Fujifilm X100S camera lens

The Fujifilm X100S camera features a Fujinon 23mm F2 fixed lens that consists of 8 elements in 6 groups, and includes a high-performance double-sided aspherical element and highly-refractive converging glass elements that delivers a high level of detailed performance with minimal aberration, excellent sharpness and beautiful color reproduction. The Fujinon lens also adds a proprietary HT-EBC coating to effectively control image flare and ghosting. Another strength of the Fujinon 23mm F2 fixed lens is the soft, round-shaped bokeh that is achieved from the 9 blade lens diaphragm that also includes a built-in 3-stop ND filter. Moreover, the Fujinon lens allows users to get as close as 3.94" from a subject in macro mode for stunning close-up shots.

X-Trans CMOS II Sensor and New EXR Processor II

The Fujifilm X100S camera's new X-Trans CMOS II Sensor is the successor to the original X-Trans CMOS sensor that features a unique, highly randomized color filter arrangement that removes the need for an optical low-pass filter, allowing it to maximize the amount of light it receives directly to capture much finer image details. The Fujifilm X100S professional camera effectively reduces noise by almost a full stop, even in low light shooting, to produce crisp images with minimal grain. Using its newly-developed X-Trans CMOS II Sensor with built-in phase detection, the Fujifilm X100S is capable of autofocus speeds as fast as 0.08 seconds, and together with the new EXR Processor II, delivers a start-up time of nearly 0.5 seconds and a shutter lag time of just 0.01 seconds with a shooting interval of 0.5 seconds. The Fujifilm camera is capable of a burst shooting rate of up to 6 frames per second at the full resolution of 16.3 megapixels.

Fujifilm X100S with Hybrid Viewfinder

Fujifilm introduced the world's first Hybrid Viewfinder with the original Fujifilm X100, and improves upon that with the all new X100S's high-definition Hybrid Viewfinder that allows users to switch between two viewfinder options: optical or electronic. The optical viewfinder (OVF) shows subjects in the same natural bright clarity as seen with naked eye, while the electronic viewfinder (EVF) shows useful composition information including focus check, exposure, white balance and depth of field. This new Fujifilm X100S viewfinder offers an easy-to-see magnification of 0.5 at a 23mm focal length and a horizontal apparent field of view of 26 degrees, while the all-glass construction uses high-refractive index glass to minimize chromatic aberrations and distortion. The electronic viewfinder uses a 100% coverage, extra high resolution, 2.36 million dot high definition LCD panel. It shows depth-of-field during macro shooting, as well as white balance settings, allowing users to accurately compose their shot while continuously looking through the viewfinder.

Design of the new professional Fujifilm camera

Following the tradition of the Fujifilm X100, the all-new Fujifilm X100S continues to prove that advanced digital imaging technology can come in a boldly-designed, premium-built body. The Fujifilm X100S's top and base parts are made of magnesium alloy to achieve a lightweight and resilient build, while the dials and rings have been milled from solid metal, with attention paid to the finer details such as finger grips for enhanced operability. The exterior is finished with synthetic leather, which is durable and resistant to the environment while offering the practical benefits of additional grip and comfort.

Fujifilm X100S Filter features

To give users even more creative possibilities, the Fujifilm X100S also features Fujifilm's proprietary Film Simulation Modes which includes ten film simulation options that replicate the results achieved by Fujifilm color reversal films (Velvia / PROVIA / ASTIA) and professional color negative films (PRO Neg. Std / PRO Neg. Hi), along with three B/W filter effects (Ye filter, R filter and G filter). The Fujifilm X100S also offers eight Advanced Filter functions for additional artistic functionality, including Pop Color, Toy Camera, Miniature, Dynamic Tone, Partial Color, Soft Focus, High Key and Low Key.

Full HD video recording with the Fujifilm X100S

The Fujifilm X100S digital camera captures full HD video perfectly with a smooth rate of 60 frames per second. Together with a high bit-rate recording rate of 36Mbps, the X100S ensures that users capture every movement and sounds in crystal clear clarity, even in low-light conditions. During video recording, Fujifilm X100S camera users have access to many of the additional modes available in still image capture, including Film Simulations, white balance settings and even the Intelligent Hybrid Autofocus function for high-speed and high-precision focusing.

 

Fujifilm X100S price

The Fujifilm X100S price is at $1345 USD. The new professional Fujifilm camera prices may vary from country to country. Visit the Fujifilm website for technical X100S specifications and optional camera accessories.
