The advantages of the Hybrid Viewfinder are that the EVF provides prompt support when the OVF can’t show the information needed (including picture size). The OVF may take a shot more promptly than the EVE but the preview function on the EVF helps preview the picture I’m taking.
F2 is the focus and aperture of classic prime cameras in the age of films. It has the benefit of a wide-angle lens and enables the photographer to achieve a superb bokeh effect. It is suitable for portrait shots and for landscape shots too.
Fuji X100s advantage is in ISO. The X100 provides multiple choices in dynamic range, which perform well in low light conditions and high contrast scenes.
The design is an absolute classic. It looks like a classic rangefinder camera which still holds a place in our hearts.
The camera is small and exquisite. The imaging quality is very good. The Hybrid viewfinder EVF and OVF are the two features of X100 which can’t be ignored. Generally speaking thought, photographers choosing this kind of camera hope to experience the fun of manual focusing, therefore hopefully manual focusing will be considered in future models.
The reason is the same as why the prime camera can’t be replaced in the age of films. What this camera brings to us is better imaging quality and imaging control. Moreover, the prime camera brings its relative smallness and exquisiteness. What the X100 brings to us is a new revolution actually.
My favourite function is the film simulation modes. The effects of films are great. I often use the panoramic viewing function for scenic shots.
It adds more fun photography. A 35mm lens doesn’t suit scenic shots, however this panoramic function strengthens the X100’s appeal.
