Fujifilm X-T3 Will Be Announced at Photokina 2018 and Fujifilm X-H1 Update

So the rumors are flying fast and furious and I don’t normally like to bug my source for more because he’s a busy person, but since someone keeps taking my rumors and muddying the water and people are asking for more here we go. Fujifilm X-T3 to come at Photokina 2018 with a new processor, which is where the X-H1 confusion came from. X-H1 will have the same processor as the X-T2. The max framerate will be 4k 60p for the X-T3, while the X-H1 max frame rate will be 4k 30p and 1080 120p, which is a little disappointing. The Fujifilm X-H1 will use the Fujifilm WP-126s battery which is also disappointing. It sounds like the X-H will only be special in the sense that it offers very special video-centric image quality via simulations. You can read an excerpt of our conversation below.

Battery type ;126 S

Proccesor will be Fujifilm x-processor pro like X-T2,

X-T3 will be announce at 2018 Photokina and it will have new Processor. and İt will have Max Framerate 4K : 60 fps”

( confused X-H1’s and X-T3’s processor)

X-H 1’s Max Framerate 4K :30fps. X-H1’s Max Framerate HD :120fps

While Rumors aren’t our primary purpose there are people inside Fujifilm that like our site and we would like to keep it that way. So I do not want to poke the bear more than I have to. I greatly appreciate any and all tips and I will respect your anonymity, but watch how quickly this rumor gets copied. I am going to get back to editing and hopefully shooting today 🙂

    Interesting move by Fuji. Does this mean the X-T will continue to be the
    flag ship? Will it inherit the bigger body and the IBIS from the X-H?
    In that case, the X-H seems like a strange stop-gap if the X-T comes out
    only a year later. If it doesn’t get the bigger body or other X-H
    features then customers will be left to choose from 2 cameras that both
    fall short in some respects. It doesn’t look like Fuji can or will
    specialize as much as Sony or Panasonic.
    Let’s see how much of this turns out to be true in the end.

    • I think it’s like how we have the G9 and GH5. Also a7 and a7S. The GFX comes in at the top. I think they are being very smart about this move.

      • I think it would’ve been a smart move if the X-H had the new processor and larger battery. People who buy the X-H in the few months before the X-T3 is announced would be pissed when latter has a new processor and possibly higher frame rate.

        • It’s more than a few months and I don’t think the X-T3 will perform on the same level as the X-H for videographers. I wish I had more details, but that’s it for now.

          I might buy the X-H and X-T3 I was going to keep my X-T2 and add the X-H, but maybe ill replace it and then add the X-T3. Just trying to decide what to do.

            4k 60p will be nice on the X-T3. So far apart from 200mb vs 100mb (of the X-T2) there doesn’t seem to be much differentiating the two models…

        • nzswedespeed

          Since the Japanese govt are encouraging Fuji to help Nikon out. Maybe they can strike a deal for Fuji to use Nikon’s sensors (ie D500 20mp unit) so they are not fully reliant on what Sony offers. It’s shame Samsung arent selling that 28mp BSI sensor…

      • nzswedespeed

        But the X-H1 from the sounds of it is meant to be Fuji’s GH5? And then the X-T3 is rumoured to have superior video specs..?

    • nzswedespeed

      Yes I agree from what we know so far, it doesn’t seem very logical! IF the X-H1 had the new sensor & processor which trickles down to the X-T3 6 months alter, that seems like a smart move.

      But from the info we have been provided, this makes the hierarchy of Fuji’s lineup very confusing….So the video orientated X-H1 has an inferior sensor processor and slower frame rates to the X-T3?? Also using the average battery in a rumoured video orientated camera when the have the larger GFX battery on hand baffles me.

      i am sure (hope) Fuji have a couple of tricks up their sleeve, but so far this seems like a somewhat rushed project…? It sounds like the two year old specs of the X-Pro2/X-T2 put into a beefier more expensive body…
