EXCLUSIVE: Fujifilm X-T4 Announcement on February 26

Fujifilm X-T4

One rumor you are waiting impatiently for, is the final announcement date for the Fujifilm X-T4, which will not be February 4, when the Fujifilm X100V will be announced.

But before I share it, a BIG thanks to the new source, for passing us the date. You help me to keep the global Fujifilm community on fire. Feel free to keep it up. :)

And now the date:

The Fujifilm X-T4 will be announced on February 26!

I know there is the Fujifilm X summit on Februrary 4, but the Fujifilm X-T4 announcement with full specs, details and pre-orders should not happen there.

The good news:

I did check my school calender, and the announcement falls right in the middle of my week of holiday, hence I will have the time to work full power and non stop for you here on FujiRumors.

So mark this date, tell your fiends, share the news, and let’s have an epic Fujifilm X-T4 live blogging party on February 26, here on FujiRumors.

Photons to Photos Dynamic Range Data: Fujifilm X-Pro3 Beats Fujifilm X-T3 and X-T30 – NOT :)

Photons to Photos added the Fujifilm X-Pro3 to their database, and you can now compare it to all other cameras in their database.

I did compare it to the Fujifilm X-T3 and Fujifilm X-T30, and the Fujifilm X-Pro3, despite having the same processor and sensor, shows a sensible advantage over the X-T3 and X-T30.

So has it better dynamic range?

Bill Claff explains:

The X-Pro3 appears to have improved PDR but it is an illusion.

It’s well known that Fuji implements the ISO setting in an unusual way.
In this case they have given ISO 320 to ISO 12800 an addition 1 stop boost.

Fuji uses a proprietary Exif tag called “Raw Exposure Bias” to indicate how much they have shifted the raw data from “standard”.

Adjusted in Excel for Raw Exposure Bias we see that the X-Pro3 and X-T3 are essentially identical. (They shift to dual conversion gain at a slightly different point).

You can access and manipulate the data here at Photons to Photos. Bill Claff’s comment has been added on dpreview.

Inside the Fujifilm Factory with Lok: Assemblling the Fujifilm GFX100 and the Discontinued Fujifilm X-H1

Lok brings you inside the Fujifilm factory in Sendai, Japan.

The first thing he shows, is part of the assembly of the Fujifilm GFX100. Lok is surprised to see that so much of the assembly is done by hand.

You also see how meticulously every smallest dust particle is removed from the sensor and the lenses.

Lok then tries to apply the rubber texture to a Fujifilm X-H1, but what looks easy in skilled hands, turns out to much more difficult to do if you are not trained for it.

And if you wonder, why a Fujifilm X-H1, well, I believe the tour dates back to May/June 2019, when we already shared a couple of similar Fujifilm Sendai factory tour videos.

At that time, Fujifilm only stopped selling Fujifilm X-H1 body only, but they where still producing it, since it had a big revival pushed by the Fujifilm X-H1 + vertical grip combo deals.

Here on FujiRumors, the Fujifilm X-H1 even beat the Fujifilm X-T3 in terms of overall 2019 sales, thanks to this deal.

The production of Fujifilm X-H1 probably only ended in the second half of 2019.

You can see the full factory tour video below.
