THE Telling Conclusions X10...
Nov 7, 2011

Cutting to the chase....
Forgetting the technical specifications and looking at reality...

From LL:

"As far as noise goes, there is none to speak of up to ISO 800, at which point it's visible on-screen at 100%, but hardly in prints. Even 3200, as seen below, is fine. I would judge the noise as comparable to that of an APS-C sized sensor of a previous generation camera. "

"Small sensor cameras aren't most people's first choice when it comes to low light work. But the X-10 will tend to be an exception to that rule because of its fast lens and high ISO IQ. As can be seen in the example above, shot at night at Lincoln Center in NYC, ISO 3200 is quite decent. Even a 100% on-screen crop, as seen below, shows acceptable noise. If this had been shot in raw and with a little luminance smoothing in Lightroom, it would have been even better than the camera's slightly heavy-handed in-camera noise reduction."

"The quality of fit, finish and materials is first rate, and belies the camera's price point. For anyone over the age of forty or so, who remembers when cameras didn't feel like they were made from molded lumps of polycarbonate, the Fujifilm X-10 will bring a smile to your lips when you handle one, even if you don't decide to buy it."

"As far as autofocus speed goes, it's as fast as any contrast detection system that I've used. That means really quite good. The shutter is responsive, and with the shutter sound effect turned off the camera is essentially completely silent."

"Add smooth handling, along with image quality that really does challenge any of its competitors, and you have a compelling camera."
