    Fujifilm FinePix X 100S is the successor of one of the most popular cameras from Fuji FinePix X 100. It comes with the capability of 16.3 million pixels. The camera has APS-C X-Trans CMOS II sensor. The processor for this camera is EXR Processor 2. There is a hybrid viewfinder provided in X100S. The camera can boast of features like higher resolutions, lower noise and higher shooting speeds. It has the powerful Fujinon 23mm F2 lens.

    The hybrid viewfinder of the camera is a combination of both an optical and an electronic viewfinder. When you focus the camera manually, you can see a split image of the object. There will be a dual image to be seen on the left and right of manual focusing. Of course, this new feature in FinePix X100S is just a carry forward of the feature, which used to be there in the old conventional cameras. The only difference is that now this feature is provided in the digital camera. There is an intelligent hybrid Autofocus with AF speed of 0.08 sec. This is said to be one of the fastest in the world in the camera of this category. The camera takes a start-up time of 0.5 sec. There is shutter time lag of 0.01 sec. Another feature of this camera is burst shooting mode. You can shoot at the rate of up to 6 frames per second at full resolution. Of course, there is a limit up to 31 frames. The shooting interval time in this camera is 0.5 seconds.

    Fujifilm FinePix X 100S provides a very high contrast ratio. It has a wide viewing angle. The display size is 2.8 inches with Premium Clear LCD (460K dots) display. You are provided with a super intelligent flash in this camera. This camera also provides a Focus peak highlight function. There is provision of full HD video recording @60fps or 30fps.

    The price of Fujifilm FinePix X 100S is Rs.74,999. Since the camera is released recently, it has not yet been listed at online sellers.

    You wanted know why you should buy this camera. Just remember the suffix 'S' added to the predecessor of this camera. If I say that 'S' stands for simplicity of its functions, specifications of the camera, shutter speed, stunning pictures and the satisfaction it offers to its buyers, then you can take it my justification for buying this camera.

    The pros for the camera are many as stated above. But there are some cons too. The camera lacks stabilization. It could have designed better than its predecessor. There is no perfect precision in handing digital split image mode. Video could have been more practical. Last but not the least, the battery life is quite low. Its endurance is only up to 250 shots.
