Fujifilm X100 – It Will Improve Your Photography and It Is An Ideal First Camera


Fujifilm X100V: B&H Photo / Amazon / Adorama

Over the years I have helped a lot of photographers move from Canon/Nikon/Sony to Fujifilm and most of them started their Fujifilm journey with an X100. In fact, the reader that sent this in is a friend that used to shoot Canon and Sony but left them for Fujifilm due to the X100 and the above video does a good job of covering why.

Fujifilm stands out among its peers due to its superior feel that makes you want to take the camera with you everywhere you go. It’s also a great first camera because it will encourage you to learn how to use an exposure triangle when shooting instead of trusting the camera to do the work for you. Sure smartphones are convenient, but I personally take maybe 3 photos a year on my smartphone because I generally have my X-T4, GFX100, or X-E3 IR with me when I leave the house.

The restrictions of the Fujifilm X100 are actually very liberating because they make you think more carefully than shooting with a zoom lens or a more automated camera system. The X100 is best when you go back to basics and embrace classical photography because it will improve how you shoot and compose substantially without providing additional frustration. The only real downside is that it might hook you and make you want to explore more of what Fujifilm has to offer.
