I'm looking to get into photography mainly to take some photos of my baby girl but no idea where to start. I've heard the rx100 is a good idea but recently had some snaps taken professionally at a pumpkin patch and they use the xt20 they turned out great. Any advice?

The x-t20 is a brilliant camera and blows the rx100 out of the water. I've two kids under 3 and have the x-e3 which is the same camera as the x-t20 in a different shell more or less. At this price it's just stupid cheap. The full auto mode is great to get you started but the manual modes are not too difficult once you spend time playing with it. Only thing I'd look to upgrade is the lens. Get the 35mm 1.4 or 27mm pancake to get you started.
No idea on lens tbh. Got a basic guide or anything that explains them? Does this camera do video aswell?
Cheers OP. Ordered one with the 16-50 lens. It may be possible to get it new from Currys for not much more after cashback.. but that would rely on both Fujifilm and Quidco (Currys) paying out... and prob waiting months for it.

Yeh this is ideal, itll take amazing pictures and the video is excellent as well.
But as someone else said youll want different lenses. For a baby a fast prime is ideal (as per above the f1.4 for better low light and bokeh or the 23mm f2 for faster focus for when she starts moving) and a 18-55 f2.8-4 (OIS for video and will get used more as your girl grows and you need more range options).
And indeed, the 27mm pancake is great for slipping the camera in a large pocket. Forget what all the forum "pro's" say, this with a pancake will muller any phone, and any phone planned for the foreseeable future.

Avoid the fixed focal length (primes) for video mind, they arent stabilized so can be hit and miss. Hence me mentioning the 18-55 f2.8-4

Re rx100, these are good cameras, Ive used 1" compacts a fair bit and got a lot of good pictures, but there not a patch on this.

Beware it can get expensive, the lens's you need for children (i,.e big aperture) are not cheap.
but its worth it when its your kids.
I bought this refurbished with both lenses last year (around £520). Everything arrived as good as new, despite being really squeezed into the box.

Love it. Only negative I can think of is the cost of other lenses, they seem a lot more expensive than what my friends are buying for their Canons and Nikons. I'd recommend you buy a grip for it, too. Feels pretty awkward without.
Been shooting mine for two years and love it. Great value at this price point!!

Get the Canon EOS 2000D. Cheaper and aimed at beginners. I've used one for a few years and it's fantastic.
The cannon seems to be a lot bigger? Dont think I will use it as much if it's so big and clunky

X-t20 much smaller and better, you can usually pick up grey import version of the 27mm pancake lens which makes it all very portable for around £120 (eglobal etc).

Rx100 a bit more portable - I have both, would miss the x-t20 more.

Fuji xf10 refurb (£296) worth a look as well if you don't mind the fixed lens / no zoom.

Like the xf10 but no lens protection puts me off
Amazing camera not the best lenses. Sell whichever lens you get and immediately get the 18-55mm kit lens. So much better.

you should look at some basics of the cameras and lenses etc as in what they are and what they do.. .and what they dont do
dont rely on others for the basics - pretty much any modern camera is good enough but are they the right one for you?

Received the camera today and it is dead. So disappointed.

That is absolutely right. Mirrorless is an ideal combination of superb picture quality and compact size. Also, the best thing about Fujifilm is that the JPGs (the standard photo files) are renowned for superb colours, and need little, if any, post processing.
I would recommend this setup, it is a cracking deal.
I disagree with advice about buying extra lenses right away. Get familiar with the camera first - whilst the lens is of the less expensive type, the image quality is nevertheless better than many kit lenses. Then, after a while, you'll be more knowledgeable and confident about which lenses better suit your requirements. Many first time buyers find their kit lens is all they need.
Check out this photography website - best on the net: m.dpreview.com/
Has loads of info and advice for photo noobs, and forums for each camera maker. The Fuji forum is very friendly, you'll pick up plenty of tips. Good luck with your choice.

Sorely tempted by this as my first decent camera to take family photos. However the remarks on the lenses put me off. The 18-55mm kit is twice the price. Back to square one!
I have a Nikon d7100, fancy a change as I don’t really do much with it to justify hiking the big camera and bag with lenses around. How would this one compare to it?

You can get the 18-55mm XF for under £300 brand new which is a great price for such a quality lens.
Unfortunately I can't justify spending over £500 total on a camera.

if you want better lenses you need to spend more money - this is always the case
you can import that lens for under 300 if needed (as above)

even better may be the deal on amazon atm 709 for xt20 with 18-55 with cashback that way its all new and warrantied in uk

Thanks for the info. Much appreciated. That is unfortunately still way over my budget. It looks like I won't get anything that good within the budget so I'll concede defeat and carry on using my phone for pics.

Fuji kit lenses on this are great, I wouldn't be put off, it's just that the XF lenses are better and worth stretching to if you can
My kit with 16-50mm arrived today.
Everything looked and packed as brand new, except for the box which says refurbished.
Daughter is very happy with it
I have Nikon full frame camera and only use Fujifilm for video and travel. I find the kid lens 15-45 is pretty good, and very light.
Just ordered the X-T30 with 18-55 for £769. More expensive that the deal here, but from the comments above it seems the extra is worthwhile
it seems the 15-45mm lens better for video and 18-55mm better for photo.
