A Little Gem Arrives! We have The new Fujifilm Camera In Today
It is tiny! Compared to my X-Pro1 camera it is surprisingly small and neat. You'll see the camera in hand with an optional part attached - the MHG-XT10 metal grip and arca-swiss-size rail. Without this, it is even smaller. What a great introduction this would be to the X-series lenses.
It is full featured, as you'll no doubt find from the reviews and rumours. You get the new Classic Chrome film setting and an entirely new focussing system in the viewfinder that uses variable areas full of multiple measuring points. The new electronics drive all the existing lenses and have sped up the 35mm f:1.4 and the 60mm f:2.4 lenses significantly. They snap in instead of swim.
There's an inbuilt flash just above the lens axis that pops up to a useful height . Of course the hot shoe also talks TTL to appropriate Fujifilm flashes.
Ergonomically it is a good mixture of external dial and front/back control wheel. Like the X-T1, there is an articulated LCD screen.
Just silver-finish in now. I believe black will come later in the year. So come down and shoot some pictures with it.
Bring your wallet.
