A month ago, we heard some rumors that Fujifilm was working on an entry-level X-Series camera for those of us who didn’t want to spend on the X-M1 but wanted something better than the X100. Details were (and to some degree still are) a bit thin, but now we have what seems to be the first leaked photo of the upcoming mirrorless camera. Read more…

Fuji Officially Unveils the X-M1, an Entry Level X-Series ILC for the Masses

Fujifilm’s newest creation, the X-M1, was outed last week when photos of the entry-level X-Series interchangeable lens camera (ILC) leaked onto the web. But while the photos did reveal that the camera would pack a serious punch in a tiny package (in large part due to the lack of a built-in viewfinder), many of the camera’s specs and features were still unknown.

Well, the day has arrived for Fuji to make the camera official, and along with some high-res press images, we’re also getting a full breakdown of specs, pricing and an expected release date. Read more…

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.

Rumors emerged last month that Fujifilm would be announcing an entry-level X Series mirrorless camera this summer. Looks like those rumors were spot on.

Photographs of an upcoming Fujifilm X-M1 mirrorless camera leaked today, showing a sleek and minimalist camera that looks like a stripped down version of existing X Series cameras.

Fujifilm May Already Be Working on a Full Frame Camera for the X-Series Lineup

There are currently two interchangeable-lens rangefinder-esque cameras in Fujifilm’s X-Series lineup: the X-Pro1 and the X-E1, both of which contain APS-C sensors. Owners are gushing over the cameras, which are actually quite similar aside from the viewfinders (hybrid vs. electronic only). They feature sleek, retro designs that are very similar to Leica’s classic M-line of rangefinders. A common sentiment that I’ve heard is that the X-Series would be absolutely perfect if the company simply introduced a full frame body.

That time might not be too far off.

Fujifilm Unveils New Firmware for the X-Pro1 That Makes Autofocus Snappier

In addition to the new X-E1 announced this morning, Fujifilm has also unveiled its upcoming version 2.0 of its X-Pro1 firmware. Autofocus has been a much-griped-about feature of the X-Pro1 (and the X100, for that matter), and the new firmware addresses that issue by improving the AF capabilities of the camera in different ways.

Fujifilm Adds the Non-Retro X-S1 to the X Series Lineup

Fujifilm’s press event yesterday wasn’t just to announce that they’re working on a new mirrorless system camera: they also announced the X-S1, the first non-retro styled camera to appear in the X lineup. The camera looks like a DSLR with a kit lens attached, but actually uses a fixed 26x f/2.8-5.6 lens and an electronic viewfinder. It uses the same 2/3-inch sensor size as the X10, which has about 1/4 of the area of a Micro Four Thirds sensor.

It’s strange that the company decided to add a camera like this to what was a pretty unique X Series lineup, but maybe there’s something special about the camera that hasn’t been announced yet…
