    I've not been entirely happy with much of my photography of late, but I was happy with this one, shot last night, with the XZ-1

    Thats very good.

    On my Flickr the XZ-1 has by far the most viewed images. I should never have got rid of mine!

    Thanks, Andy :)

    I keep thinking I want to move it on to make room for something else (X-10, G1X) but then I use it for something, and find that really... its enough. I went out last night with the X-100 to get exactly this shot and try as I might I simply could not get the exposure right, even in auto. 61 shots later, I got out the XZ and pouf, done.

    Thanks Nic, I think it was your neon may prompt shot that made me remember that Harry's had neon. Nearly all the neon in this town has been replaced by other kinds of signage.

    Thanks Sue, wonderful shot! After seeing this, I would buy a XZ1 if I hadn't one yet ;)

    Excellent shot Sue. I played with an XZ1 in my local camera store on Thursday, but was able to walk away - if I'd seen this shot first I would have definitely bought it!
