It’s questionable depending on the point of view, but one less frustration was taken away from Fuji X100 users. The first firmware was released and while the instructions were confusing for some and the version number is either a .01 or .10, it did provide a fix:
- If the images are shot with ISO Bracketing mode when “QUICK START MODE”(*1) is set to “ON” and turn off the camera, the camera cannot be turned on again even with ordinary operation.
Patrick La Roque + Fuji X100 + SB-900 = great set of images synced at 1/1000s showing what the ‘beast’ can do.
The NYTimes (via David Pogue) has published their review.
It’s a different take from the other reviews; focusing on the handling of the camera which Pogue has a lot to say about. The human experience is always something that is apparent in his reviews. I won’t go to Pogue for camera tests, but Pogue certainly knows what he wants from the gadgets he reviews. One thing I did want to pick up on was his comment about how the Fuji is a ‘baffling’ design.
I wouldn’t say the X100 is ‘baffling’, instead logical. It’s been clear for some time now the photography market is trying to evolve, and move cameras away from being an black box. If it takes us back towards Rangefinder cameras, it simply means digital has finally caught up with those previous designs on the aesthetic front. Leica themselves have only achieved what many have wanted for years; a full frame digital rangefinder. I only expect more of the same.
