Fujifilm gets official with X20 and X100s cameras, promises worlds fastest AF
We saw some details leak out earlier this week, and Fujifilm has now gotten official with its two latest high-end compact cameras. That includes the X100s (pictured above), a successor to the X100 that boasts what Fujifilm claims is the “world’s fastest AF of 0.08 seconds” (compared to other cameras with an APS-C sensor and a non-interchangeable lens, at least). Otherwise, you can expect a FUJINON 23mm f/2 fixed prime lens, a 16.3 megapixel APS-C X-Trans CMOS II sensor that promises “performance comparable to full-frame output,” a hybrid viewfinder that combines both an optical and EVF, and a new Digital Split Image display that displays dual images on the left and right to aid manual focusing. On the slightly lower-end is the company’s X10 followup, the X20, which packs a 12 megapixel 2/3-inch X-Trans CMOS II sensor, a non-hybrid but “advanced” optical viewfinder, an f/2.0-2.8 4x manual barrel zoom lens and the ability to shoot full HD video at 60 fps — all available in your choice of all-black or two-tone black and silver (as pictured after the break). Unfortunately, there’s still no word on pricing or availability for either model — hopefully Fujifilm will have more to say about that once CES officially kicks off.
