Fujifilm X-A7 Entry-Level Mirrorless Camera Announced

Cameras can be an expensive hobby to get into, especially if you’re not sure if you’re quite ready to commit to buying lenses and so on. However, if you are looking to dip your toes in the water, you might be interested to learn that Fujifilm has recently taken the wraps off its latest entry-level camera in the form of the Fujifilm X-A7.

This is the successor to the X-A5 and it will be sporting a brand new 24.2MP APS-C sensor. It will also feature an ISO range of 200-12,800 that can be further expanded to 100-51,200 if you want. There will also be support for continuous shooting of up to speeds of 6 fps. Similar to the design of other Fujifilm cameras, the X-A7 will favor the use of external dials where there will be a dial on the top that lets users swap between the various shooting modes.

Fujifilm X-pro3 Could Ditch The D-pad Controls On The Back

Fujifilm X-Pro3 Could Ditch The D-Pad Controls On The Back

In the past few months, we have been hearing rumors that Fujifilm could be working on a new camera in the form of the Fujifilm X-Pro3. The camera is expected to come with some redesign hardware features, such as a “unique” tilt screen. Now according to a new report from Fuji Rumors, it seems that the company could be making another design change that some might not be too happy about.

According to the report, apparently Fujifilm is expected to ditch the D-pad controls found on the back of the camera. It is unclear what this means for the camera and its controls, although there is still that tiny joystick which we guess could act as a replacement of sort, although like we said, we’re sure that there will be some who probably will miss it and won’t be too thrilled with this redesign.

Fujifilm X-Pro3 Might Be Announced In The Second Half Of October

If you’re looking for a rangefinder style camera that won’t break the bank like a Leica, then Fujifilm’s X-Pro series might be a series of cameras that you are familiar with. Now, the X-Pro2 has been out for a while now, which is why we have started to hear rumors that an X-Pro3 could be close to launching.

Rumors from earlier this year suggest that the camera could launch in 2019, and now a new report from Fuji Rumors claim that the camera might actually be launching in the second half of October. There are no specific dates mentioned yet so it’s really anyone’s guess, but if it’s true, then we only have about a month and a half before we get all the official details.

Fujifilm X-pro3 Could Come With A 'unique' Tilt Screen

Fujifilm X-Pro3 Could Come With A 'Unique' Tilt Screen

These days, digital cameras usually come with an LCD screen on the back that can be tilted. This allows users, especially vloggers, to turn the screen towards them so that they can see themselves while the film to ensure that they are in the frame. It also allows photographers to get down low or up high for some unique perspectives.

Unfortunately, not all camera makers have adopted this feature, especially Fujifilm when it comes to their X-Pro series of rangefinder mirrorless cameras. However, according to a report from Fuji Rumors, that is expected to change with the X-Pro3 in which they have heard from “trusted sources” that the X-Pro3 could come with a “unique” tilt screen.

Fujifilm Patents A Touch Sensitive Top Lcd Panel For Its Cameras

Fujifilm Patents A Touch Sensitive Top LCD Panel For Its Cameras

When Fujifilm launched the X-H1 mirrorless camera, it was one of the few Fujifilm cameras that came with a top LCD display. This kind of display can be found on DSLR cameras from the likes of Canon and Nikon, but rarely on Fujifilm cameras. However, it seems that now that Fujifilm has implemented it, they could be looking at ways to improve on it.

According to a report from Fuji Rumors, they have stumbled across a patent which suggests that Fujifilm has been toying with the idea of making the LCD panel touch sensitive. Now the screen itself is pretty small, so it’s not as if it will be used in the same way you might expect from a touch LCD panel mounted on the back of the camera.

Fujifilm X-pro3 Might Come With A Tilt Screen

Fujifilm X-Pro3 Might Come With A Tilt Screen

We have been hearing rumors that a new Fujifilm X-Pro3 could be in the works and now according to a new report from Fuji Rumors, one of the alleged new features of the upcoming camera could be the inclusion of a tilt screen. For photographers using other brands, a tilt screen is hardly groundbreaking.

However, as Fuji Rumors notes, Fujifilm has in the past been kind of resistant to the idea of tilt displays for its rangefinder cameras, like the X-Pro series. The company has employed the use of the feature in other models except its X-Pro series, the X100 series, and the X-E series, so this could be quite useful for some.

Fujifilm Instax Mini Liplay Officially Announced

Fujifilm Instax Mini LiPlay Officially Announced

Fujifilm’s Instax instant-print cameras are pretty popular, especially these days when it seems that film is making a comeback of sorts. The downside to the majority of these cameras is that the focus and emphasis is placed on being able to create physical prints on the spot, but what if you wanted a digital copy that you can share online as well?

Not to worry because Fujifilm has you covered. The company has announced their latest Instax camera in the form of the Mini LiPlay. This is a “hybrid” camera, according to the company, because it combines the best of both worlds. Not only can this print images on the spot, but it can also store a digital copy which can then be transferred to your smartphone wirelessly where you can then upload it to your social media.

Fujifilm Decides To Sell Monochrome Film Again Because Of Millennials

Fujifilm Decides To Sell Monochrome Film Again Because Of Millennials


There’s a lot that you may want to blame millennials for and now you can add the return of monochrome film to that list. Fujifilm today announced that it’s going to bring back its black-and-white film due to demand from “millennials and GenZs.” The company had actually stopped production of its monochrome film over a year ago.

Fujifilm says that its new Neopan 100 Acros II film is being developed based on feedback from the aforementioned demographic and that they’re the new “film enthusiasts,” so it’s catering to them by relaunching a monochrome film.

Fujifilm X-pro3 Registered, Could Be Launching This Fall

Fujifilm X-Pro3 Registered, Could Be Launching This Fall

If rangefinder-style cameras are your kind of thing but you don’t want to spend the money or have the money for a Leica, Fujifilm’s X-Pro series comes pretty close. In fact, it seems that we might be able to expect to see a new X-Pro camera later this year as it has been rumored that the X-Pro3, successor to the X-Pro2 which was launched in 2016, could be coming in the fall of 2019.

In addition to the rumor that it could launch this fall, Nokishita Camera recently tweeted that an unknown Fujifilm camera has been registered with the model number FF190002, leading to speculation that it could be the X-Pro3. While there is a possibility that it could be the X-H2, it is most likely the X-Pro3 because the X-H2 is said to only arrive in 2020.

Rumored Fujifilm X-pro3 Specs Hint At In-body Image Stabilization

Rumored Fujifilm X-Pro3 Specs Hint At In-Body Image Stabilization

Back in 2016, Fujifilm launched one of their latest flagship mirrorless cameras in the form of the X-Pro2. We imagine that following the success of their X-Pro series of cameras amongst those who prefer the rangefinder style, Fujifilm will probably at some point in the future launch the X-Pro3.

Now according to a report from Fuji Addict, they claim to have heard from a source who has since revealed some of the alleged specs of the X-Pro3. This includes the use of a 24MP/26.1MP X-Trans CMOS sensor, the X-processor 4 that comes with a quad CPU, the ability to record 4K video at 60fps, and also weather sealing in a magnesium alloy body.

Fujifilm Gfx100 Medium Format Mirrorless Camera Announced

Fujifilm GFX100 Medium Format Mirrorless Camera Announced

Several years ago, Fujifilm decided to dive into the medium format camera market by launching the Fujifilm GFX 50S. The company has since released new models and successors since, but this could possibly be the company’s biggest update to yet. Fujifilm has announced a new mirrorless camera in the form of the GFX100.

This will be part of the GFX medium format lineup (although we’re not sure if this will replace the GFX 50 series or it will exist alongside it), but it will be a camera with a whopping 102MP sensor. Given the megapixel count, there is a very good chance that this camera is aimed more at professionals who have the need for such a camera, rather than your average photographer or enthusiast.

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.

Fujifilm X-pro3 Might Be Launched This Year

Fujifilm X-Pro3 Might Be Launched This Year

Fujifilm has several high-end mirrorless cameras, one of which is a rangefinder-style camera in the form of the X-Pro series. So far there have been two models: the X-Pro and the X-Pro2, and according to an earlier rumor by Fuji Rumors, it has been rumored that the X-Pro3 could actually be launched later this year.

Details about the camera are next to nothing at the moment, but according to the publication, they have recently received a tip from a source that claims that the X-Pro3 could actually be manufactured in Japan. For those unfamiliar, Fujifilm has taken pride at how the bulk of its cameras and lenses are made in Japan.

Fujifilm X-t30 Mirrorless Camera Announced

Fujifilm X-T30 Mirrorless Camera Announced

We have been hearing rumors that Fujifilm could be close to launching a new mirrorless camera in the form of the X-T30. Turns out the rumors were right on the money as the company has since officially announced the camera, making it the company’s latest mirrorless camera to date.

However this is the X-T30 which makes it the successor to the X-T20. This means that it is not one of Fujifilm’s higher-end cameras like the X-T3 or the X-Pro2 or the X-H1. However if pricing is a concern of yours, then the X-T30 is definitely priced lower than the flagship models and should be good enough to get you into the game.
