I am not a professional photographer but I have remained passionate about photography for a long time now. I am currently using Nikon SLR gear primarily for indoor architectural shots. I wanted a compact camera which had a fast zoom lens, which looked good and had the manual features which I required. It also needed to produce acceptable image quality. I looked at other options such as Sony R100 (fantastic camera but too expensive where I live), Olympus oz-1 and even Fuji X-20. I shortlisted ...

Bought it 9 months ago. I started serious amator photography in 1969 with a Pentax Spotmatic. I shoot mainly vacation landscapes and family portraits or social occasions. And I prefer to avoid flashes: direct flash is ugly, except in sunny backlight, and bounce flash is bulky. I own a Sony DSC-V1 (expert compact with razorsharp vario-sonnar len 33-132 f2,8-4) since may 2004 and a Pentax IST-DS DSLR with quite a bunch of lenses (transtandard and telezooms, plus 1,7-50 FA, or portrait in low ...

Strengths: Beautiful build for the eye and the hands. Gorgeous colors straight out of the camera. Wonderful in-camera raw conversion. Dynamic range far beyond its class. Weaknesses: No information in OVF (solved with X20). Steep learning curve if one wants to explore full capacities of hardware and software dynamic range settings. Now to my story: Last year I gave this camera a four star review. After seven months of shooting I sold it on auction and bought a mid range Nikon DSLR and three ...

It's a very friendly camera that has the advantage of having a precise size to move everywhere so we'll use much more than a large professional camera. It has everything you need and more to get excellent professional photos! :-)

Just a few thoughts on my new camera..... I recently bought the Fuji x10 from Currys - ex-display for £269. I was looking for a small compact to carry about with me when I go walking/sailing etc. I also have a Nikon D7000 which due to its size and weight is used far less frequently than it should (when you take account of the investment it represented!). The X10 is a fantastic little camera - all the more so at the price it's available for now. I really like B&W photos, and love the way it ...

Since january 2012, I took 99% of my photographies with it. I love my EOS 500D but the X10 is smaller, lighter, totaly silent, so always with me. The image quality is really good, controls are sufficients. It's behavior is very good in low light (the lens is very bright) and I nearly never experienced 'orbs' To be perfect, I would like a bigger sensor (more bokeh) and a longer tele... In the same volume (I'm dreaming).

I am VERY impressed with this camera. I took it on the Rocky Mountaineer train trip from Calgary to Vancouver http://jpfarrer.smugmug.com/Other/Rocky-Mountaineer-2012/25469335_bf82zW#!i=2097983646&k=q2VxPC6 - all the low light and wide angle shots were taken with the X10 (the rest with a Pentax K7 and 50-200 zoom). It also shoots amazing video in low light. This camera is better for the serious enthusiast than for someone who wants a "point and shoot" but other than that I would highly ...

I mainly use this camera outdoors on climbing/hiking trips, and that's my main interest. By far the biggest plus point is the speed and quality of the lens. By far the biggest minus point is the battery life. The camera produces excellent images (I have a recent one, so no orbs) and in particular it's dynamic range in EXR mode is very good, and really helps with landscapes. The viewfinder is far from useless, and it's a massive help in sunny conditions. The lack of an automatic lens cover is ...

These are really just my first impressions.... A very interesting little camera. Feels like a little Leica. Acts like a little Leica in terms of the controls being very nicely implemented, with nice detents and a clever zoom/off ring. Takes photos that look like Velvia film. Easy to see why people like it. That said, this is a camera with issues. I got it because I wrote a tool called DeOrbIt to remove the white orbs... and white orbs are much more common than I expected, although they're ...

Am on a continuous quest for something small and serious, that doesn't cost the earth. Right now the X10 has everything I want in spades: 1) Decent price - beats all current advanced compacts in price (except the XZ1, but better IQ) 2) Versatile lens 3) Sharp imaging 4) Very decent low light ability (and multiple low-light options!) 5) Techno-wizardry that adds to your image options 6) Some sort of VF Ticks all the boxes for me pretty much, the menus are a bit of a handful at first, "quirky" ...
