Fujifilm has added a new ultra-compact camera to its range of mirrorless X Series cameras.
Like its bigger brethren, the X-E3 features Fujifilm’s X-Trans CMOS III APS-C sensor and X-Processor image processing engine for great image quality and impressive high ISO performance. The high-speed processing engine makes the camera very responsive with a 0.4sec start-up time, shutter lag of a mere 0.05sec and 5fps live view shooting.
Autofocus is handled by a large phase detection area with an improved algorithm for super-fast accurate AF even with moving subjects.
The compact body features an OLED viewfinder as well as a 3in, 1040K dot monitor, which has touch functionality including for focusing, shooting and image review.
It is also the first X-series camera to use Bluetooth for power efficient image sharing possibilities.
The X-E3 will be available in silver or black from 28 September at a price of £849 body only, £1149 with the 23mm f/2 or £1249 with the 18-55mm f/2.8-4 lens.
Of course the X-E3 is fully compatible with Fujifilm’s huge lens collection, which has grown by one with the announcement of the XF80mm f/2.8 LM OIS WR Macro, which you can find out more by clicking here.
