Photographer’s Guide to the Fujifilm FinePix X100


Photographer’s Guide to the Fujifilm FinePix X100: Getting the Most from Fujifilm’s Premium Digital Camera explains all operations, features, menus, and controls of the Fujifilm FinePix X100 camera in clear language, providing guidance not only about how to accomplish things with the camera, but when and why to use certain features. The book does not assume any specialized knowledge by the reader, but adopts a patient tone in discussing topics such as autofocus, manual focus, depth of field, aperture priority, shutter priority, HDR (High Dynamic Range) photography, and macro photography. The book also includes discussions of the camera’s special features, including its “hybrid” viewfinder system.

The book’s more than 190 photographs, almost all in full color, illustrate the camera’s controls and menus, and also include examples of the various types of photographs that can be taken using the many creative settings of the camera, including the Film Simulation settings, which let the photographer alter the color processing of images; various menu options such as Dynamic Range; and the camera’s strong array of features for continuous shooting.

In addition, the book introduces topics such as infrared photography, street photography, astrophotography, and creating 3D (three-dimensional) images that can be viewed with conventional red and blue 3D glasses.

The book also includes a full discussion of the video recording abilities of the FinePix X100, which can record high-definition (HD) video with stereo sound.

In three appendices, the book provides information about accessories available for the camera, sets forth a list of useful web sites and other resources for further information, and includes a section with helpful “quick tips” that give particular insights into how to take advantage of the camera’s features in the most efficient ways possible.

The PDF version of this book includes a detailed, interactive Table of Contents and Index, so the reader can quickly find needed information about any particular feature or aspect of the camera. The PDF is approximately 39 megabytes in size, and does not include any sort of copy protection.  A purchaser can load the file onto any number of computers, phones, iPads, or other devices as desired, as long as the file is being used only by that individual purchaser.

    Now I’m using Fujifilm Finepix HS10…but I don’t really understand how and when to use the Aperture and Shutter speed mode yet.I’m very keen in food photography and I want to get the very best pictures using the Aperture and Shutter speed mode or any other modes that suited the food photography.

    Could you please guide me which aperture number or shutter speed to shoot best food photos?Please feel free to visit my blog for your judgement on my recent photos taken by this camera.

    Thank you for your help.

      Hi — I took a look at your blog, and the photos look quite good already. I can give you my opinion, and maybe someone else will have thoughts. It seems to me that your goal is to have clear, sharp photos of the various dishes. I’m assuming you’re not using a tripod. If that’s true, then you need to use a fairly quick shutter speed, say, 1/30 second or faster, to avoid blur from camera shake. You also need a somewhat narrow aperture, probably f/5.6 or narrower (higher number) to keep the images sharp with adequate depth of field. You may have to boost the ISO setting somewhat to use those settings. You also might want to use any available settings to increase sharpness and possibly color saturation. I’m not familiar with the HS10, but these principles apply in general. If you use a tripod, you can use a slower shutter speed, but you still would need a relatively narrow aperture to keep the images sharp. I hope this helps.
