I was thinking about this very same point last night and how odd it is that the X100s, a camera designed and made in Japan, a country with some fierce summer storms, is not a bit better sealed. I was thinking this while at a local festival when an electrical storm hit and the rain started to come in sideways.
Incidentally, a few days ago I wrote about how pleased I was that I didn’t feel my X100s was a G.A.S purchase. What I didn’t mention at the time was that I wasn’t so sure about my new Billingham Hadley Pro. However, after last night’s downpour, where the old Domke would have failed me, I can now proudly proclaim the Billingham as a necessity. Again, phew!
