Fujifilm FinePix X100 front
ePHOTOzine has reviewed the new Fujifilm FinePix X100. We had a look at the Fujifilm FinePix X100 prototype, at Photokina 2010. The lens offers a focal length of 23mm (135 equivalent: 35mm) and a widest aperture of F2, 12mp APS-C sensor, hybrid optical and electronic viewfinder, 720p HD video with stereo sound and full manual controls.

“The Fujifilm FinePix X100 is a unique camera in an increasingly competitive category. For a long time the difference in image quality between compact cameras with small sensors, and Digital SLRs with much larger sensors has been well known. The Fujifilm FinePix X100 aims to bring the image quality of a large sensor to a smaller camera, and should also bring the speed of DSLRs with it. Thankfully Fujifilm has delivered both excellent image quality with extremely low noise levels, as well as high speed performance, such as 5fps shooting, quick focusing, and extremely quick shutter response.”

Sony Cybershot HX100v
Sony has announced the new Sony Cybershot HX100v – a new camera with a wide angle 30x optical zoom lens (27mm), 16.2 Megapixel Exmor R CMOS sensor, ISO3200, 410 shot battery life, HD 1080p movie MPEG-4 recording, optical image stabilisation, 3.0″ 921,000-dot XtraFine LCD screen, and GPS. It will be available in black in April.

“Ideal for travellers and photo enthusiasts, the flagship Cyber-shot™ HX100V features a Vario-Sonnar lens by Carl Zeiss with T* coating on optical surfaces that virtually eliminates flare. This premium lens offers an ultra-powerful 30x optical zoom range for crisply-detailed close-ups of distant subjects. Comfortable to hold and carry, the camera’s styling echoes the body shape and control layout of larger DSLR designs. The Cyber-shot™ HX100V also features a manual control ring that can be assigned as desired to adjust focus or zoom. It’s ideal for applications like macro photography, where focus can be adjusted precisely while viewing a magnified portion of the image.”

Fujifilm FinePix X100 front
Fujifilm has announced the release date for the Fujifilm FinePix X100 – March 2011. We had a look at the Fujifilm FinePix X100 prototype, at Photokina 2010. The lens offers a focal length of 23mm (135 equivalent: 35mm) and a widest aperture of F2, 12mp APS-C sensor, and hybrid optical and electronic viewfinder.

“The X100 has been designed to appeal to the millions of DSLR users who need a slim, back-up camera, for high quality, in-fill shots, when the use of a bigger SLR system is either inconvenient or impractical. Alternatively, it can be used as a professional’s only top-end camera, if size and versatility are the primary considerations.”

“In order to suit its role, the FinePix X100 has been designed without compromise, adopting the highest possible quality lens and sensor combination with a fixed, prime F2 lens, manufactured by Fujinon to perfectly match the full size 12.3 megapixel APS-C custom sensor. Fujifilm has also developed new technology for the X100 to ensure a unique user experience. This includes the first hybrid viewfinder, which combines an electronic viewfinder system and the window-type ‘bright frame’ optical viewfinder, normally found in high-end film cameras. Launch date: Spring 2011.”

“The launch of the NX100 follows the success of the NX10, Samsung’s first mirrorless camera and the first in the world to feature an APS-C size sensor, which has changed the way photographers across the globe take pictures, and raised the bar for the industry as a whole. The NX100 shares the industry leading technology of NX10, such as an APS-C size sensor for quality images and a 3-inch AMOLED screen for easy and clear viewing. However, with the NX100, Samsung takes the mirrorless camera to the next level, by incorporating the innovations of the NX10 and improving other areas of the camera’s performance and design. While the body of the camera is slim, sleek, and stylish, the NX100 also features the intuitive i-Function lens which allows users to control their camera through the lens for the first time. The NX100 also boasts one of the fastest AF on the market today, which ensures that users never miss a moment, and an ISO that is raised to a maximum of 6400 for action shots.”

Canon Powershot SX100 ISWe’ve just published our review of the new 8 megapixel Canon Powershot SX100 IS – the camera features a 10x optical zoom lens with image stabilisation, a 2.5″ screen, DIGIC III processor, 1cm macro mode, pop-up flash, manual controls, and ISO upto 1600. The SX100 is available for £149 from Amazon UK

“This camera has been an excellent companion and has coped extremely well in a wide variety of situations – the optical image stabilisation helping in low light – and the 10x optical zoom lens allowing me to zoom into the subject. Despite my reservations about Face Detection Focus, I’ve actually found the feature useful – for quickly checking whether the subject is smiling and not blinking!”
