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.

Fujifilm X-T30 To be Released First Quarter 2019

Fujifilm X-T30

A trusted source told me (thanks), that the Fujifilm X-T30 will be released in the first quarter of 2019 (January-March).

This pretty much fits with what we expected in our Fujifilm X camera replacement timeline, where we speculated, based on Fuji’s camera refresh-cycle, when the Fujifilm X-H2, Fujifilm X-T4, Fujifilm X-T30, Fujifilm X-Pro3, Fujifilm X-E4 and Fujifilm X200 (or X100V) could be released.

BREAKING: No Fujifilm X-H2 Release in 2019

Fujifilm X-H2

According to a trusted source, the Fujifilm X-H2 will not hit the market in 2019.

This rumor seem to confirm our Fujifilm X Camera replacement timeline, which shows you when we can expect the Fujifilm X-H2, Fujifilm X-T4, Fujifilm X-E4, Fujifilm X-Pro3, Fujifilm X-T30, Fujifilm X200 (or Fujifilm X100V) based on Fuji’s camera refresh rate from 2011 to 2018.

So, the Fuji X-H2 is still a long way off, hence, if you want to get the latest and greatest in the most powerful package possible now, the Fujifilm X-T3 is the way to go. And if you want IBIS, ultra rugged body and ninja mechanical shutter, go for the Fujifilm X-H1.

And given that you guys now have a first reliable Fuji XH2 time frame, I decided to launch the poll again, where you can vote if you prefer to wait for the X-H2, or you go X-T3 instead.

Awesome Fujifilm X-T3 vs X-T2 Comparison by Mirrorlessons. No Purple Flare and Wait for Fujifilm X-H2 “Sometime Next Year”?

Fujifilm X-T3 vs Fujifilm X-T2

Mathieu and Heather from Mirrorlessons have just published the complete Fujifilm X-T2 vs X-T3 comparison, and it’s arguably one of the very best you can right now find on the web.

Here are some key points:

BUILD QUALITY

  • X-T3 survived 90 minutes in the heavy rain photographing a soccer game
  • Refined sub-dials and command dials make them more comfortable to turn
  • More customization possibilities on X-T3 command dials

TOUCH SCREEN

  • X-T3 touch screen a bit slow and lacking responsiveness

POST PROCESSING

  • Capture One and Iridient render X-T3 files still better than Lightroom
  • Lightroom – unlike Capture One – adds lots of magenta shift by default to the X-T3 file to display the colours correctly (+65 which is very unusual). Perhaps it is a bug that will be fixed with the next update

IMAGE QUALITY and FILM SIMULATIONS

  • RAW Shadow recovery: both cameras perform well but the X-T3 file has less noise. The X-T2 exhibits some red colour cast
  • RAW Highlights recovery: X-T2 surprisingly retains a little more information
  • JPEG: The two cameras behave in a similar way including how they preserve highlights. The only small difference is that the X-T3 shows more noise in the dark areas but also more sharpness. This means there is less noise reduction applied than on the X-T2
  • Both cameras perform the same up to 12800 ISO, with perhaps slightly more noise in the X-T3 files but you really need to pixel-peep to see it
  • JPEG: more pronounced colour shift on the X-T2 the more you add noise reduction
  • SKIN TONES: With a manual kelvin temperature, both cameras shift towards a green tint but it is more contained on the X-T3.
  • White balance: the X-T3 produces a marginally cooler result for outdoor shots
  • Subtle changes in some film simulations

PURPLE FLARE and GRID ARTIFACTS

  • X-T3 doesn’t suffer at all from purple flare and grid artifacts

AUTOFOCUS

  • X-T3 autofocus breaths new life into older lenses
  • X-T3 much improved face and eye detection that rarely fail even in low-light environments
  • Car rally: the X-T3 only delivered 3 completely out of focus shots out of more than 200
  • Soccer: X-T3 has about the hit rate of the X-T2
  • Birds photography: keeper rate of 60/70%, or 85/90% if he includes slightly soft results. But when the bird flew closer, the AF was usually reactive enough to keep the subject in focus. Normally in this specific situation, the change in focus distance is too big and the action happens too fast for most mirrorless cameras to cope, but the X-T3 did better than most and proved to be capable of matching products such as the Sony A9 or Nikon D500

SPORTS MODE BUG

  • When using the camera in crop mode (Sports Finder or electronic shutter), some RAW files are not written correctly and end up with a vertical black band, making the photo unusable. The percentage is low (around 10 shots on more than 200). Maybe something Fuji can fix with a firmware update because it doesn’t happen when using the full sensor area

VIDEO

  • X-T3 less rolling shutter
  • X-T3 uses face and eye detection in 4K, the X-T2 only in 1080p
  • X-T3 superior video specs

FUJIFILM X-H2

  • The elephant in the room is called Fujifilm X-H2, which mirrorlessons thinks could be out “sometime next year” and they say it could be worth to wait a bit longer to get the superior ergonomics and IBIS of the Fuji X-H2.

Do make sure to head over at mirrorlesscomparison here and read the whole in-depth comparison. It’s definitely worth your time.

And if you are interested, we have launched a few polls regarding the Fuji XH2 as well as a timeline on when we can expect the Fujifilm X-H2, Fujifilm X-T4, Fujifilm X-T30, Fujifilm X-Pro3, Fujifilm X200 and Fujifilm X-E4.

  • POLL 1: Are you waiting for X-H2 to upgrade/switch or did you get the Fujifilm X-T3 already?
  • POLL 2: If the Fujifilm X-T3 had IBIS, would you prefer it over the Fujifilm X-H2?
  • TIMELINE: Fujifilm X Camera replacement timeline from 2011 to 2018 and what this could mean for X-H2, X-T4, X-T30, X-Pro3, X-E4, X200

Fujifilm X Camera Replacement Timeline from 2011 to 2018 and What This Could Mean for X-H2, X-T4, X-T30, X-Pro3, X-E4, X200

Fujifilm Timeline

Today I decided to take a look at the refresh rate of the top/mid range Fujifilm cameras and tried to make a guess (NOT A RUMOR) about when the Fujifilm X-H2, Fujifilm X-Pro3, Fujifilm X-E4, Fujifilm X-T4, Fujifilm X-T30 and Fujifilm X200 (or X100V) can be expected.

Overall we can see how the Fujifilm X-E and X-Pro line are gravitating towards a 4 years refresh time, whereas X-T and X100 line are close to a 2 years refresh time.

WARNING

  • This is not based on rumors, and it’s not said that Fujifilm will always keep the same product refresh rate. Everything can change anytime.
  • Don’t miss the upcoming rumors and join us on Facebook, RSS-feed, Instagram, Youtube and Twitter

NOT INCLUDED:

  1. All 2/3 sensor cameras are not included, since the won’t ever get any successor (not even 1 inch sensor cameras, no matter what old patents say)
  2. X70/XF10: XF10 is not the X70 successor. It’s unclear if there will be a Fujifilm X80 at some point
  3. X-A line has a high refresh rate, but the FR community is for the most part not interested in this camera line
  4. GFX 50S, GFX 100S, GFX 50R: According to our rumors, the GFX 100 comes 2 years and 3 months after the GFX 50S. It’s unclear if the Fuji GFX 50R will also get a 2 year refresh rate or a 4 year refresh rate like its rangefinder brothers the X-Pro and X-E
