More specs and photos of the Fujifilm X-M1 have been leaked on the web ahead of the camera’s announcement, which is allegedly scheduled for June 25.
Fujifilm is rumored to hold a product launch event on June 25, when a couple of new cameras and lenses will be announced. An entry-level X-Trans shooter is purportedly coming alongside a low-end mirrorless camera without the X-Trans image sensor.
Fujifilm announcing two cameras and two lenses on June 25
According to inside sources, the Fujinon XF 27mm f/2.8 and XF 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 OIS lenses will also be revealed alongside the two devices.
The Fujifilm X-M1 has been leaked at the end of last week, along with photos and details about the camera. Additionally, the two aforementioned lenses have been spotted on the web, proving that the rumor mill has been right all along, as these details have made their way on the web a long time ago.
Fujifilm will offer the X-M1 in three colors, including brown
After last week’s leaks, the Fujifilm X-M1 camera has surfaced online once again, but this time in a brown color. The device will become available in silver and black flavors, too, just like the rumored Fujifilm X-E1, the camera which does not have an X-Trans sensor. However, potential X-M1 buyers will have access to the brown paint, as well.
New Fujifilm X-M1 specs appear on the web
Either way, the Fujifilm X-M1 specs list has just been leaked. The camera will feature a 16.3-megapixel X-Trans APS-C CMOS image sensor, 1/4000 and 30 seconds shutter speed range, ISO sensitivity between 200 and 6400 (can be extended to 100-25600), 3-inch tilting 920K-dot LCD screen, and 1920 x 1080 video recording at 30 frames per second.
According to inside sources, the X-M1 mirrorless shooter will come packed with built-in WiFi capabilities, allowing photographers to share images on smartphones and tablets immediately after taking them.
Fuji’s new device will be able to capture 5.6fps in continuous shooting mode for 10 consecutive times. Several buttons and dials will be available for photographers who prefer to manually input the shooting settings, though the company has improved the Auto technology, too.
A built-in flash is available for low-light scenarios, but a hot shoe mount is also there to support external flash guns. The camera has an SD / SDHC / SDXC card slot and it will weigh 330 grams with the battery and media card included.
Rumors say Fujifilm X-M1 release date is July 27
Fujifilm X-M1 release date is scheduled for July 27 in Japan and for a price of 75,000 yen / $762. For the time being, availability in the US and other markets has not been speculated, but the time frames should not be very different from the Japanese one.
The camera will be offered in a single lens kit with the 16-50mm glass and in a dual-lens bundle with both the 16-50mm and 27mm optics.
