Hi Will,

Great capture, and nice record of fun times. I like the B&W. Did you capture it that way or is this a post-processed image.

My wife just left the house with the LX3. When traveling (internationally), she carries that camera and I'm carrying the X100. For travel in the USA that is supported by a vehicle, I'll carry whatever of my Nikon kit that makes sense.

I wish my X100 was under the tree. It is unfortunately at Fuji as I write - I had the sticky shutter blade problem. I started noticing some kind of erratic exposure problem near the end of a trip to Italy in September and it became progressively worse. Interestingly enough, since most of my shooting was indoors or at night, I was able to capitalize on the cameras excellent results at f/2. As the problem progressed, it remained intermittent until finally it was reliably reproducible and constant. So last week it went into the shop. Near the end of it's demise, I also used the ND filter and exposure latitude in RAW files to coax out some usable exposures during the times it decided to misbehave.

Here are my grandkids beating their dad at a card game played from both sides of a glass table.
