FUJIFILM Corporation (President: Shigehiro Nakajima)is proud to announce the launch of the FUJIFILM X-E2S, the latest premium mirrorless camera to join the world-renowned X-Series. The X-E2S has a durable, compact and lightweight body with a Real-Time Viewfinder that offers a large display magnification of 0.62x1 and an electronic viewfinder with the world's shortest display time lag2 of 0.005 seconds. It also comes equipped with an AF system that excels at capturing moving subjects. The new X-E2S model inherits the functionality and rangefinder-style design of the original X-E2, and adds new features including an improved grip, an electronic shutter and a more intuitive GUI to enhance the user experience.
Key benefits of the X-E2S
(1)Real-Time Viewfinder in a rangefinder-style model
The 2.36 million-dot organic EL display and dedicated viewfinder lens enables the X-E2S to offer a display magnification of 0.62x with a clear and high-definition viewfinder screen. In addition, the world's shortest display time lag of just 0.005 seconds ensures photographers can capture every shooting opportunity while looking at the live view through the viewfinder.
(2)Compact and lightweight body with improved handling and optimised grip
Popular features of the X-E2 including top-plate dials and a compact and lightweight body weighing just 350g have been transferred to the X-E2S. In addition, the optimised shape of the grip enables users to change settings quickly while holding the camera. The seven function buttons on the top and back of the body can be customised to the user’s needs. The Auto Mode Switch provides the function of the fully automatic Advanced SR Auto mode which recognises the scene type automatically and optimises settings for the best possible photograph.
(3)APS-C X-TransTM3 CMOS II sensor with built-in phase detection AF and EXR Processor II image processing engine combine to deliver superb results
The camera’s phase detection AF enables the X-E2S to deliver a speedy performance with autofocusing in as little as 0.06 seconds4, a start-up time of 0.5 seconds5, shutter time lag of 0.05 seconds and a shooting interval of 0.5 seconds6. With Fujifilm’s unique sensor technology developed through many years of research and development of photographic films, the X-E2S delivers stunning results.
(4)New AF system for capturing moving subjects
The new AF system in the X-E2S adds the new Zone and Wide/Tracking options to the existing Single Point mode to focus on one of 49 points for fast and precise focusing. The new modes offer a vastly improved focusing performance on moving subjects across the 77-point AF area.
(5)A comprehensive line-up of 21 high-performance FUJINON X-mount lenses, covering ultra-wide-angle to super telephoto options
The latest digital technologies have been used to develop X-mount lenses, which offer high-precision optical designs for the best possible image quality. Including the FUJINON XF100-400mm F4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR announced today, the XF line-up has been expanded to 21 lenses, all of which deliver incredible definition when used with the X-E2S.
Key features of the FUJIFILM X-E2S
(1)Compact, rangefinder-style and lightweight body features improved grip and dials for easy operation
(3)The X-TransTM CMOS II Sensor and EXR Processor II engine combine to deliver outstanding image quality and high-speed performance
The camera features Fujifilm’s APS-C 16.3 megapixel X-Trans™ CMOS II sensor. Its unique, random colour filter array reduces moiré and false colours without using an optical low pass filter which compromises image quality. The elimination of the low pass filter provides a greater amount of light reaches the sensor. Combined with the EXR Processor II image processor, the sensor delivers outstanding resolution and low noise.

(5)A comprehensive line-up of 21 FUJINON X-mount lenses, covering ultra-wide-angle to super telephoto options
The latest digital technologies have been used to develop X-mount lenses, which offer high-precision optical design to deliver the highest possible image quality. The lenses are designed to achieve edge-to-edge definition across the entire frame and offer the brightest possible maximum aperture, while maintaining a compact and portable size. The current line-up of 21 lenses ranges from ultra wide-angle to super telephoto and includes five fast aperture prime lenses. These lenses bring out the very best image quality from the X-E2S. Optional accessories such as mount adapters, a 1.4x teleconverter and macro extension tubes further broaden photographic potential.
(6)Create unique photos with Film Simulation modes and other artistic features
Fujifilm’s unprecedented image quality has been created through over 80 years of development of photographic films. This technology helps the camera to reproduce warm skin tones, bright blue skies and rich green trees, just as photographers remember the scene. The X-E2S features the latest CLASSIC CHROME Film Simulation mode, which delivers muted tones and deep colours. Users can choose from ten other modes that simulate the effects of traditional film line-up of Fujifilm including colour reversal film effects (Velvia/PROVIA/ASTIA), professional colour negative film (PRO Neg.Std / PRO Neg.Hi), monochrome filters (MONOCHROME, Ye filter, R filter and G filter)and SEPIA.
Advanced Filter functions are also available on the X-E2S. Users can choose from eight different artistic effects:
Pop Colour - Emphasises contrast and colour saturation.
Toy Camera - Creates shaded borders as if you were taking a photo on a toy camera.
Miniature - Adds top and bottom blur for a diorama or miniature effect.
Dynamic Tone - Creates a fantasy effect by boosting tones.
Partial Colour - Retains one selected original colour and changes the rest of the photo black & white. Colours can be selected from red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple.
High Key - Enhances brightness and reduces contrast to lighten tonal reproduction.
Low Key - Creates uniformly dark tones with few highlight areas.
Soft Focus - Creates a look that is soft throughout the whole image.
