I'm in love with the Fuji X100s

I've been planning to write a post about how much I miss shooting an all manual film camera ever since I found some wonderful prints from several years ago that had a quality that I feel like I've lost somewhere. I was trying to think what is different now, shooting digitally, that I don't perceive the same quality in my photography. I think it's two things mainly, but that is a post for a different day. 

Long story short, I decided to Jump on Fujifilm's nostalgia train and rent an X100s for two weeks. Here are my selects from day one, along with some of the things I love about this camera.

 The Fuji X100s brings professional control in an intuitive and nostalgic design, that makes incredible snapshots of your daughter smiling very very easy.

 The X100s is, for all intents and purposes, completely silent, and you can grab embarrassing candids of your friends at work.

 The X100s has incredible imaging power and all the control a professional needs to make great portraits of their follow photographers while waiting on the barista at Starbucks (shout out to Adam Queen!)

 The X100s is a rangefinder camera, and that means no mirror to slap up and vibrate the camera when taking a handheld selfie at 1/15th(!!!) of a second.

 Again, the X100s is virtually silent and that means catching life's tender moments without disturbing your subject.
