You see what Fujifilm did here, right? They've added an in-between camera to their high-end X series, right between the fun X10 and the serious X100. The X-S1 Digital Camera (Black) looks like a DSLR, but has a fixed 26x 24-624mm lens with a very fast (for this zoom range) f/2.8 maximum aperture at the wide-angle end of the zoom (it goes to f/5.6 at longer focal lengths). That's a 26x zoom lens. A true wide-angle 24mm to a truly awesome 624mm telephoto and everything in between. Plus, a super macro setting that allows you to get your shot right up to 1/2" from your subject--there's hardly a photo you can't capture with this camera.
The 2/3" EXR CMOS sensor captures both high res stills and 1080p HD video at a maximum resolution of 12MP. The X-S1 has both a large, tiltable 3" LCD monitor and a sharp 1440,000-dot electronic viewfinder (EVF). Naturally, it captures RAW as well as JPEG files. Sensitivity from ISO 100 to ISO 12800 gives you confidence that you'll always get the shot, no matter how dim the light.
The solid construction of the X-S1 include touches like metal dials on top, a textured rubber-like finish for a solid grip, and the ability to use the built-in flash for macro shots as close as 11.8". The overall structure is designed to minimize moisture and dust.
The film simulation mode allows you to mimic the look of Velvia, Provia or Astia Fuji films, or produce gorgeous black and white images with or without filtration. You can even bracket dynamic range, film simulation, exposure or ISO sensitivity for any given situation. This camera is ready to play.
