Until October 23, 2013, get a $200 instant savings on one of Fuji’s latest in its highly acclaimed X-Series line of digital mirrorless cameras, the FujiFilm X-E1, when you purchase it with the kit XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 OIS lens.
The X-E1 continues in Fuji’s X-series classical designs. But this is not is not just a matter of nostalgia: the manual aperture ring, the exposure and shutter speed dials and electronic viewfinder prioritize photography, provide for quick operation and return us to an era when the camera was king.
X-Trans CMOS Sensor
Featuring Fuji’s renowned 16.3MP APS-C X-Trans CMOS sensor and EXR Processor Pro image processor, the X-E1 produces professional results in the size and convenience of a mirrorless body. Technically speaking, the DSLR-sized X-Trans sensor eliminates a low pass filter and reduces moiré and false colors, resulting in exceptionally true-to-life color images, low noise and high resolution that other sensors with optical low-pass filters cannot approach.
2.36 Million Dot OLED Electronic Viewfinder
The X-E1 also features an incredibly high resolution 2.36 million dot OLED electronic viewfinder for eye-level composition, as well as a 2.8″ 460K dot rear LCD monitor for composition and playback. The EVF has a double aspheric lens element that offers faithful reproduction of focus, exposure, white balance and film simulation effects and has a high contrast ratio of 1:5000. The LCD monitor has a special anti-reflective coating which reduces glare when viewing in bright sunlight and is water and stain resistant.
XF-18-55mm f/2.8-4 OIS Lens
The X-E1 kit comes with an XF-18-55mm f/2.8-4 OIS lens, which is Fuji’s first zoom lens made specifically for their X-series cameras. With a 35mm equivalency of 27.4-83.8mm, the lens covers true wide-angle to standard telephoto, perfect for all your day-to-day shooting needs. The lens is fast with a maximum aperture range of f/2.8-4 and provides 4-step optical image stabilization to reduce the effect of camera shake. Three aspherical elements reduce aberrations and provide for true light transmission and sharp imaging across the entire sensor.
