well, I don’t know if it still has the hidden screen. As it is scheduled for 2023 anyway, I think not even Fujifilm itself knows at this point.

I hope that was clear enough. ;)

Fujifilm X-H2 Mockup – Ideas to Set it Apart from Fujifilm X-T4

Fujifilm X-H2

Fujifilm hinted it already: both lines, the X-H and X-T, will continue to exist in future.

There is just one thing Fujifilm needs to figure out: how to differentiate them enough!

An idea comes from FR-reader Brad, who made a Fujifilm X-H2 mockup for us. Here is what he wrote to me:

  • Video centric X-A7 16:9 fully articulating screen (I’m ok with the current double-tilt too, but 16:9 would be nice).
  • If Fuji wants each of their camera lines to have a unique voice, then the X-H2 would have less photography controls and more video. So I removed the mode dial and added the Nikon Z6 video switch. This wouldn’t work as cleanly as on the Z6, since manual controls exist up top. It’s not like they’re going to add tiny motors to the dials, but this is for dreaming.
  • Replaced AF/AE-L with AF-ON, because that’s the only one I use.
  • I hate the Fuji joystick, so I used the Z6’s

So what do you think about it? Comments and additional ideas are welcome.

Thanks Brad, and check him out at bradwooten.com and b.e.wooten Instagram (NSFW).

Mega Fujifilm X-H1 Rebate Ends Today and a Fujifilm X-H2 Rumor Recap

Fujifilm X-H1

As you can see from the screenshot below, the official Fujifilm page writes:

The FUJIFILM GFX System and X Series Camera Body and Camera Kit Product Savings and Promotional Offers are effective from August 4 – September 28, 2019 or while dealer supplies last.

However, it seems that the Fujifilm summer deals last day is actually today, September 29. So you have a few more hours to grab the super discounted Fujifilm X-H1.

Keep in mind: BHphoto will stop taking orders at 6:30 PM ET, so you have to order before, in order to be eligible for the mega X-H1 rebate.

Yep, the Fujifilm X-H1 is a Steal Now, but the Fujifilm X-H2 Remains a Mirage

X-H1 Steal

The Fujifilm X-H1 is hugely discounted, and the best deal you can get in the Fujifilm X world right now.

And inevitably, I keep up getting asked if this isn’t a clear, unequivocal and irrefutable indication that the Fujifilm X-H2 is just around the corner.

Guys, if I was you, I’d bet all my money on an imminent arrival of the Fujifilm X-H2. Everything just fits, the three mysterious registered Fujifilm cameras, the big discount on the X-H1.

But I am FujiRumors, and I can only share, what I believe to be true, based on what our sources tell us.

And what I say is that no Fujifilm X-H2 is coming anytime soon. I hope to be wrong, but I am afraid I am not.

Release Timeline for Fujifilm X-T4, X-H2, X-T40, X-Pro3, X100V, X-E4, X-T200 and X-A6 Based on Fuji’s Previous Camera Releases

Fujifilm Timeline

Almost 1 year ago, I published a release timeline of Fujifilm cameras, and, based on that timeline, I made guesses on when a successor could come.

Turns out that, so far, our timeline was pretty accurate. In fact, based on Fuji’s release schedule, we predicted:

  • Prediction: X-T30 in February 2019 – Reality: January 2019 – Accuracy: 1 month off
  • Prediction: X-Pro3 in January 202o – Reality: around October 2019 – Accuracy: about 3 months off

Now I thought it’s time to update our timeline, because:

  • some cameras have already been announced (X-T30) and others will be announced soon (X-Pro3)
  • this time we include cameras not listed last time (X-T200 and X-A6)

Down below you find the updated release timeline for:

The X-T4/X-H2 Grain of Salt Corner

Keep in mind that this camera replacement timeline is NOT based ON RUMORS, but on past camera release schedule of Fujifilm.

Hence, take it with a grain of salt, especially when it comes to Fujifilm X-H2 and Fujifilm X-T4 release. The timing between X-H1 and X-T3 has proven to be very damaging for X-H1 sales, so there might be some changes here.

In fact, according to our sources, the Fujifilm X-H2 might not even come in 2020! But I want to wait for more details and confirmations, before changing the below timeline.

Speaking of X-H2 and X-T4, the FujiRumors community has voted on various Fujifilm X-H2 and X-T4 release timing options. Check out the poll results here (I voted for the option currently on the 3rd position).

Fujifilm X-H2 and Fujifilm X-T4: How Should Fujifilm Time their Release? POLL

Fujifilm X-H2 and Fujifilm X-T4

A Fujifilm manager recently said it here: the Fujifilm X-H line will continue to evolve separately from the Fujifilm X-T line.

To me that makes sense, both lines appeal to different type of photographers, and both lines have all the potential to be successful in future.

But the big question is: in order for both the X-H2 and X-T4 to be successful, how should Fujifilm time their release?

The FujiRumors community is pretty split on this topic, so I thought I launch a poll to see what most of you guys think is strategically the best move. And keep in mind, as proven multiple times, Fujifilm manager do read you! So, vote wisely and comment elegantly ;).

NOTE: Fujifilm has said multiple times that one of their goals is to bring IBIS into smaller cameras, so I guess this means they will try to give us a Fuji X-T4 with IBIS. Keep this in mind when voting.

Fujifilm X-Pro3, X-H2, X100V, Panasonic Full Frame Fiasco, XF33mm F1.0, GFX 100 – Breaking May FR-Rumors and Top 15 Articles

Top of the Posts

May was an extremely busy month, with 79 articles written in 31 days, the GFX100 live blogging and… my marriage (no, can’t buy any new gear for a while with what that cost ;).)

In May, FujiRumors has also delivered several breaking rumors about the following Fujifilm cameras:

  • Fujifilm X-Pro3
  • Fujifilm X-H2
  • Fujifilm X100V (or X200)

I consider all rumors 100% accurate.

It’s not our style to mislead and clickbait people with fake made up rumors, sadly a practice that is going strong these days. FR is well fueld with reliable rumors, we do not need to go down the desperate fake rumor road.

And I tell you more…

I now slow down a few days to recover, but then  I’ll be back with rumors, especially with one that might surprise you positively. You can dream now and I’ll tell you later, once I have green light from the source :).

Back to us, and to the very busy month of May.

So many things happened, that I thought to list the top 15 read articles for May down below, so you can catch up in case you missed them.

Fujifilm Manager: “70% of GFX Users Came from Full Frame. X-H and X-T Line Will Both Evolve in Future” – Hope for Fujifilm X-H2

Fujifilm GFX100

Fujifilm Channel X has published an 45 minutes interview with Fujifilm managers from Fujikina 2019. See the video above (sadly not so good audio quality) and a summary down below.

Fujifilm GFX 100: B&H Photo, AmazonUS, Adorama, Focuscamera, CalumetDE, ParkcamerasUK, JessopsUK, PCHstore

The Market

  • Fujifilm GFX100 market is not the traditional medium format market
  • GFX 50 already aimed to amateur customers in addition to high-end photography
  • 70% of Fujifilm GFX 50R/S buyers come from full frame. So not only people switch from Hasselblad and Phase One to GFX, but also FF users
  • the GFX system expanded the larger format market, and GFX100 will continue to expand it
  • GFX100 should expand market also towards movie shooting photographer

The GFX100 strenghts

  • compared to full frame, GFX system has better image quality in terms of ISO performance, dynamic range and resolution
  • traditionally large format camera (including film) are big and for tripod use, but GFX system is smaller, and GFX100 has also IBIS, hence less need for tripod
  • GFX100 is about autofocus, mobility, quality

EVF

  • Fujifilm GFX 50 EVF works on GFX100, but GFX100 EVF on GFX50 will not work
