FujiFilm x100: Day 1

FujiFilm x100: Day 1

Today was my first day shooting with my new FujiFilm x100.   This is such a fun camera to shoot with.    I shot some 'familiar' shots so I compare these with some of my Leica shots. 今日x100はじめてつかいました。 このカメラはおもしろいです。

Much easier for me to get these type of  'street shots'.  The one thing I love about this camera is when you shoot through the viewfinder, when you snap, you get a 1 second preview of the shoot you just took in the viewfinder.   It is a very cool feature.

Testing out the bokeh on Kid Robot... you can get a pretty shallow depth of field.

The FujiFilm x100 is very responsive at night.  I was shooting at is0 500, f/2 and acceptable shutter speeds with no visible noise in the photos.   A lot of the reviews I have read say you can really jack up the ISO on this.  I'll need to test this out a bit.

First impressions after day one;  a great new addition.   I think this will be my camera of choice when I am out with Kai as well as it is very fast to focus and snap a nice picture.
