After the release of Fujifilm X-M1 several weeks ago, Fujirumors reports there would be another X-series interchangeable-lens mirrorless camera called Fujifilm X-A1 to be announced in late August, 2013.
Along with the announcement of Fujifilm X-M1 and XF 27mm f/2.8 pancake lens, Fujifilm also updated the firmware for Fujifilm X-Pro1 and Fujfilm X-E1. And on July 23, Fujifilm will release updates (Versions 3.00 for the X-Pro1, and 2.00 for the X-E1) which promise to improve autofocus speed with existing XF lenses, and add the much-requested ‘focus peaking’ function to aid manual focus.
The Fujifilm X-M1 now officially announced, a compact-bodied mirrorless camera that features a rather different design to its previous models. Instead of ‘traditional’ shutter speed and exposure compensation dials, the X-M1 uses twin electronic control dials to change exposure parameters. It has a tilting 920k dot 3″ LCD screen but no eye-level viewfinder, and uses the same 16MP APS-C X-Trans CMOS sensor as the X-Pro1 and X-E1. It comes with a new kit zoom, the XC 16-50mm F3.6-5.6 OIS that offers a 24-75mm equivalent range and optical stabilisation, but has no aperture ring.

Panasonic and Fujifilm worked together on a new kind of organic sensor. The new sensor has the following advantages over conventional sensors:
1) it has only 1/6 of the thickness of the current sensors
2) Increased Dynamic range of 88dB
3) 1,2 times more sensible
4) range of incident angles of 60 degrees, efficiently utilizing light entering at an angle for faithful color reproduction with no color mixing. It also gives greater flexibility in lens designs, facilitating the reduction of overall camera size.
