Cameras Raining from the Sky !

Did you wake up to the announcement by Fujifilm that we launched 19 new cameras today?  Some exciting stuff and I am looking forward to working with the new X-S1.

FUJIFILM X-S1 key features:

• Large 2/3-inch 12 MP EXR-CMOS sensor
• High quality FUJINON 26x optical precision zoom 24-624mm (35mm equivalent) with Intelligent Digital Zoom boosting focal range up to 52x and Optical Image Stabilization
• Superb build quality and finish with rubberized coating and metal dials
• Up to 10fps continuous shooting
• Large tilting 3” 460,000 pixel resolution LCD screen with Sunlight mode
• Large EVF with 1.4 million pixel resolution and 26 degree viewing angle
• Full 1080p HD movie with stereo sound
• Super Macro focusing as close as 1cm
• Raw and jpeg shooting
• Film simulation modes
• Program / Shutter-Priority / Aperture-Priority / Manual modes
• Lithium Ion rechargeable battery providing up to 500 shots per charge
• 360° Motion Panorama mode
RAW / RAW+JPEG Shooting
The X-S1 has the ability to shoot both a RAW and JPEG shot simultaneously. RAW is for ultimate quality shots via post processing, JPEG is for great quality with no need for further post-production work.

Motion Panorama 360°
The FUJIFILM X-S1 delivers exquisite panoramas by allowing its sensor to extend the sweep range to 360˚ (shots can also be taken vertically). Combined with high quality Fujifilm printing, sweeping and impressive scenes can be taken, showing fine detail, low noise and high resolution at 180°, 240˚ or full 360˚ panoramic ranges.

Extraordinary versatility
At the heart of the FUJIFILM X-S1 is the FUJINON 26x optical precision zoom lens that offers a focal range of 24-624mm with its bright and fast f/2.8 maximum aperture at the wide-angle zoom setting.

The X-S1 FUJINON lens delivers images with superb edge-to-edge sharpness and amazing clarity. The lens construction is of the highest standard, featuring metal cams for smooth zoom control and fast, precise framing.

  1. Brandon, you're making a compelling case for me to get rid of my Nikon DSLR gear and make the complete switch to Fujifilm. This one completely blows away my old S6000fd... it's evolution in the best way. But I'll still keep my F300EXR for a daily walk-around camera, unless I make the jump to the X10.
