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: For a while now, i guess already a year or so, i have been using the x100s extensively for personal and professional work. Everything is superb of this little gem, its sensor, its noise handling, its actual handling, the looks, the viewfinder, the size and weight and ofcourse its lens. One thing a photojournalists needs perhaps more than anything is speed and eventhough the S in the name stands for speed its not speedy by all mean.
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
Excerpt: The Fuji X100S is great at rendering accurate and pleasant colors under varied lighting conditions that I am unable to get easily with my Nikon D7100 other that outdoor. Florescent, incandescent, low light, partial natural light or mixed lighting—not a problem for the X100S. Sure, I can custom the white balance on my D7100, but that takes time. The auto WB just isn't as good as the Fuji's. I could so it in post, but that takes time too.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good in Low Light, Small / Compact
Excerpt: It's been pointed out that you don't really marry your camera anymore. You often marry your camera system, and with interchangeable systems you regularly marry glass, but the camera itself? They change too much, too fast these days.<br /><br />Well I've recently divorced Canon and I'm considering proposing to Fuji and this camera might just have me do it.
Pros: Built In Nd Filter, Good in Low Light, High Quality Glass, Large Clear LCD, Leaf Shutter, Small / Compact
Excerpt: I use it for a light travel camera. When the circumstances are not to difficult excellent images. The camera is a lot slower than I thought but I see it as a plus. This camera forces you to slow down and be more precise when taking pictures. Like in the film days. I ordered Extra battaries which is a must for working with it all day. I love the sync speed with flash sysytems.
Pros: Easy to Use, Small / Compact
Cons: Lag / Shutter Delay, Poor in Low Light, Short Battery Life
Excerpt: By now you have read all the good things about this camera. They are all true. So I am just going to skip the pleasantries and get right down to business. Here are things that prevent me from giving it a 5-star. 1. You have to put on a adapter ring before you can put on a filter. Together they add about 1/2 inch into the depth of the camera which negates the compactness of this baby. And then, the lens cap does not fit quite well. 2.
Excerpt: Waited a long time to update from the x100 - I really wanted the black body and glad I held out! Beautiful finish, and the improvement on Autofocus and useability is worth it alone. Battery life also improved.
Pros: Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Small / Compact
