New X-Series Camera Teased By Fuji, Official Announcement Coming Soon

By Anthony Thurston on January 20th 2014

It appears that a new Fuji X-Series camera is coming down the pipe, and it will be officially announced at the end of this month, according to a teaser released by Fuji.

Fuji X-Series Teaser

As you can see above, the tease is not much more than the top half of the new camera, with an X and the date of January 28th. Assuming they do not mean Jan 28th of next year, it is safe to assume that this new X-Series camera will be announced 8 days from now.

According to the Fuji rumor mill, this is likely the Fuji X-T1, a long rumored camera that will likely boast an 18mp X-trans sensor II, and 8fps burst shooting while coming in around $1800 when it hits stores. Say what you will about rumors, but in my experience when they get as far along as the X-T1‘s, are they are usually right. I guess we will see how right the rumors are next week…

    I love the x series. I think it definitely changed the game, and filled a much needed gap in the camera market. I still shoot with my 5DIII for payed gigs, but every personal photo I have taken in the last 7 months has been with my x100s.

    I love the Fuji X-100s. I was able to go to Europe for two 10-day trips with just this camera, a carry-on sized backpack and a tripod because of its small size and image quality. I have since been on several shorter national park camping trips with the Fuji X-100s and my dSLS, but I still end up liking more photos taken with Fuji than dSLS, which stayed in the bag most of the time.

    I think Fujifilm is changing the marketplace and if this camera is something as good or even better than the ones from the X series, Canon and Nikon are in big trouble!

    I used to use the Canon 5D mark 2. I changed it for the Nikon D800 when it came out. Last year I got the Fujifilm X-E2 only to be a small, lightweight camera for traveling proposes. After using it for a couple times, I am leaving now my D800 in the bag and I am using my Fujifilm 70% of the time! The only reason I still have my D800 is because the lens selection I have from Nikon. As soon as Fujifilm have the same selection I need, I will move 100% to Fujifilm.

      I am not a huge fan of the tease, announce, release model that companies are using now. But, it gets the butts in the seats so to speak, so I don’t think its going anywhere.
