Nearly a decade with the original x100

Recommended Posts

Howdy ya'll, new member here.

As we all know, the beloved x100 has turned a decade old. I purchased the x100 back in 2012 while I was living in East Asia. Many years were spend living on the road, backpacking with this incredible, simple, yet quirky setup.

It is so easy to catch a bad case of GAS with all these new releases, and I have also expanded to other X cameras, but as I was looking back on my images of the x100, I was thinking how much we can create with 'obsolete' cameras. We can upgrade to more megapixels and that's great, but ultimately its stories and experiences that matters.

I wrote more rambles of my beloved little Fuji-san along with more pictures: https://medium.com/@christofferjames/the-life-of-a-fujifilm-x100-original-d440794b657d

Here's to another decade!

I'm glad I clicked on the more detailed story.  It was neat for you to buy it with almost no research or forethought.  And look where it has taken you.  I love my X100s which has taken many thousands of pictures and is still active since being converted into infrared.  I use my newer X100F for color and some B&W.

    • Fan of X-Trans since P&S days Is RGB or RGGB better mosaics than Fujifilm's GBGGRGRB? How many bits of dynamic range and how few fractions of arc-seconds of resolution are needed for the more common pixel mosaics versus the more complicated X-Trans? Moire decreases with pixel size but photopic luminance for color channels and spacial frequency still matters. Debate, now, for your favorite mosaic!
    • Did you say iPhone? Their external mics usually have 4-conductor cables, which aren't directly compatible with anything else. Try an adapter with 3 conductors.
    • Welcome to  our forum! But I don't see an attached photo.
    • Greetings, Although my friends say I take good photos with my smart phone (Samsung S9+), I have forever wanted to learn the ropes of photography and finally pulled the trigger on a camera I think I can grow with, the X-T4. I'm mostly interested in still nature shots although I do enjoy documenting the dark crevices of a city from time to time. I'm looking forward to learning how to use my camera manually and will enjoy the insights in this forum. Attached is a beach photo I took with my phone. Dale
