Photography enthusiasts and professionals rejoice! Fujifil Philippines recently launched their newest line of digital cameras to the country. The event was graced by Fujifilm PH’s top officials, the designer of the X100 series Mr. Hiroshi Kawahara, world renowned street photographers Vineet and Rohit Vohra, and local X-Photographers Rommel Bundalian, Randall Cipriano, Niko Villegas, Jan Gonzales and Lito Sy.
The X30 features the newly developed Real Time Viewfinder, a large 2/3 inch 12MP X-Trans CMOS II sensor, an EXR Processor II image processing engine, and their new Classic Chrome film simulation mode. Classic Chrome mode attempts to reproduce accurate true to life colors, as opposed to the over saturated look of most camera’s of this class. Other additions include a new control ring along with extra dials and function buttons, and a tilting 3.0 inch 920K dot LCD screen. Battery performance has also been improved to approximately 470 photos in a single charge.
The newest member of the popular X100 series, the digital compact camera comes with the world’s first electronic rangefinder. The X100T comes with an APS-C sized 16MP X-Trans CMOS II sensor, an EXR Processor II image processing engine, a Fujinon 23mm F2 lens, and a 3 inch 1.04m dot rear LCD. The newest addition to their film simulation mode, Classic Chrome, was also included.
Fujifilm X-T1 Graphite Silver Edition
The X-T1 Graphite Silver Edition is a new color variant of the Fujifilm X-T1 premium mirrorless camera. Since the launch of the X-T1, it has received high praise from photography enthusiasts and professional photographers for its features, Real Time Viewfinder, and dust and weather resistant body.
Of the cameras launched, I am personally drawn towards the X30. I like it’s unassuming classic design and the magnesium alloy body. The X100T is good as well, and that prime lens is very nice but it could limit its usage as a multipurpose everyday camera.
The Fujifilm X30 (P31,990) ,the X100T (P64,990) and the X-T1 are now locally available.
