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.

“Soon the Fujifilm GFX System will Make Full Frame Difficult to Choose” – Fujifilm GFX100 Review

Fujifilm has a clear strategy: do not join the overcrowded mirrorless full frame war, dominate APS-C and MF, and then attack full frame from both sides.

If that will work, only time will tell.

But GxAce seems to be one of those, who thinks this strategy could actually work out well for Fujifilm.

Back in October he published this captivating and controversial video called “Bye bye full frame“, as he believed the X-T3 was one good reason not to go full frame. If you want to see and read his arguing, check out this article.

Now he also reviewed the Fujifilm GFX100, and he says that:

in a few years, when the features and reliability and performance of the GFX100 trickle down to cheaper cost models, it really will make full frame difficult to choose over the alternative

Looking at the fact, that already now 70% of GFX users come from Full Frame, as a Fujifilm manager officially said here, he might not be too far off with his prediciton.

You can see the full review above and read a summary below.

  • it surprised him how similar it was to a Fujifilm X-T3, in the way it performs and handles
  • 10,000 seem much, but it’s priced around a top tier DSLR
  • it’s by far the easiest and most reliable medium format to use
  • images are just ridiculous
  • it’s actually a light camera
  • futuristic and modern looking design, he likes that
  • he’d like that “cyper-punk” design also for the X-T line
  • very good battery life
  • AF is not as good for video as it is for stills. He shoots manual focus in video anyway
  • he used an anamorphic adapter
  • the GFX100 opens up doors to get similar aesthetic look to an Alexa 65 or an Imax camera, for a fraction of the cost
  • he’d live Indie filmmakers to make videos on GFX100 instead of a Red or Blackmagic. You get a look that isn’t possible with those cameras, unless you go up an spend $100,000 for an Arri Alexa
  • this camera is a paradigm shift in photography
  • first MF camera that functions and works just as easily and as conveniently as your tipical mirrorless camera
  • a huge step in terms of bringing medium format to the everyday person
  • in a few years, when the features and reliability and performance of this camera trickles down to cheaper cost models, it really will make full frame difficult to choose over the alternative
