Fujifilm Patent Shows Compact Camera with Dual Rear Command Dials for Digital Dials Control

I stumbled on a Fujifilm patent, that shows a compact camera with dual rear dials that operate synchronized to a top LCD panel.

This reminds us at the Fujifilm GFX100 fake dials, with the difference that this time we have 2 rear command dials that can be assigned to operate different camera functions, which then will be displayed in form of fake dials on the top LCD screen.

It looks like Fujifilm is continuing to develop a hybrid analog/digital solution, in an attempt to melt the best of both worlds into one user interface.

In this case, virtual dials could allow for a smaller camera design. Who knows, maybe something for a Fujifilm X80, if something like that will ever hit the market.

Updated Fujifilm 2019/2020 Camera and Lens Release Timeline

Fujifilm Timeline

It’s high time to update our older Fujifilm 2019/2020 camera and lens release timeline.

This is just an approximate timeline and expect to see updates to this list over the next few weeks and months.

For now, this is mainly just an update to the list we shared back in January.

All rumors are as always exclusive FujiRumors.com information. When I just make some guess, I will highlight that for you in the notes.

  • IMPORTANT NOTE: We are talking about release timeline, not announcement timeline.

How Many Lenses a Year?

  • as we told you here, at the current pace and current resources, Fujifilm can release about 2/3 GF and 2/3 XF lenses a year
  • the list below contains 1 XF and 1 GF lens
  • hence we can expect to see 1/2 more XF and 1/2 more GF lenses to join the list
  • Fujifilm has given up options to vote which lenses should come next

Fall 2019

Coming 2020

Expect 1 or 2 more X as well as GF lenses. My guess:

  • GF 21mm F4 Tilt Shift
  • XF 10mm F2

Probably NOT Coming 2019/2020

* our sources say it will not be released in 2019, and probably not even in 2020. But Fujifilm managers confirmed here, that the X-H line will continue

Top Possible Bonus Gear in 2020

* based on this old rumor rumor
** wishful thinking based on XF10 disappointment
*** no rumors. but please, FUJI, PLEASE!!!
**** no rumor, just a mere wild guess

Fujifilm X Camera Replacement Timeline from 2011 to 2018 and What This Could Mean for X-H2, X-T4, X-T30, X-Pro3, X-E4, X200

Fujifilm Timeline

Today I decided to take a look at the refresh rate of the top/mid range Fujifilm cameras and tried to make a guess (NOT A RUMOR) about when the Fujifilm X-H2, Fujifilm X-Pro3, Fujifilm X-E4, Fujifilm X-T4, Fujifilm X-T30 and Fujifilm X200 (or X100V) can be expected.

Overall we can see how the Fujifilm X-E and X-Pro line are gravitating towards a 4 years refresh time, whereas X-T and X100 line are close to a 2 years refresh time.

WARNING

  • This is not based on rumors, and it’s not said that Fujifilm will always keep the same product refresh rate. Everything can change anytime.
  • Don’t miss the upcoming rumors and join us on Facebook, RSS-feed, Instagram, Youtube and Twitter

NOT INCLUDED:

  1. All 2/3 sensor cameras are not included, since the won’t ever get any successor (not even 1 inch sensor cameras, no matter what old patents say)
  2. X70/XF10: XF10 is not the X70 successor. It’s unclear if there will be a Fujifilm X80 at some point
  3. X-A line has a high refresh rate, but the FR community is for the most part not interested in this camera line
  4. GFX 50S, GFX 100S, GFX 50R: According to our rumors, the GFX 100 comes 2 years and 3 months after the GFX 50S. It’s unclear if the Fuji GFX 50R will also get a 2 year refresh rate or a 4 year refresh rate like its rangefinder brothers the X-Pro and X-E

BREAKING RUMOR :: Fujifilm X80 Coming Second Half of 2017

Fujifilm X80

Time to retire (already) for the Fujifilm X70. I’m receiving several hints (thanks a lot for your help) that Fujifilm is already working on the Fujifilm X80 and plans to release it in the second half of this year (2017)!

The little Fujifilm X70 was Fujifilm’s first camera featuring a flippy selfie touch screen and was launched along with the X-Pro2 in January 2016. Sadly, the X70 was a failure for Fujifilm and is now already discontinued. The pre-orders were so low, that Fujifilm even lowered its price tag just 4 days after its announcement.

However, it seems that Fujifilm is convinced of the concept (super compact APS-C camera), and will give it a refresh quite soon with the Fujifilm X80.

So how will it look like? I’ll work on it… and if you can help me to find the right path, feel free to contact me via the anonymous rumor box (if you use a nick name, that would be great) or via email at fujirumor@gmail.com (use a fake email if you prefer).

You can contact me anytime also via private message on Facebook and Twitter.
