Photographers using the great Fuji X100 struggling with the camera RAW files and for a good reason. Lightroom, maybe the most popular RAW developing software, just doesn’t do the work when it comes to Fuji’s RAF raw files. For many of us, Mac users, the RAW developing software provided with the camera isn’t an option at all, as it doesn’t work on OSX Lion. Saying that, even for PC using photographers, its not the ideal concept to have an additional workflow for this camera.

Fuji really did an amazing work with the image processing abilities inside the camera. Thanks to that, photographers now can get amazing Jpeg files with a great dynamic range, wide  tonality and impressive colors straight out of the camera. But what if we do like to keep the RAW files, with their great advantages?

After almost a week with the Fuji X100 I’m a very happy person.

Many people are saying that compering the Fuji X100 to the Leica M9 is stupid, and they are absolutely right! The Fuji is a camera that will save the great pictures you take on the memory card, while the Leica is a camera that will destroy your pictures and memory cards.

Saying that, The Fuji is much more cohesive  with the original concept of photography! and since it can save the pictures it takes, it’s a much better camera than the Leica M9. Nothing to argue about. The Leica M9 though, is much nicer male Jewelry if you are into all that x fashionable metrosexuality thing.

After being very happy with the X100 in various conditions, including making sure it can take pictures of bricks (as Leica photographers always claim that there cameras can take great bricks pictures) I decided to check out how can it shot in the rain. At night.

Most of the pictures were taken yesterday after 8:30 PM eastern time.
