Fujifilm X-M1: Cooking Up Something For The Casual Shooter

It looks as if Fujifilm is fixin’ to release another mirrorless camera with old school aesthetics. The X-E1 already scratched that itch last year, but the X-M1 will do away with the electronic viewfinder and shutter-speed selector dial, making this a more casual shooter’s model. An adjustable LCD screen and Wi-Fi connectivity are also on board. The camera body will be available for $700. No word yet on a release date for the X-M1, but if that’s what you’re looking for, we can tell you that, uh, I dunno, Yellowstone 3D: America’s Greatest Wonder, for example, comes out tomorrow and is $13.49.

Fujifilm X100S: New Tech Inside Old Look

Keep your eyes on grandpa when he’s in the same room with the Fujifilm X100S ($1300). This camera looks like something he’ll warmly recall from his youth, but the technology inside it will leave the poor geezer’s head spinning. This fixed-focal-length camera features a new 16-megapixel APS-C size sensor and a maximum aperture of F2.0 on its ultra-wide-angle 23mm lens. Fujifilm also says the X100S has a blazing fast autofocus speed of just 0.08 seconds. Gramps can’t comprehend that!
