Retro-style Fujifilm X-E2 camera unveiled

Xe2

Yesterday we saw the launch of the Panasonic Lumix GM1 and today we have another contender for the title of coolest retro camera, the Fujifilm X-E2.

This 1960s-inspired snapper an upgrade to the X-E1 and to be honest, doesn't look massively different to its predecessor. Not that we are complaining, the X-E1 is one of the coolest cameras around. But inside, it's a much more powerful thing.

It has a 16.3-megapixel X-Trans CMOS II sensor and EXR Processor II, along with an upgraded 3-inch 920,000-dot screen and Lens Modulation Optimiser technology so that processing is optimised for the lens, focal length and aperture you have chosen. It also offers fast start-up, continuous shooting at seven frames per second, enhanced autofocusing, 14-bit raw conversion and improved continuous focusing capability with AF tracking and auto exposure working between frames when shooting at 3fps.

Ok technical stuff out of the way, apart from saying that it also takes interchangeable lenses via the Fuji X-mount. If you want a camera that looks as good as it snaps, the Fuji X-E2 will be available from November in silver or black, selling for £799 body only or £1199.99 with its 18-55mm kit lens.
