The X Series began with the 2011 release of X100 globally. The X-Pro1, released in 2012, became the first model to feature the X-Trans CMOS sensor, which uses a unique color filter array based on FUJIFILM’s extensive photographic expertise to achieve exceptional image-resolving performance and control of false colors at the same time, as well as the EXR Professor Pro image processing engine compatible with the sensor. For seven years, the X Series and its sensor – image processing engine combination have continued to evolve, with the company unveiling “X-Trans CMOS II” / “EXR Processor Pro II” in the X-T1, released in 2014, and “X-Trans CMOS III” / “X-Processor Pro” in the X-Pro2 and X-T2, released in 2016. The three generations of evolution have constantly advanced the X Series’ image quality and mobility.
With these state of the art X and GFX range of Mirrorless cameras, the company hopes to strengthen its foothold in the Mirrorless Segment and plans to achieve 30% Share in the Indian Mirrorless Market in the next 3-4 Years.
