Fujifilm X-M1 premium camera Mark Peters : August 16th 2013 - 14:50 CET
Fujifilm X-M1 premium digital camera : Fujifilm is proud to introduce the X-M1, the third premium interchangeable-lens camera from the company. Compact and lightweight, the new Fujifilm X-M1 premium camera offers enhanced operability whilst bringing the outstanding design, picture quality and performance of the multi-award-winning Fujifilm X-Pro1 and X-E1 cameras not only to photo enthusiasts but also to a broader scope of users. The Fujifilm X-M1 digital camera is equipped with a large APS-C X-Trans CMOS Sensor, which offers picture quality comparable to that of full-frame sensors. The sensor's unique colour filter array minimises moiré and chromatic aberration without the need for an optical low pass filter, while dramatically boosting resolving power even at identical pixel counts to deliver sharp pictures.
Fujifilm X-M1 digital camera features
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. 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.
Function for artistic photography
All of the adjustable buttons and dials are positioned on the right-hand side of the camera's rear LCD panel in pursuit of optimum operability and ease-of-use for casual shooting. When holding the camera with just your right hand the placement of the buttons has been designed to allow you to access all functions and adjust the settings easily. The Mode Dial allows you to select the optimum scene setting with access to the [Advanced SR Auto] mode, which automatically recognises a scene type for fail-safe photography, and the [Advanced Filter] function for artistic photography.
Fujifilm X-M1 with two command dials
The Fujifilm X-M1 premium camera is equipped with two Command Dials, allowing users to adjust the aperture, shutter speed and exposure compensation quickly with their thumb. Individual buttons are also provided to access frequently-used functions such as White Balance, Burst Mode and Macro, so that you don't have to go to the menu screen for each change of setting, enabling an intuitive and quick operation.
