lightandday: General information
Please be aware this camera is defective and all / most will have to have their sensors changed. The stock in the shops will most likely have faulty sensors !
Please read later NEWS ARTICLES on dpr "Orbs - Blooming "

No. I can't afford it. I live in my mom's basement dude.

migawka_com: Got X10 few days ago...
Sorry to say that but it is a junk camera in my opinion...:(
FUJI released some kind of pre-production model, I am affraid :(

After just 2 days of using it, I've found almoust 10 different BUGS in menu/operations. (I do have the latest firmware v 1.03....)
Even BUGS reported by FUJI as "resolved" still appear.

I've expected easy and fun to use camera with intuitive operation.
Instead, I got the most complicated camera, I've ever seen..! :(
So many strange dipedencies here...e.g.: "AF" button doesn't work if "face recogniction" is enabled and so on...crap...AF/AE lock button - I still have not found a way how to make it work - a combination of settings that disabled this functionality, somehow...

Please note that I've been using many different cameras for 20 years or so...
I've also had many different DSLRs and compact cameras (like e.g. Canon S90).

Although, dissapointed. I am still giving my X10 a chance.
I am trying to use C1,C2 to bypass menu&buttons....

This is this. It ain't something else. This, is this.

Just recieved my X10 in the mail from Adorama three days ago. Been taking pics like crazy and this is absolutely the best small camera I have ever owened. I will not even call it a point and shoot because its practically a pro camera.

So, for all of you haters, if you need to borrow 600 bucks to buy one of these -- because its so obvious that you want one -- just say so.

Stop the hatin'.

Porcytree: X10 Announcement

I have been told that the announcement will be made at 8:00pm UK time!

Hope it's a good one...

It is now 735 UK time. Lets see if your'e right in 25 minute amigo.

Look, this site claims that an announcement was coming today, so I'm expecting one today. If no announcement comes today, that will prove to me once and for all that...well, you know.

No pressure DPR, but your credibility is on the line. All eyes are watching. Be careful when you claim to scoop something.

SeeScape: No Blooming or White Disc problems with my X10.
I am a scientific.biological photographer with over 36 years experience in cameras, optics, macro, micro and digital imaging systems, etc. I have followed this discussion and have owned an X10 for several months now, as a walk around pocket camera. I have not had a blooming or white dics problem, nor have I been able to create the problems if tried. I have extensively test the X10 against my main Canon 5D Mk II and Canon 40D with a variety of lenses and in many low light and super highlight situations. I have no more blooming with the X10 under extreme conditions than with the DSLR Canons. Otherwise the X10 is a great camera, vey well made, good exposures, great sharp lens and excellent IQ.
So, I guess I am a lucky SOB or perhaps some of the X10's made it though the quality control gate in good shape. I will be interested to see how the 'X20' compares.

Could be, because if the incident medium has the larger index of refraction, then the angle with the normal is increased by refraction. The larger index medium is commonly called the "internal" medium, since air with n=1 is usually the surrounding or "external" medium. You can calculate the condition for total internal reflection by setting the refracted angle = 90° and calculating the incident angle. Since you can't refract the light by more than 90°, all of it will reflect for angles of incidence greater than the angle which gives refraction at 90°

night shooter: Oh, no! is Fuji going to discontinue the X10? ;-)

perhaps a 1/2 price x10. X5 if you will...

Has anyone been able to find a separate confirmation other than DPR about this so-called announcement?

Thinking about getting the X10, but will wait until Monday to see if there actually IS an announcement. I did some extensive searching, but find it strange that this is the only site mentioning Fuji's contrite view of this issue. We'll see...

Now stop checking out my girlfriend's orbs...ha ha ha ha ha
