Fujifilm Finepix X100

Fujifilm entered the all but non-existent large sensor compact camera category with the launch of the Finepix X100—a 12.3MP APS-C sensor camera with a 35mm equivalent f/2 lens, a newly developed EXR processor and a 1970’s feel.

Attempting to capitalize on the mass number of professional photographers looking for a compact with the image quality of a high-end DSLR to be used as a backup, as well as advanced amateur shooters looking for a high-end compact, FujiFilm built the Finepix X100 from the ground up. It is meant to compete directly with theLeica X1 and theSigma DP2.

The X100 features a hybrid viewfinder that allows users to switch between a rangefinder-style optical viewfinder and an electronic viewfinder. Other key features include 720p HD video capture, a magnesium alloy body and old-school analogue controls.

The camera is well equipped for low-light situations, offering a maximum ISO of 6400. Other notable specs include 5 fps continuous shooting, support for the SDXC card format and a 2.8’’ LCD.

Standout Spec: A 35mm f/2 lens coupled with a 12.3MP APS-C sensor make this a great street photography camera.
