I've been using the X100S (and previously the X100) since it was launched by Fujifilm several years ago. As a professional wedding photographer and street photographer, I've found that the Fujifilm X100S camera offers me an unrivalled ability to get in close; creating lovely, vibrant images while remaining as discreet as possible.

To accompany my new book Fujifilm X100S: From Snapshots to Great Shots, I decided to share a few tips that I found useful when exploring the camera for the first time.

Gather Everything You Need to Get the Camera Up and Running

Assuming that you purchased the standard retail version of the Fujifilm X100S (rather than a limited edition), almost everything you need to get started is right there in the box with the camera. The only additional item you will require is a memory card. The Fujifilm X100S stores images on the Secure Digital (SD), Secure Digital High Capacity (SDHC), and Secure Digital Extended Capacity (SDXC) memory cards. Although the camera will shoot one image without a card installed, this image cannot be played back or used in any way after exposure, so make sure that you have a memory card ready when you take the camera out of the box.
