Fujifilm X10 is definitely a camera that can be carried around in your bags for everyday use.

Below you can see some close-up views of the Fujifilm X10 taken by me to let you know how it basically looks:

I have also taken a short video (in 18 seconds) using the Fujifilm X10 to give you some ideas of how you can take a simple video without any difficulties:

Some rumours say Fujifilm may soon launch the X20 but I guess it is still a bit too early as recently Fujifilm has released a modified sensor to resolve the issue of white orb.  Details of the new and old sensors can be found on Digital Photography Review website. This addresses the issue and it looks like it is an improvement.  But how Fujifilm is yet to replace the sensor remains unknown. It would be nice if this issue can be simply done by a firmware update.

There are some cons, such as the Exposure Compensation dial is really not smooth enough to be turned back and forth by the thumb when you want to make a little adjustment before pressing the shutter.  The Mode dial is also quite tight.  Since it is so close to the shutter button, you have to turn it with care.  The battery com card holder chamber door at the bottom is a bit flimsy.  The autofocus is hunting for the target occasionally at close-ups.  However, all these can be effortlessly overcome if you get used to it and understand its shortcomings.

That said, after using the Fujifilm X10 for a couple of days, I am impressed by its image quality although I am only a common user and not in a position to technically compare it with other cameras of the same type.  But with the Fujifim X10 affordably priced and the functionality embedded, it is definitely one of my choices to travel light.
