Hey guys, got my x100 and used it for a few days.
Heres a quick random shot :
i have to say, i am changing my style for this camera a little bit, i no longer care about technical details just the subject matter and artistic style, i normally don't do any heavy PP or effects but i love it with this camera, i am also leaving auto iso on, and av mode, i usually loosely frame in OVF, but if i get annoyed or want some specific lines i'll just switch to the EVF, i keep my VFs usually pretty empty of all the info though and last but not least i'm leaving it in JPG
Its a fun camera for me and will likely stay on my side more then my 5d2. I would have to pick the 5d2 if i could only have one of them though, but its a nice addition.
That being said, i am having a hard time with the accessories, what the hell, 100$ for a thumb hold hotshoe adapter? Kidding me? 150$ for letting me use filters and a hood?!?!? 200$ For a case??
I managed to hunt down a filter adapter and lens hood for 50$ or so, which is about as much i would ever be willing to pay, but i can't find a pleasing case for it
I would like something where i can hide the LCD and back buttons and just pretend its a film camera, but all the ones i saw were above 100$, the cheap 25$ ones all have a cutout for the LCD, which i do not want.
If anyone finds such a case let me know!
I think im gonna hunt down a broken down film camera with a thumb rewind drive and just rip that apart for my x100, i need something, the grip is pathetic on it, but i am not shelling out that much for such a simple and tiny product.
