Canon 7D Vs FujiFilm X100


I’ve now had the x100 for a week and results have been very impressive. So much so, it’s looking to be my go-to camera over my 7D, despite the fact it’s not as flexible from a shooting perspective. The 7D has it’s place, but it’s looking to be the ‘formal’ guy.

In the week, I’ve had it in bars for live music, pubs for casual friend shots, an engagement party, had a couple of night walks and it’s really holding up. Auto focus is sometimes an issue, which is a real problem, because manual focus is kinda useless. What’s jumped at me is how well, and specifically against the 7D, the good photos turn out.

As a little test, I decided to take them out for a short walk and see how they both work at night with a very non scientific compare.


Canon 7D with 24-105L f4, shot at 24mm at f4 640 iso
FujiFilm x100, shot at 23mm at f4 640 iso

All shots have been taken with auto white balance and auto focus on tripods with 2 second timed delay. Shutter speed is varied, but is manually set based on the camera light metering. Both have APSC sensors, and the major difference in my shooting is the 23mm to 24mm field of view, but I think this is livable. Pictures are as is from camera – only resized down. No straightening, obviously, no color correction, no anything except for ‘web-i-fying’.

I know the 7D is way more versatile, but the difference in size is so appealing. Just as a little comment on my walk, there were no accidental knocks with the X100, as compared to the 7D, bumping tripods and so on. When on my shoulder, I hardly noticed it – and nor do strangers. I know the X100 can’t do as much, what what it can do is be on me all the time.

The shots – 7D first, then X100
