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
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.
World's first Hybrid Viewfinder

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.
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.
- 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.
Top customer reviews
This is not the cameras fault, as I have seen in some online reviews, but the user not understanding how the contrast focus system works. I know, I have done this a few times myself early on and it takes some getting used to. On that note, it is not a camera that you can just hand to someone to take a photo for you, for exactly the reasons I have just shared, so if you're buying it as a gift, they may be disappointed with the results, initially at least. Another thing to point out, update your firmware to the latest version(2.01), because it has made a hell of a difference to the operability of the camera, from autofocus speed(in all lights) to shooting up close and personal. Okay, so the other highlights of this camera: beautiful bokeh, images are tack sharp from F4 upwards, very good at F2.8 and slightly soft at F2, but this is only when shooting up close. At normal shooting distances the camera is sharp at all apertures, providing you nail the focus. The manual focus is now very useable and has focus peaking to assist as well(only via the latest firmware). Autofocus is now much quicker than it was, although if you're into sports, you'll be disappointed. Personally, I use zone-focus in manual mode, F8 at 3.5metres and autoiso giving a good depth of field from 2m to infinity. Used this way the auto iso sorts the exposure whilst allowing you to take shots almost instantaneously in the daytime, which is ideal for those fleeting moments in the street or capturing the kids. Finally, before I've written a book, there is a good book available on how to use the X100 optimally on the Kindle store and I'd recommend that to anyone buying this camera(I'm not on commission, honest!) and just go out and take some photos. If you're like me, you won't be able to stop doing so.
Yes as others have said the focus ring needs to be turned a lot which lets this camera down (hence only 4 stars) and some say the auto focus is a bit slow, but it works fine for me, some also say there is no anti-shake on this camera but do you really need that on a 35mm lens? I'm getting on in years and don't have the steadiest of hands and had good results at 1/60th sec and with this cameras performance at 800iso who needs it, and the viewfinder is just a dream.
I was a little hesitant about buying this camera after reading some reviews but I am now glad I took the plunge and now use this camera mainly as a street camera, my main camera is a Nikon D90 which is good but you don't always want to carry it around in places that it would be noticed and possibly stolen.
My Tri-X days seem to be back
UPDATE: Ten months down the line and this camera developed a fault, namely a loose connection inside the camera which meant it would not always turn on, so I sent it back to Amazon for a refund as I had lost confidence in its reliability.
