The Fujifilm X-Series range of digital cameras consists of Fujifilm's high-end digital cameras[1] and is aimed at professional and keen enthusiast photographers. It is part of the larger range of Fujifilm's digital cameras. X-Series itself is not characterized by a single common sensor size, technology or a lens format. Rather, its main differentiating feature is emphasis on the controls needed by an advanced digital camera user.
