Once again the hugely craptacular Fuji X100 proves itself Not Fit for Purpose

Image
Tomorrow, I swear, I'm going to buy another walk-around camera and will consign the Fuji to the Thames.  I'm crossing Jubilee Bridges. It's dark. Ahead of me I see two topless Japanese males with what look to be some amazing tattooage. And then they both strip to their nethers and stand looking out over the Thames towards Westminster. Now, Jubilee Bridges on an autumn evening isn't a great place to be getting out your nads, not just because of the slight cold but because, well, I'm sure there are laws against it. So, I get out the Fuji and join about 10 other people for a truly once-in-a-lifetime photo opportunity. And the Red Light of Death is on the Fuji - not there previously, it means I have about 30 seconds to get a shot. So I turn the flash on - forced? No, slow sync - I don' t know why, probably my mistake, though why the thing isn't on automatically I have no idea - one of the seven million modes doesn't like it and I don't have the sixteen…

Apologies if the next few pictures look familiar - they have been posted here before but I'm revisiting them with a view to possibly sending them off for consideration for publication. The theme required is Quiet Colour (well, Quiet Color to be exact). Anyway, I'm not sure any of them will make it through my own vetting process, let alone the external process, the one that counts.... So, as you were.
