Fuji X100

  • Summary: Be sure to use a UV filter over the lens . The non-recessed lens of the X100 is highly vulnerable to damage without one. Use a multicoated filter, otherwise the X100 is susceptible to mirror-image ghosts when pointed straight into light sources.

Fuji Finepix X100

29 September 2011
  • Summary: The Fuji Finepix X100 is a uniquely intriguing camera. Its inconspicuous analog-camera look is alluring for its quantity of buttons and dials, promising efficiency while shooting. A one-of-a-kind hybrid viewfinder lets it have an EVF and an optical-tunnel viewfinder in the same place.
  • Pros: Superb image quality in compact size, Extremely low noise, Very good sharpness from wide-open, Flexible rendition of colors and tones, Bright lens with F/2 maximum aperture, Real aperture ring, Leaf-Shutter allows High-Speed-Sync, Built-In 3-Stop ND Filter, Plenty of external controls, Inconspicu...
  • Cons: Sluggish autofocus system, Slow manual focus ring, Severe yellow cast under tungsten lighting, Live-Histogram shows metered exposure, Previews metered exposure, not actual, Clear but pointless OVF, Two dials needed per exposure parameter, No AE-L with MF, Illogical and under-used button functions...

25 September 2011
  • Summary: If you have the bucks and you want the best photo quality possible, the Fujifilm FinePix X100 delivers. But definitely try before you buy to make sure the focusing systems won't make you crazy.
  • Pros: Thanks to great photo quality, a clever hybrid viewfinder, and a cool, retro design, there's a lot to like about the Fujifilm FinePix X100 .
  • Cons: Sluggish performance, especially for such a high-priced camera, and a frustrating navigation control make shooting with the camera a lot less fluid than it should be.

Fuji X100 Digital Camera Review

The Gadgeteer
15 August 2011
  • Excerpt: Digital cameras are great.  They’re convenient, fun, and are becoming idiot-proof.  Then the Fuji X100 came into my life and I realized just how lazy and dependent on technology I’ve been when taking snapshots.  How did this happen? I have a love-hate thing with digital cameras.
  • Pros: + Looks great, + Feels great, + Smaller than a full-size digital SLR
  • Cons: - More expensive than your ordinary digital camera, - No zoom; can't change lens, - If you want a petite camera, look elsewhere, - No auto-intelligent-preprogrammed-whizbang features, - If you take a lousy picture, you only have yourself to blame

Fujifilm X100 Digital Camera Review

Buy-n-Shoot.com
5 August 2011
  • Conclusion: The X100 is a truly pioneering camera that has brought retro styling back to market in a big way. Though retro styling aside the real beauty of the X100 is that it offers the market a relatively inexpensive rangefinder camera that delivers incredible image quality from a large APS CMOS sensor.

DP Review
16 July 2011
  • Summary: The X100 combines excellent image quality, solid build and a superb viewfinder with somewhat sluggish and quirky operation. It's been much improved by multiple firmware updates since its initial incarnation, and despite its flaws, is now a very likeable camera indeed.
  • Pros: Excellent sensor offering superb image quality even at high ISO settings, High quality lens with excellent cross-frame sharpness, and minimal distortion and chromatic aberration (although see Cons below), Exceptional build quality - extremely solid, yet not too heavy, Intuitive and straightforwar...
  • Cons: Camera locks-up certain key functions for several seconds while writing to card (including ISO), Requires fastest possible SD cards to give tolerable write speeds when shooting raw, Several key features buried deep in the menus (Auto ISO configuration, ND filter, flash exposure compensation), Aut...
