Point…And Shoot

I’ve been in the market for a new point-and-shoot camera for a while now. My current Panasonic Lumix has had a good run, but it’s definitely time for an upgrade. My Lumix is old now and doesn’t do as well as it once did for me. The biggest plus that camera ever had was that it has a Leica lens. So, now I’m looking for something new.

Around last September word was out about the Fujifilm x100 which was supposed to be set to arrive in stores this month.

With its retro styling, there’s no denying the X100 is a beautiful point-and-shoot digital camera.  It boasts a hybrid viewfinder, 23mm f2 lens and with 12.3MP is on par with many DSLRs. Additionally, it allows the user to adjust both shutter and aperture settings for fully manual control which I don’t believe many, or possibly any, other point-and-shoot cameras do. The catch? This camera, with its dazzling design and specs, comes at a much higher price than you might be willing to spend on a point-and-shoot camera, at about $1,250.

What do you think? Is it worth it?
