This little camera has literally stopped me using my far more expensive DSLR. I love this little camera, I can now take superb pictures wherever I am. The level of control the x100s gives you is equal to that of a DSLR! you can use this as a simple point and shoot or drill down into the finer details and shoot fully manual. i have even used this whilst on location instead of my DSLR and supporting equipment it''s that good. When paired with a good off camera flash it truly comes into it''s own, producing pin sharp images in demanding situations. In addition I''ve found myself able to connect with my subjects better. People are less put off by this unimposing little powerhouse than they are of a huge DSLR rig, they just act far more naturally. It has become an indispensable part of my equipment I now couldn''t live without!
The Fujifilm X100S Digital Camera features a 16 megapixel APS-C-sized X-Trans CMOS II sensor and an EXR Processor II image processor to provide high quality imagery and exceptional camera performance. The combination of the sensor and processor enables a native sensitivity range from ISO 200-6400, which is further expandable to ISO 100-25600. Fujifilm's proprietary X-Trans sensor uses a unique randomized pixel array in order to avoid the use of a resolution-reducing optical low-pass filter, therefore providing images with the utmost sharpness and clarity. This imaging system is benefitted by the Intelligent Hybrid AF system, which uses both contrast- and phase-detection methods to acquire focus quickly and accurately. The EXR Processor II also delivers fast performance speeds to all aspects of the camera, ranging from quick startup and shutter lag times to a fast 6fps continuous shooting rate.
