Panasonic S1R vs Fujifilm GFX50R and Panasonic S1 vs Fujifilm X-T3 – Let the Unfair Comparisons Begin

Panasonic vs Fujifilm

Some will call it unfair comparisons, but here on FujiRumors we think every comparison is unfair, unless you compare exactly the same two cameras with the same firmware.

And since everything is unfair, everything goes.

So let’s compare the upcoming Panasonic S1R and S1 (live coverage on L-Rumors) to the Fujifilm X-T3 and Fujifilm GFX 50R.

So, with the help of apotelyt, let’s start!

Fujifilm X-T3 Firmware 2.10 Coming February 7 and Fujifilm X-H1 Firmware 2.01 Released

Fujifilm just released Fujifilm X-H1 firmware update ver. 2.01.

  • Fujifilm X-H1 firmware 2.01 – download here
    The phenomenon is fixed that in rare cases, recorded images can be overexposed

Fujifilm also finally told us that they will release Fujifilm X-T3 firmware ver.2.10 on February 7, which will remove the 4GB record size limit.

  • Regarding the new function “Recording over 4GB movie file as one file” which was planned to add to the firmware Ver.2.00, we plan to release the upgraded firmware Ver.2.10 on 7 Feb 2019.

As I told you yesterday, Fujifilm is rumored to have a bigger firmware update ready for the Fujifilm X-T3 in spring.

Major Fujifilm X-T3 Firmware Update Coming in Spring 2019

Fujifilm X-T3 Firmware Update

Back on November 13, Fujifilm promised to release a major firmware update for Fujifilm X-T3 in December, which would, amongst the others, remove the 4GB file record limit.

Fujifilm did indeed release Fujifilm X-T3 firmware ver. 2.0 on December 17, but it did not include the removal of the 4GB recording limit.

All Fujifilm told us was:

Regarding the new function “Recording over 4GB movie file as one file” which was planned to add to the firmware Ver.2.00, we will announce the schedule to release the firmware with the function in January 2019

I started to get many requests on my Facebook and Twitter page, so, while waiting for Fujifilm to disclose more details, I reached out to some of my sources.

The initial feedback I got, is that currently Fujifilm plans a major Fujifilm X-T3 firmware update in spring 2019.

It should go well beyond the removal of the 4GB recording limit, hence there is hope we will be able to call it a big Kaizen firmware update. [UPDATE: the 4GB record limit will be removed with X-T3 fimrware 2.10 on February 7. The spring firmware should bring other improvements]

I’ll keep you posted as soon as I get more details, so make sure to follow us on Facebook, Instagram, RSS-feed and Twitter

X-T3 Rumors, News and Community

Fuji Guy Billy: Fujinon XF 33mm f/1.0 Development Challenge, XF 16-80mm f/4 very silent AF, X-H1 Market Misunderstanding and More

Fuji Guy Billy Interview

Fuji Guy Billy joined the Fujilove podcast. For those of you, who are right now on the road or at work and you can’t listen to it all at iTunes, Stitcher or on fujilove, here are the key points:

Fujinon X Mount Lenses

Fujifilm X100, X-E3, X-T20 and X-T3

  • Fujifilm X100 was the game changer and started the X series success
  • When developing the X100, Fujifilm wondered who is going to buy a fixed lens camera at this price point, but it turned out to be a success
  • Fujifilm X-T3 is balance of size, weight and quality in a good price point, but for Billy even the X-T3 is big
  • Billy’s go-to camera is the Fujifilm X-E3, paired with XF35mmF2, XF23mmF2 and occasionally the XF50mmF2 because of portability
  • Fujifilm X-T20 with no joystick is a dealbreaker for him

Fujifilm X-H1

  • Fujifilm X-H1 latest firmware introduced lots of improvements and the new lower price makes it very tempting
  • The Fujifilm X-H1 maybe has been misunderstood by the market. It had a lot of new video features, so people considered it more a video camera. But it is also a better and more robust camera, and facilitates handling of bigger lenses. For Professionals weight is sometimes not a problem, but more durability. That’s why Fujifilm launched the Fujifilm X-H1. It should also appeal to DSLR customers, who were on the fence of switching to mirrorless. IBIS is quite nice also for photography, especially in low light
  • Shutter has an S1 (half press) and S2 (full contact to release shutter) position. Regarding the Fujifilm X-H1, you can contact your Fujifilm service and see if they have an option to adjust the S1 and S2 position to your taste (low, medium or high). There might be a charge for that service, depending on your country

IBIS

  • Fujifilm wanted to make an excellent IBIS system, and it is one of the best on the market. But the size of the system was too big to put it into other X-series cameras. At this moment, it can’t fit in other cameras, but hopefully one day IBIS can be designed smaller and make it fit on other cameras

Fujinon G Mount Lenses

  • Fujinon GF 50mm f/3.5 coming in 2019 and Fujinon GF 45-100mm f/4 in 2020
  • Fujinon GF 100-200mm f/5.6 R LM OIS WR: If you look to move into medium format, you don’t have many lenses initially to choose from, so zoom lenses can cover various focal lengths. The GF100-200 is compatible with teleconverter. It’s a little bit heavier, but very sharp. At that focal length with medium format sensor, you can isolate your subject very well
