munro harrap: Its just a digicam like a g Powershot Canon. Dont be deceived that it in any way resembles the x100 which is APS-C or recent Sony offerings. It'll be noisy, slow in operation and a waste of money. In 2003 they were OK. Now, forget it, grow up and buy a camera with a decent-sized sensor. Street photography requires lack of shutter lag. You have to be very quick. None of these cameras are. You need less than 0.050 millisecs delay.
Do you have any idea how far someone can move in that time at normal walking speed close to the camera? Well, even that is not fast enough
OK. We see what works for you, but we're not all like you. My x10 is arriving today and I'm excited about shooting with it. I think the configuration will work for me as I think it will for many people.
maksrossi: But the sensor cleaning is possible?Is an important issue.The canon g9/12 suffer from dust on sensor pumped by the zoom movement only remouvable by service repair.
Tip on how to keep sensor clean?
It sure looks good but I hope the AWB and CWB is easier to use (through the dials) and more accurate than it is on the 5n. Had a tough time getting good results in mixed lighting and worse at high ISO.
