Want to see exactly what the new Fujifilm X100S camera looks like in the flesh?

Check out our extensive hands-on gallery of 32 photos of the Fujifilm X100S, including a side-by-side comparison with its predecessor, the X100, and its new stable-mate, the X20.

The Fujifilm X100S is a premium compact camera with a newly-developed 16.3 megapixel APS-C X-Trans CMOS II sensor, EXR Processor II and faster auto-focusing than the original X100.

This claim was certainly borne out in our direct comparison of the two cameras, with the X100s focusing almost instantaneously despite running very early firmware. The X100 with the most recent firmware update lagged noticeably behind, so the X100S certainly promises to fix one of the few major criticisms of the original model.

Other interesting features such as focus peaking and the clever “Digital Split Image”, which displays dual images on the left and right to be lined up for manual focusing, weren’t working on the pre-production model that we tried, but things certainly look promising for the new Fujifilm X100S.

I have had the X100 for a number of months, I think it is already a stunning camera. Some quirks, yes, but, no problem at all. The results are fantastic. The difference between DR400 (ISO 800) and base ISO (200) is negligible. The dynamic range at DR400 is unparalleled meaning essentially you can shoot without worrying about blown highlights.

The X100S an upgrade of already a superb photographic tool. In fact, the biggest problem with the camera will be you, the user! I know its the biggest problem with my X100.
