100x Intelligent Digital Zoom

Fujifilm’s super resolution technology offers an incredible 100x Intelligent Digital Zoom.
Newly developed image processing software produces excellent quality results throughout the whole image, right to the edges of the frame. Distant subjects are captured in crisp detail even when at the full zoom.

  • 50x Optical Zoom(1200mm**)
  • 100x Intelligent Digital Zoom(2400mm**)

The newly developed FUJINON optical 50x zoom lens (24mm – 1200mm)** incorporates a combination of aspherical lenses and ED lens.
It provides a bright aperture rating of F2.8 – F5.6 with 13 elements in 11 groups. The lens effectively combines aspherical and ED elements for reduced aberration and superior image quality.
With Super-Macro Mode capturing subjects as close as 1cm from the lens, the FinePix S1 seamlessly covers an enormous focal range with no need to ever change lenses.
Lens shift image stabilization ensures that even hand-held shots are free from blur.

High Resolution

Stunning high resolution images can be achieved from the center of the frame to the edges when telephoto shooting.
The newly developed processor ensures low noise levels in high sensitivity shooting at night.
From the wide-angle to the telephoto end of the lens, you can produce high quality images with superb detail — you’ll capture everything from the small leaves on trees to actual human hairs.

Movie Functions

Dominik Fusina admits: the leaked X-W1 is a fake!

[NOTE: As I told you here, the Xf56mm f/1.2 and black X100S coming tomorrow morning (London time). Stay tuned on FR.]

Dominik Fusina says via twitter: the X-W1 appeared on his website is a fake. He created it from his “own experience with mirrorless and vintage cameras and rumors about the next Fuji.”

According to the poll published here on FR, 92% of you where right: the image is not real. So this time you made a better guess than with the leaked blue X-A1 here, which was real but almost everybody said it’s a fake. You’re getting better ;).

Anyway, I don’t think that Dominik is too far-off from what we can expect the real X-W1 (or X-Whatever it’s called) to be. Therefore, would you like a camera with a similar look as the X-W1 created by Fusina? What would you change and what would you keep from his design?

Stay tuned on FR that day, also via facebook, google+ and twitter. I’ll do LIVE BLOGGING on that day!

X-W1 image leaked: is this the new weather sealed X?

 photo asd_zpsfc206496.jpg

Is this the long rumored weather sealed X? It appeared at the facebook page of Art Photographer Dominik Fusina.

True or fake? I have my doubts. Why should this camera have the viewfinder selector (as on the X-PRO1/X100S) if it’s EVF only? And why does the exp.comp dial go only from -2 to +2, when the X-E2 goes from -3 to +3? And what’s on the left? Vade retro, mode dial!… but hey, you are the judge!

But, if it’s fake, it’s really well done (I mean the one with the X-W1 on the park bench).

Analize the image, drop your thoughts in the comments and vote the poll.

black X100S retail price in UK could be of £1000… about the same as the silver version!

black (and more expensive) “limited edition” of the X100

It was one of the questions asked by FR-readers in the comments: will the black X100S cost more than the silver one?

Well, if FR-source drphotorumor is right also this time, the retail price of the black X100S in the UK will be of £1,000. I remind you that when the silver X100S was launched 1 year ago, it cost £1,099 (now dropped to £949 for example at wexphotographic here).

If correct, then this means that Fuji will offer the black version at about the same price as the silver version. The black “limited” edition box of the X100 instead is far more expensive than the silver version.

Just a few more days and we will know more about it. I remind you, X-day is January 6th, when the 56mm f/1.2 (and probably also the black X100S) will be unveiled right before the start of the CES (January 7).

stay tuned on Fujirumors,
