Equipped with a Large APS-C Sensor for the Highest Image Quality. Achievement of Superb High Resolution, High Sensitivity & Impressive “Bokeh” Effect
The X-E1's sensor is the same high-performance 16 megapixel APS-C X-Trans CMOS found in the X Series flagship X-Pro1 model. Featuring Fujifilm's unique colour filter array with its highly random pixel arrangement, the X-Trans CMOS sensor eliminates the need for an optical low-pass filter, which is used in conventional systems to inhibit moiré at the expense of resolution. The innovative array lets the X-Trans CMOS sensor capture unfiltered light from the lens and produce unprecedented resolution. The uniquely random arrangement of the colour filter array is also highly effective in enhancing noise separation in high-sensitivity photography. Another advantage of the large APS-C sensor is the ability to create a beautiful “bokeh”effect – the aesthetic out-of-focus effect created when shooting with a shallow depth of field.
By combining its class-leading OLED electronic viewfinder with FUJIFILM's advanced optical technology, the X-E1 offers a bright, extra-wide, field of vision which can be seen at a glance.
Made in Japan, the X-E1 exudes a class and quality that can be seen from each of its components.
The X-E1 achieves extra quick response times comparable with those of DSLR cameras, ensuring you never miss a shot.
Full HD Movies with cinema-like image quality
Shoot Full HD movies (1920 x 1080) at 24fps, the same frame rate used for cinema films. In addition to using Monochrome or other Film Simulation modes to enhance your artistic expression, you can take full advantage of the combination of X-E1's large sensor and bright XF lenses to capture movies with a large and beautiful defocused “bokeh” background. Connect stereo microphones (commercially sold) to the microphone connector to record audio with enhanced clarity and presence.
The body is equipped with a microphone jack. Connect your stereo microphone (bought separately) to record audio with enhanced clarity and presence.
One press of the shutter captures 3 shots of the same scene at different exposures. AE bracketing can be set in 1/3, 2/3 and 1 EV steps.
ISO Sensitivity Bracketing
Based on a single exposure, this bracketing function automatically reproduces the scene as 3 images, each with a different ISO sensitivity and without changing the shutter speed and aperture, letting you capture the moment with varying degrees of brightness. Setting is possible in 1/3, 2/3 and 1 EV steps.
Add Artistry to Your Photographic Expression
In film cameras, multiple exposure is the photographic technique of superimposing one image on another by double exposing a single frame of film. Through advanced digital processing, X-E1 can simulate this technique, expanding your creative expression. Just select Multiple Exposure mode and take your first shot using either the EVF or LCD monitor. Next, while viewing the first image, you can frame and shoot the second exposure. This ability to precisely position and focus the second shot lets you not only “see” how the finished Multiple Exposure image will look, but also explore other creative photographic possibilities.
