Just when I talked myself out of buying an x100s...

… they came out with the x100s in all black.  I guess I'm going to have to save up $1299. ha ha.

Do it.




The X100s is the most fun camera I've ever had. The leaf shutter makes for lots of high-speed syncing fun too.
Some cameras… With Canon written on them. Oh, and some lenses… Also with Canon written on them. Oh, and a shiny camera with Fuji written on it too...

Feel free to have a wander round my flickr

Are you shooting with the camera in RAW or jpeg?  Part of the reason I want to get this camera is because i've read that the jpeg files straight out are pretty good.  I do all of my "serious shooting" with my 5dIII in raw and then post process  but I kind of like the idea of having a camera that I can use casually and get good pics straight out without worrying about when I'll have a chance to edit them later.  Everybody I talk to says they love it and it seems like the ideal "walk around" camera.  I find myself not bringing my 5dIII certain places just because it can be a bit cumbersome.

Below is JPEG straight out from camera - ZERO EDIT. The photo has been resized only to post here.

Mark my words, if Fuji ever make FF mirrorless(similar to x100 series & same EVF as Sony), I will sell my A7r and stay there permantly. I LOVE the body design of x100s. I wish A7r has same EVF as x100s, keep the system even more compact.

Haha you're in the same boat as me. I was planning on getting one, but figured I'd wait a while till I had a bit more money in the savings account. But the black one came out, and that scattered that dream... Actually received one with a slight fault, and my replacement should be here tomorrow! Man it was hard to send that thing back after playing with it for an evening... Really awesome interface.

I just got A7r, and it's been very frustrating trying to find compatible RF wireless TTL triggers and Sony TTL speedlites that don't have overheating issues. 

What's the situation with Fuji as far as RF wireless TTL triggers and TTL speedlites are concerned?

I'm about 90% of the way toward a decision to buy this instead of the new Canon G1X.

There seems to be a lot to like about it. One of the most convincing things I hear is its ability to "see light" as a photographer sees it. The images I've seen suggest the metering is pretty extraordinary.

Looking forward to using it for this year's outdoor events season.

Recently I have to save a bit of money for different reasons.
But: in may I will have this camera.
And will enjoy the benefits of a leaf shutter with my 600rt's with the Yongnuo E3 RT as a fantastic system- in and outdoor.

The sync speed is the sole reason I am considering one.

Got my X100s.

And I managed to fire my 600EX RTs at 1/1000s.
Triggered by the Yongnuo E3 RT, manual power set.
(it only worked with the firmware 1.09, which I found at the P.O.T.N. - forum; not at their homepage....)

FYI
