Fuji X100 will be my next camera. • Page 8

Nice tip. Thanks.
Properly announced now, here's a video of the X100S showing it's new tricks.

Anyone got hold of the x100s yet ?, i think i might get one in the coming months. I currently have a d700, but want something a bit more discreet, and been really impressed with what i have read about it.
Not in stock on amazon though and there seems to be a shortage of stock of the camera as well.
I've considered upgrading my "old" x100, but gave up for now due to the stock shortage. I think amazon says something like 2 months in Germany. I guess everyone and their dog bought one for their summer holidays.

Fujifilm released new firmware last week for the x100. Yes, the old x100, not the new x100s. It's pretty amazing that a company bothers to improve a discontinued product (for free) instead of just trying to get people to upgrade to the new model.
So if you've got one, here's your chance to get faster AF and focus peaking mode for manual focus.
I sold mine 6 months ago as I assumed the S meant no more updates and the AF still annoyed me, althought the IQ was epic. Rumours of the firmware update peaked my interest and when I read reviews of it I knew I had to have one again, and now I do

You bought another one? Where from? They seem actually more expensive now than they were around a year ago.
I bought one on ebay for £430. Sold mine earlier in the year for £500, bearing in mind extras I sold with mine price is about same really. The money side doesn't bother me, it's just a bit frustrating that we have to heap praise on Fuji for fixing things and adding things when half the time it's because they didn't work properly in the first place! Far better than just ignoring issues which is what Canon and Nikon tend to do. The new D610 is pretty shameful from Nikon.
Has anyone tried the new firmware? Does it make a significant difference?
I so want to love this camera. And I so nearly do.
Yes it makes a huge difference and why I bought another one. Used it in London last night, AF in low light is so much more accurate.

I've got one of these lovely little fellas, its just annoying about the focus distance. Having to kick it into manual and use the auto focus button or the lens wheel is annoying when it should really be able to focus itself automatically in standard AF mode.
I do love it mind.
I think that is because the minimal focus distance is unusually small, and if you wouldn't have to set it manually, the AF would always hunt through the whole spectrum, making AF for "normal" distances slower than it is.

New shiny for me! Covert street photography is the plan, and to carry it everywhere unlike the dslr.
