It just hasn't reached you yet

Nice shots. Your fall colors are just starting? Man, the leaves have already fallen off most the trees here. And I'll trade you ten rainy days for one of those nice ones in your shots.

Played with the X10 some more in the store last night. I'm thinking as far as size and ease of use go it is as close as they are ever likely to get to issuing a digital replacement for the wonderful Konica C35 compact rangefinder.

Never having been a film shooter, I had to look that up Mike. I think you may be right...it looks very similar and is maybe a similar size...or is the x10 smaller?

Just being realistic....at least for me...a camera needs to feel good in my hands and also look good for me to fully enjoy it.......I mean look like it is a camera, not some big bulky plastic box. That may label me as superficial....but I think most of us are a little slanted that way...about a lot of things!
The x10 certainly fills the order for good looks and comfort in my hands, and my only regret is that I am not a good enough shooter to take full advantage of its potential, because I do believe it is a lot more capable than I am. Maybe I will get better...maybe not, but regardless, it is a heck of a lot of fun to use!

Health food...with Funyuns as a back-up just in case you get too healthy! Love the Fuji colors!

Agreed; that or the Rollei 35. Tempted, very tempted; especially since the stores now are extending product returns on purchases now for two weeks past Christmas... plenty of time to play & test.

Here's a Brazilian website's review of the X10.

Didn't bother translating it but it's got some really good closeup pics of the hardware for those interested.

Deep fried livers and cold beer - comfort food to me!

Nothing special, but due to the lack of daylight, just snapping anything gets in in the view at home... Food that is ("supermacro mode")

And the winter boredom continues... Just trying to get familiar and get use to such wide angle lens (since it's the only way to get very close to the subjects)

Just stuck the x10 out the window as I passed by and shot this one as I drove by on a gloomy afternoon...

Nice shots Dan! It is indeed a very fun little camera. I'm still exploring all the features, and will be for some time. I have shot a few Raw shots, but I can't seem to beat the Jpegs turned out by the x10....Fuji really nailed the processing in this little camera.

Thanks. I'm use to a 50mm being a really wide lens with my other cameras. This 23mm is like a piece of cake to get deep DOF. And shallow DOF takes some close focusing. I really don't have much to say about the camera that hasn't all ready been said in reviews of it.
