More Fuji Finepix X100 camera details

Fuji provided some more details about the much anticipated X100 camera.

Focusing

The Fuji X100 will have three focusing options, selected by a switch on the left hand side of the body: manual focus, AF-S (single) and AF-C (continuous). Manual focus will be achieved with the focus ring on the lens (a distance indication bar is available but no rangefinder focusing capabilities):

RAW button

Fuji X100 is able to capture 12-bit RAW images using the RAF file format. For RAW conversion, the camera will come bundled with Silkypix software (street value: $140). Fuji is also working on providing RAF support in third party applications. No information is provided at that point about buffer capacity. The RAW button has two main functions:  to instantly enable RAW format for the next picture taken and to allows RAW files to be developed in camera. The Fn button on top of the camera will provide direct access to ISO selection.

Fuji did not specify a price for the X100. Previous rumors indicated a $1000 price tag, but I have the feeling that Fuji will take advantage of the popularity of this model and will price it higher.
