LAST SECOND RUMORS: Fujifilm X-S20 Coming with 3.5mm Headphone Jack and Capable for Recording 4:2:2 and 10 bit Internal Video

So, I thought I was done with Fujifilm X-S20 rumors, so much so that I even made a rumor recap video (from one of the most beautiful lakes in the Dolomites), but one of our trusted sources reached out to me now with yet another Fujifilm X-S20 rumor. And it’s my pleasure to bring it to you :).

According to our source (thanks so much), the Fujifilm X-S20 will record 4:2:2 and 10 bit internal video and have a 3.5mm headphone jack port.

Even if you are not interested in the Fujifilm X-S20, you have to admit that there is lots of power incorporated in that small body.

On paper the Fujifilm X-S20 looks very good. And if you are not a retro aficionado like me, it’s probably the best camera you can pick in this price range.

Facts, Rumors and Hopes for the Fujifilm X Summit on May 24

I went up high with family and friends to grab some fresh Alpin air and charge my batteries ahead of the Fujifilm X Summit on May 24.

And as you can see in the video, the view was just as epic as the upcoming Fujifilm event ;).

But despite the good company on the beautiful lake on a Sunday afternoon, the Fujifilm X Summit on May 24 at 5AM New York time is coming closer, so a wrap up urgently needed.

That’s why I “abandoned” friends and family for a while to talk to you and give you a recap of everything we will get for sure on May 24, but also talk about what could come based on official Fujifilm teasers as well as throw in also some of my hopes.

You will get it all in written format below, but if you want to see one of the most beautiful lakes in the Dolomites, then check out the video too (and see this image and this image on my Instagram).

FACT (actually rumors, but thanks to our sources rumors are basically facts ;))


Back in January, after launching the huge firmware 3.00 update for the Fujifilm X-H2S, Fujifilm promised major firmware updates also for the Fujifilm X-H2 and X-T5. I don’t have any rumors about it, but as an X-T5 owner myself, I can’t wait for that firmware to drop so I cross fingers it will happen on May 24.

WISHES (some based on RUMORS)

  • More Firmware: Since we just talked about firmware, I hope (not rumor, just hope) that also other cameras will get firmware updates that go beyond the “fix of minor bugs”.
  • new film simulation: usually with the introduction of new sensor and processors, Fujifilm also launched new film simulations. But this did not happen with the X-H2s, X-H2 and X-T5. Again, I have no rumors, but I hope Fujifilm will give us one on the X-S20
  • richer lens roadmaps: if you take a look at the latest X mount roadmap and GF mount roadmap, they are very poor on future lenses. And in fact, after the XF8mmF3.5 announcement, the X Roadmap will contain no more lenses. So I hope Fujifilm will release new roadmaps for both systems.
  • Mock-ups: what Fujifilm likes to do is to show mock-ups of upcoming lenses (and in some cases also lenses that were never on any roadmap). So I hope they will show us the some mock-ups of future lenses
  • Development or Surprise Announcement: Sometimes Fujifilm also makes development announcements during X summits (for example X-Pro3). Now, FR readers know Fujifilm is working on the Fujifilm GFX100 replacement. So I hope that that one will be announced on May 24 or at least there will be a development announcement

So that’s it. Let me know what your wishes are for the upcoming X Summit.

See you all here on FujiRumors on May 24 where I will live stream the event and cover everything.

The Power of VLOG: Fujifilm X-S20 Coming with Product Priority and Background Defocus Mode

After I shared the rumor about the Fujifilm X-S20 having a dedicated VLOG icon printed on the PSAM dial, trusted sources reached out to me and informed me about some brand new “vlogging” modes that Fujifilm will introduce with the Fujifilm X-S20.

More precisely, they told me that it will have:

  • Product Priority Mode
  • Background Defocus Mode

I have not been given any further details than that, but to me it sounds like the “product priority mode” could be something like the feature we find on the Sony ZV cameras.

And if it really is something like we find it on the Sony ZV cameras, then this is how it would work.

Usually when making talking head videos, Vloggers have their camera set on face detection. This means that when they want to show a product, they have to hide their face behind the product in order to disable face detection and let the camera focus on the product itself.

Well, with this feature, at least on Sony ZV cameras, the camera recognises when a product enters the frame and focuses on it, without the need for the Vlogger to hide his face behind it.
