Photokina in Cologne, Germany, has pretty much lived up to expectations for photographers by introducing lots of fantastic new cameras and the Fujifilm PinePix X100 is one such camera. We have seen plenty of digital cameras with their design modernised looks but it is always just as soothing to see a camera thats been turned back on the clock. Fujifilm has come up with the FinePix X100 rangefinder that comes with a 12.3 MP APS-C sensor.
Fujifilm has closely studied the current line-up of professional cameras and feels that there is a strong need for a compact high-quality (APS-C based) camera as a counterpoint to an SLR. Using the experience of working with generations of photographers using famous emulsions like Velvia, Provia, Astia etc., Fujifilm engineers distilled this knowledge into months of careful study to create the perfect compact-sized professional camera.
The FinePix X100 comes with Micro Four Thirds and there are plenty of other compatible interchangeable compact lenses widely available in the market. The camera also supports 720p movie recording and boasts of an EXR processor. The FinePix X100 ships with 23mm F2 Fujinon lens. Users can easily toggle between electronic and optical viewfinders thus helping them to display various shooting informations right into their OVF.
