For a while now, i guess already a year or so, i have been using the x100s extensively for personal and professional work. Everything is superb of this little gem, its sensor, its noise handling, its actual handling, the looks, the viewfinder, the size and weight and ofcourse its lens. One thing a photojournalists needs perhaps more than anything is speed and eventhough the S in the name stands for speed its not speedy by all mean. It is slow, really slow compared to any budget DSLR. If you ...

I know, inflammatory. But I really feel it's about the perfect combination rangefinder-ish DSLR-sensor camera, and that lens is sooo sharp. The only downside is the battery life. It keeps letting me down, so I have two extra batteries at the ready. And they're only $15 on Amazon so it's not that big of a deal. Tack sharp pictures, super low light, wonderful in black-and-white, what's not to like? It's NOT a camera to catch running toddlers (at least without pre-focusing) oh but Fuji fixed the ...

I decided to write this, let's say review, because of two main critics I heard about X100S, and advanced compact cameras as a whole. These are: (1) compact cameras are pointless because of the existence of advanced mobile phones with cameras (2) x100s jpeg engine makes skin look artificial So I went with my x100s to a birthday party of a friend of mine and ...

All the good things you read about this camera are true.  However, it did not work out for me.  I bought this camera because it reminded me of my father's Leica M3 which I used for 20 years. I wanted a range finder camera with today's technology, and I did not want to pay Leica prices for it.  I thought the X100s is the one. The reason why this camera did not work out for me is as follows: (1) I wear glasses. So my eye sits at a distance from the viewfinder.  I found the viewfinder too small for ...

I don’t know about you but I am getting a little bored with high ISO tests, pixel peeping and Bible arguments between fan boys from different camps. Don’t get me wrong, high ISO tests are important and I use the comparometer on Dpreview here and check DXO ratings and fellow photographers and bloggers like everybody else. However, I often find that in the following arguments on message boards we are getting carried away and sucked into discussions that have very little relevance for taking ...

There is pretty little to complain about this camera and the image quality speaks for itself. The lens is almost perfect with no or little CA/purple fringing. It is a slight wave distortion that can be seen if shooting some straight lines, but this can be fixed in post (LR and C1 have presets). High ISO is one of the best I have seen in any camera I have owned and is pretty much clean up to ISO6400 so shooting with the full Auto ISO range (200 to 6400) is absolutely no problem at all. The AF ...

I just spend the first weekend with the x100s. Well, mixed emotions actually. Especially the back buttons are embarassingly fiddly, but produces amazing OOC images. Pros: (1) Classic, cool design (2) High built quality (except the back buttons) (3) Amazine out-of-camera images both JPEG and RAW (4) Very compact Cons: (1) Almost too small, especially the lens is small to have both ...

My Fuji X100s after two weeks of use, shown with Fuji LC-X100s case (yes, it's better than the old case, it has a battery door flap) and strap, as well as Match Technical "bop" black shutter button. Soooo... I've had this thing for two weeks now - got it on Friday April 19th, and today is Friday May 5th. I've clicked the shutter over 1000 times now, so I guess that makes me a frickin' expert, right? Right. If you want to pixel-peep, like a miserable little measle, (or just to get detailed ...

With the right expectations, the X100S is a superb camera. The image quality is topnotch up to at least ISO 6400, the handling is intuitive (I hardly need the manual), operation (startup time, shutter lag, responsiveness of buttons) is very good, and last but not least, the cam looks awesome. The price is okay considering the handling, build, and image quality. It's a shame, though, that the accessories, which really complete this camera (lens hood, leather case), are shockingly expensive. ...
