Fujifilm has announced the new Fujifilm X-E2, a premium interchangeable lens camera featuring the latest generation 16.3 Megapixel APS-C X-Trans CMOS II sensor. The X-E2 offers a rapid startup time of 0.5 seconds, minimal shutter lag of 0.05 seconds, and high-speed continuous shooting of 7.0 fps. With its auto switching AF, the X-E2 combines contrast AF with an improved phase detection AF algorithm that provides accurate capture of low-contrast subjects in low light as well as high-speed responsiveness.
The X-E2 features a 2.36 million dot OLED viewfinder with Fujifilm’s original optical design for a “distortion-free” field of view. A 3” LCD screen with 1.04 million dot resolution and reinforced glass gives users high viewing angles and a true view of their subject. The Fujifilm X-E2 shoots full HD video at 1920×1080 with up to 60fps with AF for exceptional speed, accuracy and smoothness with a high bitrate of 36Mbps. The X-E2 includes a WiFi button that lets users transfer high quality photos and movies to smartphones, tablets and computers for sharing on social media sites. The X-E2 also has an Advanced Filter function and Film Simulation modes to give users a range of creative filters and film effects to apply and achieve unique and artistic looks.
The Fujifilm X-E2 (body only) will be available in November for $999.95 USD in both black, and a two-tone black and silver. The Fujifilm X-E2 and XF18mm-55mm F2.8-4 lens (kit) will also be available in November for $1,399.95 USD.
