While I was waiting in Heathrow airport for my flight, I decided to wander through the camera shop Dixons. I got to try out a couple cameras that I hadn’t really had the chance to play with, a Pentax Q and a Fuji X100.
I was surprised how small the Pentax Q was, and the images surprisingly good, even just in the camera store. The 50mm equiv. F1.9 lens has the ability to render backgrounds in a nice out of focus bokeh, despite the tiny sensor. Nice camera, but can’t justify the ridiculous price.
The Fuji X100 stood out for its amazing hybrid optical electronic viewfinder. I can see why people like it. Especially cool was the in viewfinder histogram. Has the feel and character of a Leica, and you wonder why Leica hasn't made a camera like this themselves.
