Some Fuji x100 “insider information”

In the past few weeks the twitter feed of the The Fuji Guys has provided a lot of details on the Fuji x100 camera. Here is a compilation of their X100 related tweets (some of the information may already be publicly available):

  • You can disable the beeps if you want like all Fuji cameras.
  • Shutter lag numbers for the Fuji X100 have not been provided yet from Tokyo but it is very minimal.
  • Fuji X100 uses 4 leaf shutter not like DSLR. This allows for high speed flash sync, quiet, and durable.

  • Fuji X100 focus and shutter sounds very much like a Fuji F300EXR.
  • Fuji X100 will be released same time as all our '11 models, in March '11.
  • Nothing will be decided for colors until X100 is available in the market. We have heard interest of black and may consider.
  • Tested shots up to 3200 ISO, looks very clean however can't post as the camera is still in early pre-production.
  • No current plans for teleconverter for Fuji X100 however with the adapter ring, I am sure a 3party converter lens would work.
  • Fuji X100 looks like a fighter pilot heads up display. Press halfway down, you get exposure EVF preview.
  • AF is fast, including shutter lag but model is not final yet so cannot provide numbers.
  • Fuji x100 does not have a loud shutter sound as the Panasonic GF2. In fact, it is very quiet.
  • RAW on Fuji X100 is RAF (Fuji 12-bit Raw), custom version of Silkpix will be included for RAW conversion. In camera RAW conversion=Yes
  • Fuji X100 "bokeh" is really nice using 35mm F2. Seems to have a nicer Bokeh than my S5pro with a 35mm F1.8 (52.5mm)
  • Fuji X100 mode explained, aperture set to "A", dial set to "A" = Auto, aperture set to "a" dial set to any shutterspeed = shutter priority
