Fujifilm X-H2 Mockup – Ideas to Set it Apart from Fujifilm X-T4

Fujifilm X-H2

Fujifilm hinted it already: both lines, the X-H and X-T, will continue to exist in future.

There is just one thing Fujifilm needs to figure out: how to differentiate them enough!

An idea comes from FR-reader Brad, who made a Fujifilm X-H2 mockup for us. Here is what he wrote to me:

  • Video centric X-A7 16:9 fully articulating screen (I’m ok with the current double-tilt too, but 16:9 would be nice).
  • If Fuji wants each of their camera lines to have a unique voice, then the X-H2 would have less photography controls and more video. So I removed the mode dial and added the Nikon Z6 video switch. This wouldn’t work as cleanly as on the Z6, since manual controls exist up top. It’s not like they’re going to add tiny motors to the dials, but this is for dreaming.
  • Replaced AF/AE-L with AF-ON, because that’s the only one I use.
  • I hate the Fuji joystick, so I used the Z6’s

So what do you think about it? Comments and additional ideas are welcome.

Thanks Brad, and check him out at bradwooten.com and b.e.wooten Instagram (NSFW).

Panasonic Announces First Organic Sensor 8K Camera for Summer 2020 – Coming to Fujifilm X and GFX too?

Organic Sensor

Panasonic has recently announced the launch of the first 8K organic sensor camera for the 2020 Olmypic Games in Tokyo.

By putting an organic layer on top of the CMOS sensor, Panasonic promises three advantages:

  1. Wide dynamic range
    Additional 2 stops of dynamic range, from the current 14 stops to a target of 15/16 stops
  2. Global shutter
  3. Build-in Variable ND filters
    The use of conductive film allows to control the light amount coming to the sensor. You can control lights without changing aperture. You can maintain depth of field

After the Tokyo Olmypic games, Panasonic will put this sensor also into cinema, studio and consumer cameras, including the Lumix line-up. Full interview in the video below.

And Fujifilm?

Important RUMOR Update: Fujifilm’s Next Rumored Camera Could be Just Anything and Here is Why!

The Next Fuji

Yesterday we reported, that, based on the registration protocols of the wireless parts the Fujifilm camera registered under the code name FF190003, Nokishita speculated that:

This didn’t leave much space for interpretation, since, taking away entry level cameras, the only Bayer sensor cameras in the Fujifilm world are GFX cameras.

But now I have been contacted by a Japanese reader, who told me google messed up the automatic translation, and the real translation is actually:

it appears that Fujifilm is going to introduce another model. From the model number of the wireless parts, it doesn’t seem like it will be a Xacti model, so probably it’s an X-Trans or GFX camera

This changes everything, since this means the FF190003 camera…

  • is not made by Xacti (hence no entry level Fujifilm camera)
  • could be X-Trans (!!!)
  • could be GFX

But there is more!

The reader pointed out, that probably Nokishita is speculating on the basis of the inclusion of bluetooth 4.2, which is not available in lower end Fujifilm cameras, whereas even lower end Fuji cameras use wireless IEEE802.11b/g/n.

This was correct, until the Fujifilm X-A7 hit the market, which also has bluetooth 4.2.

The conclusion:

The third registered camera could be just anything, from a flagship X or GFX series camera to an entry level X or GFX camera. It could be Bayer or X Trans. It could be made by Xacti or made by Fujifilm.

As soon as I can, I will lift this mistery ;). So make sure to follow us on Facebook, Instagram, RSS-feed, Youtube, Flipboard and Twitter

Fujifilm To Release Bayer Sensor Camera Soon

As we know, Fujifilm recently registered three cameras:

  • FF190001 = X-A7
  • FF190002 = X-Pro3
  • FF190003 = ?

So still to see what the FF19003 is, but Nokishita says:

In addition to X-Pro3, Fujifilm is likely to see another model. Probably not an X-Trans machine or GFX, as it is not made by Zakuti from the model number of the wireless parts.

It’s not X-Trans, it is not made by Xacti Zakuti, which I told you already back in 2017, is now developing Fujifilm entry level line of cameras (Fujifilm outsourced entry level cameras development to save R&D).

So remains the GFX.

DON’T MISS THIS DEAL

The Anker PowerCore+ 26800 PD is now selling for the lowest price ever at AmazonUS (regular price $129 – currently $67). It is officially recommended by Fujifilm to charge batteries in the camera. I own the Anker PowerCore+ 26800 PD myself, and I am very happy with it.
