Answers To The Questions (You Might Have)
Q: What’s so special about its viewfinder?
As mentioned earlier, Fujifilm X100F offers a unique hybrid viewfinder. What it means is that it can work both inOVF and EVF.
And it’s made easy:
Basically you have a switch and you turn the Hybrid OVF into a full fledged EVF.
The electronic viewfinder (EVF):
Displays the image with the same brightness and color that you’ll see on the photo, though in low light conditions it might show a bit of digital noise.
The optical viewfinder (OVF):
Provides a bright and clear picture in any shooting conditions, but it’s impossible to track the correct exposure and white balance on it.
Q: What can you say about the lens?
This camera features a 35mm equiv. f/2 fixed lens.
This means that you can rely on its confident work in low-light situations and you’ll have a nice background blur.
This fixed 35mm camera lens can be seen as a restriction in a sense that you can’t zoom in, for example, toshoot some sports events, but this focal length is sort of a benchmark for street and documentary photography.
Because 35mm focal length most closely resemble the perspective of the human eye.
And that’s why Fujifilm X100F is considered to be one of the best street/travel photography cameras available on the market.
Q: What photography styles is this camera for?
Like I said earlier, X100F is great for high quality street photography.
Its fast f/1.7-2.8, 24-75mm, Leica DC zoom lens and a M43 sensor are a steal.
For comparison purposes, the price of Canon 24-70 mm f/2.8 lens ALONE is twice as much as the whole LX100 compact.
Keep in mind:
It has a challenging menu system and it might take you some time to figure out how to set it up. While this camera is very customizable, it’s something that beginner photographers might have a hard time with.
But if you’re familiar with manual controls, Lumix LX100 is a AWESOME.

Below I will have frequently asked questions answered.
Q: How’s the image quality?
While you shouldn’t expect the same level of IQ as in high-end full frame cameras, Lumix LX100 still offers great quality.
(Even in low-light conditions).
You should keep in mind that it’s still a 4/3 sensor camera, so it can’t be pushed too much. I’d say you can go up to ISO 3200 without seeing much noise.
Either way, you’ll be satisfied.
