The X-T100 is still pretty new. I like that camera. It seems to be a little more compact than the other models like X-E3, X-T10/20. It´s only a smidgen but it´s always a ride on a razor blade to have a comfortable and safe feeling for the grip and not to have a large and bulky housing.
I tried it with a lot of lenses and the heavier they are the more raises the fear of dropping. In many cases I don´t use a strap. Perhaps it would reduce my anxiety. But let´s have a look what could be a second option: a very light and small grip, perfect integrated in the design of the camera!
Congratulation to Fuji X-T100
Now we have a new camera to regard – Fuji X-T100. First impressions are brilliant. Good camera at a good price-performance ratio! We are certain – there will be a lot of admirers for this model. Perhaps only as back-up camera but so what? And Tekiac is also ready to improve old manners of typical problems. Where is the eyecup?
The last holiday I took my new X-E3 with me. For sure, it´s a fantastic camera, but it needs not much time and I was disappointed because of the missing eyecup. I was photographing with a lot of sun and light around me. Best weather for great moments which I want to catch. Ok perhaps I am a fool because it´s not the first time and I am no beginner in photographing. But now I have verified that it´s not possible to shoot without an eyecup. I love to use manual lenses and focos peaking. Regardless of the peak colour you cannot see it anymore.
Always using one hand to cover the light… no way! More particularly if you are shooting manually because you need your hand to focus the lens. So one hand covers the light, the other one turn the focus… but my tongue is not long enough for the trigger!
In X-T10/20 class of course there is an optical viewfinder, but what´s about a eyecup? I prefer phototgraphing with an eyecup. No annoying reflections and you can concentrate on the essentials – namely photographing. We were recherching on the internet but find no adequate product for our requirements.
Ergo – DIY (Do it yourself)! Read more
