I’ve had the Fuji X100S for a couple of months now.  You can see my x100s initial thoughts, and a fuller X100S review on this site if you wish.

I’m posting a few more images today and talking a bit about the last couple of months that I’ve spent with the new x-trans camera from Fuji.  In a nutshell, my initial thoughts remain totally positive.  It is a wonderful camera for many many reasons.....

X100S Review ~ Summary

So there you have it.  I said it wouldn’t be technical – there are plenty of technical reviews out there.  This X100S Review was meant to be an update to my initial X100S review also found on this site.  It’s a real world review and in a nutshell the Fuji X100S is, in my opinion, a camera with soul that produces outstanding images.  You need to use it, live with it, work with it and then reap the rewards of it.

Tempest Fugit | Fuji X100 | Patrick La Roque | fuji x100 | Scoop.it


I've spent a few hours with friends I haven't seen in decades. The air hangs thick as freshly poured asphalt — Montreal can get as hot as it can be cold. I walk back to the car amidst throngs of tourists, under an impending storm, the sky flickering and flashing nervously, a low menacing rumble in the distance. I barely make it. I pick up the camera and aim haphazardly at the world outside my bubble — a hand on the wheel, an eye on the screen....

Infrared Photography with the Fujifilm X100S | Liverpool Photographer

Infrared Photography with the Fujifilm X100S | Liverpool Photographer | fuji x100 | Scoop.it


Last year, I took a fancy to infrared photography with the Fujifilm X100 and Hoya IR filter.  Whilst the results from this combination provided me with great results, I found a tripod to be a vital piece of equipment whenever I used it due to the lengthy exposures required.  The X100 performed well at high ISOs, but not so great when it came to capturing landscapes in infrared where there tends to be more scrutiny on details. With the release of the X100S and its enhanced high ISO performance offering the possibility of going tripod-less whilst using an IR filter, I set off for a week away in the English countryside.  I wasn’t disappointed with the results from the camera. The combination of a higher resolution 16MP X-Trans sensor for more detail, the improved high ISO performance for less noise, and unintrusive leaf shutter meant I was able to hand-hold the X100S at shutter speeds as slow as 1/10 of a second and still get sharp images with bags of detail even at ISO 3200 or even 6400.....

An expensive option to photograph IR, but hey, why work all our lives if not to spend on our seeing our world in new ways

William Lee's comment, June 13, 2013 5:07 PM
You're not wrong about it being expensive! However, I didn't get the X100S purely as an IR camera rather it's my main non-work camera and I wanted to be able to use it when the light is too harsh for my non-IR tastes. Adding a relatively cheap IR filter seemed to be a good way to achieve this and it opened up a whole new photographic world for me :)

FUJIFILM X100s – The Perfect Travel Camera – 2 Weeks in Japan | Danielle Vitarbo

FUJIFILM X100s – The Perfect Travel Camera – 2 Weeks in Japan | Danielle Vitarbo | fuji x100 | Scoop.it

I haven’t been back to Japan in over 7 years so when I was given the opportunity to go again, I didn’t hesitate. It was time to put my X100s to the test and see what it could do in the busy streets of Tokyo. I’m not much of a street photographer, mostly because I’m shy and don’t wanna seem creepy, but if i see a shot, I’m more than willing to suck it up and go for it. All photos were taken with the fujifilm X100s, uploaded onto my Ipad 2, edited on Snapseed, and presented here. There was something really fulfilling about spending the afternoon taking photos with a camera that excites me as much as the fujifilm x100s does, and then spending the evening in a coffee shop uploading and editing the photos. It’s something that really inspired me and I truly enjoyed the entire experience. The Fujifilm x100s is a gorgeous camera. It’s physically beautiful and the results are even better. This camera has the “it” factor. There’s just something about it that just works for a lot of fuji users. The simplicity of it is just right. All the controls are at my fingertips which I absolutely love. This camera makes me want to take photos. Unlike my DSLR which sits on a shelf until its time for a gig, the x100s makes me want to be a better photographer. It inspires me to get out there and shoot some damn photos! It was an absolute joy to use during my two week stay in Japan. Having travelled all across Europe with my DSLR and lenses, this was such a welcomed change in terms of size, weight, and simplicity.....

Fuji x100s Follow Up Review :: Life Without DSLRs | Zack Arias

Fuji x100s Follow Up Review :: Life Without DSLRs | Zack Arias | fuji x100 | Scoop.it


I have been DSLR free for about two months and all is well. During the past two months I’ve been to Cuba, New York (x2), and Arizona. I feel I have hit just about every type, and kind, of job I do and my little Fujis have performed flawlessly. I really relied on them in Arizona where I was shooting for Land Rover. I shot that job with a mix of Fujis and the Phase One. Everything else has been Fuji only. I have no clue how many miles I have put on my Think Tank Airport Security roller bag. I love that bag and it has been everywhere with me for four or five years as my main camera bag. For the past two months I’ve mainly been living out of the Think Tank Airport Essentials backpack. Here’s a fully packed bag that fits under the seat in coach. I never have to worry about it getting gate checked. Packed in there is a Fuji X-Pro1, X-E1, x100s (x2), a Fuji 60, 35, 14, and the new 55-200, Kung Pao (Yongnuo) 560, an external battery pack for the Kung Pao (JJC), Fuji EF-X20 flash, Wein Safe Sync IR transmitter, an OCF Gear 5 meter Canon cord, a Rainbow Imaging intervalometer and remote release controller (for the X-E1), a Fuji M mount adapter, Macbook Air, external drive, and misc other bits and bobs. Strapped to the side is a Phottix 36″ double fold umbrella, and a one foot length of 1/2″ copper pipe with a small swivel adapter. That’s A LOT of gear in a small bag......

Shooting with the Fuji 55-200 mm | Nick Lukey

Shooting with the Fuji 55-200 mm | Nick Lukey | fuji x100 | Scoop.it


A rather big box arrived at the gallery this morning, furiously cutting through a million miles of tape and plastic air bags, lay my new lens, the 55-200 mm. It looked impressive and had a nice heft, not too heavy not too light. Quickly grabbed the X pro, locked into place nicely. Initial thoughts are very well made feels and looks good. The balance of the camera is quite even. Did the firmware upgrade, and had a play. Image quality is awesome, no I'm not bullshitting this glass is good, I would say a tad sharper than my 70-200 f2.8 vr2. Contrast is good too. The hood is nice and large and thankfully not a tulip one. The image stabilization works very well, however I think it will suck the hell out of the battery. Zoom ring is a trifle stiff but the aperture ring is a delight positive clicks. Not impressed by not having the aperture markings on the lens, this is a faux pas to me, you read the aperture in the viewfinder. I like to use it by setting it beforehand without having to raise the camera to my eye. The OVF is a waste of time so it's EVF only with this baby attached. The light this evening is fabulous so I'm off to give it a workout. Well after spending a couple of hours out in the lanes. I am more than impressed by the image quality,and all round handling of the X pro 55-200 combo. Some of my shots tonight were direct into the setting sun testing out its flare handling, very very good, one of the flaws in my Nikon 70-200 was side flare, the Fuji lens showed none of those issues at all.  That said the lens does struggle with focus, sometimes on seemingly easy to focus subjects. Macro focus is good I've never had a 300 mm focus so close. Overall I would score the lens 9/10. My lens roadmap is complete, the Nikons are being retired. Next up another body i think an XE 1, and leave the 55-200 on that.....

Fujinon 55-200mm Zoom Lens Test Run | Gene Lowinger

Fujinon 55-200mm Zoom Lens Test Run | Gene Lowinger | fuji x100 | Scoop.it


I don't usually talk about equipment stuff or technical settings on this blog, but today will be an exception. I'm off to a bluegrass festival on Sunday to meet up with some old friends from Nashville who will be performing. One of the reasons I splurged on the new Fujinon zoom lens is to be able to shoot concert and festival performances, so this is the first opportunity to put this puppy to the test in a real life situation. I spent the afternoon today in the Chelsea district an the High Line of Manhattan to test out various functions and settings, and to get comfortable with using the EVF. Most importantly to see how sharp the IQ is at the full zoom distance, and to see just how many stops the Optical Image Stabilization will buy for me. I've got a bit more learning to do with using the EVF and the image stabilization, but I'm really pleased with the results I got today. I examined all the images at 100% and was quite surprised to see that I can easily hand hold the camera at 1/60th second. In some cases down to 1/30th second, and in one example below even to 1/15th second (although in a real life situation I wouldn't go slower than 1/60th second).

All the images below were shot RAW and turned into jpegs in Lightroom with no other processing, so there's some noise in the images shot at faster shutter speeds. I'll be posting some of the individual shots in the next few days after I process them for noise and do my usual b/w conversions....

Streets of NY | Karim Haddad

Streets of NY | Karim Haddad | fuji x100 | Scoop.it


A week ago at this time, I was on a train heading to New York. I was going on business and unfortunately, I was only staying for two days. Despite being off Sunday through Tuesday, I had to rush back for a Saturday shift that none of my colleagues were willing or able to pick up. I would have loved to stay in NYC for a few more days. Although I’ve been recently trying my hand at street photography, I wouldn’t call myself a street photographer. I prefer landscapes and other subjects. Perhaps a big part of that is the city that I’ve done most of my urban photography in – Washington, DC. Anyone who knows me well will tell you that after 20+ years, I’ve had enough of this place. I’m long overdue for a change and hope to end up in a ‘new’ and colorful city very soon. The next chapter of my life likely won’t be played out in New York City. But being on the streets there with my Fuji X-Pro1 – even if only for a few rushed hours – was a real pleasure. I could see myself indulging in street photography everyday if I lived there. A marvelous stage with a plethora of various characters. I must go back soon.....

Photographs of rich and colorful Balinese Hindu culture | Jakub Puchalski | fuji x100 | Scoop.it


All pictures taken with Fujifilm X-E1 and 35mm f/1.4 lens. This set proved to be a very handy travel companion. Lightweight, simple, yet powerful. Having only one prime lens allowed me to pay attention to what I was seeing instead of what I was carrying with me. I could embrace the rich and colorful Balinese Hindu culture without getting distracted....

4 x 5 | A weekend with the Fujinon 55-200mm | Patrick La Roque

4 x 5 | A weekend with the Fujinon 55-200mm | Patrick La Roque | fuji x100 | Scoop.it

 

This weekend we fled to the country, trying to escape another dreary, drizzle/cloud fest. Don’t get me started… I sometimes feel this blog is becoming some sort of weather watch (!). I brought the X-Pro1 and X100 with me but spent most of my time shooting the Pro with the Fujinon 55–200mm zoom. In fact it pretty much stayed glued to the camera. This is still the same pre-production unit Fujifilm sent me a few weeks ago, but I feel perfectly confident in its abilities to provide great image quality so I’m not at all concerned about using it. No stories today, no semi-poetics… Just four sequences, each one comprised of five images. Four sequences to illustrate four moments. All shot with the 55–200 zoom.....
