Making its first debut last year, the Fuji Feather makes its way back for 2011.

Essentially, the Fuji 2011 Feather is the same as the 2010 with minor tweaks. Those changes are apparent in the colors available and metal clips to route the cables. (Last year, plastic zip ties were used.)

When comparing the 2011 Fuji Feather to last year’s, its colors are almost day and night. When asked why the Feather features more “stealth” colors, Fuji said the Japanese distributor had a lot of say on the colors, since the Fuji Feather is very popular in Japan.

Releasing in red, white, sparkling gray and black, retail price will be around $650.
