Fuji X100S Review - Is it worth to upgrade from the classic X100? | PhotosDeLux

Fuji X100S Review - Is it worth to upgrade from the classic X100? | PhotosDeLux | Fuji X System | Scoop.it


After a 2 year production cycle, Fujifilm upgraded the revolutionary X100 and introduced the X100S. The X100 was the reason I bought my first digital Fuji camera a little over 2 years ago and it has turned me into a loyal customer, also buying the X10 and X-Pro 1. The X100 was also the first camera that I preordered without ever holding it in my hands or reading a single review (there were no reviews at the time I preordered). But now the question for me and countless other classic X100 photographers was: Should I upgrade to the X100S? Fujifilm introduced the revolutionary hybrid viewfinder with the X100 and gave the camera an external control layout of a classic film camera with aperture, shutter time and exposure compensation that can be controlled blindfolded with your finger tips.

But the X100 was not without flaws. While the image quality was stunningly wonderful even in Firmware 1.0, some of the ergonomics were... hmmm... let's say "challenging".

The original FW was lacking some streamlining in the menu and the minimum focus distance before having to switch to Macro mode was almost a deal breaker for me. Especially since it requited the photographer to push buttons 3 times before the Macro mode was activated or deactivated.
But most of these issues were fixed with continuous FW updates and the AF plus MF quality and speed was improved over time, too........

Fuji X100S Review | Kevin Mullins

Fuji X100S Review | Kevin Mullins | Fuji X System | Scoop.it

So, I’ve now spent a week or so with the new offering from Fujifilm and here is my little Fuji X100S Review. This won’t be a pixel-peeping technical breakdown.  There are loads of those across the internet.  I’m approaching this as a professional, using the camera and hopefully from my experiences you can decide if the X100S is a camera you would be interested in buying.  Needless to say, the important stuff is that the Fuji X100S is a new 16-megapixel X-Trans CMOS II image sensor and a new EXR processor paired up with the same 23mm f/2 lens as the X100 had.  A winning combination? Now, when I was a little bitty teeny boy I had a Canon AE-1 program camera.  I loved everything about that camera from it’s weight, it’s size, it’s form factor, it’s tactile feeling and it’s resultant images (OK, I was pretty poor with film, so let’s not bring image quality into the equation here).

This was probably something like the mid to late eighties.  I had and Amstrad CPC464 computer and a Chopper bike rusting in the garage.  I used to watch films hired from the shop on a massive Betamax video recorder and I really liked a girl down the road called Rachael and playing rugby. I no longer have the Amstrad, nor the bike, nor the video recorder.  Rachael became a Buddhist and I’m now married to Gemma.  I do still have my AE-1 though.  It sits on my shelf in my office. Fast forward to 2010 and I’m a professional wedding photographer.  Crazy how the world shifts and tilts and we find ourselves doing things we just never thought we would be.  I was shooting weddings in a documentary approach and still do.  I was carrying a Canon 5D and a Canon 1 Series body with me to each wedding.  My back wasn’t happy but to be fair, I did love those cameras and they were (and remain so) very capable and have a place in the “fond” section of my memory. I wanted a camera that was small, felt good, worked well, produced great images and a camera that I felt had a spirit about it.  Like my AE-1 did.  I wasn’t getting that with my DSLRs, even though they were very able machines,  I wanted something to bring enjoyment back into photography for me. I recall seeing some adverts for this small form camera from Fujifilm called an X100.  I read reviews in the press from it’s debut showing over at Photokina and was instantly mesmerised.  Why?  Because it reminded me so much of my beloved AE-1. I wanted one, and I got one and I loved it.  I genuinely did.  It came with me to some weddings and we became very good friends. As we all know, the AF system in the first batch of original X100′s (that’s plural X100, not an X100s!!!!  – phew) was limiting, especially in low light, but to a certain extent Fujifilm diligently worked with users to produce a series of firmware updates for the X100 which made it a much more viable camera.  The X100 was much loved by me, and many, but a little bit like a politician it was very much subjective. Wooooosh….. fast forward again to 2013 and we have a new iteration, called the Fujifilm X100S.   An update in every sense bar the look and feel (which is, actually updated slightly).

Fuji X100s Review | Robin Schimko

Fuji X100s Review | Robin Schimko | Fuji X System | Scoop.it


Since the original X100 was announced back in 2010 I was eager to get one. That thing is looking damn sexy and at that time it was unique and the only company that makes something similar is the one with the red dot. But as you might know, they are freaking expensive and so are their lenses. And of course the lack of autofocus is something I don’t want to deal with every day. Don’t get me wrong I am used to manual focus on my DSLR rig and I’m loving it. But sometimes it can be really convenient to let your camera doing the work. So when Fuji came up with a rangefinder styled body but with all the features of a modern camera I was completely sold. My plan was to take the x100 with me on a trip to Korea, but unfortunately it took six months till the x100 hit the shelves. Finally I couldn’t get one before my trip so I ended up bringing the DSLR rig. A couple of months later I had the opportunity to try out the x100 and I was somewhat disappointed. The AF felt a little sluggish and the camera wasn’t as responsive as I expected, so I decided to wait till something else is in the pipeline. Now two years later Fuji came up with the x100 replacement and a bunch of improvements as well as a new sensor, an updated version of the one you can find in their x-mount cameras. Early previews mentioned that the camera feels much more responsive and the autofocus is a big step ahead over the original x100. The x100s seemed to be the camera I was looking for and I wanted to give it a try and preordered shortly after the announcement. (Now) two weeks ago the camera arrived and I was really excited about it, but that weekend the weather was really bad and I had no chance to go out and shoot. That was frustrating and when you think it can’t get any worse it actually does. So after taking some indoor shots I noticed that some pictures look really grainy and after checking the EXIF data I realized that my brand new x100s was already broken. In aperture priority the camera sometimes switched automatically into manual mode without me hitting any button. For example the camera chose 1/4000 instead of maybe 1/50 while pushing the ISO up to 6400. A couple of days later I talked to my dealer and he told me that he would get another camera within one week. And now here it is and it works just fine…

Fuji X100S Review @ Patrick Donnelly Photography

Fuji X100S Review @ Patrick Donnelly Photography | Fuji X System | Scoop.it

Over the last couple of weeks I was lucky enough to be given the opportunity to trial the Fuji X100S by the generous people at www.very.co.uk.

 

As consumers we are far too used to seeing popular products ‘updated’ only to see all of the charms of the original sucked out with cost saving replacements, and more mainstream incentives which have quite often shot far from the target audience the original appealed to. This is most likely one of the main reasons for the recent re-emergence in the popularity of film cameras in the industry, with the light leaks, soft focus and film imperfections that once frustrated photographers actually becoming desirable vintage effects, to the extreme extent where there are several apps and lightroom presets designed to add these ‘flaws’ to your crystal clear digital images.

 

As an X100 owner I was very keen to test the X100S. To help you understand why I bought the X100 I will give you a bit of an insight into my mind-set at the time. My girlfriend and I had decided to travel to Amsterdam to celebrate New Year and as the day approached I was frustrated to find that with my hand-luggage only allowance I would not have space for my 5Dmkiii. I spent a fantastic weekend in a beautiful city, frustrated by only being able to take pictures on my iPhone.

Olympus OM-D E-M5 vs Fujifilm X100s: so similar yet so different!

Olympus OM-D E-M5 vs Fujifilm X100s: so similar yet so different! | Fuji X System | Scoop.it

We inaugurate the comparison section of our site with two of the most interesting mirrorless cameras available to date: the Olympus OM-D E-M5, the flagship of the Olympus Micro Four Thirds line, and the new Fujifilm X100s.

 

But what is the purpose of comparing two cameras?

 

Well, for us, it is a way of pointing out not only the strengths and weaknesses of each model, but it is also an occasion to summarize our personal experiences with them. It is a place where we can give you advice about the style of photography that best suits these cameras, while helping you answer that tricky question: which model is best for me?

You won’t find scientific comparisons but rather our personal experience with each camera based on a real-world usage. For more information about the cameras, you can check out our reviews and galleries across the site (relevant links are mentioned throughout the article).

But that is not all: it isn’t just about us. If you’ve had the chance to use both of these cameras and want to share your opinion about them, feel free to leave a comment or even write to us at info@bestmirrorlesscamerareviews.com. We would love to hear your two cents!

X100S + WCL-X100 = Great | Simon Goldsworthy

X100S + WCL-X100 = Great  | Simon Goldsworthy | Fuji X System | Scoop.it

 

Optically fantastic provided you correct the distortion.  I’m talking about the WCL-X100 wide angle converter which converts the X100 23mm lens to a 19mm lens (which means it becomes a 28mm equivalent). The build quality of this converter is excellent. It just feels like a solid hunk of metal and glass, with construction matching the X100/X100S body/lens. As the WCL-X100 simply screws into the front of the X100/X100S lens, the focus and aperture rings are the ones on the “normal” lens. The WCL-X100 has no markings on it at all. It accepts 49mm filters, the same as the official Fujifilm filter adaptor, so the official lens hood can be used on the conversion lens. Optically, with one exception, this converter is very good. CA and fringing are almost non-existent. There is a little vignetting wide open that disappears as you stop it down. In terms of sharpness, it’s pretty similar to the X100/S lens – average at F2 but becoming excellent past F4. Unfortunately there is some barrel distortion which you can correct in camera for jpegs, but a profile is required for RAW files. I would like to say thank you to “Hector” who uploaded a lens profile for this lens to Adobe Lens Profile Downloader. It seems to work well enough. I realise many of these shots need keystone correction, but in the absence of capture one support there is not a lot I can do. Autofocus speed seems to be very quick with the adaptor fitted. By way of an aside (and nothing really to do with the WCL-X100), I tried switching to continuous autofocus to see if that speeded up AF. It does, AF on the X100S is actually as fast as the E-M5 (no mean feet) in good light. Yes and no. The 28mm focal length is more challenging for street photography but does give you that little bit more to play with. I do prefer 35, but there are times when 28 is a definite preference. This is a really nice, well built piece of kit that is definitely worth getting if you plan to travel with your X100/S. The only downside (for me) is that it is relatively expensive and you need to tell the camera it is fitted.

A Journey Through Venice: The Fuji X100s Review | MirrorLessons

A Journey Through Venice: The Fuji X100s Review | MirrorLessons | Fuji X System | Scoop.it


What I like about the Fuji X100s

 

- Wonderful design, excellent build quality

- The aperture ring on the lens, the shutter speed dial like old film cameras

- The hybrid viewfinder

- Amazing quality of the RAW files

- Beautiful colour rendition, especially with the Astia Film Simlation mode

- Great dynamic range

- Tiny, lightweight, quiet, it is a perfect tool for street photography

What I don’t like about the Fuji X100s

 

- Autofocus still needs some improvements

- Poor battery life. I highly recommend buying a second battery if you plan to be out all day.

- Video mode only automatic, quality could be better given the great X100s sensor;

- The lens isn’t extremely sharp at f/2 (but is still usable) and has some distortion. I had hoped that Fuji would have improved on it.

 

 

Despite a few weak points, I really enjoyed using the X100s and it is definitely a camera that I will bring with me for day-to-day photography. It is fast, silent and discreet, and you can even choose to silence the shutter button. No one will notice you when you use it. However, at the same time, it will never become my main camera system. The reason is probably personal, but if I were to visit a place for the first time, I would probably miss a wide angle lens and a medium telephoto lens as I like to diversify my shots and represent a place from different angles and perspectives.

I liked shooting with it in Venice as I had already visited the city. Moreover, thanks to the Fuji X100s’ fixed lens, I was able to concentrate on one single type of photography (street photography), and this proved to be a very good exercise. As I said before, it is a niche camera – you have to know why you are buying it and for what you intend to use it. If street photography isn’t your genre of choice, the x100s probably isn’t the best camera for you. I have to admit that I am not an avid street shooter, and sometimes all I wanted was to be closer to my subject (I did some cropping in a few pictures). The RAF (Fuji RAW) files are another aspect that really impressed me. The dynamic range is huge and the amount of detail you can recover in both the shadows and highlights is stunning. I rarely work with such good RAW files coming from a camera like this one. You can really see the quality of the X-Trans sensor. High ISO images have little noise and an overall filmic “look” that is quite pleasant to the eye.
