Fuji's newest flagship

Coming out strong for Fuji in the prosumer tier is the FinePix S100FS. It’s pretty much the best of both worlds, in terms of point-and-shoot and DSLR hybrids go. I’m personally not a big fan of these hybrid types, but this one certainly has me interested. It packs an 11-megapixel CCD sensor with 14.3x manual zoom, RP III processor, 2.5-inch tiltable LCD and does some funky sensitivity thing when shooting at 6-megapixels (6400) or 3-megapixels (10,000). It’s nice that you can shoot both RAW and JPEG and capture VGA video at 30fps. When set to 3-megapixels, the S100FS can manage a 50-shot burst at 7fps.

Standard features include DIS, Face Detection 2.0, Automatic Red Eye Removal and wide dynamic range of 100-400 percent. This one also supports xD and SD/SDHC memory cards. It certainly sounds like a killer camera, but I’m not sure I’d fork over $800 for a non-DSLR, DSLR-type. We should see it in stores next month.
