Fujifilm's X-mount series cameras have always had a loyal fan following and it was no surprise when the Fujifilm X-E2 was announced last year, it quickly found a good reception amongst photographers and enthusiasts all over. Fujifilm, has now launched the camera in India.

The mirrorless interchangeable lens camera is available for a price tag of Rs. 76,999 for just the body and Rs. 1,09,999 including the XF 18-55mm kit lens.

The Fujifilm X-E2 camera boasts of a 16.3-megapixel, APS-C X-Trans CMOS II sensor. Fujifilm claims that it has the world's fastest autofocus with a speed of 0.08 seconds. The hybrid AF helps to improve accuracy of shooting low-contrast subjects and it also incorporates an original colour filter array. In addition the X-Trans CMOS II sensor controls the false colour generation with the help of the original colour filter.

This removes the need to use the Optical Low Pass Fliter (OLPF). It is also the same colour filter used in the Fujifilm X100S. The Lens Modulation Optimiser, (LMO) improves the sharpness of the images and is compatible with every XF lens from the X series.

Manual controls include an aperture and shutter speed controller on top of the camera. A 2.36 million OLED viewfinder, and a three-inch 1.04 million dot screen. The manual focus has been improved using the Digital Split Image 6 Technology. It shoots full-HD video (1920 x 1080p) at up to 60 fps. In addition it has built in Wi-Fi, which allows the user to transfer the images to a smartphone or tablet using the Fujifilm Camera Application app.
