Holy sweet camera! The Fujifilm should be, if it isn’t already, on your holiday shopping short list. Just before the weekend the camera maker said that it will ship sometime in early November and cost you $599.99. A tad pricey if you’re in the market for a simple point and shot, but the X10 is much more than that.
This camera has a new larger 2/3″ 12 megapixel EXR CMOS sensor and a bright high-definition F2.0 wide-angle to F2.8 telephoto 4x manual zoom lens. A 2.8-inch LCD sits on it’s back and the camera itself is crafted from die-cast magnesium alloy, making it strong enough to survive even the most heavy handed of users. It can of course capture full HD video and produce professional like shots. And, if you were wondering, there is a pop up flash.
In early September we wrote a semi lengthy piece detailing the X10′s abilities so head there for the full scoop.
