Last year Fujifilm announced the successor the X-T1 mirrorless camera in the form of the Fujifilm X-T2. Now it seems that thanks to the folks at Fuji Rumors, they have heard some rumblings about a potential successor that could be called the X-T2S, and one possible feature of the camera might have been revealed.
According to the report, it seems that one potential feature of the X-T2S is that it will come with in-body image stabilization. What this means is that regardless of whatever lens you pop onto it, there will be some form of image stabilization offered. At the moment not ever XF lens by Fujifilm comes with stabilization, so no doubt if this feature is true, it will prove to be a boon to users.

According to a report by Reuters Japanese electronics manufacturer Sony has lifted its operating income estimate for the financial year ended March 31. Sony says it now expects an income of around ¥285 billion ($2.6 billion), which is up from a 240 billion yen estimate in February.
The main reason for the adjustment of the estimate are lower amortization costs for Sony's financial services segment but the company also cites lower-than-anticipated costs for its image sensor business. The company doesn't provide any more detail than that, so we can only speculate what those anticipated costs were.
