    Re: Fun with the Fuji X10

    It is a very good camera.
    Only issue are, as Jim mentioned above these white orbs.
    I sold mine for the exact same reason.

    Fuji was talking about an updated sensor recently, so I'd encourage you to wait, as there was no info on replacing it on the cameras sold and produced AFAIK.

    I purchased one last week, to go with my (almost 1 year-old) x100. I find it to be an absolutely superb compact. No, IQ is not as good the x100, but it IS very good for a small-sensor compact... and I say that, not to "damn with faint praise", but simply to be realistic about expectations. The lens is very good, and covers a very nice range, especially if your shooting style involves mainly rangefinder-type focal lengths. For me, the camera is just a joy to use.

    As for white orbs - from what I've seen, at least- the problem isn't too bad; especially when one considers the rest of the camera's capabilities, in such a tiny package. I would suggest that perhaps a compact isn't necessarily the best tool for low-light/long-exposure work, and the x10 would be better put to other uses - playing to its strengths. Anyway, I understand that Fuji (in the UK, at least) have stated that they will replace "white-orb" sensors when the re-designed ones are available (end of May has been quoted).

    As with any camera purchase, try handling the x10 if possible, and if it suits you, then I'd say go for it...!

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X10

    Just picked this up to carry around in my briefcase. I like it! Bit quirky, but, great fun, and there are no lenses to buy. I'm working my way through this thread. Images are excellent.

    Here's a few from today.









    Cheers, Matt

    Any updates on the new sensor for the X10?

    Yes, they are available now... if you're in the UK, contact Fuji at [email protected] (Note... that does read "x100", rather than "x10"). They are sending me the postage-paid packaging, so mine will be going in for replacement fairly soon.

    Early reports that I've read so far suggest that the new sensor deals very effectively with the orb problem, although there's also an - as yet - unconfirmed rumour of a slight increase in noise. However, I wouldn't be surprised if that turns out to be something of a nit-picking exercise by pixel-peepers, who then overstate their case over the web... we'll see.

    Hope that this helps...

    Fun with the X10. Conversion from colour worked better for me than the B&W jpegs - a lot different from the X100 sensor.

    The eggs are rotten anyway so I had a go with the Fuji X10 before taking it down (after doing it with medium format and 4x5).
    Here's the setup with the HB.

    Nice work! I've really enjoyed the x100 still-life work that you've posted here recently. In fact, I enjoyed it so much that I tried to do some of this, and I tried (and failed) to emulate the lighting and atmosphere in your shots.

    It's good to see that the x10 can also do a good job at this... in the hands of someone who knows how to do still-life properly!

    Thanks also for showing the set-up - it looks simple, but it certainly does the job.

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X10

    This is a shot I took of the old Swift Meat Packing Plant in Fort Worth when I had my Fuji X10. I have since returned that camera due to the orb issue but have kept all the shots I took with it.

    I recently bought Lightroom 4 and have been re-visiting some of the photos I have taken with various cameras using LR4 for the post-work. This seemed like a good one to play with in Lightroom with the B&W development. The day I shot this it was quite overcast and this shot seemed to beg to be B&W.

    The X10 continues to be a great little performer for me! Especially in super-macro mode:

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X10

    Like others I continue to enjoy my X10 and find that I like my interior natural light photos better than ones taken outdooors. The colors of the indoor shots seem richer. Do any of you talented X10 owners care to share any settings for the camera for general well lit outdoor landscape type of shots?

    TIA

    I habitually set the EC dial at -2/3. That seems to help loads, especially outside.

    Very nice, Don - it may have been only your first shoot with the x10, but it looks as though you're straight into it!
    I find that I use it a lot for B&W. What camera settings and/or PP did you use (if you're not averse to revealing)? I like the tones that you've achieved here. Are these from Raw or OOC?
    Apologies for all the questions - I'm just interested, because I like the results.

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X10

    Tim,
    Jpeg is the only solution for this camera. It bugs me that the raw files don't do we'll in LR4.
    The camera is set to Provia. Med size 4:3.
    I make flat files meaning just the jpeg with no adjustments in camera.
    In LR4 I use my presets to make the image I want. It's easy due to having neutral files.

    This of course rules out seeing a B&W screen. I have to see a color one... The Horror!

    The camera is very nice and I'm finding my way with it.
    This is the first zoomie camera in over 45 years that I might actually keep.

    Don,
    Thanks - that's interesting... I've had the x10 for several months - during which time I've been the Raw output (based on previous experience with various cameras) - and I've just recently started shooting only Jpegs on the x10. The Jpegs are comparatively so good that it hardly seems worth the extra storage space to shoot Raw! They are also reasonably forgiving, should any PP work be needed. I just wish that I'd bothered to look more closely at the Jpeg performance of the x10, before now.

    This of course rules out seeing a B&W screen. I have to see a color one... The Horror!
    I sympathise entirely!

    Tim,
    How did you process the raw files? Sillypix of course is out. I tried desperately with Lightroom to no avail. There's too many artifacts and what not going on.
    I still don't like being forced to do jpeg but there exist no other way.


    The camera is a real working machine that changes configuration on the go otherwise, I wouldn't waste my time with it. I keep it on the shelf next to my White GRD4 in hopes they will have camera sex and make the perfect camera but then the Grd4 already is.

    I'd better keep all my photo stuff separate then, or there could be a severe case of over-population in our house.

    Regarding Raw processing, I tried to give Silkypix a fair trial, but ultimately I gave up on various grounds... output can be fairly good (but variable), however it is painful to use. Other than that, I think that I've tried many converters (not LR, however), and I've not been "wowed" by any of them for x10 Raw files.

    So... this is what led me to try re-visiting Jpegs, and I reckon that I might stay with this approach for the time being, and see how it works out.

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X10

    I'm using M file size with 400 Dynamic range. It seems to be working fine. I tried the L file size and I guess I'm too old to see a difference. So I have surrendered to M jpeg.

    If you want to have a good time and get a real headache...... test the DOF scale. I did this with the X100 and many thought I was crazy. That's ok because I live in a crazy world. The X10 has an enormous DOF even wide open. Do not trust the scale except the actual focus distance. That's fairly accurate, enough to work with.
    Check out DOF master and you'll see with testing that they of course are right.

    Thanks, Don! I'm especially proud of the outdoor shot, as I had to go into Ninja mode and shoot at 1/6 of a second. </brag>

    I'm always amazed at the incredibly high quality of the files from the X10 and how workable they are. I think I've done some of my best work with it, even.

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X10

    Strictly JPEG once it's out of the camera, as Aperture doesn't support the RAW format files. For B&W, I'll convert the JPEGs in Silver Efex Pro, or sometimes do it in-camera. But take note- I also will use the camera's RAW button to tweak photos that I like in-camera.

    It's all on a picture-by-picture basis for me.

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X10

    Thanks Maggie. I do Med Fine DR400 and get a great jpeg.
    Then to LR4 with my presets or SEP2.
    I'd like to do raw but it's not even close to the jpeg.

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X10

    Well, I'm trying L fine jpeg today. I stopped raw because in LR4, it's terrible. After all this time since the camera has been out.... I give up on raw ever working in LR.

    If I didn't like the camera so much....well...it wouldn't be a pretty picture.

    There is still no AP RAW support after over a year that this camera is on the market, similar for other Fuji cameras. This is really a bad sign.

    I'm just grateful AP supports the X100's RAW files, because Aperure + X100 RAW is incredible. Especially with SEFXP2.

    Wait for the X20. It's the same price before the price drop and has improved the camera in many areas except RAW processing....

    I can hardly wait to see files from the X20. I bet they'll be fantastic.

    X10 - B&W+yellow, all the other settings plain vanilla. It fits better than polaroid for setting up large format TMax/HC110. Just one umbrella pointed up (to feather the nearside) and across the subject (to feather the background).

    One old lens (Rodenstock-Apo 240mm) in front of the Fuji-X10 lens. Some coffee beans on the iPad screen.

    Fuji X10 jpeg straight out of the can. Shot today setting up for 4x5.
    Sorry about the missing shots above, I reorganised my Picasaweb albums and they no longer register.
