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.

Its hybrid shutter covers a broad 1/16000s to 60s range and is capable of completely silent shooting.

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.

Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II ReviewThe new Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II refines the performance of its predecessor by improving on key aspects. Its 16 megapixels Four-Thirds CMOS sensor is paired with an improved 5-axis image-stabilization system which lets it produce a 40 megapixel Super-Resolution image by combining 8 precisely aligned images. A new processor and faster shutter allow it to shoot at 10 FPS and up to 1/16000s shutter-speeds to freeze action.
