The Fujinon GF 110mm F2 WR LM will be announced on April 19. Just two days after my birthday :) .

Earlier this year, the estimated price of the 3 remaining GF lenses, including the Fujinon GF 110mm F2 WR LM, surfaced on the web. I reported about it already in the past here, but here is the rumored price again:

  • GF23mmF4 = $2599
  • GF45mmF2.8 = $1699
  • GF110mmF2 = $2799

Please take them with a grain of salt, not only because they could be wrong, but also because the price leaked a few months ago… enough time for Fujifilm to change the price tag.

My personal guess though, is that you should not be surprised if the GF110mm costs more than $2,800.

Along with the Fujinon GF 110mm F2 WR LM, Fujifilm should also announce the new Instax Square cameras, the already leaked Instax Square SQ and Instax Square SQ10.

The Instax Square SQ10 will be a hybrid digital/film camera. All details here.

Anyway, since we broke the news today that Godox is working on Fujifilm support, something is moving, and more details just appeard on the web, always via CheetahStand here:

Clarification: Fujifilm Instax Square SQ10 Hybrid digital/film (with USB-Charging) and Instax Square SQ Film Only

Fujifilm Instax Square SQ Film only

Fujifilm Instax Square SQ Film only

Whops… seems I mixed up something yesterday regarding the Instax Square rumors. Sorry, I’m going to correct it today :)

2 days ago I’ve reported about the first leaked image of the Fujifilm Instax Square SQ10. The image showed a LCD screen on the back and 6 buttons.

I’ve immediatly contacted sources, who confirmed our suspects: the Instax SQ10 is a digital/film hybrid instax camera. In fact, sources also told me that the Instax SQ10 will have a microSD card slot.

During the talk with a source, I also aksed if there will be other Instax Square versions. The source confirmed, and promised me an image for the day after of the Instax SQ… and so it did.

I’ve shared the image of the Instax SQ here on FujiRumors yesterday, and for some mysterious reason I told you it will be hybrid camera.

But actually the source never said this. It only send me the picture of another Instax Square version (the Instax SQ), without adding any comment. So, when yesterday I wrote you it will be hybrid, the source was so kind to contact me again today and tell me I’d better correct that. Only the Instax Square SQ10 will be hybrid. The Instax SQ instead will be film only.

And btw, the source added another detail: the Instax Square SQ10 will have USB-charging (in addition to the micre-SD card slot)

ok… now I think it’s time for me for a little break. I’m going to grab my dog, my camera, and go out a bit ;)

First LEAKED Image of the Fujifilm Instax SQ (not SQ10)

It’s Instax Time

In the last few days, I’ve shared here on FujiRumors the first images that surfaced on the web (on facebook) of the Instax Square SQ10. After the leak, I’ve investigated further, and informed you that the Instax Square cameras will have a microSD card slot and be a digital/film hybrid.

I also asked sources if there will be other Instax Square versions, and they confirmed. For example, there will be also the Instax SQ (in addition to the SQ10).

One source in particular promised me to grab a camera and share an image for all of us… and so it did today. This is of course exclusive for FR-readers, so you won’t find it anywhere else on the web. But you are free to spread the word on forums/websites etc… if you don’t mind the watermark ;)

The Instax Square SQ10 will be a hybrid digital/film camera, with microSD card slot. The SQ instead will have a useful selfie-mirror, that sits right under the “Fujirumors” logo.

Btw, in case you missed yesterday’s update: As pointed out by instax_square on their instagramit’s not the first time Fujifilm combined a digital camera with an Instax Camera. Fujifilm Finepix PR21(1999) vs Fujifilm Instax Square SQ10 2017)
