After first making a blip on gearheads' radar a few weeks ago, the retro-styled Fujifilm X-E1 mirrorless camera is now official. This restyled compact camera comes in two styles, an all-black and a two-tone black and silver, that boasts a 16.3-megapixel APS-C X-Trans CMOS sensor seen in the X-Pro1, which also supports any X-Mount interchangeable lens. The X-E1 also includes a built-in pop-up TTL flash, has a 100-25600 ISO range, and sports a built-in RAW converter that includes film simulation modes, including: Velvia, ASTIA, PROVIA, Monochrome, Sepia, PRO Neg.Std & PRO Neg.Hi. Fujifilm also states that the X-E1 can take up to 350 shots per charge. When it releases this November in the US, the X-E1 will be set you back $1,000 just for the body and around $1,400 for a kit version with the new 18-55mm f/2.8-4 OIS lens. European availability and pricing have yet to be confirmed.
