Default The 10 has arrived

A testshot I took in the Harbor of Scheveningen (The Hague, The Netherlands).
The camera meets my expectations.

Hello,

It was about 360 mm and ISO 200.
This one was shot at 720 mm and ISO 200.

How do you find the IS?
Save times for JPEG?
Speed of autofocus (especially at long zooms)?

Hello,

My first impression is that the camara's IS system is working very well but don't expect miracles. In the 720 mm range you must be very steady (or lucky) to get a tag sharp photo. Perhaps one can raise the ISO to a higher level (about 400 to 800). The camera can handle these values. Dynamic range looks good as well but I always lower EV on Fuji camera's minus 1/3. Colors are accurate I think. The camera handles JPEG quick enough (about one second to process them). RAW I don't know, I never use it. The tone was set on low and sharpness normal. I use USM in Paint Shop for sharpening. When you set the camera in the P position you can't go wrong. Prints on A4 look good.

Regards,

guus

Please comment on autofocus speed and battery life too.. Thanks!

Also: what card are you using to get the 1sec save time?

Hello,

I just own the 10 for one day, so there hasn't been much time to test the camera properly. I also own the S100 fs and the S200 EXR. I noticed the photo's from the 10 looks more smooth in a way, maybe caused by the CMOS sensor. Sharpening in Photo Shop gives a better result than the S100 fs and the S200 EXR did. The 10 focusses quickly, until now no misses, ofcourse first half- press the shutter and wait for the "bleeb".
Don't know about battery-life, but I've read on other forums battery-life is long.
I can say the 10 is the best bridgecamera Fuji made until now and is much more refined than an entry DSLR.

Regards,

guus

Hi Guus - I have never used the P mode on a camera before, can you elaborate a bit on your method for shooting in P mode. Thanks.
