(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) The Fujifilm X-E1, an all-new interchangeable lens camera system was recently showcased at Photokina - the world's leading imaging fair held in Germany - and won the 'Photokina Star 2012' Award for its outstanding performance.

The camera has made its much anticipated UAE debut and is now available across the country following its predecessor, the X-Pro1.

The X-E1 boasts of the same 16 megapixel APS-C X-Trans CMOS Sensor with top-class OLED electronic viewfinder, a smaller body with built-in flash and the same X mount for the Fujinon XF lens range. The image quality is comparable to a 35mm full frame D-SLR sensor making the camera extremely attractive for professional photographers.

"We are extremely excited about adding this new camera under the innovative X-Series umbrella. We are confident that photographers will enjoy this new introduction to the market," said Keitaro So, general manager, Fujifilm Electronics Imaging Division, Mena. "Fujifilm will expand the lens line-up from three to five in the coming months, and up to 10 in early 2013, making the camera a worthwhile investment for professional photographers."

Classical design

Made in Japan, the X-E1 exudes class and high quality, as can be seen from each of its components. The top and front covers are made from die-cast magnesium for a rigid, yet delicate design. At roughly the same size as the Fujifilm X100, the X-E1 is refreshingly compact and lightweight (just 350g(1)), in spite of its advanced feature set. Featuring a rubber grip for additional hold, it is a well-balanced camera with the X lens mount positioned centrally on the camera so that the weight of the body and the lens is distributed evenly.

2.36m dot OLED viewfinder

Unlike the X-Pro1 with its hybrid multi viewfinder, the X-E1 camera boasts an OLED electronic viewfinder with a resolution of 2.36 million dots, making it one of the highest resolutions available on digital cameras with EVFs(4). The viewfinder on the X-E1 has a unique lens structure consisting of two-glass elements and one double aspherical element, which in conjunction with the OLED offers an incredibly high quality display.

APS-C X-Trans CMOS Sensor

The Fujifilm X-E1 features the same 16.3 megapixel APS-C X-Trans CMOS Sensor as the Fujifilm X-Pro1. Its unique colour filter array can effectively minimise moir and false colours without the need for an optical low pass filter. This makes it possible for the camera to maximise its advanced resolution capture, and to record each photograph brightly and clearly across the whole image.

With its convenient, portable size and fast autofocus speed, the X-E1 promises to be an exciting addition to the X-Series range. Available in two variations: Silver and Black, the attractive classical design of the X-E1 interchangeable lens camera will have wide appeal.
