Excerpt: I am a Fujifilm fan. I have an X E-1, an X T-1 and now an X 100S. The Fuji cameras have mostly replaced my lovely but large and heavy Nikon D800E and huge professional zooms. I have been trying to find a camera that was small enough to carry with me, with a viewfinder, and with a large enough sensor to obtain images of high quality. I bought and sold a Sony RX100 and had been eyeing the X 100S. I saw it as a camera that would improve my photography.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Battery Life, Great Resolution
Excerpt: I previously owned the X100 and sold it as I wanted to get the X100S but it wasn't in stock for quite awhile. So in the mean time I was using the OM-D M1 which is a great camera, which I also use for street and travel. However when the X100S became available again I picked one up. My attraction to the X100S is that it's all there in a nice compact package with the focal length I want for street photography. It's not perfect, but it does what I need it to do.
Excerpt: I am a full time wedding photographer, and I bought this camera for my husband, who is my second shooter on some weddings, and has a ton of experience from back in the film days. He is now shooting every day, partly because he can take this with him everywhere. He loves it, and especially using the focus peaking feature when manually focusing. On the occasion that I've been able to play with it, I've enjoyed it very much. It's extremely capable considering it's size.
Pros: Easy to Use, Focus Peaking, Great image quality, Great Resolution, Small / Compact
Excerpt: This camera is great on paper and I can't complain about the quality of the files that it produces. They look great! The form factor of the camera and offerings don't fit my needs though. I shoot mostly portraits and thought that I might be able to make this work, but realized quickly that it just doesn't work for portraits. I need the ability to change focal lengths. I also do timelapse for fun on the side and this camera offers next to nothing in that area.
Excerpt: It is a really nice camera to carry around all day, thats why I bought it, but I thought auto focus was faster, it really can not replace my canon DSLR for more serious work. The Image quality is amazing and everything but the accesse to button, the speed with witch you can take a photo in a pro DSLR is still way beyond this camera, but for relaxed street photography or carry around with excelente quality this is great.
Pros: Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
Excerpt: I have used various digital cameras over the years (mainly Sony Cybershots & Canon S90) but finally wanted to move up to the next level. I spent a lot of time reading reviews of (mainly) the Sony R100X and this one, and pondered about the Leica T (in previews). I finally went to the NYC B&H store and the Fuji chap convinced me (though the Sony was tempting).
Excerpt: Used as an everyday walk around camera, in place of a bulky DSLR. Works great, autofocus is a bit slow and wish the manual focus ring was better, but otherwise a solid walk around camera. Only a few instances where a DSLR was desired over this.
Pros: Good Battery Life, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
Summary: I bought this camera so I didn't have to lug around a DSLR all the time. It is great looking, light weight, very good quality. If you are used to using a film camera, you will be right at home with the dials on the top and the fixed lens. The menus take awhile to get used to, be sure you update with the latest software, it is much more user friendly. The optical/electronic viewfinder is superb, the fill flash is amazing.
Excerpt: After using Canon T1, T4, 70D, i think this camera is a good walk around camera esp if you like street photography. However, the Auto focus is slow comparing my Canon DSLR, and that bother me a lot. other than this, i like this camera alot. the fix lens is not bad at all because now i learn to plan the position to capture what i want.
Pros: Good in Low Light, Small / Compact
Cons: Lag / Shutter Delay, Limited Zoom, Short Battery Life
