[Thoughts] Fujifilm X100F

DSCF2018

This month I had the chance to test the Fujifilm X100F (thanks Matthias!) during a short trip to egapark Erfurt (german website). It was overcast, rained a little bit, but we had fun trying out new cameras.

I didn’t have the camera long enough to write a full review, so I’ll just list some random thoughts and images. In the end I felt like it was just another metal box, that made images – not the over?-hyped camera I’ve read lots of articles and watched lots of youtube videos about. But I did want to shoot it more at the end of the trip, so who knows…

I liked the optical viewfinder with frame lines, I’m not quite sure about the electronic viewfinder – but I haven’t really used one so far. It’s nice you don’t have to go into the menu to change things – you can turn actual physical knobs on the camera itself. Battery life is a bit challenging.

Somehow I don’t think I shoot differently then with my current always-with-me camera: the Olympus XA2. Also with a fixed 35mm lens. If you want to compare the following shots with my usual analog output, you can take a loot at my instagram.
