Fuji X100S – Day 1

UPDATE: Please see the wedding I photographed completely on the Fuji X100S!

See updated photos from Day 2–Fuji X100S Street Photography

I was lucky enough to have Fuji send me an early release (about 1 month before the official U.S. release) of their new flagship camera– the much anticipated Fuji X100s. I received it today at my home in Denver, Colorado and just did a little shooting around the house for starters. Tomorrow will be my real first outing with the camera, as I’ll venture around Denver and see what I can see. Be sure to check back to see photos from that. And also be sure to check back about a week after that, as I will be taking the new X100S and shooting with it, and only it, at a wedding next weekend.

I will tell you that I have had a love affair with the original X100 (see one of my favorite collections of mine from the X100) and can tell you that I love the new X100S even more. Be sure to check periodically, as I will be updating my thoughts about the specific pros and cons of the X100S here for all the geeks out there. And for now, enjoy these photos from today (all shot as jpeg, ranging from ISO 200 to 3200, and everything in between):

    Nice pictures … very instagramish … no PP, really? In camera JPEG presets only?

      Nice Pics; one question though:
      The black point is always very high; so on my screen there’s never a real black; only greys.

      Is that intentionally?

      See sample:

      Cheers,

      • @John – Thanks. I didn’t say there’s no PP. Just said I shot them as jpeg. I have all the settings left as default for the jpegs. Then I do some PP in LR.

        @ Medon – Thanks. Yes, that is intentional.

        Same for me as well: all of the photos you’ve posted from the x100s look washed-out and grey with no black.

        Perhaps your monitor contrast or brigthness is set too high? Or perhaps this is a personal preference, the washed-out look?

        • As I said just above your post “Yes, that is intentional.” My monitor is calibrated and regularly matches prints.

    Wow…the X100S is a good camera, no doubt but you really impart a style to your images. You can make the most mundane objects take on a magical quality.

    Your X100 set is just as amazing.

  5. All of the photos you’ve posted from the x100s look washed-out and grey with no black. Perhaps your monitor contrast or brigthness is set too high? Or perhaps this is a personal preference, the washed-out look? Thanks for sharing it.
