Fujifilm is set to elevate the X100 series with the upcoming X100VI, the camera is expected around February 20th.
The upcoming X100VI looks to take everything up a notch with some major rumored upgrades under the hood. Headlining the specs is a new 40MP APS-C sensor, which would be the same high-resolution chip found in the Fujifilm X-H2 camera. Paired with the latest generation X-Processor 5 chip, we can expect stunning levels of detail along with improved noise control at higher ISOs.
The hybrid viewfinder will allegedly receive an upgrade to 3.69 million dots resolution, providing an extremely sharp and detailed electronic view for critical manual focusing applications. Autofocus performance also looks to make a big leap forward thanks to advanced subject detection algorithms that can recognize animals, birds, vehicles, and people.
On the video side, the X100VI topped out at 4K/30p but the VI may offer 6.2K recording along with 4K up to 60fps. This would make the new model much more viable as a video camera for vlogging and travel documentaries.
Fujifilm announced the launch of “Fujifilm XApp”, a new app for use with the GFX / X Series of digital cameras. The app will be released for download on May 25, 2023.
FUJIFILM already has a camera remote app on the market, but some were complaining about limited functionality including connectivity issues between their FUJIFILM cameras and smart devices.
The new XApp is addressing exactly those issues. FUJIFILM is advertising the new XApp with seamless, quicker connectivity.
The second new feature of the XApp is that you can transfer images while the camera is still recording or even when it is completely powered off. The App also comes with a new high-contrast design in black and white for better visibility. When you connect your camera via Bluetooth, you have a live view function and can control start/stop recording next to your camera settings, like aperture, ISO, and shutter speed.

Fujifilm will officially announce Fujifilm X-S20 and XF 8mm F3.5 Lens at “X Summit BKK 2023″ on May 24, 2023. Here are the rumored price info and updated specs that have been leaked on the web.
Fujifilm X-S20: $1,299
Fujifilm XF 8mm F3.5 R WR Lens: $799
Fujifilm X-S10 is now for $999, so Fujifilm X-S20 is a 30% price more expensive than Fujifilm X-S10. The price of the X-S20 seems to be significantly higher than the X-S10, but it may be unavoidable because the prices of cameras from other companies have also been raised.
The upcoming Fujifilm X-S20 mirrorless camera and XF 8mm F3.5 R WR lens are both expected to be announced at “X Summit BKK 2023” on May 24, 2023.
The Fujifilm X-S20 appears to have the same sensor as its predecessor, the X-S10. However, with the 6K30p and 4K60p features that are said to include on the video side, the X-S20 promises to be much more attractive for people who use video frequently. With the replacement of the image processing engine, it promises lightning fast and sharp focusing with every shot, instilling hope for a significant improvement in autofocus performance.
The Fujifilm X-S20 will be equipped with the mighty X-Processor 5 Image Processor, ensuring that every detail of your captures is flawlessly processed, allowing your creativity to soar to new heights. Before the X-S20 announcement, we can also compare it to its sibling, the X-H2, which has the same powerful X-Processor 5. Supports up to a mind-blowing 8K 30p video resolution. As a result, it’s natural to ponder the possibilities of the X-S20. Considering its prowess, we can expect the X-S20 to push the boundaries even further and grace us with its ability to shoot stunning 6K 30p videos.
