X Series and GFX Mirrorless Camera Systems
Fujifilm’s mirrorless X Series cameras and lenses including the newly announced FUJIFILM X-H1 and X-A5 will be on display. The Medium Format FUJIFILM GFX Mirrorless Camera System will be available for hands-on experience.
For the first time, show attendees will be able to have hands-on experience with the new X-H1, the highest performance camera in the X Series line of mirrorless digital cameras. The X-H1 features a 24.3 megapixel APS-C sized X-Trans CMOS III sensor and X-Processor Pro image processing engine for outstanding image quality. The first to feature in-body image stabilization, the X-H1 incorporates a range of extremely useful features that support shooting in various scenarios demanded by professional photographers and videographers. In addition to its dust and water-resistant properties and ability to operate in temperatures as low as 14°F \ -10°C, the X-H1 also features 25% thicker magnesium alloy than the X-T2, making this the perfect camera for a wide range of shooting environments. Additionally, improvements to the Auto Focus algorithm have achieved AF performance enhancements. With a comprehensive range of video features to improve movie production, the X-H1 includes a new film simulation mode creating understated colors and rich shadow tones, which enhances creative freedom during post-processing. Additionally, stable exposure during burst shots is achieved with the flicker reduction mode, adding the X-H1’s shooting capabilities.
The GFX 50S and its accompanying lenses are perfect for event and portrait photography. A medium format mirrorless digital camera, the innovative GFX system combines an extraordinary sensor, processor and design with high-performance FUJINON lenses. Utilizing a Fujifilm exclusive 43.8 x 32.9mm (FUJIFILM G Format) 51.4MP CMOS sensor and taking advantage of the mirrorless system’s structure, the GFX system is capable of capturing exceptional tones and advanced color reproduction to provide the ultimate photography experience.
Also on display is the new X-A5, the lightest camera-zoom lens combination within the X Series lineup. With its ease of use and outstanding image quality, the X-A5 achieves exceptional skin tone reproduction, making it ideal for portraiture. The X-A5 is a cost effective camera and is equipped with the new FUJINON XC15-45mmF3.5- 5.6 OIS PZ lens, a lightweight and compact lens with a smooth electric-powered zoom. With its 4K video capabilities, this camera allows for a wide range of shooting possibilities, ensuring that the user never misses capture of important moments.
