sh10453: Hallelujah!!! The laws of physics have been changed. Thanks to Metabones. An f/1.2 becomes an f/0.7 after inserting a chunk of glass, with multiple elements, between it and the camera.
Give them the Nobel Prize for physics!!!

Nice comment! If you don’t understand it, ridicule it.

How about a reading up on what the f number means first? (Hint, the article is correct).

SELEES: Hmm, all shots are at f1.8, yet some shots have pretty impressive shallow depth of field, (The hat for example) others virtually none....so is this camera artificially adding fake Depth of field?

Smartphones don’t have diaphragms so they always shoot at full opening.

FLruckas: It is not black and white.
It is grey scale.
If it were black and white it would only produce black and white, not tones of grey.
This is not lithography film.
:-)

Gray scale film has been called black and white for more than a hundred years and I think Fuji knows more about film than you.

PeaceKeeper: Didn't they just announce upcoming paper cost increases due to poor sales? Is this wrapped up in that? Seems an odd move.

That was photographic paper (the kind you use in a darkroom).

vFunct: Big news! Raw image processing coming to iOS 10: https://developer.apple.com/videos/play/wwdc2016/505/

Some misunderstanding here. RAW means that a developer now can get RAW from the iPhone/iPad camera with the new AVCapturePhotoOutput class. Which will improve capture app like Camera+

El Chubasco: Glad to see the improvements for Apple Photos. Contrary to what many have said Apple is taking its application very seriously and it has become a real tool for photographers and photo enthusiasts like me. I left Aperture about a year ago and switched to LR. I never enjoyed Adobe's interface and was not really enjoying my workflow at all. I switched to Apple Photos recently as it has become much more robust with plugins and editing capabilities. The interface is really intuitive and so simple that I can see how many will be using this great piece of software.

"Funny how they haven't managed to let you STOP IT FROM LAUNCHING"
That has always been possible: Click on your device in Photos. The uncheck "Open Photos with this device" on the menu bar.

If you can get an Oscar for a movie filmed (partly) with an iPhone it might have its place even among the "snobs".

There might be a centering issue. But there is most certainly a focus issue. Everything at the back is sharp. Look at the playing card and the gray scale card. No problems with sharpness there! And the more towards the front you comes the blurrier it gets. So either the cameras have been focused at different points or this S100 has a back focusing issue.

Nice shots!

Those who want more inspiration should take a look at these beautiful time laps movies (run then in full screen):
