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: “
mirrorless system camera with interchangeable lenses. The clear objective
in the development of lenses, sensor and processor technology to achieve the
highest image quality.”
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.
