Having a rail to brace against is great, but you can still introduce shake just by triggering the shutter. In this shot, I braced the camera itself on a wall, but it was tilted in order to frame it, so I still had to hold onto it rather than let it sit there. I used the self timer instead of just triggering the shutter. Note that I dialed in minus 1 1/3 stops EC as opposed to your setting of plus 1/3. I was able to use ISO 250 this way. Mouse over to see other EXIF data.

Holy cow man if you can do it I can do it This is inspiring to be sure, had I taken this shot it would be ISO 3200 and unusable. So did you set the ISO to 250 or was it on AUTO? And you cranked the EC down, which made it darker, yes, instead of cranking it up the way I did. I am very interested to know how your getting the low ISO in this situation, this is my achilles heel as they say. ps: I've shot with the timer before, I obviously should do that more often. Thanks

I had the ISO set at 250. I had done some earlier experiments at this spot with ISO 1000, but I figured I could trade a couple of stops of shutter speed for a couple of stops of ISO if I could just manage to keep the camera steady. So that's how I ended up at 250. You have to be aggressive on the minus side of exposure compensation in night time or generally darkened scenes with the X100 because it wants to make everything look light daylight.
