Fuji X100s

V. Opoku | K-pture blog

This time, we meet V. Opoku. V. is a wedding photographer based in London (UK) and a Fuji X camera user. I’ve discovered his work a few weeks ago with his Fuji X100s review and I was hooked. I liked his style, his vision and his work for sure. Plus, V. is a really nice guy. Enjoy!
 
Que tal?, mi llamo V. Opoku, but I go by just « V », most of the time. London is home for the time being but I am working on a move to Barcelona at some point this year – wish me luck! I usually grow a beard during the winter months and have recently started to keep it throughout the summer too…….

Rome – Shooting jpeg! | Finn-B Hansen

In my previous post I mentioned that I was going to do an experiment during my trip to Rome, shooting only jpegs. I brought two of my Fuji cameras, the X-T1 and the X100s. I was also planning to test out the new classic chrome simulation in my X-T1. I decided to shoot only in jpeg, but I admit that I was tempted several times during the trip to set the camera to RAW+F. However, I stood by my decision, and kept the cameras on jpeg. The reason for doing this was all the discussions in a many X groups about the quality of the Fuji jpeg’s, and also to measure the quality of the images shooting under sometimes very difficult conditions. My conclusion is that in most cases the jpeg settings works really well, but sometimes I had problems when the light conditions changed fast. Most of the problems was clipping highlights and loosing details in the shadows. Sometimes it was also tricky to get the correct white balance. Some of those issues can be fixed using small corrections in Lightroom, but the WB can be difficult to correct on a jpeg file. I did this just as a test, and I’m really happy with the result, but in the future I will still shoot RAW for having more control. However, It was fun testing it!….

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……

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……….

Infrared on the Fuji x100s and x100t | SebImagery

A little while ago I wanted to try out infrared (IR) photography on my Fuji x100s.  There’s something different about IR that really makes it interesting.  The obvious is what you often see and that is the white foliage and dark water and skies.  Since plants (and most living organisms) reflect a lot of IR light they become ghostly white.  “But you live in Dubai Sebastian….where are you going to go see trees?”  Well that is true…we don’t exactly have forests out here….but there is a fair amount of greenery especially considering that twenty years ago it was nothing but sand out here.  The focus however is specifically cityscape photography in IR.  But anyway…I digress.  I was curious as to how IR changes things around the city.  Infrared behaves a bit differently than visible light.  There are services like LifePixel which can convert your digital camera to IR (with many different options) but many digital cameras can detect IR light already.  Well…ALL digital sensors can detect infrared light but manufacturers actually add IR filters……..
