Fujifilm has today confirmed to Amateur Photographer that it is considering the launch of a compact system camera (CSC).

The news follows a deluge of press reports suggesting that Fuji is set to launch a mirrorless system camera this year.

Responding to the reports a spokesperson for Fujifilm UK told us: ?We are indeed studying the opportunities and may re-enter the market.?

Fuji has declined to elaborate, but we understand that ?re-enter? refers to the interchangeable lens camera arena [as CSCs are not, technically-speaking, DSLRs – a market that Fuji has experience of in the past, see S5 Pro DSLR pictured].
