Photographer’s Guide to the Fujifilm FinePix X100 has just been published. Details about the book are available on its main information page. The book contains more than 190 photographs, including quite a few examples of the images the camera can take. Other photos are of the camera’s controls, screens, and accessories. These books are limited in page length because of production costs, so I can’t include in the book all of the photographs I would like to.
With this web site, I have the ability to post some of the photographs that did not make it into the book. I am including a few of them here, just to give you some more examples of how the X100’s photos look. I’m not displaying any of these as examples of particular techniques or of particularly fine composition, etc.; they are just examples that seem to me to be representative of shots that show off the camera’s capabilities pretty well.
The first image is an example of downtown street photography. The second one was shot with an R72 infrared filter, in a way similar to that described in the book. The third shot is similar to one that appears in the book and on the book’s back cover; this version was taken from a different angle and shows more of the surrounding park. Finally, for the last two images, the first one was taken without a filter, and the second one was taken with a polarizing filter attached to the camera’s filter adapter, to illustrate how the polarizer shows off the sky and clouds with more contrast than would be the case without the filter.
