Sony APS-C Global Shutter 31 MP Sensor Leaked. Not for Fujifilm X-T3, which Will Have 26 Megapixel – UPDATED

SAR ADMIN updated the article with the following 2 notes:
UPDATE: A chinese source just sent me these specs sheets of a rumored new Sony CMOS sensor found on Weibo. I am not sure if they are real but it certainly looks like that.
UPDATED: I edited this post and removed the note about the possibility that this might be used by the future A6700. What we learned now is that this is an APS-C sensor with an aspect ratio of 4:3.

FR ADMIN NOTE: As pointed out by readers, it’s been developed for FA and ITS applications. This is (expensive) BtoB stuff. Not BtoC photographic equipment.

New Sensor

SonyAlphaRumors just received specs about what seems to be the future APS-C sensor made by Sony.

This is of interest for Fujifilm lovers, since Fujifilm buys its sensor from Sony.

However, as we reported here on FujiRumors, the Fujifilm X-T3 will have 26 Megapixel and still be X-Trans. So, if the rumor below is correct, I wouldn’t expect it to be featured on Fujifilm cameras before 2020/2021, maybe something for the Fujifilm X-H2 or Fujifilm X-T4.

Here is what SAR writes:

“A chinese source just sent me these specs sheets of a rumored new Sony CMOS sensor. I don’t know if this is a real deal or some fake specs. So please take it with a grain of salt. But if it’s true this is going to be an AMAZING sensor that might find it’s way into the new A6700!

Key info:

– APS-C size 4:3 aspect ratio
– 31.5 megapixel
– FSI (Front Side illuminated)
– global shutter

This would be the first Front Side illuminated Global Shutter APS-C sensor. Surely enough to make the A6700 super exciting! Here are the spec sheets:

Fujifilm Registeres One More Camera. Total of 3 Unreleased Cameras Registered. Fujifilm X-T3, GFX 50R and XF10?

Upcoming Fujfilm Cameras

Fujifilm just registered one more camera, the FF 180004, that has the same radio parts of the Fujifilm X-H1 and X-E3 (registration here – via nokishita)

So we now have three unreleased cameras registered, that should be announced by the end of this summer:

  • FF 180002: Camera similar in size to Fujifilm X70. Very likely the Fujifilm XF10. To be announced July 5.
  • FF 180003: Camera with bluetooth version 4.2. We reported here.
  • FF 180004: Camera with radio parts like Fujifilm X-H1 and X-E3.

The two registered cameras could be Fujifilm GFX 50R and Fujifilm X-T3.

Fujifilm X-T3: Better Battery Performance and Touch Screen. New Battery Charger BC-W126S registered

Fujifilm X-T3

Hey guys,

I have a few Fujifilm X-T3 for you today, that you might be very happy about.

According to our sources, the Fujifilm X-T3 will have “better battery performance” and touch screen.

But there is more :)

Fujifilm just registered a new battery charger, the BC-W126S (registration here – via nokishita).

Nokishita does not say for which camera it is, but in combination with today’s rumor about the improved battery performance on the X-T3, the BC-W126S could indeed be the better battery for the Fujifilm X-T3.

If our assumption is correct, then the fact that it is called still “W126S” could mean that the Fujifilm X-T3 will still be compatible with the NP-W126S batteries. However, it could also be a bigger battery. I will verify it now.

So the current rumored Fujifilm X-T3 specs are:

  • announcement around photokina (end of September) or shortly before
  • no IBIS
  • 26MP APS-C X-Trans sensor
  • stacked sensor (this one take with a grain of salt for now)
  • new X-Processor
  • better battery performance
  • touch screen

Fujifilm X-T3 Opinion Polls: Touch Screen? X-T100 Selfie Screen? Bigger Battery?

Fujifilm X-T3

Fujifilm just launched the Fujifilm X-T100, which has a new 3 way tilt screen.

After having seen how the new tilt screen works, a number of FR-readers asked me to launch again the “X-T3 tilt screen survey“… and since you guys are my only boss, I will do as you desire ;) .

So how does the new X-T100 Selfie-Tilt Screen work?

Fujifilm’s “selfie-solution” tilts up and down with the screen perfectly centered to the camera (just like on the X-T2 & Co). In addition to that, you can also tilt it forward for selfies and still tilt the LCD up and down.

For your convenicence, I have made a short collage of various videos on youtube, that show the tilt screen in action.

Some say this solutions combines the best of both worlds.

Having finally seen how it really works, I think it’s a far call by you guys to ask me to re-launch our Fujifilm X-T3 “selfie screen” poll.

And since we are in survey-mood, I decided to launch a few more additional survey, always regarding the X-T3, which you are free to participate and vote.

Quick IBIS note

FujiRumors has already rumored in January 2018 that the Fujifilm X-T3 will not have IBIS, but just for curiosity I launch the poll again (after the first X-T3 IBIS Dealbreaker Survey here), because I’d like to know if you would have liked to sacrifice the smaller size of X-T3 over the X-H1 in order to get IBIS.
