This kit includes the Fujifilm X-E1 Digital Camera Body with two lenses: a Fujinon XF18-55mmF2.8-4 R LM OIS and XF 14mm F2.8 R.
This compact, rangefinder-style digital camera makes a great travel companion for any serious photo enthusiast. The X-E1’s 16.3-megapixel APS-C sensor and EXR Pro image processor are the same as its bigger brother X-Pro1’s, yet it is housed in a smaller body due to the absence of an optical viewfinder. However its electronic viewfinder utilizes a 2.36M dot OLED, which is an improvement over the X-Pro1.
In terms of performance, the X-E1 features an ISO range of 100 – 6400 (expandable to 25,600 for JPEG only), Full HD movie recording with stereo mic, a 2.5mm stereo mic socket and compatibility with wired remote control units. It also has a 2.8" LCD, and a built-in pop-up flash.
This kit includes a bright and compact XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 R OIS LM Fujinon X-mount lens that allows for plenty of photographic flexibility and optimizes low-light shooting. Its LM designation indicates it uses a Linear Motor focusing system, which is both fast and quiet, which is particularly beneficial when shooting movies. The X-E1 also accepts all Fujinon X-mount lenses.
From the Manufacturer:
The compact X-E1 is engineered to deliver extraordinary image quality. It starts with Fuji Film's proprietary 16.3 APS-C X-Trans 2/3” CMOS sensor whose unique pixel array is designed to deliver unsurpassed image resolution and color accuracy. The X-EQ Camera Kit comes with a new bright, high-definition 18-55 mm F2.8-F4 Fujinon X-mount lens that allows photographic flexibility, optimizes low-light shooting. The X-E1 delivers high performance auto-focusing and is everything you need in one compact, beautiful camera system.
X-Trans CMOS Sensor-Enabling high quality imaging: The X-E1's sensor adopts the same high-performance 16M X-Trans CMOS found in the X Series flagship X-Pro1 model. Featuring an originally developed color filter array with a highly random pixel arrangement, its X-Trans CMOS sensor eliminates the need for an optical low-pass filter, which is used in conventional systems to inhibit moiré at the expense of resolution. The innovative array lets the X-Trans CMOS sensor capture unfiltered light from the lens and produce unprecedented resolution. The unique random arrangement of the color filter array is also highly effective in enhancing noise separation in high-sensitivity photography. Another advantage of the large APS-C sensor is the ability to create a beautiful “bokeh” effect - the aesthetic out-of-focus effect created when shooting with a shallow depth of field.
High Definition and High-luminance 2.36 M-dot "OLED electronic viewfinder:" By combining the best “OLED electronic viewfinder” in its class with Fuji Film's original optical technology the X-E1 offers a bright, wide field of vision of which its entirety can be seen at a glance. With approx. 2.36M dots of resolution and 100% coverage, the X-E1 display panel provides incredible detail to perfectly frame and focus your shots. The rich color expression of OLED technology and high contrast ratio of 1:5000 reflect exposure, white balance and film simulation settings with high fidelity, let you confirm changes in real time.
Innovative Design: The X-E1 employs numbered dials for aperture, shutter speed and exposure compensation and is equipped with a viewfinder that allows you to select your composition. The design of the X-E1 resembles the cameras of the film age, and there is wisdom that has been passed down behind it. This gives the X-E1 commonality that transcends the ages. The X-E1 is designed to enable you to “quickly” capture that moment you wish to document.
