I’ve read with interest all your comments about the leaked X-A1 image here. Some say it’s a fake, other believe it’s true. Now, here is the whole story:

In the mid of August Keitaro (General Manager for Middle East of Fujifilm Electronic Image Decision) visited South Africa. On the 14 of August he had a meeting with Marc Sweeney. In this occasion the Fuji manager showed him the X-A1. Marc took an image of the X-A1 and shared it on his google+ profile here… and this is the image I shared with you here.

That’s all. I got the image, I got the story and I shared it with you. As the image was taken back on August 14 it’s possible that the X-A1 shown here is a dummy and not the final version.

The Best Cameras of 2013 (trustedreviews)

The year isn’t over, Fuji and other companies are going to release more cameras, but we already have a best cameras list for 2013. Trustedreviews picked out the top 10 cameras of the year. 8th position for the X-E1 and 5th position for the Fuji HS50EXR. See the whole list here.

turstedreviews tested the HS50EXR here. “There a lot to like about the HS50 EXR. Not only is it one of the best-specified superzoom bridge cameras on the market, but it also has the performance to match. It has an excellent viewfinder, lightning-quick focusing system and truly ergonomic design, and  is only really let down by poor video quality and a few usability issues. Although it’s far from the smallest and lightest superzoom bridge camera available, at its current price it’s certainly one of the best on the market.

Hot! First image of the new Fuji X-A1 X mount camera!


What you see on the picture is the soon to be announced Fuji X-A1 camera. It will be the new entry level X-mount camera. Unlike the X-M1, it won’t have an X-Trans sensor (and also not the X100 sensor), will come in a lot of colours and will be sold by big retailers on the web and big general stores.

The camera should be announced very soon. Stay tuned!
