Salt-cellars at the ready, humans, because it's camera rumor time. Buoyed by the runaway success of the X100, Fujifilm is reportedly readying both entry-level and interchangeable lens versions. According to Canadian photographer Bob Todrick, a Fuji rep confirmed to him that the X200 - a point-and-shoot version of the X100 - is due for release this fall, while an X300 pro-version will arrive in 2012.
Fujifilm has pulled the covers off a new point and shoot digital camera that is very good looking and comes in several colors. The camera is called the FinePix Z900 EXR and the little camera replaces the Z800 EXR that Fujifilm has been offering for a while now. The Z900 EXR packs in a bunch of cool features that should make for an interesting camera.
Fujifilm's deliciously retro-styled X100 digital camera is one of the specific products called out as delayed by the current Japanese crisis, and that's having a significant impact on what was already a high-demand model. eBay auctions for the X100 are reaching in excess of $2,200 with time still to run, more than twice the Fuji's list price.
We've already written about the terrifying situation in Japan this past week, and how SlashGear readers can help the ongoing aid effort. Now, Japanese manufacturers are beginning to add up the impact the earthquake and tsunami have had on tech production, affected both by physical damage to facilities as well as ongoing power shortages and transportation break-down.

You can tell from the design that there's something different about Fujifilm's FinePix XP30 and XP20 digital cameras, and happily it's not just an aesthetic flourish. The new range is waterproof to up to five meters, resilient to drops of up to 1.5m, and freezeproof to -10 degrees centigrade. It's also dust and sandproof, and if you opt for the XP30 then you get a GPS chip to geotag your photos.

Welcome back after an extended holiday weekend! Many of you've got your new Android smartphones and giant televisions and weirdo oddities under your belt (or maybe you had even more fun by buying those things as presents) and you've come back, hungry for some tech news! Well you're in luck, especially if you DIDN'T pick up your device of choice yet, especially if you live in Korea (where you'll find the LG LU3000, faster than Galaxy S, - that is of course if you dismiss the fact that you might be going to war soon,) in Japan (where Sharp is very soon releasing their fabulous Galapagos tablets,) or the USA (where you can get a FREE G2.) Of course, if you're in Taiwan this week, you'll probably flip out over a ASUS Eee Note EA-800, and if you're in the USA... well... how about a pulse rifle? Or I bet you're on the lookout for a SlashGear Cyber Monday Round Up?! All this and MORE on SlashGear Morning Wrap-up!
