Nice beauty work. Your samples should put many concerns to rest that the lens is not sharp. I can't wait til March!
Man, you got a 3D pop on that last; great shot!
Very nice photos! Bokeh is beautiful even at F11. OOF rendering on last photo is much better than from most 24mm lenses in 35 format IMO. Love the colors - is it in Astia mode? Could you post some examples of lens rendering @ F2-F4, please? Thanks again!
Could you please tell us, does the camera have film imitation mode? If it does, what is it? Provia, Velvia, Astia, what else? Is there BW?
Ilja, here you go, taken from the official x100 website: Film Simulation Bracketing (PROVIA / Standard, Velvia / Vivid, ASTIA / Soft) ( http://www.finepix-x100.com/en/x100/technical-specification )Brandon, are these processed RAW files or finetuned camera JPEGs? Nice colors and sharpness, though 35mm seems not ideal lens for fashion/classical face portrait (at least to my taste ;-)
Pretty model, and except for the last image, ugly iPhone big-nose aesthetic. That last image reads f11, 1/125, iso 200 so no ISO noise, bokeh or even lens sharpness judgement to be made as the image isnt even full size. No film simulation, nor dynamic range expansion info available either. No info if it is a processed RAW file or camera-tuned JPG, as previous poster asks. So its basically one more pretty teaser. As soon as as FujiFilm allows you, please post a full size iso 1600 DNG converted shot, using a tripod and F2 - F2.8 - F4, sit back and watch your traffic skyrocket...
You have really good working I like it, I have also some information of Fashion
I'm on the fence, and I like your images with the X100; bookmarked your site, so I'll be back for more. Can you comment on the autofocus performance?. Thanks.
What's nice? Wrong focal length for these shots gives the model an ugly nose and distorted head. Shows exactly what the limitation of this camera is.People really want to love this camera but it is way overhyped. I have a cheap panasonic Lumix that takes nicer portraits than this. seriously!
In "fashion" photography, the emphasise is meant to be on the clothing, not the model's face. This is really just a series of empty portraits.
