More information about the upcoming two Fujifilm cameras, which are rumored to be introduced this summer, has been unearthed by sources familiar with the matter.
Recently, the grapevine has started talking about two supposed Fujifilm cameras. Both of them are said to be really cheap and they will consist of an entry-level shooter with an X-Trans image sensor and another low-end mirrorless camera without an X-Trans sensor.
The two mirrorless cameras will be compatible with the X-mount and the entire lineup of lenses. However, only one of them will feature that critically-acclaimed X-Trans sensor.
Entry-level Fujifilm X-Trans camera will feature a tilting screen
Since consumers have been asking for a cheap X-Trans shooter, Fujifilm is finally ready to deliver. According to an inside source, the device will not feature an integrated viewfinder, instead relying on external VFs. Nevertheless, the shooter will employ a tilting screen.
Currently, the resolution and the size of the display remain unknown, but sources should reveal more details as we are getting closer to the product announcement event.
Fujifilm shooter without X-Trans image sensor will pack a different APS-C sensor than that of the X100 camera
It has already been determined that the second camera will feature an APS-C sensor, just like the aforementioned one. Despite that, it will not be the X-Trans one, nor the one found in the Fujifilm X100, like previously believed.
The origin of the image sensor is a secret, but further information will become available anytime soon, as stated above.
Fujifilm X-A1 and X-M1 are the possible retail names
The names of the cameras are also being speculated. It appears that the entry-level Fujifilm X-Trans camera will be called X-A1, while the one without an X-Trans sensor will become available in retail under the name X-M1.
These are all unconfirmed reports, just like the last one, which suggested that the X-Trans shooter will be offered along with multiple lens kits. One bundle will include the 18-55mm lens, the second a 27mm pancake, while the third will provide two lenses, that is the 18-55mm and 55-200mm lenses.
