FUJIFILM XF1 Combines Style With Quality


FUJIFILM on Monday launched the FUJIFILM XF1. Due to hit the market in November this year, the camera has been designed with attention to detail on appearance and accessibility.

Newly developed for the XF1, the wide-angle, f/1.8 FUJINON lens features a manual 4x optical zoom (25mm-100mm) operated by twisting the zoom ring. Its stylish body includes a 2/3-inch EXR-CMOS sensor and EXR Processor, which are user for FUJIFILM X10.

The camera featues an aluminum body while a synthetic leather covering reproduces the feel of genuine leather while ensuring a good grip.

The XF1's fast f/1.8 lens allows poorly-lit subjects to be photographed without raising sensitivity levels. The slim-line lens achieves its aperture of f/1.8 with a construction that features 7 lens elements in 6 groups (four aspherical and three extra low dispersion), the first with a highly variable profile and a high refractive index, and the second an aspherical element with an extremely high refractive index. All elements are subjected to FUJINON's unique Wide-band High Transmittance Electron Beam Coating process (developed for FUJINON broadcast-use lenses), reducing ghosting and flare.

The camera is also featuring an Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) mechanism that shifts one group of four lens elements to reduce blur, while avoiding color shading and lost resolution at the edges of the image. Other features include Macro photography at ranges as close as 3 cm, and also the opportunity to capture images using the "Bokeh" depth of field effect by taking advantage of the XF1's fast lens and six diaphragm blades.

Fujifilm's premium EXR Auto mode takes charge and selects the optimum settings (from 103 patterns according to the scene's demands), making high photo quality easy to achieve.

Adjustable sensor controls are still on offer for the more advanced photographer. The 2/3-inch, 12 million pixel EXR-CMOS sensor features Fujifilm's three switchable sensor modes (SN - high ISO and low noise, DR dynamic-range, and HR resolution) which can be selected according to the subject.

With its EXR-CMOS sensor and EXR processor, the XF1 camera offers fast Auto Focus. The speedy read time of the CMOS sensor, coupled with the high-speed EXR processor, accelerates all operations; quick response, start-up in just 0.55 seconds, focus acquisition in as little as 0.16 seconds, and minimum shot-to-shot time of just 0.8 seconds. Additionally, the EXR processor offers high-speed processing for HD movie recording and burst-mode photography.

The camera is equipped with a main command dial that simplifies the task of altering the shutter speed and aperture, while up to 6 frequently-used settings can be assigned to the Expanded-function button as desired. The camer's 3.0-inch/460K LCD monitor has a tempered Glass which protect from Scratch.

The XF1 also features a new "advanced filter" option; Pop color, Toy camera, Miniature, High-key, Dynamic tone, and six Partial color options (shoot in B&W plus one selective color: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple), and preview the effect of any of the filters on the LCD monitor.

The FUJIFILM XF1 will be available in October 2012 for $499.95 in black, tan and red.
