When the Fuji X100s was unveiled at CES 2013 last month, photographers were raving about it’s vastly improved autofocus speed as well as the superb image quality generated by Fuji’s all new X-Trans II CMOS Sensor and EXR II Processor. Now it seems there’s one more thing to be excited about. This baby is quiet!
In Space, No One Can Hear You Take Pictures…
The Phoblographer posted an article about their friend Brandon Remler, who now has the Fuji X100s in his hands. Brandon created a short video (above) that shows just how quiet the shutter sound of the X100s when compared it to it’s predecessor, the X100, as well as traditional film mirror SLR cameras, pellicle mirror SLR cameras, and the X-Pro 1/ XE-1.
There no doubt that Fuji make some great stuff. They have been for years and years, and the new X100s, which on the surface looks like only a modest upgrade to it’s predecessor, boasts some impressive technology underneath while fixing all the minor glitches on the previous model. In short, if you love the X100, then you’ll love the X100s even more.
At $1,299.95, it’s comes in as one of the pricier fixed lens compacts, but with the new X-Trans II CMOS Sensor and EXR II Processor, it offers excellent quality that puts it in a league with DSLRs that cost 2 to 3 times as much. If you’re in the market for a premium quality compact, then the Fuji X100s should definitely be on your short list, and the quiet shutter sound is just the icing on the cake.
