Well done to DPR...yes. But are you seriously thanking Fuji? They released a camera with a seriously flawed sensor, and u are thanking them 4 providing what they should have provided in the camera (a perfectly working sensor) to begin with?...amazing!
U do also realise that if you own the X10 that it's going to be a pain in the butt having to get the sensor fitted? There is the hassle to take it (or post it) to be repaired and also the hassle of being without a camera for a few weeks at least too. I wouldn't thank someone for that.
This must have been the biggest error I have ever seen on behalf of a camera company. They had no other choice than to fix the error. And don't believe for one second that they didn't do it for you and me. Sure they tried a useless firmware first when it was clear to the dogs on the street that it was a hardware problem. They did everything in their power to avoid this.
Charrick.....You keep calling the respondee photographer a "he". It's a woman. Who's the "douche" now, eh?
jmmgarza: I teach iPhone and iPad photography at the local university and I found the list quite disappointing. Yes, it's an eclectic mix, but not a very useful one.
(for petessake)....the definition of photography.
"Photography is the art, science and practice of creating durable images by recording light or other electromagnetic radiation, either electronically by means of an image sensor or chemically by means of a light-sensitive material such as photographic film."
So iPhone and iPad *is* photography.
