I was out on a walk today, just out and about the neighborhood (no epic trek through exotic lands!). Not long after I had begun, it started to rain. It wasn’t a heavy rain, which was good. I wasn’t really dressed for that – T-shirt and cargo shorts.
I had my Fuji X100 with me and since weatherproofing is not one of it’s bragging rights I was thinking about how I would keep it from getting wet. While the X100 is not as big as a typical DLSR it’s still bigger than a compact or point-and-shoot, so it’s not small enough to fit in a shirt pocket, or even normal pants pockets. But, I found out today it pretty easily fits in the cargo pocket of my cargo shorts. I was using the small lens hood so I had to remove that first, but then it slipped right in, safe from the rain.
The Fuji X line is my favorite among the mirrorless offerings these days, but there are so many cameras now that have pretty good size sensors in a smaller body. And the image quality is really fantastic. I didn’t get the X100s yet. Probably won’t. Still satisfied and love shooting with the original X100. But I am interested in seeing whatever is coming in the next upgrade. I would love to see a full frame sensor added to this camera. Even if they had to increase the body size a little, I wouldn’t mind a bit.
A shot of a wise old tree I got before things got too wet.
