Fujifilm X100 with WCL-X100 Conversion Lens

X100 @ 19mm Effective 28mm - F/2.0 @ 1/6th Handheld ISO 800
I've basically left the WCL on my X100 since I got it last week and I love the flexibility of the 28mm equivalent.  Here are a few snaps from around town over the past week.  The images are at ISO 200-1000 handheld.

 Nothing like flash to freeze some unexpected action like a spilling drink!

Gotta love the VELVIA Film Simulation mode

  1. Thanks so much for these examples of what this conversion lens can do - it looks great! Hope to purchase one myself down the line - especially after seeing these photographs.

    Hi. Where were the cemetery shots taken? Looks like a very cool cemetery.


A Quick Look at the 1972 Hasselblad 500C/M

Just a few snaps of the awesome and durable 500C/M.
