I have "Retro Camera Plus" ($2.99) on my Galaxy 7 Android tablet... LOVE IT! There's a free version of it as well.... "Retro Camera".

On Fujifilm releases X-S1 premium EXR 26X superzoom article (383 comments in total)

I for one have become a Fuji fan. I have an S200 EXR, an HS20 EXR and just recevied an X10. I love the build quality, the fit/finish/feel especially of the X10- and I love Fuji's menu structure- makes more sense to me than any other brand (especially my Oly E-PL2)- as well as adequate external controls to access the things you need to during shooting. There's no doubt I'll be adding this XS-1 to the collection.
Cameras have been continually improving in specifications; what has deteriorated over time is the "fit/finish/feel"... the build quality. I praise Fuji for bringing this back in affordable cameras, and if for that reason alone, I will remain a loyal Fuji fan.

On Fuji X10 : a Hate & Love affair article (57 comments in total)

I just got this camera this week, and I must admit this review feels skewed and biased. Had a difficult time setting the time & date? It was right there when you power up the camera! Need to change it? It's right there in the menu!
The menu structure is as straight-forward as one could ask for... try Olympus' M4/3 menu structures! You will not have to worry about accidently turning off the camera while zooming- the off detent is seriously stiffer going into it- and probably 25-30 degrees beyond the position it starts to stiffen. I'm very happy with the initial picture quality, I haven't yet had much chance to experiment.
Comparing this camera to a non-mainstream Ricoh product (which- to me, looks bizarre) is unfair and obviously skews the review. Remember it's a highly customizable compact with excellent build quality and a fast lens, not a high-end DSLR and you should enjoy this camera a lot.
