X10 Review by Major Photo Mag
Feb 14, 2012

Excuse me if it's already been mentioned here, but I just read Popular Photography's X10 review. Only major negative cited was viewfinder's lack of data display. Otherwise, quite positive. No mention of "orbs." Then again, my sense is they don't do much (if any) real-world testing.

It was mentioned

And it shows exactly how useless that magazine is as a resource for camera buyers.

OK then, obviously the ORB problem is a non issue. Popular Photography is a towering giant in the world of digital cameras and if they cannot get ORBS the problem truly must lie on the users end.

Not user's fault...

There is an orb issue.
This is debated to death...
We all know when it appears.
For most people it is a non issue.
They will be very happy with OOC pictures.

What a peculiar comment to make associated with me on this, of all days. In an earlier thread I praised your effort to bring the problem fully to the fore and condemned Fuji's response to the problem to date. And in this thread I conclude the OP with: "Then again, my sense is they don't do much (if any) real-world testing."

Sheesh, ratty.

I know Tim, I was just being facetious. Not attacking you or anything. Making fun of Popular Photography was my point.

You know, that was my first instinct...and I should have gone with it. Apologies!

I was feeling kinda edgy because (a) I haven't followed the X10 coverage all that closely and (b) I had the nagging feeling I couldn't have been the first to note that very superficial review. Don't really read that mag, but was browsing newstand and saw the cam on the cover.

Now, where the hell's that Re-Set button?

Yeah, I need one everyday. Sometimes more than once.

(Then again, so far I've been lucky and gotten another day to reset. Hopefully, I'll wake up tomorrow with another one.)

My father-in-law, sort of seriously and sort of tongue-in-cheek, will say midway through the day if something goes wrong, "I'm going to start my day over right now."

Absolutely no worries. It happens in this form of communication. No apology necessary.

There are orbs.
The trolls are hungry.
Feed them some Fuji snacks.
My refrigerator has lettuce.

That is funny
And also quite profound
I have never been good at poetry
Because I can't get the words to rhyme
Not that that matters if you are writing a Haiku
