The Fuji FinePix X100. It’s one of the more talked about and lusted after cameras on the market right now. It’s also one quirky beast full of contrasts. Reviewers are quick to point out every annoying flaw, yet are also quick to tell you how much they love it and the resulting images. Thanks to a generous friend, I finally had the chance to test drive it myself for an afternoon.
Before I say more, however, let me state that this is not a full review. It’s barely a quick review. In fact, it’s really a set of personal impressions based on several hours walking around town playing with the camera in hand. There’s no science here. Just my own unfettered opinion. Got it? Good.
Canon Inc. announced today that it has successfully developed an APS-H-size*1 CMOS image sensor that delivers an image resolution of approximately 120 megapixels (13,280 x 9,184 pixels), the world’s highest level*2 of resolution for its size.
