Nice image! I have noticed that with the X100 to my eye, I can go down to 1/30, and even slower... In the present case, could have been useful to limit the ISO - but not necessary, images are astonishing up to 3200!

Auta i lomë! And my Nikon's only awaiting daylight...
Thanks for commenting. I do have to say that this is one of the most inviting behind the bar scenes I have seen in a while. In this case, I definitely could have dropped the ISO and gone to 1/30, since I was actually extending the camera out with my arms out with the strap taut against my neck for added support, framing the composition through the LCD. Given the darkened environment it was easier see using the LCD to frame the image and be steady. Most of the time, I use the optical viewfinder. I think though, as you have noted the ISO is just fine. X100 is a little jewel.
Great shot, I love the colour and detail. The X100 delivers, and is small enough to always have with you. Even though I use the bigger X trans cameras, and am selling my X100, I often think I should keep it; maybe I will!
Phil, thanks for looking and commenting. On this outing I had my new D600 and the X100. I often have the little one around my neck and the SLRs in my Think Tank bag. Given my experience with the Fuji X10 and X100 and the info I have read about the Fuji interchangeable lens system I understand your thinking. But, if I were you I'd hang on to the X100. It is just that wonderful. Of course, it would be very hard to tempt me to get the interchangeable lens X units. I just have far to much invested in many lens with 2 DX and 2 FX Nikon cameras. I need to use more what have! The D600 with Nikkor 20mm f2.8 and 16-35 f4 and 28-300 along with my X100 are leaving for the Arctic next week to capture the Northern Lights. Wahoo!
Awesome, John - that should be a fantastic trip, and shooting opportunity!
Unfortunately, perhaps, I got into the interchangeable lens X system, with the X-pro1, and am crazy about it but, my D600 and D7000 are being neglected and need some love. Problem with two systems is, I want lenses for both of them, but don't know which I'll be using more in the future. It goes completely against my belief in using one camera, and getting to know it like the back of your hand. Anyway, both the X system and DSLRs have unique abilities, so I hope to use both for a long time to come!
Have a great trip, and look forward to seeing your images from it! Cheers!
