Ok, first the health warning.
This is an officially sanctioned 'hands on' run through of the brand new Fuji X100S by 'The Fuji Guys', so they are hardly going to show you anything it is not so good at, but all the same it does look VERY promising.
I accept that I may be a little premature with this statement but as an owner of the X100 I could not help but be impressed by the focusing speed in the test compared to the outgoing camera.
Also check out the peaking demo, which I remain to be convinced by.
As you can see in the video it does not seem to work so well on lighter subjects, though this is a youtube video so I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt.
The pseudo 'split image' function which relies on the 'phase detection' built into the sensor does look much more promising.
Though that could be down to nostalgia on my part....
They do seem to have made the menu much more accessible as the demo for the ISO control shows.
As a footnote the 'reviewers' are using a preproduction model, so a few of the buttons are in the wrong place on this model.
It does go to show just how down to the wire on a launch manufacturers go with new camera's.
Have a look and let me know what you think?
