• Look, A Fujifilm X100 Next To A Leica M3

    While it’s not the carbon copy some seem to think it is, the X100 does take a lot of design cues from Leica and this generation of cameras in general. I’m dying to get my hands on one of these, though that $1200 price tag is a little intimidating. Lots more comparison pics and other X100 porn at Nokton’s Flickr page.

    Bendable integrated circuits aren’t new, but now a total of 27 Japanese companies and institutions are working on bendable ICs that can be commercialized and mass-produced as early as 2015. According to Japanese business daily The Nikkei, the organizations involved include Japan’s National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST), Sony, Fujifilm, Panasonic… Read More

  • Fujifilm Finally Makes The X100 Officially Official

    Although I would have said that a camera is “official” when you announce it and make a whole microsite about it, Fujifilm is slightly less cavalier about their camera lineup, and only today are making the gorgeous and powerful X100 truly real. We’ve talked about it before, even played with it at CES, but I’ll just put the final specs and info here for good measure. The… Read More

  • First Previews Of Fujifilm X100 Start Popping Up

    My love for the X100 is no secret. I was excited when it was announced, ecstatic to get my hands on it, and even named it my personal best of show at CES. So I’m a little jealous (but I understand, Fujifilm, I understand) that a few photo outlets on the net are getting their units for hands-on previews. DP Review’s is practical and thorough, as usual, and Norwegian site Akam.no… Read More

  • Fujifilm's Anti-Counterfeiting Watermarks Are Just Cool-Looking

    If you’re a big manufacturer of media and components like Fujifilm or Sandisk, you need to make sure that products on the market are actually from your factories and not some knockoff that just copied your packaging. Counterfeits can be remarkably like the real thing (as any counterfeiter can tell you), and it’s a constant race between the thief and the thieved to be able to show… Read More

  • Quick Hands-On: Fujifilm's Gorgeous X100

    Oh man, I was so pumped to get my hands on this thing. This is the beautiful retro-styled, APS-C sensored, dial-covered compact camera we heard about a few months back, and immediately fell in love with. It’s got a “hybrid viewfinder” that either works as a regular see-through thing with overlay, or you can flip a switch and it becomes an EVF. Plus, just look at that sucker. Read More

  • Fujifilm US Giving Away W3 3D Camera On Twitter

    Ever wanted to win one of those Fujifilm 3D cameras, the W3 3D? You know where this is going: Fujifilm has a little Twitter contest going on right now (it runs through the end of the month), and if you win it, bam! You’ll be taking 3D photos in no time. Read More

  • Fujifilm FinePix X100 Combines Versatile Digital Power With Insanely Good Looks

    Wow, Fujifilm. Just… wow. This is an amazing piece of work. The FinePix X100 is… not really comparable to anything on the market. It’s got the sensor of a DSLR (12-megapixel APS-C) but is set up like an old-school rangefinder, with an actual optical viewfinder. Or rather, a hybrid viewfinder, since they can overlay information on it like an EVF… but it’s still a… Read More

  • New Fujifilm W3 3D Point And Shoot Does 3D At 720p

    3D cameras haven’t really caught on yet for a number of reasons, but nobody told Fujifilm; they’re going right ahead with a new version of the W1, their 3D point-and-shoot from last year. The new one improves photo processing (reduces 3D artifacts like doubling), increases the size of the LCD to 3.5″/800×480 (it’s autostereoscopic, so you can see 3D without… Read More

  • Fujifilm Instax mini50S Camera Goes After Polaroid Market Niche

    Fujifilm has released an alternative to the beloved Polaroid camera, and calls it the Instax mini50S. The good news is, the Instax film is cheaper than the reissued Polaroid, running about $16 for 20 shots. The bad news is, it’s only available in Japan (currently) and will cost you about $220 to import. Before you shell out for the latest from Fujifilm, don’t forget about the… Read More

  • Fujifilm now lets you view 3D pics taken with its REAL 3D W1 on 3D TVs

    Do you remember the FinePix REAL 3D W1, the “world’s first” digital camera that lets users shoot photos (and movies) in 3D? Announced by Fujifilm back in September 2008, the device, which you can see pictured below, became official one year later (Fujifilm in the US, for example, sells it online for $600). For those lucky owners of said camera who also plan on getting a 3D… Read More

  • Review: Fujifilm XP10 rugged digital camera

    Short version: The price is right, and it is rugged, but form factor problems may sink this camera’s chances. Read More

  • Instant film isn't dead – it's just weird and expensive

    The Polaroid saga is a long and strange one. And the last couple years have been especially strange. Bankrupt, reanimated, relaunched, sold out, bought up… I wouldn’t be surprised if Polaroid showed up on Dancing With The Stars. They keep saying they’re coming back, but I’ll believe it when I see it. In the mean time, your options for instant film are depressingly… Read More

  • Fujifilm unleashes a torrent of digital cameras

    Whoa. You go to bed in a world without many Fujifilm cameras and wake up in a world blessed with a dozen new ones! We begin with the interesting ones – basically the FinePix XP10 rugged model, shown above, and the hubristic HS10, a 30X optical zoom wannabe D-SLR camera that shoots in HD. Otherwise you’re looking at a long, dark spring ahead. As for the rest of these meh-too… Read More

  • A gaggle of FujiFilm FinePix cameras leak

    Hmmm, unannounced digital cameras. Got to love the Internet. Anyway, LetsGoDigital dug up details about four tasty FujiFilm FinePix cameras. These aren’t just Wal-Mart specials, either. Oh no, take notice, these boys are nice, especially the S2500HD with an 18x optical zoom and 720p recording mode. Hit the jump for pics and details. Read More

  • Fujifilm and IBM develop magnetic tape that stores 35TB

    Fujifilm and IBM today announced they jointly developed a technology that makes it possible to store 35TB of data on a single magnetic tape. The companies say the tape can store the “text of 35 million books, which would require 248 miles (399 km) of bookshelves”. 35TB is about 44 times as much as previously possible. Read More

  • The Fujifilm FinePix Real 3D W1 becomes official, includes 3D movie mode

    Time published a bunch of info about Fujifilm’s upcoming 3D consumer camera system early last week. The mag talked about how how the FinePix Real 3D W1 the next best thing, which I claimed was doubtful considering its price, but one small detail was left out: this camera can also record 3D movies. That’s sweet. Update: More pics of the camera and system after the jump. Read More

  • Fujifilms's 3D camera is expensive, will probably not catch on

    We like innovative products as much as the next nerd, but we’re thinking that Fuji might be beyond its time with this 3D camera. It sounds sweet. The Fujifilm camera can produce 3D pics by using two lens that are spaced out a lot like human eyes. It then uses fancy software to combine the two images into one 3D picture that can then be viewed on either a special digital photo frame or on… Read More

  • Fujifilm's Z300 offers touchscreen shooting

    Fujifilm yesterday announced [JP] the FinePix Z300 for the Japanese market, a digital camera that lets users snap pictures by touching the target object on the LCD screen on its backside. The Z300 can focus the shot by itself so that even beginners can make decent photos. Read More
