X10 amongst the dead...

...I had my first outing with my new X10 on Saturday. I went to my usual testing place, our local cemetery. The very fine detail on the weather worn stone, ivy leaves and branches give a small sensor a good workout. I know it's not a very scientific test (I don't do those) but it gives me a good feeling for how the camera is performing.

For my small carry around I've been using the Panasonic LX series from LX2 - LX5 which I've been very happy with. But the slightly larger sensor, OVF, old fashioned manual zoom and Fuji colours were too much to resist.

I know it's early days but my feeling is that the X10 is a step up from the LX, specially colour-wise.

I haven't fully got to grips with the HDR settings yet and am finding the threads here confusing, with lots of contradictory advice. So these are all large fine jpeg at 100 or 400ISO, Astia film, otherwise standard settings. PP Photoshop CS4.

The rest of X10 pics are numbers 26 - 38 in this gallery: http://mikepics.zenfolio.com/p472973021

Thanks for looking

Mike
