Robins Hood Bay with original Fuji x100
Epping Forest with original Fuji X100
First go with the X100F this weekend. Sent straight to my iPhone.
Autumn on the Ashridge Estate with X100
that X100 is getting some stick Adrian
Bought some cheap canon triggers..... work well on the X100F - quick test not long ago - straight to the iPhone as my computer is broken ☹️
Might use the digital teleconverter next time
Do many of you use the digital teleconverter.
Wish they had it as an option with Raw files!
Had a quick go again tonight with the sb900 and some cheap canon triggers
I use it occasionally, I've set the front function button Fn2 to switch RAW/JPG, so a quick press grab the shot, then the camera auto switches back to RAW for the next shot - so Fn2 acts as a single shot JPG.
As its a digital interpolation you won't get a RAW, as the RAW would be the original 23mm shot cropped to suit
I've not used the digital converter for the reason of not being able to shoot RAW. I bought the TCL and WCL, but haven't really used them much yet, now Ive got an XT-3 coming on Monday I'm not sure how much I will get to use them in the future.
I’m tempted to get a tcl. Been super impressed with the X100F after just one week!
Both converters are optically excellent. Happy to use either even at F2
Any news regarding the Fuji X100F's replacement model?
I can get a brand new Fuji X100F for £899 incl cash back at present so considering it
Its usually a 2 year (or so) cycle - the X100T stuck around a bit longer, Feb 2017 was when the X100F was launched, so you could expect it in Q1/Q2 next year but how much of the X-T3 internals gets transferred across in anyone's guess. The lens is ok at 24MP (but its the same lens as the 12MP original X100), its a little soft wide open to the edges, but it always was. There may though be issues with getting the new Processor into the same housing, with heat dissipation etc. The X100F isn't as fast as an X-T2, so whatever happens, I don't think the next generation X100 will be as fast as an X-T3 (focus speed, card write etc).
The X100F is a lovely camera, and I'm sure you won't be disappointed, as long as expectation is not set too high!!!
More importantly, is what will it be called, I suspect X100V, but it really should be the 'U' so the range went STFU
@Riz_Guru If you are not in a hurry, I'd wait for Black Friday weekend, historically Fuji have made their deals a little sweeter over that weekend.
BTW Silver is for Hipsters (and you'll need a satchel to keep it in), black is for pro's
I used to have the original Fuji X100, was one of the first people to get it... regret selling it tbh.
Will give it some thought.
Since getting my X-H1 I've hardly been out with my SILVER () X100F, so I ventured out yesterday.

Smashing. I’m feeling plenty of guilt since buying the H1
Just bought a cheap mk 1 converter. Over half the price of a mk 2 and if I can be bothered, there’s a 5 quid hack with a magnet which will make it be recognised automatically!
Yeah. The hack is easy and worthwhile.
OK so well outside my comfort zone, at HIPfest in Hull a couple of weekends ago, I went on a couple of Street Photography Workshops, one led by the fabulous Ami Strachen, who is completely fearless. Her website is here https://www.icandidyou.com/ - encouraged by her liberally handing out of brave pills, here are three of my best efforts.

For someone out of their comfort zone you've done really well. That first shot is a cracker . Maybe you should consider doing some more street
I'm not into street photography, but as a timeshot of UK urban life, they're excellent.
