Dear God,

I don’t care if I’m gonna lose all my hair next year. I don’t care if I’m gonna get any fatter. I don’t care if my other cameras are gonna hate me. I don’t care if my job sucks. I don’t care if Mondays are still gonna be blue. I don’t care if the price of beer increases. I don’t care if they stop producing potato chips. I don’t care if iPhones can print money. I don’t care if I come back as a cow in my next life. I don’t care. I don’t care.

But I want this …

Fujifilm has announced the X100, a large-sensor compact camera aimed at professional and enthusiast photographers. Based around a 12Mp APS-C CMOS sensor, Fuji EXR processor and 23mm F2 Fujinon lens (equivalent to a 35mm semi-wideangle), the classically-styled camera features traditional analogue controls for shutter speed, aperture and exposure compensation. Of particular note is the new ‘hybrid’ viewfinder system which allows the user to switch between optical and electronic viewfinders and project detailed shooting information into the OVF. The spec is rounded off by 720p HD movie recording, a 460k dot 2.8″ LCD, flash hot shoe, and magnesium alloy top and base-plate castings. The camera will be available from early 2011.

  3. The others ok la, I don’t care… but no chips? CANNOT!!

  4. wahahaha…..be careful what you wish for hor………………

  5. @lawry : Yeah … wowwwwwwwwwww!!!

    @witchy : Okay. I take back the chips part.

    @nelly : I don’t care! X(

  6. Looks like many of us are going to be broke by buying the new cameras….so many tempting cameras launching next year…..

    This vintage had seduced me too…..damn!!! Wondering if it is gonna cost like a Leica….

  7. Did I hear someone say he has stopped buying?

  8. @Jer : Hahaha! Poisons are queuing. Just drink it! Don’t think! Just drink!

    @cyanwater : *cough* I … did. Stopped buying but not sure for how long. *cough*

  9. @cyanwater : Btw … I’m sure you’ll be going for this one. Right? 😛 I’m telling Jim to sell of his lousy Leica and go for this. 😀

  10. wow this looks totally amazing!

    how are u with ur NC white? XD

  11. @suzie : Haha! It is super sexy, ain’t it? I’ve yet to finish my first roll on the NC white though. LOL

    😛

  13. If only my iPhone can print money…
    I buy each of you an X100!

  14. YES! I saw this too! Totally sexy! But I seriously doubt I can afford it since it’s rumoured it will cost about 150,000 yen, which will be roughly about S$2,300… I might need to sell my entire DSLR set plus a few others plus cash topup to raise enough money for this X100… But if my phone can print money, THAT WILL BE GREAT!!! Hahaha~

  15. @nelly : Replied you! Hahaha!

    @Ta : Ok … you go try find how it is done and get back to us soon. 😀

    @kaxdd : Yeah the price is supposed to be like 130,000 to 150,000 yen. Grrrr!

  16. How to resist!!! But can’t change lens?!! Wth!

  17. WOW…..thats expensive!!! So are we paying for the body or photo quality? Looks like the vintage and old are returning…..

  18. @cyanwater : So what will it be? Buy or no buy? 😀

    @Jer : Oh yeah … super pricey!

  19. I think this is a very expensive P&S camera, but with the Fujinon lens, your images are going to be super sharp and full of constrast. I think the high price is going to be justified by the OVF and the overall vintage cosmetic.

  20. @kaxdd : Yup. I agree.

  21. UPDATE

    Hope sprung back! It is said to be approx US$1000!

    http://www.engadget.com/2010/09/21/fujifilms-finepix-x100-ships-march-2011-for-1-000-we-go-hands/

    The itch is back!

  22. WOOHOO~~~~~~~~~~~~~

  23. wow thats a lot of money….. :'(

  24. muahahahhha, muahahahahahah.. mnuaaaahhhhahahahahahahahhhahhhhaaaa!

  25. @Mijonju : Arggggh!!!! So any news from your side about its actual price yet?

  26. Seems like Asian cnet also concur that the camera will retail around US$1,000 next Mar.

    That gives you…6 months to come up with the money! You just have to set aside SGD$235 per month (excluding shipping cost) to own this beauty! 😛

  27. Dear God,

    Please make sure the Asian CNET pricing is correct. At least there is a bit of hope that I’ll be able to afford this. LOL!

  28. http://asia.cnet.com/crave/2010/09/22/fujifilm-x100-price-announced/

    Here, posted the link for you.

    I think safely saving $300 per month will get you one. 🙂

  29. OMG! Yay! Looks like time to save up to buy myself a birthday present in March. 😀

  30. @wynth : Thanks for the update.

  31. looks amazing….back to past with design and go to the future with price 😉

  32. March next year?! OK, just in time to ask for a birthday present too! 😉

  33. @nefoto : This is gonna get lots of old cam addicts excited about digital. 😀

    @cyanwater : How sweet! At least you can ask Ken for one!

  34. Been waiting forever for a camera like this!!! I will be buying one!!!1

  35. @m r nelson : I’m sure there are millions out there who think just that way. Hahaha! Can’t wait to see the real thing.
