FUJIFILM introduces X-E3  mirrorless camera with wireless connectivity

Photographing and sharing high-quality images just got a lot easier thanks to the latest lightweight camera from FUJIFILM. The new FUJIFILM X-E3 pairs with smart devices via Bluetooth, enabling photographers to wirelessly transfer files.

 

The FUJIFILM X-E3 is an ultra-compact mirrorless digital camera with outstanding image quality and expert handling. It sports a lightweight, ergonomic body and its enhanced connectivity make it a new benchmark for both amateur and pro photographers.

 

With a 24.3 megapixel sensor (APS-C sized X-TransTM CMOS III) and an X-Processor Pro image processing engine, the X-E3 produces exceptional image quality with quality colour reproduction.

 

Auto mode on the X-E3 can choose the optimum settings for any given scene, meaning photographers who are just starting out will be able to shoot like pros. Thanks to the newly developed image recognition algorithm, the X-E3’s auto-focus is able to track moving subjects twice as fast as previous models. In addition, the X-E3 can also track moving subjects of half the size as before.

 

Capable of recording both Full HD and 4K video using the X-Series’ advanced Film Simulation modes, the X-E3 is not just for stills photography. The X-E3 features a high-resolution LCD monitor with a 3.0-inch touchscreen panel display and a host of innovative functions including pinch zoom and swipe and flick capabilities. It is fully compatible with the line-up of 25 FUJINON XF lenses as well.

 

New Zealand product and marketing manager Magdalena McLean says the new camera is the perfect companion for everyday use and travel photography.

 

“All X-Series cameras are made based on user feedback, extensive testing and revolutionary design. The new X-E3’s Bluetooth® pairing means professional quality shots can be transferred to a phone or tablet and uploaded to social media within moments.

 

“It is lightweight, has a grip-shaped design and at only 337 grams it is ideal to take away on holiday as well as on-the-go for everyday shooting,” says McLean.

 

Also announced was the release of the FUJINON XF80mmF2.8 R LM OIS WR Macro Lens, which is perfect for close-up nature and flower photography. This new lens, driven by a linear motor for fast and silent auto focus, features the focal length equivalent to 122mm and supports hand-held shooting thanks to the Optical Image Stabiliser system which combats shift shake.

 

The FUJIFILM X-E3 retails for RRP $ 1499 and can be purchased from authorised FUJIFILM dealers nationwide from the end of September 2017. The new FUJINON XF80mm Macro Lens retails for RRP $1999 and is available from November 2017.
