Some people prefer the files off a Bayer sensor more than the X-trans. If it were me personally, I would go for the x100s since it has a lot of improvements, but I could see where someone would want to get the x100, save some green, and have Bayer files to work with.

Sorry, I didn't see your post. Got lost in the excitement. I will def opt to save some green. This isn't my main body, it is just going to be my walk around/travel/street/e​xtension of my right hand/my version of google glass camera.

Thank you everyone for all your input. Hope to be posting more in this thread soon!

I hope i don't regret this but I'm selling my x100s to fund the xt-1 purchase.
Anyone interested please PM me.

The X100(s) fits a very small niche. If you haven't meshed well with and and prefer a ILC, but like the mirrorless route, then the X-T1 will not disappoint. I'm fortunate enough to have both. :D

I LOVE the x100s but Im honestly just trying to downsize as I don't use my 7d. I can't get away with just the one(23mm) focal length otherwise I'd just stick with the x100s.
I JUST received my kit and I think I'm going to sell/trade the 18-55 lens for the 27 to get close to the x100s ergonomics. Even though Im sure ill fall in love with the 56 when it arrives.

You've gotten some great advice, I'm glad you decided on the X100. As good as the EVF is, I prefer using the OVF. It just continues the theme of the X100 becoming almost an "extension" of yourself. With the dials I can set up exposure without raising the camera. And then if I see a shot I like, I just raise the camera to my eye. Right eye in the OVF continues my vision of the world, my left eye allows me get an idea what's coming in/out of the frame. And then just take the picture.

It's also interesting how I'm starting to see photography in 35mm terms since using this camera. I can definitely see why some people advocate the 1-camera 1-lens approach. I have a very good idea of framing now even before raising the camera to take a shot. Funny thing is I shot with my 6D and 50mm 1.8 over the weekend, and it was starting to feel tight, although 50mm used to be my favorite focal length! Not sure if this is a good or bad thing though.

Anyways, as you can see, I'm a big fan of the X100s.

X-T1 owners, how do you guys like the included flash? Does it have bounce capabilities?

It can only be fired straight out as it doesnt rotate or tilt up (it tilts up to open but points outwards). It can be usefull at times you just want a bit of quick fill flash. The camera does a nice job of balancing it with ambient and it generally doesnt look that harsh way you get with a straight on bare speedlight. Its small so fits easily in your bag. It will never be a speedlight but it is quite handy I have found

It's as useful as a built-in flash...that isn't built in. :)

It has its uses, but they are limited.

I asked this question before but I don't think it was ever answered...It may not have been in this specific thread lol.


the X-T1 is touted as being weather sealed. Does the little cover for the hot-shoe need to be in place to maintain the weather-sealing? Or is it just literally a cap (kind of like when you get a new laptop and it has that little plastic piece in the memory card slot).

If I was to hazard a guess I would say it didnt form part of the weathersealing as it doesnt have a rubber seal incorporated

I need to get there earlier with less light and fewer people. Strong daylight, big stopper and CPL didn't cut enough light. I think it was something like a 3 minute exposure.

I did one in the winter for about 20 minutes and the people were gone.

that's pretty cool, but at 20 mins, wouldnt the clouds completely cover the sky (not necessarily bad)

kinda surprised a 3 min exposure didnt do the job.

I agree, nice photo. I actually would have liked it with the people in or out of the image for different reasons. Good job.

The winter 20 minute version was overcast, so the clouds were covering the sky completely anyway. :p

Thanks for the C&C guys! Just realized I didn't straighten it out. Oops!
