Lunar Eclipse in Beijing

As I get to play around more I hope to finally get some picture up of the Fujifilm X100 I have started using. Lots of site talks of ‘the most hyped camera’ of 2011 or whenever, and I bought it because I can actually use it. Yes, it has some faults, but it has many many qualities that make it an interesting choice for lots of photographers. And that includes bumbling amateurs like me who just try and enjoy taking pictures, but like to have something that can actually take what is wanted, and that requires minimal post processing. But I have little time, so cannot guarantee anything!
For those of you that may see this post looking for a review of the Fujifilm X100 I wish I had time to do one. Seriously, it deserves better press than a lot of what I have read. It really will make you happy about having a camera again, and just taking pictures that you like. The angle of the lens, the luminosity are totally perfect. It is not so much a question of zoom or lack of it, it is a question of having a field of vision that is natural and close to how you eyes see things, with a bit extra on the sides. You can see a shot and frame it, whip out your camera, and take it. Wander around with it, it makes no noise, it just looks nice. People will not feel embarrassed by having a large phallus thrust at them, nor will they feel that you are taking a picture with a toy.
Maybe more. Stay tuned. (lightly tuned)
