Fujifilm Finepix X100: Specs Almost Like Leica X1

Today has been a busy day for camera enthusiasts as a number of these devices have been announced, such as the Pentax K-5 DSLR. However, it is the Fujifilm Finepix X100 that has got my attention, as it is a welcome break from the range of four-thirds cameras that we have been inundated with in recent months.

The Finepix X100 is a hybrid with its 12MP lens and APS-C DSLR sensor. Just looking at the camera screams old school, most of this is thanks to a viewfinder — something that is missing from most digital cameras on the market.

This is no ordinary viewfinder though, as it will overlay certain information for you. Not only will you be looking at the actual image, but you can also access the data, as you would on an LCD display on most other digital cameras.

Mic Wright from Electric Pig picks up on the fact that the looks and some of the specs are much the same as the Leica X1 — although the latter is certain to have the edge. The release date for the Finepix X100 is not expected to be until early next year.
