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.

  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.
