Warning: as much as I like these Shapeways products: they use UPS for delivery which can be a bad surprise with up to 50% additional costs to what you payed to Shapeways!
Basel Zoo with the X-T1 and the 55-200.
A comparison of the film simulation modes for the X100s. I have highlights and shadows set to -1. The descriptions are Fujifilm’s own.
- Provia/standard – ideal for a wide range of subjects
- Velvia/vivid – vibrant reproduction, ideal for landscape and nature
[I don’t agree! ;-) ]
- Astia/soft – softer color and contrast for a more subdued look
- Pro Neg. Hi – ideal for portrait with slightly enhanced contrast
- Pro Neg. Std – ideal for portraits with soft gradiation and skin tones

I did some tests and the tele converter is better suited for the kind of macro pictures I want to take (pictures 1-8) than the DCR-250 (picture 9): the pictures are sharper, there is more depth of field available and the tele converter has many other uses apart from macro.
