Fujifilm Finepix X 100

So far, retro design and purism on the basis of constantly new features of digital cameras was not particularly widespread. With the X 100, Fujifilm now brings a compact camera in retro style, which also has some special features. Image quality the X to can compete 100 with professional cameras. With around 1000 euros, the price is also very high, but the design object seems tailor-made for Apple users.

Already at the Photokina 2009, the compact retro camera was announced now, she will soon be in stores. With fixed focal length and large sensor Fuji provides surprises away from the appearance. However, the stylish digital camera not only for design purists is a real eye-catcher at  a2zcamerablog.

Appearance and processing

The X 100 is characterised by high-quality materials and solid workmanship. The die-cast housing with magnesium alloy is reminiscent of the legendary Leica cameras the 1960 years and should be similarly well in the hand. Also at the controls, the retro concept has been followed consistently. So can manually make up many settings-to turn on even without the camera .

Data below the surface

Not less impressive technique is hidden inside the Fujifilm X 100 send. The large APS-C CMOS sensor searches in the compact class peer to peer, even if he resolves “only” with 12.3 megapixels. The lens selected from Fuji is a surprise: the FUJINON lens has a fixed focal length of 23 mm (equivalent to 35 mm for the 24x36mm format). Unusually, in the compact class competition relies almost exclusively on zoom lenses. Fuji established the lens with an optimal adjustment to the sensor and EXR processor developed the itself. The luminous intensity of F2 achieved is also sensational when compared to zoom lenses. The hybrid-optical viewfinder newly developed by Fuji to combine the advantages of optical and electronic viewfinder. So the image in the viewfinder in optical mode should be clear and sharp, with the electronic setting, it is nevertheless possible to display additional information. There is also an LCD 2.8 inch with 1.44 million pixels available.

Conclusion

The Fujifilm Finxepix X 100 is not a camera for anyone or any woman. The flamboyant exterior, as well as the missing zoom and high price strongly restrict the circle of interested parties. Who is willing to spend just under 1000 euro, can be not only a real gem equity call, but look forward also to the excellent photos. The good workmanship, as well as many manual setting options are no longer self-evident and should look forward especially experts. Thus the FinePix X 100 is “What goes with the Apple” another candidate of our series. Unfortunately, the beautiful design object in this country is still at only a few dealers is available.
