Fujifilm X100S : My 2013 Personal Favorite Pictures

Salam and Good Day !

Since I first laid my eyes and tried to use my brother’s Fuji X100 last 2 years , I cannot forget that particular special feeling about the camera. Within the small, compact, retro-designed body , lies some of the great technology that enables many photographers around the world to notice this tiny beast.

Of course there are some minor flaws using the X100 ( you guys can read it in other detailed camera review blogs/ websites) , but the overall combination of the size and the technologies enables some of us to greatly multiply our chances to make more and more photographs.

After many months of many comparison studies , finally in January 2013 I bought the upgraded version of this camera : The Fujifilm X100S. Some of the major flaws in the previous version has been greatly improved ( especially the speed of the autofocus and the start up time ) . Some additional features also have been added such as the new manual focus aid : Digital Split Image and Focus Peaking.

And yes, many other improvements.

And thus, began the greatest love story between me and my Fuji X100S throughout 2013. This small wonder accompanied me trough the streets of Kuala Lumpur, during family gatherings, endured the coldness in South Korea, hanging strong while I endured the bustling crowd of Pasar Baru Bandung, being a friend during my coffee and cendol breaks , speedy boat rides in Langkawi Island and many many more places.

And in my personal  opinion, the best thing to compliment this wonderful images from this camera, is by using the VSCO Film pack for the post processing.

The result is phenomenal. Absolutely mind blowing.

So my friends, I present to you, my 2013 personal favorite pictures.

by super tag-team : Me, Fujifilm X100s and VSCO Film.
