FUJIFILM Introduces New X-E1 Interchangeable Lens Digital Camera


FUJIFILM today introduced its second compact system camera of this year - the FUJIFILM X-E1 - an interchangeable lens camera system.

The FUJIFILM X-E1 follows in the tradition of the FUJIFILM X-Pro1 and utilizes the same proprietary 16.3 Megapixel APS-C X-Trans CMOS sensor and the same X-Mount for use with FUJINON XF lenses, all in a body that is 30% smaller than the FUJIFILM X-Pro.

The camera will be available in two classic designs: a two-tone black and silver, and a solid black. Both versions of the X-E1 will also ship as kits with the XF18mm-55mm (27-84mm) F2.8-4 lens in November 2012.

Fujifilm claims that its X-Trans CMOS sensor is capable of delivering resolution that is superior to other APS-C sensors, and equal to even some full frame sensors found in DSLR cameras.

The FUJIFILM X-E1?s color filter array can effectively minimize moire and false color without the need for an optical low pass filter.

Specifically designed to take advantage of the camera?s mirrorless design, the X-Mount has a short flange back distance of just 17.7mm made possible by designing the mount ring as thin as 2.5mm. This means the rear lens elements are as close as possible to the sensor, reducing the back focus distance of each lens to the minimum possible, thus achieving high resolution from edge to edge.

The FUJIFILM X-E1 camera comes equipped with a high definition, high luminance OLED electronic viewfinder with a resolution of 2.36 million dots that is one of the highest resolutions available on an EVF-equipped digital camera today(1). The natural, bright viewfinder offers a horizontal field of view of 25-degrees, allowing users to scan the entire scene quickly and easily.

Premium quality design and portability

Made in Japan, the X-E1 exudes precision, elegance and premium quality that can be seen from each of its components. The top and front covers are made from die-cast magnesium for a solid, yet functional design. At roughly the same size as the FUJIFILM X100, the X-E1 is refreshingly compact and lightweight (12.35oz(2)). Featuring a rubber grip for additional stability, and with the X-Mount positioned centrally on the camera, the X-E1 is perfectly-balanced.

Expanding the FUJINON XF lens lineup: New XF14mm (21mm) F2.8 single focal length lens and XF18mm-55mm (27-84mm) F2.8-4 lens

The FUJIFILM X-E1 pairs with the XF18mm-55mm (27-84mm) F2.8-4 lens to deliver super-fast focusing speeds. Contrast Detection in the X-E1 brings your subject into focus in as little as 0.1 seconds.

The all-glass lens structure consists of 14 elements in 10 groups, including 3 aspherical lenses and 1 extra low dispersion element, as well as a seven-blade rounded diaphragm. This zoom lens covers a broad range of frequently-used focal lengths from 18mm in wide angle to 55mm mid telephoto to capture everything from landscapes to street photography.

At F2.8-4 wide open, this lens is perfect for low-light photography or scenes beckoning a beautiful bokeh effect. Advanced optical and mechanical designs are optimized to keep the lens compact, while maintaining a physical aperture ring so that users can make fluid adjustments. The lens also features OIS to provide image stabilization equivalent to 4 stops, controlling the effect of camera shake.

The new FUJINON XF14mm (21mm) F2.8 single focal length lens offers an ultra wide angle that delivers high resolution from edge to edge. The new lens consists of 10 elements in 7 groups, including 2 aspheric and 3 extra low dispersion elements, and a seven-blade rounded diaphragm.

With its distance and depth of field scales on the barrel, the FUJINON XF14mm (21mm) F2.8 lens is suited for a range of shooting techniques. And with its F2.8 aperture, the lens performs beautifully in low-light shooting.

The X-E1 offers Fujifilm?s creative "Film Simulation Modes" to simulate the distinctive color palates of conventional photo film. Film Simulation Modes include "Velvia," "ASTIA," and "PROVIA," as well as two additional settings based on professional color negative films, PRO Neg.Std and PRO

Neg.Hi. The X-E1 also supports shooting Full HD movies (1920x1080) at 24fps. In addition, you can now use Monochrome or Film Simulation modes when video recording and even take advantage of the X-E1?s large sensor and bright XF lenses to capture movies.

- 16.3 megapixel APS-C X-Trans CMOS Sensor and EXR Processor Pro
