COMMENT

The X100T to me is the ultimate small documentary camera, its design is beautiful and totally unobtrusive.This is so important in the field on documentary assignments to be as stealth as possible. It has a very user friendly tactility , the dynamic range and visual output is amazing, colour profiles such as classic chrome are perfect for my style of raw and unsaturated images and retain a filmic feel,  this is why I love shooting with the T!
