Time for FujiRumors to dedicate to this wonderful camera a roundup, which will include a story of a guy selling all his full frame gear for photographic purity (Fujifilm X100V), a few reviews of X100V firmware 2.00, a comparison with the X-Pro3 and more.
We reported back in September that Fujifilm Europe launched a giveaway to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the X series, and more specifically of the Fujifilm X100 series.
Now the giveaway is coming to and end. You have 2 weeks left to join the giveaway and win it.

The Fujifilm X100F was a huge success.
But it looks like you won’t find it for sale for much longer.
In fact, as listed at Adorama here, the Fujifilm X100F is now marked in “Closeout”, indicating that once the stock is cleared, they won’t get any more samples.
All this means just one thing: the Fujifilm X100F is discontinued!
That’s of course inevitable, since the X100F got a wonderful successor with the Fujifilm X100V.
I already said it in my X-S10, Attack on Sony article: the Fujifilm X-S10 makes a whole lot of sense.
And yet, I do understand one of the critiques made to Fujifilm: their line-up is huge and potentially confusing.
There are indeed some lines, that in some occasions do not not differentiated themselves enough from each other.
But this is an issue Fujifilm realized and I feel that they are taking care of it, for example:
- the Fujifilm X-Pro3 is a unique machine, with a concept, so far nowhere to find
- Fujifilm is aware that the the Fujifilm X-H2 must differentiate stronger from the X-T* line in order to continue to evolve separately
Fujifilm understands the problem and is finding ways to separate the lines better.
And yet… there are some lines that should be dropped, in my opinion.
Let’s take a look it at, by using an official Fujifilm media sheet that has been sent to me, which shows a pyramid with all Fujifilm X series cameras listed and ordered by Fujifilm itself.
The Red Zone
Ok, this is a mandatory update to our previous post World Press Photo Award post here.
In our previous article, based on the statistics made by thephoblographer, we reported how most of this years’s award winners used Fujifilm and Nikon cameras. ThePhoBlographer writes:
The big winners are Fujifilm and Nikon in terms of camera manufacturers.
I was thrilled about it, and reported about it here. And I trusted the great guys over at thephoblographer, who keep delivering great content for the photography community. Honestly I didn’t check it by myself, as today its my birthday, and I have a day planed with my wife at home, cooking and (a bit) drinking ;).
But it turns out, as our fellow FR-readers noticed, the real statistics are a bit different than the one shared at the thephoblographer.
Fujifilm and Nikon are still strongly represented.
In fact, the most prestigious award for the best “General News” image was taken by Yasuyoshi Chiba with his Fujifilm X-H1.
