Fuji Korea announces the new X-E1! (Update with lens price )

First we heard that the announcement of the new X-E1 has been postponed to tomorrow (September 6th) But now Fuji Korea posted the full X-E1 info!!! Don’t know if they made a mistake by publishing it too early :)

P.S.: Google translation tool isn’t working on the korean website. Any help form Korean readers is welcome!


UPDATE: Price info of the 14mm f/2.8 lens have been posted on Digidirect.com.au. And also for the 18-55mm zoom (Click here).

Correction Fuji X-E1 announcement tomorrow. Sony-Fuji partnership on the OLED viewfinder!

Our friends over at Photorumors corrected their previous claim of a September.5th announcement. The Fuji X-E1 and the X compact camera with fixed lens are going to be announced tomorrow September 6th!

The interesting thing is that the new X-E1 will use the same electronic OLED viewfinder of the Sony NEX-6 that is going to be announced next week. It’s a 2,34k dot viewfinder.  I am surprised to hear about that partnership!

More info: X-E1 weights 350g and a mic input that will serve as electronic camera trigger.


Reminder: Tomorrow Fuji X-E1 and XF1 (or XG1) announcement!

Good Morning!
This is just a short message to remind you that tomorrow Fuji will announce two new X cameras. These are the X-E1 specs:

  • Same 16MP sensor as in the X-Pro1 (with max ISO of 25,600)
  • 6 fps
  • Light magnesium body
  • Improved AF speed
  • Price: bellow $1000
  • To be released before Christmas
  • Same video recording capabilities as the X-Pro1
  • Mic input
  • EVF only (not hybrid as the X-Pro1)
  • Two colors: black and silver
  • Pull 25 ISO to simulate Velvia in JPEG mode

Can’t wait to see it for real! Hope they have fixed soem of the AF and Sensor issues of the X-PRO 1. P.S.: There is a massive price drop on the X PRO 1 when purchased along one of the X lenses at Amazon (Click here to see the X PRO 1 dedicated deal page).

Fuji announcement on September 5th?

Peter from Photorumors reports that Fuji will announce the new X-E1 and XF1 (or XP1) camera on September 5th (yes it is next week). And there is one more news. The next XF 18-55mm lens will be the first with new linear AF motor. It will help to speed up the autofocus to 0.1 seconds.

Pretty amazing if true!
