Fuji X100S promo video with Zack Arias

Hi, if you have a few minutes check out the Fuji promo video with Zack Arias using the camera in Istanbul, just youtube it. He's very enthusiastic about the camera and Istanbul as a place to visit. Both look fantastic!

I find his photos to be superb and are a good advert for Fuji.

Cheers Jon

Uh, where can I find the video?? And interesting that his review http://zackarias.com/for-photographers/gear-gadgets/fuji-x100s-review-a-camera-walks-into-a-bar/ ("And that folks… is why I say Fuji is the new Leica and the x100s is the greatest camera I’ve ever owned.") doesn't admit to any commercial relationship with Fuji...

"While Fuji has hired me to shoot with their camera, I have not signed a contract with them nor have I signed an NDA. I have no idea. When I left Istanbul my job with them was done. They’re not paying for this review. But, yes. I got paid to shoot with the x100s. So, take that however you want. I know for some of you that paints me as a sideshow salesman. That’s fine. I get that. I’m leery of paid spokespeople as well."

Did you actually read it?

Yes I did, in fact I read it carefully because it was part of the reason I bought a X100S.  I think the reason I forgot his review contained this disclaimer is that I didn't expect "Fuji has hired me to shoot with their camera" actually meant "Fuji has hired me to star in a 10 minute promo video extolling the virtues of the X100S."

He did his job very well. Together with having already read the manual, I feel I am ready to start shooting as soon as one becomes available.

I did think it rather funnt him declaring this to be the end of dslr while having an interchangeable lens camera sitting on the table.

That was an X-Pro 1, so not a DSLR.

I think he was meaning from a 'small and portable point of view'.
