Fujifilm has pulled the covers back and shown off a cool looking camera with a retro style to it that reminds me a lot of a Leica camera. The new Fujifilm camera is called the X100 and Fujifilm says that the camera was created by photographers for photographers.

The camera uses an APS CMOS sensor and has the world's first hybrid viewfinder on board. The X100 has a 12.3MP resolution and it can shoot HD movies. The ISO range for the camera is 200 to 6400 and it can be extended to 100 and 12800 as well. The camera also uses an EXR Processor to get the highest resolution, sensitivity, and dynamic range.

The lens is a Fujinon 23mm F2 unit and it uses aspherical glass molded lens. The hybrid viewfinder combines a "bright frame" optical viewfinder found in range finder style cameras with a LCD allowing the camera to show the shooting frame and electronic shooting data with 0.5x magnification. The X100 shoots RAW mode and has 49-point autofocus. The HD movies are recorded in 720p resolution, and it has a motion panorama function. It comes with a luxury case and has automatic flash. It will ship in March for $1,199.95.
