Fujifilm Announces X-E2 Mirrorless Camera and XQ1 Compact with X-Trans II Sensor

It's raining cameras, with the Sony A7 and A7R full-frame mirrorless system cameras, Sony RX10 superzoom with large sensor, Panasonic's ultra-compact Lumix GM1 with a GX7 sensor inside, and Nikon's new D5300 DSLR camera all announced earlier in the week. Today, we have Fujifilm announcing the X-E2, their latest mid-range mirrorless system camera, and the XQ1, a compact camera with an X-Trans sensor inside.

The Fujifilm X-E2 is the successor to last year's X-E1, it comes with the company's latest 16.3MP X-Trans CMOS II sensor, and a new EXR Processor II which Fujifilm says more than doubles the processing speed of the previous generation. The X-E2 comes with phase-detection AF and contrast-detection AF, as well as a new 'Lens Modulation Optimizer' feature which tailors in-camera processing to individual lenses for best effect. The camera also comes with built-in Wi-Fi.

The local availability and price has yet to be announced, but DP Review has the US pricing at US$999.95 for the body alone, US$1,399.95 with the XF18-55mm f/2.8-4 kit lens, and the camera will be available in the US in November.

The Fujifilm XQ1 is a new enthusiast compact camera with a 12MP 2/3" X-Trans II CMOS sensor and hybrid auto-focus. It has a 25-100mm f/1.8-4.9 lens with optical image stabilization, 1080/60p video recording and built-in Wi-Fi. DP Review has the US pricing at US$499.95, and it will be available in the US in October in black or silver.
