The Fujifilm X100 uses the latest technology used in professional and modern cameras put inside the body of a classic 35mm camera. There is even an LCD viewfinder.
The Fujifilm X100 hybrid design is stunning and will definitely grasp the attention of many photographers.
Implications - Fujifilm is jumping head-first into the high-end camera market. The Fujifilm x100 is a great product and it will be interesting to see how the company innovates and builds from this initial design. I really like this camera and hope to get one as soon as possible.
