Children pictures with X100
Mar 6, 2013

I was wondering if you have tips for taking pictures of a tiny newborn with the X100. I find that I have to use the macro mode all the time and leave the aperture wide open. I also tend to use the Velvia and Soft film modes more often. Shutter speeds are usually 1/30, 1/60 or 1/125 and ISO usually about 800 or 1600. The pictures I get are nice, but I'd like to improve. I tend to get many blurry pictures as the baby moves, and quite a few OOF deletes as well. Perhaps its me or this camera is not the best tool for the job. For reference, I also have a Nikon DSLR with a few primes and zooms..
