10 Jan Fujifilm X100F Camera Review: One Powerful Companion to Consider
Source: Fujifilm Insider
It doesn’t happen very often that we encounter unique cameras that try to do something different from the rest and follow their own design philosophy, as it’s often not very profitable for manufactures to experiment a lot with their products and thus to play it safe is usually the more profitable option and one of the main reasons why most of the cameras on the market are easily comparable to one another (even if they are made by entirely different companies). For most users out there, this won’t be an issue at all, since all they seek is a camera that just works and doesn’t take any unnecessary risks from trying too hard to be different from the rest, but there will always be some people looking for something more and for a device that will bring them some new experience.
Today, we have a camera that falls into the category of unique products for more than one reason, and that’s the Fujifilm X100F. It’s actually a hybrid of many different types of cameras; it’s a compact camera because of its small size and the fixed lens, a mirrorless camera because of its design and the control scheme and lastly, a throwback to the older rangefinder cameras with its unique viewfinder and effective Film Simulation modes that are doing a very good job of imitating the look you would usually be able to achieve using a film camera. It could actually be compared with what Leica is trying to achieve with their cameras, but of course, without costing a premium that most people won’t be able to justify spending for a camera. That’s not to say that the X100F is very affordable, but considering that it offers a large number of useful functions and features that a lot of photographers will appreciate having in a small and portable body that they can carry around with them any day or night, it’s pricing beings to make a lot of sense.
While it does offer impressive things like the 24-megapixel X-Trans sensor, an excellent viewfinder, great build quality and a seriously good controls layout, a flexible lens, advanced AF system, decent burst rate and a lot more, it’s still a camera that’s mostly focused on enthusiasts that are interested in taking stills rather than recording videos. While it does have a few tricks up its sleeve to offer decent video producing experience, it certainly wouldn’t be our first choice for a camera to do that particular job. That being said, if you need a compact camera that will allow you to take great photos at all times and will also enable you to record a video clip or two on the side, then the Fujifilm X100F should certainly be of interest to you.
If you’re still undecided about choosing this camera as your new tool and you need a lot more information about it to be able to form your final decision, than read on as we’ll about to explore the X100F in as much detail as possible and try to discover both its good and the bad side…
