FUJIFILM has added a new digital camera to its flagship X-Series product line called FUJIFILM XF1. The company has used newly developed FUJINON F1.8 wide angle lens in the camera. With this newly developed lens, the XF1’s 4x manual zoom and a large 2/3-inch 12 Megapixel EXR CMOS sensor are able to deliver extraordinary image quality. The company hopes that its latest XF1 digital camera will introduce the X-Series line in new ways to digital camera fans.
Initially, the company will release three new designs – a dimpled synthetic black leather, a smooth synthetic tan leather and an elegant synthetic red leather.
Go Miyazaki, president and chief operating officer, FUJIFILM North America Corporation said, “The FUJIFILM X-Series is known by photographers for their outstanding image quality, precision build and stellar performance, and the FUJIFILM XF1 lives up to that reputation, while adding a new level of portability and style with its unique retractable F1.8 manual zoom lens along with lightweight and durable aluminum body covered in synthetic leather for a bold, retro look.”
