I want an x100. - Page 2

post #11 of 31
Thread Starter 
I'm recently single again, so pretty much anything goes.






I might shop the 135+cash for one if I like it. Maybe I can just keep the 50D for... something.

As an anti-burglar clobbering tool.

Shane had an X100 for like a week, so much lolwut. I JUST realized I think I would probably really love to own one of these. If it turns out I don't like the 85L, I'll try one of these out.

Thoughts?
Don't do it.
I had it for a while and hated it.
Like you mentioned, it is indeed a beautiful looking camera, and that about sums it up. It just looks good.
AF is either a hit or miss. Out of 10 shots, I would probably get about 8 in focus. Not only that, your going to need a darn fast SDHC. I tested a class 4, class 6, and class 10 and all cards had issues, and etc.

I agree and dis-agree with this post. I agree that it looks awesome. I also agree that the AF (if you don't know how to use it) sucks.

But .... And this is a huge BUT.

If you take the time to learn how to use an X100 and learn it's fall backs (The slow AF -- Not bad AF .. Just slow) -- It's a fantastic camera in the right hands. If you're used to a DSLR AF system, the X100 AF is slow and it does take some getting used to. But if you manually focus (Which is fast) or simply learn to use the AF like a point and shoot camera, this thing is golden.

I disagree with who-ever said that it battles the 5DMKII in noise. It doesn't. It comes close but it's still way off in relation to the QUALITY of noise and most importantly, the detail you lose.

As for the buffer -- I agree with that. It does take forever to read / write onto SDHC and it's annoying. But then again, this is a point and shoot. It's not like you need 8 FPS with a huge cache. You aren't going to be covering sports or weddings or some ****. For a point and shoot, this thing is fantastic when used right and used for WHAT it is -- Just an every day camera that takes awesome frames of every day things. When you start expecting it to be a DSLR, it falls horrendously short.

Figure out what you need it for. Then give it a go. It's only like, $1200.00 at the moment and I've seen some AMAZING images taken with it.

Oh and FYI -- No, I don't own one. I'm not a fan boy coming to it's rescue. My brother owns one and also about 10 buddies who are pro' photogs own them and I constantly use them, every chance I get.

I dig the little thing.

But I don't have time to take personal photographs these days so that is the reason I haven't bought one ..... yet.

On this forum, this usually means one of two things:

1. I don't have the money for it... yet.

2. I can't convince my girlfriend/wife to let me spend that kind of money... yet.

Haha!

Two things you'll soon learn about me if I keep posting here,

1. I have more money than brains. (And hey, I'm pretty dang smart.)
2. My girlfriend is the biggest enabler you'll ever meet. All I have to do is say, "Honey, check out ..." before she'll reply, "Ohhh! You should get that!"
