    Re: Black X100s

    I might actually trade in my silver X100s and X-Pro1 and get a black X100s.

    That is certainly one beautiful camera. Jim (jcolwell) over at FM uses this body as his 35, and the X-Pro 1 with the 14 through 60mm lenses as his main body. Certainly works well for him.

    Re: Black X100s

    I've been very happy with my silver X100. Now I might just have to add a black X100S to my stable of Fuji cameras (which includes a black XE1 and I've been waiting for a X-Pro2).

    Re: Black X100s

    I could't resist . My new little black beauty Fujifilm X100S arrived from B&H. It is a replacement for the X100 I had a few years ago and seems to be significantly improved. The power button and shutter release (with soft release button) is still too easy to trigger on (I had it under my jacket and took 4 30 sec shots unintentionally while driving), but other wise this little cam is a joy to use. Just need to carry it in a bag when not is use. I'm hoping that this will be a nice travel cam to compliment my Sony A7R.

    Cool camera! You might try a smaller soft release, if you're having problems. I use a small one from "Cam-In" on ebay that is really small and low profile, and I don't have issues with it catching on anything.

    I actually just bought a couple of the older black X100 limiteds that I found new. The recent firmware gets it pretty darn close to the X100s, which I also used to own. Interestingly, as I was just mentioning on another forum, it looks like Fuji has gone with the textured black paint on the X100s, like the X-E1, rather than the glossy black paint of the X100 LE, so they look a little different.

    Enjoy the camera!

    Damn that's pretty. I traded my silver X100s recently after I got my RX1R which I love but the matt/satin finish looks so damn sexy.

    I must resist ...

    Thanks Douglas. I'm very pleased with this little cam, both in terms of image quality and handling. I'll look for a smaller soft release.

    Hi Rich, Good to hear that you are also using the X100S. I really am enjoying shooting with this cam, more so than with the old X100. It is my go everywhere camera, also in a small bag and the beauty is I don't have to pack extra lenses or worry about lens lust.

    Re: Black X100s

    It looks beautiful! I'm going to the camera store tomorrow to see if I can trade in my silver X100S, an X-E2 body and the X-Pro1 body for the black X100S. That will bring my "collection" down to the black X100S, one X-E2 and the new X-T1. Not a bad way to go!

    Nooooo.....say it isn't true Bill! I showed the photo of your SEVEN Fuji X cams to my wife to prove that my small collection of four X-series cameras isn't unreasonable.

    As much as I like my X100, XE1 and XT1....the XPro1 is definitely my favorite. It is the last one I would let go.

    Sorry Gary, it's a done deal. Here is my new toy. The only surprise was the extras, i.e. black lens adapter, soft release and thumbs up. I do love the color.

    Re: Black X100s

    This is the black lens adapter and hood I'm using on the X100S. Seems to be well made, fits perfectly, and a bargain compared to OEM version.

    Thanks for the link. I haven't been using a hood, but I am using the black adapter that came with the camera. Nice to have alternatives.

    Re: Black X100s

    You guys might like this. :^}

    I had the silver x100s and had to send it off to Fuji for service. I made the mistake of carrying it (in my hand) up a hill in the snow in Moab, and proceeded to slide down scuffing up the body a bit. Stupid.

    Anyway, I got the Black X100s which I love, stealthy as it is. I decided to photograph my own version of the product shot with my Phase One system. For me the X100s is a fantastic companion camera to a Medium Format system. I use it to scout out locations, and do the family stuff, etc.

    IF ONLY it had 720p/30 video, I would have bought one months ago. if a future edition comes out with this (as the X-E2 and the X-T1 do) then I will be first in the queue.

    I believe the X100s only does 1080p at 30 or 60fps, and the X100 does 720p at 24fps.

    Re: Black X100s

    I rented an X100s last May for a week and was hugely impressed. The release of a black version finally tipped me over the edge - I have one on order.

    Re: Black X100s

    Douglas, I posted yesterday over at personal-view; I ran a sync test yesterday (cameras: X-E2, G6, GX-1; two recorders: Sony PCM-10, Zoom H2n); my X-E2 cannot maintain sync over a ten minute period.

    All except the X-E2 are frame-accurate sync over 11'; the X-E2 was 15 frames late, sound and vision. I have posted on this problem on the X-Trans forum too; I noticed the sync had drifted in a shot YT clip I made last week. but yesterday I realised that I had assumed that the H2n had not drifted over that period—so I decided to test properly.

    I do not understand how this kind of drift could have been missed by the engineers; I have work in film and video for 30 years, and anyone can see a three-frame out of sync problem in dialogue, and some can see a single frame.

    I have my Fuji X bodies for sale on Fred's site, too, if anyone's interested. The X-E2 makes excellent stills, and has lovely ergonomics, but my work is 70% video these days so while I do not love any of the Panny bodies, I have to give them kudos for their excellent video.
