Summary: Great camera, both in auto and in manual modes. Great lens and handy controls. Great substitute for a DSLR for everyday use. I did buy it because I want to be able to shoot without attracting attention.
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.
Summary: It is a good camera. However, it sometimes gave me lens control error. In addition, (I am not sure how to describe this) since the first time it gave me a "lens control error" message. The lens "Shake" while I was trying to focus. Imagine that there are two objects (A and B) in front of you and you are trying to focus on A. So you try to put object A in the middle of your display. However, in a sudden, the image in your display just shifts from object A to object B.
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.
Summary: This camera takes pretty great photos and allows for many of the manual settings a bigger, more complicated DSLR but it's lightweight and easy to use. I also love the retro look and I've never had a camera where the lens cap never falls off. This last thing is a minor detail but I really appreciate it. My only complaint is that it's impossible to take night sky photos because there's no bulb mode. This feels like an obvious miss.
