Rumor: Expect the Fuji X-Pro2 In Early 2015

Fuji fans anxious for the arrival of the long-awaited X-Pro2 might only have a few more months left to wait. New rumors suggest that the followup to the popular X-Pro1 will arrive in early 2015.

Rumor: Fujifilm X-Pro2 May Arrive in June Sporting Dual Processors

The popular Fujifilm X-Pro1 came out over a year ago, meaning that rumors of a replacement are starting to pick up some serious speed. According to Nippon Magazine, the company has three new cameras in the works for this year, with release dates ranging from this month to September, and one of those cameras is the X-Pro2.

Speed Graphic 4×5 Converted Into a Fuji X Mirrorless Camera

Photographer Bryce Hoeper wants to become the Dr. Frankenstein of the camera world. Back in 2011, his experiments with mounting a 102-year-old lens to a Canon DSLR were widely shared across the Web. About a month ago, he created another cam-monster that combines old and new: he combined an old Speed Graphic 4x5 large format camera with a modern Fujifilm X-Pro1 mirrorless camera.

Hands-on with the Fujifilm X-E1: Sleek, Small, and Very Solid All Around

We had a chance to play around with the new Fujifilm X-E1 at Photokina 2012, at a meeting attended by people who were the brains and hands behind the camera. Announced back on September 6, the X-E1 is the more affordable counterpart to the well-regarded X-Pro1. It's an interchangeable lens mirrorless camera with the same beastly APS-C sensor, shedding 30% in size, 21% in weight, the fancy hybrid viewfinder in favor of an all-electronic one, and 41% in price (from $1,700 to $1,000).

Fujifilm May Already Be Working on a Full Frame Camera for the X-Series Lineup

There are currently two interchangeable-lens rangefinder-esque cameras in Fujifilm's X-Series lineup: the X-Pro1 and the X-E1, both of which contain APS-C sensors. Owners are gushing over the cameras, which are actually quite similar aside from the viewfinders (hybrid vs. electronic only). They feature sleek, retro designs that are very similar to Leica's classic M-line of rangefinders. A common sentiment that I've heard is that the X-Series would be absolutely perfect if the company simply introduced a full frame body.

That time might not be too far off.

Fujifilm Unveils New Firmware for the X-Pro1 That Makes Autofocus Snappier

In addition to the new X-E1 announced this morning, Fujifilm has also unveiled its upcoming version 2.0 of its X-Pro1 firmware. Autofocus has been a much-griped-about feature of the X-Pro1 (and the X100, for that matter), and the new firmware addresses that issue by improving the AF capabilities of the camera in different ways.

Fuji Announces the X-E1, the Smaller and Cheaper 16.3MP Sibling of the X-Pro1

Fuji has announced its new, much leaked, X-E1 mirrorless camera. It features the same high-quality CMOS sensor as the X-Pro1, but packs it into a smaller and lighter body for increased portability. Specs include a 16.3 megapixel APS-C sensor, a 2.8-inch LCD, a pop-up flash, ISO of 200-6400 (expandable to 100-25600), shutter lag of just 0.05 seconds, focusing speed of up to 0.1 seconds, and RAW and built-in RAW conversion.

Fujifilm Primed to Announce Low and High-End X Models at Photokina

Photokina is only a couple of months away, and it looks like Canon and Nikon won't be the only ones making major announcements and shaking up the camera market. According to Fuji Rumors, Fujifilm -- initially reported to have a cheaper X-Model camera in the works -- will actually be announcing two new models, one low-end and one high-end.

Fujifilm Reveals X-Pro1 Lens Roadmap, to Introduce Zoom Lenses This Fall

If you're the owner of a Fujifilm X-Pro1 and you've been yearning for a little bit of zoom capability out of your lenses, then it looks like relief isn't far off. A couple of days ago Fujifilm announced the lens roadmap for the X-Pro1 (seen above), which shows that we'll be seeing a few zoom lenses added to the family, one of which will be here as early as this Fall.
