Fujifilm announced the launch of its X-E2 interchangeable lens camera with the latest APS-C X-Trans TM CMOS II sensor and world’s fastest AF (Auto Focus) speed.
Building on the global success of the highly acclaimed X-E1, the X-E2 takes image quality to a dynamic new level that is comparable with full-frame cameras. It delivers even more beautiful colour reproduction, higher definition image capture, and that world’s fastest AF speed of 0.08 seconds.
This is achieved by more than doubling the processing speed of the EXR Processor II. It is able to harness the information taken from over 100,000 phase detection pixels incorporated in the X-Trans CMOS II. The hybrid AF also combines phase detection AF and contrast AF to ensure accuracy when shooting low-contrast subjects and dark scenes.
The 16.3 million pixels APS-C sized X-Trans CMOS II Sensor incorporate an original color filter array. This eliminates the need for an optical low pass filter that typically minimizes moiré but does so at the expense of resolution. Instead, the X-Trans CMOS II sensor can capture unfiltered light from the lens for an unprecedented level of image clarity.
Quality is further improved by the Lens Modulation Optimizer (LMO). Its high-precision processing of the various lens parameters, as well as data from the screen centre to the edges, corrects diffraction blur when shooting with a stopped down aperture and compensates for the slight blurring in the lens periphery. The result is edge-to-edge image quality with incredible sharpness. LMO will be compatible with every XF lens.
The X-E2’s prestigious feel continues with the combination of aperture ring on the lens and shutter dial on the top of the body as seen in its predecessor. This allows full shooting control while keeping the user’s eye to the viewfinder. The X-E2 is available in solid black or two-tone black and silver.
