Weeks after its international showcase, Fujifilm has brought its retro looking mirrorless camera to the Indian shores. Called the X-M1, this is the third inter-changeable lens camera from the company. X-M1 has 16.3 MP APS-C X-trans sensor, which is complimented by the EXR processor II and together can capture images at 5.6 frames per second. This camera does not possess a view finder, but has a 3-inch HD LCD attached to its back that can be tilted up and down to get the best shot.
However, the most intriguing feature of this retro cam is its wireless ability to transfer images. Using Wi-Fi and a free downloadable Fujifilm app, users can transfer images from the camera to any smartphone or tablet PC with ease -- something most other cameras in the segment can't do. For enthusiasts who also want good video capabilities from their camera will be in luck with the X-M1. It can capture full HD videos at 30 frames per second. Other features include 49 AF points, up to 6,400 ISO level, built-in flash and a special Q button which shows a list view of the most frequently used features.
Fujifilm has tried to keep its price competitive. Just the body will cost Rs 42,990 and body+kit (16-50mm lens) will be available for Rs 47,999.
