FUJIFILM Corporation (President: Shigehiro Nakajima) is proud to announce the second X series interchangeable lens camera FUJIFILM X-E1 has won the “photokina STAR 2012” award sponsored by PHOTO PRESSE and “digit!” magazines traditionally awarded at Photokina. The photokina STAR award honors products and concepts that stand out for their innovative nature and their trendsetting technologies.
Following hot on the heels of the highly acclaimed FUJIFILM X-Pro1, the X-E1 boasts the same 16 megapixel APS-C X-Trans CMOS Sensor with top-class OLED electronic viewfinder, a smaller body with built-in flash and the same X mount for the FUJINON XF lens series. With its convenient portable size and fast autofocus speed with the kit zoom lens XF18-55mmF2.8-4 R LM OIS, the X-E1 promises to be an exciting addition to the X series range. Due to hit the market in autumn this year, and available in two variations Silver and Black, the attractive classical design of the X-E1 interchangeable lens camera will have wide appeal.
