look at it this way, the bloob is not noticable at iso 300. even 300 iso is better than hs20 or hs30 iso 100 for that matter. In fact, I would choose auto iso 400 or auto iso 800 for taking pictures as the bloobs don't appear

Not my experience at all.
My own workaround is to use ISO 400 auto in P Mode but those sharp edges can appear at any ISO.
Not being able to use the better image quality of 100 ISO in strong sunlight rather defeats the normal aim of maximizing IQ.

Finally an acknowledgement of the problem by Fuji.
Fuji have agreed to replace all sensors ( provided owners contact them ) when new sensors become available around May.

nippa- are we to assume then,that Fuji have tested this "replacement" sensor,when fitted to the X10- curing all ill's...?

Great to see Steve's review of the X10.

I now have the new sensor fitted and I am delighted to report that Orbs have - to all intents and purposes - GONE!

Glad I had the sensor replaced and not a new camera ; at least I know what I've now got and verified by testing at ISO100/f2.0 over and over again.

Firmware remains 1.3

G'day LF + all

To complement your OP- here's an image full of specular highlights ... taken with the X-s1

See any 'difference' with the "orbs" ?

This is very good news for all X-series fans !!!
I'm glad to hear that Fuji has done the right thing for all customers of the faulty cameras they have sold already !

I like your Beachgoer shot. It doesn't look as bad as my old X10 but that's the kind of thing that would have shown the unique Fuji Orbing.
I presume that Fuji will change the X-S1 sensor free of charge too.

Hmmm.. this thread has been surprisingly dead since I last visited! I've been off the forum for a while, and not doing anything with the X-10... Finally decided I needed to get off my duff and send the camera back to Fuji/New Jersey for sensor replacement. This I did 2 weeks ago- and yesterday received a package- containing a new X-10. Sure fast enough turn-around time. Anxious to get out and try it out again- battery's on the charger as I write this.
