    I ran across this article in Fuji Rumours, it doesnt say anything regarding specs or price, but I reckon its one good looking camera.
  2. Now that is one sexy little compact!!!!

    Yep, it's looking really good. Looks like a 2/3" sensor from the focal range of the lens, it's going to be interesting to see it compared with the RX100.

    Guess we know where all the excess X10 sensor are going, cough cough! :D

    It's a great looking little camera, and the aperture range looks amazing, as does the 25mm eq. wide angle, but I wonder how well it will do against the RX-100 or even other small sensor zoom compacts. After all, the Sony has a bucketload of megapixels that come out really well in raw, whereas Fuji's unique sensor designs often fall short in third party raw programs. And no one really LIKES Silkypix if they admit it.

    If I didn't already have a boatload of cameras, though...

    It's a looker, that's for sure. I suspect that Fuji wants to get their money's worth out of that sensor now that they've gone through all the expense of fixing it. To be fair, it's a pretty good sensor, especially with the orb thingy fixed. I wonder if this is the sequel to the X-10? It looks far more automatic to be sure, but it has enough manual controls to be functional.

    you should be able to figure it out...
    Do we know its the same sensor as the X10? It looks quite a bit smaller, but I guess if Sony can get a 1" sensor in the RX100...

    No info on the sensor, but people are inferring the sensor size based on the focal length and presumed crop factor. It's probably the same.....economies of scale and all that.

    If it's the X10 sensor, the focal length range is something like 25-101mm (FF equiv.) so that's a pretty safe guess I think.
