  • Jeff, It is very interesting how many of the folks on this forum have a X10/20/30 + XS-1 or Panny FZ1000 combo.  It just seems to work.  For casual shooting the X30 is my go to.  For serious trips ...
  • I will second what Tom said.  I had to replace my X10 due to a hair on the sensor.  I was not planning to like the X30 so much, but I have been completely satisfied with the upgrade.  It is an ...
  • Doug, Welcome to the club.  The X-S1 is a great camera.  The extra weight is due to the magnesium frame.  Same as found in higher end DSLR's. No plastic.   The settings can be confusing right at ...
  • Enrico, I noticed you used HDR processing for these images.  Have you tried the in camera Pro Low Light setting of the X-S1?  It uses multiple combined images also for low noise, but without the ...
  • Yes, the X-30 has full in camera raw processing. Sorry for the miss post above.
  • Replied in X30 repair
    Should still be under warranty.  Contact Fuji USA on web and fill out form to mail in for service.  Haven't had to do that, but have heard service is fast and good.
  • Replied in edge sharpness
    AFAIK, the lens in the X30 (also in the X10 and X20 is widely acknowledged as having some of the best edge sharpness of any of the small compacts.  It definitely requires less software correction ...
  • It's interesting that no one suggests comparing pictures instead of specs.   There are extensive galleries available online for both cameras.  I suggest you look at them and see if at your stage ...
  • Ed, I don't pretend to understand Fuji marketing, but I have to agree with you, but disagree with everyone else who seems to think anything less than a 1 inch sensor compact is not worthy.  I think ...
  • Ron, Check out this thread and many others like it. https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/58358109 I have used Wasabe  batteries since I got my X-S1 and they work great.
  • Unlike the X30, the X-S1 does not have Wi-Fi.   However, there are wireless shutter releases on the market.  Whether they would work with Fuji, I don't know, but I seem to recall seeing some on ...
  • I have 3 plus charger for the X-S1 and 2 WT (Wasabi Trends) for my X30.  Never had any problems with any of them and they definitely last a little longer than the stock Fuji batteries.  You can ...
  • Looks neat.  Also available on Amazon US https://www.amazon.com/dp/B006VTQERM/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_S_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=37IW7RWDVM3A&coliid=I1GJU829AQ41R5 May have to try this one out.
  • Replied in X 30 Panic
    I use a Sharpie marking pen to mark all my batteries next to the orange plastic retainer piece so I can't insert them upside down or backwards.  This is especially helpful when your battery dies ...
  • KKJohn, If you used the lens of the X30 with the sensor of the A3 this is a crude idea of what your image would look like. Lens coverage too small for sensor size Too cover an APSC sensor you need ...
  • Looks like a keeper!  Both the dog and the camera ;-)
  • Dan, I think you need to interpret the 0 setting as a baseline image.  For example an image with "normal" sharpening, noise reduction, color saturation etc.   For an image with less sharpening or ...
  • I think the X-S1 was and is one of the best "superzooms" or bridge cameras ever made.  It is a very good combination of size, zoom reach, weather resistance, manual zoom, bigger than 1/2.3 inch ...
  • Another great set of images, John.  You truly show off the capabilities of this unique camera.  The combination of reach, weather resistance and compactness is hard to beat.
