The Dogs cute and the image quality makes me want to order an X100 and forget about the X100s

Thnx! I took Photo #3 this morning when walking on "Balloerveld" (The Netherlands). While training this little Shiba... And I thought only the X100 was stubborn and quirky ;-))

I'd never seen or heard of this breed before; it looks very cute. Pictures two and three, especially three, are fantastic. Thanks for sharing them.

Re: My new best friend ... & my X100

The Shiba (Inu) is one of the oldest breeds of the world. And looks very similar to the Akita (Inu). Some of you might know this breed from the movie Hatchiko. As far as I know all the puppies in this movie are Shiba's and the adult dog (main character) is an Akita.
-
My puppy (Bruce) Is 12 weeks old now and loves to walk, run and bite stuff.
-
Taking the pictures was hard because of the slow focus on the X100. When zone focusing it turned out fine. The pictures only needed mild post processing.
-
Any other X100 dogs out there? Hope to see more.

Re: My new best friend ... & my X100

Hi, The x100 is in hand whenever the "grand-pups" are over.  They are in constant motion and stop briefly only when completely spent.  The cam keeps up fairly well.... the ability to quickly change settings on the fly helps a great deal.  I also appreciate the OOC Jpegs w/o post-processing that the Fuji has provided.

Thanks so much for posting the pics of your new pup - probably one of the few things actually better than photography!!  I agree with the others that #3 is amazing.

Love shot #3! I noticed in shot #2, how big your puppy's front paws are at 12 months!Apologies for the Iphone shot, but I wanted you to see my Shiba "Mondo", and just how big he grew with the same size feet as your puppy at the same age!50+ lbs. of mischief and fun!

Nice to see the pups chasing each other looks like they have a lot of fun! Using the X100 burst mode in these occasions is very helpful. I would love to experience if the X100S would be the better choice in high speed dog-pursuits.

The EXIF data on #1 and #3 don't match the actual picture. I did PP using and saving in document #2. So Bruce was 10 weeks at the time of picture #2. That makes his paws seem even larger. We received the pup at 9 weeks. This pictures was his first pose on the 'sit' command ;-))

It will be interesting to see if Fuji can retain the special and unique qualities of the original x100 but improve the ability in autofocus speed on the x100s to help in these situations.  For those of us who haven't the ability or inclination to fiddle with extensive photo post processing, the x100 is a gem....hopefully the x100s will be as well!

Amen - 100% agreement.

This isn't my best friend, nor even a friend, just a friendly looking dog I met on holiday.
