Présentation de l'éditeur

The Fujifilm X100S is a digital camera with a 23mm fixed prime lens. It is intended for amateurs to semi-professionals who want a camera that allows them to make great images faster and with less hassle than any other digital camera.

While the camera manual explains what the camera can do, it doesn’t show exactly how to use the camera to create great images! That’s where Fujifilm X100S: From Snapshots to Great Shots comes in. Starting with the top ten things users need to know about the camera, author Kevin Mullins carefully guides readers through the operating features. Readers get practical advice from a pro on which settings to use when, great shooting tips, and end of chapter assignments.

From Snapshots to Great Shots is a beautiful how-to photography series that provides the perfect blend of instruction, inspiration, and reference for specific camera models and photography concepts. Featuring a clear, elegant design; outstanding images that educate and inspire; and a friendly, accessible voice, this series helps photographers get great shots every time they pick up their camera.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Une tres bonne introduction a la photographie 23 juillet 2014
Par HmJ TOP 1000 COMMENTATEURS
Format:Broché
Le X100s est un boitier magique qui vaut la peine de prendre le temps d'apprivoiser. Et ceci s'applique aussi a son predecesseur, le X100, qui n'est nullement demode et pour qui l'essentiel de cet ouvrage est egalement valide.

Le photographe Kevin Mullins, dont le travail consiste essentiellement en des reportages photo de mariages, propose ici un excellent ouvrage, bien plus riche que le manuel utilisateur et qui saura parler au debutant ou a ceux ayant besoin de rafraichir leurs connaissances techniques de photo numerique. Beaucoup de conseils et d'explications en details sont donnes pour que chacun puisse faire le bon choix dans la bonne situation. J'apprecie aussi beaucoup cette collection From snapshots to great shots car elle permet a l'auteur de detailler les choix techniques et de composition pour de nombreuses photos d'exemples.

Fujifilm est, de mon point de vue, la premiere marque qui a pense ses interfaces pour eviter a l'utilisateur la lecture de ses manuels. Ou est-ce peut-etre a force d'en avoir essaye tant... Toutefois, je pense que cet ouvrage saura trouver sa place chez tout utilisateur de X100/X100s.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A very good photography guide for X100s owners 28 juin 2014
Par A Family Physician - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
"Fujifilm X100S: From Snapshots to Great Shots," by Kevin Mullins is a very good photography guide targeted towards owners of the Fuji X100S. It is not really a camera manual, as it doesn't exhaustively detail every feature, every setting, or every menu option, but it covers all the important aspects of this great camera in a manner that compliments the User Guide that comes in the box.

It is hard to say that this book is better than the other two guides available for this camera ("The Complete Guide to Fujifilm's X100s Camera (B&w Edition)," actually titled "Fujifilm's X100S Camera: Professional Insights for Experienced Shooters," by Tony Phillips and "Photographer's Guide to the Fujifilm X100S: Getting the Most from Fujifilm's Advanced Digital Camera," by Alexander S White), as its focus is different, but it is certainly much more successful at achieving its intended goal than those other two books, which are hobbled by significant flaws, which I detail in separate reviews (follow the links above). I would rate this guide at a 4-4.5 out of 5 stars.

If you are an amateur photographer who just purchased a Fuji X100S with the intention of learning the fundamental concepts of photography (shutter speed, aperture, ISO, depth of field), understanding the various types of images (portrait, landscape, street/candid), and studying approaches to photographic composition, then this guide is for you. It is like a really good basic to early advanced photography course designed around the Fuji X100S camera. But if you a maturing photographer who is well past the beginner stage, who is adept at using a camera in manual mode, and for whom the rule of thirds is very old news, then you might find this book too basic to be useful.

While it doesn't try to cover every aspect of the X100S, this guide does try to explain all the most important functions and settings. The descriptions of many of the camera's features are done in context, for example the use of the built-in neutral density (ND) filter is explained in the chapter on landscape photography, and the different metering modes are explained in the chapter on portrait photography. This is not really a problem, but it does mean that when you have questions about various aspects of the camera, you would better refer to the index than the table of contents. Fortunately, this book has a thorough index to help you find the answers you are looking for.

The book is a comfortable read, and the text is well-edited with very few typographical errors. The writing style is relaxed without being too chummy, and technical without being overly complex or wordy. The text is organized well, with brief introductory chapters that get you going quickly and subsequent chapters on clearly defined subjects such as portrait photography, landscape photography, lighting techniques, advanced X100S features, etc. What really stands out about this book, especially compared to the other available guides for the X100S, is the size, quantity, quality and educational value of all the images. A few photographs are perhaps just fair to good, but the majority range from very good to excellent. They are laid out tastefully and in generous sizes. Every image is accompanied by a legend with the basic camera settings used (shutter speed, aperture, ISO, focal length); too many camera guides don't reveal such details. Even better, quite a few also have notes on the choices made by the author in technique and/or image composition. Rather than just a display of the quality of the camera or the cleverness of the author/photographer, it feels like this book's images are all a part of the learning process.

There are a few minor problems with this guide. First, while it touches on a wide range of topics, at times the discussion feels a little thin. For examples, the description of the use of flash really doesn't go into much detail, and so this important concept doesn't feel well fleshed out; the critical question of white balance is barely touched on, which is surprising given the target audience; and while Film Simulations are mentioned and the author shows how to select them, there is almost no explanation of the individual Film Simulations (What is Velvia, and how does it differ from Astia? When would you use PRO Neg. Hi?) other than the demonstration of Sepia in the chapter on portrait photography, and Sepia is a simulation that many photographers would consider the most trite and least useful of all of them. Second, some of the frustrating quirks and oddities of the X100S are not well spelled out. This camera can sometimes inexplicably refuse to take a shot, and the other guides (notably the guide by White), do a better job of explaining these issues.

Overall, this is a very good photography guide for users of the Fujifilm X100S camera, which perhaps was a bit overly long in coming out. The extra time taken was put to good use, as the quality of the text and imagery far outstrip the other two available guides.

Note: this review is of the 2014 paperback edition, which covers firmware version 1.10.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Worthy companion guide for ALL X100S photographers - get this if you love your X100S 23 juin 2014
Par AwesomeSauce - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This is a fine guide for anyone looking to become a better photographer with the X100S. I'd recommend this book for beginner to intermediate photographers and all owners of the X100S.

This latest entry follows suit in the excellent "From Snapshots to Great Shots series". Ever wonder how certain super interesting photos were taken? Well that's what you'll learn from this book. It will show you examples of various photos and give details of how the shot was done: from exposure settings to positioning and panning with the body for some of those cool motion blur shots. Best of all, this isn't just a regular photography technique book since it was written specifically for the X100S. If you already own the X100S, you know how different the operational paradigm is. For instance, the X100s doesn't employ the standard (M A S P / M Av Tv P) priority mode settings dial you see on every DLSR these days. This is exactly why all us X100S are enamored with this little machine. This is not a solely instructional guide -- it also teaches a little bit of exposure theory but makes the concepts much easier to synthesize because it's all tied back directly to practical X100S camera operation. In short, this book is the perfect combination between a boring but comprehensive camera manual and a too-abstract photography concept book.

WHO IT'S FOR
I'd recommended this book for beginner to intermediate level photographers and for all owners of the X100s, new to old. I myself am pretty new to manual photography but have been playing with point-and-shoot photography for over 20 years. I've only really started using manual exposure in the last two years. Despite owning several DSLRs for close to 10 years, I've always shot auto. Getting the X100S really forced me (in a great way) to start experimenting with manual aperture and shutter speed photography. This book really helped close the gap between exposure theory and practical camera handling. I've owned the X100S for 14 months already and am now still happily learning new features and techniques that I've glossed over in other publications because this book does a much better job and bringing them to the practical forefront.

INSTRUCTION MANUAL?
This book picks up where the included User Manual leaves off. I've personally read the User Manual cover to cover. There's no doubt that the included manual makes a decent reference. But let's face it -- reading a didactic reference manual rarely teaches how to actually use a camera. The User Manual covers all features of the camera, but you'll certainly encounter many that you won't even know how you'd ever need in a practical situation. This book goes about it the other way. It presents photographs and shooting situations, and then tells you which camera features to use. It's a very different approach. It also goes more into depth with some of the functions that the Fuji manual may spend on a few sentences explaining quickly, such as the Neutral Density filters, bracketing, and dynamic range.

ACCESSORIES
The book has a few examples using the Fujifilm WCL-X100 Wide-Angle Conversion Lens. I personally don't own the lens, but this would be very welcome by owners of this attachment.

COMPLAINTS
It's a minor quibble, but I think the production quality of this book would have become even better if the author could get better screenshots of the UI and viewfinder views. The screenshots look like they were taken with a secondary camera instead of being a true native screen capture. It would increase the already-great production quality of this book just a little bit. Several other X100/X100S books I've read have really great looking camera screen captures. I have no idea how they managed it.

OTHER X100S/X100 BOOKS I OWN
I've read most of the other X100/X100S manuals out there and can still handily recommend this one. One reason for it is the great tutorial format here that is somewhat unique to this book. The other is the fact that this is very current. If you've owned Fuji cameras for a while, you'll appreciate the fact that Fuji regularly makes firmware updates that improve and add new functionality to their cameras. The X100S has quite a few changes since its launch 14 months ago and it's truly an advantage that this book is up to date. I also own:
Photographer's Guide to the Fujifilm X100S by Alexander White
Photographer's Guide to the Fujifilm FinePix X100 by Alexander S. White
Mastering the Fuji X100 by Michael Diechtierow

There's definitely a place for this book in your arsenal regardless of which books you already own. The Kindle price is also very good so this makes it a sound investment for anyone who wants to get more out of your camera.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 best of the x100s books! 31 juillet 2014
Par James W. Huffman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I've owned the x-pro1 and xt1 and can't believe it took me so long to migrate to the d100s. But having done so, I love it? I bought and downloaded all the books on the x100 and x100s. I read the others first, and guess I saved the best for last. This book is both comprehensive, yet easy to understand. It is very organized, describing a function/feature, with illustrations, communicating the advantages or disadvantages of a setting, providing pictures that demonstrate the results of the setting, and finally, providing assignments to reinforce what was taught. And, everything was written without typos, or references to other cameras! Of course you say? But honestly, one of the books is read discussed locking the mirror up - obviously copied from a section on dslrs! Not this book. From start to finish, this book was conceived and written with one camera in mind - the x100s. If you own the camera, buy this one book!

Written by a great photographer. The author really has used this camera in lots of real situations. His recommendations for setting are solid. I am not a novice photographer and I got a lot out of this book. You should also look at his website.

Very useful book. I have a Fujifilm X-E1 and am interested in buying the X100S. This book gives very clear information on the operation of the X100S. I would buy more books from this author, Kevin Mullins.
