I was using a cheap old SCSI-slide-film-scanner and the results were far from perfect. But there was some magic. The camera was tiny and had an optical viewfinder that allowed me to focus the Leica-way. Just a bit cheaper. It has a light-meter in front of the lens that is very simple and there is no way to set a precise shutterspeed-aperture-combination. But the results were awesome.
But I must confess that I´am a lazy guy when it comes to film development and processing. I love digital for the convenience and all the possibilities you have to post process photos from raw (for architecture etc.). And then the X100 made it´s debut. A rangefinder style camera with a fixed lens and all the dials you need to take photos without digging trough menus. I was thrilled and bought one to see it with my own eyes. And I was not disappointed (only a bit by the slow autofocus) by Fujis approach to build a retro style camera.
Enjoy life and photography!
