Fujifilm is cashing in on the retro camera/photgraphy craze that's overtaken cameraphones and Facebook over the last year and it's manifested itself in the form of the X100. The 12.3-megapixel camera takes most of its styling cues from the Leica line of shooters, right down to the switch on the front.

CrunchGear says the X100 has a DSLR-grade sensor, a 35mm equivalent F/2 prime lens, 720p video capability and has a "hybrid viewfinder" which lets you use the eyepiece as a traditional viewfinder, or activate an 800x600 electronic one. And apparently Leica inspiration comes at a Leica price, beecause the X100 will cost $1200 when it comes out in March. [CrunchGear]
