Fuji X100s






In the cliche ridden, dogma dominated world of the photographic internet, the Fuji X100s is a camera for 'street photography'. For no other reason than it looks like the Leica cameras that Cartier-Bresson and others used to shoot outdoors with. The fact that other cameras, e.g. pretty much any m4/3 model of the past few years, are better for fast reaction shooting in an urban outdoors situation doesn't seem to matter to those who can't think for themselves. 

And just like film Leicas were used (and still are) for studio, portrait, landscape and virtually every other kind of work, the Fuji X100s is capable of turning it's hand to whatever is asked of it. It is a fine, light and small camera for sunny days shooting landscape / location pictures for example and the W/A adapter came in very useful. I'm still waiting for the teleconverter to appear to give me my faux '28mm' 35mm' '50mm' classic outfit. And when I do get my hands on one, I'm sure it will get used for all sorts of photography. Now that might do nothing for my 'street cred'. But then that mistakes me for somebody who gives a damn.

This is a personal blog written 'in the moment' and is primarily intended as an entertainment.

Plus the Soundimageplus blog is 100% independent. No-one sends me gear to review and I have no relationship with any manufacturer or retail outlet. I buy all the gear I use and write about. The advertisements that appear on this site are generated by Google and I have no control over the content, which differs from country to country. I do make a small income from them, which covers expenses and some small recompense for the time I take to write this, but no more than that. If you like what you read and would like to help me to continue to keep buying stuff to write about then clicking on a few adds will earn me a few fractions of a penny. It will cost you nothing and you don't have to buy anything to contribute a (very!) small amount to my coffers.
