Excerpt: Went to see The Eagles the other night, no cameras allowed. I had the XZ-10 (a recent purchase at $199.00), in my shirt pocket. I started in a non-assigned seat, and got warned about taking pictures in the first shot. Later had to move to another seat where all the remaining shots were taken. They were shot with the camera discreetly placed on my left knee, with my left hand covering the lcd and left index finger working the shutter.
Pros: This small camera provides good picture quality, easy to use controls, a touch screen and works with Linux (OpenSuSE 12.1) no drivers needed. Several modes provide for interesting shooting options and customization. The lens is good, photo taking responsive and quick, and the autofocus reasonably intelligent.
Cons: My biggest complaint is the lack of a spot for my left thumb on the back of the camera. Though I've found gripping the control knob around the lens works reasonably well. There is some blurring of the pictures at higher ISO settings. This hasn't been a big problem, however, as I mostly shoot at the lower end of the range. The included wrist strap is a bit short, but this is easily remedied.
