Leaked images of two retro-styled Fujifilm cameras surfaced on the Internet ahead of the Photokina conference, which starts on Sept. 18 in Cologne, Germany.
Digicam Info, a Japanese Web site, leaked pictures of a previously rumored Fujifilm mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera, X-E1. The X-E1 resembles the X-Pro1 model, but touts a pop-up flash. However, CNet reported that the device does not have the optical viewfinder. Additionally, CNet indicates that "It looks slightly lower-end than the X-Pro1, though it does have a very nice leather body with a black or silver top."
The leaked pictures depict two dials on the camera. A dial on the top will enable users to select modes, whereas the other dial will activate the flash, macro mode, and help navigate through the menu.
Images of a Fujifilm compact camera were also leaked on Digicam Info (via The Verge). This camera could be the XP1, or the XF1. It features the same retro design as the X-E1, made of metal with a leather covering, but has no interchangeable lenses like the X-E1. "The camera is expected to feature a 4x zoom, and f/1.8 aperture at its widest, which shrinks down to f/4.9 when zoomed out," reports CNet. Just like the X-E1, this camera features a pop-up flash as well.
Details about the price and other specs are not available yet. The cameras are expected to be launched at the Photokina conference.
