I wasn't going to buy it until I saw that it doesn't have an LCD. Now I'm not sure if I can resist.

I demand a second opinion! According to that STUPID test I'm 50% hipster.

That's a bitchin' looking set up.

Mankins are lumps of cold, dead plastic. But that doesn't mean they don't turn me on.
With friends like these, who needs mankins? I do, that's who.
I love pinging my junk with a rubber band. Dr Snip taught me how.
I lead an underworld cult of mankin people.

To be honest, it would be kind of cool to have a Fuji X100s with no rear buttons or screen or anything digital at all. Just shoot and sort it all out in post. Icon_smile

However, it wouldn't be $18,000 cool. Icon_rolleyes

You already have a cool, screenless 8x10 (or does the ground glass count as a screen) with which to amuse yourself. I think a screenless X100S might put Fuji out of business. Couldn't you just tape a piece of aluminum foil over the screen and pretend it isn't there?

My 8x10 is too big to be hipster.

And side note, I've now officially exposed 26 sheets of film so I'm more than half way through the box. That means I can sell the camera now. Icon_smile

That's sounds like what Art Bell would do.

So you wanna sell the camera and include 13 sheets?

I blacked out the back on mine. It helps me when people "Oh how do i look, can i see that?" And i just show them a blacked out back and say its film.

Oldschool leather case, some tape and done.

Just a convenience thing, you can still see the pictures you took in the EVF so its not like im trying to shoot blind specifically. Just dodging annoying people.
