First travel photos with X100S
Aug 12, 2013

I bought my X100S a couple of weeks ago, here are my first travel photos. The main reasons for buying this camera was:

(1) Light weight - I travel extensively and only use carry-on luggage

(2) Decent IQ

(3) Very easy access to shutter speed and aperture - love the manual controls on X100S

I like the camera a lot, not exploiting all its possibilities yet. My previous camera was a Pentax K-5 where I mainly used the 21mm and 40mm primes. Main disappointments with X100S are: (1) Battery life and battery indicator - the time from "two bars" until empty can be very very short, (2) The softness of F2.0 in "macro" mode - it's actually not very useful at that aperture. Some of the pics have been lightly post-processed in Corel Aftershot Pro. Some pictures are flawed, for me this has been a fun learning process...
