  • Conclusion: We had a ton of fun with the X100s, and even shot an entire photo story with it. It's a marvelous piece of equipment in terms of build quality and image quality, but its quirks and limited versatility make it a hard to justify purchase for many people looking for an easy to use camera that will...
  • Pros: Great low-light performance, great build quality.

26 September 2015
  • Summary: It has been more than two years since I published my original short Fuji X100 review , where I expressed my frustrations with the camera and its autofocus system. Since then, Fuji worked hard on fixing autofocus issues and the original X100 is now a whole different camera (just like the Fuji X-Pro1,...

Fuji X100S Review

Ken Rockwell
8 December 2014
  • Conclusion: The X100S is the world's best digital camera for travel, family and candid photography. It is so much better handling and gives far better images under a far broader range of conditions than any DSLR, mirrorless, compact or even LEICA camera. There is no contest, the X100S wins.

Fujifilm X100S

Imaging Resource
25 November 2013
  • Conclusion: First things first: The Fuji X100S is inarguably a better camera than its predecessor, the X100. It delivers superior image quality, thanks to its APS-C-type, next gen X-Trans CMOS II sensor featuring 4 megapixels more resolution.
  • Pros: Solid build and sharp, retro "rangefinder" style design with decent ergonomics, Very good 23mm (35mm-equivalent) f/2 lens, Built-in 3-stop ND filter, Noticeably better resolution than predecessor, thanks to upgraded 16.3-megapixel X-Trans CMOS II sensor, JPEG engine produces very pleasing images,...
  • Cons: While autofocus performance has improved, it's still slow and inaccurate in low light, real-world conditions (moving subjects), No face detection autofocus, Fixed-focal-length lens doesn't give you much flexibilit, Handgrip insubstantial and not sufficient for one-handed operation; somewhat slipp...

DP Review
29 July 2013
  • 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 16 MP 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...
  • 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 ...

21 July 2013
  • Summary: The Fujifilm X100s a relatively compact APS-C camera in a nice retro design. It has an excellent viewfinder that even can be switched between optical and electronic modes. Even in the optical mode all essential shooting information is presented thanks to an LCD overlay.
  • Pros: Hybrid optical and electronic viewfinder with exposure and focus area overlay, High-quality lens, fast, sharp and hardly any optical flaws, Excellent build quality, Excellent image quality at low ISOs, Responsive in most shooting modes (unless you're bracketing), Great manual focusing aids (focus...
  • Cons: Image quality less than what is achievable from an APS-C sensor, No shake reduction, Slow and somewhat inaccurate autofocus, LCD smallish and of low resolution by today's standards, Shutter speeds can't go lower that 1/4 s in autoexposure modes, Quirky control dials, Some settings (self timer for...
