Ahh. I'm still trying to decide on a camera too.
I very much enjoy my Fuji x10.
I don't think that helps a lot of people... What do you like? What don't you like?
- Quality of pictures
Excellent shutter speed.
Tons of manual controls that it almost feels like a DSLR.
Clarity of night shots on automatic.
Compact - great for street shooting.
Optical Viewfinder - I'm old school and hate framing shots on LCD screens.
Stylish camera body - I've had more than one professional photog ask if it was a Leica.
Battery life is pitiful.
On/off switch is twisting the lens. (some like it, I prefer a simple switch near the shutter button).
I like mine as well.
I really enjoy my Fuji X100, but I'm not sure I'd call it "point and shoot"
this is *exactly* the X100. i mean that it has the pros, and none of the cons. for battery i always carry a spare so ...
I have reviews of the X100 and the OMD on my blog, here:
It is too big to be a point and shoot -- a two thirds -- but the Sony RX1 looks very interesting
would be great camera if not for lack of VF...which they should have put in place of that ridiculously needless flash
and the add-on VF in addition to being ridiculously overpriced , is bulky
Anyone tried the Sony RX100?
I am considering this one as well, wondering if anyone can provide any input?
I just left Best Buy with the RX100, and looking forward to seeing it in action. I am by no means an advanced photographer by any stretch of the imagination, and my Olympus PEN EPL2 has been more than enough camera for me, but I have really wanted something more compact. Am hoping this camera is as good as the reviews it is getting. Foo, have you used yours much yet?
My S100 got the dreaded 'non-retracting lens' error and is in for repair. I've been using the RX100 for a few days now and most of my recent shots on my tumblr were taking using that camera on either the Auto, Auto+ or Program setting (with the high contrast monochromatic setting). So far so good - I'm looking forward to getting to know this one better.
I took my RX100 with me to Rome and Florence last week. First experience with it. Couldn't be happier. This camera performed admirably in very low light conditions. If I can ever get my issues worked out with Imageshack I might post some shots if anyone is interested.
