If you want to fall in love with photography all over again then just consider the Finepix X 100 camera from Fujifilm. This camera combines the old generation cameras design and styling elements with the latest in imaging technology. The chassis of the camera has all the traditional design elements which make it look very prestigious.
There are manual dials in the camera and they are very efficiently placed so that the photographer is given easy control over the image aspects. The shutter speed, exposure control etc can be checked even before turning on the camera because of this set up.
The camera offers very good ergonomics too. It is not bulky as its older siblings but in the contrary is very compact and can easily fit in your palms. The control buttons, dials etc are all placed very carefully so that the user can access them without any sort of difficulties.
The top and bottom portion of the camera that houses the controls is made up of cast iron magnesium alloy. This gives the camera body very high durability but also very light weight. The dials in the upper control deck are cast out of metal. The premium quality is obvious from the over all look and feel of the device.
