Fujifilm X100S

Announced Jan 7, 2013 •
16 megapixels | 2.8 screen | 35 mm

Fuji cameras are great and delivery great images. Besides that, FUJI has a poor customer services. I'm having some troubles with my fuji x100s (2013) and FUJI told me they ain't providing repair parts any more for that camera. Basically, i need to throw a $1000 camera on the thrash can. I really don't know how to proceed.

This camera has great IQ. The OVF is GREAT. The EVF not so much (never used it). Colours from this camera are superb. High ISO noise is extremely low. Video is insanely bad. It's physically the most attractive camera I've ever used. It especially looks great when you add a leather case, and throw away the lens cap and keep the lens permanently protected with a filter that you can wipe down when it gets dirty. The lens has great sharpness and clarity (see below). I got rid of this camera ...

stellar images up to 6400 ISO silent leaf shutter very nice carry along camera great controls nice size will handle 95% of what I shoot only issue is AF that is not as quick as M43 interestingly-I couldn't figure out why the optical viewfinder blacked out sometimes-turns out that sometimes I wear polarized sunglasses which affects the viewfinder-thought it was defective but simply a physics thing.....

The Fuji X100S is an absolutely delightful camera to use. Photos at ISO as high as 6400 are amazing, amazing, amazing!  Even with "only" 16mp, pictures are very clear.  I saw a demo with a professional photographer where the conclusion was that the final photos were almost indistinguishable from those taken with her 24mp camera.  From my own personal experience shots taken at a reasonable ASA yield prints as large as 22" x 33" that are amazingly sharp. I was very very surprised. Iridient ...

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 ...
