Description By FujiFilm

Fusion of Optical and Electronic 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.

Instantly Switch between OVF and EVF
When you want to view the subject with maximum clarity or keep shutter time lag to a minimum, the Optical Viewfinder (OVF) impresses with stunning optical quality. For confirmation of focus, exposure, white balance and depth of field while shooting the scene, just move the lever to Electronic Viewfinder (EVF). According to the demands of the shooting conditions and your creative inspiration, the FinePix X100 empowers you with the capability to switch between two viewfinders.

Electronic Viewfinder (EVF) - 100% Coverage 1.44 million Dots of High Definition Quality
When using the EVF, you will enjoy 100% coverage on a sharp image display delivered by a 0.47-inch high-definition LCD delivering 1,440,000 dots of resolution. From precision framing of macro shots with “Live View” to quick post-shot reviewing of your results, the EVF is ready with its vividly accurate display whenever you need it.

23mm F2 Single Focal Lens (Equivalent to 35mm/135 Format)
The simple lens configuration of 6 groups/8 elements centered on a spherical lens is all manufactured from glass. High refractive index glass is used for the single high-performance double-sided aspheric lens and all convex lens elements. The pursuit of uncompromising image quality continues with the adoption of other technology in the FinePix X100 lens design including front group focusing for image quality stability and Super EBC coating for ghost-free clear images. The result is perfectly balanced optical excellence promising low aberrations, sharp resolution and faithful color reproduction.

Built-in ND Filter
Equivalent to 3f-stops, the ND filter in the Fine Pix X100 lens reduces the amount of light to 1/8. In situations where the light is very strong but you want to shoot at a slow shutter speed or do not desire to close the aperture, the built-in ND filter captures the flow of water or flowers swaying in the breeze in bright sunlight or professional portraits with a beautiful defocused background.

APS-C 12M 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.

New EXR Processor
The synergy of the APS-C CMOS Sensor and the new EXR Processor produces exceptional image quality every time you press the shutter. Featuring dual CPUs, EXR Core and a Reconfigurable Processor, this next-generation processing engine elevates the performance of Fujifilm's innovative EXR technology trio: HR (High Resolution), DR (Wide Dynamic Range) and SN (High Sensitivity & Low Noise). While delivering the highest image quality every produced by a FinePix camera, the EXR Processor also lets you enjoy a host of advanced functions such as HD Video and high-speed continuous shooting. The chip also integrates a new Vector Graphics Processor that drives the improved image quality and readability of the new GUI.

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.

Aperture Ring and Shutter Speed Dial
When you hold the camera for a shot, your left hand naturally controls the Aperture Ring and your right comfortably finds the Shutter Speed Dial. Everything is ideally positioned so you can concentrate on composing your shot. You are in complete control with a choice of aperture priority AE, shutter speed priority AE, program AE and manual exposure control.

Adjust Directly with Exposure Compensation Dial
For photographers who always want access to detailed exposure control, the Exposure Compensation Dial is positioned in easy reach of your right thumb for smooth ±2EV adjustment in 1/3 EV steps without taking your eye from the viewfinder.

ISO200~6400 Sensitivity Setting Range
The FinePix X100 lets you expand the normal sensitivity range of ISO200~6400 to ISO100~12800, and by assigning this setting to the Fn Button, extended sensitivity is available at a touch of a button.

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.

49 Points Selectable AF
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.

High-speed Contrast Detection Auto Focus
Accelerated by the combination of the high-speed signal readout of the fast CMOS sensor and the newly developed EXR Processor, the contrast detection AF deliver a huge leap in speed and precision so you never miss a shot.

2 Manual Focusing Methods
The distance index bar is displayed in the viewfinder together with the depth of field scale and aperture value, providing helpful guides for focusing. It is also possible to adjust focus by rotating the focus ring while checking the image in Live View. One touch focus point zoom is also available to confirm a sharp focus.

0.01s Shutter Time Lag
When using an OVF you reduce shutter lag (and therefore missed photo opportunities) as your eye and your subject don't have a sensor in between them to delay the transfer of the data.

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.

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.
