It has arrived!

It came sealed up looking like it was brand new. The shutter count was at 700, so I'm hoping I did well.

I'm a little confused so far with the settings but I'm going thru the online manual. Not sure about firmware for the S, so I don't know if I'm up to date, or missing anything.

Thanks!

It states 1.20 is on the camera when I do that.

It feels amazing in the hands.

So here is my possible plan for the x100s...

I'd like to get used to the menu and button layout and I'm wondering what my go-to setting should be. I was using it last night with high ISO settings just to tinker around and it takes a nice pic, even when bumped up. Outside of the macro features on the LX7, I don't see it being used anymore.

Do most of you leave the settings close to factory when it comes to color, sharpness, highlights and shadows?

congrats! beautiful camera

regarding settings, I never touched any of those as I would rather do them in post.
if shooting JPEG, I've always been happy with the output.

Fn button is great for the ND filter, then Q I had it set for ISO and RAW/JPEG option

I haven't had much time with it yet. So far, I've only shot in jpeg, so I will try RAW and see how I like it. I've made my 3 custom settings but might tweak them a little. I work 12 hour days here without breaks, so when I come in in the morning it's dark out, and when I head home it's dark out. There won't be any pleasing landscape shots for me anytime soon.

But, I do have a shoot with a girl I know on Thursday or Friday for some interesting shots at her house. She said I could test the Fuji on her.

I have my iso on 200 - 6400 and have not touched it since.

Noise reduction on -2

FN button on nd filter.

Always shoot in manual

C1 is my bw go-to

Sitting at work currently but I did bring the S with me. I just did a quick Fine + RAW snap to compare files and see if the JPEG's were as nice as people had commented. I think they do a dang good job myself. I can see how not shooting in RAW would would well for most.

I've not tried out any of the special filters/effects yet. I normally tend to shoot in aperture mode with all my gear, or manual. I'm not used to having a shutter speed dial either.

I do have a question about the shutter count feature on the camera. When I opened the box yesterday and did the initial setup, it had 700 on it. I took a few dozen shots last night, really not too many. Today the shutter count reads 1100! I know that isn't possible for a fact. I guess I won't pay too much attention to it. I plan on using this thing a lot AKA: who needs an LX7?

What software are you using for raw processing?

Right now I just have access to: iPhoto, LR5 and Elements 12.

Probably not the best options.

No worries, I've had mine less than 24hrs but I'm thinking you'll like it just fine.

The shutter count thing doesn't work right in these cameras. It will always show way more actuations than pictures you've actually taken. Don't know why, but it does.
