Fuji X100T – First Thoughts

We must confess we haven’t had a chance to see or play with this new camera. Our ramblings are based on provided specifications, sample photos and other (lucky) photographers’ impressions.

As our readers know, the Fuji X100/S has been our favourite camera ever. Over the course of the last few years we have published numerous articles and reviews accompanied by great imagery produced by this little gem. In fact, the majority of images you find on this blog were shot with the Fuji X100S.

We never ever leave house without this camera – the Fuji X100S always travels with us. If I were asked to keep just one camera, this would be it. This is why: 

  1. It is small, light and silent. It becomes a part of you and your seeing process because it’s so easy to carry around.
  2. It has a very high quality, bright, fixed lens – contrary to some who believe a prime lens will make you think more carefully and take better imagery. You will use your brain, imagination and legs.
  3. You won’t carry a bag full of gear and be constantly looking for the best fit. Instead you will focus on the scene, subject and light. You will create stunning images.
  4. You will find the all-important knobs (yes knobs!) at your fingertips. You will physically feel it when you change aperture or shutter speed. That’s the way it should be.
  5. You will see the final image before you take it thanks to an innovative EVF (we cannot wait to see the latest version in X100T)
  6. You will shoot JPEGs and they are going to be stunning (especially in regard to skin tones).
  7. Finally, you will rediscover photography.

As soon as we get our hands on the Fuji X100T we will share our full review of this new camera (for now make sure to check out an excellent coverage here and here).

Here are some recent images taken in the Okanagan wine region. Some are JPEGs, some processed RAW files but all are taken with the Fuji X100S.

  1. It is true that this X100T is a very interesting camera. I have the X100s and hope that a couple of improvements are coming through firmware upgrade soon, especially the electronic shutter (love to shoot wide open in bright light).
    I hope Fuji will continue to enjoy great sales with this new model so that they can continue producing great cameras at a good pace!
