Fujifilm X-M1 Specs & Overview

Listen to this article

Several rumours have surrounded Fujifilm since last month and they were all about a new entry-level mirrorless camera said to be coming from the X Series. Now a number of leaked images have more or less confirmed that the rumours are true. The photos show Fujifilm’s X-M1, the company’s latest interchangeable-lens camera.

The X-M1 is reported to be a more affordable, entry-level iteration from the company’s well-known X-series line. Based on the photos, the X-M1 appears to be look eerily like the X-E1, except that it doesn’t have a viewfinder and has an articulating display. The control panel seems to have been simplified, which is not surprising given that this is an entry-level device. Aside from those minor differences, the X-M1 is reported to still have the same 16mp X-Trans sensor carried by the X-E1 and X-Pro1 and still uses the same high-quality Fuji lenses.

The leaked photos include pictures of the new 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 kit lens and the 27mm f/2.8 pancake lens. The former is a cheaper option to the 18-55 f/2.8-4.0 zoom lenses that Fuji cameras have while the latter is a good unobtrusive, portable lens option.

All signs point to the X-M1 being a wonderful addition to Fujifilm’s line of high performing cameras. The company’s X-series of mirror less cameras give crisp image quality and powerful controls.

Fuji hasn’t made any formal announcement on when the X-M1 will hit the market or how much it would cost. However, analysts have pegged the X-M1 to be in the range of $600 (BHD 230).
