Summit_pg: Hopefully this means that Nikon can finally kill off the ignorant '1' lineup of cameras.

Sorry, I should have been clearer. I was referring to the good sign that Nikon is squeezing in a DX sensor into smaller cameras. You are totally right about there being different market segments. I just can't help but feel that the '1' series is a mistake like the good old Pronea line.

On Fujifilm firmware attempts to fix X10 white discs news story (264 comments in total)
In reply to:

Summit_pg: I'm sooooo happy I sold my X10. Well over a month ago users already knew that the update would not be able to fix the issue. People need to realize that Fuji DOES NOT CARE about this camera or those who bought it. Sell yours while you can still get a decent return and buy a camera from a better company. I'll never buy another Fuji again.

That was exactly my issue. I tried to return it but was outside of he return period. I tried to get it fixed under warranty and was told that the camera is fine and within spec. So did I sell a broken camera to someone else? No! I re-sold the exact same thing that Fuji sold me!

On Fujifilm: more X-mount cameras and X10 firmware on their way news story (184 comments in total)
In reply to:

Almeida: "The firmware update [for X10], that addresses the hard-edged white discs or orbs generated when highlight regions clip, will reduce but not completely remove the effect."

That doesn't bode well...

I am pretty close to selling mine too. I'll wait for the new firmware to come out and give it a shot though. Even if the firmware is 'ok', I think I'm still going to terminate my ownership of the X10 and stop any further Fuji purchases. Its just not worth dealing with Fuji's HORRIBLE quality control.

Summit_pg: Too bad this roadmap does not say when/if Fuji will fix the other broken cameras that they have on the market.

The new Fuji X10 and the Fuji XS1 have an issue with the sensor. It turns highlights in an image into completely white burned out orbs/ovals. Does the same in RAW. No way to save the image if it happens, no way to prevent it. Only thing that seems to slow it down is shooting at high ISOs. Fuji says its 'normal'.

Summit_pg: This is cool and all, but honestly, why not fix the current cameras? Fuji has the X10 and the XS1 on the market right now and they are crippled by the white dot syndrome. Fuji has not done anything to fix it yet...

I will never buy another "new" Fuji camera. Apparently they do their quality control testing on actual consumers. Buyer beware.

Fuji needs to spend less time making things look pretty and more time making things work properly.

Sadly, I'm an X10 owner. I will never purchase another 'new' Fuji camera ever again.

Queue the ORBs...it shares the same sensor, and same issues, as the Fuji X10.

Do something sooner than later Fuji. This kind of garbage coming out after the whole aperture blade issue with the X100 is making Fuji products look like junk. Love the X10; hate the baggage it brings with it. Signed: A disappointed X10 owner.
