Fujifilm X-S10 New IBIS Small Enough for Fujifilm X-E4?

Recently FujiRumors broke the rumor about the Fujifilm X-E4 to come in early 2021.

The rumor triggered a stunning number of 230+ comments, and many of them are, as to expect, speculations and wishes about the features of the Fujifilm X-E4.

One of the hot topics was if the X-E4 has IBIS or not.

At this point in time I do not know the answer to this question.

All I could do is to try to imagine if the new smaller IBIS of the Fujifilm X-S10 would fit in the small body of the Fujifilm X-E3.

So I searched long on the internet, until I found a nice and clear technical Fujifilm official sketch of the Fujifilm X-S10 IBIS.

Based on that sketch, I was able to virutally mount the IBIS unit of the X-S10 with high accuracy on the Fujifilm X-E3.

The result is clear: it fits!

And not only it fits, but it seems that it would leave still enough room for the other components, as it would not take away precious space to the EVF, the battery compartment, etc.

Again, I have no idea if the Fujifilm X-E4 will have IBIS (and if anyone out there knows the answer to this question, feel free to let me know via fujirumor@gmail.com or via personal message on social media).

But it certainly looks like if Fujifilm wanted, they could squeeze IBIS into the Fujifilm X-E4, of course provided that the X-E4 keeps the body size of the X-E3 and doesn’t make the X-E4 much smaller than the current X-E3, which is another thing I have no idea of (if X-E4 will have same size of X-E3).

So, there is still a lot we have to find out about the Fujifilm X-E4, and if you are interested, then you should definitely follow FujiRumors.

With all that said… take care, share love, take pictures and see you soon in the next article.

Firmware Updates for Fujifilm X-T4, X-T3, X-T2, X-T1, X-H1, X-Pro3, X-Pro2, X-Pro1, X-E3, X-T20 and X-T30 Released

Fujifilm has released several firmware updates.

Down below you’ll find all the details officially shared by Fujifilm.

The main course of the meal is improved support for the Fujinon XF50mmF1.0 R WR. for “enhanced AF speed and enabling Color Shading Correction to mitigate subtle color casts when images are made at the lens’ maximum F1.0 aperture“.

I wish Fujifilm would specify, which bugs are fixed. For example, as FujiRumors found out for first, the recent X-T4 “minor bug fix” was actually a major one, as it fixed the exposure stepping issue.

Anyway, down below all the details.

MapCamera: Fujifilm X100V Top Seller, Great X-E3/X-H1/X-Pro3 Sales and APS-C Dominates Full Frame

Just yesterday here we reported how, according to BCN ranking, Fujifilm saw, in March, a huge 115% increase in sales in Japan, while all other camera manufacturers dropped up to 50%.

Now Japanese store MapCameras published their top selling camera rankings.

Keep in mind, though, that this is not representative for overall sales.

The most reliable data we probably have about the worldwide success of various camera brands, is this report from a Techno System Reports, a major marketing research company located in Japan that sells this data at a very high price, but somehow it went public at the Japanese site toyokeizai, and FujiRumors spotted it for you and shared it here.

The data of Techno System Reports reflects the mirrorless camera sales, and it shows that Fujifilm is on the third position, just a tiny margin behind Canon, and substantially behind Sony.

With that said, if big retailers share their sales data, it might not be representative for the overall market, but it can still give an approximate indication of what the market wants.

With that said, here are the top sellers at MapCameras for March 2020.

Fujifilm X-E3 with XF 23mm f/2 Combo Marked as Discontinued/Back-Ordered

When Fujifilm launched the Fujifilm X-E3, they made something terribly smart, that I strongly believe contributed to the success of the Fujifilm X-E3: they sold it bundled with the Fujinon XF23mm F2 for the attractive price of $949, basically making you save $250 over the regular price of $1,200.

And for months, this combo kept up selling decently.

But something strange is happening these days.

The Fujifilm X-E3 with XF 23mm F2 combo is starting to get listed as back-ordered or even discontinued all over the world.

BHphoto here and Adorama here listed the black X-E3 with 23/2 as back-ordered, whereas WexUK here is a tiny bit more explicit:

We no longer sell this product and will not be receiving any new stock. Check below for availability of second-hand units.

At the time of this post, you can still find a limited number of black X-E3 with 23/2 at AmazonUS.

So far, it seems only the black X-E3 with 23/2 is back-ordered. The X-E3 black body only as well as the silver X-E3 + 23/2 combo are still available at BHphoto, Adorama, AmazonUS and also WexUK. But I don’t know what will happen once also the silver combo one runs out of stock.

Maybe Fujifilm decided that it’s time to end the nice combo deal.

I will contact sources, and try to figure out what’s going on. Once I get reply, I’ll update this article.
