Marks got his hands on a pre-production X100s and X20 and discusses what he likes about each as well as the advantages of mirrorless camera systems in general and why he chose to use Fuji X-Series cameras instead of his DSLR system. Enjoy!
My 2 Cents
For those of you who are regular readers here on MirrorlessCentral, you know that that he’s not exactly covering any ground that we haven’t already trod here in this space. He’s just another in a long line of pro-togs who are discovering that smaller, lighter, less expansive but equally powerful and technologically advanced mirrorless camera systems are now able to do the same jobs as their larger and bulkier DSLR cousins, in many cases even better.
These new Fuji compact cameras are built on the success and popularity or their predecessors, the X-10 and X-100, and the new X-Trans II Sensors and EXR II Processing technology build upon the amazing image quality delivered by first generation X-Trans/EXR Tech and add improved high ISO performance and lightning fast autofocus into the mix. Combined with the fact that Fuji also make superb lenses means that with the X-20 and X-100s, Fuji now have powerful and enticing entries in the enthusiast and pro-sumer fixed lens compact camera arena.
