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.

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
