Stuff about my Fujifilm X100T

Lately, I have been shooting a lot with my Fuji X100T.  After I got this camera, I started using it without reading the manual.  I just thought that it will be just like my Fuji X-Pro1.  I was wrong.

Here are some stuff I recently learned.

  1. Controls are different – buttons are placed differently than my Xpro1.  Almost all of the buttons can be assigned to your preference.. AWESOME!
  2. To enable Silent mode, you need to assign it first to the Q menu then you can turn it on and off there.  It is fine but I still prefer to just hold the disp/back button to enable it. It took me a couple of days to figure it out.
  3. Q menu can also be configured to your preference.  You can set it depending on your needs.  For me, i added the silent mode on it.

Fujifilm did an awesome job on giving us an option to adjust the button configuration depending on your shooting style.  I still have to figure out the best configuration for me.  As of now, all I did was assign the ISO button instead of video recording and adding the silent mode on the Q menu.  You just have to keep on shooting to understand more about your gear.

Train Ride with a Fujifilm X100T

Last Saturday, I went on a train ride with my wife. Rather than taking our car to Manila, we opt to just take the LRT2.  I brought my Fuji X100T so I can take some photos on the way.  I am really amazed with how the camera lets me focus on my shot and not the technicality of shooting.  Metering is spot on.  Focusing is fast. Shutter lag is almost gone. Working with the OVF is way better than my X-Pro1.  Dials and buttons are placed correctly which allows me to adjust settings without removing my eye from the OVF.  It is silent and not flashy since I got the black X100T. Although I still can’t figure out how to turn it to Silent mode like my X-Pro1.  Holding the disp/back button doesn’t work. Anyways, still learning a lot from my camera.

Here are some of my shots.

Rainy day with a Fujifilm X100T

I went out today to return a lens I borrowed from Fujifilm Philippines.. Amazing lens program! Kudos to Fujifilm Philippines.. While I was on my way there, it was raining.. What a perfect time to shoot some photos using my weather sealed Fuji X100T! (weather sealing is by keeping it in my bag..haha)  I am testing out the OVF of the X100T which is amazing! Focusing is fast. Metering is great. Classic Chrome is awesome. Coming from an X-Pro1, it was a completely different experience.  Fast, silent and compact.  I think the X100T will always be in my bag.

Here are some shots I took today. Photos are jpeg from camera and was just resized in Lightroom.
