Photographic bling!

After hiring a Fuji X100V back in November I decided it was the perfect walkabout camera for me and I eventually gave in and bought one. Over the last month I’ve been shooting with it almost exclusively – aside from the times when I’ve really needed a long lens or my pinhole camera.

While I’m still getting to grips with everything the X100V has to offer, I think it’s safe to say this is the prettiest camera I’ve ever owned. I thought I’d do a quick still life shoot with it this afternoon, capturing some of its lovely retro lines, buttons and dials.

Well our Fuji family is growing.  It is a wonderfull camera for many styles of photography. The Fuji sensors are great. I am sure you gonna enjoy it. The retro look is one of the reason I jumped into Fuji;

Interesting irony to take such beautiful shots of your wonderful new camera...with another.  😉

Welcome to the Fuji family!👍.  I thought about getting one like yours but ended up with an XT20 which serves as my street camera and a backup to my XT2.  Love the Fuji systems!

The X100-series has always been a favorite of mind, and for some good reasons; these cameras produce wonderful images, they're beautifully designed and are engaging to use. For those that have been eyeing some or other version of X100 over the years but never taken the plunge, this latest model is arguably the one to get. Great images!!

Very beautiful images from a fantastic camera. I got the first generation (X100) in 2011. Although the camera had a few teething problems back then, I still love it. After a short excursion into the Canon world, Fuji gave me back direct control over aperture and shutter speed, just like I was used to in analogue photography. The same "look and feel" as with my Contax SLR cameras. I have stayed with Fuji to this day. Have fun with this wonderful camera!

Hi Helen, I purchased one recently, and although I have been shooting a lot of film, the few times I have had time to play with mine I am just amazed by the features, amazed by the image quality and as a rangefinder lover just love the way the thing handles. Enjoy, I plan to shoot a lot this year with mine!
