Fujifilm announced rangefinder-style, mirrorless X-Pro1 camera, to cost $1,700 at launch

If you love rangefinder-style cameras, you’re going to love this one. The X-Pro1 is a gorgeous new camera from Fujifilm that uses a 16.3 megapixel APS-C “X-Trans CMOS” sensor. It uses a new optical low-pass filter array, which promises to reduce the moire pattern that occurs while shooting patterns while maintaining image sharpness.

The X-Pro1 comes with a new lens mount called the X Mount that supports the new range of XF Lenses from Fujifilm. There are only three lenses available at the moment and all are fixed focus but Fujifilm promises enhanced resolution and light volume in image edge areas as well as reduced chromatic aberration with these.

Lastly there is the Hybrid Viewfinder that lets you switch between an optical viewfinder and the electronic one with a flick of a switch placed on the front of the camera.

The Fujifilm X-Pro1 will launch in February at around $1,700 and the lenses are expected to cost $650 each. To check out some sample images, click on the second source link below.
