  • Yes, DMiller, You are completely right about DR-expansion in L-Mode. There it´s a "software-trick" that actually works pretty well, as we could see f.e. in Fuji´s S100fs. I tried DR400% in L-Mode,...
  • Well, Jeff, what i have found after using the all together 4th X-S1: there is NO CLEAR "winner" .. If it comes to EXR-cams my only experience is with X-S1. So the 1/2"-sensors of HS- and F-Fujis...
  • I very much agree with rooski and DS21 ! In Your case i would try the X-S1 You got first .. see if it s perfectly sharp across the frame, if the ON/OFF-switch has clear clicks, if there is...
  • Good luck with Your new tool/"toy", Jpeg shooter! Most probably Your lens will be sharp .. :-D BTW .. my X-S1 is in for repair again ( http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/53427768 and...
  • Hi Shiny Top, actually i had problems with "silent mode" too, thinking that it only means zero sound (what i normally prefer). Would i have read the manual carefully, of course i would have known...
  • Replied in pictures !
    Yes, same (my mostly used) settings: L size, ISO 100 (sometimes 200 for getting DR200%): sh=+1, color=0, shadow=-2, hilights=--2, nr=-1 (btw it´s possible to watch these camera settings - kind of...
  • Replied in pictures !
    Here´s the pictures. It wasn´t meant to be a "clinical" comparsion .. i just wanted to find out if my (not only) first impression about missing sharpness in my repaired X-S1 image-output was...
  • Replied in update ..
    Sure .. no problem. I will try to find some time tomorrow. But be prepared: they are not "interesting" photos .. i just took them to find out if i was seeing or doing something wrong.
  • Replied in update ..
    Hi, for those who are interested (update): yesterday i got my X-S1 back from Fuji-Service in Germany. First of all i was happy, that they accepted "guarantee", as even bought from "amazon...
  • Hi John, THAT´s funny .. as my reason for having little space is just the same as Yours, even if i am not retired yet. I´m a travelling guy (whenever i can afford it) - so i am most time of the...
  • Thanks Orion, that´s a very interesting comparsion! As PhotoNinja is mentioned again & again, i guess it´s time to try it. In this case though, to my eye, RT gives the most natural look. Alltough...
  • Hi John, THAT´s really very interesting :-) ! It´s exactly what i should have done long ago, as i have been very much wondering the same thing. Mostly it´s the best to just DO things instead of...
  • Thank´s for Your kind words, Frank :-) - i´m glad You liked them. Luckily "dpr" has no function to show the one who is posting: it would have shown some pink "sunrise reflections" in my face .....
  • Through a window - FANTASTIC - great shot !!! Some i took during last week - all of them around the border Salzburg/Austria and Bavaria/Germany where i have stayed for a while now Fuji X-S1, EXR...
  • Yes, that´s a very nice moody image ! I captured the moon this morning, using my trusty S9100 and 2x digital zoom. On this cam i am a RAW-shooter only .. but for digital zoom it has to be jpeg....
  • WOW .. THAT looks BRUTAL !  I didn´t expect it that bad .. But still .. i haven´t seen complete information-less white spots like on the reflecting water surface of my posted XS-1-pictures....
  • Replied in Are You sure ?!
    Thanx .. but .. are You really sure? I uploaded the two pictures again with arrows where i am thinking it´s the white orbs .. (but You have to watch the images zoomed in to 100 % to properly see...
  • Hi, thanx .. and YES, i´m happy to have X-S1 back .. Since one week the possibility to send the cam back to the seller is gone - and what did i have to see today?! 1st one i used a cokin...
  • Replied in babha - manos
    Mike .. i already told You in pm what i had to say about selling Your S100fs .. (.. and actually it´s not much to discuss, as if You think Your offer is perfect You just have to wait for someone to...
  • Replied in Here is WHY
    Mike, these are - no doubt - FANTASTIC photos !!! Does it really matter, IF You COULD have taken them with another equipment too? So You have explained and shown why You moved on. Good. But will...
