Fujifilm X-Pro1 Interchangeable Lens Cameras Comeback
Fujifilm unveils its new X-Pro1 digital camera at CES 2012, without a mirror with interchangeable lenses.
The new Fujifilm X-Pro1 features 16-megapixel APS-C X-Trans CMOS sensor and is it established as a rival digital SLRs (DSLR) in terms of image quality.
The X-Pro1 also features slick hybrid viewfinder, which we can use in optical mode for real time performance. The viewfinder is located on the top left corner, so it’s little disappointment for the left-eyed photographers cause it’s like nose will hit to the LCD every time when the camera will be near to your eye.
Fujifilm EXR technology fuses popular in the new sensor X-Pro1. The company said its new X-Trans sensor offers superior performance compared to traditional sensor APS-C.
The X-Pro1 be able to take high-definition video (1080) and is able to shoot in multiple exposure mode and color modes as a professional film. Not surprisingly, the inclusion of a hybrid type of viewfinder optical /electronic debuted with the X100 which allows the shooter to transition instantly from electronic to optical. It is also compatible with SD, SDHC and SDXC.
Fujifilm has announced three XF objectives available for the X-Pro1: XF18mmF2 R (equivalent to 27mm), f/2.0, XF 35mmF1.4 R (equivalent to 53mm), f/1.4, and I XF60mmF2.4 Macro (equivalent to 90mm) F / 2.4. .
And one more best thing, 6-by-6 RGB pixel arrangement in the imaging sensor helps to eliminate undesired effects such as moiré without the need for a resolution-hindering optical low-pass filter
X-Pro1 is compatible with accessories including a add-on hand grip for comfortable holding, a protective leather case, a hot shoe mount flash, and protective filters for the lenses. In addition, there are going to be some mount adapters so that other lenses can be used on the X-Pro1.
This camera will be available in late February. They have not revealed the price for the x-Pro1 yet, however, representatives from Fujifilm hinted an estimated U.S. $ 1,700 for the body and $650 for the lenses, to place the camera in the territory of the DSLR.
