I am afraid that the X10-20-30 series was the least selling series of Fuji, the possibility that they will invest in a segment which has proven itself to be a non starter is very low.

well they made an x10 an x20 an x30 ..... who knows .... who knows the mind of fuji?

'

there making dslr style apsc    theyre making rangefinder styles to put leica to shame.... can you say medium format ....

hopefully theres a little love left 

 

honestly nikon and canon and sony and and panasonic  are making enthusiast compacts  with 1 inch sensors 

will they never make one ...?   well i think they will ...

 

. fuji makes cameras for enthusiasts

canon makes cameras  for the herd

nikon makes camera for the old school

panasonic makes cameras for the daring 

 

ony one of the above  isn't making 1 inch sensor cameras, but is the one  that should

it will go in the successor to the x30

I am afraid that wishful thinking is not a good advisor.

 

Sentimental reasons don’t inspire Fuji into camera making and certainly not into making cameras which are actually making them a loss ( which was the case with the series X-10-20-30 ).

 

Fuji is a company, with a large number of shareholders seeking to see a return over their investment, they make camera to sell them, if they don’t sell them they quickly re-thing their strategy. Pull models from the market ( as they did in a quick movement X-30 ) when they are not producing satisfactory sales.

 

The new camera which they “ announced” via the rumors, appears to be a tuned down version of the XA-3 the XA-10, in no way shape or form connected with the X-10-20-30 series.

 

http://www.fujirumor...reen-and-cheap/

 

They expect to sell this camera in the far east and especially in Thailand, its forerunners did very well there and very bad in the rest of the world.

 

Despite their good sales of the X-T2, overall the company sold less this last financial year than before. They are putting this into a perspective and saying that it has to do with a weak yen , which dos play a role.

 

But the reality is that there are not too many (aside from X-T2 buyers) who are buying new cameras or cameras “ tout court”. The whole of the photographic sector is in steady decline with the exception of the more “ professional” models. In particular the mirrorless generation has given new élan to the sector but  overall, photography is in a rough spot.

On cameras and where they are at now, careful very long video...

lots of good info , but i cannot believe  fuji will not have an enthusiast zoom compact with an evf.....its unthinkable to me 

 

my point isnt about sentimentality but rather a market segment fuji has yet to dive into that panny sony nikon and canon all explore

 

i inch compacts

 

fuji has distinguished itself in the enthusiast sector  part of that corporate mentality and direction is to serve one of the few remaining  categories of cameras ,.....the enthusiast zoom compact   ... i believe fuji will continue to offer a counterpoint to cameras like the sony i inch compacts , now in their 5th iteration

well they will do what they see fit but they have tried and failed  to cover that segment with 3 cameras in a row.

the only thing they did wrong was fail to monitize the  the x zooms  as well as hoped ... all the cameras were loved by all shooters wize enough to invest in one ,   the reviews were positive  .... even the first x10  orb issue was resolved by replacing  the sensor lens modules   no questions asked ... i would say it the best compact of its generation   despite sonys 1 inch sensor  with flimsy body  and shitty power zoom but greaat iq 

 

when was the last time apple nikon or canon went that far ,  or any distance to correct something without denials or even pressed by  lawsuits?

 

ive owned the x10 x20 and 2 x30s   gave the x10 away to a friend shooter  lost an x 30   currently own an x20 and x 30

its the best built compact out here with great build   a solis lens assembly   great  and fast optics  a 58 sq mm sensor that punches way above its size

 

the r and d is there   to make another    theyve had 3 iterations of the x 100  ....so theres that

I have owned the X10 and was happy with it.

 

I bought it from a young man who had bought it and hardly ever used it, he did everything with the phone. Sold to another young man whose mother came to pick it up and she said she didn’t understand why her son bought a camera since he had a phone.

 

The problem of these camera was precisely that they don’t really have a large customer’s base. That is why Fuji is no longer investing in them.

So the X-A10 appears to be the “ New” camera that was never rumored about before to be introduced in the latter part of 2016.

 

The reason why it wasn’t rumored was probably the fact that there would have been few prepared to listen. You know what they say: “ if a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?"

 

After all this appears to be just a tuned sown version of the X-A3 which is likely to be as close as identical to what the X-A2 was.

 

16Mp and no touch screen, flip up LCD for the indispensable selfie shooters among us!

 

Wow! The world was holding its breath for such a camera. Of course, if anything, this will be a commercial success in Thailand ( Where the X-A1 and 2 sold well) and where people might be seeking a cheaper camera than the X-A3 ( which, over here in the NL costs in Kit a respectable €649).

 

This camera too will be probably sold with the 16-50 and maybe the 50-230.

 

I don’t think that there would be many sold in the Western part of the world because it will be, as Yogi Berra said, Deja Vu all over again!
