  9. Hi Dan,
    These cameras are slowly hitting the shops in Asia. I was thinking of getting the Fujifilm X20. I did read many reviews but your’s touched upon real issues that concern me.
    Thanks for sharing. I am convinced that I need to get one as soon I can lay my hands on one.

  10. Hi Dan

    Excellent review. I have the X10 and have it set on its EXR mode most of the time. I’m looking at the X20 as an upgrade but I am aware that it doesn’t have the EXR mode. So I guess am asking what you think is its best setting for getting the good solid performance I’m enjoying from the EXR on the X10?



  11. Martin, I think that your best option with the X10 is to keep using EXR mode when you’re trying to get the most resolution out of a tricky exposure situation. True, the X20 doesn’t have EXR mode, but the new X-Trans sensor is designed with an entirely different architecture. It does produce noticeably sharper images. That said, the X10 is still a great camera!

  12. Dan : I read Your X10 Review and was very impressed ! Your love of Photography fills the Review ! I recently purchased an X10 , and will soon acquire an X20 based on Your Review ! R E Keay

  15. Dan,

    Great article on X20 RAW. I am a little disappointed with certain performance aspects of my X20 much as you describe (so that is encouraging!), but it is better than my Panasonic LX5 which it replaces. I find the X20 smudges or smears detail, particularly in the mid and far regions of landscape pictures. The NR function does not seem to produce much variation, but the the DR function is pretty aggressive and seems to be a clear culprit in smearing the reputation of good photos. Some blogs suggest DR should be left to ‘auto’; I think 100 will generally produce better results. What are your thoughts? What settings do you use for NR and DR?

  17. Dan, Great review. I have fun using the X20 while traveling. Love the ergonomics.
    Could i ask for your preference on custom settings (c1, c2) for black&white and colour shots?
