A Brief Weekend with the X100



X100, originally uploaded by ABMann.

I am loving the X100 so far. The image quality rivals my Nikon – i guess a lot happens in technology in 3 years.

Of note, the dynamic range is impressive. Shooting into the sky or a landscape in open air still allows for a surprising amount of detail in the shadows and highlights. It’s just nuts.

The ND filter for shooting wide-open in daylight is a great tool. So much opportunity for lovely bokeh.

The only problems I’m having right now are composition because of the off-center OVF and adjusting the aperture. It’s a little hard without fingers.

Otherwise, it’s working well. I haven’t found anything interesting on the street yet. Not much happening in town this week.

Now: Some unflattering photos of me and mine.

Yes, but look! A picture of you not pulling a totally goofy-assed face!

Though you still had crazy eyes. You looked...hungry, and I'm glad your plate of ribs appeared shortly thereafter. =)

In general, or just in my presence?
