IFA 2014 may be practically done, but the barrage of new products coming from Germany is far from over. In advance of Photokina taking place at Cologne next week, details of Fujifilm's next roster of camers and lenses have been leaked. It's quite a doozy, so let's get the ball running ASAP.
Fujifilm has just announced the X30, its latest premium digital compact camera that is sure to give photography buffs something to talk or drool about. As the third generation of its kind, the Fujifilm X30 naturally builds on its predecessors success but also throws in a load of new features that will make it a compelling option for professional digital photographers.
Fujifilm has announced a new tele-conversion lens for its X100 and X100S digital cameras. We spent some hands-on time with the X100S digital camera at CES 2013 and it looked to be a high quality camera. Photographers out there using either of those Fujifilm digital cameras can now get a new tele-conversion lens that is called the TCL-X100.
Fujifilm has outed its latest X-Series camera, the X-T1, a 16.3-megapixel interchangeable lens model with a wide-angle 2.36m dot OLED viewfinder promising more of a preview than on any other camera. Set to hit shelves next month, the X-T1 is dust and water resistant as well as safe from freezing at up to -14 degrees Fahrenheit, while the OLED viewfinder has the highest magnification - at 0.77x - of any digital camera, paired with an ultra-fast 0.0005s lag rate.
This week the folks at Fujifilm are teasing their next big release of a camera, starting up with the letter "X" to make sure you know, right off the bat, that we’ll be working with X-mount lenses. Here you’ll find the possibility of weather sealing right alongside a set of manual dials the likes of which the hardcore originalist will likely enjoy. This device could well be the device the Fujifilm X-Pro1 wasn’t, coming up clean with details that one-up that camera in all respects.
Following on the heels of the Fujifilm XQ1 compact digital camera recently announced, the camera maker has also introduced the interchangeable lens X-E2. With this camera comes the ability to swap out lenses for more demanding photography needs, bringing along an APS-C sized variety of the X-Trans CMOS II 16.3-megapixel sensor.
