No. I do not have any insider information about next X100 series camera.
But I named my Fuji X100 as X100M. X100 Monochrom (sorry, Leica…). Well, obviously it is not only a name that changed but I put it to shoot B&W JPEGs. I deserve a special B&W camera. And X100 is perfect for that. I have special relationship with this camera, so, it suits well for a special task. X100 is also quite slow camera to work with. This is actually good for my monochrome work. Better not to have all fancy bells and whistles.
I use the following B&W settings:
- Film simulation: Monochrome + red filter
- Sharpness: M-Hard
- Highlight tone: M-Hard
- Shadow tone: Hard
- Noise reduction: M-Low
Those settings combined with the use of exposure compensation provide results I like. I may even attach again my TCL-X100 tele converter to test it with my new X100M. 🙂
May the Force be with me.
