Need Help: My New x10 seems to have a major IQ problem.
Jan 21, 2013

Hello everyone.
I just got my new X10 from This is a first camera for me. So far my only experience with photography has been with phone cameras. However I have been reading a lot about photography and hence chose x10 as my 1st camera for its manual controls.
However my 1st set of shots below, all shot on AUTO mode, seem to indicate there is some major issue with my sensor. Just would like to confirm with other x10 users that these images indeed aren't the norm for the x10. I can't imagine they are.
The camera seems to have the updated sensor and came with firmware version 2.0 straight out of the box. The images are extremely noisy and when viewed via hdmi on a 42" television, they seem worse than any standard camera phone.
Is this most likely an issue with my camera or is it possible that there is some settings that I may need to change? AFAIK I have left everything on AUTO.
Please share your inputs.
You can download the originals from here:
