Fujifilm’s X100 series of cameras are compact and perfect for everyday use. The fourth iteration, X100F, was released back in January 2017. It’s been a while, but according to the latest reports, we’ll see the new version next year.
When Fuji released the X-Pro1 and X100S, they became instant hits. Relatively small cameras with amazing image quality. Many photographers added one to their kit as a lightweight alternative to a DSLR for personal use. Others completely replaced their DSLRs with the new Fuji offerings as their new main bodies. People loved them.
A couple of months after the X-Pro1 launch, Leica announced their new M Monochrome black & white only digital rangefinder. This was the first commercially available black & white digital camera. 2012 was turning out to be an interesting year. But the price tag of almost $8,000 put it out of reach to most photographers. Since then, a lot have asked Fuji to produce a less expensive alternative. Now, black & white versions of the X-Pro1 and X100S are available, although not from Fuji.
While many will be preparing their own camera bags right now and getting ready to record the evening’s festivities and celebrate American history, one photographer captures American history-in-the-making on an almost daily basis.
That photographer is Pete Souza, who has followed President Obama with his cameras since 2005. By the end of Obama’s tenure, Souza believes he will have created over two million photographs of the President.
That’s a heavy workload. So, what does Pete rely on to get the job done?
