CORRECTION - samples have now been removed at Fuji's request.
Indeed. I'm sure Fuji have a way to go yet. I still have 4 of the samples sitting on my laptop and looking at them again they are very "clean" with good shadow detail, which promises good things.Bear in mind that Fuji has not finished the firmware.
Also, even as a jpeg, they can't profile the camera properly yet.
From what I saw... It's a beautiful thing on the horizon.
Still it looks like it may be here sooner rather than later, and I'm trying to think of ways to avoid buying it. However, to be honest, I'm not trying very hard!!
For sure.... My grands are listed on eBay but no bids yet...
Might list da wife later....
One day I'll do one holding all my cameras, which means you won't see me!!I would expect David's avatar to change in the near future...
You can try as hard or as little as you want, since you'll be waiting a while if you didn't already preorder!Still it looks like it may be here sooner rather than later, and I'm trying to think of ways to avoid buying it. However, to be honest, I'm not trying very hard!!
What is peaking? Never heard of it before.It existed in semi-functional form at CES Interestingly I can't find any info on how sharp the big wall prints were, very odd given that these would have been the first "samples" from the camera.
One interesting thing I only found out yesterday was that the X100 will feature "peaking" to assist manual focus. This is something I've wanted for a long, long time

Peaking is where in-focus areas are highlighted with lines/strokes to assist with manual focus accuracy. On the prototypes at CES, the peaking was green in colour but hopefully it can be changed in a menu of some sort...What is peaking? Never heard of it before.
All the best,
Regarding the softness: I believe that the photos were handhelds. One of the lower iso shots was the softest of all, presumably because it was a longer exposure with more time for motion blur.For those who didn't see them - they were jpg only and softish with quite low contrast. However very good high ISO performance. There was a comparison with a Nikon D7000 and the X100 produced "cleaner" files at ISO 3200 & 6400.
