agreed it's very capable albeit with some irritating quirks. I was shooting one night at an event with poor lighting and for the most part the pics came out great (using EXR mode only) but the focusing point occasionally switched with out any notice. I know it'll catch the most opportune thing like faces and such but with some quick movements it caught whatever it wanted...

I still love it though


It's fun, extremely lovable and can turn out great shots but I wouldn't rely on it for work purposes. When I need to get that shot I rely on my DSLRs. That doesn't mean I won't take it along to a shoot and where possible grab a couple of shots out of interest. Perhaps I should be more trusting :lol:

I picked up an x10 today on a whim.... do any of you guys know if there is a way to prevent the LCD from turning on when adjusting aperture in Av? I prefer to shoot with the rear screen off, and it's very annoying to see it illuminate when all I'm doing is changing aperture. I'm on 1.03, FWIW.

How are you going to know what appature changes you are making without looking at the screen?

By feel? They're in half-stop detents -- not exactly a foreign concept for anyone who's used all-manual cameras most of their lives.

Hmm that would be me then... But im still not convinved you can judge with any acuracy the stops by feel on the x10.

Im going to try that later on and see if i can.

Ok i ,ve just tried it i can see it would be possible but without the screen you have no point of reference between shots as to what the f stop was left at.

If i figure out how to turn off the screen ill let you know

If in doubt I can manually turn on the display to check, but it's bothersome that instead of the quick setting display with the default black background, you get the sensor image display instead.

Good for you but I'm just not as trusting of it personally. I know it can deliver good quality images but for that shot that I have to get, I prefer to use my DSLR. Additionally I use a Mac and the X10's RAW files are not as yet readable on a Mac. The firmware update says that OS10.7 should read the files but it doesn't. Thus for my paid work I am only going to use my X10 when for some extraordinary reason I don't use of have my DSLRs. I find not having access to those RAW files somewhat limiting.

I had one for a while, then remembered that was just a lowly point and shoot so I sold it. Just re-acquired one, and I quickly realized how much I missed it. Great camera.

I've had mine since early December 2011 and I still love it. I hardly ever use any of my other cameras anymore. Although the other day I dropped my lens cap into Bellingham Bay while taking a picture. :rolleyes: Replacement's on the way, though.

Okay, the new firmware update includes some pretty fun new features. I'm really enjoying the tilt/shift simulation.
