Fujifilm is rumored to announce the X200 camera in the second half of 2016. First specs of the X-series compact model has been leaked online.
According to latest Fuji rumors, the upcoming digital compact model will employ a 24-megapixel APS-C sensor. It looks like the same sensor found in the X-Pro2 mirrorless shooter.
Back in 2014, Fujifilm X200 has been mentioned within the rumor mill to replace the X100S. But X shooters met the X100S successor with X100T at the Photokina 2014 event. So this year Fuji is considering on the move to launch a new X100-series model probably be called Fuji X200.
Fujifilm X200 Specs Leaked, Coming at Photokina 2016
Fuji has been busy in the beginning of 2016. The company announced the X-Pro2 and X-E2S mirrorless cameras, as well as the X70 compact shooter. So there is a strong chance that the next product announcement from Fuji will be the X200. It is rumored for the Photokina 2016 event in September.
The new X100-series model is expected to have several improvements. Those are the new 24-megapixel APS-c sized image sensor, an improved version of viewfinder with a quicker refresh rate for the electronic viewfinder.
If true the big change will be the optic of the camera. It will feature a new bright 28mm equivalent lens which is expected to be the one on the new Fuji X70 camera. It will actually be a 18.5mm f/2.8 lens (28mm Equiv.).
- 24MP sensor of the X-Pro2 (and therefore also faster AF)
- A new bright 28mm lens (also the Fujifilm X70 features a 28mm lens)
- Enhanced hybrid viewfinder with better EVF refresh rate
- Digital converter 35/50
- Tilt screen
The Fujifilm X100T features a 16.3-megapixel X-Trans CMOS II sensor with on-chip phase detection. It comes with a 23mm f/2 lens and a 3-inch 1.04-million-dot monitor. The fixed-lens camera has seven customisable function buttons, raw shooting capability and a top sensitivity setting of ISO 51,200.
Alongside the Fujifilm X200 digital compact camera, the company is rumored to announce a new XF 33mm f/1.0 and XF 200mm f/2 prime lens for Photokina 2016.
We have to underline that both lenses are on Fuji’s unofficial roadmap which means that the company may change their plans for future products.
