Mirror-less camera "X-E 1" realized high image quality approaching full-size sensor without low-pass filter Photo review

By suppressing the occurrence of moiré and false color with original color filter arrangement, low pass filter is eliminated and high resolution feeling and low noise are realized. Camera that can shoot with high image quality comparable to APS - C size but full - size sensor is Fujifilm 's "X-E1"is.

There is a crowd before the booth of "X-E1".

The main body size is 129 × width 74.9 × 38.3 mm high, the weight including batteries and recording media is about 350 grams.

Retro look like a film camera.

It is like this when the lens is removed. The inside of the main unit is the "X-Trans CMOS sensor" of APS-C size of 16.3 million pixels.

The back is as follows.

Looking from above it looks like this.

On the side of the dial is adopted triangular unevenness "pyramid pattern" and it is becoming hard to slip even in sweaty state.

Bottom side.

EVF employs 2.36 million dots of organic EL to achieve clear image quality comparable to optical viewfinder. Although I actually looked into it, although it became a way that the contrast etc. was emphasized somewhat, I could see the subject clearly and I was able to do focusing smoothly.

It has a 2.8-inch display (about 460,000 dots) on the back and can perform live view shooting.

Built-in pop-up strobe.

This "X-E 1" is positioned as a low-priced version of "X-Pro 1 (actual price around 135,000 yen)" already on sale. The release schedule is in early November 2012, the expected actual sale price is only 90,000 yen for the body and the lens kit with "Fujinon lens XF18-55 mm F2.8-4 R LM OIS" is expected to be around 130,000 yen.
