      Full review

      Superficially, Fujifilm's X100S may seem like a minor update to its popular predecessor, the X100. But, below its smart, 'retro' styled exterior, some important changes have been made. The first is a new 16.3-megapixel APS-C X-Trans CMOS II sensor, which is installed without an optical low-pass filter. The second is improvements to the Hybrid Viewfinder system.

      The body of the new camera is almost identical to the X100, with the upper control deck and base plate cast from magnesium alloy and the front and rear panels metal  finished with leather accents that provide a secure grip. The front panel has a subtle grip moulding for the second finger. All control dials on the top panel have been fabricated from metal.

      The 23mm f/2 Fujinon lens is the same as the previous model's. It covers the same, modest wide viewing angle as a 35mm lens on a film camera. An in-lens leaf shutter supports flash synchronisation at the fastest shutter speeds and makes the camera relatively quiet to operate.

      Who's It For?
      Like its predecessor, the X100S has been designed for DSLR users who need a compact back-up camera. So, let's look at how well it's suited to specific tasks serious photographers might use it for.

      1. Landscape photography: The 35mm angle of view may not be wide enough to provide the dramatic coverage some landscape photographers desire. However, it's close to ideal for using vertically to capture a series of shots for panoramic stitching because it shouldn't introduce excessive distortions. A lens hood is a must for most landscape work.

      2. Portraits: Wide enough for environmental portraits but too short for head-and-shoulders shots. Too short, as well, for candids.

      3. Sports and Action: Only if you can get close enough and you probably won't be able to take close-ups of individuals.

      4. Close-ups and Macro: The close focusing limit of 10 cm precludes macro photography but should be fine for close-ups of larger subjects, such as pet portraits. However, you must use the EVF or monitor screen to frame and focus shots in order to avoid parallax error.

      5. Photojournalism and Street Photography: The camera is just small enough to be inconspicuous and the manual controls are easy to adjust on-the-fly, although you have to dive into the menu to change ISO settings. The threaded shutter release  allows use of a cable to trigger the camera's shutter inconspicuously. Superior low light performance allows high ISO settings to be used in poorly-lit situations but the lack of stabilisation may present problems.

      6. Indoor Photography: Depends on the subject and the photographer's approach. The 35mm lens may not be wide enough for cramped situations but the camera's low-light capabilities are a big plus.

      7. Architecture: Inherent barrel distortion and vignetting could present problems, although in-camera corrections are available.
      8. Wildlife: Although the lens focal length will be good for shooting large groups of animals in the medium distance, it can't get close enough for individual portrait or action shots.

      How Does it Handle?
       The X100's control system pleased many photographers and all the key features carry over to the new model. Only four shooting modes are provided: Program AE, aperture-priority AE, shutter-priority AE and manual exposure. As before, apertures are set with the ring around the lens and shutter speeds via the dial on the top panel – and both have 'A' positions for programmed automatic exposure control.

      Taking long exposures is tricky. When you choose the B setting the shutter remains open for up to 60 minutes, depending on the aperture setting and ambient light levels. When the aperture ring is set to the A position, the shutter speed is fixed at 30 seconds.

       If you want to use shutter speeds between these limits you have to select the T position. In this mode you can rotate the command dial around the arrow pad and select shutter speeds between 1/2 and 30 seconds in 1/3EV steps. Third-party cable releases can be used to trigger exposures or you can set the self-timer to two or 10-second delays.

      Like its predecessor, the rangefinder-style body of the X100s  is mostly metal, with metal control dials. The illustrations below show front, back and top views of the new camera.

      The 'hybrid' viewfinder is a big improvement on the X100's, although the optical finder is largely unchanged but with improved parallax correction that can adjust the framing guide for close-ups to within about 50 cm from the lens (the limit for 'normal' focusing. However, this framing guide only shows about 90% of the area captured by the sensor.

      The resolution of the EVF has been boosted to 2,360,000-dot, which is about double the resolution of the X100's 1,440,000 dot screen. An integrated prism enables it  to display shooting data overlaid on the scene. Fourteen functions can be displayed, including shutter speed, aperture, focusing distance, selected focusing point, exposure compensation, electronic level and histogram.

      The switch on the front panel makes it easy to swap between optical and electronic finder modes. In addition, a built-in eye sensor switches quickly from the rear monitor to the viewfinder when the camera is raised to your eye.

      The 'full frame' sensor puts the Sony RX1 in a class of its own and it's priced accordingly. The Nikon A has the same sized sensor as the X100S and the same resolution. But it lacks a viewfinder and its continuous shooting rate is slower. However, its higher monitor resolution, smaller body and lighter weight give it some advantages over the X100S.
       
      Sensor and Image Processing
      The  23.6 x 15.8 mm (APS-C sized) sensor is one of the new X-Trans CMOS chips that use a non-Bayer filter. It's been designed to minimise moire and false colour generation and eliminates the need for an optical low pass filter. Phase detection sensors (pixels) are embedded in the surface of the chip to enable the camera to use both phase- and contrast-detection for autofocusing.

       Fujifilm has apparently 'worked' with Adobe Systems  'to improve image processing of X-Trans and EXR-Sensor based raw captures'. It causes us to wonder why the decidedly ordinary Silkypix-based raw file converter is still bundled with the camera.

      Effective resolution has been increased to 16.3 megapixels and an updated EXR II Processor makes the camera a little more responsive. A 1:1 aspect ratio setting has been added to the X100's 3:2 and 16:9 options but otherwise file formats and image quality settings are the same as for the X100. Typical file sizes are shown in the table below.

      Although the sensitivity range has been extended, you can only access the full span when shooting JPEGS. For raw files, you're restricted to 200-6400 ISO (inclusive). We can't think why this should be because our Imatest testing backed up subjective assessments that raw files should deliver higher resolution than JPEGs across the sensor's sensitivity range.

      The two 'Motion Panorama' modes also deliver slightly larger files, with the 180-degree setting outputting vertical panoramas at 9600 x 2160 pixels and horizontal ones at 9600 x 1440 pixels. For the 120-degree setting, the file sizes are 6440 x 2160 pixels and 6400 x 1440 pixels, respectively.

      Video
      While the video capabilities of the X100S have been improved, they still aren't particularly impressive. The movie setting is still buried at the bottom of the drive mode options. But you can assign this function to the Fn button to make it quicker to access.

      The X100S can only record HD video clips with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels using progressive scanning and it only supports frame rates of 60 or 30 frames/second. Soundtracks are recorded in stereo and there's an upper limit of 14 minutes per movie.

      Recordings are triggered and stopped by pressing the shutter button. Focus, exposure and white balance are set automatically at the beginning of each each recording and the viewfinder defaults to the electronic mode.

      You can't access the peaking display and simulated split-screen aids for manual focusing in movie mode when using the viewfinder. Film Simulation settings can be used in movie mode, enabling users to record B&W movies.

      You can attach an external microphone to the camera's hot shoe to improve soundtrack recordings, as shown in the illustration below. The microphone recording level is also adjustable. But that's about as far as it goes.

      Playback and Software
      Nothing much has changed in either area. The bundled raw file converter is still Silkypix based. Fortunately, raw files from the X100S can be converted with Adobe Camera Raw v.7.4 and this was the converter we used in our tests.

      Performance
       The review camera's overall performance was as impressive as its predecessor's. Test shots were a little soft straight out of the camera and benefited from a little unsharp masking in Photoshop. The auto dynamic range setting visibly increased the amount of detail visible in shadow and highlight areas in shots but for subjects with extreme brightness ranges, highlight details were sacrificed in favour of recording details in shadows.

      Slight edge softening was revealed by our Imatest tests and it could be seen in shots taken with aperture settings of f/5.6 or smaller. However, Imatest showed the camera to be capable of above-average resolution for both JPEG and RAF.RAW files. The highest resolution was recorded at f/4, as shown in the graph below, which plots resolution across the camera's aperture range.            

       

      Resolution remained high throughout the review camera's sensitivity range. Raw files captured at ISO 6400 (the highest resolution available for raw files) were remarkably clean. The graph below shows the results of our Imatest tests on JPEG and RAF.RAW files.

       
       Little noise could be found in either long exposures or flash shots right up to ISO 12800, although softening could be seen in JPEGs recorded at the top two sensitivity settings and shots taken at ISO 25600 showed reduced edge sharpness and overall contrast. Flash exposures were well-balanced throughout most of the camera's ISO range, with roughly a stop of under-exposure at ISO 100. Ambient lighting influenced colour reproduction at settings above ISO 800.

      Lateral chromatic aberration was consistently negligible and we found no evidence of coloured fringing in test shots, even in areas silhouetted against a bright sky. In the graph below showing the results of our Imatest tests, the red line marks the border between 'negligible' and 'low' CA.

       
      Strong backlighting was handled very capably and the review camera was more flare-resistant than its predecessor. Small flare artefacts could be forced by pointing the camera at a bright source of light but their effect on contrast was very local.

      Like the X100, the new camera's auto white balance setting failed to eliminate the inherent colour casts of  both incandescent and fluorescent lighting, although it came very close with the latter. Good correction was provided by the pre-sets and manual measurement delivered accurate colour rendition. Plenty of adjustments are provided for correcting colour balance as you shoot.

      The phase detection pixels on the sensor have boosted autofocusing speeds and autofocusing was generally fast, particularly after dark. However, the multi-area mode wasn't always accurate when choosing which part of the frame to focus upon and often ignored near subjects that were off-centre in the frame.

      The phase-detection AF is effective in movie mode, enabling the camera to re-focus while a clip is being recorded. However, autofocusing in movie mode remained relatively slow, even when the continuous AF mode was used.

      Not unexpectedly, the X100S's video quality was slightly better than the X100's, although many of the same limitations remain to prevent the new camera from being a serious tool for video enthusiasts. Most noticeable among them is the lack of in-camera stabilisation.

      Audio quality was similar to the quality we obtained from the X100 in the 300 fps mode. The pitch dropped in the 60 fps mode, which records at half the normal speed. Some image sharpness appears to be sacrificed with this setting but we saw no evidence of the rolling shutter effect.

      Our timing tests were carried out with an 8GB SanDisk Ultra SDHCI  card, which boasts a data transfer speed of 30MB/second. The review camera took roughly one second to power-up, which is about three times faster than its predecessor.

      Capture lag averaged 0.1 seconds but with pre-focusing, lag times became effectively negligible. Shot-to-shot times averaged 1.1 seconds without flash and 1.5 seconds with. It took 1.3 seconds on average to process each file, regardless of whether it was a JPEG, RAF.RAW or RAW+JPEG pair.

      In the continuous shooting mode, the camera was able to record 10 Large/Fine JPEGs in 1.9 seconds, which is slightly slower than the published specifications. It took 4.9 seconds to process this burst. With RAF.RAW files and RAW+JPEG pairs, the buffer filled with eight or nine shots. Capture rates were maintained at just over six frames/second but it took 16.5 seconds to process a burst of nine RAF.RAW files and 21.8 seconds to process a burst of eight RAW+JPEG pairs.

      Good for:
       - Landscape photography.
       - Group portraits.
       - Street photography, especially scenic shots.
       - Shooting in low light levels.
       - Travel, provided you can tolerate the fixed focal length lens.
       
      Not so good for:
       - Shooting sports and action.
       - Close-up shooting.
       - Shooting movies.
