The official West Australian Fuji X100 launch was held at Malt Supper Club in Mount Lawley last week.  A very special thanks to Fuji, Brad Rimmer and Christian Fletcher!Nearly 100 people attended to see the unveiling of the camera and listen to presentations by Perth photographers Bard Rimmer and Christian Fletcher.  Feedback and images created by the photographers already indicate that the X100 is a compact camera that compromises nothing in terms of image quality and superb usability. The launch highlighted that this little camera is definitely set to live up to the hype started all those months ago when it was first announced.  This really does seem like a camera that is aimed squarely at the pro photographer and the photo enthusiast with a level of refinement simply not found from other smaller digital cameras in this class.Camera Electronic is pleased to offer a special deal to anyone who puts down a pre-order deposit on a Fuji X100.  If you put down a deposit with us to secure your camera we will give you a signed copy of Brad...

Fujifilm Australia have sent us a statement regarding the expected delivery delays on the new X100."You may have read media updates recently relating to the re-commencement of X100 production following the earthquake in Japan. We have received overnight, a further update from Fujifilm Tokyo. Faced with extreme challenges, very significant resources have been utilised so that as we speak, X100 is currently back in production. Fujifilm Tokyo anticipates commencement of exports by mid April, disrupting the original schedule by about one month. What does this mean for Australian customers? Fujifilm Australia anticipates seeing our next X100 shipment arriving in Australia towards the end of April, although at this stage we don't know what quantity we will receive.  Note that we currently have enough backorders and forward orders to take up all April-May stock arrivals, so at this stage any new customer orders will probably not be able to be filled until June.  As more information becomes available over the next couple of weeks we will be in a better position to advise on an ETA.   We once again thank you...

I just received an email from FujiFilm Australia regarding expected delays on the delivery of the X100 to Australia.  The message was brief with no real estimate on actual delivery dates but this is more than understandable considering the tragic and difficult circumstances which Japan now faces."Due to the March 11th earthquake that affected northeast Japan, the factory responsible for production of the new Fujifilm FinePix X100 digital camera has been temporarily shut down due to safety concerns.   FUJIFILM is currently assessing the factory conditions as well as accessibility via domestic logistics and working to determine the potential impact on the X100 market availability and initially scheduled release dates.   FUJIFILM is making every effort to quickly gather the information needed to provide an accurate update to our retail partners and consumers.   FUJIFILM appreciates your patience and will provide a formal update as soon as possible."  We will keep you up to date with any further news as it unfolds....

So Fuji have finally given us the go-ahead to put an order in for the much anticipated X100 classic style camera. For those tech-heads out there I'm sure you're already a full bottle on what the X100 is about and what it can do but for those who aren't read on...
