This book is not only a comprehensive guide to a great camera, but it is also a model of clarity. Alexander White has written a book that includes everything that an expert photographer wants to know, and at the same time, he has written in such a clear and thoughtful style that it will guide even the relative beginner who wants to learn how to use this advanced camera. He has a knack for anticipating the questions that the reader will ask and answering them ahead of time. I think it's a "must" for anyone who want to get the best that this camera offers.

The Fuji Finepix X100 is a complex camera with the potential to take really great photographs. Unfortunately, this camera comes with a manual that tells you about the camera's settings, but almost nothing about how to actually use those settings. One other reviewer called the camera's manual "useless". That's a pretty good description of it.

That's where Alexander White's book comes in. Yes, he repeats much of what is in the camera manual, but he goes on to organize it in sections that a photographer might want to digest one at a time. He leads you from the basics to a thorough knowledge of the camera. He even tells you how to download the (critical in my opinion) firmware upgrades from Fuji's website.

Yes, you can find this information online, for free. But let me ask you, what happens if you forget how to set the camera up for a certain type of shot when you are on the road or on vacation with it? Simple. Reach in your camera bag for this book. Use the excellent index, find what you need, make the settings, and take your photograph. Wasn't that easy?

I don't think you'll regret buying the Fuji X100 or this book. 5 stars, Dr. White!

After struggling thru the owners manual of my new X100s. I found this book written for the X100, and based on other reviews it seemed to be of help to owners of the S . I am delighted to report that it was a great help and whilst it didn't cover everything on the upgrade it certainly explained the different workings and philosophies of the Fuji cameras. I jumped ahead in my understandings in leaps and bounds. Great book for those new to Fuji X series cameras. I will buy his book when it covers the X100s as well , which I presume will follow soon. Highly recommend .

Very concise, illustrated guidebook for Fujifilm X100 owners. The book explains in full detail the operation and inner work of this fine camera. It will serve well those who own the X100S as well. Great manual.

I bought this book when I was thinking about purchasing an X100, and I am really glad I did. The poorly written manual that comes with the camera (like all digital camera manuals) would have really dampened my enthusiasm for the X100. Instead, reading this book first (then reading it again when I got the camera) really helped me quickly get over the X100's learning curve, and has kept me energized about this camera.

Bought book on kindle, easy reading. Nice format to understanding x 100 features. Purchased to get up to speed on x100s I purchased. Does not cover 100s new improvements. I like the book, found it useful.

This is a good, easy to use book that helps newbie photographers to familiarize themselves with the X100. Advanced users that already know a lot about photography, might not find it so helpful.
