Fujifilm X100v Could Come With A Brand New Lens

Fujifilm X100V Could Come With A Brand New Lens

We had recently heard a rumor that the Fujifilm X100F successor, potentially known as the X100V or X200, will only be arriving in 2020. We are pretty excited for it given how good the X100 series has been, and now according to a new report from Fuji Rumors, it seems that there are more reasons to be excited for the camera.

This is because according to the publication’s sources, they have been told that the camera will come with a new lens. Why is this a big deal? For years, the X100 series comes with a 23mm f/2.0 fixed lens. In a way, this is what makes the camera so appealing because a 23mm lens is actually a pretty decent general purpose lens, where it’s not too wide or not too zoomed, making it idea for a walkaround lens.

2020 Toyota Supra Four-cylinder May Come To America

2020 Toyota Supra four-cylinder may come to America

When the 2020 Toyota Supra was revealed at the Detroit Auto Show, only one engine option was announced for the U.S.: a 335-horsepower inline-six. It looks like that will change, though, as California Air Resources Board documentation, originally discovered by Automobile, reveals that the organization certified a four-cylinder version for the 2020 model. This indicates that we'll probably see a four-cylinder Supra in the U.S. soon. The engine listed is a 2.0-liter unit with an eight-speed automatic transmission and is listed as being used in several other BMWs including the already announced four-cylinder Z4 sDrive30i.

We know of two four-cylinder engines being offered in the new Supra in Japan. One makes just 197 horsepower and 236 pound-feet of torque, and the other makes 255-horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. This latter one is surely the one listed in the CARB documentation since the numbers match the four-cylinder BMW Z4 exactly, and that model is in the same listing.

Mazda Says Skyactiv-x Will Come To The U.s, But Not When

Mazda says Skyactiv-X will come to the U.S, but not when

Mazda executives say the new 2.0-liter Skyactiv-X powerplant will still take some time to arrive to the North American market. The Skyactiv-X is a high-compression gasoline engine, and its 16:1 compression ratio is comparable to that of a diesel engine.

"We have a lot of technology. And we are introducing each technology in each region when the time is right," said Mazda North America CEO Masahiro Moro at the SAE International WCX Conference, according to Automotive News. Moro stated that while the Skyactiv-X can indeed pass EPA emissions regulations, it's not in the immediate pipeline for U.S-bound Mazdas; the slightly less hardcore Skyactiv-G will be amended first.

Sony Playstation Vita Production Has Officially Come To An End

Sony PlayStation Vita Production Has Officially Come To An End

In the console space, there is Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo, each of whom have their own home console device. However when it comes to handhelds, that space was pretty much a fight between Nintendo and Sony, although it seems that now Sony could finally be conceding that market to Nintendo entirely.

This is because Sony has officially ended the production of its PlayStation Vita console. We had previously heard that Sony would be winding down production, and it looks like it has finally come to an end. The PS Vita was launched back in 2011 which means that it has been around for about 8 years or so, although in the past few years, Sony hasn’t really done much with it.

Honda Civic Hatchback Next-gen Production May Come To North America

Honda Civic hatchback next-gen production may come to North America

Honda just announced this week that it will be closing its Civic hatchback factory in Swindon in the U.K. Besides meaning the potential loss of 3,500 jobs, the plant closure left us wondering what the future is for the Honda Civic hatchback, particularly the Type R, both of which are produced there for global markets including our own. But Honda has provided us a statement that reveals the hatchback and Type R appear to be safe, where production may be moved to, and when we may be seeing a totally new Civic.

According to Honda, the company is looking at bringing hatchback production to North America. Part of the reason for this is that the hatch is quite popular. Honda says that almost 20 percent of North American Civic sales are of the hatchback, and that's more than the company expected. And it does seem logical to bring production closer to where the cars are being sold. The Type R in particular would make sense since its engine is already build in Ohio.

Sony Xperia Xz3 Pre-orders Will Come With A Copy Of Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4

Sony Xperia XZ3 Pre-Orders Will Come With A Copy Of Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4

At IFA 2018 a few weeks ago, Sony announced their latest flagship mobile phone, the Sony Xperia XZ3. Now Sony has been sort of taking a backseat in the smartphone business in recent times, where they have pulled out of certain markets, but that doesn’t mean that they do not care because it appears that in a bid to help encourage sales of the Xperia XZ3, Sony will be tossing in a free copy of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.
