Ok all you funky fuji hipster types. I'm after a camera bag to keep my Fuji X100s and a 13" Mac Book Pro safe, along with a few small accessories, while I wander the streets and haven't got my camera in my hand. I'm thinking more messenger/shoulder bag style than back pack and probably a style in keeping with the looks of the awesome fuji cameras. Do you have any suggestions? My current camera bags are too big as they were all bought with a dslr in mind.

Those Ona bags are lovely +Nick Cooksey +Garry Finch, I've seen them at Harrison Cameras in Sheffield but you can get something nicer and bespoke on Etsy.

My mate just got a custom fit Harris Tweed bag for his Fujis from a guy up in the Hebrides. Cost him about £120.

A couple of shots from today. My first try with the Lee Filters Sev5n system and the Big Stopper on my 23mm and Fuji X-Pro1. A very bright day but I got a few seconds for the exposure at f16. I've warmed the shot up a little in Lightroom and cropped them a little, but apart from that, very little has been done.

4 different crops of the same image. Which one do people prefer?
This is a very quick edit from the original shot in Silver Efex Pro 2, so it's more about the composition than the black and white conversion. More work will be done on that later.

Fuji X-Pro1 with 18mm f2 lens. Right, time to decide on my first photography project for 2014. Any suggestions?

First reasonable shot with my new Fujifilm X-Pro1. Was a bit of a grab shot but it ain't too bad. I did a little work in Lightroom to convert it to black and white. #fujifilm #fujifilmxpro1 #18mm  #dog #blackandwhite

Going to take a bit of getting used to where all the buttons are, aperture on the lens and shutter speed on the top dial are probably the main ones, but other than that, very happy so far. It will be nice when the other lenses arrive too, just having the 18mm at the moment is a little restrictive.

My first few Street Photography shots with my X-Pro1 and 35mm. Shot as black and white in camera and only straightened and cropped in adobe lightroom.  Quite pleased with the results considering it's my first effort.

X-Pro1 users. What camera strap are you using? The standard fuji one that comes with the camera is pretty useless.

I have the BlackRapid sport but the tripod mount fixing covers the edge of the battery cover, so it's not that practical. I was wondering about just hooking the carabiner type clip into the ring on the side of the camera. Is that trustworthy enough?

I have L plates on mine from RRS and on the XT1 I have the extra grip, which asks has a bottom plate.  Both allow the Black Rapid to connect without blocking the battery door.

Fuji xpro-1 with 18mm ordered from amazon. Free 35mm lens will be sent off for once the camera arrives, plus with the additional £50 credit amazon gives you as part of the offer, the 55-200 will be ordered too. Bit of an awesome deal I reckon.

Can't wait to get out and use it. My trip to canada next month will be a great testing location for it.

And it looks like I can get an extra £100 cashback on the lens too. Winner winner, chicken dinner!

I know what you mean. The snaps I've taken have great clarity, colour accuracy and a wonderful 'feel'. Here's hoping the slightly less rain, bit warmer and brighter Sunday actually happens! Oh Chinese New Year, that could make a great opportunity to fire it up.
