2.36M-dot OLED Viewfinder

2.36M-dot Organic EL Panel
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 colour expression of OLED technology and high contrast ratio of 1:5000* reflect exposure, white balance and film simulation settings with high fidelity, letting you confirm changes in real time.

FUJIFILM Optical Technology
Adopting an optical structure of two glass lenses and a double aspherical lens, the viewfinder provides a comfortable and natural view of the entire scene with an Horizontal apparent field of view of 25°. FUJIFILM's optical engineers have achieved a distortion-free view with astounding edge-to-edge clarity and maintained an excellent field of vision even if the photographer's eye position shifts.

X-Trans CMOS Sensor

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 colour 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 colour 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.

Quick Response

The X-E1 achieves quick response compatible with DSLR cameras thereby enabling you to never miss a shot.

After turning OFF the power, the X-E1 enters a “sleep” mode (for a maximum of 24 minutes).
If the power is turned ON during this time, the X-E1 “wakes up” instantly, reducing the normal startup time from 1.0 sec. to approx. 0.5 sec. ready for you to frame and capture the moment.

The shutter time lag is only 0.05 sec, so you can capture the precise instant you wish to and enjoy a comfortable shooting experience.

The highly agile linear motor in the XF18-55mm lens combined with the high-speed signal readout of the X-Trans CMOS sensor and the EXR Processor Pro, achieves a huge leap in AF speed and precision performance.
Contrast detection AF in the X-E1 brings your subject in to sharp focus in as little as 0.1sec. * so you'll never miss a shot.

* Fujifilm research

Shoot up to 6 frames per second with high-speed continuous shooting.
Capture a series of exposures of moving subjects and other challenging photographic scenes and later select the best shot.

Built-in Flash

The built-in flash corresponds to GN7*.
You can make your subject stand out using the flash, such as the daytime synchro when the sun is in front of you or the capture light when photographing people.
By combining the superior highly sensitive performance of the X-E1 with highly sensitive settings you can achieve high resolution with little noise by compensating for the amount of light present.
From assist lamps to full flash the X-E1 will broaden the horizon of your photography.
