1. Dear Guest,

    Due to the expense and work involved in keeping several small websites updated, I will soon be merging FujiXspot.com, SeriousCompacts.com, LeicaPlace.com, and ForeverFilm.org. The final site name and destination are yet to be determined. I'm hopeful that the new site will be better for everyone involved than the sum of its parts. Please let me know in the forum or by private conversation if you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions.

    All best,

A question about x100

    Not a complaint, just a request for verification that my new, to me, x100 is behaving normally.

    I notice the camera does not do a very good job of focusing on anything that is less than three feet from the front of the lens when not in the macro mode; when in macro, it does a less than stellar job at obtaining focus on anything. Is this just the nature of the beast?

    I do have the latest firmware installed.

    I'd suggest you switch to manual mode then focus using the AFL-AEL button.

    Used this way, it's very capable of taking great close up shots.

    Macro is not a strength of the X100 or X100s (I have both). However, as mentioned, MF is your best bet.
