Fujifilm X10 to sit between compacts and X100

Fujifilm's plans to expand its premium cameras beyond the well-known FinePix X100. Sources maintained Monday that a new model, the X10, would sit in between the DSLR-grade X100 and compacts. The Quesabesde details gave it a two-thirds-of-an-inch sensor in between a Canon G12 and Micro Four Thirds, or enough to help quality but not to rival pro cameras.

It would similarly be the first X-series Fujifilm camera to have real zoom. Photographers would get a 4X real zoom but would still get the X100's f2 aperture at its nearest zoom. The optics would put it into competition with not just the G12 but also the Panasonic LX5, the Olympus XZ-1, and other compacts for experienced shooters.

Some unknowns still exist, such as whether it would keep the 1950s-inspired look or the nature of the controls. Release timing also is an unknown and might not necessarily make 2011. Fujifilm is believed to be focusing on 2012 and may have its own interchangeable lens X-series camera at the same time.
