I really like the camera so far and I am trying to find its limitations.

One thing so far is that in low light high contrast situations there can be a lot of flare around bright lights. Not terribly bad with correct exposure but not perfect either besides it is raining out there!

High ISO is very good. Here is an ISO 6400 night street image in the rain shot at -2 ev exposure compensation 1/75 @ f/2.8. WARNING!!!! Hand held boring test photos. Shot RAW Adobe LightRoom 4 beta default processing with no noise reduction and no sharpening.

I actually shot an in-house training video using the X100 last week. It wasn't really that bad.

The X100's image quality is so good, I am seriously re-thinking my D800 pre-order. Right now I am doing some "heavy vs. light" thinking because of this wonderful little camera.

Maybe an X-Pro 1 or a m 4/3 is a better direction for me for many good reasons these days.

It is a nice camera and the light weight is a big advantage for sure. Fuji really did a great job on this one.

Some street shots, in Amsterdam. RAW's processed with Lightroom.

Still going strong with the X100 and loving it's color rendering and high iso performance. These images shot in RAW and processed in Lightroom 3.

Luc,

I very much enjoy your images. I've recently made some changes to my basic X100 configuration, many to simplify the VF and it's basic operation and I'm even more impressed with the results I'm getting. I find it to be a very versatile camera.
Best Regards,
Roger

It's still just aperture, shutter-speed and ISO.... right?

Hi Roger,

glad you enjoy the images. I'm also interested in any settings you consider helpful for us fellow X100-users. Have fun with your X100 :D

A Fujifilm X100 was used to shoot these interior shots of the Norwegian Dawn cruise ship.
These images were edited solely on an iPad with the app Photogene.

Very nice compositions and amazing colors at those high ISO. The X100 really delivers in your good hands.

I second what Daniel said. Many many wonderful photos here and it reminds me that I have not been using my X100 enough and to its full potential. :)

A bit of motion blur is unavoidable as the group was dancing when this photo was taken. The photo would also have been better if I use a hood when it was taken outdoors last April but the X100 manages quite well still.

Thanks Daniel.
I agree, colors of this camera are very good and high iso is also impressive for an aps-c sensor.

Thank you for your kind words Luc. The photos were taken during a national competition of winners for street dances. This is an annual event held in Manila on April and gathers together the winners of various street dance competition from all over the Philippines. It is a very convenient way of watching the different group from all over the Philippines perform in one venue. The avatar that I am using is a photo taken from last year's event.

I mainly used a D700 and the 70-200mm f/2.8 and a D7000 with the 24-70mm f/2.8 to cover this event due to its fast-paced action but I have always wondered how well the X100 will fare in such an event. So I brought the X100 on a binocular chest-shoulder harness for a hands-free carry and discovered that the X100 can be a very good performer indeed.

Really a great camera and the software speeds up the AF? Too bad it's $ 1200 though.

Let's breathe some fresh air into this X100 thread before the X200 is announced at Photokina in September and the X100 is "yesterday's camera" ...

Did you look at the Xpro?, If yes, what did you think of it?
