When I have my Fuji X100 with Me Amazing Things Happen

Or, amazing things happen and I have the X100 with me.

I brought it with me to the Mavericks show last night and captured some great images. The focal length is definitely limiting and I wouldn't rely on it for a job but for having a few drinks and catching a show it works great. It's easy to get the camera into shows because it is relatively small and doesn't break the common venue no interchangeable lens rule.

Honestly for the first time I was testing the camera's spot metering ability and it worked pretty good for this situation. My buddy playing keys was kind enough to wear a grey suit to meter from every once in a while.

The following morning on my way home I pulled over to capture a landscape with Downtown Austin skyline in the distant background.

Because I live a busy and active lifestyle it's a blessing to have a camera I can bring with me wherever and whenever. I feel kinda bad for my DSLR.

Anyway, if your are thinking about getting the X100 I say go for it if you are knowledgable about photography technique. Oh, and I find the autofocus excellent once you learn how this camera operates.

If you have it then I am preaching to the choir. I love this camera.
