While the X-Pro2 took the spotlight at Fujifilm’s keynote presentation, three other cameras also made their official debuts: the X-E2S, X70 and XP90.
Below we’ll take a look at each one and what they bring to the table.
First up is the Fujifilm X-E2S, a new interchangeable lens mirrorless camera designed to replace Fujifilm’s current X-E2 camera. At the heart of this new camera is a 16.3-megapixel X-Trans II CMOS Sensor, which features Fujifilm’s signature randomized pixel pattern to remove the need for a low-pass filter, resulting in higher image sharpness.
Another benefit of the new sensor is improved high-IS performance,e with the maximum expandable ISO topping out at 51,200, one stop more than its predecessor.
One of the key components of the X-E2S is its speed. Startup time is only 0.5 seconds, with a shutter lag of only 0.05 seconds. Another component of its speed is the improved autofocus system which features a 49-point Single Point mode and Wide/Tracking modes designed for moving subjects that’s capable of utilizing a 77-point area.
Design-wise, little has changed. Signature to Fujifilm’s X-series, the camera features a rangefinder-inspired design and a similar button scheme to its predecessor.
For those of you not worried about interchangeable lenses, Fujifilm didn’t leave you behind. Their newest fixed-lens model is the X70, a smaller, wider and less expensive version of the X100. Not only is it Fujifilm’s first non-X100-series to have an APS-C sensor, it’s also the first Fujifilm camera to feature a tilting touchscreen.
Designed around the same 16.3-megapixel APS-C X-Trans CMOS II sensor as the X100T, the X70 features a built-in Fujinon 18.5mm f/2.8 lens, roughly equivalent to a 28mm lens on a full-frame camera. Despite an identical sensor, the camera itself is a fair bit smaller, making it the smallest camera in Fujifilm’s line-up to contain an APS-C-sized sensor.
As impressive as its size is though, the leading feature is the 3.0-inch 1.04 million dot tilting touchscreen LCD on the back of the camera, which is capable of tilting a complete 180º.
The last camera in Fujifilm’s lineup is the XP90, Fujifilm’s latest rugged camera. Waterproof up to 50 feet, shock-proof from 5.8 feet, freeze-proof to 14ºF and dust-proof, this point-and-shoot is ready for some extreme conditions. Inside the camera is a 16.4-megapixel 1/2.3″ CMOS sensor, with a 5x 28–140mm (35mm equivalent) lens attached in front of it.
It features built-in WiFi connectivity, a 3-inch LCD display on the back and can record video at up to 480 frames per second, as well as capture full 360º Motion Panoramas.
