The X100 has been busy these past days, shooting at a private party and a business function. None of these images however are available for publication. So let’s dig further into earlier catches.
How good is the X100 up close? The ca. 70cm minimum focusing distance when using the optical viewfinder is often misunderstood as a lack of close-up capabilities. Just switch to the electronic viewfinder and you will get a lot closer, and even more when you enable the macro setting.
The X100 will likely not become my go-to camera for ‘serious’ close-up and macro work: a D700 with a dedicated macro lens is hard to beat. But it looks like I will not have to shrug away from moving close up when it’s just the X100 around.
