Main Rivals

Listed below are some of the rivals of the Fujifilm FinePix X100.

Leica M8.2

Leica M8.2 Review thumbnail

Based on the famous analogue M-series cameras, the Leica M8.2 is 10 megapixel digital rangefinder camera aimed firmly at the professional user. The £3900 / $5999 body-only M8.2 is a serious investment, and with Leica announcing its successor this week, the 18 megapixel full-frame M9, you could argue that its days are numbered. We find out if the M8.2 is still worth a look...

Leica X1

Leica X1 Review thumbnail

The Leica X1 is a premium camera with a premium price-tag - £1395 / $1995 is a lot to ask for a compact camera, albeit one with a large APS-C sensor, fast f/2.8, 36mm lens and superlative handling. Can the Leica X1 possibly justify its credit-crunching cost of admission? Read our in-depth Leica X1 review to find out...

Olympus E-PL2

The brand new Olympus E-PL2 is the second PEN camera aimed directly at the compact owner looking to upgrade to a more capable, but still portable and relatively inexpensive, camera. Key improvements over the year-old E-PL1 model include a larger LCD screen, faster auto-focusing, and a new kit lens. Read our expert Olympus E-PL2 review to find out if it hits the mark.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 Review thumbnail

The hot-off-the-press Lumix DMC-GF2 takes Panasonic's range of Compact System Cameras into uncharted territory. The GF2 is clearly reaching out to frustrated compact camera users by combining a mature touch-screen interface with a simplified control layout, tiny body and DSLR-like image quality and features. Does the GF2 achieve the perfect balance between the portability of a compact and the professionalism of a DSLR? Read the World's First Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 Review to find out...

Sigma DP1s

Sigma DP1s Review thumbnail

The Sigma DP1s is the newest member of Sigma's big-sensor, small camera family, offering a 14 megapixel APS-C imager more typically found in DSLR cameras. Offering a 28mm fixed focal lens, manual shooting modes and RAW format support, providing DSLR image quality in a compact camera is clearly the DP1s' main aim. Successor to the DP1 model, the Sigma DP1s offers a few key enhancements to the original design. Read our expert Sigma DP1s review to find out if this is the pocket camera that every keen photographer has been waiting for.

Sigma DP2

Sigma DP2 Review thumbnail

The Sigma DP2 is a compact camera with a difference - at its heart is a large DSLR sensor that delivers better image quality than virtually all other compacts. The successor to the DP1 model has a new 41mm lens, faster operation and a more intuitive user interface, whilst retaining the same 14 megapixel sensor, 2.5 inch LCD screen and RAW file support. We find out if the Sigma DP2 is the right compact camera for you in our latest in-depth review...

Samsung NX100

Samsung NX100 Review thumbnail

The new NX100 is Samsung's answer to the Panasonic GF, Olympus PEN and Sony NEX - a mirrorless, compact system camera with interchangeable lenses and the attraction of a large APS-C sensor. As well as being smaller and lighter than the more DSLR-like NX10 model, the NX100 offers an innovative i-Function button which allows you to change the camera's key settings simply by pressing a button and turning the focus ring of the lens. With a retail price of around £449.99 / $599.99 with the new 20-50mm kit lens, the Samsung NX100 also offers fantastic value for money.

Sony NEX-5

Sony NEX-5 Review thumbnail

Sony have joined the likes of Panasonic, Olympus and Samsung in the mirrorless system camera market with the release of the NEX-5 and NEX-3. With a 14 megapixel APS HD CMOS sensor, full 1080i HD movies, high-res 3 inch tilting screen, optional external flash and two available lenses on launch, the NEX-5 certainly seems well-equipped to take on the already established competition. Find out if it has what it takes in our in-depth Sony NEX-5 review, complete with sample JPEGs, RAW files, movies and even 3D panoramas.
