Love this! I did a Zoom meeting yesterday and I was sitting in the Millennium Falcon with Chewbacca, but it would be great to add your own photos.
Haha that's cool :) Thanks, Donna.
The only issue I have with that is disappearing into the bg unless you stay super still ;)

The shadow recovery of the original X100 is poor compared to the latest X-Trans sensors
The shadow recovery on a modern Fuji raw file is almost unbelievable. You can almost turn night into day (I did say almost...) ;)

Yep. Every time I use mine I wonder why I’ve got anything else.
Trevor, it get worse, this is at ISO640, can't believe how sharp and clean it is

This is the raw file and here are the Adobe adjustments I applied - oh dear back to the drawing board - can't believe how good the colours are from this sensor

Fab. I really don’t need convincing David. There was a time I had two. One with WCL fitted. No problem to take both out together. Never ever wished I’d bought something else along.
It’s definitely never ever leaving my clutches.

I love my X100F for its AF speed (relative), the joystick, the shadow recovery, the overall handling, its a lovely package, but I've got to say I think I love the colours out of the original X100 more

No can do, would miss the X100F for its portability, and I need the X-H1 + lenses for a couple of projects - and the film cameras would be hard to part with....... and even selling the lot I still would be short......
Maybe I don't want you to sell everything. Maybe I just wanted one of your film cameras :p haha. For all the character, quirks and different images each camera can produce, I'd much rather have the bundle you have than a GFX :)

Yep. Thought about that as well. Need to get my man maths calculator working..
If you are considering a 50 then I would wait, until the 100S's start being delivered, I think there will be quite a few s/h ones around and the price will (hopefully) reflect that - but if you consider a 100S there is a trade in bonus on any FF camera plus free battery and charger promotion at the moment.

I can talk myself into the camera quite easily but its the initial (and possibly only) lens selection that I have difficulty with - the 32-64 is quite big and not super fast, the primes look great but 2-3 of them and it gets ££££, the 45-100 is another option and there is rumoured a 20-34 coming.

Also there is supposed to be a Sigma announcement today, and is today the day they launch X-mount lenses...................

Too much tech to consider....back to the X100 :)

If memory serve me right
First number is year 1 = 2011 2 =2012 etc
Second number and letter is the quarter of the year.
1 , 5 ,A first quarter
2 , 6 B second quarter etc
So 95 would be 2019 first quarter.

Not sure how many of you use the Adobe Photography Plan - but I have just managed to get two months free. How and why?

Now that I'm camera less I thought spending £9.98 a month for photographic software was abit excessive. So I went online to my Adobe account, hit cancel plan and they told me it would cost £19.96 early cancellation fee (because my annual subscription expires mid-July).

Then it asked for the reason I wanted to cancel so I selected 'too expensive' and on the next screen I was presented with an offer of the next 2 months (or 60 days) for free.

So I accepted the offer and sure enough my account has been updated to show next billing date as mid-May - presumably because they have just taken mid-Feb til mid-March last week.

Might help people struggling with money or maybe just to seemingly get something for nowt.

I will try to cancel again mid-May and see what happens! Meanwhile I will be researching freebie image editing software.

Bye for now.

The thing to watch for is if they extend your annual contract date.

Last time I did this it was a few years back and much closer to the renewal date - the commitment was implicitly extended for a year - so yes two months free - but a commitment for another year.

And as you have also discovered - if you cancel before the end of the annual commitment you have to pay half the outstanding fees.

So go carefully.
