Fuji Announces Wide Angle Lens Adapter For The X100

Interesting to see today that Fuji have unexpectedly launched both a 28mm wide angle lens adapter for the X100 and also firmware version 1.3 .  I think it’s pretty safe to say in that case that we can expect to see this camera current for at least another 6 months.  Now would be as good a time to buy one as any.  I still have my own X100 and yes I still love it!  I’ll definitely be taking a look at this adapter when it comes out. Valhalla, N.Y., May 15, 2012 – FUJIFILM North America Corporation today announced an

Fuji Launches New X10 Camera – The X100’s Little Brother!

Hot on the heels of their success with the X100 (which I reviewed and loved!), Fuji has today officially launched the X10.  Where the X100 looked to redefine large sensor, compact prime lens market with it’s APS-C sensor and 24mm f2.0 lens, the X10 seeks to redefine the premium point and shoot market with a 28-112mm zoom lens and a 12MP 2/3″ sensor.  To be honest it’s caught me a little bit by surprise because we knew about the X100 for many months before it’s launch and this one seems to have come out of the blue apart from a

Fuji X10 Vs. X100

The Fuji x100 is a phenomenally successful camera, even 6 months after it hit store shelves it’s still in short supply. I reviewed it myself and fell in love with it but the price tag isn’t for everyone, neither is the fixed 24mm prime lens. In September 2011 Fujifilm announced the X10 which addresses both of these considerations so I figured I would write up a comparison to help people choose between the two. At first glance they look fairly similar as both are based around the same rear screen and controls and a similar magnesium chassis but in fact

Fujifilm X100 priced at $1200 – Pre Orders now being taken!

I’ve written about this camera several times because I am personally very excited.  You can read my full preview of the x100 here.  The camera has received an incredible amount of attention since it was first shown at PMA and I expect it to sell very well.  If you’d like to get one shortly after it’s release you will most definitely have to place a pre order.  Adorama has the X100 for  $1199.99 right here. B&H has also followed suit and has the camera for pre order at the same price.

Fujifilm Finepix X100 preview

Fujifilm’s X100 was first revealed at Photokina in 2010 and it’s retro styling instantly captured peoples attention.  The X100 has yet to hit store shelves but Fujifilm has been slowly releasing more and more information about this camera to tantalize prospective buyers.  Sadly this is a hands-off preview, I have not yet used one of these cameras in person but since we still don’t know exactly when this camera will come onto the market I thought I’d write a little about what we already know of the camera.

UPDATE: The camera is now up for pre order at Adorama!  Get in line while you can !

Quick post about a sexy looking new camera – Fujifilm x100

Here’s an interesting announcement from an unlikely place.  Fujifilm just released a press release for a new compact camera featuring a 12MP APS-C sized sensor,720p video recording and a fixed 23mm (35mm equivalent) f2.0 lens.  The styling of the camera is what caught my eye.  It looks more like a Leica than a Fujifilm!  Magnesium top and bottom plates wrapped in a leather grip with mechanical metallic dials on top for shutter speed and ISO and what even seems to be an aperture ring on the lens!  The camera is not due for public release until January 2011 but it looks to be a great competitor to something like the Leica X1 or Sigma DP-2.  No news on MSRP yet but I will update with more info when available.

Full press release after the break and more photos!
