LEAKED: Fujifilm X-E3 First Real Life Images !!!

Many watermarks, right? They have become necessary, since, if I post just one small (or even big) watermark, the usual few other sites will either edit it out or copy those parts of the leaked image that have no watermark and share them like puzzle pieces on their blogs. So I’m forced to put watermarks everywhere now. :(

All these watermarks might be annoying for some of you guys, sorry for that, but I hope you can understand my position.

At the end, the important thing is that you can see the images, and you can see them 100% here… watermarked or not ;)

*** Fujifilm X-E3 Leaked Images ***

Here we go… these are real life pics of the Fujifilm X-E3 (thanks for sharing :) ). Here is what we can notice:

  • it looks definitely smaller
  • some design changes
  • Combined Shutter/ISO dial
  • front command dial

And some specs previously rumored

Of course, it will have the 24MP X-TransIII sensor and the fast X-processor Pro.

Ok guys… I’m now leaving to participate to the 60 years birthday party of my mother with all the relatives. And guess what? As to expect, I’ve been asked to be the official “X-photographer” of the day… I somehow have the feeling this happens often also to you, am I right? ;)

My X-T1 is ready… just need one lens, still undecided if 35/1.4 or 23/1.4, but I think the 35/1.4 might be better for this occasion (I feel more comfortable shooting portraits with it).

But I’ll have my computer with me… so if there will be anything new, I’ll find the time to update you.

Fujifilm X-E3 Poll Results


Guest Post by FXF member Jano

Dear fellow Fuji shooters,

thanks a lot for your participation in the poll that I created! Thank you also for all the encouraging comments I got. Thank you Patrick for publishing it on FujiRumors and thereby allowing the poll to reach 2,000 people who took the time to participate. I’m sorry that it took so long to publish the results. The idiotic way that Google Forms formats the data cost me a lot of time and my sons were sick a lot lately so I got way less time to work on it than I had hoped. And when I was almost done my computer broke and it took me even more time to get it back up and running. Great…

To begin let me address some criticism I received.

Fujifilm X-E3 Will be Smaller than X-E2 (Trusted Source). What Other Design Changes Can We Expect?

Fujifilm X-E3 Design

A trusted source told me, that the Fujifilm X-E3 will have some “design changes”.

One of the changes of the Fujifilm X-E3 compared to its predecessors should be it’s size: it will be smaller.

I remind you that currently all 3 cameras in the X-E line-up, the Fujifilm X-E1, the X-E2 and the X-E2s, share the very same design.

Note that “smaller” does not necessarily mean “much smaller”. It could be a minor size difference, like the one between the X-T1 and X-T2… but maybe also a more significant one.

I will try to give you guys a more accurate indication soon.

In the meantime, keep up participating to Jano’s very well done X-E3 poll.

What else could change?

Maybe the combined shutter/ISO dial. A redesigned grip? A larger viewfinder? No more pop-up flash?

And another big question: tilt screen or not? I have to admit I am hearing something in this regard. But I also know that it’s a tiny bit too early to be 100% sure there won’t be last second changes with this. But I promise that once I’m 95%+ sure it will or will not have a tilt screen, I will share it here on FujiRumors.

The Fujifilm X-E3 will come this year, maybe this fall.

Do You Want to Discover the Big Secret? ;)

My birthday is approaching (April 17), and here are 4 reasons why you should join the FR charity auction.

  1. IT’S MAKES YOU COOLER :): You will get a high qualty X-T1 grip, leather strap and hot shoe cover, with the unique “FujiRumors” branding made by JBcameradesigns. Only you, and I, will have this special personalized items, and your X-T1 will look much cooler with it :). Total value of the items is of $110.
  2. IT’S GOOD FOR THE KIDS: The entire money you will pay for the items, will go to charity, to our FujiRumors friends KNGO in Cambodia, an NGO that gives access to free education to kids. We already collected $3,500 in the past for them with the fair trade X-shirts. You can read the story of the auction and of KNGO quickly here.
  3. IT MAKES ME HAPPY: Volunteering is something I practice since 2005, and I did everything, from cleaning toilets, to teaching, to distributing food to kids living (and working) in a gigantic waste disposal site. And if this auction goes well (and it is already doing great, we are at $155), I will be even more happy than I was before :)
  4. YOU WILL DISCOVER THE BIG SECRET: I will personally send you the item and ship it from my little village in the mountains. If you win the auction, you will get a package with my mailing adress on it and my full name. But I trust you will keep the secret and won’t pass it to Fujifilm.

Yep, the items are worth “only” $110, but sometimes we can take out that credit card and pay a bit more for a good cause. Again, thanks to those, who already bid :)

Fujifilm Manager: GFX & X-T2 Demand Higher than Expected :: Fujinon 200/2.8 or 200/2 :: Fujifilm X-E3 :: X-T2 Kaizen & More

These are busy days for journalists at the CP+ in Japan, and the next interview with Fujifilm Managers just hit the web, this time again with Mr Makoto Oishi. Some excerpts:

  • We’ve sold more X-T2’s than we ever expected.”
  • X-T2 shipping problems due to Kumamoto earthquake. But “from this year we’re in a better position and we have enough stock.”
  • The request to control ISO on X-T2 via FN button/command dial instead of dedicated dial is something that Fujifilm “should consider” to add “maybe a firmware upgrade
  • GFX more demand than we expected
  • “When we announce our new telephoto prime we also need a higher performance body”.
  • “We’re still thinking about the focal length and the aperture. There’s a big difference between a 200mm f/2.8 and a 200mm f/2 – they’re totally different.” – NOTE: a rumor of last year, February 2016, said 200mmF2.
  • X70 was successful last year and Fujifilm wants to keep small fixed lens compact cameras in their lineup – NOTE: X80 Rumor
  • X-E3: “With the strong demand for X-E series cameras we have to think seriously about the future lineup.” NOTE: Check out this X-E3 rumor
