Fujifilm X-Pro4 Fantasies – Your Dreams Here!

When I shared my video (and partially rant) about the Fujifilm X-E4 being discontinued and what that could mean for the Fujifilm X-E line going forward, I quickly mentioned in that video that I believe one line Fujifilm will never drop is the Fujifilm X-Pro line.


Because the X-Pro line is a very prestigious line for Fujifilm. It was Fujifilm’s first mirrorless interchangeable lens camera and as such it is symbolically very important for Fujifilm.

Sure, Fujifilm won’t refresh it as often as they do with other lines, but it will continue (in my opinion).

But I said something else in the video.

I said that the Fujifilm X-Pro line will become a more “experimental” line for Fujifilm, and we can see that happening already now with the hidden LCD of the Fujifilm X-Pro3.

And you know what? I am good with it.

The Fujifilm X-Pro is a niche camera and I find it OK if the they try niche stuff with it.

So assuming Fujifilm will continue to experiment around with that line, what would you like to get with the Fujifilm X-Pro4?

An X-Pan X-Pro? Or maybe a monochrome X-Pro? Or why not get rid of the LCD entirely? Or keep the LCD, but put a stacked sensor in it and get rid of the mechanical shutter instead? Any other ideas?

Feel free to drop your wish in the comments. I might collect them in future and make a survey out it.

CURIOSITY: Fujifilm Switzerland Shows X-Pro3 without Hidden but Regular Tilt LCD Screen – UPDATE

UPDATE: Error is now fixed

Here is a weekend curiosity:

Fujifilm Switzerland is currently showing a Fujifilm X-Pro3 with a normal tilt LCD screen rather than with the hidden LCD.

I have no idea why they decided to photoshop the mini-LCD away and replace it with a regular one.

Some will speculate that Fujifilm is now preparing for a Fujifilm X-Pro3 MKII with normal tilt LCD. Well, I have no information about such a camera coming. Nor have I information about the Fujifilm X-Pro4.

Let’s see how long it takes for Fujifilm Switzerland to fix it. Or maybe they are preparing for April 1? ;)

Fujifilm X-Pro Line Discontinued? Let’s Clarify it in View of a Possible Fujifilm X-Pro4

I recently reported that the Fujifilm X-Pro3 was discontinued at several stores and also Fujifilm distributors in some countries said the same. You can read more here.

This news kind of took a life of its own, as now people go around saying that FujiRumors said the X-Pro line had been discontinued.

So let me clarify.

The news was only about the X-Pro3 being discontinued, not the entire X-Pro line.

So, FujiRumors never said the X-Pro4 will never come.

On the contrary. Personally I believe there will be an X-Pro4. Not because of rumors and whispers, but because Fujifilm itself has mentioned it as one of the camera lines that will continue (also in this case).

The X-Pro line, so says Fujifilm, will be the refined luxury line of Fujifilm. I don’t know what they exactly mean by that, but certainly it sounds expensive. And probably they will continue to make brave design choices that will give it a very exclusive feel. But it’s pure guesswork of mine.

Anyway, that’s why I think there will be one day a Fujifilm X-Pro4.

Rumors and Discussions

Fujifilm X-Pro3 Discontinued but Not Because Fujifilm X-Pro4 is Coming – REPORT

Some reports are appearing that indicate how the the Fujifilm X-Pro3 has been discontinued.

The first one comes from India, where a fellow X shooter looking for an X-Pro3 spoke to a Fujifilm distributor, who was informed by the regional Fujifilm sales person that the Fujifilm X-Pro3 is discontinued [see screenshot above].

Another report comes from a Swiss Fujifilm shooter, who got told the same by a Swiss distributor (X-Pro3 no longer in production), with the addition that no Fujifilm X-Pro4 is in the pipeline.

Speculations are rising, and so far here are the options I see.

  1. Fujifilm X-Pro4 is coming
  2. Fujifilm X-Pro3 simply is not selling well enough anymore and the parts shortage that is still going on forced Fujifilm to stop production on lower selling models
  3. The class action lawsuit the X-Pro3 is suffering is forcing Fujifilm to stop production

What’s your most likely scenario?

If you ask me, I’d go for Nr.2. But the option that would make me most happy is the Nr.1 of course :)

DPRTV and Ted Forbes 2023 Predictions: Fujifilm X-Pro4 and Dedicated Video Camera

DPRTV teamed up with Ted Forbes to predict the future of the Fujifilm system for 2023.

They predict two cameras:

  • Fujifilm X-Pro4 with 40MP
  • dedicated video camera

I won’t make any comment on anything at the moment, because as you can imagine, I am looking deep into 2023 already, and when the time has come and all the checks are done, I will drop 100% accurate rumors for you.

So for now take their predictions as what they are: fun speculations and wishes.

The FujiRumors community has a clear idea on what they want for 2023.

For the X series the most wished camera is indeed the Fujifilm X-Pro4 followed by the Fujifilm X100VI (or X100Vs or X200 or however Fujifilm is going to call the Fujifilm X100V successor).

For the GFX series, the top wish could be summed up with one word: speed!
