Fuji Finepix X100

This is the Fuji Finepix X100, a camera quite unlike any other! I had the chance to play with one over CNY in Subang, just before we returned to Abu Dhabi.

Fuji did a brilliant job trying to make the packaging Apple- or Leica-like :-)

What you get if you decide to invest RM$3,200 - 3,600 in what is probably Fuji's halo-product at the moment ... 12 megapixel APS-C image sensor, 23mm f/2.o Fujinon lens, (equivalent to 35mm on standard 35mm format), body made from high-quality steel and encased in leather, Hybrid viewfinder, built-in 3-stop ND filter, and video capability - 720P HD w/stereo sound.

With and without the optional lens hood, not cheap about RM$120-180.

What I like ...
1) Incredible build quality and retro-feel and looks,
2) Huge sensor (Comparable to a crop-frame DSLR!),
3) High ISO (Low light) capability and colour rendition - Excellent unwrapping of box and real-life review here,
4) Recommendation from my pro-photographer friend (and his wife!).
