    Not true, 50mm is as the human eye sees.

    That’s great I’ve been thinking of getting the T or the F

    "Fuji really gets it". Well....it depends on the shooter. Personally, I find the idea of having dedicated hard-wired controls rather old school. With many modern mirrorless cameras (e.g. Sony, Canon, Nikon), you can keep looking in the viewfinder and adjust everything (mode, aperture, shutter, ISO). You don't need controls with olde fashioned writing on them -- you can see the settings in the viewfinder. Also, I couldn't help but see your awkward grip on the body. There's just nothing to hold on to. It's a brick. Compare that to other offerings that have decent grips and, in the case of Sony, long battery life. The thought of being stuck with a 35mm lens ad infinitem is also problematic for me. With other cameras (e.g. Sony a6100), you can walk around with a fixed 35mm if you want to, but you can also pop on a 28mm or a 50mm or even a telephoto. Heaven forbid, you can also pop on a compact zoom. Fuji doesn't get it for me.

    Am I the only one or the X100 series actually take nicer photos than the X-T20 or 30?
    The photos look more vintage and more organic on the X100, where as the X-T20 takes more synthetic and digital like photos.

    I have had my Fuji X30 since 2015 and I love it. It shoots at only 12Mp and it does not have a big sensor, but I love shooting with it because I know the camera and it gives me the shots I want. Brilliant in manual mode and tons of features and again, the incredible construction. I have Dslr's but i use them for macro and specialized shots, but the X30 is ALWAYS with me. Fuji's are brilliant and well built and if I had more money I would only use them. I simply cannot afford the lenses and to be honest I think that when you shoot with a fixed lens camera of a prime lens, you learn faster and spend more time in planning you shots. Even though the X30 comes with a 4x zoom, I always shoot at 28mm.

    I bought the X100T the first week it came out. Fantastic camera. I still own it , with its 50,000 shutter count. I have an extensive array of cameras, and this might well be my favorite all around shooter.

  • Syahmi Salleh

    I'm an analog shooter but I would seriously consider this if I ever make the decision to try digital photography. I'm so used to having the ability to control aperture and shutter speeds through physical dials and these looks like a great option.

    I thoroughly miss my X100S. The colour rendition blows my Nikon D7200 and past D800 out of the water. I'm counting down the days until I can return to Fujifilm. Think it'll be an XT3 though, so not quite as portable.

  • PG Somers

    Pablo, a great review, not so much technical as enthusiastic. But you have telegraphed the Fuji 100F's whole philosophy absolutely perfectly - it's the perfect (travel) camera. Thanks

    It is a great camera no doubt but it´s soooo expensive, for that price you could find today te marvelous xe3 and a 23mm f2 wr lens, thats a streetphoro killing setup, and you obtain a more versatile interchangable lens camera.

    Nice review, just want to add on a thought; (my two cents worth), I'we got a X Pro2, clamp on a 23mm lens, and i does what a X 100F does, and more, more or less same form factor (except maybe for the lens itself) I can change lenses, imagine that! Does not cost all that more, and has professional features as dual card slot and an available lens choice that have (almost) no restrictions... PS and I can use the lenses on the new X Pro3, when that arrives, as I have done on my X E1, X Pro 1, and now E pro 2. Not putting down the X100F, but opting for an (better in my vieuw) alternative.

    Just picked up my X100F in brown after using a friends X100T. Biggest improvement for me is that all the buttons are shifted to the right side on the back of the camera. So much easier one handed operation. This camera just makes you want to create. I love it.
    BTW your shots are amazing.

  • Corot Images

    I love the Fuji x100f my favorite camera I have ever owned. I shot with Leica IIIf, M3, and M6 and this camera reminds me of the M3. Fuji is the new Leica. Besides phenomenal images it is fun to use and feels like a real camera. I tried and owned others and they felt like computer picture taking boxes from Canon, Sony, Panasonic, and Olympus,. I feel like taking this camera everywhere. I have an xt 20 with the 16mm, 35mm, and 50mm wr series of lenses. When traveling x100f around my neck and xt20 with wrist strap with 50mm attached 16mm for wide angle.
    But I think the X100f May be the best digital camera ever made (one man’s opinion). Have many shots at 500px/corot2

  • Michael McCullough
    Michael McCullough 5 months ago

    The Fuji X100F is amazing! It’s especially great for persons wanting to work their photography skills. The features offered are amazing and the quality of build is fantastic. I love the optical and electronic viewfinder feature. You can customise the camera like you want. I feel liberated in thinking about the photos to take as the camera makes it seamless for you. A camera that will suit 90% of situations. Get this camera and you will get your love of photography back. I love being to use the Fuji film feature which replicates the Fuji films in the pre-digital era. Buy the special Fuji case for it to make it safe, and a second battery. Not suited to long shots situations and macro. Does have a simple electronic zoom feature which can help in some situations. Good for short video sequences.

    where did you get your strap from? No one ever seems to want to credit or cite that

    SPENCER WYNN 6 months ago

    Great review, and I could not agree more! I began with the X100S, the the "T", and now I am loving the "F". It is absolutely my go-to camera and the perfect travel camera. I should mention, I have two, X-Pro2 cameras as well, but for sheer enjoyment t and for conducting workshops, the X100F is the one I use.

    never understood the exposure dial... I mean, if you shoot raw you can easly increase/decrease exposure with LR or any other software so there is no need to bother with the dial and think about exp in post. right?

    Looks like I've been using this camera for some 2 years already. So before I had eos 30d and this fuji is amazing, really really nice camera. I like how discrete it is and how intuitive it feels, silent shutter sound. But as any tool it has some learning curve. First one was EV stops dial... Sometimes you just take camera out of pocket and shoot, and well ... That ring turns in the pocket.

    Thanks for the video! The photos are so great. I own an X100F too and I love it so much. However, I always get shaky photos for indoors settings even I use higher ISO and faster shutter speed. Would you mind sharing the setting (iso & shutter speed) for indoors photos?

  • Phil Jones65
    Phil Jones65 6 months ago

    I like the camera but the lens is quite soft at closer focus wide open it's not as good as I expected, also perhaps there is a reason why many have a 28mm maybe that wider view is better. 35mm is a bit of a no mans land it's not wide and it's not tele seems to be an uncomfortable mid between 28mm and 50mm

    How long ha this model been out and when will an upgrade happen ?

    Because If this had weather sealing then I’d go for it, but I’ve been currently cameraless for over three years (sold all my Nikon DSLr and
    lenses) and would like to one day return to photography. I like street photography, with a viewfinder, and this camera looks good. I know the Ricoh is the go to street camera p and s but the newest version lacks weather sealing too....

    I find the most important accessory for a black X100 can be found at an arts and crafts store. That’s right. Buy some black textured 1/4 inch tape and cover the useless flash that completely destroys the stealth factor. One cannot put a UV filter or hood on the X100 and still use the flash; so If you think you’ll need flash get a beautiful little EF-X20 and have a real flash that’s nothing in the pocket and also looks like it’s part of the X100. You will be very surprised how covering the eye-grabbing flash lens improves the stealth and all round serious look of the black version. If you have the silver version just leave it alone. Kinda looks like an old light meter sensor and does not call attention to itself anyway. Just don’t try to use it if you so much as have a UV filter attached. Fuji: complete waist of space.
