FujiFilm X100F update

So after shooting happily with the sublime FujiFilm X100s for the last 5 years or so, it's time for an update. Thankfully, in the interim, Fuji have not sat idle. They have iterated steadily, producing the X100t and in 2017 the X100f, representing a significant jump in specs and capabilities.

I love the way the X100s produces images, from the combination of it's controls and lens to the friendly portability and styling that impart a relaxed mood to capturing scenes. It's just so much fun to have around. Then in Lightroom, the grading possibilities and way that the X-trans sensor sharpens makes me look forward to processing images from trips abroad.

The X100F delivers a huge improvement in speed, battery life, ISO and file resolution, marking a significant commitment from Fuji to keep delivering on what makes the X100 series so delightful. I couldn't resist dressing up my new X100f in all the latest hipster accoutrements:

Thanks in particular to Gordy's Camera Straps for the custom leather and binding.
The only fauxhemian element left to arrive is a leather Gariz half-case, to replace the Fuji brown leather travel case I had on the x100s. Also, my amazing wife is getting me the Tcl-x100 tele-conversion lens for Christmas which will afford me a 50mm equivalent focal length. This will be a great travel and portrait option where the 28mm equivalent fixed lens is a little wide.

Merry Christmas and happy shooting!
