Some manufacturers seem to fail to understand what photographers of this day seek in a compact, digital package (I’m talking to you, Nikon), some choose a safe and dependable bet. Add a couple of manufacturers who don’t really know what they are doing, and you have a whole bunch of cameras which are often good, but a little… predictable? Yes, that seems to be the word. Happily, there are those who strike a certain balance between innovative technology and character to stand out from the crowd. On the expensive side, we have Leica. On the less expensive side, we have Fujifilm, which has been steeling thunder for the last whole year at the very least. Now, if there are two cameras in 2013 our team is most intrigued by, it’s the recently announced Fujifilm X100S and X20. So for those of you who feel one of these is the right tool for you, read on for the pre-order links.
