FUJIFILM X100 Overview

  • 1Description

Looking for the digital equivalent of an old-school rangefinder camera? Try the Fujifilm FinePix X100 Digital Camera. It has a fixed focal length 35mm (equivalent in 35mm format) lens with a very bright f/2.0 aperture (a classic lens choice for rangefinders) and a 9-blade diaphragm for beautiful blur in out-of-focus areas (bokeh)--plus a very large (approximately 4-5 times the size of a typical compact camera sensor) APS-C CMOS sensor with 12.3MP of resolution.

The durable magnesium alloy body is clearly based on time-honored rangefinder designs, with the welcome addition of a small grip for better stability in holding the camera. A switchable hybrid optical/electronic viewfinder and a high resolution 2.8" LCD monitor with 460K-dot resolution make capturing images with the X100 a real joy.

Unlike most old-school rangefinders, though, the X100 will also give you 720p HD video with stereo sound. Other non-traditional features are sensitivity from 100 to 12800 ISO, RAW capture and processing (in-camera) for the highest quality images possible, and high-speed contrast autofocus.

You can use the Film Simulation mode to give your photos the distinctive look of Velvia, Provia or Astia film, or Monochrome (with separate adjustment of shadow and highlight tones for superb control over the tonality). Macro mode will focus as close as 4" from the lens, and a built-in 3-f/stop neutral density (ND) filter can be activated with a simple on/off switch. 

The X100 is all traditional rangefinder design on the outside, all 21st-century technology on the inside.

    FUJIFILM X100 Reviews

    FinePix X100 Digital Camera is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 198.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, Fine Art Tool I would ignore all the negative reviews that you can find on the web. They are usually written by people that do not really have anything to do with real photography. Get one for yourself and you will not regret! This is NOT alternative to the DSLR in any aspects and it was not meant to be so all the comparisons to the Nikon D700 or Canon 5D should not be considered. I love Fuji's image quality up to the ISO6400 where the color shift prevents me from using it for the professional work. This camera produces OUTSTANDING Jpegs with excellent colors that far exceed the Nikon D300s capability. The AF can be annoying sometimes so I would never recommend this camera for action photography.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from I wanted to love it ........ BUT ....... The form factor for this camera is EXACTLY what i want. I waited a long time to get this camera. After using it for 3 days I had to return it. This camera does not focus correctly. I do not understand why this issue is not being discussed. I am a very experienced photographer - over 35 years. I have NEVER ...... repeat NEVER ...... had any camera with this type of unreliable focus. I read all the info on all the forums to mitigate the problem. I concluded it was not worth the effort. This camera is not ready for prime time. At this price you should not have to WORK HARD to get Autofocus to work properly. Yes ...... it had the latest firmware.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from What a joy! I am a Nikon D700 user who always wanted a compact camera that is not a compromise in terms of image quality and that also have a good viewfinder. Well, I couldn't ask for anything better than the X100! The image quality is just outstanding and the hybrid viewfinder is just superb. It is so compact you can take it anywhere! I highly recommend this camera as a second camera to compliment any DSLR kit! Make sure you understand that this camera is not a replacement for a DSLR. It is a compact and excellent camera but it is slower to operate than a DSLR and slower to respond.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Can't Believe I Waited 2 Years I've been wanting the X100 since it was introduced. It was hard to get it in the first year, so I thought why not waited for Fujifilm to come out with the next generation X100 with all the fixes to the AF problems, the bad menus, manual focus... that many people were writing about. Well, it doesn't seem like Fujifilm will do that anytime soon, and with the $ instant rebate I decided to get one. And I'm glad I did. What a beautiful and excellent camera it is. I have no complaint. I couldn't agree more with what RamblinMan wrote in his review. The firmware updates fixed most of the faults, and any complaints are just nit_pickings. Just get one, you will love it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow, this is an amazing camera Although I own a Canon 5D Markll, I am more excited about this little guy. I get more attention with this thing. People asking how old it is and they marvel that it's new. Camera pro's in camera shops that know about it but never have seen one get excited to try it out. Fantastic camera with really great pictures. Lens quality is better than I expected. Manual focus is a bit challenging, but overall this is one fantastic camera. Thanks B&H PS... Excellent low-light results PPS: Note: invest in a fast memory card like the Sandisk Extreme Pro 16 or 32. This camera can be a bit slow with typical cards, but absolutely fine with a fast card. Faster the better!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice camera I wanted a camera that is smaller than my DSLR that I can take with me all the time. I also wanted it to have a bigger sensor with great image quality and high ISO. The X100 was it. I take this camera when I don't feel like lugging around my DSLR. This camera compliments my DSLR and cannot replace it. It's not a fast shooting camera, a little bit of skill and anticipation is needed for faster paced subjects. Some people are disappointed with this camera since they tend to compare it with a DSLR which it clearly is not.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Full of Features, A Few Drawbacks Fuji's X100 requires your undivided attention to get good images. But, once you have mastered the optical/electronic viewfinder - no, it is not a rangefinder - you can get photos equal to those captured by the more expensive Leica X1. I returned my week-old X100, however, because of a faulty Set/OK button that, when pushed, erratically switched into white balance or macro rather than the menu. The camera's buttons have a loose, crunchy, cheap feel about them. Clearly, Fuji is on the right track with the X100 but the camera seems more like an unfinished prototype of something to come rather than a camera to live with for several years. If, however, you are deciding today between the X100 or Leica X1, go with the Fuji.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Little Gem I use this for shooting family and for landscapes. The pictures have that rich Fuji color and are extremely sharp (when you focus properly!). AF can be a little fiddly if you are using the OVF, but generally works fine for subjects 3 or more feet away. For closer than that, use the EVF which is a lovely little addition to the camera. I know that a firmware update is due soon and that may take care of a few niggles I have with the camera such as the fact that it does not remember your last chosen settings after you have shut it off along with somewhat slow AF and start-up times. All in all though this is a fabulous camera easy to carry and keep with you wherever you go.
