FUJIFILM X-E1 in classic black is very effective for high-sensitivity photography due to its arrangement of the color filter array, which enhances noise separation. The large APS-C sensor is capable of creating wonderful brokeh effects when shooting with a shallow depth of field. Its X-Trans CMOS sensor inhibits moire. The large choice of photography functions makes the FUJIFILM X-E1 ideal for most any photographic situation.
X-Trans CMOS Sensor - Enabling high quality imaging
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.
Equipped with a Large APS-C Sensor for the Highest Image Quality.
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.

High Sensitivity Performance Comparison
X-Trans CMOS Technologies Take Beauty to New Extremes
Standard Range to ISO6400 and Extended Range to ISO25600
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 ISO6400. 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.
Wide Dynamic Range
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.
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.
High-definition and high-luminance 2.36 M-dot OLED electronic viewfinder
By combining the best OLED electronic viewfinder in its class with FUJIFILM's original optical technology the X-E1 offers a bright, wide field of vision of which its entirety can be seen at a glance.
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.
Diopter Adjustment Dial
The X-E1 offers a diopter correction dial that enables users to adjust the strength of the viewfinder in accordance with their eyesight. The dial is located on the side of the viewfinder and can be adjusted from -4m-1 - +2m-1 (dtp).
Narrow horizontal apparent field of view 18°
Horizontal apparent field of view 25°
2.36 M-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 1:5000* reflect exposure, white balance and film simulation settings with high fidelity, letting you confirm changes in real time.
