Lovely and interesting content!...

But most of the shots I looked at look rather soft which takes away a lot of their impact.

Is it? They look relatively sharp on my monitor, in fact I think some might be over sharpened as I set sharpness to hard.

They look generally sharp on my screen. Indeed, in a few cases slightly over sharpened.

Hi Rainman,

These pictures taken in Shanghai/Nanjing? Some food pictures look like Cantonese BBQ food to me. I love food pictures

Thanks for sharing these lovely pictures.

The sharpness is fine with me, I think a small increase in sharpness will make some pictures here oversharpened.

May I suggest you select some favorite ones, upload to dpreview gallery of your account here, then post those pictures plus the link to your flickr account. These beautiful pictures deserve more replies.

Thanks for the kind comment.

They do have Taiwanese/Canto style restaurants there. While generally having a weak stomach, I did not venture much of the street food there.

It's a very versatile compact, high hit rate for me so far. Colors and sharpness are close to what I want to achieve, overall very useable jpegs with minimum PS require.

Thanks for sharing these lovely shots with us.
The pictures are really cool.
The color does look great , also.

The flowers picture is cool as well the picture of the old lady.

The chicken in clay recipe was a complete novelty to me.

(And I have not seen all the pictures yet ).

Sorry, by 'soft' I meant not so much the sharpness but their rather faded (or hazy/toneless ?) look. Although the sharpness in some is not so good but I'll agree that in most it is adequate.

I found the content really interesting, thanks for posting...

I'm guessing the flatness is mainly due to the jpeg engine, it's more obvious with smaller sensor.

Afterall each X10 filesize (6MP) is just 2.5-3MB big, the same DSLR 12MP raw -> jpeg gives me > 10MB per filesize. That amount of data really makes a difference in the image quality.

I have to say X10 serves its purpose well

Generally speaking when visiting a place as a tourist, staying away from street food is good idea. Save a lot of non-resident medical fee

Once Fuji fixed the ORBS problem, the X-10 is most likely the great replacement camera of the F30 and F200exr for many enthusiastic photographers.

Some X-10 pictures by some excellent photographers.

I have both F30 and F200exr. It is very difficult to take the above 3 pictures with either one of them.

Many outstanding X-10 pictures from Taiwan
