  1. Spring Cleaning Time and I am offering up my collection of vintage photo literature: These are guides, instruction books and advertising and promo pieces that I have acquired over the years. Some may not be all that vintage, but are interesting just the same. Several of the guides are still useful for those hardy souls shooting film. THERE ARE MORE ITEMS THAN THE ONES SHOWN IN THE PHOTOS! I came across MORE STUFF after I shot those and am just too lazy to re-shoot! More good stuff and I probably will find (and include) a few more by the time the sale is done. $15.00 for Everything, Including Domestic Postage! .
  2. NOPE! Just got one and it is more than 1/4" too wide, hanging over the edge of the screen and basically useless.
  3. My "homebrew" solution: scarp bits of aluminum, brass and wood and a day's worth of filing and sanding. Works!
  4. Just got a 'new' X-10 and am looking for a glass screen protector. I had an X-10 a while back and I remember that the screen is the same size as one or more of the more popular DSLRs, so I was able to fine one easily. Unfortunately it was a while back and that camera is long gone and I don't remember which DSLR had the same screen size. Anybody help?
  5. Reluctantly, I am selling my Fuji X-100S. I bought it with great hopes, mostly because it was styled like the Leicas I used for decades. I agreed with all the reviews: the lens is spectacular and the X-100S design and construction are over the top. Sad part: despite all that, I somehow never really used it much. So now I am offering it here together with some custom accessories. So about the deal: First off, the camera it self is in immaculate condition. No dings or scratches, lens protected by a top quality filter (B+W Brand), and a screen protector on the LCD Screen. In addition to the filter and screen protector, the following is included: Filter Holder and Vented Lens Shade - 2 Battery Chargers (One Fuji, One After-market) - 4 Batteries (One Fuji, 3 After-market) - Computer Connecting Cord - Original Owner's Manual - SQUARETRADE WARRENTY with over a year of coverage. - You also get the Original Fuji Lens Cap and Retaining Ring that nobody ever uses, but there they are. I am also a hopeless gadgeteer and I have added a few custom features to this package: – CUSTOM BRAIDED NYLON PARACORD NECK STRAP: perfect size and design for this camera, very comfortable. I removed it from the camera for these photos since I could not get it to look right otherwise! – CUSTOM GRIP: I fabricated this myself because there is nothing on the market that really fits this camera correctly. This provides a positive non-slip grip while allowing easy access to camera controls. The photo is a 'selfie' of me holding it and really doesn't do justice to how comfortable it is. It is made from aluminum, brass and wood with textured rubber padding. – MODIFIED THUMB REST – OK, I started with a stock 'no-name' thumb rest that fit, but like many others out there, it put much too much strain on the hot shew. I added a brass shim spacer that take virtually all the strain off that connection and makes for an even more solid grip. These are actual un-Photoshopped photos of the camera and accessories offered here, not stock shots or anything copied from another source. Price: $550 - including shipping to Continental USA. Location: New York City
  6. X-10 vs. X-30? For years my 'carry around' camera was an X-10. My travel outfit was a pair of them and I have always been happy with the results. A couple of years ago one of then finally gave out. I tried replacing it with an X-100s, but after a year, I still don't feel comfortable with that camera and I will probably end up selling it. Anyway, my current “problem” is whether to pick up another X-10 (so I have a back-up camera for travel) or to try an X-30. Seems I get the same lens and same sensor either way and the X-30 is a bit larger and most listings are a few bucks more than for the X-10. If anyone has owned and used both, your suggestions would be most appreciated. Thanks!
  7. Bought a second hand x-100s. No complaints. Thanks to all for the feedack!
  8. That's what I was thinking, but I wanted to be sure. Thanks!
  9. ......at least it seems dumb, but I gotta figure it is worth asking before I do something even dumber. I recently picked up a used X-100s - It did not come with the Fuji CD. Now, according to the manual (which I do have) I should not connect the camera directly to my computer to download photos before I load in the CD. I have PS and LR. I have loaded photos from the SD card with no problem. Do I really need the CD?
  10. I went looking for a GSS Glass screen Protector for my x-100s; found lots for the 100F and 100T, but none specifically for the S. Anybody know it the screen sizes are the same on the S? Thanks!
  11. Just ordered a couple of Wasabi batteries and a charger. Thanks!
  12. I just received my “new” X-100S, purchased on eBay. Great camera in fine condition, but the Fuji CD was not included in the package. So, first off: do I need it? If so, can I download what ever I need there on line? I currently use Photoshop and Lightroom and have downloaded images from SD cards without any problem, but not directly from the camera. Also: how do I find out the current firmware in this camera? Unless I am missing something – very possible! - there doesn't seem to be anything on the camera's menu about it. Thanks!
  13. x-100s! -my thanks to all for the fine replies to this post - Most appreciated!
