FujiAddict Rumor Timeline Roundup: Fujifilm X-H1, X-F10, X-F100, X-T3, GFX 50R, and GFX 100S


The past few days have been crazy for breaking rumors and FujiAddict sources really knocked it out of the park. So I have been asked to condense the release dates into an easy to read timeline with details, but hey when’s the last time 6 cameras leaked with tons of details in 3 posts anywhere, but here?

2018

  • Fujifilm X-H1 Expected February 2018
    • IBIS
    • Max Framerate 4K :30fps. X-H1’s Max Framerate HD :120fps
    • Higher quality video than X-T2
    • exposure compensation button instead of exposure compensation Dial
    • Sub Monochrome LCD Monitor
    • Fujifilm WP-126s battery
    • much bigger and deeper hand grip
    • same processor as X-T2
    • in X photographers hands today
    • dust and weather-resistant body
    • camera for both videographers and photographers
    • between $1900 and $2200
  • Fujifilm X80 will likely become XF10 due to a name change Launch date unknown
    • maybe bayer sensor
  • Fujifilm X-T100 Q1
    • include new XC 15-45 kit lens
    • Q1 is an opinion from source
  • Fujifilm GFX 50R Photokina 2018 (September 25 – September 30)
    • Price between $3,900 to $4,300
    • 50MP sensor still
    • Range Finder Medium Format Mirrorless İntercangeable Lens Camera
    • Announcement or shipping ( which one is not clear ) will be at  Photokina 2018
    • Basically X-Pro version of GFX 50S
  • Fujifilm X-T3 Photokina 2018 (September 25 – September 30)
    • New Processor
    • Max Framerate 4K : 60 fps

2019/2020

  • Fujifilm GFX 100S Photokina 2019 (May 8th to 11th) 0r 2020
    • very expensive
    • IMX461 Sensor, which we spotted first a long time ago

You can read the individual rumors (1, 2, 3) and I will be writing about the various cameras listed above more in the future because I think we can make some safe inference like the video-centric X-H1 should have a grip with XLR jacks or even a guess/wish that maybe the video finder can be removed so that you can securely mount something like an ATMOS on top. It’s highly likely Fujifilm designed the X-H1 to do much of what the Panasonic GH5 does and more, while the X-T3 will likely be a Sony a9 killer. It’s important to use the right tool for the job.

    Could anybody tell me if the H in the fuji X-H1 could standfor aps-H size sensor just like Sigma has for its DP ‘s.
    Would the X lenses couver the cirle of image or is it the GF lenses ,they would cover the lens circle .

    • I am sure they could. Most lenses have large image circle, but I doubt it stands for APS-H. There hasn’t been much public development of this size sensor.

    “the X-T3 will likely be a Sony a9 killer”
    Wow! Really?!

    • Franko

      until then, sony will have the a9R released.

      • gctr

        Sony has just released the a9. So I believe the a9r won’t be out so soon. Even so, saying that a possible Fuji X-T3 will be capable to beat the 20 fps, no blackout, no rolling shutter and incredible AF Sony a9 it’s pretty high bet. Don’t get mt wrong, I’d love to see Fuji doing that, but it’s very unlikely.

        If it happens I’ll be the first to congratulate FujiAddict for the bullseye shot.

        • Sony and Fujifilm have largely had a back and forth over the years if you compare between Full Frame and APS-C. Believe it or not cell phone sensors are by far the most advances and m43 was supposed to be the sweet spot for ramping technology up and into bigger sensors, but APS-C has done very well thanks to Fujifilm so m43 has never really stood out beyond size. So much has to do with when sensor tech becomes available to the public.

          Right now Full Frame has some unique advantages that Sony will rest on for a few years and APS-C and Medium format are scheduled to have big leaps during this time.

          I think Sony will do a a9R and a9S at some point, but we are still waiting on a7SIII and a7MIII and other things…

          • gctr

            But the sensor size is not my point. Actually I think Fuji shouldn’t get into the Full Frame battlefield. But the a9 is a high speed machine, and Sony , with the stacked sensor, has raised the bar to an almost unbeatable level.

          • Robert Falconer

            Sony Semiconductor also need to recoup their investment on that technology, something that can’t be done selling to Sony Imaging alone. So my guess is that they will soon bring the tech to APS-C as well and sell it to other customers.

        • Robert Falconer

          Sony will almost certainly bring the stacked BSI sensor tech to APS-C, and they’ve already publicly stated that another step forward in either DR or megapixel count is coming to APS-C as well, so an X-T3 could actually exceed the A9’s performance envelope when it comes to all facets of operational speed. I’ve also heard rumors that Fuji has next generation processing technology set to debut next year (that some claim will surpass everyone else), so my guess is that the X-T3 will be a pretty solid step forward over the existing models.

    I am bit worried if GFX 100S is very expensive. Makes me wonder is there point to invest on GFX if future bodies are significantly more expensive and therefore out of reach for me.

    • The point seems to be having a GFX for everyone in the high end market. I do not thing it will go crazy high, but expensive could be relative to the GFX R. I imagine in the future there will be GFX from 3-10k that will kill off high end DSLRs and if they just push the price down then GFX will try to follow and squeeze them out.
