The Fujifilm FinePix X100 is a high-end digital camera designed specifically for professionals and photography enthusiasts. The FinePix X100's main feature is its Hybrid Viewfinder which incorporates traditional glass viewfinder elements and an LCD panel to deliver two advanced viewfinder modes: OVF (optical) and EVF (electronic). Additionally, the FinePix X100 features a 12.3 megapixel CMOS sensor and an EXR image processor.

The FinePix X100's Hybrid Viewfinder greatly reduces chromatic aberrations while providing an OVF mode, which offers very broad optical coverage an parallax correction, and an EVF mode, which features a 1,440,000 dot LCD viewfinder which lets users preview exposure, depth-of-field and white balance while shooting. Its customized APS-C size 12.3 megapixel CMOS sensor provides the FinePix X100 with improved sensitivity, 10 times that of conventional compact digital cameras. Meanwhile, the FinePix X100's EXR image processor heightens resolution and improves high-sensitivity/low-noise and wide dynamic range performance.
