I have been using a Fujifilm X100 series cameras since May 2011 and I thought it might be worth looking back at my journey with this brilliant mirrorless-camera range from the Fujifilm X100 through to the X100T and the X100F and most recently my hands on experience with the X100V.
The move from DSLR over to the Fujifilm X100 for stills, involved a bit of a learning curve, it took time to familiarise myself with the quirky X100 but I was hooked, I loved it and I firmly believe the process of using the X100 helped me develop as a photographer.

The Fujifilm X100, best everyday camera?
Within a few months Fujifilm released a series of firmware upgrades and the X100 was getting better and better. The release of the X100S brought a massive performance boost and two generations later the X100T has matured into a powerful little image maker that can literally go anywhere and everywhere. The X100 series has gained a permanent place on my gear list and I currently take the X100T camera everywhere with my little Pixi tripod and Lee filter kit.
