Hi all

My first post here, I've had my X1 for a short while now, what a fantastic little camera, lovely to hold and use.I thought I would post some of the pictures that I've taken so far, some are from a motor sport event where the focusing performed brilliantly. My previous camera was a Cannon 400D, I'm still blown away by the quality of the Leica lens

I, too, thought your shots were terrific. With that said, I have now had my X1 for a couple of months and I am quite familiar with its strengths and weaknesses. In particular, on the photos above, I concentrated my attention on the green foliage in all of the shots. We are now in September and the color of spring foliage is long gone. What we are supposed to see are far darker and deeper greens in the summer foliage. I live directly across the street from Fort Tryon Park, here in NYC, and the foliage is so thick right now, it feels like Vietnam walking through it. The color of the leaves are a deep, dark green. Yet, my X1 paints the greens as if it were early Spring. The same holds true for the green colors in the photos above. Is this a weakness in the "standard" color setting on the X1? Yes; that is if we are talking about accuracy here. The lime green colors we see above are beautiful and persuasive but are they accurate? No. I am not saying that this is a weakness in the X1 but I do find it to be an interesting anomaly. The X1's rendition of greens is not accurate but it is poetic. Pick your poison.

I am using DNG/JPEG (RAW). And you? I find the rendition of greens to be fairly consistent with the photos on this forum. I would expect this at a certain time of year, but not now, not right before the Fall. In fact, go back to the very beginning of this thread and take a look at the photos I posted of flowers in late July. See the similarilty between your photos and mine? For instance, take the photo of the rose bush. I think the colors are beautiful and convincing. I know for a fact, however, that the greens were much darker without nearly as much yellow in them, if at all.

For DNG Inthink if you use LR there is a fair difference sometimes with colors between "Adobe Standard" and "Embedded". I find the rendition quite different sometimes, other times not. Problem with all these converters or even the in camera jpegs is that everything is one big mystery black box.

A fantastic building, very well captured.

 

Thanks David!

 

here's one taken few days ago from another angle. There's a double helix bridge for pedestrians leading to it. Like a strand of human DNA haha...

 

I like this building for its futuristic appeal. Very star trek...:D

 

Thanks for looking!
