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 ;)

NIKON Shooter About FUJIFILM: “Fujifilm’s Passion is Evident or They Could Never have Produced Something Like the X100F”

Fujifilm X100F

Did you invest in DSLR’s or any other non-Fujifilm system?

Well, then let your fingers from the Fujifilm X100F, since the perfidious Fuji Guys conceived this camera as the “gateaway drug” into the X world.

In fact, I often hear of Nikon or Canon shooters, who just got and X100F as a secondary camera for everyday shooting. But once they felt the pleasure, inspiration and quality of shooting with Fujifilm, they started to buy an X-Pro2, or an X-T2, a few lenses, and ended up ditching their DSLR system completely.

Today we report about another hardcore Nikon shooter, who made the error to get an X100F as a secondary camera: very popular youtube photographer The SnapChick.

She says about the X100F:

  • She tried the Nikon DF, which never fully embrace its inner “analogueness”
  • X100F hits the sweet spot between old school feel and modern features
  • X100F solidly build and  super clean, classic design
  • it’s all about the basics
  • intuitive menu. Coming from other brands, she felt like she already knew how to use 90% of the functions without needing the menu or manual
  • Sony mirrorless felt like a computer for her, but Fujifilm is doing it right
  • she liked to use film simulations a lot
  • this was the first time in a long time, that she was excited to look at photos later on
  • she thought that the X100F would make an occasional guest appearance in her camera bag, but after a couple of months with “this gem” and the Fujifilm X100F was almost always in her bag, and often no other camera
  • high quality images that rival anything else out there
  • Fujifilm’s passion is evident, or they could never have produced something like this, where the features and the functions are so well geared to help you do that one thing really well: capturing great images with the least distraction while giving you full creative control

I doubt she will end up ditching their Nikon system, since most of her followers on youtube are Nikon shooters. But it’s nice that she captures in words so nicely what’s about to be a Fujifilm X shooter: enjoying the pictures just as much as the process to take them.

Fujifilm X100F HACK: How to Convert Old WCL-X100 and TCL-X100 into Version II with Magnets :)

When Fujifilm launched the Fujifilm X100F, they also annouced a new TCL-X100 ver.II and WCL-X100 ver.II.

This second version of the WCL and TCL are optically identical to the first generation. What changes, though, is that inside the WCL and TCL ver.2, there is a little magnet, placed in different positions. These magnets allow the Fujiiflm X100F to automatically recognize if the WCL or TCL is attached, since they are designed to match one of to two magnets placed inside the 23mm lens of the X100F.

That’s handy :)

Now, if you already own the first generation WCL or TCL, you might not have to purchase the second version WCL or TCL, to enjoy this feature.

In fact, FR-reader Haoyuan came up with a “hack”, that makes the old WCL/TCL recognizable by the X100F. You just need 2mm x 1mm magnets, an electrical tape (or a Blu-Tack Adhesive), Plastic Tweezers, Sharpies, and a permanent adhesive (optional). And how exactly does it work? Well, jump over at haoyuanren to find out more :)

I wish you guys a GREAT weekend :)

Another one Hacked it too, using the magnet that comes with the X100F box and a gaffertape. You can’t do it cheaper :)
