X100s captures Sydney foggy sunrise

Luckily was crossing the bridge this morning early and saw this great sunrise with a fog hanging overhead. Captured iOS 100, handheld, f5.6, Velvia film simulation, processed in Snapseed via Nik software. Enjoy.

x100s does Vivid Sydney 2013

Took the x100s out for a very quick look at the Sydney Vivid Light Festival last night. Usually you will get better pictures lugging around your DSLR, however with the family the x100s was far easier and more enjoyable - after all I'm not trying to win a photo contest with these pictures. Some were tripod mounted, most we handheld at ISO's between 3200 and 6400 at f2. Enjoy.

X100s drive home in rain

Who says every photo needs to be sharp? For this shoot I shot the whole series whilst stuck in a traffic jam (not driving!!!), set the camera to program mode, with the occasional manual focus for low light issues, and just thought about capturing some great light. Yes even a boring car trip home can be made into an interesting shoot. All shot in jpegs, post processing in Nik Software with Perfectly Clear, most shot in f2, ISO 800 and above. Enjoy.

X100s captures Sydney morning

Grabbed the x100s this morning with gorilla pod and headed down to High Street wharf North Sydney to capture some sunrise over the water. A little late to get the really early light, but tried some ND filter useage and ISO 100 settings on f8 to see what it would look like. all processed in PSE 10 with Nik Software and Perfectly Clear. Easy and not time consuming. All jpeg files.  Now you know why so many people from the cold northern hemisphere love settling in Australia. Enjoy.

X100s captures a ghost game of football

Mothers day also had us travelling to 2 AFL (Australian Football League) games on Sunday morning, still early enough to clearly see the fog. Now I realise the X100s is no sports shooter, but I bought it anyway knowing that the fog may create a unique and slightly surreal feeling not often seen on a sports field. I think everything was set to A which is effectively AUTO in these cameras. I almost looks like a battle scene from a WW1 movie set. Processed in Nik Silver Efex in 2 minutes. Enjoy.

x100s portrait of Mum

Mothers day comes around fast, as does life, so its important to capture these special moments. Now my family believes that I've gone photo mad, so I grabbed a quick snap that was processed in Nik Color Efex - tonal contast + Perfectly Clear in PSE - 2 minutes, and presto - a great memory mainly thanks to the X100s and the right light. Enjoy.

Fujifilm X100s light trails of traffic

I had about 10 minutes waiting time so I decided to try the x100s for light trails of traffic. Taken using a gorilla pod tripod. These were processed in PSE with Nik ColorEfex and Perfectly Clear - a quick 2 minute process. I used the 'T' mode on the shutter speed dial and mainly used f8 for aperture  I ended up using the ND filter to try and darken the highlights and allow more processing time, therefore more traffic. Also pictured is a quick iPhone video of the setup on the back panel. Enjoy.

x100s action in mono & colour and Nik Software

At an athletics meet in Sydney today, I thought I'd see what the x100s could achieve track side. One of my sons was running in the 1500m race and I waited near the starting gun hoping to catch a few shots. I left everything in Program mode and set the drive to 6fps, and focused using the center focal point. I processed the B&W shot in Nik Software on the PC to bring out the structure and contrast, especially in the sky. I've also included a colour version with a slightly different crop, also using Nik Colour Efex Pro. Enjoy.

X100s still rocks with Perfectly Clear

Ok more pics from home but this time I've been using the jpegs straight from the camera with Perfectly Clear app on the iPad. Now comparing this camera with a dslr is a little difficult, however I still think a dslr with a good prime lens will produce better shots if used correctly, but not by much. In fact the results are very close. Enjoy.

X100s at the Art Gallery NSW

Today I had a spare hour so took a stroll to the art gallery to try out the x100s. All pictures were taken without a flash ISO between 400 and 3200, not that you could tell. Used a mixture of B&W and colour. All jpegs, no raw required. Enjoy.

X100s creates stunning jpegs

Well this camera just continues to amaze me. Here are some simple snaps at home in colour and B&W. All have had minimal editing in Snapseed on the iPad. It would seem that the quality rivals that of many full frame cameras and/or expensive prime lenses. Enjoy.
