Fujifilm’s upcoming “entry-level” X-M1 X Series mirrorless camera was outed today after photographs of the camera were leaked onto the Web. We now know what the camera will look like, but many of the camera’s specs and features are still unknown. The size and weight of the camera haven’t been revealed yet, but it’s actually possible to determine the relative size of the camera to other X Series mirrorless cameras using just the leaked photos.
The comparison is possible thanks to the leaked photo showing the camera’s sensor and mount. Since we know that the camera uses the same mount and 16MP X-Trans APS-C sensor as the X-E1 and X-Pro1, you can simply line up the sensors and mounts in Photoshop for a direct comparison of camera body sizes.
Fuji Rumors reader Maximilian did just that, creating the comparison images above and below.
Another Fuji Rumors reader named MJr created a couple of side-by-side comparisons showing the X-M1 next to the X-E1, X-Pro1, and X20 (a fixed lens camera):
As you can see, the fact that the X-M1 leaves out a built-in viewfinder allows the interchangeable lens camera to be even smaller than the fixed-lens X20, which has a much smaller 2/3-inch sensor compared to the X-M1’s APS-C sensor.
