Fuji X10 on it's last legs....

Unread postby bfitzgerald » Sat Apr 07, 2018 12:04 pm

Sad to say having problems powering on the camera it no longer works twisting the lens to power on. Only way to get it to work is to use the playback button (it has a feature to show images/videos when off with the button), with that and a half press to the shutter, which gets you power even if off. It would appear the mechanism/switch on the lens is faulty hence the issue.
Not ideal but for now a work around. It can still take images/videos using this method

With that in mind I'm open to suggestions for a replacement. I still feel the need for a premium compact, something more portable to carry around get shots and some video. X10 wasn't that small but not too big either. As Fuji abandoned the market for compacts I'm on the hunt for something to eventually take over from the Fuji. Can't complain I had a lot of use from the camera. What I'm looking for is decent low light (photo and video), doesn't have to be trouser pocket size either. Of course I'm aware of the RX series but have not used any of them, the latest one is too pricey for me but the previous ones are more affordable. Also on the table Panasonic maybe Canon though I've not been a fan of their cameras. Open to any suggestions or hands on experience good and bad.

Thanks :)

bfitzgerald I not sure if they do shipping to your location, but they have good quality used equipment and not very expensive.
I got some used lenses there and can not complain at all.

I found for compact size camera my cellphone has a very good camera, new model Samsung or Google pixel has even way better cameras.

Hi Valery outside Europe is a no no really customs charges/VAT. Not worth it unless you get a guaranteed cost cover (one stop digital did that used to buy lenses from them 100% legit company)
I have a decent phone takes good photos and video clips (lumia 950)...but I'm old school I just can't get my head around using them for anything other than occasional shots. I just get a bit more serious with real camera for some reason oh and the lack of focal range is a problem too (maybe not for those with dual cameras)
Contenders are RX series (not the V too pricey but below that) maybe the LX100 looks interesting similar size to the X10
