Fujifilm Announces Two Powerful New X-series Cameras: the X-E2 and XQ1

X-E2_Silver_Front_High_angle_18-55mm.jpgHot off the press, Fuji has just uncovered two powerful new X-series products. The first is an ILC that promises increased resolution and detail, thanks to its new APS-C sized 16.3-megapixel X-Trans CMOS II, which does not include an optical low pass filter like found on most ILCs. Fuji claims it offers the fastest AF in its class, due to their new EXR Processor II. Like past Fuji X-series models, the X-E2 offers that classic rangefinder look. See our Fujifilm X-E2 Preview for more on this interesting new ILC.

X-Q1_Black_Front_Right_Wide.jpgNext up is a new X-series fixed lens camera, the XQ1. This model focuses on size, with some high-quality features stuffed into a pocket-sized digicam. These include a 2/3-inch 12-megapixel X-Trans CMOS II image sensor, the same EXR Processor II found in the X-E2, full 1080p HD video recording at 60fps, and a fast f/1.4 Fujinon 4x optical zoom lens. It too offers a retro style, with your choice of a black or silver body. Check out our Fujifilm XQ1 Preview for more details.
