Record Screens & Menus

Fuji's 2.8-inch LCD can be very informative, showing you all of the camera's shooting information either as you shoot via the LCD or just as a list of the of the information much like you would find on a dSLR. Shooting with the LCD also provides you with an electronic level, making it very easy to keep your images level. Shooting with the EVF also provides you with the same information that you see above, except for the information only screen.

Pressing the "Q" button on the back of the camera brings up the camera's quick menu. Shown above, it puts all of the camera's most commonly used settings in one place for quick and easy access: Basic or Custom shooting modes, ISO, Dynamic Range, White Balance, Noise Reduction, Image Size, Image Quality, Film Mode, Highlight Tone, Shadow Tone, Color, Sharpness, Self-Timer, AF Mode, Flash Mode, LCD Brightness.

One of the few special shooting modes, panorama, allows you to pick the angle and direction for your image. Then you just have to press the shutter release and pan the camera while it does the rest of the work for you.

Another shooting mode for the X100S is its full HD video recording mode. Recording at 1920x1080 at up to 60fps with stereo sound, this will record better than average videos for a digicam. The f/2.0 lens also helps to keep the quality at its best in lower light situations. The menu system is very basic, not giving you much control, except for the white balance and film modes.

Using the shortcuts on the 4-way controller allows you to adjust the camera's Auto Focus point, flash controls, White Balance, and macro shooting modes. Around the 4-way controller you will find a command dial for easier navigation of the menu systems and changing camera settings.

Pressing the "AE" button on the back lets you change the camera's exposure mode.
