It is not that positive !

This is an extraordinarily thorough review, well worth reading for the explanation of functions, if nothing else. The camera is what it is -- there is an old saying: "You can't make a silk purse out of a sow"s ear." Whether or not the reviewer could have gotten better results with more familiarity is a moot point, since the review was completed before the firmware update was issued. I would expect more updates in the future, as Fuji works to resolve any remaining issues. There have been enough excellent photos posted in this forum (and elsewhere) taken before the update, to prove that many of these "problems" experienced by inexperienced users disappear as the users become more adept with the camera, which can do some things that no other can. One of the things that sets humans apart from other animals is their capacity for learning and analytical thinking (reasoning). This is not a camera for the person that wants simple one-button perfection - it will certainly take time and study to master many of its features.

@penolta:
What you say is true. Also I too believe that Fuji will release more updates in the time to come. Even after the firmware update, there's no detail in foliage.

However, there's no doubt this is one camera that they have launched in a big hurry. It is evident that they have not done adequate testing.

Hey guys, I'm going to buy this cam, but I can't find a matching bag.
What bag do you use?

Nice pics in this forum!

None. If it's in the bag, it ain't taking pictures.

That's what I meant, too. If your camera is in a bag, it's not out taking pictures.

During transportation? It's got a lens cap. I put Zagg's Invisible Shield on the LCD. For me, that's all I need. An extra set of batteries, extra SD cards, and a lens pen all fit in my pocket or a fanny pack very nicely. Now, if you have a DSLR, you NEED a bag. Seriously, if you keep your camera in a bag, you may LOOK cool but you won't use your camera as much. I know. I went that route. It's just extra poof with a bridge camera. Get yourself a nice neoprene neckstrap. The one Fuji provides is my only BIG gripe about the whole HS-10 deal. It sucks pretty bad.

Maybe you're right.. I am in the habit of carrying a backpack all the time, and dumping a brand new HS10 (without any cover) in there with my other junk is not a pleasing thought.

So I guess I need to forget about carrying it in the backpack and hang it around my neck instead.
