FUJIFILM launches the X-M1
Compact and lightweight, the X-M1 offers enhanced operability whilst bringing the outstanding design, picture quality and performance of the multi-award-winning FUJIFILM X-Pro1 and X-E1 cameras not only to photo enthusiasts but also to a broader scope of users.
Featuring the same internationally-acclaimed proprietary multi-award-winning 16.3 megapixel APS-C X-Trans CMOS Sensor as the FUJIFILM X-Pro1 and FUJIFILM X-E1
The FUJIFILM X-M1 is equipped with a large APS-C X-Trans CMOS Sensor, which offers picture quality comparable to that of full-frame sensors. The sensor’s unique colour filter array minimises moiré and chromatic aberration without the need for an optical low pass filter, while dramatically boosting resolving power even at identical pixel counts to deliver sharp and texture-rich pictures.
The design draws out the potential of high-performance lenses to the maximum. It delivers clear images with stunningly low noise even in low-light conditions at night and indoors, where high sensitivity would usually be required. The sensor faithfully reproduces the warm tones of human skin and the vivid colours of the sky from deep blues to the red hues of the setting sun.
Users can set the sensor sensitivity from the regular ISO200 to as high as ISO6400 in 1/3 step increments, and can even take advantage of the extended range of ISO12800 and ISO25600 to obtain incredibly clear and low-noise images even in low-light or at night.
Fujifilm EXR Processor II for high-speed reactions
The EXR Processor II boasts fast performance, offering stress-free photo capture with its:
- start-up time of 0.5 seconds (*1)
- shutter time lag of 0.05 seconds
- maximum burst speed of 5.6 frames per second (max. 30 frames*2)
- *1 Quick Start mode
Designed to enable one handed operation with intuitive and quick selection of functions for casual shooting with beautiful results
All of the adjustable buttons and dials are positioned on the right-hand side of the camera’s rear LCD panel in pursuit of optimum operability and ease-of-use for casual shooting. When holding the camera with just your right hand, the placement of the buttons has been designed to allow you to access all functions and adjust the settings easily.
The Mode Dial allows you to select the optimum scene setting with access to the “Advanced SR Auto” function, which automatically recognises a scene type for fail-safe photography, and the “Advanced Filter” function for artistic photographic effects.
The camera is equipped with two Command Dials, allowing users to adjust the aperture, shutter speed and exposure compensation quickly with their thumb. Individual buttons are also provided to access frequently-used functions such as White Balance, Burst Mode and Macro, so that you don’t have to go to the menu screen for each change of setting, enabling an intuitive and quick operation.
Sporting a compact and lightweight body, with a cool, retro design inherited from the FUJIFILM X-Pro1 and X-E1
The X-M1 has a classical and elegant feel just like the popular FUJIFILM X-Pro1 and X-E1 cameras. And importantly, at about half the size of a regular SLR body (66.5mm high and 39.0mm deep), its compact and lightweight design means users can casually carry it in a bag without having to worry about the bulk.
Featuring a 920,000 dot high definition tiltable 3-inch LCD for creative and multi-angle shots
Wireless image transfer allowing you to instantly transfer high quality images to a mobile device or computer
