First photos with my MX-1

Hi. Here are some photos I captured today with the MX-1
No Photoshop. Just resized them using a free Windows application called 'Image Resizer'.

It was a little windy here and the flowers and leaves were moving. I used Program & Macro mode., 1/250, f/2.8, ISO100.

For this photo I used the "Toy Camera" filter, 1/400, f/2.0, ISO200. EV+2

My friend is feeding her puppy. "Toy Camera" (Strong) and Brightnes (-2) was used. 1/320, f/2.8, ISO200, EV+0.3

In this one I used Portrait mode. Maybe that's why the baby appears pale or maybe the Automatic White Balance failed a little... 1/200, F2.8, ISO100.

I can tell you guys, that I'm enjoying my MX-1. I like some of the filters as you can notice

There are more situations where I'm looking forward to use my new camera: sunsets, buildings at night, beach, fireworks, sports, pets, portraits, etc.

I have to recommend to have a spear battery as, after 3 1/2 hours of heavy use, the battery drained.

Thank you JinDesu! yes, it's a good camera. I just would like the lens can take external filters like an UV to protect the lens!

Thanks for your flavourful pics! I am thoroughly enjoying using mine. There's some fun and spontaneity about a small cam like this which is much harder to achieve with a full-on DSLR kit.

Thank you for your kind words guys!

I'm having a very good time with the MX-1 and sure the size of the camera makes things easier. Even though is not as small as I thought, I can hold it in my medium-sized hand with no problems at all.

p.s. I also purchased the remote control and so far, I have used it for group photos with family and friends with good results

Photoshop just used to resize the first file, and to crop the second one:
f/1.8 - ISO 500 - 1/8000

100% crop:
