I just got my hands on the Fuji X100, and after reading all the praises this APS-C format camera has received for its image quality, I wanted to take a closer look.
The Fuji X100 has been scarce since its announcement, with many in the US wondering just when they’ll get their chance to put hands on one. If you’ve been waiting, it looks like Amazon has some in stock now.
Only 17 more left in stock at the time of this post. Better hurry.
Update: It took 25 minutes to blow through the 17 available (at 3AM). However, Amazon says it has more in stock, but it just takes 1-2 days extra to process the orders (guess they’re in the back of the warehouse, eh?).
Update #2: Wow. Those are gone too. The X100 may be some hot stuff this year…
Fuji has made quite a show of its APS-C format, fixed lens X100 camera. Today, Fuji dropped what should be its final press release on the X100, detailing availability, price and full spec list.
Check out additional photos, the press release and full specifications below. [Read more…]
The Fuji FinePix X100 is a point and shoot camera with a 12MP DSLR-sized sensor. The Fuji X100 features a 23mm f/2 lens, which is equivalent to a 35mm field of view on a full frame camera.
Additionally, the X100 captures 720p video and includes a hot shoe for external flashes when the built-in flash doesn’t cut it. A hybrid viewfinder allows you to switch between optical and electronic viewing options.
The new X100 should be available in early 2011.
