Fujifilm X-E2S Mirrorless Digital Camera

The Fujifilm X-E2S Mirrorless Digital Camera available in black or silver features a 16.3mp, APS-C, X-Trans CMOS II sensor with an EXR Processor II to provide high quality images and outstanding camera performance. The sensor and processor combined delivers a native sensitivity range from ISO 200 thru 6400, which may be expanded further to ISO 100 thru 51200. Fujifilm's proprietary X-Trans sensor makes use of a unique randomized pixel array as a way to avoid the use of a optical low-pass filter which reduces resolution, and can provide images with the ultimate in sharpness and clarity. This imaging system takes advantage of the Intelligent Hybrid AF system, which makes use of both contrast- and phase-detection functions to quickly and accurately acquire focus. Enhanced manual focusing capabilities are also an outcome of these technologies; Digital Split Image along with Focus Highlight Peaking are a pair of methods to quickly and precisely obtain focus. The EXR Processor II also brings about fast performance speeds to every aspect of the camera, ranging from fast startup and accomplishes shutter lag times to a brisk 7 fps continuous shooting rate.

Both an OLED 2,360k-dot electronic viewfinder and a LCD 3.0" 1,040k-dot screen are available for image monitoring, review, along with menu navigation. The camera design extends this versatility through the use of manual, physical control dials on the camera's top plate as well as featuring seven different customizable buttons plus a Q Menu button for hastened access to some of the most beneficial settings. This control scheme additionally enables an intuitive, included Wi-Fi system allowing direct sharing of images for instant online sharing.

Full 1080p HD movie capture using multiple frame rates is possible while a 2.5mm microphone input grants the use of an available external microphone for enhanced audio quality when recording. Full-time continuous focusing is available while capturing video, as well as the use of Film Simulation functions. Film Simulation functions make use of Fujifilm's history of creating both negative and slide films and let you apply those film characteristics to your digital images to better handle the look you desire.

Also included with the X-E2S is the 18-55mm f/2.8-4 R LM XF OIS lens; a standard zoom lens delivering a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 27 thru 84mm, handling wide-angle thru portrait-length ratios. This lens features optical image stabilization to diminish the appearance of camera shake to take advantage of shooting with with longer shutter speeds or increased focal lengths and a linear motor-drive AF system delivers fast, smooth focusing capabilities.
