Digitall: I think that from now on the Fuji will have difficulty selling the EXR sensor product to someone who is minimally informed about this fail.
Hello - the Fuji X-S1 also has the balls (orbs)
frank_be: Today I shot a picture of ice parts on our gardenpond. I've experienced orbs and one orb even had an extra bright blue circle around it.
Shot at 1/160th, 28,4 focal length. I can't find the ISO on the Mac and I already erased the original from the SD card., but is was ISO 400 or lower. It was shot in P-mode.
I'm going to check with the shop where I bought my X10. I'm seriously thinking of returning it and look around for a replacement.Low light AF is also below expectation. Even taking handheld outdoor pictures in wintery overcast conditions was very hard to do. I don't really know why this camera is supposed to be good in low light conditions. I really hope I have a bad example because I really like its looks and way of operating. But it hasn't convinced me picture wise.
I could call myself a Fuji fan, but with this kind of quality it's not possible to call myself a fan.
Edit: Firmware 1.03
I think, for ISO 200 and "ORBS problem" looks good
Here it would then also be ORBS - on the water, etc.?
you mean this from @ sarkozy:
Francis Carver: Oh, Fujifilm... They still in business? What on Earth for, I wonder?
FUJI will they survive Mr. Carver - definitely
Sorry - I can not agree
Jostian: And now that the Firmware has done nothing to remedy the situation Fuji is VERY quiet... which I think sux! Just fix the sensor in new X10's and replace those in X10's already purchased... if you don't the damage (which is already pretty distinct) to Fuji's reputation is just going to increase exponentially, I wonder if Fuji have seen the Fujifilm forum on this site, its pretty scary at the moment, 90% of threads relate to the Orb issue and people are VERY unhappy!!!
The X-S1 also has the ORBS-problem
the X10 is a awesome Cam with a little ORBS-Problem.
There is no end of the worldonly a small error in long-term recordings and direct recordings in reflected light
max metz: Really loving the Fuji x10 from when I first got it, a remarkable camera for the money, it takes beautiful images. The flaring characteristics are unusual in that they are circular, that's it, nothing I see is bad enough to justify all the fuss that's been created.
On the positive side the camera performs as if it had a far bigger sensor inside it, the dynamic range is stellar sand the low light capability impressive - its a beautifully made piece of gear and a joy to use.
thanks für Voting !!!
mike kobal: I really wonder if those leaving the most immature and retarded comments would have posted if they had bothered to take a look at the series this photograph is part of. Fascinating to see such lack of humanitarian values and respect expressed by a large number of pixel peepers here on dpreview, a sad day for photography, for sure.
Do not go overboard, Mike
Reg Natarajan: I'm surprised we're not hearing from more gearheads worried about what lens he used and whether he shot using HDR. Whether you like the shot or not (and I do), I think everyone should take a second to realize that this photo would be no more powerful if you could see better what what was in the shadows, or if each hair on his head was individually discernible, or if the RAW image had more detail. Photography is only minimally about gear.
Brilliant photo, symbolic of a brilliant movement. May our brothers and sisters in Yemen soon be free.
Egypt is free??? You believ?
sarkozy: I think this is not real
Crap, why have not taken mine?
frank2001: I found this page on Fuji's USA website but no download.http://www.fujifilmusa.com/support/ServiceSupportSoftwareContent.do?dbid=881266&prodcat=234644&sscucatid=664260When you click the link to "instructions" you get "page not found"Anyone know what's going on?
Unfortunately, the problem still exists after the 1:03
For me, no big deal, because I avoid subjects that can lead to ORBSNevertheless, a major annoyance
I wonder about item 4
The problem is not only in EXR Auto modeFuji has been sleeping?
frank2001: They must have pulled it?All I see is version 1.2 on Fujifilm's site
no the 1.03 is available 5:15pm
'The arrival of DSLR video has been a great creative revolution and in the long run'
Yes!!! I now use both: video and photo - and have no problem
David Clarke29: Whatever, I shall keep the X10 - HOWEVER I find it totally beyond belief that a company the size of Fuji could let a sensor design fault as portayed by the X10 pass acceptance by their quality assurance department.
The whole thing smells of commercial expediency and marketing pressure. This particular camera suits my shooting requirements but personally I will never again believe the marketing hype issued by Fuji or/and their accolytes again. Needless to say, further Fuji purchase is a no no.
Whatever, it is still an excellent "Point and Shoot" camera.
