Fujifilm's X100 Camera Is All Leica-y, In Both Looks And Price

Fujifilm is cashing in on the retro camera/photgraphy craze that's overtaken cameraphones and Facebook over the last year, and it's manifested itself in the form of the X100. The 12.3MP camera takes most of its styling cues from the Leica line of shooters, right down to the switch on the front.

CrunchGear says the X100 has a DSLR-grade sensor, a 35mm equivalent F/2 prime lens, 720p video capability and has a "hybrid viewfinder" which lets you use the eyepiece as a traditional viewfinder, or activate an 800x600 electronic one. And apparently Leica inspiration comes at a Leica price, beecause the X100 will cost $US1200 when it comes out in March. [CrunchGear]
