Over the past two days I've had some time to work with the new Fujifilm X-E1.
I am shooting the camera with the Fujifilm XF lenses 18mm, 35mm, & 60mm. ISO is varies from 200-2000.
Here are some images from the Fujifilm XF lenses the other night for the World Trade Center memorial beams of light. They are a bit faint in the distance, above. If you'd like to see what the beams look like check my other post here - http://brandonremler.blogspot.com/2012/09/world-trade-center-twin-tower-beams.html
These are all quick jpegs.
Some quick specs on the new X-E1 are:
The FUJIFILM X-E1 follows in the tradition of the award-winning FUJIFILM X-Pro1 and utilizes the same proprietary 16.3 Megapixel APS-C X-Trans CMOS sensorTM and the same X-Mount for use with FUJINON XF lenses, all in a body that is 30% smaller than the FUJIFILM X-Pro1.
With its compact, travel-friendly size, the X-E1 promises to be an exciting addition to the FUJIFILM X-Series. It will be available in two classic designs: a two-tone black and silver, and a solid black. Both versions of the X-E1 will also ship as kits with the XF18mm-55mm (27-84mm) F2.8-4 lens in November 2012.
FUJIFILM original “X-Mount” maximizes lens performance
Specifically designed to take advantage of the camera’s mirrorless design, the X-Mount has a short flange back distance of just 17.7mm made possible by designing the mount ring as thin as 2.5mm. This means the rear lens elements are as close as possible to the sensor, reducing the back focus distance of each lens to the minimum possible, thus achieving high resolution from edge to edge. And when fitted with a FUJIFILM M Mount Adapter, the X-E1 can use a wide variety of M lenses to broaden the scope of your photography.
2.36 million dot "Organic LED (OLED) electronic viewfinder"
The FUJIFILM X-E1 camera comes equipped with a high definition, high luminance OLED electronic viewfinder with a resolution of 2.36 million dots that is one of the highest resolutions available on an EVF-equipped digital camera today. The natural, bright viewfinder offers a horizontal field of view of 25-degrees, allowing users to scan the entire scene quickly and easily.
FUJIFILM X-E1 key features list:
• 16.3 megapixel APS-C X-Trans CMOS Sensor and EXR Processor Pro
