Fujifilm Debuts FinePix X100 APS-C Camera To Rival Micro Four Thirds
The X100 is officially debuting at the Photokina trade show, featuring an APS-C CMOS sensor, Fujinon 23mm fixed focal length lens and a Hybrid Viewfinder. It also has a 12.3MP sensor, a 2.8" LCD on the rear for controlling the menus, various manual/semi-manual modes, ISO 200-6400, 720p movie support, an accessory hot shoe, SD/SDHC/SDXC card slot, and a new viewfinder system that apparently lets users switch between the EVF and OVF while displaying important information on the latter.
Unfortunately, Fujifilm is doing more teasing than releasing. The camera won't be on sale until early 2011, and no price estimate is given. We suspect it will be fairly pricey, though, particularly with the stunning design. Will it be enough to knock off any DSLRs? Possibly, at least ones at the entry level.
