What appears to be the long-awaited mirrorless camera from Fuji has made its way online, presumably ahead of a full reveal at next week’s CES 2012 show.
First teased by Fujifilm president and chief executive officer Shigetaka Komori back in October, he stated that “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.”
The above leaked photo, originally posted on omuser.com, doesn’t give much away, merely showing the viewfinder, grip and black chassis.
However, if Koromi’s rather extravagant initial statements are to be believed, we can look forward to snapping away with “resolution and low noise that will surpass the 35mm full size sensor.”
A bold claim indeed. Not long to wait though, as we’re sure to find out more at CES 2012 next week, where the Tech Digest/ Shiny Shiny teams will be n the show floor.
