Jacques Gaines: Fuji Guy Francis Bellefeuille Interview – Full Frame Will Never Happen So Stop Asking and More

Jacques Gaines caught up with Fuji Guy Francis Bellefeuille and asked him two questions that people keep asking. The first is if Fujifilm will ever go Full Frame and if you follow Fujifilm closely you know the answer is a resounding never. The other question that is asked a lot is why should you buy a Fujifilm X-H1 if the X-T3 is a technologically better camera? Below are some excerpts and the second question:

  • Fujifilm doesn’t need Full Frame and it’s why they went to medium format
  • APS-C and Full Frame are too close
  • The Full Frame market is too over saturated
  • Fujifilm has a very strong APS-C system and they keep pushing the market
  • Fujifilm is driving the APS-C market forward with things like the ability to record 4k60 10-bit in camera before anyone else
  • Sticking with APS-C also keeps their customer base from having to switch lenses later for a different sensor size
  • There isn’t a big difference in image quality between APS-C and Full Frame
  • Fujifilm noise is more like a texture than artifacts so it’s not offensive

Francis Bellefeuille didn’t want to answer the second question about why you should buy the X-H1 over X-T3, but he did his best. I personally applaud Fujifilm for not chasing after other camera companies and I hope they can get the GFX to be competitive with mirrorless Full Frame cameras like the Sony a7RIII.

  • The Fujifilm X-T3 is a beast and a nice attack on the video market
  • X-H1 is a tank that you can beat the *beep* out of it
  • 25% thicker magnesium so you can knock it around more
  • IBIS for the first time in a Fujifilm Camera
  • X-H1 is our we can do IBIS camera
  • The first camera that they could do video seriously
  • IBIS and Ruggedness are it’s only stand out features
  • X-H1 can take a lot of rain and more
  • X-T3 can’t take as much rain
  • Both handle the cold the same
