Equipped with both the super fast phase detection AF system, and contrast AF for accurate focusing in dark scenes, Intelligent Hybrid AF instantly switches to the optimal focusing system. Applying the fastest algorithm depending on the subject and scene, Intelligent Hybrid AF can bring your subject into focus in the blink of an eye — only 0.08 sec*. at its fastest speed so those priceless moments will never escape your lens.
The image processing power of the newly developed EXR Processor II not only produces images with increased resolution and higher quality at higher speeds, but also accelerates operational responses. Adoption of a dual CPU and increased clock frequency elevate performance to about twice the processing speed of the previous generation processor**. These improvements also speed up operation, reducing start-up time to only approx. 0.5 sec***. Working in tandem with the high-speed signal readout of the X-Trans CMOS II sensor, the processor reduces the shooting interval to 0.5sec, and raises the maximum continuous shooting speed to 6fps.
Maximum High-Speed Continuous Shooting Speed of 6.0fps (max. 31 frames*4) Shoot at a maximum burst speed of 6 frames per second at full 16-megapixel resolution to capture a series of exposures of moving subjects and other challenging photographic scenes and later select the best shot.
From instantaneous autofocusing in as fast as 0.08 sec*. to faster start-up, you can maximize the performance of the FUJIFILM X100S to its limits. Also after turning OFF the power, the FUJIFILM X100S enters a “sleep” mode (for a maximum of 24 minutes). Turn ON the power during this time, and the FUJIFILM X100S “wakes up” instantly, reducing the normal start-up time from about 0.9 sec. to approx. 0.5 sec. ready for you to frame and capture the moment.
