    Re: X1 image thread

    I prefer the first one, Mohammad; this may be due to the fact that the man's gaze is diverted from us, or that he's hiding his mouth, another giveaway feature on a face. Nevertheless, processing is superb. Congratulations.

    Not only a nice photograph; I quite like that bicycle, too! Nice to see a lugged steel frame done so well, especially as a single-speed cruiser!

    Re: X1 image thread

    Jono, top-class shots, as usual. Not only they are beautiful, but they convey the philosophy behind the X1 well, I think: Not a second-class M, but a contender in its own right with beautiful colour rendition and a three-dimensional effect.

    Re: X1 image thread

    Hi There Helen
    try one . . .
    Lloyd, Mohammad, Osman - thank you for the kind words.
    We're just packing up for a weekend of high wind and showers in a tent with 20,000 kids at the Latitude festival . . . I think I'll be taking the X1, but I haven't finally decided.

    pictures on Monday (I hope!)

    My first X1 images, all processed in C1 (which seems to give slightly unnatural greens). The IQ is outstanding for a compact camera!

    Jono: Very nice. Beautiful compositions and color. I like that you re-visit the lane in different seasons and with different gear. Where my wife works there's a photo collection with a print of W. Eugene Smithss "Walk to Paradise Garden". Photos like your first one, always remind me of it. The puppy's growing up. Cheers, Matt.

    Thank you.
    I shoot the x1 80% with selecting aparture and auto-exp, with matrix metering and exp comp -0,3. I use a lot the 2.8-5.6 range.
    If I shoot portrait in contrasty light I sometimes switch to spot metering and meter on the face.
    And I quite often add a little fill flash too.
    Other than that 99% AF-sometimes spot AF when shooting wide open in order to get the focus exactly on the eyes for example.

    The camera is slow and I dont find it worlds better IQ than m4/3 but I really really like the size/light weight/quiet shutter and the simple user interface a lot.

    Re: X1 image thread

    Thanks, Matt. I use the X1 primarily in Av and generally at f5.6 to f8 which is where the test reports tell me the lens is at its very best - especially for the close-ups where I need dof. I use the auxiliary viewfinder because I can hold the camera much more steadily against my cheek/eye.

    Otherwise - exactly what T Streng says!

    Here are a few from my recently departed X1. Loved the camera but with my M8 and lots of micro 4/3 goodies I just wasn't using it enough right now. I might buy one again in a few months however, love the IQ.

    I agree about the Dynamic Range.
    Wow... A lot of info retained on the right side of the histogram.
    This camera should replace my GF1.

    Re: X1 image thread

    My brother-in-law was considering buying a new pocket camera and made the fatal mistake of asking my advice, ending up with a Leica X1.

    He put it to good use in my dad's recovery party, exactly one month after Ol' Blue Eyes was hospitalized with a serious brain condition. Well, what more can be said? Happiness comes in the form of a shower sometimes. Thought I'd share a shot, although I was not the photographer.
