The Fujifilm XF1 is a 12-megapixel premimum compact with a 2/3-type sensor and a 25-100mm (eq.) f/1.8-4.9 lens with Optical Image Stabilisation. The camera’s EXR-CMOS sensor features Fujifilm’s three switchable sensor modes (SN - high ISO and low noise, DR - dynamic-range priority, and HR - resolution priority) which can be selected according to the subject. The quick read time of the CMOS sensor, coupled with the high-speed EXR processor, accelerates all operations - start-up in 0.55 seconds, focus acquisition in as little as 0.16 seconds, and minimum shot-to-shot time of 0.8 seconds. The Fujifilm XF1’s slim-line lens is constructed of 7 lens elements in 6 groups (four aspherical and three extra low dispersion), the first with a highly variable profile and a high refractive index, and the second an aspherical element with an extremely high refractive index. The Fujifilm XF1 will cost £399.00 in the UK. The Black version is exclusive to Jessops for two weeks from October 18th. All the versions are then generally released from Oct 29th with the Black and Tan versions available through the Fujifilm retail network, while the Red version will be exclusive to Dixons.
