Fujifilm has freshened its X-series lineup with the X-E3, which replaces the X-E2.

While not an entry-level model, Fujifilm is touting the camera’s features that would appeal to amateur photographers and content producers.

The X-E3 is smaller and lighter than its predecessor while increasing the pixel count of its APS-C sensor and adding the ability to record 4K video. There are other changes, as well, that seek to make the camera easier to use.

Make no bones about it: Canon wants smartphone photographers.

Canon mentions that group several times in its press release announcing the Canon EOS M100 mirrorless camera.

“The new Canon EOS M100 can be the ideal camera for those eager to step up their images and share their creative vision without sacrificing image quality or on-the-go performance,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, Canon USA’s president and COO.

One of the nice things about a so-called bridge camera is that many of the recent offerings are fitted with superzooms that offer very long telephoto focal lengths.

The Tamron f/3.5-6.3 18-400mm Di II VC HLD brings the bridge camera concept to Canon and Nikon digital SLRs with APS-C sensors. This translates to a full-frame equivalent range of 27-600mm for Nikon cameras and 28.8-640mm for Canon bodies.

Nikon has taken many features from its top-tier APS-C DSLR, the D500, and incorporated them into a body that is more than a third less expensive.

The Nikon D7500 uses the D500’s 20.9-MP CMOS sensor that is tied to the EXPEED 5 image processing engine. The sensor has an ISO of 100-51,200, which can be extended upward to 1.64 million, which should be all that anyone ever needs.

While there are many digital SLRs that are made to operate in all kinds of conditions, Ricoh Imaging is marketing the Pentax KP as a camera for all seasons.

The Pentax KP has a 24.3-MP APS-C CMOS sensor that is linked to the Prime IV image-processing system. There is no low-pass filter, which is being seen increasingly these days. The ISO range is 100 to an astounding 819,200. Whether the top of the range is a usable ISO will remain to be seen.

Fujifilm’s successor to its X-10 seems to have a lot in common with another of its newer bodies, the X-T2.

The X-T20 uses the same 24.3-MP X-Trans III CMOS sensor. Like Fujifilm’s other X-series cameras, this is an APS-C sensor. Its ISO range is 200 to 12,800, which can be extended to 100 to 51,200.

Coinciding with the announcement of the X-T20 is a new f/2.0 50mm lens.

It was nearly five years ago in 2011 that Fujifilm reinvigorated its digital camera lineup with the X100.

What made the X100 so popular was its retro styling and a rangefinder style optical-electronic viewfinder that the camera-buying public loved.

Up to that point, Fujiflm had produced quite a few digital point and shoots and several DSLRs that were based on Nikon bodies fittied with a Fujifilm sensor.

What’s sexier than Fujifilm’s X-T2 and X-Pro2? How about both of those cameras in graphite silver.

Fujifilm announced that two of its most-popular X-series cameras will be available in this new color scheme.

The X-T2 and X-Pro2 are mirrorless interchangeable-lens models that were released last year as updates to the original models with the X-T2 resembling a single-lens reflex camera and the X-Pro2 looking like a rangefinder.
