Fujifilm X-E1

The Fujifilm X-E1 is the slimmed down version of the X-Pro1. The X-E1 is smaller than the X-Pro1, it loses the optical viewfinder but retains an electronic viewfinder. It also manages to squeeze in a built-in flash, something the X-Pro1 lacked. While the X-E1 will be more affordable than the X-Pro1, it doesn't mean that Fujifilm skimped on this camera - the specs still pack a surprising punch like the same 16MP APS-C X-Trans CMOS sensor and image processing engine found in the X-Pro1.

Fujifilm XF1

Not quite the replacement for last year's X10 compact, the XF1 is a new premium compact with a beautiful retro-inspired look. But the XF1 is not just a good-looker, it also packs a bright f/1.8-f/4.9 Fujinon lens with a 2/3" EXR CMOS sensor, and a sturdy body made from aluminium with faux leather.
