Fuji X-H2 is definitely not coming in 2020…but will it really come at all?

The Fuji X-H1 is the only Fuji APS-C camera with on sensor stabilization yet and it’s now officially marked as discontinued. Fujirumors reports that Fuji will definitely not announce anew X-H2 in 2020 and at this  point my  guess is that there won’t be a successor at all.

Make it simple Fuji and just give us the perfect X-T4 with ons ensor stabilization  :)

Fuji X-T4 might be the jack of all trades: Has IBIS and will be launched by end 2020?

One camera to rule them all? This is what the Fuji X-T4 might will become! According to latest (and yet to be verified) rumors the specs will be:

  • X-T4 with IBIS
  • expect a T4 about 1/3 of an inch thicker, and about 5-6oz heavier
  • On a good note expect 6k60 and 10bit internal
  • anamorphic ratio
  • fully articulating flippy…essentially an S1H but APSc with Fuji color and obviously much smaller
  • release end of 2020

Oh yes that would be crazy! Canon patented 18mm f/1.0 and 25mm f/1.2 RF lens designs!

Oh yes folks, Canon is really going crazy with the super fast RF lenses. There is a brand newly published japanese patent describing the specs of  new f/1.0 and f/1.2 RF lenses:

18mm f/1.2 lens specs:
Focal length: 18.51 mm
F no: 1.24
ω : 49.45
Image height: 21.64 mm
Lens length: 129.00 mm
Back focus: 16.40 mm

25mm f/1.2 lens specs:
Focal length: 24.59 mm
F no: 1.24
ω : 41.35
Image height: 21.64 mm
Lens length: 129.01 mm
Back focus: 13.57 mm

18mm f/1.0 lens specs:
Focal length: 18.50 mm
F no: 1.03
ω : 49.47
Image height: 21.64 mm
Lens length: 150.00 mm
Back focus: 4.99 mm

Now we all know the patent world  is a parallel universe of possibilities that might not be realized in our simple 11 dimensional universe (according to string theory). And particularly  this 18mm f/1.0 lens really sounds out of this world!  If they make it I will jump for joy naked in front of the  Canon Tokyo headquarters! And  that might be a good reason for them to not make it at all :)

Canon Q3 operating profit in the imaging business drops 56,8% compared to last year!

Canon published the Q3 financial results and damn they are bleeding out :(

Compared to  Q3 2018  their net profit dropped by 56,8%! Sales dropped  by  13,9%. They now changed the  2019  sales forecast and expect full  year profit to drop by 59,9%. Honestly I didn’t  expect  that and it looks like Canon and Olympus are doing worse than other camera companies now…
