DPReview has their full review out on the X100

I was surprised by the review. I hadn't realized the camera had this many bugs and design flaws. Goodness! I think I'll wait until the next generation of x100 comes out and then I'll get one.

I'd actually love to know what you did as well (though an Aperture preset, sadly, ain't gonna cut it...there's a scratch/speck texture going on there). This first picture on your website (external link) is one of the more successful "analogizations" I've seen in a while.

To my eyes it looks pretty similar what AlienSkin Exposure produces?

i've just received this camera.

it is more complicated than i have thought. i can't seem to be able to take good pictures. I have Fuji HS10 and its' much more user-friendly than this camera.

IT may go back where it came from!


Body: Canon 5Dc, (Coming soon <<<6Dc, maybe I shall wait for 6Diic with TouchScreen!).
Other Favorite Camera:

Give it some time, it takes a little while to get used to the clunky interface :confused:

I do not find it clunky as it is a retro so it feels comfortable like the old M4 but with EVF. The rest are very similar location if you are used to shoot with range finder. LOL


5DMKII or 5D MK III
Enough gear for now... need to get out and shoot more.

When I say clunky, I'm not talking about the exposure controls - I love the intuitive analogue controls for aperture, shutter speed, and exposure compensation (while I've never owned a Leica, I do really like my Voigtlander R4a). The review on Luminous-Landscape sums up my feelings on the interface best - it seems like after the design team finished the top and front of the camera, they got sent home and they brought in the backups to handle the rest. Specifically, I don't like:

- Only having one Fn button, and having to dig through the menu to adjust the other parameters you chose not to use with it. I use the Fn button for ISO, so if I want to activate the ND filter, I have to go through the menu. It's not a big issue, but it's still an annoyance. I would have liked a dedicated ND button on the camera (probably in place of the RAW button, it seems like it would have been so much more useful). Alternatively, Fuji could have allowed users to map multiple settings to the Fn button - tap once for ISO, tap twice for ND, for example.

- Having to shift my grip and squeeze a finger in between the back of the camera and my nose if I want to change the focus point with my eye to the viewfinder. I really would have liked the AF point selection to be one of the options for the Fn button.

- The tiny OK/Menu button in the middle of the dial isn't as bad as some make it out to be, but I do think it's a little bit of a nuisance

- Not an interface problem, but still probably firmware related: my x100 locks up on me frequently. It's easy enough to pull the battery and reset it, but this kind of problem really shouldn't happen in the first place.

- The focus-by-wire system is slow - the focus doesn't change nearly as much as it feels like it should as you turn the ring.

Despite my gripes, I still really, really like this camera... it just definitely has its quirks.

A few photos from a recent trip to Nevada :) As I said before, I'm very, very happy with this camera, and I really hope Fuji addresses some of the problems people have been having... I'll bet they could solve most of the problems through firmware.

I HATE focus by wire. I wish manufacturers would stop using it, it doesn't feel good, its not accurate, its slow, its stupid, I never know which way I'm supposed to turn the ring. Its one of the things I really don't like about my e-p1. I'd rather have a bigger, more expensive lens with proper manual focus.

Sorry if this is a repost, but I just saw this. 580EXii is compatible with the X100.

Not bad...

I purchased an x100 last week and have spent the last few days shooting in the Northern Territory (Australia).

In a word - A S T O N I S H I N G

This camera has blown me away. Of course, I really like my 5D Mkii (& 50L lens), but the IQ of the X100 is on a par with it, especially at low light. ISO 3200 is a doddle, and even 6400 is clean. I was shooting at 12,800 the other night at the Darwin night markets.

It is quirky and a tad irritating at times, but there is a large firmware upgrade coming in the next few weeks which should address some of these things.

I have owned G9, G10, LX3, E-PL1 etc etc. All great cameras, but when it comes to image quality, they're not even in the same universe as the X100.

It is already a cult camera, and will become a classic.

However, I do realize that it is not for everyone. AF is not in the DSLR league, and of course it is a fixed lens. It is perfect for me, for landscapes and people.

Thoroughly recommended camera and worth every red cent.


Instead of loving things and using people, why not use things and love people? :-)

Great shots JDB!

Checked out a few reviews on the X100 lately. Really want to try one out still.

Well, it's interesting that they are releasing an update based on a dpreview. I'll be following the news on the update closely, although, to be honest, I really doubt I'll ever be the owner of an x100. Too costly and not quite what I'd expected. Pity, it seemed like such a cool idea and such a cool camera.
