i guess...
its what we need in the rest of this world ... there are so many programs for photography... yours , lots of others , all trying ...and so many brands of cameras... lenses. all trying...

not just one, or a few... googles or amazons or apples or microsofts.....
open things up ....

that seems like a good little camera , some of the older cameras , they did them right . trying to get them into our hands ...
Agree, I certainly 'nerded out' on checking into some of these older cameras to see what offered unique images and quality- also why I've got a Sigma DP1s, there is something unique- same with those who love CCD sensors. The newest cameras are stunning, albeit very expensive and of less interest to myself, video being a key aspect. Great to include, but why pay for the extra if you don't use it.

Interesting reply about the programme choices available, there really is so many, and choice is certainly a nice problem to have. However, it's because of how overwhelming the range is that I'm trying to actively avoid getting into the obsessive editing and corrections...it's time consuming beyond a hobby to my taste.

I've an urge to sample film again, simply to see if people have a greater acceptance for imperfection, but digital is the economical option.

The latest Fujis offer 18 film simulations,the first gen offered about 10.There are plenty who still use the early models because they produce more"filmic" images.Something interesting is that some of the original people who worked on the film development are using that experience for the film simulations.

there is nothing quite like film ...
i usually can see its a photograph right away , when viewing pictures...
you too i bet .. and nothing like the feel to use an older film camera.

but ......

oh well .
these fujis remind me most of any of a film camera... sorta..

and i'm with you , the less post processing the better. ....

My X100s is the only Camera i use where I just shoot it in Jpeg and I'm just happy with what comes out. It's also a pure joy to use with the manual dials and feel. If you like 35mm FOV (I personally love it) then get one. It's kind of a stand alone camera that I think anyone who likes that focal length should probably own one. I'm not a "street" photographer either. It reminds me more of the super basic camera's I used as a kid or even the disposable film cameras in that it's sorta a travel slideshow type focal length for me, if that makes sense. 35 isn't too wide but not claustrophobic feeling like a 50 or more to me.

It doesn't need to be the latest one either, probably anything X100s onward to get those initial speed improvements. I have the s.

I don't know if the Xpro3 works with Pentax limited lenses but that would be a pretty nice combo too.

Me too,but only have Pro1.

Also have OMD10 but mk3...and K3.

We have similar stuff but i use plenty of others too.

The 100s is nice,only thing wrong is it uses a different battery to the ILC Fujis.
