Fujifilm has a new flagship interchangeable lens camera to show off. It's the X-T10, the latest edition the X-Series digital camera lineup and successor to the mighty X-T1. Like its predecessor, the X-T10 combines old school design aesthetics with modern photography amenities and is a bona fide photographic workhorse for anyone who needs or desires higher quality shots than what’s possible with their smartphones. The X-T10 is a smaller, less expensive version of the X-T1, though don't read that to mean cheap. Priced at $800 for the body alone ($900 with XC16-50mm kit lens... Read more...
Fujifilm has been producing retro-like rangefinder cameras for the past few years now, and if you appreciate style, you'll be hard-pressed to find a device that shines quite like the X series. At this year's CES, two new ones are being revealed: the X20 and the X100s. Starting with the latter, that one is the follow-up to the X100, and it includes the world's fastest autofocus at 0.08 seconds. There's also a FUJINON 23mm f/2 prime lens, a 16.3MP APS-C X-Trans CMOS II sensor, a hybrid viewfinder and a Digital Split Image display. It's an advanced way of seeing thing through the lens, placing dual... Read more...
For whatever reason, the camera market has truly been embracing high fashion. While many of our gadgets seem to be assembled with no real eye on beauty, Fujifilm's camera department has been going the opposite way. The company has just released the XF1 point-and-shoot camera, with a bit of retro flair and an f/1.8 lens that should make nighttime shooting a bit more enjoyable. The camera touts a 4x manual zoom, a 2/3" 12 megapixel EXR CMOS sensor, and it's available in three motifs: a dimpled synthetic black leather, a smooth synthetic tan leather and a synthetic red leather. Other specs include... Read more...
Are point-and-shoot cameras on the way out? Are DSLRs becoming less important? It might be that mirrorless cameras are impacting both of those questions, and when you look at Fujifilm's latest, you may understand why. The company's new X-E1 is a powerful shooter, packing a 16MP APS-C X-Trans CMOS sensor, a 2.36 million dot OLED viewfinger, and a body that's 30% smaller than the X-Pro1. It's also boasting that iconic retro look that consumers have come to expect from the brand, with two color options to be available: a two-tone black and silver, and a solid black. Both versions of the X-E1 will... Read more...
You know you're getting older when styles you grew up with come full circle and are cool again. It happens with clothes, haircuts, music, and yes, even electronics. Underscoring this point are leaked images of Fujifilm's upcoming X-E1, a compact camera with modern internals dressed in retro digs. Depending on how old you are, the X-E1 looks like a camera you or your parents used to own several decades ago. Despite the old look, however, it's a high-end camera with a detachable lens and a layout that's very similar to Fujifilm's X-Pro1. The X-E1 doesn't appear to be a successor to that camera, however,... Read more...
Imagine you're on a boat in the middle of the ocean and you spot a great white shark swimming nearby. Do you (A) back away from the edge and gingerly reach for your digital camera with the hopes of snapping a long-distance shot, or (B) dive right into the water to get closer look? If you answered B, Fujifilm's FinePix XP170 might be exactly the type of digital camera you've been looking for. Fujifilm announced the rugged point-n-shoot this week and said it's an appropriate device for shooting and sharing in extreme conditions, including ones where you're submerged in water. "The solid build, rubberized... Read more...
Its products defined nearly a century of photography, cinema, and home video, but the venerable Kodak company is on the verge of bankruptcy. While the company is reportedly preparing to file a Chapter 11 bankruptcy, which permits restructuring, the firm is caught in a merciless slide. Once so synonymous with film that its products coined the phrase "Kodak moment," the Rochester, NY-based corporation lost 95 percent of its value between 1999 - 2000. Revenue for 2010 was just $7.18 billion, down from 1996's $15.97 billion. It's stock, which traded at $30-35 per share back in 2006-2007 has fallen... Read more...
Cameras these days... so hard to keep up with. You've got cameraphones, point-and-shoots, mirrorless cams, DSLRs, and evidently, "bridge cameras." These are generally spoken of as "superzoom" or "megazoom" cameras, and the Fujifilm X-S1 is the latest. We're told that the XS-1 represents a new breed of bridge camera. Featuring a Fujinon 26x optical zoom lens through to the EXR sensor technology found in the X10, the X-S1 also touts a 4-624mm (35mm equivalent) lens (f/2.8), 52x zoom range, and a lens comprised of 17 glass elements, which includes four aspherical elements and two ED lenses. The X-S1... Read more...
Fujifilm's X100 isn't your average camera. In fact, it's no one's average camera. It's a high-end point-and-shoot. A compact that runs well over $1k, yet doesn't have a zoom. But the design and image quality is unparalleled, and evidently that's good enough for some. There's a major APS-C sensor in there, and tons of good looks, but the X100 was born with a few issues, just as most first-run devices are. Thankfully, most modern-day devices can also handle a firmware update, which enables manufacturers to improve upon products that are already in the hands of customers. Fujifilm has announced that...

It's a rough and tough world out there, that's for sure. And while it's possible to grab a ToughBook in order to be prepared for just about anything when it comes to lugging a notebook around, what about your camera? Turns out there are a few rugged camera options as well, with Fujifilm responsible for the latest addition. The company's new FinePix XP30 is a true toughie, with a bubbly body that's waterproof, dustproof and drop-proof (to an extent). There's also the XP20, which is basically the same camera except for a GPS dongle. That's right, GPS! The XP30 stands out above the XP20 by having... Read more...
Mirrorless cameras are all the rage these days. Olympus and Panasonic have their Micro Four Thirds technology, Sony has their interchangeable lens family, and now Fujifilm has the FinePix X100. Now, we're just waiting for Canon and Nikon to join the fun, and full-fledged DSLRs will finally have their work cut out for them. These compact APS-C cameras offer many of the luxuries on a DSLR (full manual mode, fast shooting, great low-light performance, etc.), but at a fraction of the size and cost. They're more limited when it comes to lenses and accessories, but for many, they offer plenty of performance.... Read more...
Most of you already see the world in 3D, so why not come out with a camera that takes 3D photos and movies? One reason would be that you already tried that and, well, things didn't turn out so hot. But rather than tuck its tail between its legs and give up, FujiFlim has stormed back to the market with its FinePix RealPix Real 3D W3, the followup act to the ill-regarded W1. This time around FujiFilm bumped up the LCD screen real estate to 2.5 inches, added 720p video recording, and HDMI 1.4 for viewing those pics and videos straight away on your swank HDTV. "Last year, Fujifilm introduced the first... Read more...
In today's computing world, there are just a few things that come to mind when you mention "storage." Flash drives, hard drives, solid state drives and maybe even cloud storage. But that's about the extent of it. Hardly anyone thinks about or recognizes magnetic tape storage any more, but it's obviously still around and kicking thanks to innovations by IBM and FUJIFILM. Both of those companies have come together to produce one of the largest tape drives to date, which is designed to archive important information in scenarios where only massive, massive drives would work. In fact, the new development... Read more...
