Back in October, I got the Nikon D7000 as a replacement for my ailing D80. It’s nothing short of astonishing. I haven’t really had the chance to properly break it in, but that’ll change next week, as I head to Hong Kong for the holidays.
DLSR’s are great, but they are a bit of a burden. Carrying around a DSLR on the daily can be difficult and the iPhone’s image quality still isn’t there yet. I’ve been lusting over Fujifilm’s new X10. It’s their latest high-end point and shoot and I think it’s a fantastic looking thing.
I love the resurgence in retro-styled camera bodies. It’s something Leica has always done, but it’s nice to see other brands doing the same.
The X10 has all the usual features: 12 megapixels, manual controls and 1080 HD video. Unfortunately the 28-112mm f/2-2.8 lens isn’t interchangeable. It’s a small price to pay, but really, how much is anyone going to spend on lenses for a compact point and shoot?
I have yet to play with an X10, but I’m sure I’ll come across on at one of Hong Kong’s million camera stores. Maybe I’ll come home with one?
