Fujifilm officially launches the FinePix X100 in North America and confirms that it will ship to consumers in March.
The Fuji X100 is the well-publicized fixed-lens digital camera we were first introduced to at Photokina last year. With its retro rangefinder good looks, the X100 is equipped with a 12.3 APS-C CMOS sensor and a fixed focal length 23mm f/2 lens. We had another hands-on opportunity with it this year at CES, taking a closer look at the camera’s manual control dials.
In case you’ve missed it, here’s what else we can expect the X100 to have:
- A 2.8-inch 460k-dot LCD
- Native ISO range of 200-6400 expandable to 100-12800
- 9-blade aperture diaphragm
- Built-in ND filter
- A 49-point auto EVF focus area or a 25-point OVF auto focus area
- 720p HD video recording and built-in HDMI Mini connector
- A Motion Panorama mode for capturing 180 or 120 degree panoramic shots
- AE, ISO, Dynamic Range and Film Simulation bracketing modes (3 images captured)
