If you click on this link, you’ll be able to download a free PDF photographers guidbook for the X-E1. (If you want the free X-PRO1 book [with instruction on how to use SILKYPIX], click here) From the description:

“This is an official guidebook for the premium interchangeable lens camera, FUJIFILM X-E1. It is intended to help users enjoy photography even more with tips on how to use each of the various functions. It also includes an interview of photographer and some gallery of their works.”

It can’t match Rico’s “Mastering the X-PRO1“(Kindle Edition) (Apple iBook Store) (German version), but take a look at it, it’s nice, free and well worth a read!

X-S1 marked as discontinued at Adorama.

The X-S1 is now discontinued at Adorama (see here). It still is in stock in other US stores like Amazon here and BHphoto here. As I already told you, an anonymous source told me that the X-S1 would be replaced soon by an X-S2 with X20 tech. I don’t have any news from trusted sources about it.

Oh, and if you don’t mind about a little scratch at the top left cover and don’t care about this cosmetic problem, then you should check this X100S at ebayUS (click here). You save $100.

Rumor Update: 2/3 inch sensor not for X-entry level camera (X-S2 according to an anonymous source)

Share

digicame-info wrote me an email. They told me that the 2/3 inch X-TRANS sensor camera is not the X-entry level camera rumored before, but another product [UPDATE: 2/3 inch sensor mirrorless camera].

Now, this let’s me think about a rumor I’ve received a few days ago, anonymously via rumor box. A single line: “X-S2 with x20 tech over 1 month“. Just this, nothing more. I wanted to check it, before I post it, but now, with digicame-info saying that a new camera with a 2/3 inch sensor is about to be released this summer, I thought it’s time to post it… let’s put the pieces of this rumor puzzle together.

I hope I can bring some order in these rumor days soon. But, the good news is, that there are still some more Fuji-cameras to come next.

Have a good start in this new week

Tiny 2/3 inch sensor for the large X-mount. A waste of space?

Share

[UPDATE]: Please read the updated post here.

Latest rumors floating around the web do say that Fuji will release a 2/3 inch sensor and X-mount entry level camera in July. While it seems pretty sure that a entry level camera is coming I am not sure that the 2/3 inch sensor digicame-info rumor is correct. But if it is then I don’t get it why a super small 2/3 inch sensor should be used within the much larger X-mount. As you see from the image on top there is an incredible “waste of space”. I would rather make a new mount for that to reduce the mount and the overall camera size.

As I said, we talk about rumors and not about facts. But I want to hear from you guys if there is something I am missing here…
