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

Fujifilm X-H2: Are You Waiting for X-H2 to Upgrade/Switch or Did you Get the Fujifilm X-T3 Already? POLL

Fujifilm X-H2

After the announcement of the Fujifilm X-T3, I get countless emails, asking me when the Fujifilm X-H2, Fujifilm X-Pro3, Fujifilm X-T30, Fujifilm X-E4, Fujfiilm X100V or Fujifilm X200 with latest X-Trans sensor 4 and X Processor 4 will come.

I am working on this, and I will post updates on FR as soon as I can. So make sure not to miss them by following us on Facebook, RSS-feed, Instagram, Youtube and Twitter.

One of the guys, asking me about the Fujifilm X-H2 is FR Sacha, who wrote me:

What would you think of running a poll to get a feel for the interest with the Fujifilm X-H2?

More specifically to have an idea of how many users didn’t upgrade to the X-T3, and are actually waiting on the Fuji XH2. This is something I see come back a lot in the comments of the X-T3 reviews so I’d be curious to see what a poll would look like. It could even motivate Fujifilm to hasten the X-H2’s release date, after seeing the results of the poll :)

One note: I feel people waiting on the Fujifilm X-H2 are actually mostly non-fuji users who want to switch to Fuji but maybe are still on the fence and would like the “whole package” with IBIS to really switch. So maybe the results for Fuji users could be a bit less in “favor” of the X-H2.”

And since your participation, ideas and contributions are the heart and soul of this blog, I will be happy to take Sacha’s advice and make a poll out of it.

Check out the poll below… and read the options carefully ;)

Fujifilm X-Pro3 Concepts and Share Your X-Pro3 Wish List

Fujifilm X-Pro2 concept developed by Fujifilm and shared at senzo.co

Fujifilm X-Pro3

One of the top questions I got after the announcement of the Fujifilm X-T3, is when the Fujifilm X-Pro3 will come.

Well guys, in the Fuji world, rangefinder cameras like the Fujifilm X-Pro and X-E line, do not sell nearly as well as their SLR-like brothers, such as the X-T20 or the new X-T3.

Hence, Fujifilm is never in a hurry to release new iterations of those cameras. The Fujifilm X-Pro line for example even skipped the X-Trans II generation, and went from X-Trans I directly to X-Trans III.

And so far I have not heard anything reliable about the Fujifilm X-Pro3.

So all we can do for now, is imagine how we would like the Fujifilm X-Pro3 to be.

X-Pro3 Design

A FR-reader send me this Flickr link, where H.B. Kang imagines an X-Pro3 with vertical grip and new colors.

So I thought, why not, let’s talk Fujifilm X-Pro3 and start dreaming how it should be.

In addition to Kang’s X-Pro3, I will add down below some real Fujifilm X-Pro2 (and X-Pro1s) concept that Fujifilm studied during the X-Pro2 development. We have already shown them in this FujiRumors post, and you can find more images at senzo.co here.

I will start by launching a poll, where you can vote the top 3 features you’d like to see on the Fujifilm X-Pro3. Vote, and then let your imagination soar free in the comments.

NOTE: I mention the additional dials of the Olmypus PEN F in the poll. If you don’t know how it looks like check it out the images at BHphoto.

For the Fujifilm X-Pro3, I want... (max. 3 selections)
