Now I know the debate filter or no filter but I was thinking darn this is a fixed lens scratch it and the whole camera goes back and I bet it is lots of money to fix. So I bought a top of the line 49mm UV Protector filter at 49mm it was not to expensive so I think it might be a good investment and from my test today no loss of IQ and no flare. I bought the Fuji version it is Multi coated with their super EBC and it is silver so it matches the camera yea!

 

Next wanted to see how the Fuji does in bright light in the JPEG only mode so I set the camera up with plus 1 sharpening, lowest NR setting(-2), Auto ISO, Auto Dynamic range and on most the Provia color setting and one in the BW setting and one in the Velvia setting(wow it is Velvia all the way). Well this cameras JPEGs rock I mean rock. I did no PP all I did was resize did I say they rock I would feel super confident to just take the SD card to Walgreens(they are cheap and close and the lab tech at my Walgreens is pretty good and their lab is Fuji :P for better stuff our Costco Rocks but they are pretty far away Walgreens I can walk to) and say print these please!

 

Seems rocks is my word of the day. Ok here are some shots not super interesting stuff just around my home but I was walking enjoying the sunny day.

 

One more note on the Fuji ateast the X100s it uses a small battery and if you have two bars left you are very close to going dead so carry an extra battery Nikon spoiled me for all the Nikon issues lately battery life is not one of them you may not know it until you use a mirrorless camera with a small battery and I use the optical viewfinder on my X100s. Yes Nikons battery life Rocks! :D

Start with a bang this is the Velvia mode straight out of the camera!  ISO 200(BASE) f8, 1/160, Velvia Preset see other settings above.

BW mode with Red Filter effect not an actual red filter. ISO 200, f8, 1/300

Provia preset, ISO 200, f8, 1/400 -2/3 Exp Comp(love the physical Exp Comp dial)

Same as above except no Exp Comp so ISO 200, f8, 1/240

This one is Provia also but ISO 800, f5.6, 1/35(I do miss VR love VR) I was set to the Macro mode so I could get a bit closer

Next one I switched out the UV and used my 52mm CPL with a step down or is it step up 49mm to 52mm ring(great investment hard to find had to get it on eBay from China but I have a ton of great 52mm filters this saved me a ton of money on filters yes I love using old school filters) and no lens hood though it won't fit with the adapter ring again is it step up or step down brain cramp.   :P  Provia was the color preset, ISO 200, f8, 1/420.

Last one I promise I know I have bored you all to death! Again the CPL setup,  had to use the foot zoom again, Provia, ISO 200,  f8, 1/680

I have to tell you shooting this way today truly felt like I was shooting Fujichrome film with a film camera dialing in Exp Comp, using real filters and shooting a prime lens and using the foot zoom to change my look. To bad the Fuji battery died on me blah never leave home without your back up fuji battery. From what I understand the newest version the X100F uses a larger battery.

You're preaching to the converted mate  :D

 

These are great shots and a perfect example of why so many people love not only the Fuji cameras/lenses themselves but the amazing jpeg engine built into them.

 

With the Vintage lenses I've been using I have gone +1 on the Shadow tone to give them a little base-bite then -1 on the Highlights as I like a gentle roll-off.

 

The monochromes it is outputting are spectacular....this is SOOC with the above settings.

Thanks BP! I will have to experiment with the Highlight and Shadow tone levels! :D  I have never done this but I can see myself now shooting both RAW and JPEG because this could save me some PP time and yet I still have a raw file when I need it.

Really nice, Jim... I notice you're really having fun with the Fuji (can't blame you)!

 

One observation though... I see Mexico and a lifetime replacement mentioned on that fancy blue tap. Will the building of "the wall" not impact the guarantee?   :lol:

Jim,

 

It is an excellent series.  I really like Image #2! Especially in B&W.

 

I have to admit, I couldn't really notice much difference in the others, where you switched filters.  Regardless, impressive results, I am a Fuji fan!


🎥 Just another Photography buff! 🎥

Nice images Jim. I'm a JPEG shooter as my software doesn't read RAW images from my newer cameras. Until I get Lightroom, I'll have to continue shooting JPEGS. I usually don't use a UV or clear filter protection buy I don't think you're crazy if you do . Nothing wrong with that. I have several step up and step down adapter rings to use different size filters on different lenses.
