Summary: I love the retro look and well made, the camera has a few quirks in the way you take images. I can learn to work with it. At time i wish it had a little more zoom, but that is only 5% of the time. This camera was purchase to take vacation photos. Any really good scenes we would use our DSLR.
Excerpt: X20 gives as much as can be expected from a compact camera. Even more. I've seen complaints about the image detailing. What can we expect - a small sensor. Manage to solve the problem of noise levels found -2, and ISO - 100. Fortunately good optics allows it. This is an excellent camera for your money and it is not worth the quality, which gives the camera with APS - C sensor.
Pros: Small size, optical viewfinder, manual zoom, in camera RAW processing, "old-school" styling.
Cons: Not quite as solidly built as it would appear: I dropped it (on a carpet) and had to have it replaced because of a "lens control error". The thumb grip eventually fell off. Not quite small enough to carry in a pocket.
Summary: Great camera. I have had many camera's over the last 50+ years. Of course film camera's and for the last 10 years several digital camera's. This is be best ever! Fantastic build, looks and feels like a camera costing 3 time as much. Great control for an experienced photographer. Love the optical viewfinder, although I do fine myself using the LCD screen much of the time. In the end the value of any camera is in the results - how good are the photo's.
Summary: Professional Features of Fuji X20 I ordered a Fuji X20 to play around with. I have only used professional and prosumer cameras and an iPhone and this is my first point and shoot. Fuji combined a classic film based rangefinder and and a point and shoot and came up with some serious retro camera candy. A point and shoot is a camera that does not have removable lenses and is usually used for amateur photography.
Summary: I actually bought this for my daughter. Her other camera is a Canon Mark II 5D for professional photography. But she found this little guy to stick in her purse for when the moment strikes you (way smaller to carry around!). It has full capabilities her Mark II has. I played with it for a little while and it is really sweet (I am truly amateur). Now I want one.
Great cmaera, affordable and high quality. easy to use.

Summary: Great camera. Small, and light. So many features and effects. Great all around camera. We took over 900 photos for our wedding week. Our first one got stolen, make sure you are home for delivery!
Summary: Loved this camera. Color balance and exposure are right on. Easy to use if you use JEPG. Only problem is that you have to use their CD to enable raw and many new computers don't even have CD slots [ my Mac Book Pro ]. Am trying to check to see if it can be downloaded from the Net.
Summary: I bought this camera for my two upcoming overseas trips because I wanted a camera that produces near-SLR quality without the weight. The camera performs! I like that it can be used as a point-and-shoot and as a full manual camera. The lens is sharp from edge-to-edge and the RAW files retain amazing amount of details.
