Thoughts from a new Fuji user
21

Hello, I just picked up a used X100F after being a MFT turned Sony FE user. I wanted a pocketable camera, and have always admired from afar the gorgeous pictures and film simulations this and other fuji cameras can produce. I am a fan to say the least, and currently fighting my urges to buy into the Fuji ILC system. I find myself taking this camera everywhere, and although I own more expensive and technically superior gear, I keep coming back to this little powerhouse because of how it "speaks" to me, encourages a new way of seeing the world, and frankly, makes me fall in love with photography again and again. Also, the TTL flash on a point and shoot, especially one this capable, is underrated. Some photos taken while in quarantine:

The x100 series is what started my expensive decline deep into the X-Series system. Of all the bodies and lenses I own, the x100s have been my go-to and always with me camera. Welcome to the X-World!

Hooray! I've used every iteration up to F. My go to camera for almost every situation. Fun, versatile, grab n go, and very pleasing files. Hell i even like the render of the apparently not good enough lens. I hope you shoot it, shoot it, then shoot it some more!

you know how companies like to advertise 'lifestyles' - like you buy this jeep and suddenly you are transformed from a cubicle bound accountant to a rugged adventurer?

well the x100 series actually DELIVERS on that promise. I take mine everywhere. it's in my vehicle (jeep!) when i'm riding through the country, so i can bother folks' cows. I take it hiking. I take it to concerts, bars, family birthdays, weddings, to the beach (bother people fishing), vacations, do a lot of street photography, have it in my bag ready to whip out at the airport and bother people there too, requisite petraits, credible macro to impress my friends, annoying food photography (of course), it's on me when i'm taking my walk through the campus of the glorious univ town i live in and shoot the campus in full bloom (knowhutimean?) It can do pretty much anything within reason.

It really is a lifestyle product. Look out for the F. It's cute as hell but packs a punch. And if you weren't cool already, well consider yourself pimped. Now about that sony...

hanging with family

prowling the streets

riding around looking for trouble

requisite petraits

prowling the streets

try getting a bigger camera in most music venues

waxahatchee is a really cool band. up close and personal with x100f.

this is the ATL airport and i'm ready to annoy fellow travelers

great for hiking and not bad for limited landscape applications

impress your friends with macro photography.

this is the tip of the iceberg when it comes to me bothering fisherfolks

i could do this all day but im probably already in trouble with Jerry. But I promise if you let it the x100 camera can change your life. Oh and by the look of your photos i can see you've already got the hang of it. Keep em coming.

PS I own a Leica Q as well. It's a great camera. I keep telling myself I'm going to use it more but I always seem to want to take the x100 instead. That's saying something!

Hey, I think you have a good eye, and the sort-of-tactile Fujifilm interface promotes that. I don’t have an X100, but I think the E2 with the 27 is similar in feel. I love it, but I also love my (gradually disintegrating) T1, for its bigger EVF. To me, that’s the divide, better EVFs in the T* and H1 compared to veryting else, smaller size and (to me) better form in the 100, Pro, and E series. T*0, T*00 , and A* have great compactness, but EVF is too small or absent, a nonstarter for me.

Yup... deep doo doo, that’s for sure (can I say that?).  One too many attachments.
