Re: Do some people not realize the X10 is a point and shoot ??

I agree - although to be honest I think that most decent photographers can coax decent images out of most half-decent cameras nowadays, even those which are "only" a point and shoot.

Sure, the X10 is not going to be capable of stunning poster-size prints, and images may look grotty at 100% viewing size too. But for viewing on the web (which is probably what most people do with their images), printing at sizes most of us can afford, or making into photobooks and the like, it ought to be quite capable in all but the more demanding circumstances.

Clearly you're never going to be able to control depth of field like a larger sensor camera, and there's a limit to what you can expect with noise too - but other than that, it should be reasonably capable. And in terms of noise, my first impressions are that it is rather better than my Olympus E-1 SLR - which was perfectly adequate for many professionals only a few years ago - times and standards move on....
