Yes I can take a photo of the police when they tell me I can't go to the beach and to go home, then put it on Instagram and feel the hatred pour in, fun times
Good price but be warned the autofocus is slow on this, I returned mine and went with an XT20 which was much better autofocus

Small market now for travellers...
Excellent image quality, make sure to update the firmware as the original stock firmware has serious flaws with AF etc.

Unfortunately true, the AF even in single point is pretty bad. Better off going for the M43 equivalents for a bit more or even the M100. Beginners are more likely to be intolerant of crap af.

It is, even myself don't take my cameras with me that often now. Phones are quite adequate for that purpose now, and a lot of them are waterproof.

I still take mine on dog walks; I don't enjoy taking photos on a phone.
Why not document the lockin experience living history here guys

Good for you I think the experience taking photos with phones vs cameras are quite different. With phones, there is much less technical details you need to worry about, while with cameras, there are more technical variables you can play with. To be frank, with post processing, the photos in small format taken with phones can be quite similar to those taken with a camera with wide angle and small aperture.

I have Fuji and M43 and Fuji is better with image quality which I feel is more important than focus speed. With the exception of Nikon 1 series, I have not come across any Mirrorless that has fast AF.

Hello Frank
Any entry level camera can be put in point and shoot mode and be as easy as taking pictures with a phone. Post processing or not, mobile pictures are still a long way off from a normal camera. If you are happy with that you get on your mobile then that's what matters.
RE autofocus and phones, bear in mind this is much cheaper than a phone and is far superior to any compact at this price point.

Although i dont disagree, this camera lives in the shadow of its much more powerful stable mates. And indeed, that GX8 that went up recently is probably a better proposition.

LD2DVD, i disagree a touch. Yes, Fuji with certain lenses do generate more pleasing images. But generally there is little in it and ive found M43 a bit sharper.

I set iso to auto so the shutter speed doesn't go to low then all I need to do is set aperture (f11 fine for most) & the focus point; very quick. I try to avoid post processing as much as possible but should really do more on occasions.

For a beginner, they are very unlikely to notice gaps in image quality, especially with recent cameras decreasing the gap. Autofocus and especially tracking autofocus, is where there are huge variations between manufacturers. They will notice that.

The second point is just plain weird...
watching the reviews it seems the newer Xt-200 really has improved a lot in regards to the AF issues, i wouild suggest going for a used XT-20 over this,

I managed to get a used XT-20 plus XF 18-55mm lens for £300 (which was extremely cheap) im still a complete newbie but here are some images ive taken.

Agreed on the Nikon 1 series, they are marvellous. I used to have a set as my travel combo. Super light and compact as well. Such a shame that they are discontinued.

The main reason people buy a proper camera is for image quality.
Fast autofocus is often achieved with fast glass and not many beginners start with that.
As not to confuse you, I have a Nikon D300s and with the exception of Nikon 1, I have not found a mirrorless camera focus as fast as that. Be interested if anyone can tell me one that does.

Better olympus mirrorless will do I think but personally find the 4/3 sensor a bit limiting v aps-c.

Great photos! -Did you have to do much post processing on those?
Excellent price for a mirror-less entry-level compact system camera with EVF, even a refurb. The Bayer filter APS-C sensor is not quite as good as the X-Trans sensor in other models but it is still pretty good. A no-brainer buy for anyone who doesn't care about the practically unusable 15fps 4K video on the X-T100.

Sweeping statement. Believe it or not, not everyone even spends as much as £250 on a smart phone.

Thank you. yeah all of them are edited, The straight out of camera JPEG are really great on Fujifilm and they have film simulation modes. It's just for me half of the fun is the editing :P

Thought it might be, still a cracking deal but a bit of context is always useful how much pot-processing are you putting into your images? With a pre-set or doing each one individually?

Personally i edit each one individually, im a web designer by trade so im very familiar with the Adobe stuff, i know some people dont like to edit but for me i love editing the images.

If you dont want to edit though Fuji JPEG are awesome as there are "film" simulation modes to give different effects, a big reason people buy into Fujifilm is becuase the JPEG are so good.
I just like to tinker

You're welcome. Yeah I like to edit mine a little too, and as as you say, it's a bit of fun! What software do you tend to use?

I've currently got a Nikon DSLR which I shoot with in RAW and JPEG, however I often find the JPEG's don't really 'pop' like they have done on lesser cameras, and I don't always have the time to edit the RAWs!
