The Fujifilm X-E3 is a compact mirrorless digital camera with unique twist on the rangefinder design. It houses a 24 megapixels X-Trans CMOS III sensor with built-in 325-Point Autofocus system. This mirrorless can record 4K Ultra-HD video at 30 FPS and shoot continuously at up to 14 FPS using an Electronic-Shutter or 8 FPS with a Mechanical-Shutter.

The body of the X-E3 has been shrunk compared to the X-E2 that precedes it by removing the 4-way controller on the back, leaving only a focus joystick to navigate the menu system. This makes using the X-E3 completely different than any other digital camera, although it maintains efficient controls with dual control-dials, a dedicated shutter-speed dial and an exposure-compensation dial.

An in-depth review of the Fujifilm X-E3 was just published at Neocamera. Read on to find out how the X-E3 performs and particularly how its new ergonomics work out.

An in-depth review of the Fujifilm GFX-50S was  just published at Neocamera. This review offers unique insights onto Fujifilm’s entrance into the medium format digital camera market with their GFX system. The first camera in this high-end system is a 50 megapixels GFX-50S, sporting a larger-than-full-frame 4:3 aspect sensor expected of Medium Format.

With the GFX-50S, Fujifilm is targeting photographers looking for the top-most image-quality at any price. All compatible lenses, using the new GF-mount, are designed to allow resolutions of at least 100 MP which should make them upwards compatible for successors of the GFX-50S.

The new Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS100 is the world’s only premium travel zoom. Not only does it feature advanced photographic controls with dual control-dials and an EVF with Eye-Start sensor, it also matches its 25-250mm equivalent zoom with a large 20 megapixels 1″ CMOS sensor which is making the rounds among premium compacts.

This lets the ZS100 deliver high image quality with good low-light performance in a pocket-size form factor even with a relatively long 10X optical zoom lens. This compact camera records 4K Ultra-HD video at 30 FPS and 1080p ones at 60 FPS.

Fuji stunned with world with their entry into the mirrorless cameras with the X-Pro1 which landed at the high-end of market along with a trio of prime lenses. Four years later, they unveiled its successor, continuing with the rangefinder-style body but making it weatherproof and introducing a new 24 megapixels APS-C X-Trans CMOS III sensor with built-in Phase-Detection.

Although lots of competitors have appeared among high-end mirrorless cameras, Fuji is holding its own thanks to their unique color-filter-array which stands moire without any anti-alias filter. A speedy hybrid shutter allows the X-Pro2 to maintain a full 8 FPS and capture frames at 1/32000s, making it one of the fastest mirrorless cameras around.

Neocamera just published a detailed review of the Fuji X-Pro2. Read it to see how this new top-of-the-line mirrorless performs and compares. Be sure to check the side-by-side crops comparing it to the Fuji X-Pro1 if you are considering upgrading from its predecessor.

The Canon EOS Rebel T6s and T6i took the Rebel family to 24 megapixels with an APS-C CMOS sensor which features built-in Phase-Detect AF for Live-View and video. Of the two, the T6s also launched a new intermediate family of DSLRs with a lightweight body and efficient controls, falling right between the previous Rebel lineup and the classic EOS series.

While clearly molded after other Rebels, the T6s adds a second control-dial and top status LCD. A fast Digic 6 processor lets it shoot at 5 FPS for up to a whopping 940 frames. It supports full 1080p HD video capture and a good number of features, including DOF-Preview.
