Fujifilm X-E1 set to take on Sony NEX 7
After first coming to light a few weeks ago, the retro-styled Fujifilm X-E1 mirrorless camera is now official. The compact camera also sports the same 16.3-megapixel APS-C X-Trans CMOS sensor from the X-Pro1, while it also supports any X-Mount interchangeable lenses. It comes in two styles, a two-tone black and silver model and an all-black version.
Fujifilm X-Pro1 confirmed
Fujifilm confirmed yet another leaked wire release on Monday with the advent of the X-Pro1. The camera is Fujifilm's first with an internally developed lens mount system and mates it with a new 16-megapixel, APS-C (DSLR-sized) CMOS sensor using what the company bills as X-Trans. Fujifilm claims superiority not just to other mirrorless systems but even to DSLRs, arguing that its pixel placement doesn't require the usual optical low-pass filter to clean the shot, eliminate moiré, and potentially shoot photos that appear sharper than from a full-frame DSLR.
