Thanks Charles and Daniel - and Paul for including the X1

Daniel: I knew about the different brands of sensors (Kodak/Sony), but I was not aware of the difference in crop and that the M8 had a CCD sensor. Thanks!

Test of longer exposures (30 seconds) from my balcony. Had they made the bottom of the X1 just a millimeter thicker, it would have fitted into a standard Arca-Swiss clamp.. but no. Fortunately however the camera is so light that you can just place it on the plate of the ballhead on the tripod..

Luka, Nice shots, and great travel cam!
I have always felt the best photography is done, with the camera that you have with you, and not wishing it instead.

Luka....wow.....wow! I will say these are the first great shots I am seeing from this camera. It seems that not many are using it. Is that because they are sold out or nobody wants to pay $2,000 for a 'P&S' type camera? I know....not a P&S......

I have been wanting a smaller pocket/jacket type camera and totally overlooked this one. May have to consider it

Thanks Ryan!

I think the reason is the price in comparison to comparable cameras (such as the GF1) in combination with its well documented shortcomings. The camera isn't very good at all - the sensor and the lens on the other hand are very good. I think many people are willing to give up a bit of image quality for usability and in that case the Panasonic, Olympus & Sony alternatives are better. If you on the other hand prioritize image quality, well, then you can learn to live with the faults of the camera as then it can make sense.

Charles: Great pictures! I really like that last portrait.

PSquared63: I love that second shot. Very nice rendering and good choice of light.

Thanks Charles and Denoir. I love the way the M8 files convert to B&W.

H00ligan,. love both shots but the golf ball shot is really cool.

Nice work with the Nokton gregoryniss.

+1

Some more X1 shots just I grabbed this evening. Unlike yesterday I was a bit disappointed with the results - the color rendering is pretty weak compared to a 5DII with Zeiss glass. Yes, you get vivid colors, but they definitely lack the subtlety that you get with a FF sensor and good glass. Furthermore as the sun went down, it's shutter speed of 1/30 when set to Auto ISO is not enough for steady shots. At least a third of my shots were blurry due to camera shake. This problem is attenuated by the fact that the LCD is very low res so it may look like you nailed a shot while it in reality is very blurry.

Anyway, the shots:



































This was actually a really nice sunset so I actually regret not using a 'proper' camera for this..

Thanks all! I've seen so many wonderful images posted in this thread - Nice to see a heavy leica thread I guess

When I took that golfball shot people looked at me like I was nuts That's my go to place when trying new things out.

Maybe not so exciting, but here's another that was taken shortly after. Sorry for the compression artifacts, but I don't think anyone wants a 4xxx pixel image posted in here :/

Are some of the other sites (like smugmug) better with their resizing (I don't mean to hijack!)?

Nice images.Its nice if you include which body and lens you used as well as the iso settings.So that we can see how these images stack up to Canon / Nikon etc.

h00ligan, flickr seems to do very well.

Sorry, all mine are X1. The golfball shot was ISO 400, the Baby candid was ISO 800 , and the last image I posted of the golf course was ISO 100. The idea behind framing the bush like that was to try and create a feel of casually overlooking. Not sure if it managed to work or not yet... lol.

Denoir - I really love the vivid colors in your shots, particularly number 2. Would you mind sharing your general sharpening settings for x1 shots? Jpgs are very flat but have a nice clarity to them out of the box (I use the raws though). You clearly have a much firmer grasp of this art than I!

Usually if I see that I'm too fast in low light - I try to bump to a -2/3 ev to avoid going too high on ISO, then push them up in post - it seems to work well so long as I don't go past -1ev (in near dark) as I find the x1 raws to have a pretty good level of headroom and range.
