Fujifilm has launched an online teaser campaign for a new X-mount compact system camera (CSC), which bears a striking resemblance to the classically styled manual SLRs of yore. With a centrally positioned viewfinder hump, shutter speed, ISO and exposure compensation dials; the new Fujifilm X-mount camera certainly looks like an attractive and intriguing addition to the company's critically acclaimed line-up of interchangeable-lens cameras. As indicated by the image above, the camera will be announced on 28th January.

And it will still be a digital camera with a cheat screen on the back. These things can never live up to using a real 35mm camera. I have just bought a new unused stock Contax Aria; its wonderful. If you want 'retro', buy the real thing for a fraction of the price.

Simon, you should go with this one instead, it's an earlier model that'll fit your conservatism much better:

@Simon:

There be trade-offs. Your Contax example can't realistically shoot at ISO 3200, and can't shoot 300 separate exposures on one roll of film.

Then the film costs money to purchase, and then develop, even if you do it yourself.

The new Fuji X Mount sure looks good to me!

I'm just waiting for Ricoh-Pentax to come up with one of this, hopefully with k-mount.

Simon, I understand your nostalgia for the good old days, but 35mm film will become mainstream when women play tennis in ankle length skirts and the America's cup is raced in Stately wooden yachts with polished brass fittings and stained glass windows

JCamacho,
I'm wondering why Pentax is suddenly being excluded. For example, many of the new Sigma lenses, including the group that you can have the mount changed, after the purchase, are for Nikon, Canon Sony, and of course Sigma, but no Pentax! Being absorbed by Ricoh was to revive Pentax, not eliminate it.
