Fujifilm launches new X-E1 interchangeable-lens camera in UAE
- United Arab Emirates: Wednesday, November 14 - 2012 at 10:23
- PRESS RELEASE
The Fujifilm X-E1, an all-new interchangeable lens camera system was recently showcased at Photokina - the world's leading imaging fair held in Germany - and won the 'Photokina STAR 2012' Award for its outstanding performance. The camera has made its much anticipated UAE debut and is now available across the country following its predecessor, the X-Pro1.
The image quality is comparable to a 35mm full frame D-SLR sensor making the camera extremely attractive for professional photographers.
"We are extremely excited about adding this new camera under the innovative X-Series umbrella. We are confident that photographers will enjoy this new introduction to the market," said Keitaro So, General Manager, Fujifilm Electronics Imaging Division, MENA.
"Fujifilm will expand the lens line-up from 3 to 5 in the coming months, and up to 10 in early 2013, making the camera a worthwhile investment for professional photographers," he added.
Classical design for intuitive operation
Made in Japan, the X-E1 exudes class and high quality, as can be seen from each of its components. The top and front covers are made from die-cast magnesium for a rigid, yet delicate design. At roughly the same size as the Fujifilm X100, the X-E1 is refreshingly compact and lightweight (just 350g(1)), in spite of its advanced feature set. Featuring a rubber grip for additional hold, it is a well balanced camera with the X lens mount positioned centrally on the camera so that the weight of the body and the lens is distributed evenly.
High-definition and high-luminance 2.36 million dot 'OLED electronic viewfinder'
Unlike the X-Pro1 with its hybrid multi viewfinder, the X-E1 camera boasts an OLED electronic viewfinder with a resolution of 2.36 million dots, making it one of the highest resolutions available on digital cameras with EVFs(4).
The viewfinder on the X-E1 has a unique lens structure consisting of two glass elements and one double aspherical element, which in conjunction with the OLED offers an incredibly high quality display.
Featuring Fujifilm's proprietary APS-C X-Trans CMOS Sensor offering exceptional colour rendition and image resolution
The Fujifilm X-E1 features the same 16.3 megapixel APS-C X-Trans CMOS Sensor as the Fujifilm X-Pro1. Its unique colour filter array can effectively minimise moiré and false colours without the need for an optical low pass filter. This makes it possible for the camera to maximise its advanced resolution capture, and to record each photograph brightly and clearly across the whole image.
With its convenient, portable size and fast autofocus speed, the X-E1 promises to be an exciting addition to the X-Series range. Available in two variations: Silver and Black, the attractive classical design of the X-E1 interchangeable lens camera will have wide appeal.
