    Fuji X100s Manual Focusing

    Before I tried it, I thought that I'd like the split image a lot. Turns out I didn't. It really doesnt work well, to be honest. Peaking is however, very good. The feel and throw of the focus ring is excellent as well. Too bad the rest of the camera isn't a huge step up from the X100. If it was...

    Fuji Can I use the same UV filter on XF35 as on XF18?

    As the OP has got several good and correct answers to the question, I don't see the harm in elaborating on the subject of UV filters? It's true that it's a personal choice, but a lot of people use them because the guy in the camera store told them to, instead of pointing out the problems with...

    Fuji Can I use the same UV filter on XF35 as on XF18?

    You can use the same filter, yep. However, a UV-filter will degrade image quality without really protecting anything. The glass in the filter is actually quite brittle, and it shatters easily. If it does, it will blast the front element of your lens with small, sharp glass shards which will...

    Fresh snowfall

    Thanks, pniev! The snow wasn't really deep, but there was slick ice right under it at places. Almost fell and broke the X100, several times... :p

    Fresh snowfall

    I went on my first trip with the local photography club today, which went very well! We had some fresh snowfall this morning, and I thought some high contrast Black & White would be nice again. All pictures with my X100. Enjoy! :) More pics from the set can be found...

    Fuji Anyone else wishing for X100s+interchangeable lens?

    Well, the WCL-X100 gives you a 28mm-equivalent perspective on the X100/X100s. I'm thinking of getting one myself. I'd love to see a teleconverter in the same style, though. 50mm or 85mm equivalent would be great.

    Fuji X100 v. the other X - Leica X2

    Thanks, abl33! I just got back from another trip there not an hour ago, actually. I'll post another series within a couple of days, I hope! :)

    Fuji WCL-X100 and distortion when shooting raw?

    Aha! I thought it might have been updated in later versions of LR/ACR, as the complaints I read about it was for LR 3x... Very nice to know that the current version of LR/ACR reads the correction info from the raw-files. This info means that I can go ahead and get the WCL then. Great! :)

    Fuji X100 v. the other X - Leica X2

    Yes, I've used both the X100 and the X2. To be honest, I can't say that I liked the X2. The image quality is about the same, with a slight edge to the X100 in my opinion. There's no real difference when it comes to build quality. The X100 is a stop faster, and the sensor handles high ISO a bit...

    Fuji High ISO: X-Pro1/X-E1 vs Canon 6D

    If money is tight, the 6D would be one of the last cameras I'd buy, to be honest. An X-E1 is a lot cheaper, lighter and more portable. They are two very different cameras. I can't see any good reason to chose the 6D over the Nikon D600 unless you've got a lot of Canon glass already either.

    A trip to the Junkyard with the X100

    As long as the 35mm equivalent focal length suits your needs and you don't feel the need for more lens options, I'm sure the X100s will be the best camera for you. You'll get even better IQ from the X100s as well, and I must admit that I have grown as a photographer by being forced to use a...

    A trip to the Junkyard with the X100

    Thanks, Frenchman! The OM-D is all about what lenses you use. Which ones do you have at the moment? For me, the OM-D and X100 complement each other very well, and wouldn't part with either of them. The X100 works for me for 80%-ish of my photography, but I feel the need for more reach now and...

    Fuji X100S High ISO and NR Review

    Damn... I think I just started to crave for the X100s a bit more. How many stops do you suppose there's in it between the X100 and X100s? You're doing an excellent job with all this info and testing, btw! :)

    Fuji WCL-X100 and distortion when shooting raw?

    From what I've found, it's not straight-forward, but complex distortion. And it's noticeable.

    Fuji WCL-X100 and distortion when shooting raw?

    I'm a bit on the fence at the moment, wondering if I should get the WCL or not... The thing that seems to come up after a lot of googling for reviews is that the raw-files are not corrected for distortion, and that ACR hasn't got a profile for the X100 with WCL. Most of the sources are a bit...

    Nature Trees

    That simply looks stunning! Lots of character in the tree to the right, and the sky really looks striking and moody! It could perhaps do with a bit more air to both the left and right edges of the frame, but that's nitpicking. Really nice stuff!

    A trip to the Junkyard with the X100

    Thanks alot, everyone! :D Joeradza: My workflow with the pics is pretty much like this: Import raw files into Lightroom, do any quick straightening and cropping if necessary. Slight exposure adjust if required. Then add abit of contrast, a tad of clarity, and open in Photoshop. I'll do the B&W...

    A trip to the Junkyard with the X100

    I visited an old junkyard in Sweden last saturday together with my X100 and E-M5. There were literally hundreds of old, rusty car wrecks! Mostly models from the 40's, 50's, 60's and 70's. The X100 did a very good job here, as usual. Here are a few pics: There are a lot...

    Fuji Lens hood for X100 - Anyone tried the JJC?

    Yep, I have one of the very cheap no-name ones. It's a bit flimsy to be honest, and the finish on the inside of the adapter ring gets scraped off when I screw it on/off. This leaves some dust on the lens as well, which I'm not too fond of. These small issues together with the mismatch in colour...

    Fuji Lens hood for X100 - Anyone tried the JJC?

    That both looks and sounds good! I've got the JJC hoods for my Olympus 75mm and 12mm, and those are certainly good quality. The only thing I was a bit worried about was the colour match, but that looks to be spot on as well. I think I'll have to order one now. Thanks, guys! :)

    Fuji Lens hood for X100 - Anyone tried the JJC?

    As the original Fuji Lens Hood+adapter ring is hideously expensive compared to the knockoffs, I was wondering if anyone has got any experience with the one from JJC. I've got a cheap no-name hood+adapter ring at the moment, but the fact that the finish doesn't match the silver on the X100 is...

    Fuji Teleconverter lens for the X100/X100s?

    Now that the WCL have been out for quite a while, I've been wondering if Fuji is going to release a TCL at some point. I'm not sure if it is physically possible to make one with the same quality as the WCL, or if there's even a market for it, but I'd sure like to have one myself. Something equiv...

    Digital split image, proper MF and better AF does the trick for me. However, I won't get one until I'm sure all the potential quirks are dealt with, and the ACR-support is 110% functional.

    Fuji Has anybody switched from m43 to X100 or viceversa?

    That sounds pretty much like what I did myself. I had a Nikon D3 along with some very good lenses. Then I got a X100, which made me realize how much a small, compact, but capable camera actually get used instead of sitting on my shelf at home. I got used to the EVF as well, and then I tried the...

    Fuji Has anyone got the X100 instead of 17mm m4/3 lens?

    Nah, I actually feel that it's nice that they handle a bit differently. I've got no problems switching back and forth. I've had the X100 since September last year, and got the OM-D a few weeks ago. It took me a couple of days to set up and get used to the OM-D, but now it's second nature. The...

    Fuji X1 Pro vs XE1?

    I've tried them both, side by side. The X-E1 has a much improved EVF, and it's smaller,cheaper and lighter with the exact same IQ. The OVF of the X-Pro1 is actually significantly smaller than the OVF in the X100, and I rarely use the OVF on my X100 (which I own) at all. The only thing the X-pro1...

    Fuji Has anyone got the X100 instead of 17mm m4/3 lens?

    I use my X100 in addition to my OM-D with Olympus 12mm, 45mm and 75mm lenses. Having two cameras with me gives me great flexibility and versatility. I've always got the "allround" 35mm fov ready on the X100, and if I need tele or wide angle, I can just change over to the OM-D. X100 around my...

    Fuji x100 image quality vs DSLR?

    To be honest, I didn't notice any significant difference between my Fuji X100, Nikon D7000 and Nikon D3 in terms of overall quality. From the raw-files anyway. The X100s will be a significant step up from the X100 as well.
