A few months ago I accidentally dropped my X10. It took a beating on the pavement, but fortunately the only apparent damage was to the small pin that holds the battery in plays. Testimony that it is a very well build camera. Still, I was nervous that some of the inner parts may have been damaged too.
Some times a DSLR plus extras is simply to heavy to carry along. Consequently, I’ve been on the lookout for a camera to take along, when portabily is of primary concern. Finally I decided on the Fujifilm X10. Is has good image quality for a compact camera, a viewfinder, good controls – including an ingenious manual zoom ring. And I like the retro-design 😉
