Fuji X100T - My First Impressions | Chris Harnish

Fuji X100T - My First Impressions | Chris Harnish | Book Covers | Scoop.it

The camera I have been waiting for has finally arrived in my hands. The Fuji X100T was announced back in September as the successor to the much acclaimed X100S model. It was not a huge update to the camera. But, as for myself, I felt it worth waiting a couple months for the release to get some of the added new features. Released just last week, I finally got to play with this just a little today. Back in September, I rented the X100S for a trip to Chicago and fell in love with the camera. I knew right away that this was the kind of camera that I have been looking quite a while for. Being able to carry only a small fixed lens camera while walking the streets of Chicago was quite freeing and I even left most of my DSLR gear at home while on the trip. This is just a quick post to go over some of my initial impressions from holding and using the camera briefly just today......

Review of the Fujifilm X100T for Street Photography | Eric Kim

Review of the Fujifilm X100T for Street Photography | Eric Kim | Book Covers | Scoop.it

It is a beautiful Sunday here in Dubai, and it is my day off “work”. I arrived last Wednesday from London after 2 weeks of teaching workshops, and I ended up doing a few workshops for Gulf Photo Plus (a photo organization in Dubai). I had a great time teaching the workshops here in Dubai, and also ended up shooting a lot of personal photos for myself (around 5–6 rolls of medium-format Kodak Portra 400 on my Hasselblad and a Mamiya 7 I borrowed from my friends Imraan and Mo. Anyways, I also met the Fujifilm representative (Yuta-san) and he gifted me a Fujifilm X100T (no strings attached). Fujifilm was generous enough to sponsor my 2 workshops here (a 1-day Conquer your Fear of Shooting Street Photography course, and a 3-day intensive Intermediate/Advanced Street Photography Workshop focused on projects). They let the students play with a bunch of X-T1’s, X100T’s, and lenses.....
