Fujifilm X10 Preview Samples Gallery

By dpreview staff on Nov 14, 2011 at 20:14 GMT

We've published a gallery of 32 JPEG images shot with the 12MP Fujifilm X10. The X10 is Fujifilm's first foray into the luxury end of the enthusiast compact camera market, and takes many of its styling cues from the APS-C format X100. Key features include a 28-112mm (equivalent) f/2-2.8 zoom lens and Fujifilm's unique 'EXR' sensor technology. Our samples were taken in a range of different environments and in a range of different modes, including the 6MP noise and dynamic-range optimized 'SN' and 'DR' EXR modes. 

Note: the way in which the Fujifilm X10 implements its 'DR' (dynamic range) EXR mode is rather curious. In addition to accessing it via the JPEG-only 'EXR' setting on the exposure mode dial, it is also possible to shoot both JPEG and Raw files in 'DR' EXR mode by manually selected medium (6MP) resolution, and choosing 'DR200%' or 'DR400%' from the shooting menu. Several of the samples in this gallery were shot using this combination of settings (which allows EXR 'DR' use with full PASM exposure control) and they are captioned accordingly.

the grainy noise from this x-10 is very similar to the nikon V-1/J-1, just look at the iso 3200 (SN or DR 6MP). wow. If you want a very clean image don't buy this and nikon 1 system, but the 3200 iso is very usable! just like V1 but with more desirable retro style body and form factor :) the normal 12mp 100 iso image is clean though :) unlike V1/J1
