Fujifilm FinePix X100 Accessories Update

We have shipped an extremely limited amount of lens hoods to the USA market.  Cases are delayed now and I hope to have an update soon.  More hoods should hit the streets before the end of May as well as another X100 camera shipment.  Thanks for your patience.
Updates - I share your thoughts on the need for another firmware upgrade, and in time that will happen.  Until then the camera is a lot of fun to use and the quality of the files are awesome.  
Today Apple released their Aperture RAW compatibility for the X100 and I'm thrilled.  I can do so much more with my images and turn off the jpeg function in camera.  The image below was hand held.  Just took a breath and squeezed off the silent frame around 11pm one night.

    Thanks for this...

    Can you comment as to possible firmware revisions?

  3. Nice photo. Did you shoot several to reduce vibration? Or, were you lucky the first time at 1/25? I don't think I could be that steady.

  4. Can you comment on whether it is a good idea to convert files to Adobe DNG format? For example, is it a lossless conversion?

    I'm asking because DNG files are about half the size of the corresponding raw files; and that's within the plausible range for lossless conversion.

  5. Where can I get an x100 in NYC ?

  6. @ark, DNG is lossless conversion. It's a nonproprietary RAW file format containing the RAW data from the camera sensor, but stored in an "envelope" whose parameters are published and known, rather than proprietary and secretive.
