Fujifilm X100S Review

thinkdigit.com
25 April 2013
  • Summary: The Fujifilm X100 was a redefining camera for the point and shoot segment, but sadly, it shipped with many flaws. However, the X100s feels like a camera made by a company that listens to its customers. Not only does the new camera inherit no flaws from the X100, but it also brings with it a set of new features that are sure to win many over. But the price on the X100S can be a deterrent for a few along with its fixed focal length lens.
  • Pros: Speedy startup and AF times, Excellent image quality even at high ISO, Q button for quick access to all important features
  • Cons: Slightly pricey, Lens cap is easy to lose, Fixed focal length lens might not be for everyone

  • Summary: The Fujifilm X100S is a hugely likable, very capable camera with some useful tricks up its sleeve. Almost all of the bugs from the X100 have been ironed out, and image quality from its 16MP X-Trans sensor is excellent.
  • Pros: Excellent JPEG image quality - little need to shoot Raw except to correct WB, Very sharp 23mm (35mm equiv.) F2 lens, Fast and responsive when shooting (with decent SD card), Speedy and generally accurate hybrid AF (but still slower than the best M43 CDAF systems), Versatile manual focus mode with effective focus aids (peaking and digital split image), Excellent, highly versatile hybrid viewfinder, Logical and effective ergonomics, Q menu for easy access to key shootin...
  • Cons: AF can still get confused occasionally even in bright conditions, Histogram does nothing useful in manual mode (when it would be most useful if it worked), No face-detection AF, Rear LCD somewhat prone to glare in bright light (use viewfinder instead), EVF switch can be fooled when sun is behind or to one side (occasionally refuses to switch off LCD), Rear jog switch under-utilized (should be customizable), Rear control dial small and fiddly - lacks clear detents, Onl...

  • 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.
  • 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.

  • 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. With an APS-C sensor behind a superb 23mm F/2 Fujinon lens, the Fuji Finepix X100 delivers on image quality like no other fixed-lens camera.
  • 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, Inconspicuous analog camera look, Excellent EVF clarity, Great LCD visibility, Excellent build quality
  • 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, No direct Self-Timer access, Poor camera grip

Fujifilm FinePix X100

  • Excerpt: Underneath the sweet ’70s styling and “analog” controls, the Fujifilm FinePix X100 is possibly the most advanced rangefinder-style camera ever (yes, we know about the Leica M9), though not the most rugged. Look through the eyepiece and you’ll see the best of old and new: a digital heads-up display superimposed over a classic glass viewfinder.

  • 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 straightforward traditional control layout (aperture ring, shutter speed and EC dials), Ground-breaking hybrid viewfinder works extremely well - large, bright and clear, with detailed expos...
  • 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), Autofocus not quite as fast and accurate as the best mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras, 'Focus by wire' manual focus slow and unresponsive (but accurate), No face detection...

Fujifilm FinePix X100 Review

Digital Camera Review
6 June 2011
  • Summary: The Fujifilm X100 is here, offering DSLR-like image quality and noise performance in a decidedly un-DSLR-like package. The classic rangefinder look is smart and relatively compact, at least compared to the typical DSLR. Materials, fit and finish are quite good. The camera packs some interesting touches, like the hybrid viewfinder arrangement, and a wide range of settings and image adjustment tools set this camera up to appeal to serious shooters who aren't looking to...
  • Pros: Very good image quality and color fidelity, Very good high ISO noise performance, Good shutter lag, Good feature set for serious shooters, Useful viewfinder
  • Cons: Some imprecise controls, Slow write times, AF times average to a bit slow, Cost
