The X-E2, which is an upgrade to the Fujifilm X-E1, was announced across the world in October last year and it will be available in India in solid black and two-tone black and silver body.

The camera will be priced at Rs 76,999 for the body only and it will cost another Rs 1,09,999 along with the XF 18-55mm kit lens.

Fujifilm’s X-E2 is a mirror-less interchangeable lens camera which features a 16.3 MP APS-C X-Trans CMOS II sensor along with an autofocus time, which has been claimed to be at 0.08 seconds.

The camera’s sensor uses an original colour filter array along with a randomized pixel generator which removes the utility of an Optical Low Pass Filter (OLPF) which results in lessening of resolution.

The X-E2 also has the first Lens Modulation Optimizer (LMO) for ILCs, which basically uses Fujifilm’s knowledge of each lens’ characteristic to adjust the in-camera processing and sharpening in order to compensate for diffraction and lens aberrations.

The idea behind bringing this technology is to produce sharper JPEG images while shooting at the largest or even smallest aperture.

When it comes to handling, the Fujifilm X-E2 brings into application a fusion of manually adjusted aperture ring along with a shutter speed dial on the camera’s top.

The exposure compensation goes from +/- 3EV and the user can customize up to four buttons to his preferred functions. Besides, the X-E2 also sports a 2.36-million dot OLED viewfinder and has a 3-inch 1.04-million dot LCD screen.

This latest Fujifilm product has a startup time of 0.5 seconds and a minimal shutter lag of 0.05 seconds and high-speed continuous shooting of 7.0 FPS.

The X-E2 also sports the DSI technology which enables it to go for better manual focus better and gives the camera an ability to shoot 60 FPS 1080 p videos.

Focus Peaking Highlight, which highlights the outline in high contrast areas of the subject during focusing, provides further assistance to the user achieve better and finer sharp shots.

The camera also comes with a built-in Wi-Fi which allows the user to transfer images and one can also download the Fujifilm Camera App for iOS and Android to transfer up to 30 pictures at a time.

Coming at Rs 1,09,990 along with the kit lens, the Fujifilm X-E2 looks positioned clearly at enthusiasts and professionals.
