Fujifilm has unveiled the X100 and X20 cameras in India. Here is a press release by Fujifilm India.
New Delhi, 22nd April, 2013: The most awaited X series cameras in premium compact segment come to India the X100s & X20. While the X100S is a high-speed successor to the X100 with the world’s fastest AF of 0.08 seconds, X20 inherits its high-precision lens and refined design, featuring substantially improved performance over X10.
The X100S features Fujifilm’s newly-developed 16.3 million pixels APS-C X-Trans CMOS II sensor with a unique, highly randomized, colour filter arrangement making the sensor’s performance comparable to full-frame output. With built-in Phase Detection, the X100S offers the world’s fastest AF speed of just 0.08 seconds.
The Intelligent Hybrid AF can switch to Contrast AF, dependent on the demands of subject or scene, to ensure that the camera always auto-focuses quickly and with precision. Offering users freedom when composing photos and adaptability for a range of shooting conditions, the X100S’s Hybrid Viewfinder combines both an Optical and an Electronic Viewfinder. Making use of the in-built phase detection pixels for AF action, the X100S is the world’s first*5 camera to offer a “Digital Split Image” feature, which displays dual images on the left and right to be lined up for manual focusing. This enables accurate focusing especially when working with an open aperture or macro shooting. The camera has got FUJINON 23mm F2 lens offering premium image quality in a compact body. The X100S retails at an MRP of Rs. 74,999.
On the other hand, X20 is also packed full with Fujifilm’s latest technology such as X-Trans CMOS II sensor, EXR Processor II and newly-developed Advanced Optical Viewfinder with real time shooting data for improved usability and a bright view. The X20 is available in both black and two-tone black and silver. The X20 features the newly-developed 12 million pixels 2/3-inch X-Trans CMOS II sensor. The sensor’s excellent sensitivity is coupled with the processor’s advanced signal processing capacity to reduce noise. The newly-developed X-Trans CMOS II sensor has built-in Phase Detection pixels for high-speed AF in as little as 0.06 seconds. Apart from that X20 boasts high precision F2.0-2.8 4x manual barrel zoom lens and enables you to create a beautiful soft ‘Bokeh’ effect to make your subject stand out off the background and also has Super Macro mode (1cm) for shooting perfect close shots.
