Update: X10 serial numbers and sensors
Dec 11, 2012

I just bought an X10 locally as a gift. The serial number begins with 22A. I haven't had a chance to do an "extreme" test, but the best test I could do in my house during the day didn't show orbs. (In a house, the bright light source also illuminates the background, so it's hard to generate the wide difference in brightness.) I called Fuji's US branch and talked to someone who is actually involved in the replacement operation. He said he hasn't seen any 22A cameras come in for replacement. Since they've been out for about a half-year, this may indicate that relatively few of these have the old sensor. This disagrees with some of the postings here, which suggested that about half the 22A's had the old sensor. I just hope that the one I bought is OK, so that the recipient isn't stuck with this issue.
