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.
The Fujifilm X-E2S is set to ship in both silver and black in early February for $700.
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 X70 is set to ship in February in both black and silver for $800.
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.
The Fujifilm XP90 is set to ship in February as well in blue, lime, orange and yellow for $230.
