Daily Adventures with the Fuji X100s | Matt McCord

Matt here with a short blog posts about my experience using the X100s. Right off the bat, I want to say that I don’t write technical reviews. I write reviews based off experience. I don’t pixel peep. If you want to see density and ISO charts, there are a lot of great websites that offer those. Now, with that out of the way…let me tell you about my experience with owning, and shooting everyday, at weddings, etc. with the Fuji X100s. I had the original X100, so I was already familiar with the layout of the X100s when I upgraded to it. So, there wasn’t a big learning curve with the camera for me. It might be different for you, however. One of the first things that struck me like a ton of bricks upon using the X100 for the first time was the total difference in shooting with it vs. shooting with a DSLR. Your entire way of shooting becomes different. You can see more of the world around you with the X100s if you hold the camera properly, so that one eye can see your surroundings while the other looks through the VF. More on that later…….

An Ode to the Fuji X100s | Sean Kelly Conway

My most influential  camera was surely the classic Leica M6 I bought mounted with a 35mm Voigtlander Color Skopar Lens (above), and kept loaded with Kodak Tri-X for nearly a year.  Inspired by my reading of „Leica as a Teacher“ I wanted to give myself some parameters and develop a cohesive style of photography for the street material I was shooting in Korea at the time. I was also in love with the greats of Leica photography, who swore by the value of this simple machine. The camera served me well, and travelled across Asia, keeping pace without miss. I learned heaps from the constraints, and if photography is sometimes called the art of omission, I can’t stress how much the constraints of a fixed lens and BW film taught me about the craft.  I loved it’s intuitiveness and inconspicuous size- easy to pack, and pull out without alerting everyone to the fact. It opened up those quiet, quick moments, when everything is illuminated- and one needs to capture things with click of their eye. Upon returning from Asia I began doing more commercial photography and my workflow shifted much more in the digital direction. I would often keep my Leica around, but found myself using it less and less. I had tanks, but no scanner, and the couple labs doing color processing in the area where expensive and sub-par (still have about 30 rolls of film in my chest). It started to gather dust, and I was finding less and less time for my personal photography. Eventually I came to sell it, luckily the hold their value impeccably well. But I needed a replacement. I looked at the Leica M, but couldn’t spend $6,000 for a mediocre digital sensor camera just because it was made in Germany. I opted for the Fuji X100s, and it became my new personal camera, that I could keep in my bag most of the time, and even take on jobs- usually just to capture an off kilter moment……..

Why I love my Fujifilm X100S | Ken Lyons

The Fujifilm X100S is a great camera. It’s both versatile and good looking… although that second point is purely subjective. I personally like the way it looks and feels. I like the dials on top of the body. It just feels like a camera. I guess it’s because I grew up with cameras that had dials for selecting shutter speeds and aperture rings on the lenses. The X100S brings back memories of some of my earlier exploits with a camera! There were undoubtedly some issues with the first variant of the X100. Focusing problems plagued the camera to a degree and there were some very high profile photographers giving it a bad wrap. They “wanted” to love the camera, but “just couldn’t”. I think most of those issues were fixed with firmware updates though and certainly by the time I bought into the system with the X100S, the focusing was much improved. There didn’t seem to be many, if any, problems with the system by that stage. So, what makes the X100, X100S and now the X100T such great cameras? Let’s take a look at some of the reasons I like these cameras so much….

Marrakech and Ozoud Falls | Luke Walker

Foolishly forgetting that we’d be visiting peak summer when the temperature would be a scorching 40+ degrees, a few weeks back my brother and I decided to take a trip to Marrakech, a place I’d wanted to visit for some time. Despite a somewhat aggressive confrontation with some locals on arrival and frustrating encounters with several souk owners on the first day, we loved it. And the heat wasn’t that bad. The two of us spent just under a week exploring Marrakech’s labyrinth of narrow alleys, visiting the main points of interest, sampling the local food and relaxing in bars with gorgeous panoramic terraces. We also took a trip to the province of Azilal, 150km northeast of Marrakech, to see the breathtaking Ouzoud Falls (photos towards the end of this post). Marrakech is great. The colours, smells, energy and atmosphere. I’d love to visit again……..

Just A Few Warm Impressions On Fujifilm X100S | Sebastian Boatca

I do own a Fujifilm X100S mirrorless camera. This is not that typical kind of technical review of a small camera, but a brief description of my attitude towards a camera with attitude. The web is full of such technical stuff – I tell you, there are some excellent reviews out there and I, too, have read them and helped me make a decision, when choosing this X100S. What is it? It is a small and unique mirrorless camera, made by my favorite digital camera producer Fujifilm, with a revolutionary X-Trans APS-C sensor, without the anti-aliasing filter, delivering outstanding images with rich details and great colors in a 16 megapixel resolution. It has a fixed 23mm F2.0 lens, delivering sharp images with great bokeh. It has a built-in flash too, very intelligent and works great when you need a fill light on the go. And with that hybrid viewfinder? It is a camera built for photographers…..

The Fuji X100s and X100t | Ian MacDonald

I have been shooting with the Fuji X100 series (X100s / X100t) for several years now, and I can say with complete confidence that these cameras have changed my photographic life.  I’d like to share my experiences with them, discuss some technical aspects, and show some images.  Consider this a walk through my journey with the Fuji X100 series that starts with the Fuji X100s, and moves into my new love affair with the Fuji X100t.   It’s a long read, there is a lot of sample photos, and I hope you enjoy it! ……

My 2.5 Years With Fujifilm X-Series Cameras And Lenses |
Bradley Hanson

This review is 2.5 years in coming, and isn’t really a review but rather a personal history of why the Fujifilm X-Series, specifically the X-Pro1 and X100S, is a perfect fit for me: the cameras I had been waiting for. I am a very technical and precise person, but this is not a technical review. These cameras have been out for years and there are much better reviews, including one by my friend Vincent Opoku (link below). I wanted to write something initially because using these cameras was relatively revolutionary for me, but I also wanted to let the beer goggles dissipate and write logically and dispassionately about the experience so those considering the system could get a realistic understanding of what to expect without all the usual superlatives that come from excitement, and also to spare readers the agony of run on sentences like the one you are enduring now…..

The Myth of More (not just another Fuji X100T review) | Randall Armor

I’ll say this right up front- what you’re about to read is not a review of the Fujifilm X100T. That’s a good thing, because I’m a lousy camera reviewer. So if that’s what you’re looking for, stop reading now and hightail it over to one of the many excellent camera review sites instead. You know the ones. Just don’t forget to help support these reviewers’ growing families and camera collections by clicking thru to one of their fine sponsoring vendors. You see, I’m in this for the pictures. I’m not a paid shill or toady for Fuji or any other manufacturer, although I would gladly cash their check in the unlikely event that they chose to send me one. I just bought a new Fuji X100T and I’m really impressed by it. But let’s get one thing straight here, OK? ……

My affair with Fuji… | Bill Gekas

As most people know I’ve been shooting with the Pentax system since I started photography when I was shooting film using a Pentax ME-Super and K1000 bodies which I still have in some cupboard somewhere. I never considered switching systems as the Pentax system was always adequate for what I was doing and once they brought out their digital bodies I continued with their digital cameras as I could use my older manual focus prime lenses on their latest bodies. By that time I also had invested enough into the system that switching to any other system would have been a costly exercise with no real gain or benefit with my work so i’ve been happily doing what I do with the system, but after almost 20 years of shooting with Pentax i’m now at a crossroads…..
