~ new toy: FinePix X100! ~

07 March 2012

we got a new toy! a very pretty new toy!

our new toy :)

please welcome the FujiFilm FinePix X100 (oooh, nice website!) to our family. we haven’t named him yet… but i’ve been trying to get to know him since this morning.


the plan is to take him with us to Barcelona and Paris next week as our main camera, leaving the DSLR home. as for now, i’ve only been taking pictures of things around the house…

the moose

trying out the pseudo-macro settings:

thyme's fake flower

and, of course, aina. i think the result on this one is pretty good, considering how low the light was…


but i was most impressed with the picture of finch:

finch in the dark

i took it last night, when everyone was asleep. the only light source was a dimly-lit bathroom to my right. i wanted to see if it can take pictures in the dark. and i guess it can.

after only a few hours of fiddling with the camera, my first impression is that the X100 takes pretty pictures. the colors are just lovely and it works very well in the dark. the auto-focus is a little slow, though, compare to my DSLR.

however, the manual focus is almost useless. i can barely use it… i had to ask aina to stay still for almost a full minute to get the focus i wanted.

but other than that, i’m loving it. it’s small, it’s pretty. hopefully it’s good enough for us to take pretty pictures during our trips. we’ll see in two weeks… hopefully, we love it even more :)

we’re no photographers, but we want pretty pictures!

oh, dipromosiin ama lomo ya? ga pernah liat yang bagian situ. ini nemunya juga karena liat2 kamera ringan. tadinya pengen yang micro four-thirds, eh.. nyasar ke yang ini… hihihi.
