It looks like a classic rangefinder, yet it features Fujifilm’s latest EXR technology and, controversially, a fixed-focus, non-interchangeable lens. So has the FinePix X100 really been worth the wait? We find out
Although we don’t currently have the hard data on the dynamic range values for the X100, its performance appears to be on a par with many of the entry-level DSLRs we have tested, suggesting a dynamic range of around 11EV. The EXR expansion modes allow this to be optimised. This performance certainly shows the benefit of using such a large sensor and is far better than most compact cameras could produce.
