Re: +1 - How'd you do this?

I walked out into the back garden, stuck one camera on a tripod, took a couple of shots, swapped cameras, repeated. Went back inside, uploaded files, realised I'd done it wrong, went back outside, tried again....and again until I actually managed to get the settings right for all the cameras.

Didn't take too long.

Looking at the files, I'm pretty confident that in 6MP mode + EXR DR400 at base iso, there is so little difference between the X10 and the D100/S5 pro that I wouldn't hesitate to use the X10 instead of one of the older DSLRs,

And because the older DLRs are more than good enough for prints up to 12-13 inches wide to satisfy any pixel peeper that means as I won't need bigger prints that this, I can use the X10 with confidence and not feel I wish i have my XE1 or K5 with me.

Things might be different at larger print sizes or higher ISOs but I haven't tested those.

I might go out and test the X10's 6MP mode vs 12MP just to see for myself whether there is a significant difference...
