Fujifilm today announced the U.S. debut of its FinePix X100 premium digital camera which will begin shipping in March. According to Fujifilm the camera was developed to appeal to professional and advanced amateur photographers with highest quality images through a high-performance, beautifully crafted compact digital camera. FinePix X100 combines modern technology with a traditional camera design to deliver the ultimate in image quality.

The camera features an APS-C CMOS sensor (12.3 megapixel), newly developed EXR Processor, a FUJINON 23mm Single Focal Length Fixed F2 lens, a 2.8" LCD 460K, and the world's first Hybrid Viewfinder. By combining fixed focal length lens with high-sensitivity sensor, Fujifilm was able to achieve 10 times the sensitivity of a conventional compact camera. In standard form, the planned ISO range is from 200 to 6400, but this can be expanded to include 100 and 12800.
