    HI Carl
    Well, nobody's bought it yet!
    So maybe I haven't gone. Ebay is always a terrible round-toit

In looking at your photographs, you appear to prefer the grainy look with high contrast B&W. Even your color shots appear to have strong contrast. Personally, I don't like the grainy look as it appears to be a contrived look to match some older master photographer's look. I believe, they obtained that look because it was the best their equipment and film was capable of producing and that had they had modern equipment the look would have been different but that is just my guess. Of course, high contrast and more vivid colors along with shallow DOF tend to give images more "pop" on a screen as we used to see in Kodachrome projected form a slide projector. Also, if you are using an M8 or M9 with its poor high ISO performance you are somewhat forced to go for the grainy B&W look as the color noise is horribly blotchy. I suspect the image you cited was soft for two reasons, some veiling flare and slightly our of focus but maybe that is the look he wanted.
    I suspect you were looking at my Gallery here on GetDpi ... most of which features personal work shot with older Leica M's and B&W film ... on purpose. So, not as much "contrived" as it is using the same tools as the "Older Masters" ... because I do indeed subjectively like the look, feel and character of that type of work. My commercial work is something altogether different.

    Don't get me wrong, the X100 is a nifty little camera and I appreciate the images that everyone is producing with it ... just not my cup of tea as far as the IQ is concerned (IQ meaning Image Qualities as opposed to Image Quality.) Which, as mentioned, is strictly subjective. I am grateful for the posts, it saved me buying a X100 and then selling it a month later. Proof once again that it is better to wait when a new item comes to market and see what talented folks do with it. Some will love it, others will not ... same as with any photographic tool.

    ND filter on Fuji.

    First shot at f/2 with ND filter ON.
    Second shot at f/2 with ND filter OFF (as if it weren't obvious).
    Second shot kind of cool so I converted to BW and boosted contrast a bit.

    ND filter ON


    ND filter OFF

    Wow, Joe, did you notice how the X100 changed the positions of the people once the ND filter came off?

    (funny, I was thinking you took one shot and then immediately the 2nd one after removing the filter....so I had to do a double take when I noticed people were re-arranged...LOL)

    Seriously, I think the 2nd shot nails it for me...very creative use of the camera and the resulting image. Very nice!

    Joe - Great shots!!

    Just some 'playing' from me this evening. Some simple 'macros' or close ups:





    And, this baby just wants to be picked up and taken out ... these are after 9pm here in the UK - it is getting dark!

    So easy to see through the OVF, so easy to hold, so quiet, so unobtrusive and the ISO 3200 is pretty good too ...







    All RAW, no NR applied, just a little 'auto tone' in LR.

    Don't knock me, I'm still learning but this camera has to be a keeper.

    Thanks Ollil, Lee and Dave.
    Nice shooting Lee.
    Yes, a little compensation needed Ollil.
    Good observation Dave.
    Yes another x100 bug.
    The 3-stop ND filter re-arrranges people and inadvertently filters out one subject matter.
    Hopefully this is an easy firmware fix.

    Ashwin, these look great.
    Are these straight OOC or did you tweak them a bit.

    Definitely tweaked a bit. I shoot RAW ALWAYS and process after the fact in LR3 and/or Silver Efex...these were LR3 edits of RAW files...no sharpening or anything like that, though....

    Ashwin - great stuff as always.

    A couple of close ups from me this morning. I was using the rear LCD and couldn't see exactly what was in focus but I think they are ok ...

    Lovely black and white Ashwin - especially the second one.

    Lee - looks like you're having fun - the poppies are just appearing around here as well.

    As nobody seems to be buying the camera I took a few snaps on the way to work today:

    Nice work Lee and Jono.
    Went out and shot a little macro stuff today, but it is impossible for me to determine what exactly is in focus.
    I definitely need more practice.

    "Old Beach Hut"

    I didn't realise when I took this shot that an elderly man, probably a fisherman, was fast asleep in bed when I peeped through the window afterwards! :eek
    He never even woke up. :sleep006:

    I am amazed that no one has offered to buy the camera at the price you are asking. B&H Photo and most others are still showing out of stock so this would be a wonderful opportunity for someone who wants this camera to pick it up immediately and at a great price.

    Sometimes things are beyond comprehension

    Good luck

    Can't really process much right now but I got to my house in AZ last night and my Argentinian Giant plants were all blooming. These blooms only last one day.

    Two different plants in very different light.

    Hi There . . . well, actually, it was a response from Fuji UK, which was honest and straightforward, combined with an offer from my dealer to have it back . . . and taking a few more snaps:

    Thanks Rich. Wasn't a pano per se but a crop because of an ugly tree shadow. We have had a balloon festival here for two days. Last night I took K5 + 18-135mm and was disappointed by the results - may have been too close but they weren't sharp enough and I was on 1/500th sec ...

    This morning, once the cat had acted as my 5.30 am alarm clock and after another hour of self groaning and denial (it's too misty for balloon take offs), 'yowl, get up', 'OK, then', I hot footed taking K5+43 and X100 (lucky me). Loved the X100, viewfinder is wonderful. I did take some K5 shots as well, still trying to decide which 'looked' the best - i think K5 BUT the X100 is one fun camera...



    ... and it begs to be taken everywhere and I have never had a camera that wanted that until now ... forget the alleged firmware 'issues', once you start using it you will realise that the biggest problem is remembering to take the lens cap off, LOL!

    Rich, nice work with the shallow DOF and the B&W processing.
    Ollil, looks like your getting out on the street. Fun stuff.
    Jono, nice colors on your nature shots.
    Ashwin, your house shots are very cool.
    Lee, looks you have mastered your ND filter.
    Terry, I'd like to see the entire giant plant.
    Dave, nice B&Ws as well.

    Experimenting with Black & White. Just LR 3.4 and a custom Preset.

    Rich, John

    I've loving these - why is everyone going 'black and white' with the X100? Whatever the reason they look great.

    Joe, they are awesome. The third looks very 3D-ish.

    Just sitting at the sofa I came up with the idea of checking out the bokeh of the Fujinon lens. While playing around I set the camera to closest focus distance and f2. After a little cropping, I got this:

    Reminds me of shooting legacy lenses with my E-P1.
    The Canon FD 50mm f1.4 looks quite similar wide open.

    I've only had my Fuji X100 for a couple of weeks but I took it on a recent trip to New York and used just jpeg setting because it was a my back up camera. The truth is that I used it much more than the K5 that I also lugged along! All processing in LR3.4

    Joe,

    I live in a pretty nice area (Southern CA) but I think you have us beat when it comes to great beach scenes. Makes me want to get on a plane and go there. Your "street" is very much to my liking!

    Thanks John.
    Hard to beat Hawaii. Definitely fun and a little different doing "street" shooting on the islands. Yep, time to plan that Hawaii vacation.
