Fujikina 2019 Tokyo, May 25/26: Fujifilm GFX 100 Launch Party and More?

Fujikina 2019

Fujifilm announced the Fujikina 2019 event in Tokyo on May 25/26.

In the Fujifilm world, “Fujikina” means “big launch event“, and in this case it will be the official launch party for the Fujifilm GFX100, which will be announced on May 23.

What else could come?

Besides the release of the silver Fujinon XF16mmf2.8, I have not heard any more details about the event.

The Fujifilm X-Pro3 is sure for 2019, but no source has so far told me, that it will come in May (but never say never).

If you are waiting for the Fujinon XF 16-80mm f4 and GF50mm f/3.5, Fujifilm said they will be released in fall.

Whatever comes, you only have to do one thing: follow FujiRumors to know everything as fast as possible ;).

The Mirrorless Endgame Begins: Fujifilm GFX 100 Announcement on May 23

Fujifilm GFX 100

According to our trusted sources, the Fujifilm GFX100 will be announced on May 23.

I am so excited to finally see this beast unveiled, that I created a fan-made Fujifilm GFX100 announcement trailer on my youtube channel.

Don’t take the trailer too seriously, though. Of course the Fujifilm GFX100 won’t destroy half of the camera universe. It’s just I am super-pumped to see Avengers Endgame, too, and I guess my brain just merged my excitements into the trailer you see above.

And yet, the mirrorless endgame really begins. Camera companies try to find a way to survive in a declining market, but it’s clear that there is no space for all to flourish.

Fujifilm tries to survive by avoiding the full frame mud fight and by dropping medium format beasts and agile hybrid APS-C cameras to the market.

If that will work out or not, only time will tell.

All I know is that I will be here, on May 23, to give you the most epic live blogging ever seen on FujiRumors.

Stick around guys, because this is just the beginning of a long rumor marathon ;).

Fujifilm X-H2, X-T4 and X-Pro3 with Samsung Pixel Merge Technology for Variable Megapixel Sensor

Fujifilm & Samsung

Back in 2018 Samsung and Fujifilm officially announced the development of a new CMOS image sensor technology for enhanced light sensitivity and color fidelity, called ISOCELL+ sensor (full report here).

This sensor structure also allows for the revolutionary “pixel merge technology“, already used in the Samsung Galaxy A7

This is how it works on the Samsung Galaxy A7: the 24 megapixel sensor can, for better low light image quality, combine 4 pixels into 1 pixel and end up with 6 MP files (via samsung.com).

The hot rumor today is:

Samsung will provide Fujifilm with APS-C and Medium Format pixel merge technology sensors.

The rumor is of a 36 megapixel APS-C sensor, that could be switched to 9, 18 or 27 megapixel according to your needs. You will also be able to switch between Bayer and X-Trans layout. Last but not least, the pixels will also be able to flip by 180° into black & white mode.

The source told me, this technology will be ready for the Fujifilm X-H2, Fujifilm X-T4 and Fujifilm X-Pro3, followed by a 150 megapixel medium format Fujfilm GFX 150.

This “universal all-in-one” sensor is Fujifilm’s answer to customers’ often impossible desires: one sensor, to satisfy them all!

But Fujifilm’s mission to deliver what we really desire and need does not stop here!

According to our source, the next step is the use of Vibranium from Wakanda for lens development, which should allow for a fully optically corrected XF 8-600mm f/0.85 pancake lens for less than $500.

It looks like our constant complaints finally pushed Fujifilm to re-invent the laws of physics.

This digital photography revolution starts today, with this rumor, on this special, very special day, that I will mark in my calendar… and you should do the same :).

stay tuned on FujiRuomors… not only April 1 ;)
