My good friend and fellow street photographer Tom Kaszuba just informed me that Fujifilm has their FinePix x100 Sample Photos live on their site. I have taken the liberty of showing you some photo samples which show how awesome a camera it can be for street photography with its pancake 35mm f/2 lens. Keep reading to see more pictures of the camera, as well as the hot and new sample photos!
If you haven’t been keeping up with the news of the Fujifilm FinePix x100, it is essentially the holy grail of camera for street photography (other than getting a $6900 Leica M9). When it comes out, it is estimated to cost around $1000 (not super cheap, but much more affordable than the Leica). With a hybrid viewfinder which is optical and digital, manual dials on top, and an old-school look– FujiFilm has a winner. This might be the camera that replaces my Canon 5D.
You can also check out the rest of the photos here.
Although I know that it definitely isn’t the camera who makes the street photographer, this definitely looks like an ideal bang-for-the-buck digital camera for street photography.
So what is your take on the camera? Do you think it is going to be a game-changer or a dud? Leave your comments below!
