About me:

I have been fortunate and financially able to retire early. Now being a few years older, I just take life one day at a time and with no worries. Admittedly, I'm just a happy vacation and family snapshooter with no photographic skills at all, and I really don't care. I have no ego.
I'm not one of those self-centered, miserable, lacking in any social skills, socially isolated chaps lurking the forums spewing rude and inappropriate comments on others. You know who they are. But I really appreciate all the helpful people here who offer positive comments and suggestions.
I'm here to learn more about photography. And to appreciate images taken by others. Photography is just a hobby for me, and my life is not centered around it. That's it.

Does Spiratone still exists?

Is the X100F enough of a jump to sell my X100T? No. Not when I bought mine for $350.

You can blame its demise due to the popularity of tablets and smartphones. Soon digital cameras will go the way of the dinosaurs.

owenlabs: 2/4/17. This is a 30-day trial scam. After 30 days, there'll be a watermark or you get to activate it lucky moneyed foto fan. Or at least so it said when I installed it, before I uninstalled it. Might've been my ever-alert firewall frustrating calls to mother....

It is not a scam.

In reply to:

donCortizone: I've never seen more whining over a non-issue than the complaints about the ISO control.

"Woah woah woah, you mean I have to LIFT IT UP AND TURN IT?!?"

It's certainly easier than pressing a dedicated button and keeping your eye to the finder to make sure you've pressed it properly, and then spinning the miniature dial on the back of the camera to move your ISO to where you want it. Good on Fuji for implementing the change. Total bandwagon complaint issue.

Maybe for you. But not for most others.

Karroly: RX100 power and features increase at each iteration but at the cost of battery life :
RX100II = 350 pictures
RX100III = 320 pictures
RX100IV = 280 pictures
RX100V = 220 pictures
Will the next ones be so powerful they can only take 1 picture ?

I get about 400 stills on one battery if I don't chimp. Battery life goes down dramatically when I shoot vids.

pacnwhobbyist: One thing that is not mentioned about these cameras (this is true of competing Canons too) is that they are huge dust magnets like nothing I've ever seen. Just carry it in your pocket a couple of times to see how much dust and particles get stuck inside the lens. It's the main reason I don't mess with the compact 1" sensor cameras anymore despite the decent image quality.

Never had a problem with dust with mine. I do carry it it the OEM case most of the time.
