RTFM as the old cliche goes. For those not up on their acronyms, RTFM means “Read The Flipping Manual.” The F in the phrase can, of course, be substituted for something a little more vulgar but you get a general idea. Cliches, of course, are often based in fact, and the fact is that very few of us read the flipping manual for anything, let alone that expensive high tech camera we just bought. Very often camera manuals are staid dull affairs translated without flair from their original Japanese. For that reason, there is a whole sub-genre of books out there that tell you in much clearer terms how to use your camera. One such book is X-Series Unlimited by Dan Bailey.
The Fuji X Series Book
As the name suggests X-Series Unlimited deals with the Fuji X series. It does not concentrate on one specific camera but the entire Fuji range including their past cameras back to the X100. Whilst that might sound like a bad idea, so uniform is Fuji’s design philosophy that there is a huge range of commonality between all the cameras. Dan Bailey has done an excellent job of separating the areas where cameras differ whilst highlighting commonality.
