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 offers 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. The upper control deck and bottom surface of the camera has been cast from magnesium alloy, (semi-solid metal casting), to create a high-precision body with high rigidity. All dials on the upper control deck are also fabricated from metal. Premium quality is evident in every detail. The chassis has been finished with high-quality leather accents, allowing you to indulge in pure photographic satisfaction. Fujifilm's unique Hybrid Viewfinder is unparalleled and the FinePix X100 is the first camera to feature this innovation. 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 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. 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.
Hybrid Viewfinder - There's an indescribable pleasure that peering through a viewfinder provides. And now Fujifilm have taken this further with the launch of the newly developed Hybrid Viewfinder. Whether you're framing your shot through the Optical Viewfinder (OVF), or Electronic Viewfinder (EVF), your eye will not only see the subject and scene, but also a range of shooting data projected by an integrated high-definition LCD panel. This perfect marriage of intuitive analogue operation and state-of-the-art digital functionality gives birth to the discovery of new dimensions of enjoyment behind the lens of the ultimate compact.
23mm F2 Single Focal Lens (Equivalent to 35mm/135 Format) - The best image quality without compromise, packed into a slim compact body that you want to take everywhere with you... These were the aims when the FinePix X100 was being developed. And they have been achieved through the incorporation of a newly developed, non-interchangeable, non-collapsible, fixed focal length lens. While featuring the generous brightness of a maximum F2 aperture, the large-diameter rear lens group is integrated into the body for an ultra-slim profile. In addition, the optimization of the sensor for this special lens fully exploits the advantage of a fixed focal length lens for superior edge-to-edge image quality.
APS-C CMOS Sensor - Packing 12.3 million pixels, the large APS-C CMOS sensor debuts a new standard in high sensitivity/low noise performance and superior image quality, achieving about 10 times the sensitivity of any conventional FinePix compact to date. In addition, using an ingenious approach to the drive and mechanics of the sensor, heat generated by the large-size sensor is effectively dissipated, preventing degradation of performance and image quality.
Film Simulation Mode - Just like choosing the ideal film for your creative direction, this easy-to-use mode lets you simulate the color and tonal qualities of color reversal film types loved by professional photographers: the true-to-scene natural look of PROVIA, the vibrant tonality and saturated colors of Velvia, and the silky soft look and beautiful skin tones of ASTIA. The FinePix X100 makes it simple to take photographs with distinctive Fujichrome color - a quality that only film could previously capture.
Expanded Dynamic Range - Dynamic range can be expanded to prevent “blackout” or “washout” of the subject in high contrast lighting and bring out the detail in shadow and highlights. In addition to automatic optimization, the user can manually select 100%, 200% and 400% dynamic range. Capture natural gradations from the brightest to the darkest parts of the image just as the eye sees them.
Powerful Built-in Auto Bracketing Functions - Empowering you with a choice of 4 different auto bracketing functions (AE, ISO Sensitivity, Dynamic Range and Film Simulation), the FinePix X100 lets you experience the wide world of photographic expression.
5fps High Speed Continuous Shooting - The combination of the high readout speed of the CMOS sensor and the improved processing speed of the EXR Processor enable the FinePix X100 to shoot 5 frames per second (maximum capacity: 10 frames). Capture a series of exposures of moving subjects and other challenging photographic scenes with high-speed continuous shooting performance and later select the best shot.
Focusing - Within the screen, the auto focus area is divided into a 49-point matrix (25 points in the case of OVF). AF accurately and swiftly recognizes the primary subject and brings it into crystal clear focus, and also lets you freely select the position of the AF frame. Using the electronic viewfinder and the LCD monitor, you can also change the AF frame size and pinpoint the focusing.
Motion Panorama 180 - Photo Gallery Quality - As you sweep the camera across the scene, the FinePix X100 captures multiple images and seamlessly stitches them together into a single panorama photo. Even when enlarged to an A3 size print, there is virtually no loss of resolution. Holding the camera horizontally or vertically, Motion Panorama lets you shoot 120° or 180° views.
Super Intelligent Flash - Adopting Fujifilm's original TTL automatic flash control technology, the built-in high-precision flash system is ready to supplement lighting when shooting small items or capturing special occasions indoors and other low-light scenes. When even more light is required or shooting with the lens hood attached, you can use a separately sold TTL flash.
HD Movie - Exploiting the amazing quality and performance of the large CMOS sensor and high-speed processor, the FinePix X100 can shoot up to 10 minutes of high-definition movies (720p, 24fps). In addition to full AUTO exposure, you can also shoot with aperture priority AE. Taking advantage of the bright F2 lens, you can capture movies with a softly defocused “bokeh” background. Later with plug-and-play ease, connect the camera directly to your TV with the HDMI cable (sold separately) and enjoy sharing your movies complete with stereo audio on the big screen.
