I am anxious to see the X1.
My greatest disappointment with every digital camera I've owned is the pictures out of the camera are never good enough and I have to spend way too much time editing them in Photoshop or other tools.
I have thousands of digital pictures that are stuffed away on CDs or hard drives that no one will ever see because I don't have time to adjust them all. I have printed thousands of digital pictures as well and they are also in piles in a cabinet.
In my film days I never messed around in the darkroom. I took pictures, got them developed and printed. As long as I used a good camera, good film and a good lab I got great pictures back.
I am expecting the X1 to produce pictures that can be printed straight out of the camera without spending hours in Photoshop just to make them good enough.
The time savings there alone can make the X1 worth the dough.
I hope the X1 can deliver that one thing.
