FUJIFILM ANNOUNCES NEW SELFIE-READY X-A2 CSC AND PREMIUM COMPACT XQ2
Two new versatile zoom lenses, XC16-50mm II and XC50-230mm II, also added to give users wide range of photographic possibilities
Valhalla, N.Y., January 15, 2015 – FUJIFILM North America Corporation today announced the new FUJIFILM X-A2 compact system camera (CSC), an ultra-light, selfie-ready camera that gives users quick access to a 175° tilting LCD with face and eye detection for fast and fun pictures. The X-A2 is an affordable entry point into the X-Series line of digital cameras and delivers outstanding image quality using its large 16.3 Megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor, easy operation and wireless image transfer for quick photo sharing.
Also new to the X-Series line is the FUJIFILM XQ2, a premium pocket-sized digital camera with a bright FUJINON F1.8 4x zoom lens, an advanced 12 Megapixel 2/3” X-Trans CMOS II sensor with phase detection, and the EXR Processor II that delivers the fastest autofocus speed in its category of up to 0.06 seconds.
FUJIFILM X-A2 faces forward for incredible shots
The FUJIFILM X-A2 ships with the newly-developed FUJINON XC16-50mm II (24-76mm) F3.5-5.6 OIS zoom lens and has a 175° tilting LCD with face and eye detection for candid and fun selfies. The X-A2 also features optical image stabilization of approximately 3.5-stops, making it easier to take telephoto and low light images.
The X-A2 uses a newly-developed Eye auto focus (AF), Auto Macro AF and Multi-Target AF to achieve easy and accurate auto focus performance, bringing premium image quality and performance of the X-Series to everyone.
The XC16-50mm II is a versatile lens that is ideal for a wide range of photographic subjects, including clear low-light scenes, beautiful portraits and vibrant landscapes. The lens consists of 12 all glass elements in 10 groups including 3 aspherical elements and 1 ED element. The lens features seven round-edged aperture blades, which offer 17 stops in 1/3 EV increments for precise aperture control.
FUJINON XC50-230mm II (76-350mm) F4.5-6.7 OIS
Also new to pair with the X-A2 is the improved FUJINON XC50-230mm II (76-350mm) F4.5-6.7 OIS lens that adds even more versatility by offering an expanded zoom range that delivers consistently outstanding optical performance throughout. The XC50-230mm II uses optical image stabilization to ensure superb performance and effectively reduces blur when shooting at longer focal lengths and in low light.
FUJIFILM XQ2 makes performance easier to carry
The FUJIFILM XQ2 uses the 12 Megapixel 2/3” X-Trans CMOS II sensor that is designed to control moiré and false color generation by using an original color filter array with a highly randomized pixel arrangement. This technology removes the need for an Optical Low Pass Filter (OLPF) that degrades resolution. The image quality in the XQ2 is further enhanced by using a Lens Modulation Optimizer (LMO) for stunningly sharp pictures, as well as a 3.0 stop Optical Image Stabilization for shooting in low light situations.
The newly developed FUJINON F1.8 4x zoom (25-100mm) is constructed with 4 aspherical and 3 extra low dispersion lenses and each lens surface is coated with HT-EBC to reduce flare and ghosting. The XQ2 also has a wide sensitivity range from ISO100 to ISO12800 so you can take realistic and vibrant images even in low light.
The EXR Processor II in the new XQ2 more than doubles the processing speed of the previous generation, and it easily captures the information taken from over 100,000 phase detection pixels incorporated in the X-Trans CMOS II to deliver astonishing images.
