Excerpt: its a beautiful , well build camera .. its a real joy to use it... but.... although its a great performer at close ups and mid-distance themes, it cant give crisp clear images of far objects.. I tried using alll the menu combinations to achieve sharp landscape pictures but the camera refuses to give the desired sharpness,, so dissapointing,, ,, enhancing the sharpness by an editing program on PC, its the only way to have nice results.
Fujifilm X20 12 MP Digital Camera with 2.8-Inch LCD (Silver)
3 June 2014
Summary: I love the fuji x20. I usually shoot with a Canon 5D mk 3, but wanted a camera to take snapshots of my family with on a recent trip out of the country when I didn't want to lug heavy and expensive gear with me. I was surprised at how great the images from the camera looked, especially since it is a point and shoot. It has great color rendition, dynamic range and really nice bokeh when you open up the aperture.
It all started with a search for a fast F1.8/F2 lens in a small body

Summary: I originally owned many canon/nikon/pentax DSLR . the latest with me is D5100 which i like. i bought a 35mm F1.8 lens and was amazed at the quality it gives out. i was so much obsessed with the lens that i stopped carrying by 18-20mm nikon lens. so i started to look if i can get these Focal lenths in more compact body for vacation type of trips. I looked at canonn G16 ,nikon & sony RX100. settled for Fujifilm somehow (my first fuji) & I was very skeptical of buying this.
Summary: This little guy is great! This is perfect for travel or for any casual shooting. The retro styling and weight of the camera adds a lot of value to it. The manual controls are nice and gives the camera a lot of flexibility. The lens on it is great and provides a wide range (28-112mm equivlent). With a apearture of 2.0-2.8, this is wonderful in low light situations and to get shots with decent bokeh. I love that there is a viewfinder with a settings overlay.
Summary: We've gone through a lot of cameras over the years, we are not professionals but we are fussy, and this lovely camera is probably the best we've bought, for sharp, well focused, clear, versatile pictures. Highly recommended if its in your price bracket.
Summary: The enthusiast compact sector has undergone a distinct revival in recent years, with every major manufacturer now producing a model or two that offers full manual control and Raw recording, aimed as a second camera for enthusiasts who usually carry an SLR. In general these have split into two camps - small, slimline 'shirt pocket' cameras designed for portability, and larger models with more external controls, flash hot shoes, and large aperture zoom lenses.
