This book, a complete guide to the operation and features of the Fujifilm FinePix X100 digital camera, is a follow-up to the author’s earlier guides to advanced compact digital cameras. The new book explains all operations, features, menus, and controls of the FinePix X100 camera in clear language, providing guidance not only about how to accomplish things with the camera, but when and why to use certain features. The book does not assume any specialized knowledge by the reader, but adopts a patient tone in explaining topics such as autofocus, manual focus, depth of field, aperture priority, shutter priority, HDR (High Dynamic Range) photography, white balance, and macro photography. The book also includes discussions of the camera’s special features, including its “hybrid” viewfinder system.

The book’s more than 190 photographs, almost all in full color, provide illustrations of the camera’s controls and menus, and also include examples of the various types of photographs that can be taken using the many creative settings of the camera, including the Film Simulation settings, which let the photographer alter the color processing of images; various menu options such as Dynamic Range, Highlight Tone, and Shadow Tone; and the camera’s strong array of features for continuous shooting.

In addition, the book goes beyond the realm of everyday photography, providing introductions to more advanced topics such as infrared photography, street photography, astrophotography, and creating 3D (three-dimensional) images that can be viewed with conventional red and blue 3D glasses.

The book also includes a full discussion of the video recording abilities of the FinePix X100, which can record high-definition (HD) video with stereo sound.

In three appendices, the book provides information about accessories available for the camera, including cases, filter adapters, and external flash units; sets forth a list of useful web sites and other resources for further information; and includes a section with helpful “quick tips” that give particular insights into how to take advantage of the camera’s features in the most efficient ways possible.

The book includes a detailed Table of Contents and a full Index, so the reader can quickly find needed information about any particular feature or aspect of the camera. In the PDF version, the Table of Contents and Index are interactive, so the reader can click on a page reference to navigate to the desired topic instantly.

The book is available now in PDF format for download for $9.95 through www.whiteknightpress.com. The paperback version will be available for $24.95 through Amazon.com and other online sellers by mid-November.

    Wow. What a great prize.

    Nice to see a comp open to the world instead of restricting access to one country too.

    Thanks.

    The X100 is probably one of the coolest toys of the last months (I bought) and a nice addition to a Nikon DSLR…

    Thanks for this opportunity! Love the X100, but mine will be heading back to Fuji USA tomorrow–sticky aperture issue.
