Fuji x100s review - Photography Tips & Reviews | Ed Pingol

Fuji x100s review - Photography Tips & Reviews | Ed Pingol | Fuji x100s | Scoop.it

Today we are reviewing the Fuji x100s a very cool retro style compact camera that packs a punch on the inside.    The x100s also sports a 23mm (35mm equivalent)  f/2 fixed prime lens, the same as the x100. They have made quite a few improvements from its predecessor the Fuji x100, the manual focus is now very responsive and…works! and the auto focus is so much faster and accurate due to the On-sensor phase detection… I know that’s geek talk but believe me it is soooo much better.  They also moved the AF button from left side to the right top button wheel and add a “Q” button that brings up a quick menu that allows you to change common settings quickly without fumbling around in the menu.  This camera handles great in low light situations as well and for me the images were usable to ISO6400. For those of you wanting video, it has full 1080 HD video at 60fps.  The thing I love about this camera the most is that it is compact, has a cool retro look and is silent when taking photos.   It’s not bulky nor does it attract attention to you like your DSLR and big lenses but functions and controls just as good.  I also love that there is a hot shoe so that I can still use my triggers for off camera flash.  In the video we used the Cheetah CL-180 system on Cheetah Stands to produce some awesome results.  The shutter speed can go as fast as 1/4000 sec but as I said in the video, the best flash sync speed for off camera flash is 1/1000th sec to get the full flash burst.  The Fuji x100s is definitely the ultimate walk around camera at this time, I highly recommend it.....

I disagree, I think there are noticeable differences with the color black and white film modes-it depends on the colors of your subject.  However, great post on black and white and use of JPEGs.

My 'day off' between workshops with the Fuji X100s | F8 Photography Hong Kong

My 'day off' between workshops with the Fuji X100s | F8 Photography Hong Kong | Fuji x100s | Scoop.it

We have just finished the Phnom Penh workshop yesterday afternoon which was a great success.

One team member left, and two more arrived this morning to head south with us for the next workshop so we are now a merry band of 8 photographers heading down to the seaside.

Today was supposed to be a day off or ‘admin’ day….but of course none of us could resist the chance to do more shooting, so we had some prints made from the previous days shoots and took them to the temple and the Muslim village to hand them out and make use of our time shooting again.

Fuji X100S Street Photography | Brian Kraft

Fuji X100S Street Photography | Brian Kraft | Fuji x100s | Scoop.it

After receiving the new X100S from Fuji yesterday (see initial photos), I got to hit the streets of Denver today for a couple of hours. I took the camera for a little spin and it did not disappoint. I shot all these photos as jpegs files. It’s such the perfect walk around camera. Its small size and silent operation make it easy to fit in to the activity on the streets around you and discretely photograph what you want. The added functionality and performance over the X100 make it that much more of a treat to use. I am keeping an account of my findings with the new camera–its pros and cons–and will be periodically updating and adding my thoughts. Check back for that, but also be sure to check back in about a week–as my next big outing with the X100S will be to shoot an entire wedding with it.

Hmm I'm not thinking "Wow that X100S is a stellar performer" but rather "That new VSCO sure is getting a lot of attention"

A Journey Through Venice: The Fuji X100s Review | MirrorLessons

A Journey Through Venice: The Fuji X100s Review | MirrorLessons | Fuji x100s | 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.

Fuji X100S Review @ Patrick Donnelly Photography

Fuji X100S Review @ Patrick Donnelly Photography | Fuji x100s | 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.
