1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I've used the first sunny weekend of this summer to try to shoot some animals in the garden. Definitively could use more length than 200mm.

    I just picked up a non Exxon version of the Maxxum 7000 with a decent lens and flash for next to nothing. It works great!

    Thanks. : )


    It's a flare that accidentally caught on fire. Really nice colour on that Caddilac(?) btw.



    I got mine for about 4 bucks (I think) with the 35-80 tqo months ago and it has quickly become my go to camera, despite being plastic it's durable, the battery last for ever (have gone trough 90 rolls already, still shows max power) and it just works without any problems metering is also spot-on.

    Another shot from the same batch:

    Nice, IC. Are those light stripes from a car or something?

    Yes, the Casa Battlo.

    ^Nice perspective. I also like how the fallen leaves contrast with the wall. I think you made your point nicely.

    Skate pic in post #3991 looks great. I like the tones with the low contrast, fits all nicely together.

    A while ago I've sold my Fuji X100 because the autofocus just didn't cut it for the way I like to use my camera... shortly later I've regretted it and bought a X100s. What should I say, the difference is day and night. Friggin awesome camera!

    Here are some examples. First is ISO 1250 which is a piece of cake for the X100s. Second one is absolutely at the limit. Shot at ISO 6400, f/2 and 1/17 sec, then push-processing with the InCamera JPEG engine by ~ 1 stop, noise reduction at its lowest level. Last shot was a quick test of the auto focus in macro distance.

    So what should I say? I absolutely love this camera. It really fixed all of the X100's flaws. Improved usability, higher resolution, better autofocus.

    I'll be honest. If there was a 23mm f/1.4 version and a 60mm f/1.4 version, I'd sell my DSLR stuff. It's so amazing to have this light, small camera that you can take everywhere.

    Now I'm really curious to see what the X-Pro1 successor will be like. If it has auto focus on the level of the X100s and the 23mm f/1.4 and 56mm f/1.2 lenses (announced for Q4 2013 & Q1 2014) deliver, I might make the jump away from DSLR. I don't need fast AF for sport or anything, but it needs to be accurate in low light and the X100s absolutely is.
