£1050 Fujifilm X-E1 compact system camera with XF 18-55 lens

Currys is selling the Fujifilm X-E1 compact system camera with an XF 18-55 mm lens for £1,050, a camera that is the second interchangeable lens camera from Fuji’s X series.

It comes with a massive 16-megapixel X-Trans CMOS image sensor and this, according to Fuji, features an “innovative colour filter with random pixel arrangements”.

It has a standard ISO range going from 200 to 6,400 and can be extended from 100 to 25,600 in a so-called enhanced mode. There’s also a useful cleaning feature that uses an ultrasonic vibration mechanism and an image stabilizer.

When it comes to the actual hardware, the camera uses a body that’s reminiscent of old-generation, retro film cameras.

At the back is a 2.8in display and a 0.5in viewfinder that can display a whopping 2.36 million dots. It has a mini HDMI and USB 2.0 connector, a manual pop up flash, an SD card slot and can record in full HD while its lithium-ion battery can take up to 350 frames.
