The Fuji X100s in Hong Kong by Jose Tan
José here from Hong Kong again. Hope all is well and herewith is my first experience with the X100s on the streets of Hong Kong. A friend went to Tokyo recently and it dawned on me that the X100s had been launched there already. Thanks to his efforts, I am one proud owner of probably Fuji’s best camera to date IMHO. Shops here in Hong Kong are only taking pre-orders right now so I’m probably one of lucky few to shoot with the X100s here first :-)
Anyway, going to the cam, I cannot believe how fast the AF is even in low light. Probably as fast as my OMD and it is just a joy to shoot, especially street. The colors coming out of it are very pleasing to my eye and when looking at the files in Lightroom, they feel very “full-framish” with great micro detail and pop. Was not too happy before with the X100 or the X-Pro1 due to their sluggish performance and lag but Fuji really has hit a home run with the X100s and I guess I am third time lucky!
Attached are a few shots done in a couple of days, both in daylight and night-time. The color shots were shot in standard mode, in jpeg and tweaked a little bit in Lightroom, while the black and white ones were color jpegs converted in Silver Efex Pro.
Have a good day and thanks! :-)
