Fuji X-S1

The Fuji X-S1 is a new ultrazoom model that takes a place next to the Fuji X10 and Fuji X100 in the premium X-series line.

The Fuji X-S1 features a 12MP EXR CMOS sensor that is a larger 2/3″ format.  The X-S1 features a manual 26x zoom lens (24-624mm equivalent) at f/2.8-5.6 and 2x enhanced digital zoom, which Fuji claims offers expanded reach with minimal quality loss.

The Fuji X-S1 captures full resolution images at 7 fps and will record 1080p HD video.

The X-S1 should be available later this month at $799.95.  Check availability at Amazon.com.
