Fuji X-T30 Camera Registered, announcement in next few months

Fuji registered one more camera at wireless certification agency. And the model code of the camera is FF180003. The camera features same wireless part as we have seen inside the Fuji xt3 camera. As we have told you earlier also and [Fuji X-T30 Coming in 2019] Based on previous trends of Fuji, It’s look like Fuji registered Fuji X-T30 camera and next few months we will be having a affordable X-T3 camera in hour hands.

Take a look at the registration details of the Fuji X-T30 camera

Fuji X-T30, When actually it’s coming ?

In Past we have seen that, there was more than 14 months of gap between Fuji X-T1 and Fuji X-T10 announcement. But, there was only 6 months of gap between the Fuji X-T2 and Fuji X-T20 announcement. So, its all depend upon the sales number and market demand. Once the desired sales numbers are reached, Fuji will sure announce a affordable Fuji X-T3 camera under Fuji X-T30 body to reach out more people and gain more market share.
Based on a educated guess the Fuji X-T30 camera should arrive sometime around May / June of 2019 is everything goes on schedule inside Fuji.

Fuji X-T3 de-ranked, low market demand for now

Although we do know that Fuji X-T3 camera was selling like hotcakes on the first day after its release. But, the market demand Fuji X-T3 camera doesn’t look so good for now. [check out best selling mirrorless camera at Amazon] although it do received lot of popularity in reviews worldwide but apparently at the time I am writing this post Fuji X-T3 #19 best selling Mirrorless camera at Amazon.com which is even behind Fuji X-H1 camera which is placed at #7 position.

Fuji X-T30 Coming in 2019

Well there are lot people, those who are waiting for Fuji X-T30 camera.  As we all know Fuji X-T30 camera is the only camera in Fuji line-up which uses third generation of 26MP Fuji X-Trans sensor. So, its bit obvious for people to wait for next iteration.

It’s bit logical to except a Fuji X-T30 camera from Fuji also,  If you look at the announcement pattern of Fuji X-T series Cameras, then you will find a rhythm in their announcement pattern.

Also Keep in mind factors like Target sales unit and Competitors.

In a very simple way if we talk about the possible arrival time of Fuji Next X-T30 camera then we have less than 6 months. Fuji will announce their Fuji X-T30 camera between March to May Months of 2019. Since, Fuji only took only 6 month to announce X-T20 camera after the announcement of Fuji X-T2.

 

Fuji X-T1 Jan, 2014
Fuji X-T10 May, 2015
Fuji X-T2 Jul, 2016
Fuji X-T20 Jan, 2017
Fuji X-T3 Sep, 2018

Now let’s. talk it in bit details while considering some other factors.

The First Factor is Target Sales of X-T3

In general other camera companies also follow the same trend and you should aware of that.  Once the sales target of a flagship camera is reached and company already earned a good amount from the sales. They announces the affordable version of the same camera to reach out more people and gain more sales.

List of Fuji Flagship Camera with Announcement Timeline

FUji X-Pro2 [outdated]
 Jan, 2016
Fuji X-E3 Sep, 2017
Fuji X-H1 Feb, 2018
Fuji X-T3 Sep, 2018

Fuji X-Pro2, Fuji X-H2 and X-E3 Updates are Due with X-Trans 4

Before we think of getting a affordable X-Trans 4 body in our hand we have to think over that Fuji flagships update are overdue. And if they put X-Trans 4 sensor under affordable body, it will hamper future flagship camera sales.

Fuji Changed its strategy, their only main aim is to lead the APS-C segment despite of taking care of their own flagship cameras, that’s why instead of putting attention towards X-Pro2 update Fuji putting attention towards other model development and announcement. Their only aim is to put best Specs in front of consumers under reasonable price tag.

Fuji X-T30 Early Announcement Depend Upon Competitor offerings

If Sony announces Sony A6700 on NAB or at Photokina 2019 [see first set of leaked specs here]  the only way to kill its sale is to put a affordable body in market carrying 26MP X-Trans sensor and with 4K30p recording option under or approx $1000 price range. So, Fuji X-T30 announcement actually depend competitors offerings.

Fuji X-T30 will arrive in 2019 only if Sony announces something better than Fuji X-T3 with lower price tag. Otherwise we have to wait till 2020.

Do share your thoughts with us. Do remember Fuji GFX 100 Official announcement is due for 2019

Fujifilm GFX 100 Cost and Early Specification

In a Latest interview by Cameta Camera at PhotoPlus EXPO 2018 Fujifilm manager confirmed that their Fuji film GFX 100 camera will going to cost you approx $9,995 in USA. Take a look at the set rumored specification of the upcoming Fuji GFX 100

Fujifilm GFX 100 Camera Early Specification

  • 100 MP Sony BSI
  • 4k
  • IBIS
  • Conventional Shape
  • Multipurpose camera / not limited to Studio application
  • $9,995 is the expected price

Sony and Fuji do have a long term partnership, As well know that Fuji GFX50 series camera is using Sony 50MP sensor at the same time the  upcoming Fuji GFX100 camera will also use Sony 100MP BSI CMOS Sensor.  Btw, building a sensor-shift image stabilization system for a 100MP Medium Format sensor is a real challenge.

The camera is set to arrive in the year of 2019 and we may see some kind of development announcement in Photokina 2019 event.

We will update you soon as we get any new information.

Fuji X-T3 and Nikon Z7 are Top Selling Cameras - Map Camera

 

 

New sales data are out of September Month from “Map Camera” Japan. The data shows up the sales report starting from September 1 to September 30.

Before we begin, let me tell you that retailers raking doesn’t reveal any trend. Since, it’s coming out from a specific retailer of a specific region. However it’s worth to notice that how the overall market and people preference now changing, the interest of people now shifted to mirrorless from DSLRs.

Top Selling Camera for the Month of September 2018

1st place: Fuji Film X-T3
2nd: Nikon Z 7
3rd: Sony α7 III
4th: Panasonic LUMIX G9 PRO
5th: Canon EOS Kiss M
6th: Sony α7R III
7th: Sony DSC-RX100 VI
8th : Nikon COOLPIX P1000
9th: Olympus Tough TG – 5
9th: Nikon D850

Fuji and Nikon trending at Top Position, after that we have the Sony A7III camera which was announced back on Feb 2018. At fourth Place with the Panasonic G9 and after that we have the only Canon camera in the list – EOS Kiss M. It’s really sad to see the Canon EOS R isn’t able to make its space in the list.

Fuji X-T3 High ISO Test

Fuji X-T3 High ISO Noise Performance in RAW mode is not better than the Fuji X-T2 in RAW mode.  At the same time the Nikon D500 is showing best noise control.  But at the same time the Fuji X-T3 is giving out class leading resolution of 26 MP.

Fuji X-T3 vs Fuji X-T2 vs Nikon D500 vs Sony A6500 – JPEG mode

Even JPEG mode of Fuji X-T2 is slightly better than Fuji X-T3, I want to know your thoughts on this.

Fuji X-H2 to Have 26MP X-Trans Sensor, DCI 4K 60p 10 Bit internal

 

Fuji X-T3 announced without DCI 4K and Built-in 5 axis IS, you know what I mean here.  According to latest rumors surfaced over the web, The Fuji X-H2 camera will have these two feature along with newly developed 26MP X-Trans 4 sensor and X-Processor 4 with Quad CPU. And this time we will also have Internal 4K 10bit 422 internal recording option in next Fuji Cinema FLagship Mirroless camera.

Let’s have look at our list of Expectation with the upcoming Fuji X-H2 camera.

1. 26 MP X-Trans IV Sensor inside Fuji X-H2

Fuji X-H2 camera is expected to have the 26 megapixel X-trans IV sensor. Not only the recently announced 26 megapixel sensor, the camera will also have, Fuji X processor IV with quad core CPU.

We have already seen the power of these two, the recently announced sensor and image processor upscaled the Fuji XT 3 camera performance to a next level. as you can see the company dedicated cinema mirrorless camera limited to 8 bit externally via HDMI where as the Fuji xt3 camera which is more dedicated for sports shooting now records 4k 60p 10 bit internally.

2. Fuji X-H2 4K 60P 4:2:2 10 Bit Internal

As we Fuji X-T3 model that features 4K 60P 4:2:0 10 Bit internal and 4:2:2 External, via HDMI. So, we can expect the introduction of Fuji X-H2 camera will have a major upgrade in the video core specification compared to the predecessor Fuji X-H1. The Fuji X-H1 camera was giving out 8-bit 4:2:2 externally. So, if Fuji adds 4K 60p 4:2:0 10bit internally or even a better option, 10 bit 4:2:2 internally it will be a great thing for professional cinematographers.

3. Extended 30 min. Recording time on 4K/60P

We are not expecting too much here, let me explain to you. The Fuji X-H1 camera was limited to 10 min.  on 4K mode and the Fuji X-T3 limited to camera 20 min. on 4K/60P mode, approx. 30 min. on 4K/30P mode. So we are expecting that the future Fyhi X-H2 camera will allow you to record 4K 60p videos for 30min with blazing fast Hybrid AF support.

4. Improved Eye detection AF in Fuji X-H2

It’s bit logical to expect the introduction even a bit more better eye detection AF as we have seen in the Fuji X-T3 camera. Fuji X-H1 doesn’t have any eye AF / tracking function.

5. Better Noise Control in Video Upto 2 Stops

With the introduction of new Noise reduction process with the Fuji X-T3 camera and new “4K interframe NR”. We will see reduced noise at ISO 12800 by the equivalent of approx 2 Stops.

Latest generation of Quad core  Fuji X-Processor carries newly developed noise reduction algorithms for Still as well as Video modes. Let’s talk about the video part here, Fuji improved the Noise reduction in video mode by improving the noise identifying accuracy in NR algorithm.

6. Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG)

Hybrid Log Gamma isn’t even available in Fuji X-T3 right now, at the time I am writing this article. But fuji do promised us to add HLG in Fuji X-T3 via a firmware update in near future. So again, it not too much to expect the presence of Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG) in Fuji X-H2 at the time if announcement.
