    This week I'm in Venice, Italy with the X100 as well as several other serious compacts (as well as some other gear). Here are a few from my first outing in Venice.

    Interesting series Lisa - street photography with a risk of wet feet! Keep them coming and let us know how the X100 is handling.

    Very nice images and you can see the quality of the images from the X100. Seems to be worth the money!

    A wonderful taste, Lisa - and leaving me wanting more! That classic of the gondolier is beautiful - and the "snatch" of the couple kissing is very arresting.

    This makes me so nostalgic. I was there last fall and I know where all these are shot. The X100 is doing a great job.

    Very nice Lisa. I'm jealous. I think when I was there last summer I shot that same woman walking that same dog through that same narrow walkway - but probably it was just real similar given how many nearly identical spots there are in Venice. I looked through your Flickr stream, some nice stuff from the X100 and the Olympus as well. Good shooting.

    Have fun - we're living vicariously through you...

    Thank you everybody. It has been a joy to have the X100 in Venice. I am also shooting with a 5DMKII as well as EPL2 and XZ-1, not all at one time though. I usually take one or two at a time but have been out for many hours at a time shooting yesterday I was out from 9:30 until 6:45 shooting with 5D 2 lenses and the X100. So much walking and many stairs and bridges not to mention that my hotel room is 3rd floor walk up. Some situations I will take the big DSLR but after yesterday and this morning too I will be carrying the X100 and EPL2 later today. Sometimes I just go super light with the X100.

    Here are a few from the X100 yesterday, the colorful one's are Burano, the other is Piazza San Marco. It didn't rain the water just comes up from the ground in Piazza San Marco with high tide.

    Tell me, with these that we're seeing are you doing any post processing or are they straight out of the camera? You are going to have one heckuva collection!

    HI Lisa
    Lovely shots - particularly those from Burano - what a fabulous island, it always seems to end up being the best day when we go to Venice. Somewhere not to be missed!

    all the best

    Beautiful shots, Lisa. I'm jealous of the location (never been and now never likely to) and the camera (well, I can do something about that). You've captured much of what I imagine to be the essence of Venice... now, like others, I'm off to your flickr pages :)

    Hi Lisa, terrific set of pictures. It was your photos that grabbed my attention and interest in the Fuji X100 and, oh dear, I had to buy one ;)
