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.

DEAL of the YEAR: Save up to $750 with Fujifilm X-H1 Purchase

Fujifilm X-H1

Ok guys, I call this the “Deal of the Year”.

Thanks to up to $500 gift card on top of the official $250 Fujifilm deals on Fuji X-H1, you can now save up to $750 on Fujifilm X-H1.

No indication on how long this super-deal will last, so you better act fast.

And if you think this means the Fuji XH2 is just around the corner, then forget it. We already shared the rumor, that it won’t come in 2019. Read all Fuji X-H2 details on fujirumors.com.

VOTE: Fujifilm X-H2 with 3 way Tilt Screen, Swivel Screen or X-T100 Flippy Screen?

Fujifilm X-H2

Here on FujiRumors we recently told you that the Fujifilm X-H2 will not come in 2019.

We have looked back at Fujifilm camera replacement history from 2011 to 2018, and the collected data suggest that the Fujifilm X-H2 could be out in first half of 2020, but that’s not a rumor, only a speculation at this point.

With that said, the buzz around the Fujifilm X-H2 is big here in the comments of FujiRumors, and one of the strong debating points is if the Fuji X-H2 should have a flippy screen like the Fujifilm X-T100 or a 3 way tilt screen like the Fujifilm X-T3.

And since the Fuji X-H2 is still pretty far away, it might be a good idea to tell Fujifilm what which screen we prefer, and they might listen to us and deliver what FujiRumors readers desire most.

Now, both screen-philosophies have it’s strenghts and weaknesses:

Flippy screen of X-T100:

  • MAIN PRO: good for vloggers, since they can see themselves while filming. Tilted up and down, LCD is still centered to the camera
  • MAIN CON: tilts in the wrong direction and is not centered to the camera, when camera is used in portrait mode

3 Way Tilt screen of X-T3:

  • MAIN PRO: the 3 way tilt screen is more photography friendly when the camera is used portrait mode. Always centered to the camera
  • MAIN CON: You have to use an external monitor (or camera remote app), if you want to see yourself while recording a video or taking selfies

Swivel screen of GH5:

  • MAIN PRO: When camera is not in use, you can reverse the screen against the body for protection
  • MAIN CON: When tilted in any direction, the screen is never centered to the camera

So tell us, which one would you prefer on your Fujifilm X-H2? Feel free to vote the poll down below.

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.

DPReviewTV Crop Sensor Comparison: Fujifilm X-T3 Beats Nikon D500, Olympus EM-1 MK II and Panasonic G9

Chris and Jordan just released roundup/buyers guide for non-full frame shooters.

They look at the Fujifilm X-T3, Nikon D500, Olympus EM-1 MK II and Panasonic G9 and try to figure out which camera is better for landscapes, street, sports/wildlife, portrait photography and video.

SPOILER ALERT: The Fujifilm X-T3 ends on top in all categories but one :).

Chris starts by saying that:

  • APS-C and M43 offer a lot of versatility and can handle all kinds of photography
  • Full frame cameras are more specialized tools in a lot of ways

LANSCAPES

  1. Fujifilm X-T3 wins, due to highly effective APS-C sensor and great dynamic range. Excellent lenses. By a hair the winner
  2. Olympus EM-1 MKII and Panasonic G9 are on par. Have multishot pixel shift
  3. Nikon D500 not made for landscape, lower resolution sensor and big body. Not so portable

STREET PHOTOGRAPHY

  1. Fujifilm X-T3. Sexiest looking body. Dial controls very instinctual. Crazy fast AF. Eye AF is great. APS-C image quality better than M43
  2. Panaosnic G9 very close to Olympus. Better viewfinder and faster single AF, better eye AF
  3. Olympus EM-1 MK II
  4. Nikon D500 is big and bulky. Slow live view AF

SPORT/WILDLIFE PHOTOGRAPHY

  1. Nikon D500 offers by far the most lens choices. Rugged and stable DSLR body. Best autofocus in the world
  2. Fujifilm X-T3 has some great lenses like the XF100-400 and new XF200mmF2. Insanely fast AF. Very capable sports and wildlife camera
  3. Panaosnic G9
  4. Olympu EM-1 MKII

PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY

  1. Fujifilm X-T3 is the clear winner. Great lenses. They care about APS-C lenses. Legendary color science with great skin tones. Great AF and vastly improved eye-AF
  2. Nikon D500
  3. Olympus EM-1 MK II
  4. Panaonic G9

VIDEO

  1. Fujifilm X-T3. Terrific video specs and Eterna profile is awesome. No IBIS and better battery life. But Fujifilm X-H2 will fix that. Fujifilm X-T3 is best hybrid video/still camera overall
  2. Panasonic G9
  3. Olympus EM-1 MK II
  4. Nikon D500

Overall, Fujifilm X-T3 is the way to go in the crop sensor world.
