A Fujifilm X-E3 or X-E2s mirrorless camera is rumored to be in development and to be released on the market at some point in the future.
The beginning of 2015 brought us the first Fujifilm X-E3 rumors, stating that the X-mount mirrorless camera is in the works. Nevertheless, a different source contradicted these gossips shortly thereafter.
It was said that the X-E2 might never get a replacement as there is no need for it. Such statement was reinforced by the X-T10 rumors, a camera which eventually became official.
In the digital imaging industry, anything can change fast. This time, it looks like a reliable source, who has provided accurate details on previous occasions, has revealed that the Fujifilm X-E3 is real and that there are plans to make it available for purchase.
Fujifilm X-E3 or X-E2s rumored to succeed the X-E2
Although the X-T10 is a nifty camera, there is a growing feeling that Fuji fans will still demand a smaller and more affordable version of the X-Pro2. The flagship is coming sometime in 2016 and will most likely have a hybrid viewfinder, but some people will not mind using an X-mount camera with a fully electronic viewfinder.
In order to meet everybody’s demands, the Japanese company will probably add a new model to the X-E line-up, so that the X-E2 is not the last of this lineage.
For the time being, there are no specifications and no clear name. This is a sign that the shooter is still far away from being unveiled. Until then, the source said that it might be referred to as Fujifilm X-E3 or X-E2s.
This is not he first time the rumor mill has added an “s” next to the name of a Fuji-branded camera. A long time ago, it was believed that the company will launch a minor evolution of the X-Pro1 that would be called X-Pro1S.
The plans for an X-Pro1S were eventually scrapped, but we cannot say the same thing about the Fujifilm X-E3 or X-E2s at this point. Either way, it will be interesting to see what the company has in mind for this mid-level device.
It might even have the same sensor and image processor combination as the upcoming X-Pro2. Speaking of which, a trusted insider said that the recent 4K reports were false, meaning that the X-Pro2 will not be capable of recording 4K movies.
Do not jump to conclusions, yet, as there is plenty of time until both cameras become available. Also, if the X-Pro2 does not offer 4K, then it does not mean that the X-E2 replacement will not offer it. Stay close to our website for more information!
