What is a classic textbook case of increasing the sales figure of a particular piece of hardware before a successor is released? Why, roll out a limited or special edition of the current model – it is that easy. Nintendo’s been doing it with great success for a long time now, and perhaps Fujifilm wants to follow suit with a special edition of their Fujifilm X100. The imaging company’s Facebook page shows off the special edition of their X100 camera model, where only 200 of these puppies will be released.
What other hardware changes will there be, if any? Sorry to disappoint you, but the only ‘special’ thing about this special edition would be the tan leather on the case, as well as a leather case to match the original, making it look as though it was some distant relative of a Leica camera at times.
Just in case you cannot remember the hardware specifications of the X100, here they are – this is a 12.3-megapixel shooter with an APS-C CMOS sensor, sporting an EXR processor and a 23mm F2 Fujinon lens, a hybrid viewfinder and a 2.8″ LCD display. Fujifilm has slapped a $1,200 price tag on this special edition model if you are interested.
