This is making it exceptionally hard not to buy an X100!

Must save for M9!

I can't really say much as I don't have an X100 but The trend I'm seeing is that people get a camera like this that is easy to take everywhere and they start just snapping away at nothing. I don't think that just because you are on the street snapping random images, you are a street photographer.

I'm seeing some beautiful images in here but I'm also seeing lots of ho-hum stuff.

I guess with all of the hype surrounding the X100 I expected better...

Well, we all know the X100 is a camera, and it's the person who ruin the photo.

And going by that argument, should we be even more upset by the M9. It costs 5x as much but we don't see 5x as many good shots.

You don't need an X100 to make a comment any more valid. This thread is not just street and not just great photos necessarily. But there are some great photos. Meanwhile some of the capacities of the camera are of interest, e.g. the look of macro at f2, or the high ISO performance. I haven't used digital cameras much. The sort of low light things I have been able to do in the last week bowl me over. Some people will come here to see what the camera can do.

Well, some of the images above are quite good and some are not so good. I don't think it has anything to do with the camera and has everything to do with the camera operator. Perhaps this just shows this camera is as good as any other. In that sense it is perfectly capable, not any more or less capable than any other good camera..

I guess what I meant was that, while I appreciate all of it and I can more than appreciate pushing a cameras limits for the sake of presentation of quality, a lot of shots I see with X100s lately are just mundane images of people milling about on busy streets with no rhyme or reason. It's almost becoming a steady trend with this camera.

There are some extraordinary shots here though and I'm extremely impressed with the output of that camera. I keep viewing threads about it with the mindset that I may pick one up...

I wish I had a place that I could go to see one in person.

I think the same can be said of any new camera, or any camera at all in fact.

And, a lot of street photography is just pople milling around on the street.

too much time in ps and silverefex.

don't get me wrong, the files from the camera are great, it's just more complicated to get good black and whites from digital files than from negatives

I agree, I cannot get good B&W at all. And I spend literally minuts on each one

I can't stand post. I need to work on that.

One thing though, do you do local adjustments or global adjustments only?

I think I did some minor local adjustments on one of them, the rest is done 'globally'

Think of it as 'time spent' as you would in making a good print from a neg. The time you spend in the 'darkroom' is still needed to get that extra % in the look you want - traditional or digital. If an image is deserves it, then the time you spend on it is worth it for the end results.

This is a small section of an image below
I'm just getting used to this camera, it's an awesome travel camera, great quality.
I still need to watch the exp comp knob. As noted before it needs a lock or stiffer action.
This shot is overexposed due to me shooting in aperture priority at f 2.0 in bright sunlight, it maxes out at 1000th but the warning was missed by yours truly

Still I like the result

Still getting the hang of the camera, but I'm liking how it handles. I tested it out in a very specific type of lighting situation the other day:

Are you doing this with the in camera film simulation? I love it.

I want to try these film simulations but I'm afraid ill end up ruining a shot.

I thought you could shoot RAW and then do any number of in-camera conversions without altering the original?

Nope, I did those in post processing. All I did was convert it to black and white and add an overlay layer of grain to it.

I used photoshop. A while ago I found a file on the internet that claimed to have "scanned" the grain from one of the black and white films. I use this file to overlay onto my image.

Went picnic with good friends that had just got their 2nd child. And the grandparents were visiting.

Only really got to 'work' with the camera yesterday. I'm happy right now that it's responsive, and with more practice, I think moments can be captured adequately.


Mom and the big sister.


Dad


Football hold




With grandma.

Great pictures from everybody here.

Shooting the little Fuji at 6400 gives interesting results. The images have a little more grit to them and it seems to tone the saturation down somewhat. These two examples were both shot at ISO 6400 in near impossible light ... find another point point and shoot that can do this!
