Default Another set of X-S1 images for you

G'day all

Touring southern Queensland at the moment and came across this fella "whoopin it up" with some last-minute crop dusting before sunset. Sunset was less than 1/2-hour away when I first noticed the plane

1- Crop Duster finishing off before sunset

exif=1/250 @ f5,6; iso320; 600mm

2- ditto

exif= 1/250 @ f5,6; iso320; 600mm

3- ditto

exif= 1/250 @ f5,6; iso320; 600mm

The plane landed for a quick refill, then up for the last flight for the day
4- Light is falling quickly - up to ISO1600

exif= 1/1000 @ f5,6; iso1600; 600mm

5- ditto

exif= 1/1000 @ f5,6; iso1600; 600mm

Hope you enjoy them - a few more showing some of the X-s1's capabilities

As always, comments welcome
Regards, Phil

Overall I'm still very happy with the camera, tho the poor autofocus does get to me from time-to-time

I'm also discovering 'funny' things that happen / do not happen when combining burst vs EV+/- choices

If I did not have the Xs1, the new FZ200 with its fixed f2,8 zoom would attract much of my attention ~ however the extra size of the Xs1 large-sensor that attracted to the camera does a great job > the couple of 20" x 30" posters I have done recently are quite spunky and sharp

Any other Qs?
Regards, Phil

Nice shots Phil, haven't seen any of these guys in a long time. I used to see them often when growing up in Memphis, TN. Keep them coming. I was hoping to go over to Boxley Valley and get some shots of the Elk with the X-s1 as the early rut has started, but seems I will be dealing with the eye and surgery for the next few weeks.

Pls tell me about the shutter lag on the X-S1. I've read as low as .01 sec, .1 sec, and <.3 sec. What's it really like?

Also, how is the EVF?

I have a Canon SX40 and my major complaints are the shutter lag and the difficulty I have seeing thru the EVF. I'm searching for a reasonable ( and light) replacement for wildlife photography travel and I'm tired of lugging my Canon T1I with Sigma 80-400 lens thru airports, etc.

Hi Tish- I've owned both the SX40 and the X-S1 and autofocus speeds and shutter lag were quite similar.
If you scroll down these two pages you'll see the "timings" section back that up.....

Fuji-
http://www.ephotozine.com/article/fu...a-review-18445

Canon-
http://www.ephotozine.com/article/ca...a-review-18216

Indeed,the X-S1 is slightly quicker at wide angle- though the quoted 0.6 secs for the Canon is nonsense- it's quicker than that- unless its getting dull outside...!
The "shot to shot" time can also be improved GREATLY by switching off the image review on the SX40- and indeed any camera for that matter.
Aside from lag/AF speeds etc however- the speed of composition from a manual zoom cannot be matched by a zoom lever- nor it's accuracy.

My "bridge" camera at present is the Panasonic FZ-150- and that's the quickest of the "bridge" bunch in ALL aspects- however, even that will struggle to keep up with a DSLR's speed...

http://www.ephotozine.com/article/pa...m-review-17714

Word is,however,that the SX50 is quite a bit quicker than the SX40- and Panny' now have the FZ-200...! I wonder if there's an X-S2 on the way...!!
Can't wait for some timings on those....!

Thanks for helpful info. Do you have access to similar info regarding the EVFs? Like size, pixels, coverage, etc.?
