Descriptions du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

This book is a complete guide to the operations, features, menus, and controls of the Fujifilm X100S camera. The book covers topics such as autofocus, manual focus, depth of field, aperture priority, shutter priority, HDR (high dynamic range) photography, and macro photography. It also includes discussions of the camera’s special features, including its “hybrid” optical and electronic viewfinder system.

The book’s more than 300 photographs, in full color when viewed on a color device, illustrate the camera’s controls and menus, and include examples of photographs using the creative settings of the camera, including the Film Simulation settings; menu options such as Dynamic Range, Shadow Tone, and Highlight Tone; the Advanced Filter settings, with effects such as Toy Camera, Dynamic Tone, and Miniature; and continuous shooting.

In addition, the book introduces topics such as infrared photography, street photography, and astrophotography, and it includes a full discussion of the video recording abilities of the X100S, which can record high-definition (HD) video with stereo sound.

In three appendices, the book describes accessories available for the camera, gives a list of web sites and other resources for further information, and includes “quick tips” with insights into using the camera’s features efficiently.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Very good guide - ultra complete - huge work ! 19 février 2014

This book is an very complete guide for the Fujifilm X100s.
Even if the information given is based on 1.03 firmware version, I think it's still 98% relevant if you have the latest version (1.10)
Alexander White explains simply and clearly whatever one may wonder about the X100s. I cannot see a related topic which is not explained with pedagogy.
100+ images (screen capture, photos...) are given to illustrate the prose.
If you own a X100s, I bet you will enjoy a lot this guide (and even if you don't own it, general photography explanations are valuable)
Merci beaucoup Alexander !

Par A Family Physician - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
"Photographer's Guide to the Fujifilm X100S" by Alexander S White does not live up to the raves some of the 4 and 5 star reviewers have given it. To its credit, the book does an adequate job of going through the menus and clarifying the various functions of the Fuji X100S. It is perhaps better than Fuji's owner's manual, but falls far short of what it could be.

[Update: Two other guides to the X100S are now available: "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 "Fujifilm X100S: From Snapshots to Great Shots," by Kevin Mullins. I have reviewed those books as well, and this is the least successful of the three. For details, see my reviews of the other guides by clicking the links above.]

I have some sympathy for the authors of camera guides. These books have to keep everyone engaged. One can't assume much knowledge about photographic basics or the novice will be lost. Yet on the other hand, one can't spend too much time on the basics or the more advanced readers will be bored. With this guide, once the author gets past explaining the basic concepts and describing the X100s controls, menus and functions, very little time is spent on how to use this great camera to create beautiful images. Only part of Chapter 9 and one brief appendix contain information of much use for users above the novice level. If you already know what aperture priority mode is and why it is so important, do not get this book--you are far too advanced to get much benefit from it. Still, this guide is helpful by explaining some of the idiosyncrasies of this camera, which can simply refuse to do things without any explanation why. The book also benefits from a thorough index, which the owner's manual does not have.

The most glaring flaws in this guide are the text and the images. The writing in this guide can be at times formal, other times a bit too informal, often repetitive, and most of the time kind of dull. Frequently, it gets hung up on technicalities and details. The author tends to over explain things, making difficult concepts and features even more difficult to understand. But it's a manual, so one can't be too hard on the author. Where the book really lets the reader down is the pictures. Photography is about using light to create images, and photography books should have great images. If a reader's first exposure to the Fuji X100S was through this book, they would be discouraged from getting one, as they would be left with the distinct impression that all the camera can generate is dull and lifeless images. This book has a few good photographs (the two on the front cover and the one on the back are far and away the best of all of them), but the rest are boring, poorly composed, or just plain bad. Many of the photos seem to be of knickknacks and other items dragged from the author's basement closet (a mannequin head with scraggly hair, a bell, a toy truck, a peacock figurine, a plastic horse...) photographed in front a cheesy photo backdrop or a drab grey sheet. The two photographs used to demonstrate depth of field are quite poor, and actually make one wonder if they do anything to help a beginner understand the concept. To compare the effects of the various Film Simulations, a scene of mostly green trees around a lake is used--not at all a good way to portray the differences between the Film Simulations in color saturation and contrast. In addition, the Film Simulation sample images are barely bigger than thumbnails, making them all but worthless for comparison. To "demonstrate" how the Red Eye Removal option worked, the author simply taped red dots on the eyes of a mannequin head(!?). What comes across from the barely edited text and slapdash images is the distinct impression that the author was working hastily in order to get this book out as soon after the release of the X100S as possible.

If there aren't any other books for the X100S available, and you really can't make much headway with the Owner's manual, especially if you are quite new to photography, then this book might be of some help. But at least save your money and get the cheaper Kindle version ($10 a the time this review was written), as otherwise you are not getting good value for the price. As a supplement, or perhaps an alternative, I would suggest looking around online, reading Fuji user forums, and studying the reviews on the Digital Photography Review and the Ken Rockwell websites. DPReview and Rockwell spent a lot more time using the X100S to create stunning and beautiful photographs and thus more clearly demonstrate its features.

Note: this review is based on the Kindle version of the book. The text isn't any different, but there is the very doubtful possibility that the images look much better on paper. Even then, the problems with subject and composition would remain.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent Guide Clearly Written 12 décembre 2013
Par R. Budin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Excellent guide, written in clear language, that covers almost every facet of camera operation. Before receiving the x100s I read through the online manual and took notes for all the important sections. Still, it was not enough. After receiving the camera I had no idea why Program mode failed to display program choices or why aperture and shutter speed sometimes, but not always, displayed in the OVF before a half press of the shutter. Thanks to this book, much was cleared up. Both beginners and advanced photographers can benefit. Unlike the manual, reading through the book is painless. Many clear photographs of camera settings and camera shots illustrate the author's points.
Shooting and Setup menus of the camera are discussed in surprising depth, but a few quirks on focusing were omitted: The technique of "mashing the shutter" while in autofocus is very useful in fast street photography. The larger the focus frame size the faster the camera focuses, although a larger box will be less accurate and may cause the camera to back focus.
The Fuji x110s is a classic, and this book really helps one to get a clear handle on operations.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Book 14 décembre 2013
Par Franklin Miller - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I have both Michael Diechtierow book and Alexander White's book, but I must confess, I enjoy White's the most. Not only is updated, with quality information on the Fujifilm x100s, but it is much richer in content and has greater explanations throughout. I contacted both authors when I got my x100s and they both said they did not intend to update their earlier books. I was disappointed with both of them for not recognizing the difference between the two cameras and not updating their books with the wealth of changes the new camera presented. I am so glad White took my advise, it is much more than I expected. To be honest, I thought it would just be a rehash of the old book on the x100 with a few add-ons addressing the new x100s - but I was wrong - so wrong! Fuji should have hired him to write their manual. The only down side, and a small on at that, is the quality of the printing. It is not as nice as Diechierow's, which is a glossy mat with hires photos. If White went the extra mile and made a higher quality book, I'd score it 10/10. But, I'd rather have quality content any day that a fancy pretty book, so I'll score White's 9/10 and ignore the lower quality. Now it's time for Diechtierow to step up his game, read White's book, and try to produce something that exceeds White's book while making the readers the winners.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent. Clearly written. Has helped me enormously 11 avril 2014
Par T. MCCANN - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
One of the things that would make reviews more helpful is information about the intended audience for a book, so here goes. I am a reasonably knowledgeable amateur photographer. I have been photographing for 10 years on and off in both in film and digital. I understand most of the concepts in photography but I am new to the X100S.

This book has been a huge help. Not only does it cover all of the controls and menu settings in great detail, but very importantly it tells you when and why you should use a particular feature. The text is very well written. As a technical author myself, I am impressed by the clarity of writing. I haven't yet had to read a sentence twice.

Other reviews have mentioned that the book can be repetitive. This is true but in a good way; for example when discussing a menu setting, the author might mention that a physical control (knob, switch, etc) can be used in conjunction with that setting. Then when discussing the physical control, the author might mention the effect of some menu settings. This has served to consolidate my knowledge; at all times the repetition has been necessary and helpful.

If you are a professional photographer then you will not need this book; you can almost certainly figure it all out for yourself. If you are anywhere below that standard then this book is 100% necessary. I thoroughly recommend this book. Having spent nearly NZ$2000 on the camera I am determined to make full use of it.

Full marks to Alexander White. I wish all instruction manuals were written as clearly as this one.

When reading PHOTOGRAPHERS GUIDE TO THE FUJIFILM X100S, I kept coming back to one question: Is the author really good at explaining how this camera works or is the X100S so easy to understand that it doesn't require a lot of explanation. In the end, I decided that it was a combination of both.

Most second party guides are a rehash of the manual, while I found that Alexander White approached the process by dividing the book into a few chapters that get you started and then subsequently following up with chapters that go into detailed descriptions on how the various aspects of the camera work. In other words, you can read the first part and start shooting. Then when you are comfortable with the camera, you can return to the book and learn about it in greater detail.

I bought this in both the Kindle and paper format. Each has its advantages. The Kindle version has better pictures than the paper back because you are viewing digital photos in their native form. On the other hand, it's nice to be able to physically hold the manual and bookmark the old fashioned way when reading an instructional work.

Alexander writes in a conversational style that conveys the information in an easy to understand manner. I haven't read any of his manuals before, but would consider buying one if I bought another camera. Unfortunately for him, I think I have found the only digital camera I will ever need in the X100S.
