Lets not forget the X100T or Monochrome

Since we have the arrival of the new Fujifilm X100F there has been a lot of hype around the web as per usual with any new camera release. Sayings like “the Acros mode is just absolutely fantastic with amazing tonality, and light-level-based grain control!” (we already felt this way once before when the X100T was released with the new classic chrome), and Fuji go and do it again to us with the X100F introducing the Acros film simulation with grain!

There probably a few X100 die hards out there feeling a bit insecure that there is a better, more handsome and smoother performing replacement out there. I often see many people justifying that their current camera is still good, or its not enough of a change to trade up. Perhaps its not, Perhaps i’m as insecure about the new X100F as you are. But here is one reason to celebrate with the one you already have in your hand!

One thing I know after using a few black and white 35mm films is that the Fujifilm Monochrome simulation has never failed to disappoint me in the X100 cameras.

I’ve really been enjoying shooting film on my Nikon F3 lately so I wanted to see if like many people say you can, just shoot Jpeg and be happy with the images & also pay homage to the original monochrome simulation that has just been pushed under the rug since Acros in the new Fujifilm releases. I spent a couple of days just shooting in monochrome and jpeg only, so what you see here is straight off the X100T camera.

So here are 24 exposures of Fujifilm Monochrome straight out of camera.

  1. Hi there. Just bumped into your blog for the first time and it’s a great read. I especially like your article about getting rid of all your Fuji gear in favour of the X100T, because that’s exactly what I’m contemplating right now. I just can’t decide if I want to get a used X100T, or go all out with the X100F for peace of mind.

    I’m not sure if I missed it in any of your posts, but have you tried the X100F yet? If so, how do you like it? And what is stopping you from upgrading to it?

    Keep up the great work!

    1. Hi Chris, i’ve only held the X100f and it definitely is noticeably heavier and more solid feeling. A friend has had them all and now the F but is complaining about how many buttons it has now, new scroll wheel on front plus the rear one which push in as well, new viewfinder lever button etc. I think im with him in saying it should be simplified in the future, similar to what leica have done. My X100t is only about 1 year old now (to me), so i will possibly skip this F release and see what happens in the next generation, I would love the new 24mp sensor but otherwise im happy with the T and have been suprised with the image quality mostly even coming from the 23 1.4 xf lens. I cant justify the big jump in cost for the sensor and some improved speed and thats it really as id end up paying $1200 nzd to do the upgrade.
