X10 focus integrity

Thats just is though, you can clearly read the shop signs and also the shoppers clothing details are sharp etc. That means we've got enough DoF to go from where they are walking to the shops across the mall, so how do you know how well the camera was focusing ?

While Im sure its decent for what it is I highly doubt it would work for fast action or sports.

I've taken a Panasonic Gh2 with me to a few football games I was covering just to try it out, and its rather good for CDAF, but failed miserably for shooting action, just couldn't remotely keep up.

You would have to try X10 for yourself in the field.
Given its quite a bit smaller sensor than GH2, X10 cdaf will be faster.


I know how well X10 was focusing because i had quite a few duds before i realised i should be using face detect.

X10s focus integrity (how well it focuses) was impressive, accuracy of clothing coolur, skin tones. wb in difficult mall lighting was impressive.
