The Fujifilm Finepix X100F (Affiliate link) – briefly X100F – is Fujifilms fourth (=F) iteration of the cult camera X100. The Web and YouTube are full of praise and emotional love letters for the X100. It is a camera that wants to be touched, picked up, handled, used. It looks gorgeous yet harmless and inconspicuous. The classical controls, with an aperture ring on the lens, a shutter speed dial and a dedicated exposure compensation dial, and numerous configurable buttons let experienced photographers cheer. No PASM dial, no cryptical multi-function dials, everything is immediately “there”.
Last weekend I used Aperture’s “smart album” feature to filter my photos from 2009 to today into groups of focal length:
(all values converted to 35mm equivalent focal length)
< 35 mm: Wide angle
35 to 65: more or less normal
66 to 135 mm: a typical focal length for portraits
135 to 200 mm: tele
> 200 mm: long tele
