Fujifilm today announced all new premium compact FUJIFILM X10 digital camera, featuring a new larger 2/3" 12 megapixel EXR CMOS sensor and a bright, high-definition FUJINON F2.0 wide-angle to F2.8 telephoto, 4x manual zoom lens (28-112mm) with a proprietary Super EBC (Electron Beam Coating) that produces superb image quality from edge to edge.

The X10 follows in the footsteps of highly acclaimed Fujifilm X100 camera and it combines sleek looks, an easy-to-use manual barrel zoom lens and a traditional optical viewfinder with a wide 20° field of view for exceptional image composition.

"Fujifilm is dedicated to elevating the art of digital photography, and the X10 premium compact underscores that commitment by offering first-class image quality, beautiful styling and the innovative technology that exceeds consumers' expectations," said Go Miyazaki, division president, Imaging and Electronic Imaging Divisions, FUJIFILM North America Corporation. "The X10's thoughtfully laid out design, large EXR CMOS sensor, bright lens and manual zoom make it an outstanding choice when image quality simply cannot be compromised."

The intelligent EXR CMOS sensor automatically selects the optimum shooting mode from a total of 99 different variations to capture every type of scene perfectly. However, the camera also gives you complete manual control for creative photography. The X10's fast EXR processor delivers high-speed continuous shooting – up to 7 frames per second – at the full 12-megapixel resolution (L size), and 10 frames per second at the reduced resolution M size.

The X10 will be available in early November 2011. No word on price yet. Check out the promotional video of Fujifilm X10 camera below.
