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 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.
As soon as I can, I will lift this mistery ;). So make sure to follow us on Facebook, Instagram, RSS-feed, Youtube, Flipboard and Twitter
