    Does the X100s let you rear-curtain sync?

    Excellent work, by the way. I've never had a problem using just a 35mm prime for shooting a reception, but seeing a full day captured from this focal length is inspiring.

    Incredible! This is far better than I expected could be done with only a 35 mm lens. Congratulations.
    A question: what about the lighting?

    Thanks for sharing. The camera is clearly good, but looking at these makes me certain it's the photographer who is key. Nice work.

    Nice set of natural poses and some lovely shots on the stairs, it looks as if the
    X100s may just be a perfect choice for informal and unobtrusive work at weddings, parties and other events.

    Intereseting to read your comments about the manual / split image focussing as it is soemthing I think will be very useful when faced with challenging light / subjects.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Excellent work Brian. So many great shots. You are a talented photography for sure, regardless of the camera.

    Very impressive. I'm "afraid" your photos will also lok great when you shoot with a p&s camera of $59,99. ;)
    If I am ever going to marry again I will contact you!
    Thanks for sharing,

    Your work shows that the versatility of the x100s with its fixed focal length is only limited by the photographer... in your case, there appear to be no limits!

    Thank you for sharing your work and impressions... (in spite of the marital tension to which I fear they may eventually contribute :) )

    I don't want to speak for Brian, but my understanding is that he doesn't process using VSCO, but does everything himself in LR. Perhaps he can comment.

    They produce and market a piece of software that works as a plugin for Lightroom/Photoshop/Aperture than emulates different film stocks, allowing users to shoot digital, but easily achieve a similar look to film. VSCO stands for Visual Supply Company.

    So, the on-board flash does not let you rear-curtain sync, but you can set an external flash to rear-curtain and it should work... I *think*. I prefer first-curtain syncing in general, so I haven't had a lot of experience with rear with the X100/X100S, but if I remember correctly from testing the capability, your flash will go off at the tail-end of your exposure. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong!

    Sorry-- I'm not sure what your question is about lighting. Can you be more specific?

    To be clear-- I didn't say "split image focusing." I was talking about "focus peaking." Two very different things.

    It's not VSCO. Just my own tweaks in LR RC 4.4.

    Thanks, everyone! :th_salute:
