Days before Fuji is scheduled to make the announcement for their entry level X-M1 interchangeable mirrorless camera, Digicame.info was able to acquire leaked images of that camera, confirming the rumors from Fujirumors.com that the X-M1 will lose the viewfinder, but will gain a tilting LCD screen. Design-wise, there is an immediate family resemblance to its older siblings, the X-E1 and the Fuji X-Pro 1.
The price will likely fall around $600-650 for the body only.
Once again, Fuji will use its well-received 16MP X-Trans sensor in the X-M1 and all the X-lenses will be compatible with the X-M1.
In addition to the lack of a viewfinder and the tiltable LCD screen, there are other notable differences with the X-M1 compared to the X-E1 and the Fuji X-Pro 1.. The shutter speed dial has been replaced with a Mode dial, and the exposure compensation dial has been replaced by a regular command dial. The Fn button on the top is marked Wi-Fi, which will be a new feature for the X-series cameras.
The back of the X-M1 is also very different from the other X-cameras, and is clearly aimed for more novice photographers. The LCD takes up more real estate in relation the body, and the buttons that used to reside to the left of the LCD have been moved over to the right side or into the menu.
Finally, Fuji will also announce a new 27mm f/2.8 pancake lens in addition to the X-M1. Stay tuned for more updates as we get closer to Fuji’s official announcement on June 25th!
