FujiFilm X-M1 interchangeable-lens camera offering the same sensor as the X-Pro1

FUJIFILM Corp. is proud to announce the third premium interchangeable-lens camera - FUJIFILM X-M1. Stylish and compact, yet possessing the power to capture every scene with unprecedented image quality and richness of color reproduction.

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. It's priced at a reasonable $699.95 as a body only, and a kit with a new XC 16-50mm F3.5-5.6 OIS lens is only $100 more.

The camera packs a 16-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor, which offers picture quality comparable to that of full-frame sensors. 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 colors of the sky from deep blues to the red hues of the setting sun.
--> The FujiFilm X-M1 is the first X camera to feature built-in Wi-Fi. You'll be able to transfer photos to your iOS or Android device via a free app. Up to 30 photos can be transferred at a clip. It doesn't look like the camera has the ability to email or post photos directly to the Web, so you'll need to use your phone or tablet as a go-between.

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 ISO100, ISO12800 and ISO25600 to obtain incredibly clear and low-noise images even under clear sky and in low-light or at night.

The FujiFilm X-M1 is powered by the EXR Processor II imaging engine, bringing with it a start up time and shutter lag of half a second, while burst capture mode can be ramped up to 5.6fps. There’s a Super i-Flash, which meters lighting based on the scene, with the integrated flash being the equivalent of Guide Number 7. The LCD measures in at 3-inches with 920k dots and a hinge for tilting. Overall, the unit weighs 330 grams, can be nabbed in brown, black, and silver colors.
