I would add earplugs, spare reading glasses, and pen and paper.

Nikon tossed the name "Nikkor" around far too liberally, applying it to just about every one of their run of the mill compacts. Now that they have produced a premium compact, "Nikkor" has no special significance.

ERKG: Fujifilm is an innovative company that did not choose the easy conventional way to create their cameras .They could have consider using proven conventional Sony sensors in their cameras and sustain their business well with these sensors like many other camera makers do nowadays and avoid risks they live today.However Fuji chose the innovative and risky way.In x-10 they did it well but soon understood that the great image quality of that sensor was accompanied by a sideeffect ,the ORBs.Obviously they are now in a very hard position because of this problem.If we look with a customer's perspective we can easily accuse them and obviosly we are right.However if we look from companies perspective this is actually a very hard situation to manage.Yes Fuji did something wrong but because of their innovative POV and their willingness of reaching better image quality made me look tolerable to this matter.I do not want to see Fuji fade out from the market because of this failor.

Not exactly a stunning admission of guilt. Who wrote this for them, Rush Limbaugh? They built a faulty camera, put it on the market, and hoped no one would notice.

Stunningly horribly ugly! There is a lesson here, if you are going to use and outside designer to design your camera, have to good sense to use an Italian, not the British...

Barney - sorry to say our last book store in the Monterey area of any significance has closed for good. Santa Cruz, CA has a big independent book store with a decent photography section last time I looked so maybe I will try there next trip.

A photography book review without picture from the book? Ridiculous!
