Two months left and it's going to be my birthday! I wouldn't mind getting one of these camera from Fujifilm. I've been wanting to invest in a camera for blogging, and I think FUJIFILM is calling me. Lol! But seriously, I really, really, REALLY wanted one! (paging hubby! haha).
Fujifilm recently launch their new line of cameras that all photo enthusiast will love! I know our mobile phones somewhat became our alternative in taking pictures. But it is still a phone camera. I noticed that even how pretty the pic is in my phone, but when I transferred it in my laptop to upload in my blog, it became different. It lacks sharpness and color. And I realized, a camera is still a camera. Whether our mobile camera is 16mp already, it will never be "as pretty" compared to real camera. That's why I am really convince to invest in good, quality camera.
During the event and before the launch of new cameras, Fujifilm displayed their other models.
The FUJIFILM X-A2 allows you to capture important moments perfectly with the superb image quality Fujifilm's X Series is famous for. Self-portraits, landscapes, macro shots, low-light or flash photography.

And finally, the long wait is over! FUJIFILM, one of the world’s best regarded camera brands unveils two new powerful and superior camera lines only days after their Japan launch – FUJIFILM X-Pro2 premium interchangeable lens camera and the more compact FUJIFILM X70. The worldwide launch was led by FUJIFILM Corporation President Shigehiro Nakajima and FUJIFILM executives in Tokyo, Japan.
FUJIFILM X-Pro2 also has a newly developed 24.3MP X-Trans CMOS III sensor and high-performance X Processor Pro image processing engine that can deliver stunning images with a perceived resolution far greater than the actual number of pixels used.This camera is also built with magnesium alloy and is tightly sealed in its 61 points. It's dust-proof, splash-proof and capable of operating in temperatures as low as 10°C. The X-Pro2 also has dual SD card slots which mean more preferable room for your images.It’s also got 4x the processing speed of conventional image processing engines so aside from the increased resolution, you’ll get optimum write speeds, faster start-up time to capture those magical moments and high speed continuous shooting speedsin sports and action shots.
Aside from the powerhouse X-Pro2, Fujifilm is also proud to announce the release of FUJIFILM X70. The best option in a compact design, the X70 is without precedent, the first of its kind in a new line. FUJIFILM X70 is the first X-Series model to offer a touchscreen display that rotates 180 degrees. This would enable users to shoot from various angles and perfect those warranted selfies. The camera also comes with a Fujinon18.5mm F2.8 lens which would be splendid for group shots or spectacular landscapes, seascapes and sunsets adept for the Philippine setting.
The X70 weighs approximately 340 grams and is the lightest X-Series camera with an APS-C sized sensor. It comes with a well-designed milled aluminum exposure compensation and shutter speed dials which makes it so easy to quickly access key features and the aperture and focusing rings are made from the same material to keep the weight down. Apertures can be changed in 1/3 or 1 stop increments, plus the focusing ring doubles up as a control ring for quick access to a range of functions.
FUJIFILM X70 is a pocket-sized wonder that delivers high quality images that is unique to X-Series models. The unparalleled color reproduction technology and the unique Lens Modulation Optimizer (LMO) image processing technology are a result of FUJIFILM’s 80 years of experience and expertise in photographic technology research. Its impressive hardware automatically corrects optical defects such as diffraction to achieve striking sharpness and realistic three-dimensional effect.The on sensor phase detection AF works ultra-fastat 0.1 second and the high-speed proprietary EXR Processor II image processor makes the camera start up in just 0.5sec. The shutter time lag is almost negligible at 0.01sec and gets a shooting interval of 0.5 seconds. FUJIFILM X70 is unbelievably fast, powerful and exceptionally compact.
Meanwhile, the new FUJINON XF100-400mm F4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR expands the range to a super telephoto option. The FUJINON XF100-400mmF4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR is a super telephoto zoom lens that covers a 35mm focal length equivalent of 152-609mm. The high performance optical construction of 21 elements in 14 groups includes five ED lenses and one Super ED lens to help reduce chromatic aberration that often occurs in telephoto lenses.
As a result, it delivers the highest image quality in its class. The lens has been designed for handheld shooting with a 5.0-stop* image stabilization system and weighs less than 1.4kg. Linear motor for fast autofocusing makes it perfect for shooting fast-moving subjects including aircraft and motorsports.
The lens is also both water and dust resistant and can operate in temperatures as low as -10°C, so it is suitable for use in a wide range of outdoor shooting conditions. A fluorine coating has also been applied to the front lens element to repel water and dirt, further improving the toughness of lens.
Truly, FUJIFILM continues to make photography fun and enjoyable. I would love to have one of these, making memories that will last for years!
Congratulations Fujifilm on the launch!
