Fujifilm’s XF1 digicam is a $500 pointandshoot with manual controls and a faux leather exterior

Fujifilm has been making some really handsome, retro-styled shooters lately, and the latest is the XF1. It’s a compact camera that’s 4.2 inches wide, 2.4 inches across and a scant 1.2 inches deep, and comes covered in either black, red or tan faux leather. There’s a 2/3 inch 12-megapixel sensor inside with a retractable, manual zoom, 25-100mm f/1.8 – f/4.9 lens that’s optically stabilized. You turn the thing on by twisting and pulling out the lens (like its elder brother, the X10), and you can shoot 1080p 30fps video using the 3-inch 460,000 dot LCD on the back. The XF1’s ISO range is 100 – 12,800 and it’s got a pop-up flash for shooting in poorly lit locales. Additionally, the camera has a jog dial with a full manual setting, six buttons dedicated to primary functions and a separate, programmable key to tailor the UX to your liking. The XF1 goes on sale for $500 next month, though should you be unable to wait that long, head on over to Cologne, Germany and you can see one in person at Photokina later this week.
