B&H now has the Fuji XF1 retro point and shoot camera in stock. As noted in my hands-on time with the camera, the XF1 features a unique lens twist/pull function to power the camera on, as well as a rotating zoom feature for the lens.
The Fuji XF1 is available in black, red and tan, all of which are currently in stock here at B&H Photo.
The $200 savings on the Fuji X100 has been extended through the end of 2012. Until then you can find the 2011 Camera of the Year for $999 instead of the normal $1199 price. Check it out here at B&H Photo.
The Fuji XF1 is the latest X-Series point and shoot camera. It features a retro-style that’s as much of what defines the camera as technical features like the 12MP EXR CMOS sensor and f/1.8 lens.
The XF1 is certainly a pretty camera, and those specs put it near the top of point and shoot models around. The prints from the XF1 that I saw at PhotoPlus looked solid, which is promising for a camera as pretty as this one. [click to continue…]
