The Fujifilm X-M1 Brings Quality and Affordability
If you’re in the market for a high quality camera that is able to provide professional-grade performance without emptying your pockets upon purchase, then you should definitely consider the new Fujifilm X-M1. This camera will come with a price tag of $699, which is a lot cheaper when compared to a $1300 Fujifilm X100S for example.
For this price, you get a 3-inch tilting LCD on the rear, a 16 MP crop sensor and access to a wide range of x-mount lenses. If you throw in another hundred dollars, you get a 16-50mm lens kit that proves useful in covering the wide-to-normal focusing range. The X-M1 was designed to be used mainly by a beginner photographer, featuring all the necessary entry-level features such as a flash hotshoe, interchangeable lenses, a broad ISO range and a high-resolution sensor. However, the camera does not come with an optical viewfinder, forcing the user to rely only on the LCD screen for his photo composition. In any case, those who are mainly accustomed to camera phones or other point-and-shoot cameras will actually find this feature agreeable and familiar.
A compact, powerful and high quality product, the Fujifilm X-M1 is a pretty impressive gadget in all regards.
