Question for anyone who has tried the x100s, does the split image work in the viewfinder or just the LCD? How good is manual focusing with the viewfinder? I would imagine without a split image in the viewfinder its basically useless.

yes it and peaking both work in the viewfinder. Peaking works far better on both, at least for me.

The low / high key setting sounds like it would be useful to me. Can these settings be customized at all?

it creates a JPEG (or modifies the metering if you're shooting RAW) so your JPEG tweaks still apply I'd guess, but I don't shoot JPEGs?

finally received my X100s from The Camera Store too, perfect timing for my trip to Seattle this easter, if only my 50 planar arrives for my M6 tomorrow that would be great but anyhow.

split image works in EVF and LCD.
I set my camera to split image for manual assist, switched the focusing mode to MF but wasn't seeing anything, I guess it doesn't work in OVF mode lol.
I guess Manual Focus assist is something I will rarely use, if ever even.

some quick dirty shots with it while walking the dog an hour ago
shots in JPEG mode, ISO 800, 400% DR except the 2nd shot which is at ISO 1600

Oh, I only work with RAW's too.

Thanks for the reply.

Love that shot, Ben!

Ben, what firmware do you have? I'm hearing that FW V1.00 has faster AF than V1.01

Hello everyone, I thought I would ask the community for some advice. Now, I know that the Fuji X systems are not ment for fast moving objects or for places such as concerts. But the past two days I was fortunate enough to go out and take photos, one was a rock concert and one was a hip-hop concert. I ended up taking quite a few nice shots (not Prosumer DSLR nice), but enjoyable shots none the less.

I had very little issues when it came to focusing on my indented subject (it's not DSLR quick), as long as the preformer was not moving around as much I was fine. My problem is with the lighting. I was using spot metering and focusing on the face, but those lights X_X, it's my fault for not reading the histogram I guess.

I am looking for suggestions on how to avoid this type of washed out lighting.

Attached is the .RAF File if anyone wants to play around with it.

1.01. Personally I think the AF is better than an X100 with 1.3 (which I've used for a month recently but not immediately before I got my X100s). It does NOT feel as fast as what we'd seen in some of Fuji's videos and I hope they can make it better than what it is with a firmware upgrade, but it's better than the X100 IMHO. The biggest help for me is that I no longer need to adjust the macro setting, the distance I shoot with is now always outside of macro range where with the X100 is was inside/outside that range all the time which was a major PITA.

stop shooting in clubs with crazy light? ;)

seriously though, when I've shot in lighting like that with DSLRs and EVILs and sometimes the light mixtures just do that. It's hard to prove one camera is better than another in lighting like that unless someone tests it with constant weird lighting. Personally I tone down the crazy blown out look somehow processing wise but I leave the crazy colors because that's what clubs look like.

A few quick questions:

- Does the X-E1 have focus peaking?
- Is there any way you can reconfigure the Exposure Compensation dial to do something else? (I've never in my life used ExComp on any camera that had full manual as an option)
- How many buttons are user-configurable? What can you put on them?
- When are they expecting to release the 10-24? Any idea on price?

Thanks! :D

Nice work! I'm surprised you managed to get rid of most of the hot spots. For me, I would like to be able to avoid getting weird exposures like this from the camera. Maybe I will see what happens when I introduce a flash to the mix.

Haha damn crazy club lights. So far for these type of images I've just make them black and white, but it's a shame that there is no real way to stop those crazy lights.

-There is no focus peaking on the X-E1 (only the X100s and x20 at the moment)
-The FN button is the only way to remap controls. I've only started using ExComp since getting my X-Pro1, I'm still learning.
-Just the FN button is user-configurable that I know of, aside from making custom settings in the menu for different shooting preferences.
-I don't know much about the 10-24 myself aside from the fact that a lot of people want it hehe.

Finally picked up an X-Pro1 with the 35mm F/1.4
So far just learning how to get around it. But loving the size and weight so far. GOnna take it out to shoot tomorrow.

Wonder if Mods are able to merge the two threads together.
