Playing with the little Fuji X10
I had the chance to play with a Fuji X10, the small, single lens camera that really kicked off the Fuji revolution. The X10 was followed closely by the successful release of an entire line of X Series cameras including the X100, X-1 Pro, XE-1 and now the new X100s and X20.... Whew, that was a mouthful. One thing is for sure, Fuji has found a niche that is built around nicely retro styled cameras, outstanding optics, and very good image quality. No camera in their line has caused more of a shakeup than the X100 and X100s, but that story is for another day.
The X10/X20 interests me as a camera that you could carry with you all the time with its small body, solid build and wide to tele zoom. The question I am asking myself is does this little camera scratch the itch of a small do it all portable camera. I will write up my complete thoughts over the next couple of days after looking at more images, but in the meantime here are a couple of images, JPegs with only slight processing. These images represent the types of captures I have increasingly been getting with my cell phone, simply because i don't have a really small camera with me at all times.
The B&W is straight out of the camera using the B&W film mode.
