New FX100 camera
show user profile  Davious
This has a great retro look to it, I would be interested in what you pro photographers think

Short of a lieca m9, this is the camera I have been waiting for, for a very long time. but I only want it, I don't need it and I dont have the money for it :S

Everything about this camera is so incredibly awesome, and if you have a look at a video that shows the viewfinder you'll understand what they mean, it looks very cool :)

It could make a great strobists camera, with a built in 3 stop ND filter and a leaf shutter for high speed flash sync, it should be very useful

If I had a reason to buy this camera other than it would make me insanely happy, I would buy it in an instant, but I wouldn't use it for work as I have the sony a850

I was set out to flush it down the toilet because compacts can only let you down (imho).
But from the looks of it this thing is different...

First of all it looks really cool , titanium alloy, leica look,..
A 35mm (equiv) prime lens on F2 is pretty sweet and 12mpix is nice (most pro compacts like the canon g12 only have 10 which i feel is too low)
Its also pretty feature packed and can even shoot 720p :o
Hybrid view is cool as well but lowest iso is 200, i am only happy with 125 or less

Looks like a damn cool travel cam or a second backup cam to me!!

Two things i need to know:
How fast is it ? (most compacts are slow as fook, even the top canon g12)
How much $$ (they announced a US $ 1200 pricetag which is very steep imo)

If both questions are favorable i am probably getting one as soon as it hits the street :o

If you can't afford the Leica M9 with a noctilux f0.95 lens this might be the one for you

From what I have heard it is very fast and responsive. Iso 200 as a min is a bit annoying, especially if you are trying to make the most of your off camera strobes in daylight, but with a shutter that can sync at high speed (don't know how fast yet) as well as an inbuilt 3 stop ND filter it should hardly matter) and a very high quality aps-c sized sensor this should still be a very good camera.

I have a 5DmkII and a ton of lenses, and I think I'll get this camera. It's what I've been waiting for for years. Up to now, every singe compact camera without exception (except maybe the M9 and 10) has been crap for a few or many reasons. This one looks like the first one they have made with photographers in mind, not gizmo-heads.

Same here dubbie.

And yes, built in ND8 and a real dslr sensor are awesome things!

It is by all means a beautifully made camera with the specs needed by pro photogs.
I will most probably be needing a second camera but it'll have to be one that can use my EF lenses so i'll most probably go for a 5DmkĀ³ when it is released (making my 5DmkĀ² the backup/2nd body or 2nd shooter cam).
Still going to try to have a hands-on with the x100 asap though :)
