Fujifilm’s newly promoted President and Managing Director of Fujifilm in Europe, Toshi Iida, has spoken in an interview with Amateur Photographer. In it, they talk about how Fuji’s dealt with COVID-19 and their “significantly better” performance this year compared with the rest of the industry. They also spoke about the future, including Fuji’s decision to stick with APS-C going forward.
One of the most useful features to be added to digital cameras in the last few years is in-body image stabilisation, or “IBIS”. Some companies have implemented extremely good implementations over the years while others have only jumped into the IBIS game recently and are still playing catch up. But regardless of which category they fall into, all companies are actively working to improve it.
We recently got a behind the scenes look at the Olympus IBIS system and how it’s grown over the years, and now Fuji has also posted a video going over the evolution of its IBIS system, to coincide with the release of the recently announced new Fuji X-S10 – which has a scaled-down, but very impressive looking IBIS system offering up to six stops of stabilisation.
It’s odd, the effect that the sound a camera’s shutter makes when it’s fired can have on a person. It’s odder still that we require one at all, although they add them to the apps we use for the otherwise silent cameras in our phones. A good heavy *clunk* makes you confident you’ve got the shot, while others can leave you feeling a little underwhelmed.
In this video, a Fujifilm employee going by the YouTube username nycphotog2006 decided to put together the sounds of five of Fujifilm’s most popular interchangeable lens mirrorless cameras – The Fujifilm X-T1, X-T2, X-T3, the shiny new X-T4 and the video-centric X-H1.
The final specs are pretty much as the leaks suggested. It features a 26.1-megapixel APS-C X-Trans BSCI CMOS sensor, 5-axis In-body image stabilisation, up to 15fps continuous shooting with the mechanical shutter and offers 4K DCI/UHD video at up to 60fps and 1080p at an impressive 240fps.
Nokishita’s on a roll today. After previously leaking the entire spec sheet for the upcoming Fujifilm X-T4, they’ve now also leaked all of the product photos for the new camera via Twitter. From the images, it looks it’ll become available in both the standard black as well as black and silver variants.
If there’s one thing about Fuji shooters, they tend to get very excited whenever a new model is on the way. They like speculating about what features it may have, whether this’ll change or that’ll see an upgrade. There have been a lot of rumours about the upcoming Fujifilm X-T4, but now it looks like all of those rumours can be put to bed. Maybe.
Nokishita has leaked what they say the complete spec sheet for the Fujifilm X-T4, which covers everything from the sensor and other hardware to the software features and the new Eterna Bleach Bypass film simulation mode.
Man, Fuji rumour mill has been going nuts over the last couple of days with Fujifilm X-T4 leaks. I’ve been trying to wrap my head around them all to see how things are shaping up, and which leaks and rumours seem to be the most reliable and thought I’d try to compile them here in one place.
Bear in mind, though, these are leaks and rumours. Until we hear an official announcement from Fuji, there are no guarantees.
It looks like we might be getting close to an announcement for the Fujifilm X-T4 according to a report on Fuji Rumors. They say they’ve received some good information that they’ve “triple checked”, and the X-T4 is not only coming soon, but it will have in-body-image stabilisation (IBIS).
Nokishita posted a screenshot showing the registration of Fujifilm cameras with the codes FF190005 and FF190004 (expected to be the X-T3 replacement) with China’s MIIT on January 8th. But Fuji Rumors says that an official announcement could come as soon as next month.
