SHOOTING WITH THE FUJI X100F - Peter Stewart Photography

May 14th, 2017 | Peter Stewart



I finally got one!


After two months of trekking around South East Asia, and asking just about every camera store from Bangkok to Hanoi, I finally managed to acquire one of the last over the counter copies of the new Fujifilm X100f in black. 

I've lusted after this camera for a while now as an all-purpose walkabout, so when Fuji announced a new successor using the same excellent sensor tech as an XT-2 and X-pro2, I knew it was time to jump onboard and get into mirrorless. 

While I'll save the review for another time once I've had time to properly adjust to and thoroughly use the camera, I will say this; it is bloody fantastic! The sheer joy of using the X100f far surpasses how I feel shooting with a DSLR.

In the meantime, I would like to share with you a batch of images taken during my first week with the camera. 

Unless otherwise stated, all pictures are out of camera JPEGS shot using the built-in film emulation presets. 

My basic setup with using the camera thus far has been to leave the ISO and shutter speed set to Auto (with parameters being Min/Max ISO: 200 to 6400 & Min shutter: 125's) and then manually control aperture. With the EVF, I use spot metering mode in conjunction with the exposure compensation dial to see in real time where I want my highlights & shadows to fall.
