Fuji X100s

Shooting weddings, street, family…anything…. with the Fuji X100s,
….the camera with soul! | Greg Coltman

Ok, so I know I am late to the party but hey, being late is fashionable right? So after much deliberation I purchased a Fuji X100s (a few months before the Fuji X100T was announced) for several reasons. As a documentary wedding photographer I’m always looking for something to add to may arsenal of tools to allow me capture special moments. I had read all the technical reviews and real world usages, I liked the styling, Image quality was superb, High ISO noise handled well, silent shutter etc etc at least that’s what they all said.. One thing I have learnt is that when people spend a fortune on gear they always see the best in it. It’s quite rare that someone shells out a grand on equipment then bemoans its capabilities. They want to report that the camera / car / bike etc that they have bought is the best….perhaps it’s a perceived fear that if they were to negatively report on the equipment, it calls their judgement into question… Photographers are a funny bunch lol. So, after seeing all the positives the ONLY way I could get to the truth was to buy the thing and use it. I have no relationship with Fuji and this is the first Fuji camera I have owned (shot Minolta, canon, yashica, Olympus ) I’m NOT going to talk about tech specs. These are well documented all over the interwebby… Im NOT going to talk about styling…Just take a look at it…its cooler than a cucumber on an iceberg. What I am going to talk about, briefly, is how it shoots, how it makes me shoot and how it feels to shoot….

Underground with the X100s | Matt Law

Since it’s unveiling in 2010 as the X100 to it latest iteration as the X100T, this little camera has garnered a massive following. Sure, it’s a retro-styled, fixed-lens rangefinder that seems most at home in the hands of a street photographer, but after almost a year of packing the X100s with me to places it probably should not have gone, I must admit, I am a total fanboy. My latest adventure with the camera was to test it out in one of the nastiest environments I’ve ever been foolish enough to bring expensive electronic equipment. Caves. In the past, I’ve packed Pentax and Nikon DSLRs into the dark, muddy depths of the earth and I’ve always come out with reasonable results. The sticking point (no one got stuck, don’t worry), though, was that these cameras were big. Too big for crawling around underground. The X100s is my first compact camera and it’s size has been one of the most stand-out features. Packing this little beauty through limestone tunnels, often only the width of my hips, proved to be almost effortless (there was still plenty of effort involved) in comparison to the bigger cameras. As always, the high-ISO performance of the X100s did not disappoint. Of course there was noise while shooting  at ISO 6400, however, considering what I was asking the camera to do, I was more than happy with the results…….

Winter Doldrums Defeated By … Andre’ The Fuji X100s | Streetshooter

It’s no secret that Phila has not paid the Spring Summer weather service so now we have Winter. It’s ok, we just have people on the street freezing and homeless, people committing murders, divorces, marriages, babies being borne, young people and even old people dying. There’s lots going on here and maybe if I wasn’t so damn cold I could get off my azz from the couch and stop watching CNN. Well, this is called winter doldrums and it’s a disease that creeps in when the wether gets cold and stays until it warms up.  There is no known cure NOR HAS THERE EVER BEEN FOR THIS WINTER DOLDRUM SICKNESS. So a few dayz passed and Tanya said get the hell off your ass and get some exercise. I thought to my self, Shooter, maybe she’s right. So I went upstairs to the office and sat at the Mac and started exercising my fingers by typing and opening LR and looking at photos…….

Fuji X100s vs x100t: Portraits & More | The Inspired Eye

Member Neill Soden got his hands on the Fuji X100T. He has a lot of nice family oriented images so I asked him to talk about his images and his opinion on the Fuji x100s vs x100t since he had both. [All images made with the X100t] I want to thank Olivier Duong for allowing me to write for his site once again. It’s always a great feeling when asked by such great collaborations to show off a little of one’s work. I really love taking photos, and continuously do so. I tend to try a little bit of everything, most of it are all ideas and projects I make up as I go. I do tend to stay way from big stuff with lights, props and models. Although I would love to give it a go at some point, it usually comes with some sort of cost that is very hard to recuperate.  Also, my growing philosophy of my photography is to keep the gear need and use low, light and easy to carry around. As I make little to no income from photography, I could say it’s driven a lot by my passion and not  by money. I am assuming this helps to some degree, as there are no pressure to perform, and no one to shoot for but myself. It does not help with gear lust, though. For most events and gatherings or even going out in the streets, I’ve got my X100T on me. Be it a outing to a restaurant or social event at a friend’s home……

Fuji X100T vs X100s – 9 Reasons Why You Should Upgrade |
Alik Griffin

In the last few months I’ve been reading a lot of blogs and reviews on the Fuji X100T, and there is this thing they all seem to imply, “The X100T isn’t really worth the upgrade if you already own the X100s.” I couldn’t really say whether or not I agreed with this since I never owned any Fuji camera since the Fuji X100T. But honestly only a few bloggers have any business talking about Fuji cameras. Zack Arias and Patrick Laroque to name two. Most other blogs should be taken with a grain of salt, including this one. The reason is, Fuji cameras are special, there is something unique these cameras offer to photographers that goes beyond tech specs and sensor sizes. It’s something not quantifiable and can’t be measured by DXOMark and most people don’t understand that. So to get to the bottom of this, I decided to borrow a Fuji X100s and try it out for a week to see how it felt compared to the X100T. Most people have the X100s before trying out the X100T, where as I’ve been using the T and am going back to the S. And wow! The T is a serious upgrade. It’s hard to believe the S is only a year and a half old. Feels more like five years. After using the X100T and trying out the S for awhile, here are a few of the big things that stood out to which I feel make the X100T a great update………

Learn Photography from Pro Photographers | V. Opoku

My name is V. Opoku, but usually just V does the trick and I am documentary wedding photographer based in London, UK (for now). I am also a bit of a traveller, you know the type of guy to book a one way ticket somewhere and then figure things out from there – yep, one of those guys. About 20 months ago, I started to use the Fujifilm X-Series for Wedding Photography. It was not an intentional switch from DSLR to Mirrorless because at the time I did not have any gear (my Nikon D700 kit got stolen). Shooting exclusively with the Fujifilm X-Series was just a discovery that worked out well for me. My vision is to build human connections whilst creating a body of work that clients will cherish for years to come. And I feel that my current kit has really helped me bring that vision to life ; In the sense that the smaller and more discreet cameras and lenses helps me to blend in much easier on wedding days……

Fujifilm X100T Full Review with X100s Comparison | Mirrorlessons

The Fujifilm X100T, the third camera in the X100 series, has attracted lots of attention much like its predecessors even if it doesn’t bring as many outstanding upgrades as the second in line, the X100s. This new camera has the same sensor and the same lens as the two first models. For those who already own the X100s, I can come out and say right away that I wouldn’t recommend a switch. However if you are interested in entering the Fujifilm X world for the first time, it is an entirely different story. Specifications aside, the X100T certainly demonstrates the maturity of a camera that in my humble opinion still holds the title of the best product in the X line-up. The X100T is a compact camera. It won’t enter your jean pocket but will fit comfortably inside a coat pocket. My point here is that it is very portable and that is, without a doubt, one of its main advantages, especially when you consider that it includes an APS-C sensor, a fast aperture lens and an advanced viewfinder. The camera has a robust build quality with magnesium alloy parts at the top and bottom. This time I also have concrete proof of its robustness and I’m not just talking about feeling. During my first days with the camera, I accidentally dropped it (first time ever) and it hit the cold tarmac 5cm away from green grass (irony at its best, I guess). As shown in the photo below, the body did suffer some scratches but nothing else. The camera still functions perfectly in every way……..

Fuji X Buyer’s Guide :: Accessories | Zack Arias

In wrapping up this series on FujiFilm X cameras, I’m going to talk about a few of my favorite accessories from batteries to straps to bags to odd ball stuff. Be sure to check out the first two posts in this series. The Fuji Cameras Buyers Guide and the Fuji Lenses Buyers Guide. Batteries :: The great thing about Fuji X cameras is how small they are. The bad thing about Fuji X cameras is their batteries are small as well. Smaller batteries = less juice. This used to be quite an issue with the original x100. If I was going to be out shooting with that camera all day I always had four to five batteries with me. The X100S brought better power management and I was comfortable with three batteries for a day. With the X100T I can head out with two fully charged batteries and make it through the day. That said, I’ll take three just in case. Same goes for the X-Pro1 or X-T1 for me……….

My Fuji X100s and My 45 Year Old Canon QL17 ~
Photography Gone Full Circle | Tom Collins

I’ve been taking pictures for a long time, never professionally although I have been paid a few times, but always just for the fun of it.  I have struggled to understand what kind of photographer I am, nature; city; architecture; landscape; fine art, and have decided that I’m a little bit of all of them. The one thing I am clear about is that I love taking pictures, I love seeing the world around me and I love looking at it through a lens.  And I always, always have a camera with me. About 3 years ago I moved away from the large dSLR’s in favor of the smaller more compact systems that are easier to have with me all the time.  I should point out that I’m 66 years old now and loading a bag or backpack with big heavy camera bodies and lenses and filters, and flashes just isn’t that much fun and it’s just not convenient for my style of shooting.  But I really enjoy good image quality and don’t like sacrificing IQ for convenience……..

Fuji X100T and X-T1: Choosing the right camera for street photography |
Mike Evans

After extensive experience with the Fuji X-T1, especially using it with the 27mm f/2.8 pancake lens for street photography, I now have my hands on the new X100T. The X100 cameras, launched in 2011, are probably the most popular modern digitals for street and the T is the latest iteration with electronic shutter, an improved hybrid viewfinder and higher-resolution screen. But first, back to basics. Many consider a Leica M, from the original M3 to the latest M240, to be the natural choice and I wouldn’t entirely disagree:  I love all Ms. But this little X100T is a great alternative with a cartload of bells and whistles if you like that sort of thing. The Leica offers simplicity and, without a doubt, this can be a positive thing. The X100T is a far more complex digital camera but it can provide an equally rewarding experience if you take the trouble to get to grips with the features. In reality, while comparisons may be made, Leicas are in a class of their own, if only on price, and cannot be directly compared with digital mirrorless cameras such as those from Fuji. Biggest direct competition for the X100T actually comes from its siblings, the X-E2 and X-T1……..
