thanks.. you said "if you don't need to change the diopter" does that mean some people change it frequently?

i also find that the normal strap hoops are completely in the way of camera operation :( perhaps that's a matter of getting used to

haha.. appreciate the cynicism. I actually love the upside down position because it's very natural to grab it quickly as my hand is also "upside down" when at my sides.. i also love that i can slide it over to the back so my sides have clearance when walking through tight spaces. updating my question with the exact strap i use

comment How to soften harsh shadows during post processing?
Lightroom does have a shadows slider. it allows you to brighten or darken the shadowy areas.. that would be a good start

comment how to use a circular polarizing filter
ahh.. that makes perfect sense, thanks! i tried previewing this in viewfinder but it didn't seem to make a difference, perhaps because i was testing indoors

ok thanks for pointing out some resources.

comment dropped a new fuji x100s
most (if not all) of those suggestions are for a camera with interchangeable zoom lens that doesn't apply to the x100s. I updated my question with some of the tests i got to later

comment dropped a new fuji x100s
yes, i took some photos and it appears to be working (as mentioned in my question), but i can only preview them in the LCD on the back, so can't be 100% sure if focus is working well. in fact its a new camera so i don't know it well enough to tell if there would be a difference in photo quality.

comment How can this brightly colored yet gentle pastel-color effect be achieved?
"simply be obtained by changing some sliders on lightroom". you could also say that going to the moon can simply be achieved by pressing some buttons in the rocket :)

comment automatically process raw files
right now i use the photoshop raw importer first (adjust basic stuff like brightness, blacks, contrast clarity, followed by photoshop to maybe add a new layer and use some overlays.. (actually that last step could be handled by the initial importer because a lot of the similar feel can be achieved by those sliders). i have used lightroom for a few hours, and i thought the layout was a bit easier.. but it would still be painful to process a few hundred photos..
