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!!!

New Fujifilm Financial Results: COVID-19 Can’t Stop X-T4 and X100V, Instax Rises Again but Pandemic Still a Serious Issue

The latest Fujifilm financial results for the 2nd quarter 2021 (1 July 2020 to 30 September 2020) have been released.

Of course COVID-19 had a terrific impact, but there are some signs of recovery and hope.

First of all, after a couple of rather negative reports in the past, Instax seems to be growing strong again, which is, as we know, the real money machine of the imaging division.

But also sales of the Fujifilm X-T4 and X100V were “brisk” and there is a recovery trend in the when it comes to digital camera sales.

And yet, overall the numbers are still negative due to COVID-19, but Fujifilm writes:

Operating income was down, but if COVID-19 impacts are excluded, the segment secured income of a similar level to last year

Overall Fujifilm writes:

In the Imaging Solutions segment, consolidated revenue amounted to ¥113.9 billion (down 26.1% from the same period of the previous fiscal year). Sales of products and services in general decreased due to the impacts of stay-at-home orders, temporary closure of retailers, and a variety of events not being held, or being cancelled, in many cities worldwide due to the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Consolidated operating loss amounted to ¥2.1 billion.

[…]

In the electronic imaging field of the optical device and electronic imaging business, temporary closure of retailers and fewer opportunities to take photos due to the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in a decline in revenue. The digital camera market as a whole faced severe challenges and overall demand declined far below the previous year’s level. Nonetheless, sales increased steadily for FUJIFILM X100V, a high-end, compact digital camera launched in February 2020, and FUJIFILM X-T4, a mirrorless digital camera highly regarded for its high-speed AF and advanced video performance, launched in April 2020. In July 2020 we launched the FUJINON Lens GF30mmF3.5 R WR as a new interchangeable lens for the GFXSeries, providing a compact wide-angle prime lens that delivers ultra-high resolution. Then, in September 2020, we launched a new addition to our lineup of interchangeable lenses for the X Series in the form of the FUJINON Lens XF50mmF1.0 R WR, a large-diameter mid-telephoto prime lens, thereby enhancing the appeal of our products as systems through a generous lineup of lenses. Going forward, we will continue providing value-added products and revitalizing the market, along with sharing the joy of taking photos.

In the optical device field, revenue decreased, reflecting reduced sales of broadcast and cinema lenses due to cancellation of sports events, and suspended filming of television dramas and movies, as well as reduced sales of vehicle-mounted lenses due to lower demand in the automotive industry worldwide. Demand for lenses for security purposes held firm, and revenue for the second quarter was higher than the same period of the previous fiscal year. Aiming to achieve business growth in this field, we are expanding our business domains and developing innovative products that satisfy the diverse needs of the market, including developing and launching ultra-short-throw projectors and long-throw security cameras, and developing new multispectral camera systems.

Happy Birthday: Fujifilm X Series Turns 10 Years Old and WIN a Limited Edition 10th Anniversary X100V

10 years ago, at Phtokina in September 2010, Fujifilm announced the development of the first Fujifilm X series camera, the original Fujifilm X100.

That day marked the start of the Fujifilm X series.

In order to properly celebrate this day, Fujifilm launched a giveaway that gives you the opportunity to win a limited edition Fujifilm X100V.

How to enter the contest is described at the dedicated Fujifilm X100 10th anniversary page (click “Enter Now” and then click on the drop down menu to see the countries that participate).

You’ll also find a shot video, where Fujifilm managers Takashi Ueno and Fuji X photographers like Kevin Mullins talk about the original X100 and its successors.

Down below you can read what the manager says, plus he makes a strong commitment: “Fujifilm will continue to improve the X100 series over the next 10 years and beyond

  • 10 years passed quickly
  • Fujifilm made constant advancements in these 10 years
  • X100V is the fifth generation
  • he has special fondness to all X cameras. But the X100T always impressed him most
  • X100T saw for the first time a female designer working the X100 series
  • X100T was a bit more rounded and hence different than its two predecessors (X100 and X100S)
  • X100F saw battery compatibility with other non-X100 X series cameras, which is a big usability improvement
  • X100F battery was bigger than predecessor, more battery life, but size of body remained the same
  • manufacturing skills at Fujifilm have improved
  • X100V is weather resistant if you add a filter on it
  • X100V has an ultra-thin tilt screen
  • as a product, the manager thinks the X100V is the most perfect so far
  • the mangers would like those, who never used an X series camera, to start with an X100 series camera. It’s an all-in-one package that does not require you to drop your previous system and change lenses, accessories, etc.
  • you can enjoy the X series with one single all-in-one camera
  • Fujifilm will continue to improve the X100 series over the next 10 years and beyond
  • Please enjoy your photography life together with us and the X100 series

In terms of performance lots lof things have changed for the Fujifilm X series. But was hasn’t changed at all, is that it is and remains Fujifilm’s best looking digital camera of all times, not only according to myself, but according to the majority of FR-readers, as you can see in this survey, where the X100 line clearly wins the X series beauty contest.

With all that said, make sure to check out the dedicated Fujifilm X100 10th anniversary page.

New Fujifilm Financial Results: X-T4/X100V Sales Increasing Despite Severe Market Challenges, but Imaging Solution Down 33%

Fujifilm has just published the financial results for the first quarter of this fiscal year (1 April 2020 to 30 June 2020).

Here is what Fujifilm writes in its report about the imaging solution:

Imaging Solutions

In the Imaging Solutions segment, consolidated revenue amounted to ¥49.8 billion (down 33.2% from the same period of the previous fiscal year). The sales of products and services in general decreased due to impacts of stay-at-home orders, business shutdowns including temporary closure of retailers, and self-restraintor cancellation of events worldwide under the spread of COVID-19 pandemic. Consolidated operating loss amounted to ¥3.0 billion. […]

In the electronic imaging field of the optical device and electronic imaging business, temporary closure of retailers and less opportunities to take photos due to the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in a decline in revenue. The sales of FUJIFILM X100V, a high-end model of compact digital camera launched in February 2020 and FUJIFILM X-T4, a mirrorless digital camera highly known for its high-speed AF and high video performance, launched in April 2020, are steadily increasing, despite the digital camera industry is facing severe challenges. We will continue providing value-added products and revitalizing the market, along with sharing the joy of taking photos.

In the optical device field, revenue decreased, reflecting a decline in demand for broadcast and cinema lenses, as well as reduced sales in vehicle-mounted lenses due to stagnation in automotive industry. With an aim to accelerate business growth, we are expanding business fields by developing and launching innovative products that satisfy changing needs of the market, such as ultra-short throw projectors and long throw security cameras.
