Fujifilm’s Classic Negative Film Simulation Coming via Firmware Update to X-T3, GFX100 and X-T30

Classic Negative

As FujiRumors already told you here, along with the Fujifilm X-Pro3 on October 23, Fujifilm will also launch the new Classic Negative film simulation.

Classic Negative has a lovely nostalgic and vintage touch to it (see images below).

The good news I hear from sources:

  • Fujifilm will upgrade X Processor 4 cameras (Fujifilm X-T3, X-T30 and GFX100) with Classic Negative film simulation

Sadly (if the rumor is correct), my lovely little X-E3 won’t get it.

DPRTV Fujinon GF 50mm F3.5 Review

Fujinon GF 50mm F3.5

The Fujinon GF 50mm f/3.5 is not only the newest, smallest, lightest and most affordable lens in the GF lens line-up, but it’s also the currently best selling G mount lens.

But what do you give up in exchange for the small size?

According to Chris from DPReview, not much. Here is what he says in his Fujinon GF 50mm F3.5 review:

  • smallest and lightest lens for the Fujifilm GFX system
  • manual focus ring is buttery smooth
  • linear motor AF. Tested on Fujifilm GFX100 the AF speed is very impressive. From near to far focus is quick
  • lens design is relatively complicated compared to other “pancake” lenses, and it’s amazing that Fujifilm was able to keep it that small
  • minimal breathing
  • very sharp
  • can easily handle the resolution of the GFX100
  • the GF50mm f/3.5 is a full frame equivalent of 40mm f/2.8
  • very good center sharpness even wide open
  • surprising the corners, which hold up very well too
  • optically a very sharp lens
  • very minor and very well controlled color fringing
  • you are going to like the bokeh, maybe a little bit of a darker edge, but very smooth interiors and very nice round shape even stopped down
  • the lens is a bit too wide for portraits. the GF63mm is a better choice, or the best overall is the GF110mm f/2
  • macro capability is not amazing, but you will use it on high resolution cameras, so you can crop the hell out of it
  • Chris still prefers the 63mm focal length, but if you want to save money, size and weight, the GF50mm is great

Looks like Fujifilm crafted yet another winner. Well done, Fuji!

Panasonic Announces First Organic Sensor 8K Camera for Summer 2020 – Coming to Fujifilm X and GFX too?

Organic Sensor

Panasonic has recently announced the launch of the first 8K organic sensor camera for the 2020 Olmypic Games in Tokyo.

By putting an organic layer on top of the CMOS sensor, Panasonic promises three advantages:

  1. Wide dynamic range
    Additional 2 stops of dynamic range, from the current 14 stops to a target of 15/16 stops
  2. Global shutter
  3. Build-in Variable ND filters
    The use of conductive film allows to control the light amount coming to the sensor. You can control lights without changing aperture. You can maintain depth of field

After the Tokyo Olmypic games, Panasonic will put this sensor also into cinema, studio and consumer cameras, including the Lumix line-up. Full interview in the video below.

And Fujifilm?

Important RUMOR Update: Fujifilm’s Next Rumored Camera Could be Just Anything and Here is Why!

The Next Fuji

Yesterday we reported, that, based on the registration protocols of the wireless parts the Fujifilm camera registered under the code name FF190003, Nokishita speculated that:

This didn’t leave much space for interpretation, since, taking away entry level cameras, the only Bayer sensor cameras in the Fujifilm world are GFX cameras.

But now I have been contacted by a Japanese reader, who told me google messed up the automatic translation, and the real translation is actually:

it appears that Fujifilm is going to introduce another model. From the model number of the wireless parts, it doesn’t seem like it will be a Xacti model, so probably it’s an X-Trans or GFX camera

This changes everything, since this means the FF190003 camera…

  • is not made by Xacti (hence no entry level Fujifilm camera)
  • could be X-Trans (!!!)
  • could be GFX

But there is more!

The reader pointed out, that probably Nokishita is speculating on the basis of the inclusion of bluetooth 4.2, which is not available in lower end Fujifilm cameras, whereas even lower end Fuji cameras use wireless IEEE802.11b/g/n.

This was correct, until the Fujifilm X-A7 hit the market, which also has bluetooth 4.2.

The conclusion:

The third registered camera could be just anything, from a flagship X or GFX series camera to an entry level X or GFX camera. It could be Bayer or X Trans. It could be made by Xacti or made by Fujifilm.
