Fujifilm has announced its latest Interchangeable Lens Camera, the X-E2. The camera's 16.3-megapixel APS-C X-Trans CMOS II image sensor has been specifically designed "to control moiré and false color generation by using an original color filter array with a highly randomized pixel arrangement." This means the X-E2 doesn't need an Optical Low Pass Filter, which can degrade resolution. Fujifilm's new ILC also features the new EXR Processor II, which enables the X-E2 to achieve the fastest auto focus -- as little as 0.08 seconds -- in its camera segment. 

The X-E2 also boasts a built-in pop up flash, an ISO range of 200-6400, a number of Film Simulation Modes and Advanced Filters to creatively tweak photos, and two high resolution displays -- a 2.63-million dot OLED viewfinder and a 1.04-million dot, 3.0-inch, high contrast, high brightness and wide viewing angle LCD.

Digital Split Image Technology as well as Focus Highlight Peaking have been added to help users attain razor sharp manual focus. Future filmmakers will be thankful for Full HD 1920x1080 video recording at 60 frames-per-second with a 36Mbps bit rate (which is on par with the best Blu-rays). Finally, the X-E2 includes built-in Wi-Fi to transfer still images and video directly to PCs or, via the Fujifilm Camera App, iOS and Android devices such as smartphones and tablets.
