Welcome to another Breakdown. Lets be honest when was the last time you seriously considered buying a Fuji point shoot? If youre an avid GP reader then were willing to bet a roll of
Kodachrome Velvia its probably not the first compact to cross your mind. Nevertheless this month Fuji will completely change your perception when the hotly anticipated (and do we mean hotly) Finepix X100 lands. Oozing with 60s era purpose-built design the X100 is rarely mentioned without the word Leica in tow a good thing considering this gem undercuts its Leica equivalent the X1 by nearly 800 bones. Fuji has melded handsome rangefinder looks (granted no rangefinder focus) and modern technology into a camera that does one thing not many cameras can claim: excite and motivate a shooter. Look for this one to end up in a lot of everyday carries. Of course quiet/stealthy/instant operation 35mm f2.0 prime lens gargantuan APS-C sensor in-camera RAW processing 1/4000s shutter speed internal 3-stop ND filter and motion-panorama doesnt hurt either.
