Did you invest in DSLR’s or any other non-Fujifilm system?
Well, then let your fingers from the Fujifilm X100F, since the perfidious Fuji Guys conceived this camera as the “gateaway drug” into the X world.
In fact, I often hear of Nikon or Canon shooters, who just got and X100F as a secondary camera for everyday shooting. But once they felt the pleasure, inspiration and quality of shooting with Fujifilm, they started to buy an X-Pro2, or an X-T2, a few lenses, and ended up ditching their DSLR system completely.
Today we report about another hardcore Nikon shooter, who made the error to get an X100F as a secondary camera: very popular youtube photographer The SnapChick.
She says about the X100F:
- She tried the Nikon DF, which never fully embrace its inner “analogueness”
- X100F hits the sweet spot between old school feel and modern features
- X100F solidly build and super clean, classic design
- it’s all about the basics
- intuitive menu. Coming from other brands, she felt like she already knew how to use 90% of the functions without needing the menu or manual
- Sony mirrorless felt like a computer for her, but Fujifilm is doing it right
- she liked to use film simulations a lot
- this was the first time in a long time, that she was excited to look at photos later on
- she thought that the X100F would make an occasional guest appearance in her camera bag, but after a couple of months with “this gem” and the Fujifilm X100F was almost always in her bag, and often no other camera
- high quality images that rival anything else out there
- Fujifilm’s passion is evident, or they could never have produced something like this, where the features and the functions are so well geared to help you do that one thing really well: capturing great images with the least distraction while giving you full creative control
I doubt she will end up ditching their Nikon system, since most of her followers on youtube are Nikon shooters. But it’s nice that she captures in words so nicely what’s about to be a Fujifilm X shooter: enjoying the pictures just as much as the process to take them.
