I think the speed with which Fuji is rattling out new models will cause some people (myself included) to become anxious about the speed of obsolescence. Happy with my X-Pro2, and would prefer Fuji to show confidence in that, rather than racing to bin it in favour of the next incremental improvement.

I like Fujifilm (over other APS_C Systems) because of the lenses. I switched from Canon EOS D60; now mirrorless has the other advantage of doing eye recognition autofocus (eye AF). I am no pro, but an enthusiast (amateur). My current cam is the X-E1 for fun and the X-T2 for a little more serious shootings.

What's on my wish list?

1. A bigger grip with a bigger battery inside would be welcome. Of course, I do see other people who don't shoot 1.000 pictures a day on a city trip to London or Paris. These people want to keep the "film camera style" without an extending grip.

2. More film simulations - and film simulations that can be rendered to match any other film - would be appreciated, too. I made the disclaimer I switched from Canon; and on Canon cameras you can use 6 or 7 build-in / fixed "picture styles" plus 3 more of your own liking. And the Canon community build their own picture styles which are countless. (I myself rendered some, using the picture style editor.) Why not implement this alike in Fuji cameras?

3. Whenever I switch from studio shooting - owning a small own photo studio and shooting for friends exclusively - or flash shooting - I mean "off camera flash shooting", e.g. for photographing items I want to sell on the local community, like ebay, on a private basis - I feel there are so many adjustments to be made from auto iso to manual iso, auto shutter speed to manual shutter speed 1/125 or 1/160, white balance, electronic shutter to mechanical shutter, automatic viewfinder brightness film simulation; and maybe some more. So what about user customizable modes U1, U2, U3? I can figure out this point is not easily to be implemented on a camera with dedicated wheels for aperture, iso, and shutter speed. So...

... what about combining points 1 & 3 in another camera called X-H2 or - because it's too late now - call it X-H3? This would give a somewhat distinctive style to the H-series, which has little unique selling propositions when the X-T4 comes with IBIS.

Just my 2 cents and on the H-series instead of T-series. Okay but:

Thank you, Fujifilm, for listening!

STABILIZATION !!!  I have the 90mm with my T1 and T30 and no image stabilization BIG mistake from Fuji, hope the T4 has it otherwise I'm switching back to Sony which has everything in a smaller package. Was waiting for the Pro3 but Fuji screwed it with the stupid display.

I'm not concerned about how fast new models are coming out from Fuji, as I'm very pleased with my current Fuji kit. They are getting th job done for me and done well!

If your current camera does everything you want it to do for you, it's not obsolete even if Fujifilm comes out with the X-Pro7 or X-T7. Newer cameras always have more and more features that most of us don't need and don't use, especially when we only shoot still photographs.

    • Thank you for checking, I have just observed the same behavior with the 35mm f/2 - X-S10 with v2.10 chooses 1/100s. I guess I will use the specific minimum shutter speed or simply force myself to use the M mode more. 
    • Can I ask, what type of audio are you looking to capture?
    • Hi All, This is my first post. Hope this hasn't been covered before. I have something I'm trying to figure out on my x100v. I typically have my camera in natural live view with "Preview Exposure" off because I don't like seeing my exposure settings reflected in the image in the EVF. However, it seems that, in this setup, the live histogram no longer adjusts based on my exposure settings... Is there any way to get the histogram to show results based on what the resulting image will be without having the EVF brighten/darken based on exposure settings? With "preview exposure" on, I find it hard to compose-- especially in certain situations when trying to protect the HL's. Thanks very much! Collin
    • Hi all,Second post here would appreciate the input. I just purchased an X-T3 and X-H1.The EVFs on paper are meant to be the same with same refresh rates when in boost mode.The sizes are also meant to be almost exactly the same at 0.50 inches X-T3 and 0.48 inches X-H1 with the same resolution.However the X-H1 EVF feels smaller (bigger black border around the edges) and not as clear. It also gives me eye strain after just a few minutes. (I have adjusted diopter). It feels like its further away if that makes sense?Has anyone else noticed a difference between the EVFs when using them side by side because on paper they are meant to be the same. Perhaps its just this particular X-H1.Thanks,
    • I must have activated the wrong setting because now when I switch to the OVF the white windows stays for a second and then completely disappears. Any idea how to get it back? Thank you all so much. 🙂
