My X100S was utilized in a commercial shoot for Dallas Symphony Orchestra’s 2014 Beethoven Festival Banner (80 feet by 18 feet) which hangs on the side of their building. I chose to make the image with this camera due to its leaf shutter. This was shot with a studio strobe and a parabolic 51″ modifier at f11, 1/640 shutter speed to reduce the ambient light.
That’s quite a capable litt’l fellow! Congrats, the real master is light creator

What can one say but WOW! Beautiful image by a photographer who knows his equipment. The X100S is “S”imply amazing. Now I want one even more.
Thank you Frank. If you get one you’ll love it as I do.

In this case I found that using a ‘wrench’ instead of a ‘hammer’ was the right tool for the job. This was my second time using the little Fuji for the DSO and I could not be happier. My other shot can be seen here. […]
