Fujifilm X100S PDF User Manual
Did you lose or misplace the instruction manual that came with your Fujifilm X100S? It happens all too easily, but fortunately Fujifilm makes a soft copy available that you can browse through online, print out, or download (see the pdf file below). It is certainly good practice to carefully familiarize oneself with the many different functionalities and options that the X100S offers, and the official user manual is without doubt an authoritative and comprehensive source of respective information.
That said, the instruction booklet can be a dry read, so that a dedicated camera guide book from a professional photographer that illustrates the camera's core functions in a real life photography context can be a very helpful complement. Yes, getting one of these camera guides (see here at amazon) would involve an additional expense, but if that book helps to exploit the camera's potential to the full, the (small) additional investment may well be worth it.
Also, you might want to check out the video tutorial on the Fujifilm X100S below.

The camera has meanwhile been discontinued and was succeeded by the Fujifilm X100T as a replacement in the same line of cameras.
