GaryJP: At the point when even Fuji acknowledge the issues, and say they will have a "DEFINITIVE" solution, you have to wonder why some people are such devoted "fans" they continue to suggest it should not be mentioned or discussed.
If we had all listened to them, there would be no fix in the works even now .
So I guess at this point it comes down to their personal pride and their refusal to admit they might be wrong even when Fuji admits it.
The X10 sure set a new standard max , but probably not the one you're thinking of.
aeneon: Anyone who says the orbs are not a problem for them know very little about photography or take extremely DULL photos or BOTH
Max and Dork are two of the biggest offenders of saying " Those who get orbs suck at photography" and look who came out shaking their rattles when i reversed the statement. lol.. got to love it.
tiberiousgracchus: This is what I call one Passionate thread. Some have divorced the X10 some accept its deficiencies and carry on. Some on noticing have decided to have a break and return to Fuji at a later date. TBC I dont own one but it looks lovely and apart from the orb issues seems to take lovely images. Just sort the orb thing out and we can move on...
Histogram on the X10 is useless.
My point above was meant as a "DIG" to all those Fuji suckups and shillers who claim anyone who gets orbs doesnt know how to use a camera . THAT is far more hurtful than my statement above. Get over it
Realfi: I have held off purchasing an X10 while waiting for the review here. Basically I was trying to determine if, even with the orbs issue the X10 was on balance still a camera worth owning.
If Fuji can fix the problem obviously that's a win/win but things have gone on long enough that I'd still like to see a review in the meantime with an update if/when the problem fix comes along.
Dork really needs to open his.
GaryJP: The news is out there.
You can't put the genie back in the bottle.
The hornets are buzzing.
What ban !! he comes back as CrashKills4 . No respect for the forum or its users.
Anyone who says the orbs are not a problem for them know very little about photography or take extremely DULL photos or BOTH
Usual twaddle from the dork
Its gone past the point of no return for me , i have moved on and dont care less about the X10 or its dodgy on off switch , poor focusing and blown out reds . I am going to wait for the X11 or X20 now.
sgoldswo: @Roland Karlsson not much benefit to me of posting here other than having spited an obviously organised online hate campaign about an issue I haven't found to impede real world use of the camera. I didn't say much about the obviously overblown Nex 5n clicking issue, even though I thought that was bunkum, but the spite and hate I saw on this thread made my blood boil.
I would encourage people to try the camera before they believe all the the rubbish posted here about it.
I would encourage people NOT to buy it, i did and returned it after 3 days, the orb prolbem is a fault within the camera and i had orbs on day one. DO NOT BUY THE X10 AND THEREFORE ENCOURAGE THE SELLING OF FAULTY GOODS AT £400 + ITS PLAIN ROBBERY AND FUJI SHOULD BE ASHAMED.
The troll here is so devoid of any reasoning, so just pop him on your ignore list and only converse with those sensible enough to see both sides of the coin.
graynoise: As a very satisfied owner of the X10, I'm surprised by the attention and anger the orb issue has generated. Perhaps I'm too cynical, but it feels like a bit of a beat-up. On one level I appreciate the attention to detail of the DPR test, but on the other hand I think it takes away from so many great things about this camera.
It would be interesting to see a show of hands from owners of the camera.
Pop Quiz, Fuji X10 orbs:
a) Major issue. I want my money back!b) Disappointing, but not a deal breakerc) Minor annoyanced) What's this about orbs?
Disclaimer: I don't shoot a lot of metallic balls with my X10, or sunsets over water, and before reading this test was unaware of the orb issue.
a ) and GOT my money back.
sgoldswo: I own the X10 amongst a host of other cameras (A900, NEX 7, X100). This obsession with X10 "orbs" doesn't do credit to DPR. It's very embarrasing to read this tosh continually. This is a non-issue in real world use. My X10 is a great little camera and I've seen the orbs maybe 3 times in the time I've owned the camera.
You do end up wondering if some of the people on this forum have been paid by other camera companies to make a fuss about nothing. It was the same with the video clicking on the NEX 5N - a complete molehill turned into a mountain by a few reviewers/posters.
If people have this much of a problem they really need to get a life...
Yes, ORBs dont exist to people whose heads are buried up their own butts or Fujis.
The likelihood of Fuji having updated the sensor in newer X10 models or even recalling the X10 in future is pretty much zero.
The " before and after firmware update " always makes me laugh when i need one.
I returned mine, loved the camera but not the serious issue. If its fixed i'll buy one again.
John_I: BIG disappointment! It was clearly not an EXR issue (c'mon Fujifilm, let's get real.) but a widespread one across all modes. Great pics but NOT in the conditions I know to be the case. Here is what it can do. http://jbipix.com/?s=fuji I don't post pics of stuff that does not work. But .... Fujifilm, FIX it or admit that you're just a second class wannabee.
It would leave a better taste in my mouth if they just admitted it . I'm returning mine tomorrow as i only had it two days.
ohpreis: I don't have any of those but I'm considering getting me the Lumnix LX-5. Camera and price seems right.
LX5 is a very good choice.
a firmware update will just be a patch of sorts , if i was going to spend over £400 on one of these i'd want one with a sensor that actually worked properly from the start .
24fps video ?? !!! i wont say it coz you all know already.
