The Fuji FinePix X100S is the successor to the well-received Fuji X100 (released in June 2011), inheriting its classic retro design and bright, fixed focal length 23mm f/2 lens, yet incorporating some important enhancements that will grab your attention. The X100S is equipped with a newly developed 16.3 megapixel APS-CX-Trans CMOS II sensor and an EXR processor II, which enables fast capture of 16MP stills at 6fps and full HD 1920x1080p video shooting at 60fps. The X100S offers a lightning fast AF speed of 0.8 seconds plus a variety of manual focus assist modes. The Hybrid Viewfinder offers expanded freedom in composition enabling you to shoot in a wide range of demanding shooting conditions. The Hybrid Viewfinder offers you the brightness and clarity of an optical viewfinder with the benefit of digital viewfinder information display and allows you to instantly switch between an Optical Viewfinder (OVF) and an Electronic Viewfinder (EVF).

Reignite the joy of photography
Explore new angles of photography. Experience photography with a viewfinder that incorporates the cutting edge of Fujifilm technology! Through the viewfinder, your eye finds the freedom to compose your shot in a wide field of view and the luxury of a bright, clear view of the scene. Here is the pleasure of focusing on your subject, and the endless fascination of exploring the scene from every angle.
Sensor performance comparable to full-frame output
Featuring FUJIFILM’s newly-developed 16.3 megapixel APS-C X-Trans CMOS II sensor with a unique, highly randomised, colour filter arrangement. X-Trans CMOS II incorporates an original colour filter array with a highly random pattern, eliminating the need for an optical low-pass filter (OLPF). These filters are typically used in conventional systems to inhibit moiré, but they also reduce resolution.
The X-Trans CMOS II's pixel array lets the sensor capture unfiltered light from the lens, achieving an unprecedented level of resolution. In addition, utilising the enhanced performance of the EXR Processor II, Lens Modulation Optimiser (LMO) factors are calculated to compensate for aberrations and diffraction blur that occur when light passes through the lens and then are applied to produce images with amazing sharpness.
Bright Fujinon 23mm f/2 fixed focal length lens
Stunning image quality without compromise, packed into a slim compact body... These were the highest objectives when the FUJIFILM X100S was being developed! And they have been achieved through the incorporation of a newly developed, non-interchangeable, non-collapsible, fixed focal length lens. While featuring the generous brightness of a maximum f/2 aperture, the large-diameter rear lens group is integrated into the body for an ultra-slim profile. In addition, the optimisation of the sensor for this special lens fully exploits the advantage of a fixed focal length lens for superior edge-to-edge image quality.
Full HD 1920x1080 Video Shooting at 60fps
Full HD Movie (1920 x 1080) mode features 60fps for smoother capture of the action in full high definition. Shooting movies at the high bit-rate of 36Mbps results in enhanced image quality and clarity that reveals every detail from individual leaves in the trees to subtle changes in facial expression. You can also take advantage of Monochrome and the vivid colour expression of other Film Simulation modes, and exploit the brightness of the lens to shoot movies with a “bokeh” effect.
The World’s fastest Auto Focus and High-speed EXR Processing
Equipped with both the super fast phase detection AF system, and contrast AF for accurate focusing in dark scenes, Intelligent Hybrid AF instantly switches to the optimal focusing system. Applying the fastest algorithm depending on the subject and scene, Intelligent Hybrid AF can bring your subject into focus in just 0.08 sec*.
*Fujifilm research as of November 2012 based on CIPA guidelines and conducted in“High Performance” mode.
Enhanced manual focus performance with the world’s first (*5) ‘Digital Split Image’ display
Making use of the built-in phase detection pixels for AF action, the X100S is the world’s first (*5) camera to offer a “Digital Split Image” feature, which overlays two images and allows you to line them up. This enables accurate focusing especially when working with an open aperture or macro shooting.

In addition, the X100S offers a handy Focus Peak Highlight function, which emphasises the outline of the subject focus plane. It provides the photographer with a guide, even in situations where it is difficult to calculate focusing accuracy, allowing users to enjoy manual focusing comfortably, however challenging the conditions.
High-speed continuous shooting
Maximum high-speed continuous shooting speed of 6fps (max. 29 frames). Shoot at a maximum burst speed of 6 fps at full 16 megapixel resolution to capture a series of exposures of moving subjects and other challenging photographic scenes.
Perfected fusion of Optical and Electronic Viewfinder
There's an indescribable pleasure that peering through a viewfinder provides. Now Fujifilm have taken this further with the launch of the newly developed Hybrid Viewfinder. Whether you're framing your shot through the Optical Viewfinder (OVF), or Electronic Viewfinder (EVF), your eye will not only see the subject and scene, but also a range of shooting data projected by an integrated high-definition LCD panel. It's the perfect marriage of intuitive analogue operation and state-of-the-art digital functionality to deliver the ultimate picture taking experience.
Stylish, yet functional design
The design of the X100S resembles the cameras of the film age, and there is wisdom that has been passed down behind it. This gives the X100S commonality that transcends the ages. The X100S is designed to enable you to “quickly” capture that moment you wish to document.
Q (Quick menu) button - easy access to all shooting settings
Press the Q (Quick menu) button and skip directly to a choice of ISO sensitivity, Film Simulation and other frequently used shooting menus. Then just use the selector button and the main or sub command dial to choose a menu and make settings even while shooting.
When you hold the camera for a shot, your left hand naturally controls the aperture ring and your right comfortably finds the shutter speed dial. Everything is ideally positioned so you can concentrate on composing your shot. You are in complete control with a choice of aperture priority AE, shutter speed priority AE, program AE and manual exposure control.
“T” (Time) & “B” (Bulb) Long Exposure Modes
