The problem with most flagship products is that generally speaking they aren’t cheap. The same can be said for flagship cameras which are usually priced rather high, such as the Fujifilm X-T2 which is priced at $1,600. However the good news for those looking to jump into Fujifilm’s system, the rumored X-T3 could actually be cheaper.
In a report from Fuji Rumors, they claim to have heard from a trusted source that the upcoming X-T3 will be priced less than the X-T2. It is unclear as to how much less we are talking about, but given that the X-T2 is priced at $1,600, realistically we don’t expect it to be much cheaper and could be around $1,400-$1,500, or as Fuji Rumors notes, it could have a special launch price of $1,300 which was what the X-T1 was launched at (fingers crossed!).
Companies such as Sony have been making a name for themselves by launching mirrorless cameras with full-frame sensors. It would stand to reason that the competition might want to do the same in order to stay competitive, something that Nikon is rumored to be doing. However Fujifilm on the other hand has chosen not to.
However the good news is that while Fujifilm might not be going the full-frame sensor route, it does not mean that they won't be borrowing some features from Sony's full-frame flagships. In a report from Fuji Rumors, they have heard that rumored X-T3 could offer up 20fps continuous shooting which will make it ideal for photographers shooting fast moving subject matter, such as sports or wildlife.
When it comes to compact cameras from Fujifilm, the company is probably best known for the Fujifilm X100 series of cameras, in which there have been four iterations to date. However for a compact, it is priced at a premium which some might argue is worth the money, but regardless its premium pricing does put it out of reach for certain customers.
However if you're after a Fujifilm compact that won't cost an arm and a leg, not to worry as the company has since unveiled a new digital compact in the form of the Fujifilm XF10. This is a compact with a fixed-lens, meaning that unlike certain compacts that offer a lens that can zoom in and out, the XF10 will come with a fixed 18.5mm f/2.8 lens. The fact that it's fixed might seem restrictive for some users, but given the success and popularity of the X100 series, we reckon there's probably a market for fixed lens compacts.
After hearing the leaks and rumors of the Fujifilm X-T100 for a while now, it looks like the camera has been made official as promised. Given that some of the leaks were actually directly from Fujifilm who posted the information earlier than expected, it's not surprising that it lines up with what we're seeing in the press release.
For those who are learning about the X-T100 for the first time, this is Fujifilm's latest mirrorless camera. However it is aimed at photographers who don't want or need to spend the money on the flagship X-T2 or X-Pro2, but who also want something a bit better performing compared to the entry-level X-A5.
Fujifilm's upcoming mirrorless camera the X-T100 is expected to be announced soon, but it seems that leaks ahead of the announcement have pretty much given everything away. In fact the latest sighting on camera retailer Adorama's website has revealed the potential price of the upcoming camera.
According to the listing (which has since been removed), it seems that the camera could be priced anywhere between $550 to $600 for the body only. This means that you will need to purchase the lens separately, or if you're already a Fujifilm user with a collection of X-series lenses, then you can just buy the camera body only.
Fujifilm's next camera that will be announced in the near future will be the X-T100, or at least that's what the rumors are claiming. In fact just a few days ago, Fujifilm EU themselves accidentally leaked the specs of the camera and for those wondering about its looks, we might have an idea as well.
This is according to a tweet by Nokishita Camera in which alleged images of the X-T100 found their way online. Based on what we can tell, and assuming that the image is accurate, it seems that Fujifilm will be maintaining their design language from previous cameras.
Fujifilm has a new camera in the works that they are expected to announce soon on the 24th of May, but it seems that someone over in Fujifilm EU might have gotten ahead of themselves and accidentally published the complete specs of the upcoming Fujifilm X-T100. The original posting was discovered by Nokishita Camera (via Fuji Rumors) which has since been taken down.
In terms of specs, the X-T100 will feature a 24.2MP APS-C sensor, a three-way tilting LCD monitor, and an electronic viewfinder. It will also support X-mounted lenses so if you've built up a collection over the years, then you should be able to use them with the X-T100 without any issue.
Fujifilm might be known to some for its Instax series of cameras. For those unfamiliar with these cameras, basically they're film cameras that can print photos taken on the spot. For the most part the photos printed are rectangular in shape, but for those who are fans of the square format, you might be interested in Fujifilm's latest offering.
The company has recently announced their latest Instax camera in the form of the Instax Square SQ6. For those the most part the SQ6 will function similarly to other Fujifilm Instax camera where it will let photographers take photos and print them instantly, but the main difference would be that the format printed will be square.
The Fujifilm X-T2 was officially announced back in 2016 which means that the camera is about 2 years old. The good news is that if you were hoping to see where Fujifilm might be taking its flagship X-T series of mirrorless cameras, the folks at Fuji Rumors are claiming that we might not have to wait too long to find out.
According to their sources, they claim that the X-T3 is expected to make an appearance at Photokina 2018. The event is scheduled for September 2018 which means that we still have a bit of waiting to do, but if true it means that we can expect to see it launched later this year or possibly early next year.
There is an ongoing debate in the photography world as to whether or not mirrorless cameras have the potential to replace DSLRs. There are some well-known professionals who have made the switch very publicly, but at the same time there are some technical shortcomings in mirrorless cameras that are hard to ignore.
An example would in autofocus speeds where there are plenty of DSLRs that have no problems running circles around mirrorless systems. However Fujifilm thinks that this gap could soon be closed based on an interview with Focus Numerique (via Mirrorless Rumors) where according to the Fujifilm managers that were interviewed, they think that the company's mirrorless cameras have the potential to catchup to DSLR autofocus performance.
After hearing rumors and seeing a bunch of leaks, it looks like Fujifilm has officially announced their next camera, the Fujifilm X-H1. This is a camera which Fujifilm is calling "the best performance camera" in their X-series lineup, which is actually saying a lot given that the X-T1 and X-Pro2 are some of the more highly-rated mirrorless cameras today.
However as per the rumors, it seems that the X-H1 has been designed with videographers in mind, something that Fujifilm has readily admitted in its press release. This is thanks to features like a 5-axis in-body image stabilizer, a flicker reduction mode, and also a new ETERNA mode which is a film simulation mode that supposedly makes it "ideal" for shooting movies.
If the rumors are true, Fujifilm is expected to officially announce the Fujifilm X-H1 mirrorless camera in the next couple of days. We have been hearing about the camera in a steady stream of leaks, with the most recent revealing the possible design of it. However none of this is official yet so there was always the off-chance that it could all be one massive hoax.
However it looks like the rumors have since been corroborated by Amazon, who for a very brief moment actually listed the camera on its website. This was spotted by the folks at Fuji Rumors who were quick enough to snag some screenshots before the page was taken down. The listings were for the X-H1 (body only), the X-H1 with grip, and also the vertical grip accessory for the camera.
