Haha bravo, that would have taken some balls. What were you doing to it?
IR conversion? Or DIY repair?
Work on potential firmware hack / custom firmware. You won't hear about it for a while.
Anyone bought the x100 from DWI?
Is it different to the retail version at all? Chargers etc...
I'd guess the chargers are different, but the price differential between DWI and locally was generally too small for people to immediately jump online and order.
Anyway, black limited edition X100:
Wide angle lens converter for X100 (28mm). New firmware update too! (v1.30)
Awesome! Always was a little worried I'd miss the 28mm of my SLR, looks like I don't need to now
Edit: Other forums seem to think it's gonna be around the $375 mark RRP, it'd wanna have pretty damn good optical quality for that price
Edit MKII: Sample images look good, I'm in if they can be had for $300 grey.
I have a cheapie 0.7x converter which approximates a 24mm FOV once mounted - but there's so much flaring it's ridiculous.
That wide angle converter looks interesting. I am travelling a bit with mine and often find having something a bit wider would be nice.
I used to have a 5D with a 16-35/2.8 and an 85/1.2. The 85mm lens was of course fantastic for portraits and I was sad to sell it, but I have to say the quality of the portraits I can get out of the X100 and its fast lens continue to impress me.
Having pretty girls around to take photos of helps!
Bit of a thread bump, I was wondering how what peoples opinions of x100 are now after a fair while..love it ? Fell out of love with it?
I dont see many images in the galary taken with the x100 so wondering are most up the back of the cupboard....
I'm looking for something a bit different, was thinking of a secondhand x100, but now they are talking x200 may be worth he wait...
I still love mine, but nowadays it's mostly been getting travel / party / fun use, since I've done my serious street photography on film.
It's still a quirky camera, so if you know anyone that has one, see if you can try it out, otherwise, I'd hang around for the X200.
I love the little guy, I take it with me whenever I go out
Im not in a real hurry so this may be the go, ima y also flood the market with some used x100's
Thats what I was thinking, dont realy like draging the D3/24-70 combo around...I want something that when i go somewhere I dont think twice about taking it..
I replaced my 7d and 30 1.4 with the x100 and I've no regrets.
I've got the EF-20 as well - use it with a canon ettl cable and you've got an amazingly good party camera.
Still the most exciting and fun camera that I've ever used.
Subjects still find it endearing.
Well put. Quirky but awesome.
