Wonderful street work!
Great work Kai, how are you finding the X100?

Well worth a dip Kai

Inspired by Terry's comment below (I do prefer your B&W rendition Kai) - I tried this in B&W too... sometimes I forget that less can be more

Thank-you, Terry! I use a variety of Nik Software products for post processing.

So easy to just grab and shoot. These colours didn't last long ...

We enjoyed a day out for my daughter's 18th birthday yesterday - the X100 was perfect for group shots like this.

Here's a long exposure with the X100...
Beautiful... I like the way you've retained the detail in the tent structures to the left.
Thanks for sharing
I've just ordered one. It will go with me everywhere, even when toting my analogue only kit.
With virtually no experience using the X100, I took my new camera on our holiday to Germany ... and fell in love with the camera, the images it captures and, in some unexplained way, the added freedom I feel shooting with the X100.
I have one now (how many cameras is this in the last five years, I ask myself) and have shot a few hundred exposures; mine (pre-owned; comes with the firmware update) and I find I am liking it and the images very much.
I am in Charlottesville VA presently; images to come (just finished many days of teaching and am processing video and audio too); images for me and the group here will come in the next couple of days.
I really like this camera, I must say; feels like a keeper.
"in some unexplained way, the added freedom I feel shooting with the X100"
This sums up perfectly how I feel about using the x100 - thanks for putting it so neatly into words...!
Yes, great pictures folks... please keep them coming, I return often to view this thread.
Came across this unusual sculpture today...

Here's a shot of my GF using my M9. I wish the x100 was a little sharper at f/2...
LOL, are you kidding? that looks pretty sharp to me

Where is everyone? Defected to the NEX camp? I'm still enjoying my X100 and wonder more and more if I may as well just shoot JPG.
I have the NEX 5N and thinking about moving over here. The quality of the images and the simplicity of carrying just one body/lens is appealing. The NEX system keeps wanting to grow and if I want a big system I'll just take my 5D2.
Ha ha, good to see you here! I don't have a NEX but my Pentax K5 has hardly left the camera bag since I bought the X100. Nothing wrong with the K5 but in the X100 I have an excellent, quiet camera that is light, elegant and fun to use. No shutter blur, no BF/FF issues. And I do not need to worry about 'which lens to use' - that is very liberating.
Reminds me a little of when I used my Mamiya 7 ...
P.S. My M4/3 has been lonely as well ...
I sold my K5. It was truly a great camera but too close in size to my 5D2. The NEX is great but I having trouble bonding with it.
On the other hand it seems while almost no one here seems to love it I can't find a new X100 to buy. It's a strange world.
Haven't posted in awhile, but here are a few street shots from my recent trip to New York.
A very enjoyable camera.
Just wish I had more time to use it.
Love them. Zone focusing, candids shot from the hip?
The lens on the x100 is much softer at f/2 than that biogon in that photo. What you're seeing is the illusion of sharpness from added contrast in post and a reduction in image size.
Sorry to hear you're unhappy with the sharpness you're getting wide open Wozza... glad to see your PP skills are making up for it
I've had a bit of a dry spell with photography for a while - but certainly keep coming back here for inspiration, so thanks for posting folks!
I've been shooting with the X100 for a while as my normal small lightweight travel camera. It replaces my M9 outfit that unfortunately I had to sacrifice to afford my MF digital gear. However, I LOVE this camera and the quality of the 35mm equivalent lens.
I'm in China at the moment and shot these using the X100.
Twilight at the Forbidden City:
The Great Wall at Mutianyu:
By 9am the tourists started to arrive via the cable lifts - no such luck for me at 6:30am! I did however have the wall to myself for a couple of hours. That's a heck of a hike up from the village below (and back down). However, one slip here and you get down a LOT quicker!
Obligatory "I was there" shot along with my X100. I had a G3 & 12/2 / 45/1.8 with me too but almost without exception I preferred the X100 shots from the morning. Btw, it's freaking COLD up there at 7am in November!
Remember: adventure before dementia!
