More and more companies are mixing old school aesthetics with new school functionality, one of those being Fujifilm with the introduction of its FinePix X100 point-n-shoot digital camera.
Adorama has the pricey camera up for preorder at $1,200, though there's no word on when it will ship. That seems awfully high for a non-DSLR, but if you talk to Fujifilm, they'll tell you it's worth every penny.
"Inspired by the beauty and form of classic cameras from the past, the FinePix X100 combines all the latest technical digital innovations in a beautiful, traditional chassis which oozes class and prestige," Fujifilm explains.
Top-level dials made of metal offer up fine grain control over exposure when snapping 12.3MP photos. There's a programmed auto mode, aperture priority mode, shutter priority mode, and full manual mode, as well as a 2.8-inch LCD and high-speed contrast AF.
