I would like to preface that I may just have fallen in love.
I, being in the market for a camera, have had a dilemma with purchasing a image capturing device. Do I really need all the bells and whistles of an SLR? Do I really want to lug around a bulky camera as I frolic around town? Do I really want to shell the dough for an SLR? Then on the other hand, are the capabilities I look for in hi-res images available in point and shoots.? Why are point and shoots so ugly? How cool will I look with such an afeminite camera?
Then I saw this… the FinePix X100. This baby “combines all the latest technical digital innovations in a beautiful, traditional chassis which oozes class and prestige.” Everything I want in an image capturing device. So start saving your pennies, this is what I want for my birthday.
PS… Thanks to Party Paul for turning me on to this…
