BREAKING NEWS: CES/PMA 2012: Fuji Unveils X-Pro1 Interchangeable Lens Compact System Camera with DSLR-Sized Sensor (UPDATED)

Fujifilm jumped into the mirrorless compact system camera category this afternoon with the new Fujifilm X-Pro1. The small retro-style camera, which accepts interchangeable lenses and uses a new APS-C size sensor about the size of what’s in an entry-level digital SLR, will go on sale in late February.

“We’re aiming this camera at the professional,” said Fujifilm Marketing Manager Kayce M.
