X10: what about optical viewfinder imageborders next to 4:3?
Jun 5, 2012

As long as Fuji does not guarantee the new sensor in its delivery channels I will hold back on buying it and continue using my Canon 300HS instead. But once this will be solved I will definitely move over. One thing is still missing though fom the specs.

Since the X10 provides for an optical viewfinder, I would've expected it to follow the image dimension being chosen (4:3, 3:2, 16:9). Or as older cameras from way back: some lines mirrored inside the field of the overall 4:3 view for the other image dimensions. Even indicating by two golden lines just one, the 16:9 image option, now becoming so popular for video's and pictures on a LCD or LED TV, would suffice.

The only APS topcamera from Canon used mirrored-in lines for deliniating the different image dimensions offered as alternative. APS was the first photochemical system to provide for different formats from one camera (if we exclude the half-image 35 mm option of Olympus, which worked for the whole roll of film) And digital comes next, why not offer such a feature in a camera that so clearly shows the past in its design?

Longterm photographer from way back in the 50's via analog SLR's, three generations of video equipment towards present high end compact with HD-video included.
