Leave it up to the Japanese to bring us on of the craziest cameras ever made. This is even stranger than the hotshoe Pez dispenser I wrote about in 2009.
Introducing, the Donut Camera! Yes, the made a camera not only in the shape of a donut – but actually to LOOK like a donut! Who is ready to buy one of these sweet cameras?

UK based photographer Jim Marks shares his thoughts regarding his early work with a pre-production model of the new Fuji X20. He’s also an X100 and X10 user as well. His rationale for the choice of Fuji strongly echoes mine and I’ll let the Fuji released video walk through that today.
Personally, I agree with almost all of what Jim states regarding the X series cameras that I have worked with and loved. You can refer to my Long Term Review of the Fuji X100 and I’ll have the same type of long term review coming up for the X10 as well.
For today, please enjoy the X20 video featuring Jim Marks. You can pre-order your X20 using the links below from Amazon and Adorama.
You can pick up a brand new Fuji X10 for only $489 ($111 less than the X20′s price). The X10 works as well today as it did before the X20 announcement.

Make no mistake, this camera is thoroughly modern and is packed with features you’ll find on many other cameras. However, it’s the manner in which they are combined and presented that set this Fuji apart from the competition for many who have succumbed to its addicting nature.
Fuji X100s & X20
The X100 and X10 are both superb cameras that I have used for over a year now and highly recommend without hesitation! Their successors, the Fuji X100s and the Fuji X20, are now available for pre-order.
“Fujifilm’s X-Trans sensor was one of the top camera tech innovations of 2012. Now, in the figurative blink of an eye, the company has turned around and launched the X-Trans II sensor plus two new, exciting X-series cameras at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show…“ Read the entire interview over at Imaging Resource (highly recommended!).
