Overpowering the Sun
This photo is the exact reason I bought the Fuji #X100S. Taken a f/2 at 1/1000sec this is basically straight out of the camera. The X100S has a remarkable flash sync speed up to 1/2000sec. Explaining why this is important is complicated, and others do a better job, but my very expensive SLR can only do 1/200 sec which means I cannot use the flash with a wide open shutter like this and get this kind of photo. The end result, as you can see, is very impressive.
