Nice camera

photo enthusiast, B&H Photo
3 January 2014
  • Excerpt: I bought this camera for street/family photography. I love the optical and electronic viewfinder. Jpeg images out of the camera are very good. In fact, I would say that the white balance in auto mode is even better than 5D Mark III's white balance in auto mode. I liked most features of this camera. However, I returned it because the viewfinder is too small for me. I found myself moving my eyes around to capture the peripherals of the viewfinder.
  • Pros: Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Short Battery Life, Viewfinder Too Small

Nice little camera, just not for me

  • Excerpt: I wanted to get myself a smaller camera to keep on me for more personal, as-it-happens images. The X100s produces beautiful images. But more often than not the auto focus fails (it will oftentimes hunt and hunt and hunt for focus in enough light that AF shouldn't be an issue) and manually focusing this camera is just kind of a pain.
  • Pros: Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Almost too small, Awkward To Adjust Control, Short Battery Life, Terribly Slow Auto Focus, Viewfinder not accurate

A mixed reaction

  • Excerpt: I purchased the camera for travel purposes, in lieu of always carrying my Canon 50D. I like the size of the camera and am mostly satisfied with the quality of the pictures. I have compared them with my DSLR & do not think they are of as good quality. The learning curve has been steep and difficult. The manual was of some help, but I would not have been as far along as I am without a lot of help on You Tube.
  • Pros: Fast Shutter Speed, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Complicated Controls

Fuji, once again, almost got it right

  • Summary: What do it want a camera to do: exactly what I tell it to do. I don't want a point and shoot. Today's ever escalating arms race of shoving more and more bandaid technologies into tiny cameras allowing the user to do nothing more than push a button is really frustrating. I know how to take photographs and I just want a camera that will not get between me and the image I want to capture. In film days I always used small fully manual SLR's.

not great, def not a good street camera

18 September 2013
  • Excerpt: i did a lot of research before purchasing, and tried it extensively for a month. nice build and design, though the dial on the back is pretty flimsy/plastic. the overall retro look and feel work well, like having a direct aperture control on the lens, exposure comp dial, and the viewfinder is cool.
  • Cons: Lag / Shutter Delay, Poor in Low Light, Short Battery Life

Didn't check my boxes

3 May 2013
  • Excerpt: In summary, I sent the X100s back after a few weeks. I felt sad. I really wanted to like this camera, but we just didn't bond. Let me first begin by pointing out three things about the context of the test this camera took: 1) I shoot mostly medium and large format film, so that kind of pegs the standard against which I personally compare image quality 2) This camera was intended as a second quick shooter I could use on family shots and just generally to have around for...

Great camera, but not perfect

Ben, Amazon
1 May 2013
  • Summary: Currently Fuji x100s is my main camera, I've used it for 1 month and even ordered some prints. I sold Olympus OM-D E-M5 because I have easier time with Fuji x100s skin tones and color. Also low light photos and video is better in x100s. I rated this camera three stars because of my cons. If this camera was cheaper, this would have been a 4 star camera. So I read Zack Arias review on Fuji x100s and he says that not even once he wish he had a different camera with him.

Strange Focus System

Shutterbug "Shutterbug", Amazon
9 December 2012
  • Summary: I've Been a Photographer for 65 years and this is the first camera I have had to learn "Focus" . What a shame. This is a very nice camera, otherwise. My first "Street" camera was a Leica M2, 35mm lens; loved that camera. My reason for the purchase of the Fujifilm X100 was the size and "rangefinder" viewing. I know Leica, and this is no Leica !. However, this is a camera you have to wrap your brain around to fully exploit it's features.

Shutter lag undermines otherwise fine camera.

blueberryhill33, Ebay

  • Summary: Absolutely love the look and feel. However, I am disappointed with the camera. First, the lens is a little too wide angle for street shooting. It takes in so much that you have to maneuver around to compose without including unwanted elements. I could live with this. The big disappointment is the shutter lag. I do a lot of street shooting, and what I see is not what I get because the lag time, maybe a quarter of a second, causes me to miss the moment.
