As soon as it was released, I’d had my eye on the X100 but wasn’t ready to make the purchase.
And then when I was ready, Fukishima happened. So I waited some more, which turned out to be a good thing, because I was able to get my hands on the X100S, its successor.
The X100S is a classic camera in its look, it’s feel, and its operation. Everything you need to operate in full manual mode is available on the outside of the camera. I love that.
The Fujifilm menu system is one of my faves. It’s intuitive and just plain simple to use.
All the buttons and dials on the camera are easy to access and add greatly to the functionality of this camera. Smooth.
The only issue I had was holding the camera comfortably, but a silver LensMate thumb rest took care of that problem.
Plus I added a black Gariz half-case and the silver JJC lens shade.
