Re: X100 image quality...

Very Nice!!!

I picked up a X-Pro1 but there is no way I am getting rid of my X100. It holds in own for sure.

Re: X100 image quality...

Brian, I love the colours.. Looks very good in the Original size!

How much sharpening? I am very surprised at lack of comments . Price of X100 just went up here and I have still not had any response from Fuji India about how they handle any possible SAB problem.

Many thanks for sharing.

Thanks Tom, actually, the Fuji jpeg engine is superb - even better than Adobe LR4.1RC imho... and less effort - just use my settings, (remember to bookmark them for future reference) here :

I've uploaded the full resolution, out of camera jpeg here :

to compare with the LR4.1RC conversion from RAW here :

The sharpening is default LR4.1 sharpening, radius 0.7. Good luck with the SAB support - standard warranty should cover it, since the problem is defective manufacture.

Many thanks for sharing.

Thanks for looking

I do have the VF-2, but as with the X100, I'll use the rear LCD to compose much of the time. It works well as an optional extra, to be honest.

Cheers

Nice image. The OOC JPEG looks good enough to me...Do you have a JPEG setting for taking pictures of people?

Cheers,

I can't see any noise in the sky.

Nor can I, but sometimes people see what they want (or expect) to see. The real sky always has low-contrast texture if there is water in it (as here), I don't want a lens that cant render low-contrast detail or a camera that removes it as "unwanted noise". Happily the X100 passes both tests with flying (and realistically textured) colours.

Then You will like this Camera.

LoL, yes i See/want a FF FinePix S6 Pro in the Future.
I (Think) this is a bad "Feature" of the "DR-Mode".

I already do.

This was a raw capture converted in Lightroom. What "DR-mode" do you think was used, and how?

You'll have to take my word for it, this is the spot... google street view isn't quite as nice

Damn, I wish I'd revealed my first thought up front - it was right. "Whitby" (West Cliff of course) was my first thought but the kiosk wasn't painted blue last time I was there. Unfortunately all my photographic archives before 2008 were lost and I was last in Whitby in about 2005, so I had no way of checking (I didn't think of Google street view!)

I keep meaning to re-visit Whitby; I lived most of my working life just a few miles up the coast from there and regarded it as "home", but it's a lot harder to visit from the other side of the Pennines.

I don't know, i have not view/seen the EXIF-Data for this Photo.
What i know is that the x100 use (ISO100-ISO400) for the Dynamic Range Mode.
So (ISO-Noise) is possible in this Mode.

All what i only would say was: to much (Noise) for me in the Sky and the Signs.
Is this a ISO-Noise, a Sharpening-Noise or a stretched Histogram-Noise ?
I don't know but it is good visible for me...

Perhaps Brian could answer, but I wouldn't expect an experienced user to have the DR set to anything other than "DR100" when shooting raw, and in any case the exposure is consistent with ISO200.

Each to his own I guess.

ISO200, DR100% shooting RAW.

As you assumed correctly John.

I can't believe anyone would be troubled by the texture of the sky in that shot... it seems entirely accurate to me.
