    Just wondering if anyone had an experience using the new X-T100, its a new entry level of Fujifilm.

    It’s a decent entry level mirrorless camera. Better than the xa5 because it has a viewfinder. But I’m still leaning towards the xt20.

    If you can swing the budget get the X-t20 or X-E3

    X-T3 rumors are pouring in. But the most exciting news is that it will be cheaper than the X-T2 when it launched!!

    Recently got an original banged up 1984 Tokai Strat.

    Thanks to the Sony Full Frame Mirrorless, seems people are letting go of their Fuji X systems and got a barely used X100F.

    Fun stuff!

    yeah, and they need to lower the pricing of all their previous models and lenses! ;)

    I recently got a 10-24mm lens. I was initially waiting for the 8-16mm but as soon as I learned the price I changed my mind. Hahaha. I’ll probably stick with my current camera, the X-T20. I rather buy a new lens than a new body.

    The X-T3 at $1500 body only is a great buy! People will still complain about it not having IBIS though which I do understand. They added so much video capabilities on the X-T3 yet did not add one of the most requested feature which is IBIS. I don't think it has something to do with IBIS having to add extra weight and size on the camera because Sony has IBIS on most of it's camera and it's really not significantly bigger or heavier than the X-T3. I'm guessing it more of a business strategy of having a separate model with a focus on video (X-H1).

    the x-t3 is indeed good value but i'll probably hold out from getting it and just wait for the x-pro3. hopefully this time around since they'll be releasing it after the x-t3, they won't skimp on the features like on the x-pro2.

    my personal wishlist:
    - evf with either 0.75x/0.77x magnification and 23mm eyepoint like the gfx 50r/x-t3
    - ael/afl button locations and af-on function from the gfx 50r and x-t series (for back button focus)
    - 3-way tilting touch lcd from the x-t3
    - dual sd card slots, both uhs-ii like the gfx 50r/x-t3
    - all-metal dials like the x-pro2
    - x-processor 4 and all the firmware features of the x-t3
    - support for the bigger capacity np-t125 battery of the gfx series (if they can fit it in the grip portion)

    The xt100’s tilt screen mechanism is unfortunately better than the xt3.

    The Fuji X100F has just proven itself to me as the near perfect small set up travel camera. I also discovered the beauty of using the WCL which allowed me to include more things in my shots. I was worried that it's lack of weather sealing might "kill" it. But there was one day during my trip that it rained moderately hard and as much as I tried to protect it, it got soaked by the rain, yet it didn't miss a beat and kept on clicking, still I wish it had proper weather sealing just to put my mind at ease. I also wish there was an option for an even wider WCL because there were few occasions where I wish I had a wider angle lens on it and not just the 28mm of the WCL but that's just a minor nit pick on my part. The fact that it is small and light means I took it with me everywhere and I shoot with it more. After almost 2 years with this, I still believe it is worth its weight in gold!

    All images were uploaded to the iPad Pro 11", edited there via Lightroom CC then uploaded to FB via the iPad. This is what I call travel light :)

    Here are some images from my trip..

    Fujifilm X-T3 is one of the best current models in its class!

    Hello, planning to buy my first ever mirrorless camera and setting my sights on the XT20. What is your opinion on 4k video recording capability of it? And which is the better lens kit for 42k, XC15-45 or XC16-50? Thanks in advance.
