D-SLR level image quality in a compact body

X-Trans CMOS

  • APS-C Image Sensor
    23.6 x 15.6mm
  • Micro Four Thirds
    17 x 13mm
  • 1-inch
    13.2 x 8.8mm

Capture each strand of hair in crisp detail.

Thanks to the hi-tech X-Trans CMOS sensor architecture that eliminates the need for an optical low-pass filter (OLPF) and integrates FUJFILM's originally developed color filter array, the FUJIFILM X-M1 reproduces scenes with resolution and clarity rivalling a larger sensor.

Conventional Array

Repeating pattern in the case of an array of 2 x 2 pixel units.

New Filter Array

Higher degree of randomness with an array of 6 x 6 pixel units.

The X-Trans CMOS sensor incorporates FUJIFILM's own colour filter array with a highly random pattern, eliminating the need for an optical low-pass filter (OLPF). These filters are traditionally used in conventional systems to inhibit moiré at the expense of resolution. The X-Trans CMOS sensor array lets the sensor capture unfiltered light from the lens, achieving an unprecedented level of resolution.

The importance of a large sensor

Why a larger sensor is more important than the number of megapixels a camera has

High Sensitivity for noise-free and blur-free photos even in low light.

The high sensitivity performance of the X-Trans CMOS sensor and EXR PROCESSOR II lets you capture low-light scenes with crisp clarity, free from noise. Turn up the sensitivity and capture dynamic scene with confidence, even in dark conditions. You can shoot without a tripod and without fear of camera shake ruining your results.

  • Exceptionally low noise even at high sensitivity.

Inimitable FUJIFILM colour.

FUJIFILM's excellent colour reproduction quality is the fruit of its 80 year photographic film background. From beautiful soft skin tones to the deep azure of the skies, FUJIFILM captures each scene just as your eye sees it and saves your memory as an exceptional photo.

ISO Sensitivity

ISO100 - 25600 Sensitivity setting range

Select from a broad sensitivity range of ISO100 - 25600 for full 16-megapixel resolution image capture. The FUJIFILM X-M1 also lets you set the AUTO ISO range (up to ISO 400 - 6400) and the shutter speed limit. For quick access to ISO settings, you can assign this function to the Fn or Q Button.

High-speed Response Keeps You in Synch with the Moment

From the instant you spot your shot and switch ON your FUJIFILM X-M1, its high-speed performance will ensure the magic of the moment does not escape your lens.  

Capture moving subjects at 5.6 fps (max. 30 frames**)  high speed continuous shooting

Ideal for shooting children, pets and other subjects that seem to be constantly on the go, this built-in function lets you record a burst of up to 30 frames at a speed of 5.6 fps and then select the best shot.

Quick Start Mode

From SLEEP to ON in about 0.5 sec. After turning OFF the power, the FUJIFILM X-M1 enters a "sleep" mode (for a maximum of 24 minutes). If the power is turned ON during this time, the FUJIFILM X-M1 "wakes up" instantly, reducing the normal start-up time from 1.0 sec. to approx. 0.5 sec. ready for you to frame and capture the moment.


Focusing Mode Selection

Go to the Shooting Menu to choose the right Focusing Mode for the scene (Manual, Auto Area, Area Selection AF, Continuous AF, Auto Tracking AF).

Selectable AF with a 49-point Metering matrix

Within the 49-point matrix of the auto focus area on the screen, AF accurately and swiftly recognises the primary subject and brings it into crystal clear focus. It also lets you freely select the position of the AF frame. Using the LCD monitor, you also can change the AF frame size and pinpoint the focus point.

Manual Focus

The distance index bar displayed on the LCD together with the depth of field scale and aperture value provide helpful guides for focusing.

Focus Peak Highlight function for sharper manual focusing.

When manually adjusting focus, this function highlights in high contrast the area of your composition in focus and allows you to see this change as the focus plane changes for smoother and more precise fine tuning of focusing.

AF Assist Lamp for Low-Light Scenes

In low light scenes when even the subject is hard to see through the viewfinder, AF Assist Lamp illuminates the subject and assists Auto Focus.
