The Fuji X100s is an updated version of Fuji’s highly popular X100 premium fixed lens compact camera.  With the X100s, Fuji have done a masterful job in addressing the issues that most shooters had with the previous version.  It has an all new Hybrid viewfinder, a blazing fast autofocus system and it’s loaded up with Fuji’s new X-Trans II sensor and EXR II processing technology which produces breathtakingly beautiful images.  But just how will Fuji’s new premium compact stand up against the big daddy (speaking figuratively of course, as the RX1 is actually quite small) of all compacts, the full [More]

Steve Huff of SteveHuffPhoto.com compares the Sony RX1 to the Fuji X-E1 in Aufotfocus Speed, Image Quality and High ISO (Low Light) Performance, etc. This really is an apples to oranges comparison since one camera is a fixed lens compact and the other is a compact system (interchangeable lens) camera that costs less than half the price.   Nonetheless, these are two of the best cameras to be released in 2012 and it’s a fun comparison to say the least (just look at the comments, because the trolls are out in full force). For anyone who has read Steve’s posts [More]

When the Sony RX1 was unveiled a few months ago at Photokina, we found the camera to be quite an enigma. After all, Sony wouldn’t even let photographers on the scene handle the camera. They just displayed it in a glass cube. Sony call it the World’s First Full Frame Compact Camera as it sports the same 35mm CMOS sensor as the new Sony A99 DSLT Camera, and it’s packed into a tiny tiny frame, but with a hefty hefty price tag. There’s no doubt that this is a top quality camera, and that 35mm Sony Sensor is absolutely killer! [More]
