Maggie, Thanks for the thought on extreme macro. Sounds as if it won't work on just any old subject, but now that I look at your examples in light of the vertical-line advice, I can think of many uses for this technique. Dan

I hope I was some help, Dan. The Af can kind of hunt and peck for a while in macro mode, but if you can find a line, it'll usually latch on to it.

Here's another couple of shots:

I really like these Fujifilm colors.


Cottonwood Tree and Pines, January 31, 2012 by Maggie Osterberg, on Flickr

Great lens, too. Nice resolution and micro-contrast for a small-sensor camera, IMO.

Jackson's Nose, February 07, 2012 by Maggie Osterberg, on Flickr

Love the extreme macro mode on the X10, I do...

This was processed with the X10's RAW processor, high sharpening, -2/3 EC, "Velvia" colors, low NR.

One more Silver Efex Pro + X10:

That's ISO 1600! The X10 beats my M8 above ISO 640. Blows my mind.

Hi,

I've been enjoying this thread. Thanks very much for posting these. Still can't make up my mind to buy the x10 or the x100 but it's nice to have choices.

Regards,

Lou
