I really enjoy the ability to take macro photos with the X100. Something I really miss when using my RF cameras.

Great image... wonderful, everyday moment. Thanks for posting it. And boy, the tonality in the X100 file is amazing. Is this in-camera b&w? Or do you use something like Photoshop or SilverEfex to convert it? Thanks for posting this one.. wow!

It's Silver Efex Pro 2, used on the Raw file, inside Aperture.

macro is hard work. four decent frames out of 48. all cropped to square to get a little better space/composition. all handheld because my tripod does not shrink to 4-inches tall. astia/250/macro settings. except for the budding iris, the little blossoms are 1/4-inch or less in diamter.

Sometimes, like in this case, the X100 makes a better B&W "print" than Nikon's Silver Efex Pro 2.

Just got my x100, this camera is fun!

Straight out without adjustments. On velvia mode.





B&W, some adjustments to the contrast and levels.





This was directly out of the camera, f2, 1/60, ISO2500. Turn down EV by -1 to get this tone. Darn amazing camera for low light!

Thanks! The X100, along with Silver Efex Pro 2, is capable of quite a lot, I'm finding.

No one will ever get a chance to read this post (On page 80! I am sure....) But most of the B&W images suffer from typical digital photo images - lack of shadow detail and blow out highlights. and are in my opinion not very good and are certainly no match for B&W film images. the color is quite good (thats what these cameras are made for after all) The low light performance is quite good, if you don't mind the softer detail. But is this camera really worth 1200 bucks I truly doubt it....

What you generally see in regards to dynamic range with digital output is peoples processing choices, much like agitation and developer choice can completely change the way a film will look once developed.. The x100 sensor is very very good, and can probably achieve upwards of 12 or so stops of DR. In fact it's dynamic range is probably higher overall than the $3000 (body only) nikon d700 or the $2500 (body only) canon 5d mkII. In this respect, 1200 bucks is truly a bargain. The thing is, a lot of us don't like 'flat' greyscale images, so we choose to block up the blacks and push the contrast. Regardless, the camera is more than capable.

Blown highlights are more user error. I do consider the camera over-priced, but I've no regrets.

I don't see this on that many images here - but this is one of many processing choices. You saw deep blacks and blown whites from a lot of B&W photographers in the film days, even famous ones. (Moriyama, Ralph Gibson, etc.)

Digital DR does start to get limited as ISO increases (and I wind up at 1600+ over half the time) - but I don't recall a wide range of tones from TMax 3200 or Delta 3200 shot at 3200, either.

The B&W was done in Silver Efex Pro 2. The color rendering is pretty true-to-life when I want it to be and not when that's needed. I love this camera.

Thanks.

I'm not sure what type of trees the stumps were, they all appeared just to be weathered. Unfortunately we haven't had wild beavers for 200 years but I understand some were released into the wild in Scotland a couple of years ago.

I have a closer picture of them taken with my GF1 and I will post it in the "Something, anything" thread. It shows that ducks like the stumps.

I like what I see here, and I don't even like digital! The color shots are very nice, and even the B&W look fine (for digital). I always figured that if I ever went this route to shoot color it would probably be with an M8, since I like the shots from those. But this Fuji is even more attractive (especially at a much lower price). For a small sensor camera, not much to complain about, is there? The macros are an added bonus. Good lens on the camera.

I like the swan photo, Greyelm.

Here are some night shots taken by chance on the way home from a woodland walk, where I took none!




Oh yeah, and I like the new firmware - rapid focusing in the dark!

I love the X100, it produces raw files that are very easily adjusted when imported into Lightroom. Here are a few to show what I mean, all had minimal processing.

1. The X100/LR lens profile removes distortion



2. The X100 sensor captures enough info that this overblown sky came back in LR




3. The X100 sensor keeps enough info that the shadows still preserve detail when lifted.
