I fell in love with the Fujifilm X100S shortly after we received it last year. It has such a solid feel, and I’m enamored with Fuji’s dynamic range options and film simulation modes (they’re more than just digital filters, as they change a range of things about the camera’s color rendering). And then there’s the retro looks that beat other manufacturers‘ retro looks, thanks in large part to the old-school mode-dial-by-proxy (the various dial combinations create the mode).
