Fuji Finepix X100
Looking for the digital equivalent of a classic rangefinder camera? Try the Fujifilm FinePix X100. It has a fixed focal length 35mm lens (equivalent in 35mm format) with a very bright f/2.0 aperture (a classic lens choice for rangefinders) and a 9-blade diaphragm for beautiful blur in out-of-focus areas (bokeh)--plus a very large (approximately 4-5 times the size of a typical compact camera sensor) APS-C CMOS sensor with 12.3MP of resolution.

Design and Control
Fall in love with photography all over again.
Inspired by the beauty and form of classic cameras from the past, the FinePix X100 combines all the latest technical digital innovations in a beautiful, traditional chassis which oozes class and prestige.
Echoing the functional aesthetics of analogue film cameras, the ‘manual’ dials have been carefully positioned to give the photographer easy control over creative shooting. Aperture, shutter speed and exposure compensation can be checked even before the camera is turned on.
The ergonomics of the design offer the perfect balance between compact convenience and user-friendly operation. Every control has been carefully considered to give the photographer fast access to aperture, shutter speed and exposure compensation, to allow maximum creative expression with minimum hassle.
A perfect fusion of optical and electronic viewfinders.
FUJIFILM’s unique Hybrid Viewfinder is unparalleled and the FinePix X100 is the first camera to feature this innovation. While traditionalists prefer the clear, sharp view of an ‘optical’ viewfinder, modern electronic displays, giving data like shutter speed, aperture, white balance, exposure correction and ISO can aid photographers tremendously. The new Hybrid Viewfinder on the FinePix X100 aims to give the ‘best of both worlds.’
The Hybrid Viewfinder combines the window-type “bright frame” optical viewfinder found in high-end film cameras, such as 35mm or medium-format cameras, and the electronic viewfinder system incorporated in fixed single lens or mirrorless digital cameras. The reverse Galilean optical finder with a 0.5x magnification features all-glass elements made from high-refractive index glass and offers low chromatic aberration and distortion.
By using an integrated prism for the 1,440,000 dot LCD panel image on the viewing screen in the reverse-Galilean optical viewfinder, the Hybrid Viewfinder can show both the shooting frame and a variety of shooting data. Of course, it can also be used as a high-quality electronic viewfinder to compose or playback shots. With the ability to instantly switch between optical and electronic viewfinder images with a simple “one touch” control; the new Hybrid Viewfinder offers users expanded freedom in the composition and enjoyment of photography, in a range of challenging shooting conditions.
Prime Fujinon Lens
Built from the ground up: introducing the ultimate FUJINON Lens.
Conceived and created by people who accept nothing less than excellence, FUJINON presents a masterpiece in optical technology. This newly developed lens offers a focal length of 23mm (135 equivalent: 35mm) that lets you capture a wide range of subjects while maintaining high resolution and optical clarity. It also features a large F2 aperture which not only delivers both ample brightness and high contrast sensitivity, but also achieves a high level of resolution when the aperture is closed by 1 or 2 stops.
In addition to this strong specification, the system design includes an aspherical lens, a 9-blade aperture diaphragm and a built-in ND filter. The adoption of a non-collapsible lens structure with minimised lens length not only contributes to the compact size of this model, but it also eliminates telescoping of the lens when the power is on. FUJIFILM has selected this fixed focal length lens for the FinePix X100 because this configuration consistently delivers premier image quality in every way; from exceptional resolution and minimal aberration, to excellent light volume in image corners.
The FinePix X100 FUJINON lens really is in a class of its own.
Enjoy 10cm Macro Performance
This FUJINON lens specification allows the FinePix X100 to achieve macro shots from a distance of only 10cm, bringing you the creative freedom to explore the power of macro photography with impressive close-ups. Taking full advantage of the large APS-C sensor and F2 brightness, you can capture your subject in larger-than-life detail with the background softly out of focus.
Neutral Density Filter
Featuring a built-in ND filter (equivalent f-stop reduction of 3), the lens can enhance depth-of-field even in bright shooting conditions by enabling the aperture to be kept wide open. Shutter speed can also be reduced to capture scenes such as waterfalls, or any shot where intentional blur is required.
APS-C CMOS Sensor
Bringing you the ultimate in image quality
FUJIFILM has customised an APS-C size 12.3 megapixel CMOS sensor for the FinePix X100; resulting in an ideal match for the performance characteristics of the 23mm F2 lens, which also works in tandem with the newly developed EXR Processor. The combination of a fixed focal length lens, a high-sensitivity sensor (approx. 10 times the sensitivity of a conventional compact*) and a high-performance image processor will capture exceptionally high-quality images over the entire sensitivity range, from low to high ISO settings.
*Comparison with other FinePix compact camera models.
When shooting HD movies, the combination of the large sensor and the large aperture F2 lens, lets users shoot a soft out-of-focus touch (bokeh) — a capability not available in conventional compact cameras. The high-speed CMOS sensor read-out and the EXR Processor’s enhanced focusing system, both contribute to the high-speed Auto Focus performance, while the combination of the optical viewfinder and extremely low shutter time lag enhance the pleasure of every shot.
Pioneers of image processing technology
Fully exploiting the superior imaging performance of the FUJINON lens and high-sensitivity sensor, the newly developed EXR Processor achieves the highest image quality of any FinePix camera produced to date. Featuring improved high resolution, high sensitivity, low noise and wide dynamic range technologies, the enhanced EXR processor also features a more rapid signal processing response.
By re-examining every aspect from response to the circuit structure throughout the entire development of the EXR processor, FUJIFILM have achieved a significant leap in performance, that has resulted in the ability to deliver a more responsive and faithful reproduction of the image. In addition, the graphical interface, (style and rendering of the LCD information), has been upgraded in the newly developed LSI to enhance the user experience and to improve the clarity of the information presented.
