Six Snaps

I grabbed a couple of snapshots [with the new Fujifilm X10] on my commute home this afternoon. Nothing spectacular, but they do show the three different Fuji film simulations: Provia, Velvia and Astia. All of the images in this post were shot as large fine 3:2 JPEG files, and are straight from the camera.

This farm looks much better in morning light, but I was running late this morning and didn't have time to stop. Anyway ... All three shots are at ISO 400, f/8 and anywhere between 1/850 and 1/1100 shutter speed. The buildings are about 1/4 mile away. And, although you can't quite see it on the web versions of the pictures, pixel-peeping reveals that there's actually visible detail in the fence at the middle of the picture -- you can actually see the wires in the fence "fabric" the farmer used to make the fence.

For the next series, Donna got to be my guinea pig.

All three of these are hand-held in the kitchen under about 160 watts of incandescent light. At ISO800, there is visible noise, but I don't think it's objectionable. The third shot with the digital zoom enabled is pretty darned impressive. You simply can't tell it's on, even pixel-peeping in Lightroom 5.2.

Obviously, I have a bit to learn about using this camera -- it's a different beast when compared to any other digital camera I've used. I can't wait 'till the weekend when I get to shoot with it at the Maryland Renaissance Festival!
