Steung Meanchey, Phnom Penh - Romeo and Juliet(s)

Fujifim FinePix X100's field testing.


My experience :


I used the Optical Viewfinder (OVF) mode most of the time.


As you know, I am more a reportage photographer. Responsiveness of the camera is crucial to me in capturing the right moment.


Finepix X100 is the fastest compact that I have had used before. It is responsive and yield great result from amazing colours, contrast, great ISO, sharpness and fast focusing.


I love the retro of a rangefinder styled compact. I love the aperture ring and shutter dial. I do not have to lift up my eye from the viewfinder while adjusting the settings, It is just like the great old time when I owned the Contax RTS II and III. That allowed me to capture panning shot easily.


I love this camera. It has the ability to cope with challenging issues in the street.


The 35mm lens (after crop factor) is just great. Am I limited by the lack of zoom ? No! As you can see, I do not miss the moment even with a fix lens. Its all about anticipation and move to the right place at the right time.


Thank you Fujifilm for this great camera! I hope I can have a free one! heehee
