Are these real X10 samples !?

They look fantastic, and i believe they are from the X10 indeed. The DoF looks about what a relatively large compact sensor at close-focus and a long focal length at F2.8 in ideal lighting would produce. Just a tad better than the S95/XZ1/LX5. Exactly the results i was hoping for when it was announced.

Google translate isn't too clear, but one things for sure that it would be a pre-production sample.

The Filename says DSCF0208.jpg. Does fuji usually use that naming ?

More samples from Antwerp.

These are real samples for certain, because it's in the EXIF !

Re: Are these real X10 samples !?

The Fuji Thailand forum photos are real. Many of them were taken with X10 prototypes by Fuji employees. Others, especially the 100% crops, were made from photos they found on websites in Europe and Japan as well as in Thailand.

These photos were taken during a Fuji Poland contest where people were able to use X10s as part of the Warsaw introduction of Fuji's X camera series. The girls are models. Their X decorations are what people were supposed to find and shoot. One contest winner was supposed to win an X10, and another would win an X100:

This is another recent batch of X10 photos from a Nikon fansite in Poland. Even the bad Google translation of the comments makes it clear that the guy was very impressed with the X10, but he didn't have enough time with the camera to learn or try a lot of its features:

Yes, DSCF = digital still camera Fuji.

With bracketing functions, this is replaced by S001 etc.

X10 photo session

Here's a link to a FB gallery made with X10.

It's a pity they've chosen FB because you can't tell much about the IQ.

Here's the making of -- the X10 sure looks really nice:

Re: X10 photo session

Forget IQ, I love the skin tone that this camera produces. Very impressed.

Re: X10 photo session

Thanks to you and Marin for the Facebook links. I hadn't seen any of Heliasz's X10 photos. I agree it's odd that he made so little use of the OVF. Too busy watching the histogram, maybe?

The Facebook images are low-res with no EXIF data, so you can't tell who and what shot the shooter in the "Making of" album. Gorgeous models and locations, though. The guy knows what he's doing.

Re: X10 photo session

I don't care about the pixel level. If the X10 can produce images that look as good as those look on Facebook, I'm sold.

One thing I do notice is that the photographer doesn't seem to happy with the viewfinder. Notice that he's trying to use it in the first couple shots, and then is using the LCD for all the rest.

Viewfinder use

I noticed that, too, but it may be that he wants to be critically sure of the focus point and framing, as well as watching the histogram. Many high-end fashion shooters use medium format cameras with top-down viewfinders, not unlike a screen, and this method is fine when you are working in controlled conditions as he was. Hopefully, though, the viewfinder is good enough for street photography where framing by screen is inconvenient at best.

Happy to share what I know. I learned a lot of it here. — Michael:.

The screen is 100% and the light, where it is being used, is conducive to using it.
I like the images.

Re: X10 photo session

Heliasz's notes on his "Closer" album say he didn't give the X10 an easy task because his shots were all hand held using available light only. As we saw in his "Making of" album, "hand held" means "arm's length" in most of his photos.

His models had an easier time of it. They had hairdressers and makeup artists on the shoot.

Re: X10 photo session

Nice shots just wonder how much PP went into this shots. I still want to see real live shots which give me the wow factor. I always love the colour output of Fuji but the greens and sometimes the reds look mushy when looked at closer.
Never less I still have high hopes for this camera.
