This Guy Sold All His Full Frame Gear for the Fujifilm X100V, Firmware 2.00 Tests and More – X100V Roundup

The Fujifilm X100V was one of Fuji’s biggest hits of the last few years. In fact, right now it is even backordered at BHphoto and Adorama and available in very limited number at Amazon.

Time for FujiRumors to dedicate to this wonderful camera a roundup, which will include a story of a guy selling all his full frame gear for photographic purity (Fujifilm X100V), a few reviews of X100V firmware 2.00, a comparison with the X-Pro3 and more.

FUJIFILM X100F now Discontinued and in Closeout

The Fujifilm X100F was a huge success.

It sold stronger than any of its predecessors leading to biblical long waiting times for pre-ordered cameras to be finally shipped (same destiny the XF50mmF1.0 faces today).

But it looks like you won’t find it for sale for much longer.

In fact, as listed at Adorama here, the Fujifilm X100F is now marked in “Closeout”, indicating that once the stock is cleared, they won’t get any more samples.

All this means just one thing: the Fujifilm X100F is discontinued!

That’s of course inevitable, since the X100F got a wonderful successor with the Fujifilm X100V.

Fujifilm Digital Camera Range: Making Sense of the Line-Up, What Should be Dropped, What Should Stay… and Where is the X-H Line?

Fujifilm shared this Pyramid explaining their Current Camera Line-up
Fujifilm shared this Pyramid explaining their Current Camera Line-up

I already said it in my X-S10, Attack on Sony article: the Fujifilm X-S10 makes a whole lot of sense.

And yet, I do understand one of the critiques made to Fujifilm: their line-up is huge and potentially confusing.

There are indeed some lines, that in some occasions do not not differentiated themselves enough from each other.

But this is an issue Fujifilm realized and I feel that they are taking care of it, for example:

  • the Fujifilm X-Pro3 is a unique machine, with a concept, so far nowhere to find
  • Fujifilm is aware that the the Fujifilm X-H2 must differentiate stronger from the X-T* line in order to continue to evolve separately

Fujifilm understands the problem and is finding ways to separate the lines better.

And yet… there are some lines that should be dropped, in my opinion.

Let’s take a look it at, by using an official Fujifilm media sheet that has been sent to me, which shows a pyramid with all Fujifilm X series cameras listed and ordered by Fujifilm itself.

Fujifilm Wins Four TIPA Awards with GFX100, X-Pro3, X100V and Instax Mini Link

Fantastic achievement for Fujifilm!

The TIPA Award is an extremely tough competition, where products are brutally tested by the best experts on the planet. Companies are eager to win the TIPA award, and sometimes they want to pay to get it, but the incorruptible and visionary team of TIPA experts, guided by the one and only goal to deliver the most unbiased and professional feedback to customers, does not bend to the will of multimillion dollar companies. They award only the most prestigious products ever!

Ok, now let’s get serious.

Lots of companies payed again lots of money to win a totally meaningless award. TIPA created as many categories as needed to make everybody happy (who paid). Hence you will find frankly ridiculous category differentiations, such as “best professional APS-C camera” (Fujifilm X-Pro3), “best expert APS-C camera” (Sony A6600) and “best advanced APS-C camera” (Nikon Z50). The whole point of these award commissions is to make money by selling award licenses, meaning the right for companies to use the award logo to promote their products.

All the truth, and how exactly these awards work, in this article.

What a pity… all that money Fujifilm could have spent in firmware updates!
