Fujifilm X-H2, X80, GFX100V, X-Pan, Monochrome and More – FR-Readers Wishlist Corner

Here is another roundup of wishlist shared by the FR-community to me via email at fujirumor@gmail.com.

Previous Wishlist Episodes:

As opposed to the last episode, this time we focus on camera wishes instead of lens wishes.

In this roundup, one particular and recurrent wish finds me totally agreeing with: the need for a Fujifilm X80!

I do hope Fujifilm will understand that the Fujifilm XF10 was not the X70 successor we were waiting for and that they will finally give us an X80.

I mean, Fujifilm should have been able to overcome these X80 issues by now!!!

New Fujifilm Camera FF200003 Registered: Fujifilm X-E4, New Fujifilm GFX or Surprise Camera X-T40 or X80?

Nokishita has just spotted the registration of a new Fujifilm camera.

Fujifilm’s unreleased digital camera “FF200003” has been registered with an overseas certification body. Equipped with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.2. (X-S10 is FF200001)

They do not share any other detail, but thanks to exclusive leaks here on FujiRumors, we know that for early 2021 we can expect for sure:

But of course there can be always surprises. A Fujifilm X80? Or a Fujifilm X-A8? Or maybe even the long awaited Fujifilm X-T40? Or is another camera that will surprise us? Maybe even the Fujifilm X-H2 (although I doubt that, as Fujifilm said they want to achieve a breakthrough with the X-H2)?

I will investigate, and see if there is another camera coming up in addition to the ones we already rumored.

In the meantime, feel free to speculate, dream and wish in the comments :)

Hungry for Fujifilm X-H2, Visions for X-T5, Hopes for X80, Modular Fujifilm GFX, Monochrome and More – FR Readers Wishlist Corner

Fujifilm Wishlist Corner

In response to the terrific response to our first FR-readers wishlist corner article and the massive feedback I have received via email by fellow Fuji X/GFX shooters, here is the second episode of this series.

This series is all about your wishes about future Fujifilm cameras, lenses, firmware features and whatever you desire to see in Fuji’s future.

As I did receive tons of emails last time, I will focus this FR-readers wishlist corner mainly on cameras… lenses and firmware will follow at a later point.

The Hunger for X-H2

It’s interesting to note that most of the wishes gravitate around the Fujifilm X-H2, proving that there is a huge “hunger” for a Fujifilm X-H1 successor.

The (now discontinued) Fujifilm X-H1 was initially a disaster in terms of sales. However, X-H1 sales revived later on thanks to terrific deals that gave it a sales-glory-moment.

The reason for the overall failure of the Fujifilm X-H1 was not its concept, but its timing: a few months later the Fujifilm X-T3 followed with new sensor and processor. I never understood this move by Fujifilm.

And yet, there is absolutely nothing wrong with the Fujifilm X-H1, which, I remind you, snapped the top winning image at the World Press Photo awards.

I am strongly convinced that with the Fujifilm X-H2, Fuji is sitting on a potentially big winner.

Many X shooters would like a Fujifilm X-H2 right now, but as FujiRumors always told you, you have to be patient. Fujifilm is not going to repeat the errors made in the past. When the Fujifilm X-H2 will hit the market, it will be the right moment, have the right features and give the X-H line the position it deserves: right on the top of the high end X series line-up!

What’s Next?

Do you have wishes about the Fujifilm future, too? Well, then write me at fujirumor@gmail.com.

Have a wonderful weekend,
Patrick

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.

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.
