With its X line of compact cameras, Fujifilm had targeted imaging enthusiasts who would pay a bit more for higher picture quality (and retro styling). Now the com is broadening its approach a bit with a smaller, lighter and more affordable model.
The new X-M1 compact system camera is Fujifilm’s third mirror-free interchangeable lens model in its well-received X series. It has the same 16-megapixel APS-C-sized X-Trans sensor used in the company’s X-Pro1 and X-E1, WiFi connectivity, and a 3-inch tilting display. It weighs 11.6 ounces and measures 4.6 x 2.6 x 1.5 inches — “about half the size of a traditional DSLR body,” Fuji adds.
The X-M1 ships with a new 16-50mm zoom lens for $800.
