New X-S1 Bridge Camera from Fujifilm


The new Fujifilm X-S1 is the third in a series of Fujifilm Premium X-series digital cameras. Complementing FujiFilm’s X100 and X10, the Fujifilm X-S1 is a robustly built bridge camera designed around a Fujifilm 12Mp 2/3" CMOS sensor and a fast-for-its-class, 26x, 24 to 624mm f/2.8-5.6 equivalent Fujinon zoom lens.

Fujifilm’s X-S1 features heavy-duty body construction with rubberized body panels to better ensure a secure grip, and large, easy access metal-alloy control dials. For composing and reviewing stills (JPEG or RAW at up to 10 frames per second) and video clips (1080p) the X-S1 offers the choice of a rear-mounted, tilt-able 3.0" 460,000-dot LCD or the camera’s 0.47" 1.44-million dot EVF.

Other features found on Fujifilm’s premium X-S1 bridge camera include portrait, sport, auto and manual modes, film-simulation modes, macro focusing down to 1cm, in-camera panorama capture (120°, 180° or 360°), a top ISO of 12800,  advanced low-light shooting modes and up to 500 exposures per battery charge.

I find this type of statement "2/3" CMOS sensor" to be unhelpful.  why not give actual dimensions of the sensor, like "sensor size 6.2mm x 9.4mm" or whatever it is.  then anyone who reads it knows what it means.  only camera insiders know what a "2/3" size sensor is.

Amen. There is more to recording a good image beyond the sensor size. Although I won't argue the positives of an average density (12-14 MP), large pixel, low noise, full-frame, 35mm format sensor. 125,000 ISO ROCKS!
