Fujifilm KLASSE W with a Sophisticated, Refined, and Relaxed Design
So many 35mm autofocus compact cameras have been released since 1980, but the KLASSE W is said to be the most matured camera as well as the last model.
With providing a touch of softness in the accurate, the SUPER EBC Fujinon 28mm f/2.8 lens has both a modern lens configuration and a coating technique.
Compared to the so-called luxury compact cameras, you can use the KLASSE W in a casual way while featuring with such a high-performance lens.
At a major turning point from a film camera to a digital camera, the KLASSE W developed by using a variety of essential technologies of other 35 mm compact cameras.
What part of the camera is attractive to photographers?
Let’s check it out!
About the Fujifilm KLASSE W
The Fujifilm KLASSE W is the latest 35mm compact camera. In another words, it has positioned as the fully newly-developed camera.
Performance and Specification of the KLASSE W
According to the catalog, the Fujifilm KLASSE W seems to have a standard performance and a specification. But, the camera actually overcame its traditional implementation restrictions and successfully added functions, including the most frequent request from photographers.
The SUPER EBC Fujinon 28mm f/2.8 lens contains six elements in five groups. Equipped with the automatic winding/rewinding function, the KLASSE W is available both in autofocus (including AF lock) and manual focus mode.
Further, the KLASSE W enables to select a program AE mode or an aperture-priority AE mode. It also provides the exposure compensation up to the two steps, with each half step up. Its shutter maximum speed is up to 1/500th of a second when remaining the aperture open, while it is 1/1000th of a second when stopping down the aperture.
As you can see those features above, the KLASSE W is “a wolf in sheep’s clothing”, even though it looks just a standard compact camera at first glance.
In no way inferior to the luxury compact cameras with titanium coating, the KLASSE W has all necessary functions including a touch of lightness.
About the SUPER EBC Fujinon 28mm f/2.8 Lens
Fujifilm has traditionally used EBC (Electron Beam Coating) on lenses.
The SUPER EBC Fujinon 28mm f/2.8 lens, designed for the KLASSE W, is covered with a perfect coating as a compact camera.
The most remarkable feature of EBC is to suppress diffuse reflection of the light and to make image noise less noticeable. Even under the bad light condition like an image or a gradation pattern are not clear, the KLASSE W can attain an excellent performance of a lens. Moreover, the lens enables to resolve images accurately.
By means of this technique, the KLASSE W can deliver images with its feel and texture, even if the image is captured in the presence of backlight, sunset, or direct sunlight in summer.
Free Photographic Representation with an Aperture-Priority Automatic Mode
The KLASSE W can work well for photographic representation as hobbies or arts. One of the reasons for that is because an aperture-priority automatic mode is suitable for shooting street snaps and candid photos. Then, the most modern Fujinon lens will also help you to capture the world representing your own mental pictures.
The combination of a program AE mode and an aperture priority mode reminds me of the masterpiece “RICOH GR1”. The KLASSE W, with the light small body, can achieve the functions in the same level of luxury compact cameras or professional models.
High Efficiency to Grasp the Overall Image within Minutes
The KLASSE W achieves a great operation that everyone can smoothly use at a glance.
Basically, the camera is controlled by dial operations. For example, the exposure compensation control dial is located on the shoulder of a camera body, and it is possible to switch from a program mode to aperture-priority mode immediately.
The exposure compensation dial is placed in front, next to the lens. This also uses the dial type in order to check the correction value quickly, so the camera can easily adjust exposure depending on light conditions.
It is recommended that you use the autofocus function to deal with exposure at will. Furthermore, you can gather lights overflows in the world and print them into a film by using a small dark box that is called a compact camera.
Fujifilm KLASSE W – “A Wolf Dressed in a Sheep’s Skin”
As I mentioned above, the Fujifilm KLASSE W is just like a high-end, high specification compact camera if I describe it in a word.
While the KLASSE W has the same visual appearance of compact cameras, you can capture a scene as intended, along with an impression of its feel and its overwhelming volume.
