After years and years of shooting in nothing but RAW, it's still a little surprising to find myself shooting with nothing but the 'Classic Chrome' in-camera film simulation of the X30....but when I see the colours it produces, I keep on shooting jpeg's.
Taken with the 'Classic Chrome' setting on my X30, late at night, on the street in a small Oregon town.
And, at the risk of repeating myself, I just have to say it again: the quality and versatility - and all-around usability - of this almost-but-not-quite-semi-pocketable smaller small-sensored Fuji... keeps surprising me.
I don't use my X30 every day - but most of the time, I keep it on the Classic Chrome film simulation setting and... it keeps giving me colours that I find both startling... and (I realize this is a subjective 'take') film-like.
This was a late afternoon winter skyline, just outside my house, in Oregon.
