Fujifilm's X-Pro1 Is a 16MP Mirrorless Beauty

By Brian Barrett on at

Of all the leaks that have trickled out in the pre-CES churn, there's maybe none prettier than Fujifilm's X-Pro1. And now we've got the full, official spec rundown, and it looks it's a beauty on the inside as well.

Lurking inside the X-Pro1's vintage-styled body is a 16MP APS-CMOS sensor, a new filter array, and Fuji's EXR processor technology. It's paired with three interchangeable Fujinon lenses—the XF18mmF2 R" (27mm equivalent) f/2.0, "XF 35mmF1.4 R" (53mm equivalent) f/1.4, and "XF60mmF2.4 R Macro" (90mm equivalent) F/2.4—that each have rounded blade edges for increased sharpness.

Other features? The X-Pro1 includes a gussied-up version of Fuji's Hybrid Viewfinder, which lets you switch between optical and electronic viewfinders with the flip of a switch. You can also manually set your focal distance and switch between viewfinder magnifications.

One note about the look: it's synthetic leather that we've been seeing in those recent leaks, which while more resilient for outdoor use could run the risk of feeling cheap.

The rig aims square at mid-to-high end DSLR market, and though the price hasn't been announced yet you can expect it to be in the high three digits. It'll be available in February, but we're hoping to get our hands on it much sooner than that.
