Digicaminfo posted a new set of X-E1 pictures. Finally we can see the camera from the top and back too!
Photorumors found the full X-E1 specifications:
- 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
A month ago we have been told that there would be a lower and a higher end X model. These are the pictures of the entry level X camera! It comes in Black and in Silver and there is also the picture of the new XF18-55mm F2.8-4 R OIS. Cool!
UPDATE: As you may have noticed from the pictures the cameras has an Electronic Viewfinder and a Built-in Flash.
Current Fuji X PRO 1 owners know well the strengths but also the quirks of the camera. And those quirks are a major problem as it seems that they can be fixed by hardware changes only.
UPDATE: We know got some info from reliable sources saying that a new X PRO 2 camera is about to be announced soon. The camera will feature a new sensor too. We heard it will be priced above the current X PRO 1. But it has to be really good to convince me to spend more than you have to do for the X PRO 1 :)
I hope to receive some more info soon!
