New release 13th August
1

Today I was in a local camera store and one of the salespeople said they were told a “big” Fujifilm release would be announced on 13th August, but didn’t have any more information.

Any ideas what is expected to be announced next? No camera that I would describe as “big” releases are expected to be updated soon, except maybe Xpro3. All I can think of is a big tele lens.

Re: New release 13th August

If there is a new release from Fuji on 13th of august it would be on fujirumors.com. But there isnt anything, so be prepared for disappointment.

I’ll give it another couple days before being disappointed

$1 hot dog night at the Blue Jays game is a pretty darn good consolation if there are no fuji releases that day.

Well, Fuji Rumors shot that one down.

Regardless of timelines, am I right in thinking the Xpro3 is the next higher end camera expected to be announced?

I am waiting on the X-Pro3 - not for a current need but for curiosity.

I am waiting on the new lens roadmap, since most has been executed - would love to see more fast primes (f1.4). The 18 f1.4 would make my XP2 a Leica Q-killer. A 14mm f1.4 would be something I would collect all my money for. Or a 70mm f1.4, a portrait cream machine.

Come on, Fuji guys, tell us your plans!

I still want to see the 33 f/1.0

I am a bit torn on whether I want the XH1...or wait a bit for the X-Pro3.  I will be selling my Nikon Z7 as while it is a superb camera, I just prefer the feel of Fuji gear.

The 33/1 is apparently HUGE and not very practical, imo.

The 33 is not for me. Regarding XH1 and X-Pro... totally different shoting experience. Had both but sold the XH1. A great camera, but feels like my old D300...

Prototypes have been shown, its about the size of the 90 f2. I still think making that lens is a mistake. It wont help the X system because its just Fuji flexing its muscles. Its huge, and its gonna be really expensive (2k+), very few people will buy it. If its less than 2k it wont be sharp wide open. And no one buys a f1.0 lens which has to be stopped down to 1.4. Making it 1.2 wouldnt make a huge difference in background blur, but it would be much smaller and a lot less expensive.

Looks like your “story” made the Fuji Rumors news:

”A dpr forum member has been told by a camera store owner that a Fujifilm sales person told them there will be a big Fujifilm release on August 13.

But all I can tell you is that no X/GFX gear will be announced on August 13.”

After all is said and done and your photo is hanging on the wall, no one is going to know or care what camera, lens, or what post processing you used. All they care about is if the image moves them.
I’m not hung up on the Bokeh fad because I’m too busy chasing shadows.

If this is the garbage that Fujirumours quotes, they are obviously a waste of time.  Some clerk in a camera store...LMAO.  Even I have better connections than that

Hi The Davinator,

Fujirumors never said there's any release on August 13th. In fact they were contradicting the story which started by the OP of this thread (SnipSnap.) The latter is the one that wrote that claim based on a statement from a salesperson he met.

Perhaps you didn't read the post closely enough. Fujirumors was refuting the rumor, not repeating it. Regardless, I would never take their rumors as golden, However, I will also observe that he seems to have been right a lot more than wrong over the years. Like any rumor, what he writes should be taken with a grain of salt... but I might suggest that the term "garbage" might be a little extreme here.

+1 for the 70mm “cream machine” 👌
