Fujifilm FinePix X100

21 Reasons why Fujifilm FinePix X100 is better

than the average

1.Vastly larger sensor
23.6 x 15.8mmvs 14.6 x 10.8mm (the average)
vs 81.2 x 25.4mm (best: Polaroid Snap)
The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
2.Considerably more focus points
49vs 37 (the average)
vs 425 (best: Sony Alpha a6500)
The more focus points the more flexibility in picking which part of the scene to focus on. They also give the image sensor a better probability in identifying the right area of the scene to focus on in more automatic modes.
3.Lower noise at high ISO
1001ISOvs 957ISO (the average)
vs 3702ISO (best: Sony Alpha 7S)
The maximum ISO at which the device still captures excellent quality images. Source: DxOMark.
4.Distinctly faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format
10fpsvs 7fps (the average)
vs 60fps (best: Nikon DL18-50)
Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
5.Modestly better color depth
22.9bitsvs 22.8bits (the average)
vs 42bits (best: HP Photosmart R927)
The better a device's color depth the more color nuances it can distinguish. Source: DxOMark.
6.Has a stereo microphone
Yesvs No (53% don't have it)
A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.
7.Has a 24p cinema mode
Yesvs No (76% don't have it)
24p is a video format (24 frames per second) traditionally used in cinema. Nowadays, it is used to create film-like motion characteristics.
74.4mmvs 95.2mm (the average)
vs 26.2mm (best: DxO One)
9.Wider dynamic range
12.4Evsvs 11.8Evs (the average)
vs 14.8Evs (best: Nikon D810A)
The better the dynamic range the system captures a wider number of values from dark to light leading to more details in low and highlights. Source: DxOMark.
10.Modestly less body volume
507.29cm³vs 531.12cm³ (the average)
vs 65.29cm³ (best: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX55)
11.Can create panoramas in-camera
Yesvs No (64% don't have it)
It allows you to take multiple photos capturing different parts of the scene, and then joins them together into a single photo.
12.Measurably less shutter lag
0.403svs 16.330s (the average)
vs 0.00025s (best: Leica M Typ 240)
The amount of time it takes the camera to take a photo, without having to focus.
13.Has an optical viewfinder
Yesvs No (71% don't have it)
An optical viewfinder (or OVF) allows the photographer to compose a shot while seeing exactly what the lens sees. There is no time lag and they require no power - as opposed to electronic viewfinders which can drain battery life. They are also better in low light situations.
14.Can be controlled remotely
Yesvs No (57% don't have it)
A remote control allows you to control the device remotely. The remote control can be included or optional.
15.Sizably less startup delay
3.2svs 34.8s (the average)
vs 0.01s (best: Nikon D70)
It takes less time for the camera to turn on and take a first picture.
16.Vastly more microphone(s)
2vs 1 (the average)
vs 2 (best: Sony Alpha a6500)
More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
17.Significantly wider aperture at minimum focal length
2vs 3 (the average)
vs 1 (best: Leica Q (Typ 116))
With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.
18.Has stereo speakers
Yesvs No (98% don't have it)
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound that surrounds the user from left and right side, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
19.Has or is a prime lens
Yesvs No (95% don't have it)
A prime lens has a fixed focal length. In general, these are sharper, with a wider aperture.
20.Memory-card slot on side
Enables access to memory card when mounted on a tripod
21.Auto exposure bracketing
For HDR photography
