For the experiment, American wedding photographer Brian Kraft has covered a weeding as the backup of photographer Mark Alison who was the official photographer for the day which enabled him to attempt the adventure of covering the wedding with only the Fuji X100S, a camera with a 35mm wide-angle lens he liked in order to be able to get closer to peo. During the field test of the Fuji S100S, Brian Kraft has largely enjoyed the assisting function to manual focus, the focus peaking, which prompted him to use the X100S in manual focus more than usual. With the external flash mounted on the accessory hot-shoe of the X100s, he was able to capture dancing crowd in movement while being in a very low-light environment. The darkness of the scene rendered impotent the optical viewfinder, logical, and this is where you would appreciate the hybrid viewfinder toggled on a classic EVF for this kind of situations. The wedding photos of X100S published by Brian Kraft were taken in RAW format then process on his computer and we will not have any real-life straight from camera JPEG to see how the camera behaves. But the photographer said he appreciated the high ISO (could take a lot between ISO 4000 and 6400 ) image quality of the Fujifilm X100S even with no noise reduction applied. Actually, he appreciated the grain structure, something whih tends to give like a vintage film type of look to our photos and which you can even add on your computer with software like DxO FilmPack for instance. Just be careful before making your mind on the X100S while examining the photos of this wedding as Brian has chosen, on purpose, a low contrast processing method with pretty soft light blacks with does not show the real dynamic range of Fuji X100S which I assume is very generous (it shares the sensor of the X-Pro1…).
