Fujifilm’s selection of mirrorless cameras increases with the new X-M1, which joins the X-Pro1 and the X-E1, featuring the lack of a viewfinder in favor of a smaller size. Unlike its bigger sisters, this new model has become the first camera of this kind to lack a hybrid or digital viewfinder.
Oriented to a wider public and with a Price that –we think- will also be more affordable, the X-M1 features the X-Trans 16-megapixel sensor, and the APS-C size their bigger sisters feature. Despite this, its reduced size and weight (about 330 grams) is evident, especially if you compare it with the previous model.
The design –this is Fujifilm after all- follows the same line of this kind of mirrorless models, with two control dials, a mode selector wheel and different commands to quickly access the ost habitual functions.
Capable of shooting at 5.6 fps in burst mode, the X-M1 features an integrated flash, a sensitivity of up to 25.600 ISO and a shutter speed of up to 1/4.000 of a second.
It also features a 3-inch, 920k-pixel resolution screen, as well as Wi-Fi connectivity to send our pictures wirelessly to a tablet or smart phone.
The X-M1 is also available in all black finish and a faux fur version. Upstairs with the new 16-50 mm zoom.
Also, it can record Full HD video (1920 x 1080 at 30 fps) and a vast array of creative filters, and the possibility to process RAW files in the camera itself.
It is available in black, Brown and silver. The X-M1 has been presented alongside the new XC 16-50 mm f3.5-5.6 OIS zoom, which used with this camera offers am angle of view of 24-76 millimeters.
