5/28/2012 5:20:54 PM

Fujifilm has become the biggest company who released the latest Compact System Camera (CSC) with the interchangeable lenses, with the X-Mount lent system and X-Pro1 camera.

Its appearance and concept is the same with the current models from its tough rivals such as Panasonic, Sony, and Olympus. The mirrorless system makes its body much smaller than DSLR, but the same quality images.

Fujifilm stated that the X-Trans sensor of 16MB CMOS was able to create the higher resolution images much more than that of APS-C, which was used in most of DSLR, and even better than some full-frame models.

The sensor’s re-design results in the quality improvement and helps eliminating the need of the low-pass filter. Above the tradition sensor, the low-pass filter reduces moiré noise and false color information generated but it can degrade the resolution.

The X-Trans sensor is inspired from the random grain appeared in film. It uses RGB pixels in the 6x6 pixel sets with high randomness. The random arrangement of RGB pixels eliminates the causes for moiré noise and false color. With an R, G and B pixel in a vertical and horizontal set, the false color effect will be decreased significantly. In order to solve these 6x6 pixel sets, Fujifilm used an extremely powerful processor, EXR Processor Pro.

Fujifilm also confirmed that its frame design enables it to quality boost. The distance in the back of 17.7mm puts the rear lens near the sensor, which means much more light coming to the sensor, enhances higher resolution to its corners.

There are 3 types of new premium lens to accompany with the camera: XF 18mmF2  (equivalent to 27mm) f/2.0, XF 35mmF1.4 R (equivalent to 53mm) f/1.4, and XF60mmF2.4 R Macro (equivalent to 90mmm) f/2.4, all are designed to be fast and bright.

All lenses transmit the focal length, F-number, angle of incidence and other further details, which enable the camera to process better images. Fujifilm also has the intention of introducing zoom lenses and wide angle 14mm lenses in the future.

Besides, it can allow the users to switch between the optical and digital modes. The former is brighter and has lowest shutter lag while the latter displays more information, such as exposure and depth of indicators. 

The switching into the automatically optical modes adjusts the magnification of the viewfinder in order to go well with the lenses’ focal length because it isn’t a through-the-lens system, but definitely a separate set of optics.

The digital viewfinder has the 1.44 million pixel display screen, and the rear LCD also goes with a 1.23 million pixel screen; therefore, both of them offer the sharp images.

The camera body is well-designed while it is a little bit bulky beyond our expectation, especially in comparison with those of its competitors. However, it is still remarkably smaller than that of DSLR.

In a nutshell, Fujifilm X-Pro1 is not cheap at all. The final price hasn’t been revealed yet but the camera body may set you back at approximately $1700, while the lense costs about $650 for each. Besides, the release day hasn’t been informed yet.
