Fujifilm X100T Revisited | Keenan Hastings

Leaving Fujifilm was bittersweet. The aesthetic of the cameras were awesome, but if I had to be 100% honest I wasn’t in love with the specs on paper. The brand itself reminded me of Apple, the technology seemed a year behind, but everything worked so well. Fujifilm made me forget about megapixels and full-framed sensor’s, but it was one thing the cameras lacked at and it was fast auto-focus.This problem seemed consistent with every body that I tried, including the X-E1, X-E2, X-Pro 1, X-T1 and even the XQ2… I loved them all, but again it was the auto-focus that really turned me off. However, there is one camera that I remember loving and that was the X100T. My time with this camera was brief and by brief, I mean less than 60 days. It was a beauty, it gave me confidence, it received compliments and I felt like a real photographer…Except I was an inexperienced one. When I had the X100T I was fairly new to photography. I was just know figuring out what RAW was, I didn’t understand why my subjects were blurry when I used the electronic shutter… I didn’t know what an electronic shutter was. I had no real reason to be sharing my opinions on this camera as I wasn’t 100% aware of its capabilities……

My Self-Imposed 23mm Challenge with a Fuji X100T | Elisabeth Gray

The past few months I have fallen victim to a creative slump, a rut, a lack of enthusiasm around my photography. Call it what you want, I felt uninspired. Although I love nature and bird photography, I found myself struggling to make time to get out and shoot. We live on the gulf coast of southern Mississippi. There is an abundance of wonderful birdlife, beautiful sunsets and unique cypress swamps full of wildlife begging to be photographed. When I did get out, I found I was not very motivated to download my images, let alone take the time to process them. I needed a change. What I really needed was a challenge. I decided to try something I had heard of, but have never tried before, in the hopes that it would relight my photographic passion. We had a two week trip to France booked for the beginning of June. We were spending ten days in Provence and four days in Paris. Normally I would have lugged two DSLR’s and a camera bag stuffed full of lenses with me. But this trip was not a photography trip. This one was a vacation. We would be travelling with non-photographer friends and we were seeing the country for the first time…….

Fuji X100T Review | Tigz Rice

My main camera – the Canon 5D MKiii – and I have a brilliant working relationship. I’ve been shooting with the 5D series for pretty much the entirety of my professional career and it ticks all the boxes. Except, that is, for when it comes to taking a camera out for those ‘just in case’ days. Or the ‘please bring your camera to the family wedding’ days… I could go on but I’m sure you get the drift. Whilst I have been known to take the Canon 5D MKiii with me for non-work purposes, its size and weight (even with a nifty fifty) is often a deterrent and I end up relying on my iPhone, despite knowing that I’ll regret that decision afterwards. For a long time, I have felt a disconnect between the high production value of the images I produce for clients and the extremely low quality images that I document my own memories with. With this in mind, I’ve been on the hunt for a camera to fill the gap between my business and personal photography. The aim was to find something handbag friendly that could also live up to the expectations of a professional photographer when needed……

Fujifilm X70 vs. X100T – The Premium Compacts | MirrorLessons

In an earlier comparison between the Fujifilm X70 and the Ricoh GR II, I suggested that the X70 and X100T are, in many ways, cut from the same cloth. In addition to both being premium fixed-lens compacts from Fujifilm, they also incorporate the same 16MP APS-C X-Trans II CMOS sensor and feature a very similar design. You may be wondering: are there enough differences to merit a comparison? Even though the image quality is the basically identical, I would say that there are. The most salient differences are the field of view and optical quality of their respective fixed lenses, followed by the small gap between their autofocus systems. The remaining differences mostly regard the body, such as the size and weight, viewfinder (or lack thereof) and LCD screen……

One year (and a bit more) with Fuji X100T | Alessandro Michelazzi

Why this long intro to my Fuji X100T impressions after an year of usage? Simply ‘cause I found back with the Fuji digital camera that kind of color I could achieve when shooting with Fujifilm analogue slide. I remember the first X100. I was at the 2010’s Photokina in Koln, Germany, when they present it. Everyone was falling in love with that camera only looking at the item itself: the camera looks like an old rangefinder camera but still very very portable thanks to the integrated and fixed lens. I was testing and using the first X100 and I wasn’t finding it so amazing. The picture quality was good but I was struggling with the slow focus and the gimmick of the interface. At the time my mirrorless to go was the Samsung Nx100 and Nx200, I think the most underestimate system in the photography history. (you can read my impression here) When the second iteration – the X100S – come out I was able to try it in different situations and it was already a big different story: the new x-trans sensor gives what we were missing on the first camera: the unique Fuji colors. I was amazed about them especially at the high iso range. (you can read my test of the X100s here) But at the time I decided to wait a bit more. Until the X100t. Yes that was finally the camera to buy. After one year of usage I still consider the X100T not an easy camera for everyone: if you want to master at the best the camera you have really to study the user manual to understand how to set all the features……..

One year (and a bit more) with Fuji X100T | Alessandro Michelazzi

Photographers are lot of the times not only obsessed about the quality of the pictures but also about the tools they are using. We’re considering the cameras as our tool to get the job done, but it’s not a mystery that lot of the time, we’re looking to an item that can give us satisfaction and not frustration when we are shooting. I remember my first class of photography I took around 14 years ago: at the time (the year 2002) the digital reflex where kind of expensive and limited in the quality of images recorded. There was the big debate about analogue vs digital and who was the best one. In those years there was no mach: analogue photography was still an edge over the digital world. I remember, during that first class, that I was so impressed about the sharpness and the colors of the slides that where projected from the teacher in the room: you could see in that dark room a picture that was so vivid and so crisp. I was in love with those colors!…….

Fujifilm X100T Review: The Pro Toy | Stefan Etienne

There’s a Japanese camera manufacturer by the name of Fujifilm — and they’re rather good at what they do, despite being behind better-known counterparts — one starts with an “N” and the other with a “C” — however, that doesn’t matter. When Fujfilm has a camera as small and lightweight as this one, with all the tech needed to make great photographs — 16 megapixels are enough; the spec-wars aren’t important in this context. So let’s get to it: the chance to work with one of their most-beloved cameras: the X100T. It’s a small, mirrorless camera with a fixed lens, but with the control and quality to stand-in for a bigger, more expensive camera in a pinch. The Fujifilm isn’t so much a retro camera as it is a 21st century device of precise imaging. It might look hipster — *shudders* — but it’s very much in the present, with a spec sheet that I’ll explain in the next section. What is important about the X100T’s aesthetic is that it is completely attractive while remaining functional: leather-style grip around both ends, a plethora of knobs and buttons that allow for maximum manual control: exposure, aperture, shutter, focus lock, directional buttons, trash, function button, view mode, drive, scroll wheel, display modes, viewfinder diopter wheel — it has everything, and a little more…….

Fuji X100T Street Photography Review | Karl Edwards

Few cameras have inspired photographers as much as Fuji’s venerable X100 line of cameras. Street photographers are attracted to these cameras for their retro good looks and quiet operation but is that all they have to offer? Our Fuji X100T street photography review takes this excellent little camera for a spin to see how it performs on the street. Hit the jump for the full review!

Yup, I have a Leica M 240 sitting in my bag and every day I reach for the X100T on my way out the door. It’s really that good……..

Is the X100T the Ultimate Travel Camera? | David Cleland

I am one of those people who think a camera is an essential component of any travel inventory. Documenting a journey is important but a camera can often be a burden, the weight, the value and the fear of damage can mean it is left at home more often than not. The Fujifilm X100 camera changes the photographic landscape, now in it’s third generation the X100T brings some powerful features to an exceptionally portable image maker making it a contender for the Ultimate Travel Camera label. Is the Fixed Lens a Problem? The Fujifilm X100 series offers a 35mm field of view. This medium-wide lens is perfect for documentary photography from landscapes through to group or wide portraits. Having a fixed lens may feel restrictive but it is actually remarkably liberating to just have one field of view, you can zoom with your feet and 35mm really is ideal on most occasions……

X100T, MY TRAVEL BUDDY | Ivan Joshua Loh

A few days ago DP review just awarded the X100T the best compact camera for travel. X100T is one of the most capable compact camera with all the controls literally on your finger tips. The hybrid electronic/ optical viewfinder is such a joy to use. These are some of the reasons why I am in love with this sexy looking camera. Another reason is the flash sync of 1/4000. This is possible because X100T’s 23mm bright F2 lens has a leaf shutter. When the opportunity arise; I will pair it with strobe lights to have some fun at work. Freezing at 1/4000 is not every camera’s cup of tea. Maybe I should bestow another award unto X100T as the best compact camera for commercial photography! I am late comer to join X100T club. Having it for about 6 month. And it has been my travel buddy time to time. Here is a collection of pictures taken with the X100T around sunny Singapore……
