GFX100 image in normal mode… imagine what will happen when you quadruple the resoultion ;)

Back in October 2018, I told you the Fujifilm GFX100 will have pixel shift multishot. However, in March 2019 here, I got an update from a source, that pixel shift multishot won’t be ready for launch.

Some readers were worried, that this could all just be plain wrong rumors, and so I asked trusted sources again, and in July 2019 they confirmed: pixel shift multishot will come for sure, “it’s just a matter of time“.

Finally, Fujifilm officially disclosed plans for Pixel Shift multishot on Fujifilm GFX100 at the latest Fujifilm X summit.

They also showed a sample image during the X Summit live streaming (go to minute 40:20), but those are taken with GFX100 in normal mode (and it’s already impressive).

I thought this deserves to be highlighted in a dedicated article, as this is certainly a significant improvement the Fujifilm GFX100 will get via firmware update.

Holy crop… 400 megapixel.

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.

EXCLUSIVE: No New Fujifilm GFX Camera Coming in 2020. We have to Wait until 2021 – Trusted Source

Fujifilm GFX

Hey folks!

I have a very important update for you.

I recently got dozen of emails of worried people, who were about to order a Fujifilm GFX 50S/R camera.

The reason?

Everybody thought, that the last mysterious registered camera, the FF190003, would be a GFX camera, and hence they would buy gear that would be about to be replaced.

But after FujiRumors unveiled them all (X-T4, X-T200 and X100V), they proceeded with their order.

With the name of all imminent cameras leaked, everybody came to the logical conclusion, that there are no GFX cameras that are close to releasing.

But I am here today to tell you it is actually worse than that!

Thanks to our trusted sources, I am now able to tell you, that there will NOT be ANY new Fujifilm GFX camera in 2020!

I believe that the Fujifilm GFX has a enormous potential and if developed at a proper pace, could be a fantastic alternative to all other camera systems out there.

By waiting so long with new GFX cameras, the risk is that Fujifilm could miss the boat and lose the momentum that is bringing so many full frame shooters into the GFX system.

But let’s try to see things positive:

  • if you purchase a GFX now, you can be sure you won’t be surprised by any successor in 2020
  • the long wait could mean that Fujifilm does not want to offer a minor MKII upgrade, but something more substantial
  • Fujifilm could free up resources to put into the development of Fujinon GFX lenses

Anyway, in 2020, the Fujifilm GFX camera lineup will still consist in:

So this will be the first year, where we do not get a new Fujifilm GFX camera.
