x10 design flaw- fixable with firmware upgrade?
Nov 30, 2011

Was testing out the x10 at a camera store. Mostly shoot in A or S mode and for example when in A mode, will track how the change in aperature affects shutter speed and change ISO if needed (love low light photography).

Could not view shutter speed changes in A mode UNLESS I half pressed to take a picture....could not see aperture and shutter speed at the same time unless I half pressed the shutter button to take a picture. None of the salesmen in the store could set the camera to see both aperture and shutter speed in the LCD....and all of us thougt we were doing something wrong, that it was not possiblethat Fuji would have designed the camera that way.

From another thread I started, learned that there was not some specal setting so you can see both shutter speed and aperture in A or S mode. Huge deal breaker for me (though really like the camera). Never seen this issue on any ther "manual" P+S-like camera.

Do people think this is an issue AND do you think it easliy fixable with a FW update?
