I just got my hands on the Fuji X100, and after reading all the praises this APS-C format camera has received for its image quality, I wanted to take a closer look.
Below you will find this week’s firmware updates. Hit the manufacturer website links for more details and download instructions for the firmware. [Read more…]
The Fuji X100 has been scarce since its announcement, with many in the US wondering just when they’ll get their chance to put hands on one. If you’ve been waiting, it looks like Amazon has some in stock now.
Only 17 more left in stock at the time of this post. Better hurry.
Update: It took 25 minutes to blow through the 17 available (at 3AM). However, Amazon says it has more in stock, but it just takes 1-2 days extra to process the orders (guess they’re in the back of the warehouse, eh?).
Update #2: Wow. Those are gone too. The X100 may be some hot stuff this year…
Fuji has made quite a show of its APS-C format, fixed lens X100 camera. Today, Fuji dropped what should be its final press release on the X100, detailing availability, price and full spec list.

The Fuji HS20EXR is a follow up to the popular Fuji HS10. The HS20EXR features a whopping 30x zoom lens (24mm-720mm equivalent) and a 16MP CMOS sensor. The HS20 also packs a 3-inch tilting LCD and an electronic viewfinder. The HS20 can capture photos in RAW format.
In addition to capturing photos, the HS20 can capture 1080p HD video, and features a high-speed movie capture at 320fps. For those wishing to add an external flash to the hot shoe, the HS20 now features TTL metering for auto-flash performance (unlike the HS10 which only triggered a “dumb” flash). Fuji currently offers two compatible hot shoe flash for TTL metering with the HS20.
The HS20EXR is powered by AA batteries and will be available in March 2011 at an initial retail price of $499.95. Check availability on Amazon.com.
