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.
