I can’t believe that it’s been almost exactly seven years since the original FinePix X100 was released.

Back then I was shooting with a DSLR system and when the X100 came along, it literally changed the way that I used cameras.

No longer were they tools just for shooting weddings and earning a living, they were now objects that I craved, that I embraced and that I loved to use outside of my commercial world.

I know the story behind the design and development of the FinePix X100.  I know to some it was seen as a huge risk.  But I think everybody who shoots with a Fujifilm camera, and to a certain extent, any mirrorless camera should be immensely grateful to the small team of 23 in Tokyo who, back in 2010, had the balls to run with this idea.

In the seven years, the X100 has migrated from a beautiful, if somewhat frustrating camera, to a design classic that is my preferred camera for a vast majority of my personal work and much of my professional work too.

I’ve used pretty much every camera in the X-Series, and it’s always the X100F that I return to when I want to just shoot.

I recently spent time in Prague with my wife and all I took with me was my Fuji X100F.  That’s it.  Nothing else and I even shot for the whole four days in “P Mode”.

It’s such a beautiful system and I’m very proud to have been an early adopter and continued user of the X100 range of cameras.

100 Family Snaps taken with the X100

Over the last few days, I’ve been trawling through my archives of personal family snaps that I’ve taken with the X100, the X100S, X100T & X100F.

I had over 10,000 images that I considered good enough to keep.

Of course, these are family snaps, nothing particularly arty about them and absolutely the most important thing is the memories for me and my family.

I used a nifty bit of computer jiggery-pokery to randomly extract 100 images.

See what I did?  100…. X100…..

Anyhow, here are the 100 family snaps, taken with my various Fujifilm X100 Cameras and in chronological order.

As mentioned, these are a randomly selected set of images from my personal family collection.  Of course, along the way, I’ve shot many other images with different Fuji cameras and my iPhone etc.  But for me, as much as this is a celebration of seven years of X100 it’s a celebration of my family and being able to keep on shooting them.

Fujifilm X100F ~ Still My Favourite Camera

I use, professionally, lots of cameras in the Fujifilm range.  The X-Pro2, X-T2 are my primary Wedding Photography cameras but the X100F is the camera that I use the most outside of “work”.

I’ve spoken about the camera so many time on this site that I’ll leave you to explore if you so wish.

However, I’ll leave you with a few more photo films, all based on my use of the X100 range of cameras.

As ever, please feel free to leave comments below or share this post.  I try and reply to all comments whenever I can.

And Finally….. Are you a Wedding Photographer?

I’ve spent the last year or so planning the first ever X-Weddings Conference.  It will be in Bath, England on the 12th & 13th of June.

We have a top lineup of speakers and you can learn more by heading over to https://www.x-weddings.co.uk
