Fujifilm X-M1 premium interchangeable-lens camera unveiled

One, two, and three...smile! Fujifilm's latest foray into the photography market sports a 16.3-megapixel APS-C sensor.

Japanese photography and imaging company, Fujifilm, is announcing the launch of its third premium interchangeable-lens camera called the X-M1.

Borrowing the astute features of Fujifilm's X-Pro1 and X-E1 cameras which both launched last year, the X-M1 touts a 16.3-megapixel APS-C X-Trans CMOS Sensor that is no stranger to picture quality.

The sensor, according to Fujifilm, has a color filter that can minimize chromatic aberration without the need for an optical low pass filter. The X-M1's lens are also abe to deliver clear images with low noise even at low-light conditions, while sensor sensitivity can be adjusted between ISO200 to as high as ISO6400.

Under the hood is an EXR Processor II that delivers start-up time of 0.5 seconds, shutter time lag of 0.05 seconds, and a maximum burst speed of 5.6 frames per second.

Apart from the retro-like design, the camera also features a 3-inch LCD screen, built-in flash, 49 point AF, nifty art filters, in-camera RAW processing, and a camera app that transfers images from the camera to mobile devices.

Expect the X-M1 to hit stores next month. It will retail for $700 for the black version, and $800 for the silver model.
