I like a lot of other people am thinking of purchasing the S100fs. My primary interest is in close up pictures of all kinds, flowers, insects almost anything small. How do you feel the camera handles focusing close up in the manual mode?

I have not tried close ups in manual mode. Perhaps I will try it tomorrow.

Hi folks... Thought I would share these...A little into my personal life... I was going to e mail them to my wife as proof that Daniel is working...( as opposed to playing video games all day long) Since the age of 4, I have had him here at work with me ''working'' ..( he is 8 now, soon to be 9) Sweeping floors, bagging merchandise, running errands in house between the machine shop and offices and so forth. I have taught him what every part of an engine is and what it does and he has a pretty good understanding of it now...He can name all the major parts of an engine... Last year I taught him how to run the dyno and how things work. I will see what he will learn this year...So basically he is with me most of the time after school and all summer... .I have always taught him that if he wants to eat, he needs to work. :-) ....In other words, I am preparing a husband and I pray that someone is preparing a daughter for him... (My wife and I have done the same for my daughters, but they spend more time with her)...Anyway, I do pay him and have him tithe 10% to our church, put 20% in savings and do what he wants with in reason with the rest...Usually video games or nerf guns...Here he is work today...

These where all shot with the Fuji s100fs













and yes of course.....

Here is a macro of a coin. I focused on his head and no flash was used.

jgredline, great shots! I can't wait until we receive a unit for review.



P.S. Off topic, but I want that motor! :GB18 or B16?? Looks like you have an awesome helper!

Billy, It is a B18C motor. You will love the S100fs when you get it. So far it is worth everybit od the $700.00 bucks I paid for it. Especially the high ISO performance.

Great shots, i will also be getting the S100fs these pictures look great without any PP, also out in daylight i bet there is no difference in image quality with the S100fs or your dslr right? your son will be a really good mechanic when he grows up
