Ahead of the upcoming PhotoPlus trade show, Fujifilm has announced two new digital cameras, the XQ1 and the mirrorless X-E2. First of them is a spiritual successor to the popular XF1 and features a revised design among powerful capabilities. It was equipped with the 2/3" sensor that hitherto was to be found in the X20 model only, 12-megapixel X-Trans CMOS II architecture, EXR Processor II and Fujifilm's latest Fujinon 25-100 mm f/1,8-4,9 lens. XQ1's specs include also a 3-inch 920,000-pixel LCD display, built-in Wi-Fi, and manual focus assist for easy close-up photography. The camera's advanced components make it able to deliver the fastest AF speed at 0.06 seconds. Its software was enhanced with refined menus and additional photo filters. Fujifilm XQ1 is expected to hit store shelves in November for £349,99.
Latter of the newly released cameras is the X-E2, a premium camera with incredible capabilities. Fujifilm X-E2 is a mirrorless interchangeable lens camera with OLED automatic viewfinder, and the new EXR Processor II. Just like the XQ1, the X-E2 is equipped with 16,3-megapixel APS-C X-Trans CMOS II sensor that should translate into better imaging performance. It also has a hybrid AF, 3-inch display and built-in RAW converter. Fujifilm X-E2 will launch in November for £1199,99 as a kit with the XF18-55mm lens, and £799,99 body-only.
