Gizelle at Rest

Uploaded: August 06, 2011


Just got my Fuji X100 camera today. This is one of my test photos. The optics are first class. Handheld at ISO 1600, wide open at f/2, manual mode at 1/60 sec and of course at 23mm. And guess what? No worry about sensor dust. It is a keeper!
All the talk about poor egonomics and functionality prepared me for a horror show. Instead, I found it to work great. Changing ISO, exp value, focus points, viewfinder or LCD for shooting is pretty automatic. This will now be my carry-around.

Exif: F Number: 2.8, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 5/300 seconds, Flash: did not fire, compulsory flash mode, ISO: 1600, FocalLength: 23.00 mm, Model: FinePix X100

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed.
