    The new JPEG film simulation on the X100T. I just got the camera today. It came late so I only was able to take 3 shots before the sun went down. I better like this because you won't be able to shoot RAW files for probably 3 months... Lightroom apparently doesn't recognize the RAW file because it has a "T" after it. Hopefully they will get that straightened out, but I bet it will take 3 months. I think that's how long it took with the XT1.

    Love the camera. Especially because I can assign one button for the ISO and the other for the built in ND filter. Those are basically the only two controls I use since I shoot Aperture Priority.

    I did try out the new hybrid viewfinder at home. Honestly I would actually use it for manual focus. The frames lines adjust and are really accurate. It has feature where the part in focus is highlighted in the little box in red, blue, or grey. The focus ring is a bit small but after a couple of tries I got used to it. I am going to try it out more next weekend.

    F2, ISO 200, + built in ND filter.

    Actually I think shooting just the JPEG's with the film simulations might be a good exercise. After all if you load your camera with Porta or Velvia or whatever you have what you have. I have printed JPEGs off my other X100 and they print fine at 12 x 16.

    If Jpegs are as good as in my X-E1, then you have no trouble. I really like that film feeling the classic chrome shows. They say I can't get it for my X-E1 unless I go elsewhere.

    My friend has an XM (great little camera BTW). We update her Lightroom to the new one with the Classic Chrome setting. The new version only supports the new X100 and the XT. Why they need it on the new X100 is a mystery. It's already on the camera.

    I will say the Lightroom preset is almost exactly the same. I think they will add to the XE and XPro at some point. Probably in early 2015. It's really nice. If the sun is right it's great for portraits.
