That's quite an ORB there at the bottom!

Sorry. Couldn't resist. I wanted to say it before someone else did.

^^ What Simon said. I'm really looking forward to seeing what the S-x1 can do and whether or not this whole 'white orb' thing is tempest in a teapot, which I suspect it is.

If your pic is any indication, the S-x1 should be worth the wait (it's not in the stores here yet). The detail in that shot is DSLR-like, very impressive indeed. I can't wait to read your impressions of what seems like one of the best bridge cameras ever made. Don't keep us waiting too long!

Thanks Guys for the interest,
At the moment its all good,it's more or less the HS20 but much better.( things like ISO 100 in burst mode and continuous shooting, faster write speed,able to use the large size file, more ISO choices in manual lots more I can't think of)
I'm still getting to grips with it (most of the buttons are in different places) and it's heavier (the lens ) so I'm still finding out new things about it.
I'm very happy with it,it's just what I expected and more.
I posted a couple of pics (could only upload one keep upload keeps failing) so you can see the IQ you can also see the full size pics and a lot more on my flickr page.

Hello tonysturn,

When I look at the photo's you made with the HS20 I think: wow, beautiful, marvelous Fuji colour and lots of detail.
I'm sorry to say that the X-S1 doesn't look as good with far less detail.
I prefer the Toshiba sensor in the HS20 and I hope in the HS30 too.
I even like the noise of the HS20. It is nice grainy noise like old fashioned film.

Hi Guus,
I'm surprised you think that,Maybe I've not got the settings quite right yet. How about this one.
