Fujikina 2019 Tokyo, May 25/26: Fujifilm GFX 100 Launch Party and More?

Fujikina 2019

Fujifilm announced the Fujikina 2019 event in Tokyo on May 25/26.

In the Fujifilm world, “Fujikina” means “big launch event“, and in this case it will be the official launch party for the Fujifilm GFX100, which will be announced on May 23.

What else could come?

Besides the release of the silver Fujinon XF16mmf2.8, I have not heard any more details about the event.

The Fujifilm X-Pro3 is sure for 2019, but no source has so far told me, that it will come in May (but never say never).

If you are waiting for the Fujinon XF 16-80mm f4 and GF50mm f/3.5, Fujifilm said they will be released in fall.

Whatever comes, you only have to do one thing: follow FujiRumors to know everything as fast as possible ;).

GFX · X fan meeting “FUJIKINA” is again.

Fujifilm X-H2, X-T4 and X-Pro3 with Samsung Pixel Merge Technology for Variable Megapixel Sensor

Fujifilm & Samsung

Back in 2018 Samsung and Fujifilm officially announced the development of a new CMOS image sensor technology for enhanced light sensitivity and color fidelity, called ISOCELL+ sensor (full report here).

This sensor structure also allows for the revolutionary “pixel merge technology“, already used in the Samsung Galaxy A7

This is how it works on the Samsung Galaxy A7: the 24 megapixel sensor can, for better low light image quality, combine 4 pixels into 1 pixel and end up with 6 MP files (via samsung.com).

The hot rumor today is:

Samsung will provide Fujifilm with APS-C and Medium Format pixel merge technology sensors.

The rumor is of a 36 megapixel APS-C sensor, that could be switched to 9, 18 or 27 megapixel according to your needs. You will also be able to switch between Bayer and X-Trans layout. Last but not least, the pixels will also be able to flip by 180° into black & white mode.

The source told me, this technology will be ready for the Fujifilm X-H2, Fujifilm X-T4 and Fujifilm X-Pro3, followed by a 150 megapixel medium format Fujfilm GFX 150.

This “universal all-in-one” sensor is Fujifilm’s answer to customers’ often impossible desires: one sensor, to satisfy them all!

But Fujifilm’s mission to deliver what we really desire and need does not stop here!

According to our source, the next step is the use of Vibranium from Wakanda for lens development, which should allow for a fully optically corrected XF 8-600mm f/0.85 pancake lens for less than $500.

It looks like our constant complaints finally pushed Fujifilm to re-invent the laws of physics.

This digital photography revolution starts today, with this rumor, on this special, very special day, that I will mark in my calendar… and you should do the same :).

stay tuned on FujiRuomors… not only April 1 ;)

Fujifilm X-Pro3 will Be Made In Japan – Anonymous Source

Fujifilm X-Pro3

Here on FujiRumors we value your trust.

This is why we meticlously filter anonymous rumors, and you guys will read only those, that I feel confident to share (the tons of fakes I get every year will never go online).

But, even though today I feel confident to share, I invite you to take every anonymous rumor with a grain of salt.

An anonymous source (who used a nick-name, thanks!) contacted me via rumor box and told me the next Fujifilm X-Pro3 will still be made in Japan.

Fujifilm moved the Fujifilm X-T3 production to China in order to be able to sell it sensibly cheaper to customers. This is why, at launch, the brand new Fujifilm X-T3 cost less than the Fuji X-T2.

By keeping the X-Pro3 production in Japan, we can expect the X-Pro3 to match the current Fujifilm X-Pro2 price or be even higher.

We remind you that the Fujifilm X-Pro3 will come in 2019.

That’s it… for now, but I have lots (!!!) of rumors I am working on. Follow FujiRumors on Facebook, RSS-feed, Twitter, Youtube and Instagram to read them all soon.

Also, if anyone out there is willing to help me out in the thick rumor jungle, feel free to contact me also anonymously via rumor box.

MESSAGE TO THIS ANONYMOUS SOURCE: Thank you very much!!! I have read also the other rumors you shared, and since they are pretty long-term, I will give it a quick double-check with sources and share them hopefully very soon. Thanks again for the help, and feel free to contact me again whenever you want using the nickname.

Fujifilm X-Pro3 Coming in 2019 – Trusted Source

Fujifilm X-Pro3

According to our trusted sources, the Fujifilm X-Pro3 will come in 2019.

I have no specs for now, but it is safe to assume (personal guess), that it will feature the same sensor and processor of the Fujifilm X-T3.

  • fujirumors –  Fujifilm X-Pro3 Concepts and Share Your X-Pro3 Wish List (includes survey)
  • fujirumors – What to Expect from Fujifilm X-Pro3 (includes another survey)

When exaclty will the Fuji X-Pro3 come?

Well, we have already analyzed the complete Fujifilm X cameras refreshment rate, and if Fujifilm would keep the usual product cycle, the X-Pro3 should be out in January 2020.

Today’s rumor, though, suggest that Fujifilm anticipates the release of the X-Pro2 successor. My personal guess (NOT RUMOR) is that this will happen towards the end of 2019, hence being very close to the January 2020 date.

But to be clear, I have no time indication, which could mean the Fujifilm X-Pro3 could be annouced anytime in 2019. I will let you you know more details as soon as I can.

Fujifilm FF180005 Registered: Fujifilm GFX100 or Surprise Camera?

Fujifilm FF180005

Fujifilm just registered a camera with the code name “FF180005” here, as spotted by nokishita.

Fujifilm has already announced they will release the Fujifilm GFX100 in the first half of 2019, so we can assume that’s the camera that hides behind the mysterious code name.

FujiRumors has exclusively leaked the entire Fujifilm GFX100 media slides, with lot of details in it. This can’t be found anywhere on the web, since it is confidential Fujifilm material.

However, the “FF180005” could be also another not yet rumored Fujifilm camera.

Want to find it out? Well, then just follow FujiRumors on Facebook, Instagram, RSS-feed and Twitter.
