Fuji X100 Macro Photographs

1 min read

I really consider the X100 as my everyday walk about camera. More and more as I adjust to working with a light weight camera I am considering if I really need a full frame digital SLR camera at all.

I decided to look at the performance of the X100 with traditional autumnal photographs and I am particularly impressed at just how the camera performed especially at apertures of F2.8 – f2.0.

I attempted to recreate the high level bokeh photography that I would normally produce with a 50mm lens at 1.4. It doesn’t quite match the performance of a nifty fifty as it is locked to 35mm and f2.0 but the results are not that bad for a compact camera.

The full set of X100 photographs can be found in a dedicated X100 flickr set here.

  1. I looked at the X100 and turned it down for two reasons. One was because I couldn’t see where I was shooting, but I understand that this is something that one can adapt to.

    The other reason was that the playback zoom in the LCD only zoomed a small amount – so it was impossible to tell whether one had landed a pin-sharp shot.

    I would be interested in hearing your response on this because you obviously get good stuff out of the camera.
