A few more photos. Still learning...

Wotancraft, the desk on which James creates his straps...



Unicycles galore....





Light switches...



Building.



Trying some geometric shapes.



The X-100, almost perfect. Fuji original half case, Gordy's wrist strap with wrist pad, Fuji filter adapter and lens hood and B+W Digital Pro UV filter. Waiting for a camera case from Wotancraft.

Nice composition  :thumbsup:

An acquaintance bought an M9 titanium and S2 recently. He must a be a newbie photographer or something, but he can't convince me that X100 is an inferior tool of photography.
So, in the nutshell, the finer things in life does not have to be the most expensive or exotic item or place one could have.

Not all photographic equipments are inferior, depends on who is the photographer.
If a pro photographer equipped with a PNS, I believe he can take better pictures as compared with a newby using the latest dSLR. But the pro's pics is limited to the PNS function as the dSLR has more functions.

Just my 2 cents of opinion. Peace.

brolex/ Sid Vicious,

Thank you. Still learning.

Your portraits and landscapes are alright, but seriously I reckon the x100 brings out your natural knack for abstract shots. The last set, especially the workdesk shot, is absolute ace :thumbsup:

GlySinn,

Nope have not received the bag from WotanCraft, as they are busy working on some new straps. They will be creating a bag specifically for the X-100. At the moment I am using the Crumpler Bundle (L). IT will fit the X-100 with filter adapter and hood and the Fiji X-100 half case (and wrist strap). It can be belt mounted. The other option is the bag by KATA but it is a bit tight. I prefer the Crumpler.

Surprise to see that Fujifilm X100 was better than the Leica M9 in this review:
http://snapsort.com/compare/Fujifilm_FinePix_X100-vs-Leica_M9
And macro doesnt seem to be a strong point in rangefinder!

X100 is not a range finder and range finder can't do macro and range longer then 135mm...
to me, it's 2 different type/class of camera.. no doubt, x100 has good IQ but m9 has much better details when pair with a good leica lens ;)

Thanks, but, you probably appreciated that I were refering to the M9 ........... which I had tried over the weekend at Avenue K ;) ;)

Hehe...not really because i owned a X100 (sold it to fund for a m6 last 2 weeks) and m9 as well ;) Just my direct feedback  ;)

x100 produces very good IQ given the price tag  :thumbsup:
