Well Done DPR
Image on-screen manipulation is pretty hard but I think you've done an excellent optimal job.
Keep it up
and a Happy New Year to all of you

Rol Lei Nut: A FF rangefnder with liveview and a *great* EVF, simple, direct controls and IBIS, which can mount my Rolleiflex and Leica R & M lenses.
Autofocus is not necessary, => *as long as the EVF is good enough* (ideally I'd like the viewfinder of my Leicaflex SL, but that would be impossibly expensive to make and would preclude being able to mount all kinds of lenses).

The new Leica M is a step in the right direction, but is too expensive, has no IBIS and the EVF isn't good enough for fast *and* accurate manual focus with non-rangefinder coupled lenses.

A compact FF dslr like an Olympus OM would be nice, but it must be able to
1) mount at least all lenses designed for slrs (sigh! Goodbye M lenses....)
2) have a truly good manual focus viewfinder, something *no* dslr has managed to do yet.

We've seen so many innovations, gimmicks and tricks in compact cameras and yet nobody has had a go on a tilting on board flash head. They try repositioning the whole flas unit away from the lens but is it so hard to allow adjusting the flash head (up or down) once the unit is up?

The 'Last Post' time stamp shown against the threads in the listing of 'My threads' (ie when I press the letter 'm') is very often wrong. It may show 1hour and yet when you open the thread you see it was 3 hours. Must be easy to correct to reflect true times (?)

The same way I can mark some member as 'ignore', it would be useful if I could mark another as 'favorite'. In long threads, especially in the Retouching forum, I may only want to see the work (or comments/replies) of the people that 'I' think will be more useful to 'me'

Let's say I want to add more than one photo (from my gallery) to a posting. Say I want to add the last 4 images I uploaded. I click on
"Add a photo from your gallery".

Their thumbnails show in the order 4, 3, 2, 1 ie the last one uploaded shows first. But I want to display them in my post as 1, 2, 3, 4.

Please offer 'reverse order' when more than one thumbnail is selected.

Well done DPR for immediately putting the new X10 sensor to the test. Readers can judge for themselves the improvement 'before & after'. Your test would have been even more useful if you included the same image taken by another 2-3 cameras of the same class. Then your test results would have been even more informative.

If you cannot add the other cams' images here, I hope you include them in your full X10 review.

PaoloBosetti: That's a pity. I actually find Gravatar a useful way to centrally manage my avatars, without having to upload a picture again and again, every time I subscribe to a new site/service/forub etc. This is a step back, IMHO.

Very good idea and implementation. Works as it should.
Cannot see how some people have problems.
Keep innovating!... :)
