Fujifilm Mirrorless Camera Coming Early 2012

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: “Fujifilm will launch in spring 2012, a

mirrorless system camera with interchangeable lenses. The clear objective

in the development of lenses, sensor and processor technology to achieve the

highest image quality.”

Fujifilm X100

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.

Let us know in the comments what you would like to see Fujifilm feature in its new camera system.
