Serious photographers will love the Fujifilm X100S, a serious camera with a distinctly retro design. The X100S uses a 23mm (35mm equivalent) fixed (i.e., non-zooming) lens, but it's a high-quality optic if you don't mind zooming with your feet. With a maximum F/2 aperture, the lens is a low-light killer, producing beautiful blurred backgrounds to make your subject stand out. That's why the X100S is perfect for portrait photography. The camera features a new APS-C size, 16-MP X-Trans CMOS II sensor that's the same size as the one you'd find in some digital SLRs and with no optical low-pass filter to optimize resolution and capture more detail.
The Fujifilm also packs a new hybrid viewfinder, which lets you switch between a clear optical viewfinder and a digital information-laded electronic viewfinder, just by flicking a lever. On the back, the camera has a 2.8-inch LCD to help you adjust the new Focus Peak Highlight function for pinpoint sharp focus. While it can't fit in your pocket, the X100S is still highly portable, and the throwback style gives this camera a classic look.
