Fujifilm is now believed to announce the X100s replacement, called X100T, on September 10 and a trusted source is claiming that the compact camera will feature a 16-megapixel sensor instead of a 24-megapixel version, as previously reported.
The Photokina 2014 event will be packed with new cameras and lenses, as well as other products related to the digital imaging world. Among the plethora of devices, the attendees will be able to experience Fujifilm’s latest flagship compact camera, which is poised to replace the X100s, named X100T.
As we are getting closer to the trade fair taking place in Cologne, Germany, more Fujifilm X100T rumors have surfaced on the web. It is now said that the shooter will actually come packed with a 16-megapixel sensor and that it will be announced officially on September 10.
Newest Fujifilm X100T rumors point at 16-megapixel sensor, not at a 24-megapixel one
The latest information regarding the image sensor of the X100T comes from one of FujiRumors‘ very trusted sources. However, it may not be the one that the company’s fans want to hear, as the compact camera will sport a 16-megapixel sensor instead of a 24-megapixel version, as initially rumored.
Fuji itself has said that it is working on high-resolution cameras that will be on-display at Photokina 2014. Unfortunately, 16MP does not fall into this category, when compared to what we can find in other cameras, so it remains to be seen whether the trusted source is right or not.
The good thing is that other details have not been contradicted. This means that the compact shooter is still expected to sport a tilting screen on the back, an electronic viewfinder instead of a hybrid one, a 23mm lens, and a very quick autofocus system.
By the looks of it, the Fuji X100T will not represent a major improvement over the X100s, a camera that can be purchased for about $1,300 at Amazon.

The same source has also had something to say about the announcement date of the Fujifilm X100T. The compact camera will become official on September 10, one day before Nikon introduces its D750 full frame DSLR.
Now there are no doubts that the Japan-based company is planning to introduce this device after Photokina 2014. The X100s successor will definitely be present at the biggest digital imaging trade fair in the world.
The same event will include the unveiling of a few X-mount lenses and the announcement of the development of the X-Pro2. Stick with us, we will share more details as soon as we grab them!
