New Fujifilm XF1 Camera Puts Quality & Performance In Your PocketFujifilm has added a new camera to their X-Series digital camera line. The new Fujifilm XF1 has the same excellent 12-megapixel 2/3-inch CMOS sensor they used in their popular X10 compact camera (read our Fujifilm X10 review). But unlike the X10, the XF1 is made to fit in your pants pocket. It has a 4x 25-100mm f/1.8-4.9 optical zoom with a manual zoom ring – one of the other features that set the X10 apart from other high-end compact cameras. The lens collapses almost completely into the camera when the camera is off and the power switch is integrated into the lens. To power up the camera you twist the lens and pull it out of the body to put it in standby and then turn it on by rotating the zoom ring (see photos, below). And like the rest of Fujifilm’s X-Series cameras, the XF1 has a great build and beautiful, distinctive styling.
