I rented the newly released Fuji X100s last weekend and had only few hours to play with it. But, that’s enough!!! Enough for me to rent it again today! Will play with it again some more. For those who are interested in renting camera and lenses in Singapore, visit this Camera Rental Centre near Clarke Quay.
So, that’s me shooting with the Fuji X100s near the construction site of the Jalan Besar MRT station. I managed to draw the attention of some people walking there.
All images here were shot in RAW format and then converted to JPEG with almost no post processing. I cropped two of them and converted one to black and white. I actually shot it in black and white but I don’t know why it’s showing in color when I downloaded it.
Excellent little camera. I think I am going to clear my dry cabinet, sell some old stuffs to fund the .. ahem … purchase of this little camera. But no stock in Singapore at the moment. New stocks coming in in 1 – 2 week time. I have done my research. 🙂
Tips and trick: use a small aperture to shoot into the sun to have a sunburst effect. I used f/16 for the image above.
Image below was shot at ISO 4000.
Image below was shot at ISO 5000.
And finally, the one below was shot at ISo 6400. Very very usable.
What’s more I like about the camera? It has an Optical Viewfinder (OVF) as well as EVF (Electronic View Finder). Yes, an optical viewfinder in a non-SLR camera. Lovely technology Fuji.
The one below was cropped. I was making my way to dinner to end the night when I saw this man in crutches walking to get a cab.
This is the original version:
And lastly, I did not end my night here. 🙂 I went to have satay and mutton briyani somewhere else.
The last image was also cropped and converted to black and white in Adobe Lightroom. I actually shot it in black and white mode in the camera though. Not sure why Lightroom is reading the file as colored. I am sure there will be updates coming soon from Adobe to better support the raw files of Fuji X100s.
Gotta go now to pick up the camera from the rental shop. See you somewhere on the streets of Singapore if you are out shooting tonight.
