Weekend with the X100

Marta's husband Kamil has lent me his Fujifilm Finepix X100 for the weekend, with a view to sell, I borrowed it with a view to buy - should it pass the test. So - some first photos, colours, saturation, contrast, brightness etc. untweaked in Photoshop or Lightroom. Straight out of the camera.

Above: Central Warsaw skyline at dusk. Fixed lens means no dust will get onto the sensor, so no 'spotting' or retouching in Photoshop to remove blemishes.

Left: ul. Poznańska, looking north towards Al. Jerozolimskie. These are only demonstrations of the the camera's optics. Its real magic is how it works around people - but for that, you will have to wait. A full test and comparison with DSLR and film rangefinder cameras to follow. In the meanwhile, thanks to Kamil for the loan of this camera.

First impressions broadly favourable, but I need to spend time with it to really know how it performs.

This time four years ago:
Dramatic sunset, Jeziorki

Reading the summary on dpreview left me with a smile (don't read it till you've done your own appraisal ;). I look forward to your insights, as usual.
