Review: Fujifilm X100S

 

The Fujifilm X100S is the camera you want without even knowing it.

Compact size. Amazing photo quality. You look cool using it

Controls take longer than usual to master. Battery life and meter can cut a planned long day shooting too short

Fujifilm X100S

 

When Fujifilm announced its FinePix X100 retro-styled compact at Photokina 2010, it instantly captured the imagination of serious photographers. With its fixed 23mm F2 lens and SLR-sized APS-C sensor, it offered outstanding image quality, while its...

Excellent JPEG image quality - little need to shoot Raw except to correct WB ; Very sharp 23mm (35mm equiv.) F2 lens ; Fast and responsive when shooting (with decent SD card) ; Speedy and generally accurate hybrid AF (but still slower than the best M43...

AF can still get confused occasionally even in bright conditions ; Histogram does nothing useful in manual mode (when it would be most useful if it worked) ; No face-detection AF ; Rear LCD somewhat prone to glare in bright light (use viewfinder...

The Fujifilm X100S is a hugely likable, very capable camera with some useful tricks up its sleeve. Almost all of the bugs from the X100 have been ironed out, and image quality from its 16MP X-Trans sensor is excellent.

Editor's Choice

Fujifilm X100S

 

Don't be fooled by the Fujifilm X100S's retro exterior; it's a modern, full-featured digital camera that impressed us enough to earn our Editors' Choice award.

Hybrid optical/electronic viewfinder. Superb high ISO image quality. 35mm wide-angle field of view. Fast f/2 lens. Excellent control layout. Fast focus. Continuous shooting at 5fps. X-Trans image sensor. Wide-angle adapter available.

Bigger than some other large-sensor compacts. Lens suffers from edge softness. Macro shots at wide apertures have a soft-focus look. Video could be better. No image stabilization. Rear LCD could be sharper.

To the left of the LCD you'll find controls to enter playback mode, change the metering pattern, select from continuous drive shooting options, and change between the rear LCD, eye-level finder, or activate an eye-sensor to make that changeover...

Fujifilm X100S review: Making today’s pictures with yesterday’s design

 

Retro is so hot right now. Mad Men is on its sixth season and still pulling in huge ratings. The Great Gatsby is due to hit theaters next month, with a period-correct 1920s setting. And Fujifilm's...

Pretty looks ; Fast autofocus ; Great image quality ; Hybrid viewfinder

Clumsy control system ; Video is an afterthought ; Minor build quality complaints

The X100S is an excellent camera, but I'm dying for a full-frame version

Fujifilm X100S review

 

Despite an almost identical appearance to its predecessor, the X100, the Fujifilm X100S offers enough enhancements to deliver a significantly more fluid shooting experience and notably improved photo quality. It still suffers from a few annoying issues...

The Fujifilm X100S produces excellent photos, and an updated viewfinder adds to the camera's increasingly streamlined shooting design.

The lens has a few quirks, as does the autofocus system.

A great enthusiast compact for manual-focusing fans.

Fujifilm X100S Review

 

While not made for everyone, the Fujifilm X100S is an amazing rangefinder-type model. With unparalleled image quality and performance, this is a must have for the right group of photographers. Read more in our Full Conclusion.

Program mode allows basic point-n-shoot operation ; Shutter Speed and Aperture dials on the camera body ; Fixed 35mm Fujinon f/2.0 lens ; Unparalleled image quality in its class ; Hybrid EVF offers a fantastic way for you to shoot no matter what your...

Limited versatility with the fixed lens ; No active face detection software while shooting ; 2.8-inch screen looks rather small on the back of camera and does not provide the clarity you will find in the EVF ; Very steep price tag

Fujifilm X100S Review

 

Successor to the popular X100 camera, the Fujifilm Finepix X100S is a new compact camera that's still quite unlike any other available today. Featuring a retro design that bears more than a passing resemblance to the Leica M-series, the X100S is a...

It may look almost identical to the original X100, but the new X100S includes so many improvements, particularly to its operational speed, that it definitely feels like shooting with an entirely new camera. We were sceptical about what the X100S would...

Fujifilm X100S Review

 

The Fuji X100S rangefinder-style camera takes a leap forward with its new 16.3-megapixel X-Trans CMOS II sensor that helps it deliver stellar images with low noise, high dynamic range, good color and improved resolution. Overall, its performance bests...

Attractive, retro rangefinder-style design; Improved (excellent) still image quality that's even better thanks to second generation X-Trans sensor technology; Great, sharp f/2 35mm-equivalent lens; Overall better operation and performance than the...

Low-light AF slow and inconsistent; Video quality, even at 60p, compromised by moire and lack of image stabilization; Combined four-way pad/Command dial means AF control points cumbersome to change; Too easy to bump control dials and change settings...

First things first: The Fuji X100S is inarguably a better camera than its predecessor, the X100. It delivers superior image quality, thanks to its APS-C-type, next gen X-Trans CMOS II sensor featuring 4 megapixels more resolution. Its new hybrid...

Camera Review: Fujifilm X100S

 

A retro-style compact for the manually inclined gets faster and smarter.

Fantastic SLR-like image quality, even at high ISOs; nifty hybrid viewfinder; cool look

It’s expensive; Fuji’s menu system is less intuitive than alternatives

Camera Test: Fujifilm X100S

 

After achieving near-instant cult status with its rangefinder homage, the X100, Fujifilm had to tread lightly in designing the follow-up model. Fiddle too much with success of this fixed-lens compact camera, and risk alienating the many photographers...
