FUJIFILM Plans to Release New X Mount Cameras in May 2022 during X-Summit


FUJIFILM Plans to Release New X Mount Cameras in May 2022 during X-Summit

FUJIFILM will announce new 5th generation X series cameras during the X-summit in May 2022. The announcement is a part of FUJIFILM’s celebration of 10 years of X mount standard which started with the X-Pro1 announcement in January 2012.

A few days ago FUJIFILM released a video where one of the company’s managers, Yuji Igarashi, talks about the news and plans for FUJIFILM for 2022. In the 6-minute long video, he speaks about many topics including both the GFX and X series of cameras, FUJIFILM video projects, hashtag campaigns, and so on. The most interesting information for me concerns the X mount system and the upcoming X-Summit which will bring new cameras.

10 years of FUJIFILM X mount system

On the 9th of January 2012, FUJIFILM announced its first interchangeable-lens mirrorless camera X-Pro1 along with three X mount lenses. Since then, the X mount family grew significantly both in camera bodies and lenses. The company has so far introduced close to 30 X series camera bodies and 40 lenses for the system.

Therefore, this year marks the 10th anniversary of the X mount series and FUJIFILM is planning on celebrating in many ways. One of them is introducing new cameras to the X series family in May during the annual X-Summit.

New FUJIFILM models in May

At the moment, FUJIFILM did not disclose which models will be introduced in May and we don’t even know how many cameras the company will release. The only piece of information we have right now is that there will be new “5th generation X series cameras”. Yuji Igarashi also said that the new cameras will be a further evolution of the X series based on the expertise of the past 10 years.

We can only speculate which cameras the Japanese company will introduce. The current filmmaking flagship of the whole X series – the FUJIFILM X-T4 has been announced almost two years ago in February 2020 (check our review here), the small-sized FUJIFILM X-S10 followed in October 2020 (check our review here). Then there is the FUJIFILM X-H1 which has already been around since February 2018 (check our review here). Any of these cameras or any of the other photographers-oriented X series bodies could get a successor. In my opinion, FUJIFILM might finally jump on the 8K train with one of the bodies that will be announced in May. What do you think?
