Last week, Fujifilm announced a brand new camera, the X-T100. Being somewhere between the X-A5 and X-T20, it is Fujifilm’s new entry level camera; small and compact, it also makes for a nice travel camera.
As an X-photographer, I wasn’t directly involved in the pre-production testing of this camera, but the fine guys of Fujifilm Middle-East gave (borrowed) me a production unit a few days before the May 25th announcement.
My first trip with the X-T100 was a short 24 layover in Paris; the city where Street Photography was born! While I was there, my French friend and fellow X-photograpger, Valérie Jardin, was teaching a Street Photography workshop in Paris. The perfect opportunity to make some test images with the X-T100, have a glass of red and talk photography!
Knowing Paris like the back of here hand, she pointed out a great spot to shoot silhouettes and reflections. While I framed both images of people facing the camera and walking away from it, the image below made me think about Valerie’s recent ebook called Anonymous. More about her eBook as well as the X-T100 later…

While the X-T100 has my favorite colour Film Simulation, “Classic Chrome” it does not have the newer Acros Black and White Film Simulations.
