  • Thanx :-). Well, that macro lens at least should be already attached  ...      :-D
  • Well, rattlesnakes ...   I guess, my photos would have come out a bit more shaky :-P ... IF I would have been able to post them :-D Luckily we don´t have that dangerous reptiles. There are a few ...
  • Oh Don, I am really feeling sorry for you !!! What a disappointment ... Now waiting naturally has to go on ........ As your X-S1 is new there may be no chance of ... ... well, when the X-S1 I have ...
  • Cloudy, rainy and dark?  ( I do understand your disappointment ... ) Great opportunity to use "EXR high iso - low noise" mode ...  :-D X-S1, EXR high ISO low noise mode, Auto ISO3200, ISO3200, ...
  • Prime, I promise, I will repeat this in the near future, because you are very right "complaining", and I am interested myself! My "test target" subject isn´t far away from here anyway ... ;-) The ...
  • My posting about ONE picture "M-size vs. L-size" i didn´t find, but the pictures are still in my gallery. I remembered that both L- and M-size were set to DR100. Truth is though: L-size DR100 at ...
  • You are absolutely right! Of course, if ISO rises, more NR will be applied and ruin detail or noise will do the same. Being able to expand DR by staying at lowest ISO setting was/is the main ...
  • I have done that, Lightpath. And I even posted one of my comps quite a while ago. Sorry, I can´t find it anymore, as nothing elder than 12 months is shown ... It was a church with tile-roof in ...
  • Thanx for posting this. Looks great! As I wrote, I didn´t do any further postprocessing - the posted image is sooc (after internal RAW conversion, RAF exists). NR I kept with purpose at lowest ...
  • Thanx, prime! I wanted to see what lens/sensor are capable of in such a distant poor light situation. Not wanting to ad another limiting factor, me :-D , to the "chain", I have used a tripod. ...
  • After posting some comps S100fs "vs." X-S1 lately in this forum, I went out "testing" my X-S1 again ... just for fun ... Many times I read, that X-S1 is outresolved by it´s sensor, limiting itself ...
  • Replied in Cool!
    Great you even get a new one, Ron! Strange, "our" amazon doesn´t offer new X-S1´s at all anymore, for quite a while now. I think the last price for a new one was still more than € 350,-. Yes, both ...
  • Created discussion thread Risking my life ...
    ;-) :-D ... just X-S1 between me and the "aggressor" .... X-S1,EXR high ISO mode auto ISO 1600 X-S1, EXR High ISO mode set to auto ISO 1600 Just a quick reaction to an opportunity. Shady track, ...
  • Replied in OK, I did it
    Great :-) you took a decision, Ron - i hope (actually I am sure) you don´t regret it! First step is, that the copy of X-S1 you get is in superb condition with a nice and sharp lens. If you ever ...
  • There is NO DR400 at ISO 100 at full resolution (12 MP) ! Like S100fs: you need to increase ISO to 400 to get DR400. That´s exactly what it is about EXR: increasing DR without lifting ISO (and ...
  • So You haven´t made up your mind, Ron ;-) . I was pretty sure, a "new" S100fs is already on it´s way ... :-) Well, I see if I find comps ... or if not ... do them. But my findings so far: "ISO 100, ...
  • Wow, very nice photos, Ron ! I easily understand, why You want it "like that" again. That was the reason, why I bought and sold X-S1 again and again and again. After a while I have looked at those ...
  • These are really great pictures, wj! I enjoyed to watch them ... I didn´t have S100fs long enough to really "judge" it. But I remember the "hot times" here, with Lloydy vs. Kim L. :-D . Lloydy was ...
  • You are right. 23xx serial number is the minimum, there the new generation starts. It means, this copy of X-S1 is produced third quarter of 2012. First number means year, second stands for the ...
