X100 before bedtime... still doing its thing.
Dec 6, 2012

I know 90% of the chatter here these days is X-E1 or X-Pro1, and I too am in the market for the X-E1 (with 35/1.4), but I still love the X100. It's so 'accessible' - both physically in size as well as quick good results.

For instance, just before bedtime, in my young daughter's very dimly lit room, she was finishing up coloring on the floor. In under five seconds, with available lighting, I whipped out the camera and snapped this photo, which captured her essence at that moment "I'm busy coloring, but I have a moment to look at you before we turn the lamp off".

Is the photo 'great'? No. It is just OK. As most of our photos are. Of course, sometimes only the showstoppers make it into this forum, with some of the images posted by fellow photogs here being downright amazing. (I like looking at them to be inspired and hopefully increase my expertise, even a little, along the way.)

Anyway, FWIW, thought I'd share this quick snap of the X100 doing its thing. Resized for web; otherwise, SOOC @ f/2, ISO 1600 (!), 1/60 sec; Provia.
