It was back in 2012 when I first got my hands on an original Fujifilm X100. It was not that I was seeking this encounter, not at all. Quite the opposite! For years I had been shooting with Nikon and Canon SLRs and I was quite content with these cameras – after all they were the expected choice for every serious photographer.

Therefore, when my friend let me play with his X100 I was sceptical. What a toy, I thought. This just cannot be a serious camera – look at its size! Did I mention it was quirky and weird?! My first reaction was to give it back along with my usual dose of twisted humour – just enough to embarrass the hippie owner.

However, something strange happened. Each time I approached my camera hideout my hands failed to grab the serious Nikon SLR and instead went for the eccentric X100 – it was paranormal activity at play to say at least. Then everything just spiralled downwards for my Nikon. Not only did I shoot almost exclusively with the X100 but I started taking visual risks I had never dared to before. Strangely, my “seeing” regained a spark – yes in both eyes!

As my photographer friends watched in horror, I sold all my SLR gear and started shooting exclusively with the X-series cameras and lenses, with the X100 becoming my flagship camera. Yes, you’ve got it right. The X100/S/T/F is, in my view, the flagship….
