From Fuji's spin dpt: The X10 features a newly developed manual 4x optical zoom lens utilizing Fujinon optical technology. With superb F2.0-2.8 brightness and a 4x optical zoom ranging from 28mm wide angle to 112mm telephoto, the lens not only delivers high resolution optical performance across the entire range, but is also a triumph of engineering due to its compact size.

Fujifilm's new retro camera combines the look and feel of the X100 with a fixed 4x Zoom (28-112mm) lens that includes optical image stabilization and a new 12 megapixel EXR Cmos sensor at a really convinient size. 

Nikon P7700 passes the DXO Mark bench with honors: The best compact camera Nikon has made to date, it seems to have been designed around a wish-list of all the things that a photographer or a serious amateur would want on an everyday camera.

"Best Nikon camera" means of course that-sensor wise, it is still a fair bit behind Fuji's X10, but ahead of Canon's Powershot G15. Ben Boswell from DXO Labs writes the conclusion:

"Nikon divides its cameras into a number of different categories: DSLR, Nikon 1 (their compact system cameras) and Coolpix, its compact range. Coolpix is further divided: All Weather, Life, Style and Performance. The Coolpix P7700 is at the top of the Performance division, which is in turn the top of the Coolpix Division. That is to say that this is, for Nikon, the best compact they make. This is a camera that has been designed around a wish-list of all the things that a photographer or a serious amateur would want on an everyday camera and Nikon have delivered something really good." . . . read more

Sony RX100 vs Fujifilm X10 vs Canon S110 vs Canon G15 mega shootout by Ron Martin: He prefers the Fuji X10 for most situations, and his wife agrees.

This is the follow-up to Ron's RX100 review from a week ago:

"I like the RX100 and feel like it makes great images. If you do a comparison of the RAW images you’ll quickly find that it has great RAW images that are hampered by fairly poor in-camera processing compared to the other cameras I’ve tested. At low ISO’s it’s not an issue and they are quite good, but as the ISO’s climb the poor in-camera noise reduction really hurts. As a result, my “always keep your raw images” applies more for this camera than any of the others I’ve tested.

DP Review Enthusiast Zoom Compact Cameras roundup: Canon PowerShot G15 vs Canon PowerShot S110 vs Fujfilm X10 vs Fujifilm XF1 vs Nikon Coolpix P7700 vs Olympus XZ-2 vs Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7 vs Samsung EX2F vs Sony RX100

"If you're looking for a balance of size, image quality (even in low light) and direct control, we'd recommend taking a long hard look at the Sony Cyber-shot RX100, the Olympus Stylus XZ-2 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7. The Sony RX100's 20MP sensor gives it an advantage when it comes to resolution and the size of the sensor keeps it competitive in low light. There are some compromises to be made in terms of size and lens range but these models offer a compelling degree of versatility, especially if this will be your only camera. . . . read more

Fujifilm X10 white orbs and firmware fix investigated by DPReview

Short answer: No. And by the look of things, this issue will remain un-fixable by a firmware update. So, where's the line for the class action lawsuit?  For they more cool-headed owners of the X10, shooting in EXR mode and raising iso seems to help quite a bit.:

 

"We have been unable to observe a meaningful improvement in either studio or real world testing which strongly reinforces our suspicion that the problem is hardware-related, and cannot be solved by an adjustment to the camera's firmware. The issue is . . . read more

Fujifilm X10 review at Photographic Central

Go past the white disks/orbs bug, and you'll be confronted with a really powerfull small camera:

 

"The lens is remarkable. A very usable and versatile 28-112mm lens that has a nice bright aperture f/2-2.8 across the zoom range. Macro is good although way too much distortion and shading are found on the wide end. . . . read more

Fujifilm X10 review at Digital Camera Resource Page

If it wasn't for the white disc/orbs bug, this would probably be the best fixed lens camera of 2011/2012. Unfortunately, Fujifilm was unable to fix this issue on the first try, and many X10 owners are growing impatient. Hopefully, this incident will serve as a good reminder to Fujifilm and other manufacturers to not rush things to the market before proper testing: . . . read more

The Fujifilm X10 and the White Discs of Doom at Digital Camera Resource Page

This is the kind of stuff that happens when you rush whatever your R&D departement has cooked up, to the market. Fujifilm is not alone with a blooper like this however, even Canon had an oopsie with the venerable 5D Mark II, but eventually they found a fix for it:

Fujifilm x10 review @ Reghardware

 

The X10 comes with an impressive, though non-interchangeable, 7.1- 28.4mm zoom lens equivalent in 35mm terms to a 28-112mm zoom. It’s impressively bright, with a maximum aperture of f2 in wide angle at f2.8 at the telephoto end. This is a versatile lens with a very close minimum 

Nikon J1 versus Fuji X10 by Ryan Brenizer

"Now, as a professional Nikon user, my initial gut reaction to the J1 was disappointment. I know from the X100 that mirrorless options can be helpful in even the most professional systems, and I was hoping for something that would change my working environment. The J1 isn’t designed . . . read more

Fujifilm x10 gets DXOmarked, still looks good!

For a camera, this is like getting a Bar Mitzvah :)

"The X10’s results are really good for its category. It achieves scores close to 1/2 stop better than the Fuji F600. Its Color depth (20.5) and dynamic range (11.3 Evs) remain in the same range as the best camera in this segment (Canon Powershot G12 or PowerShot S100). . . . read more

Fujifilm x10 review @ Neocamera

It shows a very good image quality, matching the best small sensor models and only lagging behind cameras with much larger sensors and more expensive price tags. Images show little noise, excellent metering, nice colors and . . . read more

Fujifilm X10 field review @ SeriousCompacts

"The ⅔” EXR 12MP CMOS sensor and the EXR processor in this machine work together brilliantly! A bit larger than sensors in other compacts (except for those like the Fujifilm X100, Sigma DP line and Leica X1 that feature APS-C sized sensors), but a fair amount smaller than m4/3 sensors, I am amazed at its ability to handle low light, high ISO situations. Part of that success comes from the processor’s ability to combine pixels, which can be used to either . . . read more

Fujifilm X10 review @ DigitalTrends

"The X-series from Fujifilm are fickle beasts. If you can tame them, work with them and not against them, you will take home stunning images. And these two devices arguably produce the best point-and-shoot photography (and this isn’t just when pitting them against pocket cams, but higher end cameras as well). However you simply cannot pick up the X10, start shooting, and expect to get everything you can out of the camera. . . . read more

Fujifilm X10 review by Ken Rockwell

"The Fuji X10 is a solid little jewel of precision. Its zoom control brilliantly eliminates the need for that stupid power switch! Real cameras don't have power switches.The X10 has real strap lugs, much better than most point-and-shoot cameras, so it's always around your neck ready to shoot.The biggest potential gotcha is protecting the lens. . . . read more

Fujifilm X10 review @ Cnet.uk

Fujifilm X10 review @ Cnet.com

FTA: "There are two ways to look at the Fujifilm FinePix X10. You can view it as a cynical attempt to capitalize on the fanboy frenzy of the X100 with a camera that looks a lot like it, but that lacks everything that made it desirable to the fans. . . . read more

Fujifilm X10 review @ Pocket-Lint

"The camera's ISO auto setting is limited to ISO 3200 maximum, but we’d be happy to use the results from any of these given sensitivities. It’s not often a compact camera can live up to those standards. ISO 4000-6400 is only available at 6-megapixels in size, while ISO 12,800 can only be . . . read more

Fujifilm X10 review @ TrustedReviews

Is this little beauty the Area 51 of cameras? Well, if it makes you see white disks: "And so to the one major chink in the X10’s otherwise impenetrable armour: the widely reported appearance of ugly white discs in place of specular highlights.
