Excerpt: I had it for a short while las t year at some point where I was hesitating on a new camera. I ended up trading it for the Lumix GX1 that I traded for the X100... I know this is a strange process of choosing a camera.
Summary: Revision to review: After several months of use, I find I cannot convert them with Adobe software and get results as sharp as the JPEGs that the camera produces. That makes no sense since the camera's JPEGS have to come from the same RAW file. But something is definitely screwy.
Summary: In Brief: Good Point Picture Quality Great Colours more natural than NEX5N Features Great especially Panorama and also you can shoot directly two pictures one with flash the other not which is very good and important feature Superb easy control buttons Bokeh not so great but still acceptable due to...
Summary: There are many comprehensive reviews already available. These are some of the shortcomings most don't mention. The X10 is like how most cars twenty years ago had confusing or downright bad controls for the radio, heating and air conditioning.
Summary: I was truly excited about this camera. Everything about the X10 from ergonomics to specs sounded like someone had finally made a camera just for me. Taking it out of the box I was immediately impressed with the heft and solid feel. Then I turn it on and things went down hill from there.
Summary: first, a bit of background so you understand where this review is coming from: i am used to shooting with very responsive equipment and lenses. i'm also used to carrying around this very responsive and, generally, rather bulky equipment.
Summary: A quick personal background. I've been shooting for nearly 25 years and consider myself an "enthusiast." I'm primarily a Nikon user and my experience is nearly all of the F-series SLR's and D-series DSLR's from 1985 onwards.
Summary: The Fujifilm X10 is an interesting camera. It has excellent image quality considering its sensor size. A very nice feature set. Is well made. Has a decent optical viewfinder. A nice LCD on back. The best Auto mode I have ever seen on a camera. However, with all that is great about this camera.
Summary: I would have given it four stars, but the X20 is out now and it is significantly better. I wouldn't recommend the X10 any more UNLESS the price you get it for makes it worthwhile - in which case it would be an excellent entry into the world of the high-quality compact for normal camera money.
