a little bit of everything…(Fuji X100 tested at DPreview!)


DPreview (Click here) posted the full Fuji X100 review. You can have a lot of fun by comparing the results with Micro Four Thirds cameras. Dpreview likes the camera but recognizes that :”Ultimately, perhaps the biggest problem for the X100 is that it’s competing in today’s marketplace with the new breed of compact Mirrorless Interchangeable Lens Cameras, and it’s not exactly cheap in comparison.

    The annoying part about this video is the way they read/take their cues from the script. Couldn’t they find anyone sufficiently excited about the product to be able to make this video without it? :/

  • This is such a hoot. These guys should have their own show. I just wish they would say, “we made to look like a Leica to give it optimal image quality. I love the competitive undercurrent between them.

    I wonder how many minutes they practised to reach such a high pitch of delivery.

    Re: DPR X100 review – why oh why couldn’t Fuji have held off the release for 6 months and got it right? It’s all there, it just needs fine-tuning…

    And besides, with all the hype surrounding the camera, a 6 month wait would’ve made it even *more* desirable :/

  • its a stunning camera, i am very curious if Fuji will release a version with longer focal lenght(portrait class) in the future, so you have a reporter style set.

    from DPR X100 review; “a RAW file can take 7 seconds to write even with a decently fast Class 10 SDHC card”

    Blimey that would just kill me.

    even if I could afford one. and they were in stock anywhere east of the pond. and I didn’t already have a G3 on pre-O

    Still, it is *very* pretty and seems to get rather a lot right. Interesting in RAW comparison the GH2 stands up very well next to it, even higher up (my untrained eye would give the X100 1 1/2 stops on the GH2 in noise control in the DPR test shot, less than I thought it would have)

    but….but… 7 seconds! but then maybe I’m being unreasonable, my current camera is only 8MP

  • in the in built raw editor looks really good along with the nd filter (but maybe more range), high ISO performance looks impressive too…

    LOL. Great. True pocket /camera/. I guess they have finally nailed the desired size for m43 cameras. GF3, the ball is in your park now. ;)

    Finally, Olympus’ answer to Sony. I’d like to have one, but the lens choice is limited ( as is for NEX ;) ).

    @admin Any rumors on when the 17mm pancake lens will be available for this model :) ?

    Hopefully Panasonic and Olympus read this paragraph and take note:

    “What’s perhaps most impressive about the X100, however, is the way Fujifilm has managed to build a high quality EVF into a relatively compact body. This is by itself is an achievement, that’s all-too-easy to overlook in the excitement of the finder being ‘hybrid’. But it gives the lie, once and for all, to the idea that cameras with built-in EVFs need to look like miniature SLRs, complete with faux pentaprism ‘hump’. It would be nice to see the manufacturers of mirrorless interchangeable-lens cameras following this direction, ‘folding’ an EVF’s optical path within a slimline body design.”

    I was able to handle one and even take a few photos at a camera expo in March. The handling is great, gotta love all the manual dials…

    However, because of the ridiculous price and non-zoom lens I will not buy one.
    For a street photographer it would be an impressive tool though :)
