I just opened my X100S yesterday. Here's how ...

Here's how I'll use it.

RAW (always)

If my intent is to make b&w images, I have the shadows +2, highlights +2, monochrome + Red filter so I can see a b&w sample of what the image will look like. I edit RAW files in Lightroom and CS6 for b&w conversion.

If I'm shooting specifically for color in mind, I'll use the default standard settings with everything at 0

Silent mode off, operational volume on, shutter sound off

Display set for sun

Zone focus while walking around (ready for action) - Up to auto ISO6400

Various settings for street photography, manual exposure and auto. I might play around with shutter priority or aperture priority, but for me it's mostly manual exposure.

Auto focus when i'm not worried about action

Manual focus for static subjects when I can take my time

I shoot in SF
