Fujifilm X-E3 Rangefinder Mirrorless Compact Camera Announced

Fujifilm X-E3 Rangefinder Mirrorless Compact Camera Announced”

Notably, the X-E3 is also the first X Series model to feature Bluetooth connectivity, allowing you to pair the camera with a smartphone to transfer pictures on-the-go.

The rest of the specs nearly read like the list for the X-Pro2, including the 24.3 megapixel X-Trans CMOS III sensor, the X-Processor Pro image processor, an ISO range of 200 to 12800, and the capability to shoot in 4K 30p.

The other smartphone-related feature is the addition of Bluetooth Low Energy or Bluetooth LE. It also enables various gesture controls like flick and pinch zoom.

The form factor makes it a ideal companion for everyday use and travel photography.

Fujifilm X-E2 now has a successor in the form of the X-E3. At least the shutter speed and exposure dials are still there at the top. The X-E3 is also equipped with an Auto mode selector lever for selecting the fully-automatic Advanced SR Auto mode where the camera chooses the optimum settings for a given scene.

Autofocus has also been overhauled, with the X-E3 sporting an updated algorithm to deliver a fast AF speed of 0.06 seconds - we're guessing with the same 77 AF point arrangement as the X-E2S, although this hasn't been confirmed.

A new image recognition algorithm in the camera gives a boost to the X-E3's phase detection autofocus by improving the tracking of moving subjects. Fuji says the new system can track subjects that are half the size or moving twice as fast now compared to previous cameras. And it's the smallest X-series model with a viewfinder in Fuji's range.

The LCD monitor uses a high-resolution 1.04M dot, 3.0-inch static touchscreen panel display. Toucn can be used to select focus area and focus on specific points, swipe and scroll through photos during playback, enlarge photos by double-tapping, drag photos around once enlarged, and resize images during playback by pinching in and out.

As with other new X models, you can shoot video at 4K, 30fps with a 10-minute continuous recording time. You'll also be able to record video using the array of Film Simulation modes the X-E3 features, while you can output recorded video to an external monitor, via the HDMI port, and input audio via an external microphone. Fujifilm also unveiled a new macro lens, the XF80mm f/2.8 R LM OIS, its "first 1.0x magnification mid-telephoto macro lens".
