The X100T stretching out | DearSusan

The X100T needs a fast SD card. When I started out, I loaded a 30MB/s SD card I’ve used elsewhere and then felt that the write/read performance was a bit slow while out shooting. Deciding to splash out on a couple of new 64Gb 95MB/s cards made a radical change. Several shots that I’d missed in various after dark spots had been put down to the X100’s slow processing, were in fact the SD card’s glacial write cycle holding things up. A lot…….

Fuji X100T Preview – Initial Thoughts & Sample Images | SLR Lounge

The Fuji X100 series of compact cameras has been a very exciting lineup for both advanced hobbyist and pro photographers alike. Serious hobbyists want a no-nonsense camera that delivers great images, offers full manual control, (and raw control!) and is built solidly. Hard-working pros are just tired of lugging their flagship full-frame bodies and lenses around for casual photography, and are looking for a camera that is built solid and doesn’t compromise on image quality. Oh, and it wouldn’t hurt if this camera also looks, well, less like a TV remote and more like what we envision a classic camera ought to.  The early point-and-shoot digital cameras basically looked like a 90’s Giga Pet / Tamagotchi, i.e., an ugly, mass-produced electronic device. The Fuji X100 series is one of those classic / retro style cameras that bucked such trends, at least according to most of the buzz on the Internet since the first X100-series hit shelves in early 2011. It’s got mechanical dials and wheels.  It’s got an optical viewfinder (rangefinder), yet it also has an EVF.  And it feels solid, well-built, and generally awesome in-hand.  It’s what a compact camera ought to be………

REVIEW: First Impressions of the Nissin i40 Flashgun
for the Fuji X-Series | Jeff Carter

Last week I received the new Nissin i40 flash for the Fujifilm X-Series cameras from Cambrian Photography, a superb customer focused independent photographic retailer located in Colwyn Bay, North Wales. One of the criticisms of the X-Series has been the lack of a credible flashgun for the system.  While Fujifilm have produced three flashguns (the EF-42, EF-20 and EF-X20), these have been lacking in the flexibility that professional and enthusiast photographers have been demanding. I bought the EF-20 for my X100 in early 2013 and while this is a great little flash, it doesn’t allow me to get very creative due to it’s limited controls. Fujifilm have hinted that a new flash is on the way in 2015 but in the meantime Nissin have stepped up to the plate and delivered a Fujifilm compatible version of its award winning i40…..

Mr. T. – an X100T review | Jonas Rask

So what could I possibly write that hasn’t already been written about the X100 series from Fujifilm? The truth, not much! Yet here I am, scribbling down words to try and describe my thoughts about the third iteration of this amazing camera. In fact this is really the first time I have written anything about the X100/S/T other than just show images from the camera. I have never done a proper review. Why? I don’t really know, but I think I’m scared to do one because of the sheer amount of stuff I really could say about this camera series. I simply do not know where to start, and how to end it! It has been my go to camera for 3 years now. Never leaving my side, like a good companion. So I will try to present the features of this latest model, and then try to draw some parallels/differentiations to the older models where appropriate. So let’s get to it……..

Thoughts on the Fujifilm X100T | Michael Catacutan

After falling in love with the first Fujifilm x100 but ultimately deciding I didn’t need both the x100 and X-Pro1, I’m back with my original love affair and I have to say, it looks like he’s a keeper (The X-Pro1 has since been replaced with a Sony a7). If you’re familiar with X-Series cameras, the x100T should feel familiar. If you’ve never held an X-Series camera, the x100T is going to feel amazing for the first time. The first thing most people notice with this camera is the rangefinder throw back design and manual dials for shutter speed, exposure compensation and aperture. The second thing they notice is that it’s actually digital with it’s 3 inch LCD on the back. I won’t go into the technical aspects of the camera as you can find that elsewhere, instead I’d rather just talk about what I dislike and what I absolutely love. The good news is, there’s not much to dislike about the camera. The bad news is, the things I dislike, I absolutely hate…….

Fuji 18mm f/2 R review | Techradar

Fujifilm’s acclaimed X series of compact system cameras is supported by an unusually diverse range of wide-angle prime lenses. These include 14mm, 18mm, 23mm and 27mm options, and there’s also a 16mm lens due in 2015. Thanks to the X series cameras’ 1.5x crop factor, this 18mm lens has an effective focal length of 27mm (compared with full-frame cameras) along with a reasonably fast widest aperture of f/2. The retro styling of the lens is a perfect match for cameras like the Fujifilm X-T1. As a ‘pancake’ lens, it’s physically short at 41mm, and comes complete with an aperture ring that’s calibrated in 1/3rd click stops. At one end of the aperture ring’s travel, an ‘A’ setting gives access to program auto-exposure and shutter-priority shooting modes…….

A year with Fuji XE2 Mirrorless.. do i miss the DSLR? |
Cameron Mead

In the weekend while out and about  we walked into a camera shop and they had to my suprise..the brand new Canon 7dmk2 DSLR! Its been 12 months since I’ve held a DSLR.  To be honest i was actually reasonably happy to be reunited with this functional photography tool, almost like a spark re-ignited perhaps like bumping into an old friend. Not the annoying ones you keep seeing posting crap on facebook but ones that bring back a flood of memories from your high school years. Just hearing that mirror slap, seeing your subject optically and the ultimate response to fire off shots or 10 fps if you wish is something i had forgotten about. It hits you emotionally especially after 6 years of shooting the trusty steed that was the DSLR. Some often say you don’t know what you had till its gone.. Thankfully Canon & Nikon are still pushing forward with DSLR for the masses and good on them, its still a fantastic tool. I described it to my friend as like cutting down a tree, one chainsaw does it with no hassle(DSLR), but the other one (Mirrorless) you just love using a bit more even if it takes more time & effort to cut through.. Obviously there are going to be times when you need to make money & chop as many trees down in a day as you can. For now we are still just an amateur/hobbyist who has big dreams of travel & new levels of photography. So where is this going? am i starting to miss the trusty DSLR? perhaps………

Fuji X100T Review | Ken Rockwell

The Fujifilm X100T is the world’s best digital camera for travel, family and candid photography, replacing the old X100S. The X100T is so much better handling and gives far better images under a far broader range of conditions than any DSLR, mirrorless, compact or even LEICA camera that there is no contest. The X100T wins. The X100T, complete with a superb lens and flash, sells for half the price of a lensless full-frame DSLR, which most of the people reading this site buy every other month as they are introduced. This Fuji is a masterpiece, and much better made than a $3,000 DSLR, for a fraction of the price. If you’re thinking about getting an X100T, just get one. You’ll love it! If you already own the X100 or X100S, there’s no need to go buy the X100T unless you want much more handling speed and convenience, or a completely silent shutter. It’s essentially the same thing, with many things fine-tuned and added from the X100S. I bought mine in silver. I prefer silver because silver is the new black. Pros in the 1950s started using black camera so their cameras didn’t stand out and they could shoot without drawing attention to themselves. Today, people fear black cameras, while everyone sees a chrome X100T and presumes it’s a foolish old 35mm camera, and ignores it…..

Fujifilm X100T review: Naughty but niche | Pocket-lint

Verdict

The Fujifilm X100T is – and to call on a word so often misused – a unique camera. Although largely similar to its X100S predecessor, it’s the new electronic rangefinder option within the already excellent hybrid viewfinder that make it a proposition like no other. Yes, it will only appeal to a specialist niche; those who have a specific remit they’re seeking. But the X100T is both unusual and good looking enough to captivate a wider audience, much like how a renovated classic car pootling along down the street will turn heads. Small but important changes have made their way into the third-time X100 too. There’s improved autofocus (it’s still not perfect though) and an enlarged and higher-resolution LCD screen than before, while a new electronic shutter option to 1/32,000th sec makes for near-silent use should you need it. However, there’s still no exposure lock dial and, crucially, close-up focus with those wide-open apertures does not come under the X100T’s remit (and other limitations, which are unavoidable, see the fastest mechanical shutter speed limited to f/8.0, so be wary). At £1,000 the Fujifilm X100T is hardly pocket money, but it’s capable of producing cracking images in the right hands, the lens is lovely and sharp from f/4.0 and beyond, and that’s all wrapped into a distinctive and sturdy design worthy of proud ownership. There’s no doubt in our mind that the X100T is the best in the series yet, so long as you’re aware of the rough in among the diamonds…….
