Many imaging companies over the last 6 months have decided to go down the road of ‘pre releasing’ products before their official launch. Leaking images, supplying teaser photos or even creating a mini video series are all the hype at the moment, it seems companies will do anything to get their fans interested. A good example of this would be the recent launch of the Nikon DF camera where we saw a spate of videos portraying pure photography.
Not to be out done, Fujifilm have entered their pre release into the game with the recent X Series website appearance of the picture shown below. There has been quite a bit of speculation and rumour surrounding the model number and specifications, which will all be revealed on January 28th 2014.
In the mean time I conducted a Google+ Hangout to hear what photographers around the world first thought of the camera based on rumours and this teaser photo. The photographers present in the hangout were: Andre Appel, Paul Pichugin, Matthew Maddock, Peter Coe, Ugo Cei, Andrew Newlun and yours truly.
It’s our hope to continually share our imaging knowledge and experience for free. To support us in this effort please consider making your next purchase through our partner Amazon. The price will stay the same for you, but a small commission is attributed back to all of the contributors at F Stop Lounge.
Thanks in advance for showing your support and we wish you all the best in your photographic journey.
