I've been shooting since the age of 11 and now 40 years later still love what I do! Â I'm able to enjoy my work and still continue to shoot and be involved with photography.
As the President of Creve Coeur Camera I see hundreds of manufacturer's cameras yearly. Â Most compact cameras are just OK and don't really get me excited. Â Annually, the manufactures even send me a few just because. Â Now today with the Micro 4/3rds and the APS size chips I'm seeing some better results.
Last year I played with one of the Olympus Pen cameras and enjoyed it. Â But as usual it was a little bigger than what I want (as a travel camera) and I had to carry 2 lenses.
So last week I was viewing the used case at our Creve Coeur location and I spotted a Fuji X10. Â It looked almost new. Â So I quickly snatched it up and started playing with it. Â Immediately I was impressed!
I shot a few images inside the house with the flash and some without. They looked nice on the cameras screen...but when I looked on the computer....I got really impressed! Â IncrediblyÂ sharp and balanced.
Then on Saturday I took it to the transportationÂ museum and the images got even better.
Here are some of the specs and then my 10 reasons to consider this camera:
