new fuji camera
Jan 14, 2004

I just talk to a fuji tech here in the netherlands. He was sure about two things:

1- the new camera will not be ff. This because " the amount of CCD chips that are discarded because of faults is to high" This means with a ff the chances of faulty chips would be even higher. He mentioned (I was very surprised) that they needed to construct dozens of chips in order to have a good one.....

2- Contrary to Cannon (D300) and Nikon (d70 , i believe), they will have a metal body and no longer a cheap body made from plastic. In otherwords they will be producing a camera for the prof market.

When asked for a date, he said; 3-4 months.

I realise that this again is only one persons views and can not be attributed to fuji directly, though he seemed to be sure of him self.
