Fuji X100 first impressions review

105th @ F8, 800 ISO. Focus preset at 3m 

I've owned the new Fuji Finepix X100 for about a week now and think I have a pretty good idea of how it performs and thought it was about time to post my first impressions. I'm no camera reviewer so I won't be posting performance graphs and crops displaying sharpness comparisons and artifacts (what are they again ?) but will purely describe in simple terms how the camera has handled now that I'm used to it and how happy I am with it's handling and image quality .

London Fashion Week

London Fashion Week has been and gone once again until later in the year and along with the daily slog of shooting the straight up and down catwalk images for the newspaper I also managed to have a bit of fun along the way seeing old friends and soaking up the general atmosphere of a world so completely different to any other.

Up until a few years ago I used to cover the majority of the shows in Milan, Paris, London and occasionally New York for over a decade, but with the recession and budget cuts at the British newspapers this has now come to an end for the Fleet Street contingent of catwalk photographers.
