Along the roster of new high quality compact digital cameras that come out in 2017 is the new FUJIFILM X100F (announced February 2017). It is a 24 megapixel APS-C camera that comes with a fixed FUJINON Super EBC 23mm f/2 wide angle lens. The retro look resembles the rangefinder cameras of a bygone era and have a strong aesthetic appeal. The camera itself is compact and ideal for those who wish to travel light -- making it great for street photography, macros, selfies, family/group shots, and general photography.
Despite being a fixed single focal length camera, it has flexible options in the menu that allows you to switch between 23mm, 41mm, 58mm, 70mm, and 100mm. When you're shooting with the FUJIFILM X100F, you blend perfectly with the crowd... discreet, camouflaged, candid. Perfect for street photography.
Today is my shootout of the product shots plus samples with the new FUJIFILM X100F. Filmed with my ever reliable Nikon D5200, my Tamron Adaptall 2 28mm f/2.5 (02B), and Tamron Adaptall 2 SP 90mm f/2.5 Macro (52B). All photos and sample shots are unedited.
For a change, I decided to do a product shot outdoor for the very first time. It's nice because the whole environment is like a light box surrounded by diffused light, and there's ample lighting so I can use smaller aperture (like f/16 or f/32). The foliage in the background, plus the solar flare also adds more dramatic effect. The results look more exciting to me than my usual studio setup where setting up the lights take forever.
