Fujifilm X100 Review

A few months ago when the X100 was first announced , I immediately became very excited. Despite being of a completely different generation to when rangefinders were commonplace, I love their simplicity and style of shooting. In the modern world of DSLR’s and digital compacts, rangefinders are becoming scarce. Due to the nature of how a rangefinder works, today’s method of trigger happy shooting where just holding down the shutter button to take hundreds of photos, hoping at least one will be a “keeper,” isn’t encouraged. Composition requires effort and focusing requires time. Because time is taken, it forces the user to think hard about shooting and usually the result is better photos.

Fuji FinePix X100 First Impressions

So, as you will have spotted by now, last night I attended the South African launch of the Fuji 2011 lineup and there making its first appearance on our shores was a sample of the Fuji FinePix X100.

We hope to get to do a full review of it soon.

Fuji Launch Round Up

Last night I attended the South African launch of the Fuji 2011 line up. I wont go into many of the details of the cameras as we have covered them when they were announced worldwide earlier this year. What I would like to do is highlight the models that grabbed my attention and why.

FinePix XP30

This model is hailed by Fuji as the first waterproof camera with GPS and its about time. I would have thought manufactures would know that people buying this camera are more likely to want the GPS than the consumers for some of the other cameras that have had this feature.
