My First Wedding with a Fujifilm X100

I decided to experiment on a recent wedding on how a Fujifilm X100 camera would work as a 3rd camera option. Very happy with the results, here are some of my thoughts and photos.

Pros and Cons:

  • Slow Focus: watch out, be patient, don’t expect the shot to come out as quick as in a professional DSRL camera.
  • Fix Lens: It weights less, you see what you get, go straight to composing mode and take advantage of an excellent sharp lens.
  • Manual or Auto: In Manual, you can have complete control, in Auto you can use either aperture or shutter priority or go completely Auto letting the camera select the proper aperture or shutter settings for a correct exposure.
  • ISO: Almost noiseless at high ISO.

You need to know about film, mastering aperture, shutter speed and ISO, how to combine the 3 of them in order to get the “Photo”.

The camera reminds me a little bit of a large 4×5 format camera with the versatility of a 35mm and the enjoyment of having all those features in a digital technology.

Remember: cameras don’t take pictures, lenses don’t take pictures either, people do.
