Good Feature Set

The X100 doesn’t have any manual controls for focusing or aperture, but there are a few nice feature touches along the way. Among them is a slow motion mode. Like most slow motion modes, the quality of the video gets significantly degraded (see a sample here) and it's best to stay as close to your subject so as to keep the video as crisp as possible. Keeping those limitations in mind, it's still a pretty cool feature.

There’s a pre-record too, which saves a few seconds of video before you hit the record button. There’s also a time-lapse recording function, which takes video clips at a choice of three intervals: one, three and five seconds. I'm not quite sure what you'd really do with time lapse, but more creative minds than mine might find it attractive.

You'll find six scene modes in addition to white balance settings, a macro mode for up-close focusing, but oddly no exposure control.
Simple Design

The X100 is well designed with few external buttons to navigate. On top there's a zoom lever. Drop to the back, a pair of buttons are available for playback and to switch between video and still camera mode. Below that, a four-way scroll wheel lets you adjust the flash, delete files and turn on or off the info display on the LCD (that's right, only three controls on a four-way control wheel). In the center, there's your record button. Pop open the LCD display, and there is a button for pre-record and power along with an SD card slot.
