Fujifilm Manager: XF18mmF1.4 Resolution Beast (Ready for Fujifilm X-H2?), Why No Focus Clutch, Better than XF16/1.4 and More

Fujifilm manager Ueno, who was in charge of the development of the brand new Fujinon XF18mm f/1.4 R LM WR, gave an interview in Japanese, where he talks about the development process of this lens, the difference from existing lenses, and how to use it properly.

Once again the challenge is represented by the automatic google translation tool on youtube. I went through this pain for you guys and you can find the summary down below.

I find it particularly interesting how the managers stressed the fact that one of the main goals of the XF18mmF1.4 focus was “resolution”, hinting that there would be higher megapixel cameras in future.

Now, FujiRumors told you exclusively that the Fujifilm X-H2 will come in 2022. I know, it’s only FujiRumors to tell you this, but it’s 100% accurate, trust me. Fujifilm itself has hinted several times that more megapixel will come in future, and may it have the 43 megapixel Sony sensor or something different, the Fujinon XF18mmf f/1.4 seems to be ready for that kind of resolution.

Another interesting aspect is why Fujifilm did not put the focus clutch on the XF18mm f/1.4 and what makes it better than the Fujinon XF16mmF1.4.

This and more you can find in the summary down below.

Fujifilm X-H2 with 8K DCI/UHD Video Coming 2022

As FujiRumors already broke a while ago, the Fujifilm X-H2 will come in 2022.

Of course I am investigating deeper, but today I’d like to share a rumor that has been reported to me by an anoymous source, that contacted me via rumor box.

The anonmyous source told me this:

X-H2 will be capable of 8K video recording, both 8K DCI and 8K UHD

Two things first:

  1. thanks to the source for sharing this tidbit with us
  2. if you (the anonymous source) would like, you can contact me again via rumor box and give yourself a nickname, so I can eventually recognize you in future. Also via email is great [fujirumor@gmail.com]

With that said, of course, as any anonmyous rumor, we invite you to take it with a grain of salt.

However, with the Canon EOS R5 and the Sony A1 entering the 8K territory, it’s also safe to assume that the rumor is correct and that Fujifilm will also join the 8K club sooner or later.

The question at this point is if it will be “just” 8K30p like on full frame cameras, or if the Fujifilm X-H2, thanks to its smaller sensor and hence faster sensor readout, will top them all maybe by offering 8K60p.

Because that’s what happened with the Fujifilm X-T3, which was launched with 4K60p and full frame needed lots of time to finally catch up with the X-T3 specs.

Maybe (speculation, not rumor!!!) the Fujifilm X-H2 will push the boundries of mirrorless video feature even more, stepping ahead of all competitors, just as the X-T3 did back in 2018, when it offered 4K60P long before any full frame camera could do that.

In case I hear anything in this regard, I will let you know here on FujiRumors.

BREAKING: Fujifilm X-H2 Will Come in 2022 and be Worth the Wait

Fujifilm X-H2

Ok, my little boy sleeps. So let’s rock it :).

Recently Fujifilm registered a new camera, the FF210001.

The top guess in the comments was that this is the Fujifilm X-H2, and I know why.

In fact, popular youtubers and websites either gave it as a fact or speculated that the Fujifilm X-H2 will come in 2021.

FujiRumors preferred not to join the “X-H2 in 2021” club. What we did, though, is to contact our sources and ask them what they think about it.

Well, according to multiple trusted sources, the Fujifilm X-H2 will come in 2022.

Also, our top trusted Japanese source enthusiastically wrote me it will be “well worth the wait“. We scheduled a skype talk for next days, so I hope to be able to get more details soon and be allowed to share them here on FujiRumors with you guys next.

Looks like the big breakthrough for the Fujifilm X-H2 that Fujifilm was talking about will happen, but still needs a bit more time.

Ah, one more thing: more rumors are coming ;).

Fujifilm X-T4 Anyone

Look, I own the Fujifilm X-T4, and I genuinely think that it’s an fantastic camera with the arguably best value for money ratio of any camera also in 2021.

Also, Fujifilm hinted that autofocus improvements will come via firmware update, so also this could help to make the waiting time for the Fujifilm X-H2 easier.

Good things take time. You want the X-H2 to be amazing. Fujifilm will deliver, but needs just a bit more time for that.

Fujicast Interview with Fujifilm Manager: Talking Breakthrough Fujifilm X-H2, X-E4 the Last 26 MP (?), Open Lens Protocols, X80 and More!

The latest Fujicast episode is now online, covering all the current Fujifilm announcements with Fujifilm’s UK Marketing Manager, Andreas Georghiades (GFX100S, GF80mmF1.7, X-E4, XF70-300mm and XF27mmMKII.

But as there is a podcast listener question corner, you can figure out that many questions gravitate towards future Fujifilm products and more. So they touch on Fujifilm X-H2, the open lens protocols, the X80 and more.

Kevin Mullins also speculates that the X-E4 might be the last X series camera featuring the 26MP X-Trans sensor and the manager says that there is indeed not much left to update with the 26MP sensor.

However, nobody knows what the first camera with a new sensor will be. There is still an X-T40 waiting to see the light of the day for example, which is such a loved line, that Fujifilm should definitely continue it in my opinion.

Down below you can find the full podcast as well as a summary:

DPRTV Predictions for 2021: Fujifilm X-H2 with Great Video Features plus Smaller and Cheaper Fujifilm GFX100

DPReview published their camera prediction video for 2021.

What will happen with Fujfiilm in 2021? Here is their guess.

  • big video year for Fujifilm
  • what was missing on X-T4 we will see in on the Fujifilm X-H2
  • X-H2 with headphone jack and less overheating concerns. Also high resolution viewfinder
  • A smaller Fujifilm GFX100 with lower resolution display, a bit worst battery life. Room for that sensor to get in a smaller and less expensive body

Chris and Jordan don’t say it will be called “GFX100S”. They just say it could be smaller GFX100 camera with 100 megapixel. But to be clear: it’s their guess, not a rumor or any insider information they share.

But if you follow FujiRumors, you’ll know it will be called Fujifilm GFX100S, you know it will come in early 2021, you know it will be smaller, and yet still have IBIS. For the most recent specs update on the Fujifilm GFX100S check out this article.

And if you read FujiRumors, then you’ll also know they missed out on another camera coming very soon ;).

If you want substantial and solid rumors, then something tells me you should not miss FujiRumors in the days, weeks and months to come ;).

Let’s Talk Fujifilm X-S10: Best Selling Mid-Range Ever on FujiRumors, Inspiration for Fujifilm X-H2 (?), More Reviews and Giveaway

Fujifilm X-S10 – A Success?

Recently here on FujiRumors we shared an official media sheet showing how Fujifilm perceives its 2020 digital camera range.

We analyzed it together and I shared the opinion, that between the X-T30 and X-S10, only one camera line might continue, and it will be the one that will sell more.

After my statement (which might well be wrong, it’s just my opinion), I got many questions asking me how the Fujifilm X-S10 was selling.

Well guys, I have no idea how it is selling on the worldwide market.

All I could do, was to check what the response was here on FujiRumors, by comparing the first 3 pre-orders of the X-S10 to the ones of the X-T30. The X-E line is out of this competition, as it is way too niche and can’t compete in terms of sales. Anyway, here is what I saw:

That came very surprising for me.

In fact, it’s the first time ever that mid-range Fujifilm camera was able to raise that kind of interest and curiosity among the FujiRumors community.

That’s even more astonishing, considering the fact that the X-S10 departs from the classic retro-control scheme that many of us love, going more into Sony territory (and as I said, it’s a clear attack on Sony & Co indeed).

The fact that the Fujifilm X-S10 was able to break through in terms of interest and sales also within the FujiRumors community, makes me quite optimistic not only for the success of the Fujifilm X-S10, but also for the future of this new line and the overall future of Fujifilm during the tough times of this “mirrorless war“.

Fujifilm X-H2 – Inspired by X-S10?

So, there seems to be vivid interest for this kind of less retro-layout also among the FujiRumors community. And maybe Fujifilm should consider this, while developing the Fujifilm X-H2.

Let me explain:

Maybe Fujifilm should offer a Fujifilm X-H2 with a PSAM dial and an additional unmarked dial (but keeping the top LCD). The Fujifilm X-H2 could become the one camera, that battles against the full frame Sony, Canon and Nikons out there, trying to appeal to customers, who don’t like the retro-controls.

The Fujifilm X-S10 seems to be possibly successful thanks to this move, and it could work out well also for the Fujifilm X-H2.

Moreover, a less retro-operating X-H2 with PSAM + unmarked dial could differentiate itself better from the X-T line.

And for the rest of us, the retro-lovers niche, there would still be the Fujifilm X-T5, Fujifilm X-Pro4 and what not. All cameras that will continue to give us that nice tactile retro feeling that is part of the fun of shooting with Fujifilm.

What to Expect from Fujifilm in Early 2021: Smaller GFX100, GF80mmF1.7, X-E4, XF27mmF2.8 and Surprises… but a Fujifilm X-H2?

I don’t know you, but to me it looks like Fujifilm setting up a big show for the beginning of 2021.

Thanks to rumors reported here on FujiRumors, we already know that in early 2021 we will get:

I am constantly at work, and I think the surprises won’t end here. But I am working on it, triple checking and making all things necessary to give you guys accurate information.

So, expect the list above to be updated in near future and definitely stay tuned on FujiRumors.

And let me clarify one thing.

Some FR-readers erroneously thought that FujiRumors predicted the Fujifilm X-H2 for early 2021. Well, I never did. All I did is to say back in 2019, was that there won’t be any X-H2 in 2020.

There will be an X-H2 at some point, but none of my contacts has told me so far it will happen in early 2021.

What we know from the big Fuji bosses themselves, is that Fujifilm is working on a breakthrough before releasing the Fujifilm X-H2. Stay tuned on FujiRumors, and as soon as I can I will let you know when we can expect such a breakthrough.

Fujifilm X-H2, X80, GFX100V, X-Pan, Monochrome and More – FR-Readers Wishlist Corner

Here is another roundup of wishlist shared by the FR-community to me via email at fujirumor@gmail.com.

Previous Wishlist Episodes:

As opposed to the last episode, this time we focus on camera wishes instead of lens wishes.

In this roundup, one particular and recurrent wish finds me totally agreeing with: the need for a Fujifilm X80!

I do hope Fujifilm will understand that the Fujifilm XF10 was not the X70 successor we were waiting for and that they will finally give us an X80.

I mean, Fujifilm should have been able to overcome these X80 issues by now!!!
