Fujifilm X-M1 compact system camera launched

Fujifilm has unveiled the X-M1 compact system camera, which uses the same X-Tans CMOS sensor as the Fujifilm X-Pro1

Fujifilm has released the X-M1, an entry-level compact system camera, which uses the highly acclaimed 16.3 megapixel APS-C X-Trans CMOS Sensor as the Fujifilm X-Pro1 and X-E1.

So what exactly does that mean? Well, essentially the X-M1 is a cheaper, lighter and eye-catching compact camera packing a very high-end sensor that users can toggle the sensitivity of allowing for crystal clear images shot in low-light and even at night.

The Fujifilm X-M1 is an interchangable lense camera that can fit together with any of Fujifilm's X-mounted lenses. It also boasts a three-inch tilthing LCD screen on the rear-panel.

The X-M1 is has a built-in flash, horseshoe connector and is Wi-Fi enabled allowing users to share snaps between devices via apps on both the iOS and Android operating systems.

The camera is also capable of filmining in Full HD 1,920 x 1,080 video at 30 frames per second. Users can also use an array of visual tweaks with their work such as background blurring and monochrome filming. It's also packaged up in a gorgeously retro casing that comes in black, silver and tan brown.

The X-M1 is available as a kit along with a XC16-50mm/3.5-5.6 for the princely sum of £679.99 at the end of this coming July.
