Just got the TT350F in. For some reason, I was expecting something the size of a "normal" sized flash, but this thing is rather... petite.

I very rarely ever use flash on camera. I got it mainly to replace the 433 mHz trigger I have for my Flashpoint and Cheetah v850 flashes.

I bought the Adorama branded version of that (Flashpoint Zoom-Mini TTL R2)... wasn't enough light so I bought the flagship Fuji EF-X500 because I found one new in box for $300. Great speedlite for $300... but I'd not buy one for full retail ever. If it has Radio and a real AF illuminator I might change my mind.

anyone pre order the Xe3 , or plan on getting one ?

I am tempted by its size.. as well as simplicity . (or appears that way to me )

was wanting an X100f ... but I don't know .. seems like a lot of money for a camera with a fixed lens to me.
and then they announced the xe3 .. so now I'm thinking the xe3 is a better option

I plan on going for an X80 when they are released. Don't like my x100T as it is expensive and not as small to comfortably fit in a pocket. I play with an X70 the other day and it was perfect.

Go for that unless you want interchangeable lenses/viewfinder.

If they add a view finder and it’s got the same sensor as the current generation of Fuji cameras, then I’d probably swap my X100T for an X80. But there’s not been any rumours of it, so don’t get your hopes up too much!

I was giving it serious thought (because I want to consolidate my gear more and my X-T1 collects dust until I need a backup body), but I think the removal of the pop-up flash has changed my mind.

I think I'm still going to sell my X100T, but I'll be getting an X100F to replace it.

The X100 line is small if you include the lens, the X100F smaller again but there is a bit of a premium on it. Having a fixed lens makes shooting simple in my mind no fretting about what lenses to bring.

Haven't ordered the X-E3, thought long about it, and although the bigger EVF is very welcomed as well as the AF speed and the rest of it [AF nipple, yes!] I'd miss the little pop out flash. I was thinking of picking up the EF-X20 to remote trigger but that's another thing to worry about. I like getting on the dance floor towards the end of a night with he X-E2 with a w i d e lens on and manual focus with a sloooow shutter and deep f-stop the little flash bangs away there.

Otherwise nice more forward and in keeping with the direction the rest of the models have gone. My loss I guess [I know poor me right]. I think I'd prefer an X100F but If i didn't have the other cameras I might say a different story.

the more I travel the smaller and lighter I want to have the option to pack..

so yeah the x100f seems like a good option ,, or even as someone mentioned above , the x70

but i'm having a hard time with the fixed focal length... that's me though.
in a way that'd be great .often I've gone out with just my 23mm or when with sony just the 28mm..and in very casual situations it works ..especially when photos are not priority ..

but .. I prefer the options..

I think the Xe3 with an 18mm or 27 can get close enough to the size of an x100f ?
yet I still have the option of attaching what ever else to it ..

or have the Xe3 with the 18 attached .. around my neck and the XT2 with another lens in my bag :-)

.. I've almost convinced myself..

Vacation to Aruba coming in November !
gotta get ready !

I have considered the ex-3 as a vacation/ walk around camera because I miss my x70.(first fuji camera)

I think I will wait to see how the x80 is or pick up a used ex-2, who knows.

My local shop said his Fuji rep told him to start moving x70's. So i am guessing they are coming.

My X-E2 with the 27mm on it was about the same size as my X100T, though a bit thicker, especially without the hood on my X100T, without the hood it's really thin.

That said, the X100 brings more to the table than just being small. I genuinely wasn't sure how I was going to like the X100 line, but I made the trade because after I got my X-Pro2 (which I also didn't think I would like, bought it as a stop-gap while waiting for the X-T2 to launch/price to come down) and realized that I; 1) Loved the hybrid viewfinder. And 2) My X-E2 seemed redundant... I didn't need 2 ILC's (though I later bought an X-T1 as a backup body :lol: ) and the X-E2 was basically acting as an X100 anyway. So once I found someone willing to do a straight up trade for my X-E2 + XF 27mm for his X100T I jumped on it. Now that I have it... super glad I made that deal.

The leaf shutter, diminutive size, fast and great lens, hybrid finder and lets be honest, great looks :lol: make it stand out over any other Fuji camera in my book. You can find a few of these factors with any Fuji body (other than the leaf shutter), but the X100 line packs all of them into one. I mainly want the 'F' for the focus lever, matching batteries of my X-Pro2/X-T1 and Acros... I feel weird admitting that last one, but I've been using the in-camera RAW conversion more and more and loving it.

Side note, just took delivery of my "new" XF 60mm f2.4, so I've finally completed the original XF trilogy :cool:

Also... more shots from Woodward with the X-Pro2 and XF 18-55mm :)

I think the X80 or the X100F are the better options as a second camera if you already have one X camera.

Here are my reasons. Adapt or not as fits your needs :)

I already own an Xpro1 and an XPro2, so interchangeable lenses are covered. If my Xpro1 died, I would get one of the X100F as a replacement for the following reasons:

It is a solid backup camera. With the TCL and WCL, which weigh little and are compact compared to lenses, you have an 18/23/35 all at f2 kit. I might prefer an f1.4 lens, a 16mm lens, a portrait lens, but I could get by with these to finish the task. And it takes the same battery.

Leaf shutter. Sync super fast without tons of power (or get full advantage of my 1100 WS when battling the sun--day for night, anyone :). Adds capability I don't have and would use.

Handy little package. Discrete. Tiny. Still 24MP. Good to 12800 ISO if pressed. A powerhouse.

Built in flash. A built in flash, ready to go without taking the camera from my eye, drawing off the battery already in the camera--when I have had this feature, I have used it. By the time I know I want it, it's too late. A touch of fill can be a great advantage. Pitty the Xpro doesn't have this.

All this in a pocket sized camera (ish).

One thing to note: I can get by with a normal lens and a wider lens. If a significantly longer lens or some other lens quality is a game changer for you finishing a job, this wouldn't be as good of a choice. You can crop to a point with 24MP, but it won't replace a really long lens.


C&C always welcomed...
On my images, of course, and on my words as well--as long as it's constructive :).
