Capture each strand of hair in crisp detail.

Thanks to the X-Trans CMOS II sensor architecture that eliminates the need for an optical low-pass filter (OLPF) and integrates FUJFILM's originally developed colour filter array, the FUJIFILM X-E2 reproduces scenes with resolution and clarity rivaling a larger sensor.

Conventional Array

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

Lens Modulation Optimizer technology brings out the full potential of the XF lens.

The advanced Lens Modulation Optimizer (LMO) technology in the FUJIFILM X-E2 was made possible by the integrated development of the lens, sensor and processor. For each mounted lens, LMO high-precision processing of the focal length and aperture of the lens, as well as data from the screen centre to the edges, corrects diffraction blur when shooting with a stopped down aperture and compensates for the slight blurring in the lens periphery. The result is edge-to-edge image quality with incredible sharpness and a sense of dimensional reality.

Intelligent Hybrid Auto Focus

World's fastest AF speed of 0.08 sec.* achieved via the integration of phase detection pixels into the advanced sensor.

The FUJIFILM X-E2 delivers high-speed response from the on-sensor phase detection AF system and accurate focusing in dark scenes that only contrast AF can produce. Intelligent Hybrid AF automatically switches to the optimal focusing system for the scene and conditions. A newly developed algorithm improves AF accuracy when shooting low-contrast subjects and dark scenes. The evolved AF system of the FUJIFILM X-E2 brings your subject into sharp focus so quickly that priceless moments will never escape your lens.

EXR Processor II — Double the processing speed of the previous generation.

Instant response that captures every fleeting moment beautifully.
Even in burst shooting, the FUJIFILM X-E2's high-speed AF tracks the subject with precision.

The adoption of the dual CPU and improved computing performance has doubled the processing speed when compared with the previous generation processor** and the start-up time has improved to approximately 0.5 sec.***. Working in tandem with the high-speed signal readout of the X-Trans CMOS II sensor, the processor reduces the shooting interval to 0.5 seconds*4 and shutter time lag to 0.05 seconds.

High-Speed Continuous Shooting

This adoption of the dual CPU has also raised the maximum continuous shooting speed to 7.0 fps (max. approx. 28 frames)*5 and achieves a maximum continuous shooting speed of 3.0 fps with AF tracking.

High Performance Mode

From instant auto focus as fast as 0.08 seconds* to faster start-up, you can maximize the performance of the FUJIFILM X-E2 to its limits. After turning OFF the power, the FUJIFILM X-E2 enters a "sleep" mode (for a maximum of 24 minutes). Turn ON the power during this time, and the FUJIFILM X-E2 "wakes up" instantly, reducing the normal start-up time from 0.92 seconds to approximately 0.5 seconds, ready for you to frame and capture the moment.
