Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

The Fujifilm FinePix X100 is a high-precision digital compact camera, which combines modern technology with a traditional camera design, to deliver the ultimate in image quality.

Featuring an APS-C CMOS sensor (12.3 megapixels), a Fujinon 23mm Single Focal Length Fixed F2 lens, a 2.8-inch LCD with 460K pixels, and the world's first Hybrid Viewfinder, the FinePix X100 is built to capture exceptionally high quality images.

Key Features of the FinePix X100

High performance sensor for crisp, clear images

Custom 12.3-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor

The FinePix X100 features a custom 12.3-megapixel APS-C CMOS high-performance sensor, internally optimised and developed exclusively for this camera. One of the benefits of this sensor means that the images are crisp and clear, all the way to the edges. When shooting HD movies, the combination of the large sensor and the large aperture F2 lens, allows users to create a soft out-of-focus background, a function not available in conventional compact cameras. The ideal combination of a fixed focal length lens, high-sensitivity sensor (approximately 10 times the sensitivity of a conventional compact) and a high-performance image processor, will capture extremely high quality images from low sensitivity to high sensitivity. In standard form, the planned ISO range is from 200 to 6400, but this can be expanded to include 100 and 12800.

The newly developed EXR Processor takes EXR processing to new heights. Combined with the high-sensitivity sensor, the EXR Processor achieves the highest resolution, sensitivity and dynamic range ever produced by a FinePix digital camera, for the ultimate in image quality. The high-speed CMOS sensor read-out and the EXR Processor's enhanced focusing system contribute to the high-speed AF performance, while the combination of the optical viewfinder and extremely low shutter lag time enhance the image capture experience.

Faster processing thanks to the EXR processor

The FinePix X100 comes with a new Fujinon non-collapsible lens structure that expands the realm of photographic expression, with sharper resolution from the centre to the corners. It has a 23mm (135 equivalent: 35mm) F2 lens, with eight elements in six groups and one aspherical glass moulded lens. The adoption of the non-collapsible lens structure with minimised lens length not only contributes to the compact size, but also eliminates telescoping of the lens when the power is on, which means it's ready to start taking photos the moment the user turns it on. In addition, the lens features not only the large F2 aperture value, but also an optical architecture that maintains a high degree of resolution even when closed by 1 to 2 stops. The adoption of a 9-blade aperture diaphragm combined with the large F2 aperture and high-quality optics, lets users take photos with a beautiful circular soft out-of-focus (bokeh) effect. With macro shooting capability as close as four inches, users can explore the fun and fascination of close-up photography. The built-in ND filter (equivalent f-stop reduction of three) can be switched ON/OFF via simple in-camera settings.

The true enjoyment of photography begins with the thrill of seeing the world through a viewfinder. The new Hybrid Viewfinder has been developed to reintroduce users to this essential camera experience. It combines the window-type "bright frame" optical viewfinder found in rangefinder-type film cameras such as the classic 135-size or medium-format cameras, with the electronic viewfinder system incorporated in most compact or mirror-less digital cameras. By integrating a prism for the 1,440,000 dot LCD panel image on the viewing screen in the reverse-Galilean optical finder, the Hybrid Viewfinder can show both the shooting frame and a variety of electronic shooting data. It can also be used as a high-quality electronic viewfinder to compose or playback shots. With this ability to instantly switch between optical and electronic viewfinder modes using the simple "one touch" control, the new Hybrid Viewfinder offers users expanded freedom in the composition and enjoyment of photography in a wide range of challenging shooting conditions.

The reverse Galilean optical finder with a 0.5x magnification features all-glass elements made from high-refractive index glass and demonstrates low chromatic aberration and distortion.

One-touch switch between Optical and Electronic Viewfinder mode

In optical viewfinder (OVF) mode, the brightness of both the "bright frame" and text data is automatically adjusted according to the brightness of scene area, ensuring that shooting information is always easily and clearly viewable. Also, the displayed shooting data is constantly updated according to changes in shutter speed, exposure, sensitivity and other settings, so that the user's eye never has to leave the viewfinder. In electronic viewfinder (EVF) mode, the photographer can preview the picture or playback the result with the "through the sensor" image review and high-resolution 1,440,000-dot quality. With a flick of the one-touch lever, the user can switch to EVF to preview and confirm exposure settings, depth-of-field, and white balance, an useful capability when shooting macro shots and other scenes that are hard to confirm with only an optical viewfinder.

Stunning retro design

The FinePix X100 features a beautiful, high-quality design inspired by the classic look and feel of traditional film cameras. The top cover of the upper control deck and the bottom surface have been die-cast from magnesium alloy (semi-solid metal casting), contributing to a high-precision camera body. All dials and rings are precision milled from metal. The ergonomics of the design offer the perfect balance between compact convenience and user-friendly functionality. Traditional 'manual' dials lets the user confirm the position of the settings without turning on the power. The camera's controls have been carefully thought out to give the photographer simple and speedy access to aperture, shutter speed, exposure compensation, allowing maximum creative expression with minimum hassle and enabling the user to view settings--even when the power of the camera is turned off. The chassis has been finished with high-quality leather-like accents and is both a delight to use and a pleasure to hold.

RAW quality for image enhancement functions

Capturing the scene in RAW format is easy with just a press of the readily accessible RAW Button on the back of the camera. Photographers can use the built-in RAW Development function to process the RAW data in-camera using the camera's image quality settings. In addition to Fujifilm's original Film Simulation Modes that give photos the distinctive look of Velvia, PROVIA and ASTIA colour reversal film emulsions, X100 expands the scope of photo expression with Monochrome Mode that can be fine-tuned with R/Ye/G filter settings. Separate adjustment of shadow tones and highlight tones lets users reproduce the rich tonality of high-contrast subjects.

Additional Features

  • EVF/OVF Focus Area: The FinePix X100 offers users the choice between the 49-point auto EVF focus area or the 25-point OVF auto focus area as well as the selection of 5 different focus area sizes in EVF mode.
  • HD Movie mode: Lets users capture the action in 720p high-definition detail. Just like taking still photos, users can capture movies with aperture-priority AE and enjoy a soft, defocused background effect. In addition, the built-in HDMI Mini port allows users to easily connect the FinePix X100 to high-definition TVs for showing stills and movies.
  • Motion Panorama:With the built-in Motion Panorama function, it is easy to capture 180° and 120° panoramic photos. Later users can print the results and share the enjoyment of high-quality panoramic photography.
  • Multi-Bracketing Functions: The FinePix X100 has four types of bracketing functions: AE, ISO, Dynamic Range and Film Simulation. One click of the shutter captures 3 bracketed images of the scene so the photographer knows he's captured the moment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Who said taking great photos should be easy? 26 Oct 2011
Colour Name:Silver
Let me get these points out of the way first: if you're a novice to photography, this camera isn't for you - buy a beginner's DSLR for a comparable price (or cheaper) and learn how to use that first. If you expect to be disappointed if the X100 doesn't operate like the DSLR or compact you already own, look elsewhere - this baby is unique. If you're in neither camp, read on...

I bought this camera a few weeks ago after owning a Panasonic G3 for a couple of months, as a portable back-up to my Canon 7D. I also purchased the pancake 20mm lens, which is a nice companion, as I only wanted to shoot primes to keep the profile of the body low and leightweight. However, I was disappointed with Panasonic's offering; the image quality wasn't as good as I hoped, its low light capability was substandard and it often didn't autofocus quite where I wanted it to.

When the X100 dropped below the original £1000 retail price to £900, I began considering it. I was meticulous in my research; almost all of the reviews raved about the image quality (some saying it's almost on a par with full frame cameras, especially in low light) but criticised its handling. ALL of the reviews admired its aesthetics.

I played with one in the shop, and I was hooked; I sold my G3 and pancake lens at a small loss as soon as I could to cover most of the cost of purchasing the X100.

I have no regrets. Why? Because when you get it right, the image quality is stunning - and what else matters? In fact the images are so good that I rarely shoot in RAW, because the jpegs straight out of camera are gorgeous. I only wanted to use primes with my G3 and I shoot quite wide, so 35mm is an ideal and versatile focal length for me.

4.0 out of 5 stars So Close to Perfect 5 April 2011
By Robert Groom TOP 100 REVIEWER
Colour Name:Silver
SUMMARY: An excellent camera in its own right or in a supporting role to a DSLR. If you can live with a 35mm fixed focal length, you won't get better quality images under a variety of lighting conditions from a package this small at any price. A handful of relatively minor irritations which are likely to be fixed with firmware updates do little to detract from what is a superlative photographic device - the most major of these include poor AF performance in macro mode, partial functionality lockup whilst writing to the SD card and almost unusable manual focus. If and when these are addressed with firmware updates, I'll gladly increase the score to 5*, but for now, I'm afraid I have to shave one point.

UPDATE JULY 2011: As of Firmware update 1.1, manual focus is somewhat improved, but still pretty much unusable for shooting anything moving. Focus lock-on in macro mode is still very poor in low light. Some functions are still disabled when writing to memory. Several other issues addressed. See the Fuji website for full details.

BUILD: My expectations of build quality had already been set fairly high, but on the basis of the shots I'd seen, I wasn't sure that I liked the finish of the metal body. It looked a little too much like silver paint rather than metal. However, I can assure you that in the flesh it has the obvious appearance of satin finished alloy; this is one extremely classy looking item. I know this will be important to some people. Also, despite some comments I've read about it being a bit `too light' I tend to disagree. It has a nice solid heft worthy of a quality camera. It does not in any way feel like a cheap plastic bodied item. The closest thing I can compare it to in terms of feel is my equally solid, metal-bodied Canon G9.

5.0 out of 5 stars Technological marvel in a timeless classic body 27 Mar 2011
Colour Name:Silver
First impressions this is a solid piece of engineering, feels heavier than you'd expect (if you were expecting a Chinese compact)! Japanese build quality is superb. Switches, dials, aperture ring, etc, are all very high quality, with good detents at every position. In the box you also get a battery, charger + lead, USB lead, manual, CD, strap and attachment pieces, and a semi display box complete with black satin cloth! Even the strap attachment has been carefull designed with leather patches to prevent any scratching of the body. But no SD card, nor an LCD screen cover. The viewfinder works superbly, autoswitching when you bring up to the eye. Super bright. The display is customisable, in either viewfinder or in LCD. The menus are quite intuitive, some are deeper than others, although the jog dial is not that great in rotation mode, although you can use up or down just fine. The macro mode doesn't focus through the viewfinder, only LCD, this is a GOOD idea because there is some parallax error when getting close. The various colour and B&W modes are easily accessible, and filters work well. The display (either optical, or LCD) has just about everything you could possibly imagine in it, electronic spirit level is nice touch. It is more sophisticated than my Nikon D200 DSLR and handles superbly. The sensor sensitivity is also way beyond with punchy colours - if you want them e.g. on Velvia synthesis which used to be my film of choice, but you have several options for this. Minor gripes - no LCD screen cover, price is well up there, the optional case is very expensive, and so are the few extras like filter rings. However, I think the hype was worth it - a compact camera that has a sensor quality and controls that make you want to take photos, rather than being a compromise. Read more ›
