I tend to shoot a lot of sunrises.  In fact, I think that I have only missed 2 days since the start of the new year.  Well today I went out with the idea of shooting for strictly black and white conversion.  I set both my X100s and X-T1 to shoot in B&W/Yellow film simulation so that I could get a good idea of how the final images would look once I got them on a larger screen.  These Fuji X cameras stand out in a lot of areas but, the one area I feel strongest about them is in the Long Exposure department.  It is small things that make them a joy to work with, the horizon level in the VF, the timer displayed on screen during exposures and the small size which makes lugging them to remote locations a breeze.  Here are a few samples from this morning.

FujiFilm X-T1  XF14mm  ISO 200  f/8.0  10.0sec.  Lee Filters .6 soft grad

FujiFilm X100s  ISO 200  f/9.0  100.0sec  Lee Filters Big Stopper

The gentleman in the last picture is the super talented (and new Fuji x100s owner) Vallen Gillet.  You should swing by his site and give it a look.  He's got it going on!
