Fujifilm X100S Wins EISA award for the Best Advanced Compact Camera 2013-2014
FUJIFILM Corporation (President and CEO: Shigehiro Nakajima) is delighted to announce that the X100S has been crowned “European Advanced Compact Camera 2013-2014” by judges at the esteemed European Imaging and Sound Association (EISA) awards.
Fujifilm’s X series cameras have consistently triumphed at the EISA awards over the last 3 years, winning the Best Product - Advanced Compact Camera Award for the FUJIFILM X100 in 2011, and European Professional Compact System Camera of 2012-2013 with the FUJIFILM X-Pro1 last year.
EISA judges were particularly impressed with the X100S’s outstanding image quality. Commenting on the award, the EISA jury said;
"Continuing the successful design and concept of the X100, the Fujifilm X100S advances this lightweight and compact fixed-lens series with a 16-million-pixel APS-C size X-Trans CMOS II sensor. It also features faster in-camera processing and a more advanced hybrid viewfinder but still uses the same excellent 23mm F2.0 wide-angle Fujinon lens. Fujifilm’s unique split-image technology makes manual focusing easy, and the X-Trans sensor achieves extraordinary image resolution by eliminating the low-pass filter. Moiré artifacts are avoided via the unique color patterning of the X-Trans sensor. The improved viewfinder combines an optical rangefinfder with a 2,360K-dot LCD panel for maximum clarity, and the addition of a phase-detection AF system improves focusing in all conditions."
