FUJIFILM, capitalizing on the immense popularity of its FinePix X100, has officially introduced the FinePix X10, a model that's designed with the same retro styling of its big brother but built to compete in the premium compact digital camera market. A quick look at the camera's specs reveals a large 2/3-inch 12 megapixel EXR CMOS sensor that immediately sets it apart from its rivals. Other distinguishing features include a 4x optical zoom lens and a broad sensitivity range (ISO 100-12,800), as well as a very fast maximum continuous shooting speed of 10fps at medium resolution and 7fps at full. With an announced November release, there's still no official word on pricing, though rumors have the price point pegged at $599.
