UPDATED-> Fuji employees denies Fuji making m43 camera.

I received an email from an anonymous sender. He had a small talk with a Fuji employee and the Fuji man denied that they will release a m43 camera soon.
I haven’t classified this as rumor. Fuji employee will never tell you when and if a new camera is coming!

I post you the email text:
I was just at the Henry’s photographic show in Toronto today and was speaking with one of the employees at the Fuji booth. I asked him about Fuji making a m43 camera and he said that they are part of the consortium (which we already know), but he said that there is no product ready or even near ready at this time. Does not sound like Fuji will have anything soon for m43; assuming his info. is correct.

I also spoke with someone at the Sony booth and they said that a major announcement to the product line will be made in 3 months. They would not confirm or deny if it would be a mirrorless, interchangable lens camera.

Thanks anonymous sender!

UPDATE: Our trusted sources still do confirm Fuji will join MicroFourThirds (probably with the release of a new camera by early 2010).

(FT3) Updated-> New Fuji organic sensor?

We already told you about rumors saying Fuji will join the MicroFourThirds system. Now it seems that Fuji is working on a completely new organic sensor. Image-sensor-world.com says that “Potentially, multi-layered organic sensors can over-perform BSI (Bayer Sensor) by a big margin. Their biggest advantage is that the dye absorption could be tuned to have very high QE in each of three colors, crosstalk can be minimized and each pixel location can detect and process all three color signals. Bayer sensors, on the other hand, get only one color per pixel, effectively discarding 2/3 of the incoming signal.

MuTaka also adds “As far as I understood it, Fuji had succeeded in producing a color picture from the organic sensor. Their test sensor was 1/15″ with a 3 micron pixel. The effective image 320*240 pixels. QE is 65%, and with antireflective film surpaces 80%. For a 550nm wave length
Fuji design is not sensitive to IR so doesn’t need IR cut filter.
The main chalenge is stacking the three layers and the electrodes together. Fuji “needs to make the improvement to the nanometer stamping installment
” .

(FT5) Fuji joins micro4/3! ….and also “classic” 4/3?

One of our best sources contacted me last night. Here the Text:

I saw the 43Rumors Fuji news. I checked the rumor,
and it is a true news ,not a rumor!
” and “I heart someone saying Fuji could also join 43 System…not only M43.

This sources has always been right! I have no doubt anymore! Fuji will join MicroFourThirds. As always we are working to get more info. As soon as we have something we will post it :)

(FT2) (UPDATED) HOT! First FAKE image of the Fuji Micro-S10EXR ;)

f49ad57ec4141bc0I was told that this image is a fake . One of my sources send me the link to a chinese forum. The camera will use a 12 Megapixel EXR sensor. Remember the real camera should look something in between the and the .
