    brings back childhood memories. Back in the day (only 1 tv channel I think, still black and white) we had a hugely popular (teenager) series "Captain Zeppos". The good captain used one of these during his adventures to catch thieves, hoodlums, and swindlers Grin

    Had to squeeze myself under a (ugly) wooden table (top and bottom frame are parts of the table) for folding washed clothes to be able to get this shot Grin
    Also used a bit of a different conversion filter (blue I think) in nik efex, which gives her a darker complexion. She's actually holding the collar of her jacket (which explains the clenched fists). Don't think the collar holding is coming across very well tbh.

    thanks Pete for the 'silly comparison'. It has been very helpfull.
    If you still have the x100, would it be possible to see the medium and high iso results in a low light situation-photo?

    Quote:Someone remarks that for street photography you don't need wide apertures. In my view that's exactly when you do need them - because much street photography is done at night.

    We probably have a different understanding of the term street photography then.
    have a look at In-public , one of the leading sites with regard to street photography. It probably describes better what it is I am referring to when using the term street photography. Only very few photos are taken at night. And of those few, how many would have been taken at f/2?

    That said, if the night is your time of hunting, well yes, then the Fuji may not be the best choice because of the f/2 'problem' (even at f/2.8 it's not that great I think). But for me this would hardly be an issue.

    Quote:Regarding the comparison between the X100's performance at f/2 and the Olympus 17mm's performance at f/2.8, I too would like to see them both at f/2.8.

    Pete posted photos of both cams at f/2.8 already ggp.

  • Posted on: Fujifilm X100 vs Olympus EP2

    a bit what I was thinking too Pete. except that you prefer the slightly warmer tones of the Oly. I actually prefer the 'colder' (perhaps more accurate) tones of the x100.
    • 22 Mar 2011 2:20PM
  • Posted on: Fujifilm X100 vs Olympus EP2

    I have to say... I'm not sure - even if the results at f/2 were excellent - that I would use the setting a lot. Not with that 35mm lens that is. For straight forward portraiture f/2 would be nice, but the 35mm isn't. street photography... 35mm... great. But not many will ever use f/2 for doing street. landscape... same story. Environmental portraits... personally I don't think that f/2 would be my choice for those.
    So you got low light situations. But I would think I would often rather prefer a higher iso value then having to go to f/2. I can imagine some situations with low light where I might actually want to use f/2, but I think it will rather be an exception than the rule. And it's not that f/2 is unusable in case you really do need it.

    Pete, what do you think about the photos you put up... you said "the results speak for themselves", so what do they say to you?
    • 22 Mar 2011 1:15PM
  • Posted on: Fujifilm X100 vs Olympus EP2

    pfew... especially at f/8 but also at f/16 the fuji just blows the E-P2 out of the water. Just amazing detail.
    the f/2 vs f/2.8 is where the fuji loses out I think. I really need to get used to that extremely soft, hazy look the camera produces at f/2.

  • Posted on: Fujifilm FinePix X100 Digital Camera Review

    I think he's referring to putting a 35mm lens on the cam Paul, which makes it not very usable for portraiture (allthough it should be great for environmental portraits Smile ), because of the distortion. Think he's saying that - as all 35mm lenses show too much distortion for portraits, it was a mistake to fit the camera with a (fix) 35mm lens. But can't say I agree with it. So yes, for portraiture it has limitations. It's probably not made with portraiture in mind. Put a fix 50mm on it, and you're limited for landscape, street, environmental portraits,...
    And this lens is great for portraiting people with really tiny noses Smile

    Next time you see him, could you please tell Matsu Matsushita to fit a swivel screen on the follow up of the GF1. I'll buy five if he does.

    thanks for the update Pete. that's all I needed to know and then some more.
    Even the shutter speed preview may come in very handy as I have problems 'imagining' possible results. As I would like to try some more streetwork using motion blur in my subjects, this may turn out to be a very helpful tool.
    too bad the lens isn't a leica, allthough the kitlens doesn't seem to be too bad. Wonder if anyone knows which other lenses can be used on this camera ?.

    Quote:In contrast the screen only has 460,000 dots which is 153,000px. The articulated screen will rotate 720 degrees from one end to the other. It's bright and easy to view.

    glad to hear it's bright.

    Don't bother anymore, I will look for the useful bits elsewhere

    Quote:and it's great to see one that's better quality than the screen on the back. This will urge people to keep using a camera the proper way.

    huh ?

    Just for me then, as I would love to use it in an improper way... how about the swivel screen? How fast and accurate is the focusing when using the screen ? How does it work ? is the rotation limited ? Don't tell me you didn't test this just because it didn't conform with your proper ways. I understand it isn't quite as important as the placement and the size of the word lumix, but still,

    ... some useful information on the matter would be very much appreciated !

    But not sure which comments (plural) you find justified. Lou22's ? Do you know him/her then ? or the photographer ?
    or housd806's comment (posted no photos here, but does link to his website) ?
    The way both like to use CAPTIONS in their post, I just wonder if geoffholt and lou22 aren't one and the same person.

    At the time I worked for a belgian tour operator Jill. I could work on my own and it gave me the chance to see a bit more of the world, but not as a tourist. 3 years (or rather summer seasons) I worked in Turkey, near Antalya. I knew one of Mr. Yildiz' daughters through work, and since we lived in the same local village I often was a guest at their home. As his daughters had grown up in Germany, we communicated in German (apart of course from the desperate glimpses from my side and their teasing winks in return lol).
    Anyway, since about 5 years I live in Thailand and work in Bangkok for the Belgian govenment.
    Regrettably I never used my live abroad to its full potential from the photographic point of view. No EPZ at the time :o)
    By the way, I believe photos are more often a distortion of reality than a true reflection of it, a bit like memories I guess. For example people seeing my photos might be misled into thinking that I have a wonderfull happy life and am to be envied lol. But it doesn't quite work like that, does it ? ;o)
    Thanks for your nice comment(s) by the way Jill. Appreciate it a lot.
