New Fujifilm Camera with CFexpress Cards Coming mid-late December, Says ProGrade Digital

Fujifilm CFexpress High End Camera

Now that’s interesting! :)

Prograde Digital, manufacturer of the brand-new and ultra-fast CFexpress Cards, has hinted a new Fujifilm camera featuring CFexpress card within 2019. Here is what they say (screenshot below):

Final ship date for CFexpress memory cards remains dependent on camera dn device manufacturers release of CFexpress compatible firmware. Prograde Digital is working closely with device manufacturers to coordinate CFexpress memory card launch with the release camera firmware upgrade.

Current estimated from Nikon, Canon and Fujifilm indicates mid/late December 2019 timeframe for CFexpress compatible cameras.

Now, we know that the Nikon Z series and Panasonic S1 series will be made CFexpress compatible via firmware update. So I guess that’s what Prograde Digital refers to in the first part.

However, what belongs Fujifilm, there is currently no CFexpress compatible X/GFX series camera, so no firmware will help here.

So this would mean that a new camera should come, and evidently it would be a high end camera, as it would sport the super fast CFexpress cards.

The brand new CFexpress cards are based on the same design of XQD cards, but they are over 3 times faster and are said to become the standard in the future, especially for high resolution internal RAW video recording, which is something Fujifilm managers here said they are working on.

FujiRumors says…

As you know, Fujifilm has registered 3 cameras in the last few months. The first two were the Fujifilm X-A7 and the Fujifilm X-Pro3. The third camera, the FF190005, has been registered back in October, and has not yet leaked.

As we told you back in August, it can take up to 6 months for Fujifilm to release a camera after it has been registered.

However, I have not heard of any new camera coming in 2019, so my personal take is that, if something comes, then it will be sometimes next year.

Fujifilm X-T4 and X-H2 Leaked Details: Would it Be Madness to Merge both Lines? – VOTE POLL

Fujifilm Madness?

Would it be madness?

Take Fujifilm’s most successful camera line, the X-T1, X-T2 and X-T3, which remained intact in form and function for 6 years now, and annoy all Fujifilm X-T line lovers, by changing it.

Why do I say this?

Well, because if Fujifilm was to cancel the X-H line (as rumored by our forum member Jason here), this is what would happen, in an attempt to merge both lines into one.

Fujifilm would need an X-T4 with bigger grip (as the leaked specs would suggest), for better handling and operation with long lenses. So the sleek design of the current X-T line would have to make space to a more bulky grip.

And then there are the dials. Fujifilm X-T shooters love dials, so forget about the top LCD screen, but keep the exposure compensation dial.

The result?

A hybid camera, that would make both unhappy, X-T and X-H lovers.

Seen from this perspective, Fujifilm needs both camera lines, as this gives them design freedom.

  • X-T line – don’t change what is so successful
  • X-H line – more design freedom

This is why Fujifilm managers officially said that the Fujifilm X-H line will continue to evolve. It just needs time, as FujiRumors reported here.

Fujifilm Wisdom?

Or maybe Fujifilm would demonstrate wisdom by canceling one line, as they will never really be able to make them coexist?

Having two lines on the higher end just creates confusion.

Better bet on one horse, and send it out to battle against Sony, Canon and Nikon.

What should Fujifilm do with X-T and X-H line?

Fujifilm X-T4 Rumors Surfaced – REPORT

Fujifilm X-T4 – SPECS

Over at our wonderful Fujifilm X-T facebook group, Jason claims to have talked to a reliable contact at Fujifilm, and it told him here regarding the Fujifilm X-T4.

  • X-T4 with IBIS
  • expect a T4 about 1/3 of an inch thicker, and about 5-6oz heavier
  • On a good note expect 6k60 and 10bit internal
  • anamorphic ratio
  • fully articulating flippy…essentially an S1H but APSc with Fuji color and obviously much smaller
  • release end of 2020

I don’t know if this is correct. Surely IBIS sounds plausile, as Fujifilm managers repeatedly said, that they work on making the IBIS unit smaller, so that they can fit it into other (not X-H) X series cameras

Where I disagree, though, is Jason’s report that the Fujifilm X-H2 will never come. To my knowledge, the X-H2 will come!

Fujifilm X-T2 Marked as Discontinued – Farewell to Fujifilm’s Best Seller!

Fujifilm X-T2

The Fujifilm X-T2 is now marked as discontinued at BHphoto here and also at Adorama.

You can still find it in other stores, for example the silver version is still available at Focuscamera, but the inevitable is happening: as the X-T2 is no longer in production, the stock is now clearing out.

So we have to say goodby, to one of Fujifilm’s most legendary and important digital cameras, the Fujifilm X-T2.

Some of you might remember, how the New York Times reported here that Fujifilm sold only 700,000 cameras in the first 2 years of its existence.

X100, X-Pro1, X-E1, X10 and other cameras could never really go mainstream.

However, things changed starting from January 2014, with the Fujifilm X-T1. It was a big hit, and the Fujifilm X-T2 even topped its sales, becoming Fuji’s most successful X series camera ever.

The X-T line is what keeps the X series alive, and currently the Fujifilm X-T3 is going even better than any of its predecessors.

So, ode to the glorious Fujifilm X-T2. May the success of this line continue for many more years to come.
