You Voted: Fujifilm X-H2 beats X-T4 and X100V as Most Wanted 2020 Camera and Only 3% want Full Frame Fujifilm

Well, looking at the results of our most desired Fujifilm camera 2020 survey, the Fujifilm X-H2 comes out on top of the list.

In fact, many hoped to see an X-H2 already under our 2019 Christmas tree.

However, as FujiRumors always told you, the X-H2 was never planed to hit the market in 2019, and to my knowledge there won’t be one even in 2020.

So what, did Fujifilm kill the X-H line?

Absolutely not!

In fact, I say, repeat and underline again: Fujifilm has plans for a Fujifilm X-H2. Just give them a bit more time, ok?

I hope this helps to make you feel better.

In our survey, Fujifilm X-H2 is very closely followed by the Fujifilm X-T4 and the upcoming Fujifilm X100V.

On the forth position, we find the Fujifilm X-T3s, basically an X-T3 with IBIS.

Now, we will surely get the Fujifilm X100V in February and we won’t get the Fujifilm X-H2 in 2020. And what about the Fujifilm X-T3 successor?

Well, we already told you in our future cameras release timeline, that, if Fujifilm respects their past refresh rate, the successor to the Fujifilm X-T3 (which is still selling strong and top recommended by DPR) could be a possibility for 2020, but it remains to see if it really comes out, and which form and shape it would eventually take.

Also worth to notice: only 3% of FR-readers want a full frame Fujifilm.

What did FujiRumors vote?

Well, I gave a vote to the Fujifilm X-H2 and to the Fujifilm GFX-T, which is something like the Fujifilm X-G mock-up that Fuji officially displayed to the press. That camera, I am sure, would be a home run for the the GFX system.

Anyway, whatever comes, and whatever will be under our 2020 Christmas tree, just follow FujiRumors to find it out before anyone else ;).

DPRTV 2020 Camera Companies Resolutions: Fujifilm Should Merge X-T and X-H Line and Sony Steal Fujifilm Colors

2020 Camera Resolutions

DPReviewTV has published their 2020 resolutions for every camera company, of course including Fujifilm.

Regarding Fujifilm, they say:

When asked if Fujifilm should merge X-T and X-H line, most of you guys voted you prefer to keep both lines well separated, and I believe that would make sense, for the reasons I explained in this article.

What I believe would make sense, though, is to give us a Fujifilm X-T4 with IBIS and maybe a bigger battery. Do that, and you’ll make tons of Fujifilm shooters happy.

I am not sure about the Fujifilm X-A7 flippy screen, though, as this would make it tilt in the wrong direction, when shooting portraits. Maybe that’s more something for the Fujifilm X-H2.

Neopan 400 is a much loved film, as you can see from these customer reviews. So make it happen, Fuji!

As recently measured, Fujifilm has currenty the worse face/eye AF. But I would not worry about that too much. A major improvement is coming via firmware, soon.

You can see the full video above, where, among the others, the recommend Sony to steal Fujifilm colors ;).

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.

If you want to know more about CFexpress cards, check out this CFexpress overview at B&H Explora.

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!
