Fujifilm has unveiled a trio of new cameras - X-Pro2, X-E2S, X70 - plus the rugged and compact FinePix XP90. The successor of the X-Pro1, the new X-Pro2 is a premium mirrorless camera, which boasts a Hybrid Viewfinder capable of instantly switching between optical and electronic finders, plus an updated image sensor and processor.
The camera uses a new 24.3MP X-Trans CMOS III sensor plus the X Processor Pro image processing engine to offer improved
start-up time and high-speed continuous shooting speeds, faster autofocus, lower noise and both tonal and color reproduction that surpasses the previous EXR Processor II.
The camera’s autofocus locks on subjects in 0.08 seconds and continuous shooting is a speedy 8 frames per second (compared to 3 fps on X-Pro1). The X-Pro2’s ISO is 100-51200.
A faster mechanical shutter gives extra flexibility for aperture selections in bright conditions or when shooting with flash outdoors during the day. In addition, while noise and vibration levels typically increase with faster shutter speeds, the X-Pro2 is quieter and vibrates less compared to conventional models thanks to the optimization of key controls and parts.
The camera’s body is dust and splash-resistant with 61 points of weather sealing; it’s also freeze-resistant up to 14 degrees Fahrenheit.
And if you love shooting timelapses, the built-in interval timer can shoot up to 999 frames.
The hybrid optical/electronic viewfinder is still a key Fujifilm differentiator, but now the electronic viewfinder’s resolution is a higher 2.36 million dots versus the X-Pro1's 1.44 million dots resolution.
The camera’s 3-inch screen is also sharper with a 1.62-million dot resolution. In addition, the camera features two SD card slots, one of which is compatible with the UHS-II Standards, and built-in Wi-Fi.
The X-Pro2 doesn’t shoot 4K video - it will record full HD video at 1080p resolution at up to 60 fps (at a bit rate of 36Mbps).
The X-Pro2 will cost $1,699.95 for just the body and will be available in February.
At $699.95 for the body, the X-E2S is less than half the cost of the X-Pro2; a kit package with the camera and an XF18-55mm f/2.8-4 LM OIS lens will cost $999.95.
The X-E2S comes with a 16.3-megapixel APS-C X-Trans CMOS II sensor, a 49-point single focus mode, 77-point wide-tracking mode for freezing quick moving subjects, and ISO sensitivity up to 51200. On the back is a 3-inch screen with 104K dot resolution.
Like the X-Pro2, the X-E2S records 1080p full HD video at up to 60 fps, built-in interval timer and Wi-Fi.
The $699.95 X70 is a fixed-lens camera. It has a 16.3-megapixel APS-C X-Trans CMOS II sensor and a fixed 18.5mm lens with f/2.8 aperture, and ISO sensitivity up to 51200.
It packs all of the X-E2S’s features including 1080p/60fps video recording, interval timer and Wi-Fi. The 3-inch screen, however, is a touchscreen, and tilts 180-degrees.
Both the E-2S and X70 will also be available in February.
Featuring four rugged protection features, Fujifilm's FinePix XP90 camera is ideal for holidays and outdoor leisure activities. Weighing just 203g, the XP90's compact and lightweight body also comes equipped with a high definition FUJINON lens.
The FinePix XP90 complies with IP68 standards. This means it is waterproof to 50ft/15m, can withstand a drop of up to 5.8ft/1.75m, will still operate in temperatures as low as 14°F/-10°C and is dustproof to prevent the intrusion of dust or sand.
The XP90 uses a 1/2.3-inch 16.4 megapixel BSI CMOS sensor coupled with a powerful processor. it is able of capturing images at up to 10 frames-per-second (fps) at full resolution and 60 fps at reduced resolution (2MP). In addition, the XP90 also comes equipped with an Interval Timer for shooting images at set intervals of 10 minutes, 5 minutes, 60 seconds, 30 seconds and 15 seconds and a Time-Lapse Video function, which automatically converts the sequences of images into a video.
The XP90 offers a 5x optical zoom lens that includes a 28mm wide-angle setting for sweeping landscape and scenic shots. The optical zoom range can be doubled to 10x with Fujifilm's Intelligent Digital Zoom technology, while the camera's Optical Image Stabilization function ensures that any effects from camera shake are minimized.
The XP90 comes equipped with a 3.0-inch 920K dot high-definition LCD monitor and wireless functionality for remote shooting with the free Fujifilm Camera Remote app.
The XP90 offers Full HD movie capture (1920 x 1080) and it has Scene Recognition for optimum settings and Advanced Filters to create effects.
Underwater and underwater macro functions are also available. Further creativity is offered by 11 Advanced Filter functions, while multi-frame processing is used to capture two or more shots for a High Dynamic Range (HDR) image.
