Fujifilm has announced that it is the latest camera manufacturer to jump on the compact system camera (CSC) bandwagon and will launch its offering in early 2012.
The most recent manufacturer to announce its presence in this space was Nikon, who launched the Nikon 1 J1 and Nikon 1 V1 acouple of weeks ago - leaving Canon as the only major manufacturer yet to show its hand in relation to interchangeable lens cameras.
Fujifilm has not announced any details relating to the new CSC it will release next year with the company’s president and CEO Shigetaka Komori simply stating: “
Could the new mirrorless system camera from Fujifilm have the same retro styling as this X100?
With the company keeping its cards close to its chest for the moment, we imagine that CES in Las Vegas next January could be the ideal time and place for the big reveal.
The only detail Komori gave away about the camera was that Fujifilm expected it to have "resolution and low noise [which] and will surpass the 35mm full-size sensor."
Fujifilm are not using the term compact system camera, which could suggest a larger camera body but for now this is all speculation and we’ll have to wait and see just what Fujifilm has to offer in the new year.
