Fujifilm announced the X100T at Photokina 2014, so lots of photographers have been waiting for an X100s price reduction for a few weeks now. A deal is now available, as the compact camera has just had its price reduced by $200.
The successor to the Fujifilm X100s has been rumored for a very long time. A lot of information has circled on the web, hinting that the camera could be powered by a full frame sensor or by an organic sensor and that it would employ an electronic viewfinder as opposed to a hybrid viewfinder.
Neither of these rumors have turned out to be true. In fact, the new Fujifilm X100T features a 16-megapixel APS-C non-organic sensor and an improved hybrid viewfinder. The X100T is available for pre-order right now at Amazon, but it will begin shipping in late November.
Nevertheless, photographers have been hoping that the X100s would get a price reduction since the announcement of the X100T. Their prayers have just been answered, as this high-end X-series compact camera is now available for a little under $1,100, down from the original price of around $1,300.
Special Fujifilm X100s deal available before the launch of the X100T
One of the most praised compact cameras of recent times is the Fuji X100s. It was introduced in January 2013 as a replacement for the X100. The shooter may have been replaced by the X100T, but the specs list of the new model is not revolutionary. Instead, Fuji calls it an evolution of the X100s, so this means that the older version remains a powerful device.
If you were saving all your money to buy this camera, then you would be pleased to hear that a Fujifilm X100s deal is available at Amazon and B&H PhotoVideo. The compact camera has had its price slashed by $200, so click on the name of your favorite store to buy this beautiful device.
While Amazon is not offering any other incentives, B&H PhotoVideo will also ship to you about $36 worth of goodies for free. The list of accessories consists of a SanDisk 32GB SDHC card and a Lowepro Adventura Ultra Zoom 100 shoulder bag.
