Fujifilm X-M1 entry-level X-Trans camera officially announced

Fujifilm X-M1 entry-level X-Trans camera officially announced

Fujifilm X-M1 has been officially announced as an entry-level alternative to the X-Pro1 and X-E1 in the world of APS-C X-Trans image sensor cameras.

Fujifilm has attracted a lot of positive reviews when the first camera powered by the 16.3-megapixel APS-C X-Trans CMOS image sensor became official. The X-Pro1 and X-E1 are still considered too expensive, therefore consumers have been asking for an entry-level device. Fuji has answered these calls and the X-M1 has been unveiled on June 25, just like the rumor mill had predicted.

The Fujifilm X-M1 specs also include the EXR Processor II, which allows users to boot the camera in 0.5 seconds. Furthermore, the shutter time lag is reduced to 0.05 seconds, while giving photographers the possibility of capturing 5.6 frames per second for up to 30 frames in continuous shooting mode.

Although there is no built-in electronic viewfinder, Fujifilm has added a tilting 3-inch LCD screen with a 920K-dot resolution. A tripod mount is also available, along with integrated flash, WiFi, and a hot shoe for adding external accessories.

The WiFi function requires the Fujifilm Camera app that can be downloaded on smartphones, tablets, and computers. It will allow users to share images instantly without connecting the camera using a USB cable.

Fuji’s new X-M1 records full HD videos and captures RAW photos

Fujifilm X-M1 is capable of recording 1920 x 1080 videos at 30 frames per second. Other features include RAW shooting, ISO range between 200 and 6400, though sensitivity variation can be increased between 100 and 25600, and a shutter speed between 1/4000 and 30 seconds.

Photographers will have access to the usual exposure modes, including Auto, Program, Shutter Priority, Aperture Priority, Manual, and more.

Multimedia content can be stored on SD, SDHC, and SDXC memory cards.

The entry-level X-Trans camera is lacking built-in image stabilization, leaving users at the mercy of OIS-ready lenses.
