Equipped with a large APS-C size sensor, the resolving and descriptive power of the Fujinon lens can be maximized, thereby enabling high resolution over the entire screen.
The X-E1's sensor adopts the same high-performance 16M X-Trans CMOS found in the X Series flagship X-Pro1 model. Featuring an originally developed color filter array with a highly random pixel arrangement, its X-Trans CMOS sensor eliminates the need for an optical low-pass filter, which is used in conventional systems to inhibit moiré at the expense of resolution. The innovative array lets the X-Trans CMOS sensor capture unfiltered light from the lens and produce unprecedented resolution. The unique random arrangement of the color filter array is also highly effective in enhancing noise separation in high-sensitivity photography. Another advantage of the large APS-C sensor is the ability to create a beautiful "bokeh" effect - the aesthetic out-of-focus effect created when shooting with a shallow depth of field.
Film Simulation - Explore the Nuances of Color
Just like choosing the perfect film to match your creative direction, the X-E1 can simulate the color and tonal qualities of acclaimed film brands including the true-to-scene natural look of PROVIA, the vibrant tonality and saturated colors of Velvia and the silky soft look and beautiful skin tones of ASTIA. Film Simulation mode makes it simple to capture the expressive color quality of the rich legacy of Fujifilm photo film technology.
The Design of the X-E1 Prioritizes "Photographing"
The X-E1 employs numbered dials for aperture, shutter speed and exposure compensation and is equipped with a viewfinder that allows you to select your composition.
The design of the X-E1 resembles the cameras of the film age, and there is wisdom that has been passed down behind it. This gives the X-E1 commonality that transcends the ages.
The X-E1 is designed to enable you to "quickly" capture that moment you wish to document.
The Compact X-E1 is Equipped with an Internal Flash
You can make your subject stand out using the flash, such as the daytime synchro when the sun is in front of you or the capture light when photographing people.
By combining the superior highly sensitive performance of the X-E1 with highly sensitive settings you can achieve high resolution with little noise by compensating for the amount of light present.
Interchangeable Fujinon XF Lens
Fujifilm is pleased to announce the launch of two new models to the Fujinon XF Lens range bringing the total number of lenses available to five, offering much broader photographic appeal.
The XF Lens is the culmination of Fujinon optical technology's quest for new heights in image excellence. Our story begins with the XF concept: impressive descriptive performance from the center to the edge of the image frame and exceptional resolution from corner to corner. Plus the maximum aperture diameter possible for a brighter, faster lens that extends the limits of expression, and a compact form that can go wherever the moment takes you. Our XF lens tale continues with the addition of ultra wide angle and zoom lenses and the promise of even more prime variations - all featuring the same compact design and acclaimed optical performance. Our quest for even lighter and more compact lenses led to debut of the remarkable XC lens series. As each chapter in the ongoing story of Fujinon X mount lenses ends, another begins.
Natural Look" Electronic Viewfinder Debuts
The Fusion of Fujifilm Optical Technology and a new 2.36M-dot Organic EL Panel
Adopting an optical structure of two glass lenses and a double aspherical lens, the viewfinder provides a comfortable and natural view of the entire scene with an horizontal apparent field of view of 25°. Fujifilm's optical engineers have achieved a distortion-free view with astounding edge-to-edge clarity and maintained an excellent field of vision even if the photographer's eye position shifts.
2.36M-Dot Organic EL Panel
With approx. 2.36M dots of resolution and 100% coverage, the X-E1 display panel provides incredible detail to perfectly frame and focus your shots. The rich color expression of OLED technology and high contrast ratio of 1:5,000* reflect exposure, white balance and film simulation settings with high fidelity, letting you confirm changes in real time.
Use the "Drive" button to switch to photography modes you use often.
You can smoothly change to the following settings using the DRIVE button.
The X-E1 achieves quick response compatible with DSLR cameras thereby enabling you to never miss a shot.
Featuring a large APS-C sensor and with the elimination of an optical low-pass filter, Fujifilm's X-Trans CMOS takes advantage of its high-sensitivity performance to deliver a standard range up to ISO 6400. No matter when or where the shutter opportunity arises, you can depend on its high-sensitivity image quality to defeat blur caused by camera shake or subject motion. The X-E1's low-light capabilities are guaranteed to capture the moment beautifully.
In bright scenes, every detail from the leaves of the trees to a wisp of hair in a portrait is captured with exceptionally high resolution.
In high contrast scenes, for example when shooting landscapes with a strong contrast between bright and dark areas, this technology reproduces the natural tonality in both highlights and shadow.

This review is from: Fujifilm X-E1 Digital Camera Kit with XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 OIS Lens (Silver)
Pros: Great images even under low light. Intuitive controls, Redefines (in a good way) what a kit zoom lens is. It's not a point and shoot, but it is an amazingly fun camera. I was looking for something smaller and easier to handle that my FF DSLR, but I didn't want to give up much in image quality. This is the answer. There may be a new model coming out soon, which is why you're starting to see some price drops. It's not perfect, but if it doesn't say Leica, this is the next best.
Cons: The EVF is a little laggy so sports or other action type shots are not going to be this cam's forte.
Other Thoughts: This is a great way for someone who wants to go small but not give up quality images. There's supposed to be an update to this design in Mid October '13. Which may or may not offer some new features you'll want.
