New Fujifilm X-Pro1 Photos and Specs, Camera to Offer Film Simulation Modes

Fujifilm’s beautiful X-Pro1 mirrorless camera isn’t official yet, but we now have a clearer picture of what the system will look like after a few product pages for X-series lenses were accidentally published on Amazon (they’ve since been removed). In addition to new images of the camera itself, prices for the lenses were revealed: $500 for the 35mm f/1.4 and 18mm f/2.0, and $600 for the 60mm f/2.4. Also, get this: the camera will be able to simulate 10 different kinds of film (e.g. Provia, Velvia, Astia, B&W)!

The camera will capture 16.3 megapixel images using a 23.6×15.6mm APS-C X-Trans CMOS sensor. It’ll have a primary color filter and a cleaning system that uses ultrasonic vibrations. It’ll be feature RAW mode, an SD card slot, 1080p H.264 HD video recording with stereo sound, an ISO range of 200-6400 (expandable to 25600), TTL 256-zone metering, 6fps continuous shooting, a 3-inch LCD screen, and a hybrid viewfinder.

There will also be a hotshoe flash and leather case for the camera.

All that’s left to see is whether the image quality is good and what price they set for the camera itself. Aside from that, the design is gorgeous and the fact that the camera offers film simulation modes with an interchangeable lens rangefinger-esque body will be a huge attraction for people who want to do old school shooting with new school technology.
