    I was able to get a near mint X100 over at mu43, and got it just in time for a two week trip to Germany and Denmark. This camera is amazing for all around photography and i love the fact you can shut off the shutter sound--very discreet indeed. Thanks to the folks on the forum, especially on the "X100 Settings" discussion, for all the helpful tips.

    I was starting to think you were doing a series called "people's backs":wink:
    Looks like you're getting on well with your new camera. I also love your old Pen.

    Thanks, Luke, maybe I should have made that the title of the post! While the camera is fairly discreet, I quite haven't gotten up the gumption to do a lot of photos straight into people's faces test.

    Hi,
    I love your photos & the tight framing. Did you accomplish this 'in camera' or with subsequent cropping? Reminds me of my 35mm days. To avoid grain, you had to try & compose your shots 'in camera'

    Thanks, Glyn. The first and fourth photos are cropped. With a fixed 35mm equivalent lens, I find that I shoot many more "photos within photos" that I can crop properly later on, especially when I'm afraid of missing a particular moment.
