Fujifilm X100: Something Truly Different

"Imagine a retro-styled, Micro Four Thirds-sized compact camera with an optical viewfinder. Now, imagine that same camera having a switch that throws all sorts of useful data into your line of sight."

Real, honest-to-goodness breakthroughs in the digital camera space are a bit more rare than the marketing folks at the camera companies would have you believe - many features are just tweaked versions of previous features. The Fujifilm X100 though offers something that I haven't seen before: an optical viewfinder that overlays image data in real-time. Pretty slick! This video, although a bit herky-jerky (that's a hard thing to shoot!) shows you how this functions. Nicely done Fujifilm! Hopefully the image quality will stack up, because that's one nice little camera. I'm not a big fan of the retro design, but it does have a certain cachet. Too bad I missed this at CES!

This is random, but isn't it weird for Fujifilm to continue to have the world "film" in their company name? It seems odd when talking about a digital camera...
