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.
The Fujifilm X100 is a great camera, it’s not a point and shot camera, it requires a well trained/skilled/professional to get the best out of its features.
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.
