Fuji X100 review at Dpreview.




On the last page of the review they have this list of what they call "bugs" Quite amazing really. I've decided to describe the X100 as "alternatively configured!!"
  • ISO and DR are set independently for each exposure mode, and for the Motion Panorama drive mode
  • When the ISO is set manually it overrides the DR setting, but in Auto ISO the DR setting takes priority
  • ISO 100 (L) and 12800 (H) are unavailable (greyed out) when shooting raw
  • ISO bracketing, film simulation bracketing and dynamic range bracketing drive modes will turn off raw file recording without warning (and aren't greyed-out when shooting raw)
  • When using AEL/AFL to autofocus with the camera set to MF, no focus confirmation is displayed (and equally, there's no warning when correct focus can't be attained)
  • In Manual exposure mode, Live Histogram always implies correct exposure, regardless of settings
  • In Manual exposure mode, camera will allow shooting at incompatible shutter speed / aperture combinations (e.g. 1/4000 sec F2)
  • Program shift only works if Auto ISO is disabled and flash mode is set to Suppressed.
  • Program shift counts rear dial or thumb lever commands beyond the point where the aperture is set to its largest or smallest (F2 or F16), and requires those commands to be reversed before it will stop down or open up again
  • Drive and macro mode settings are discarded on changing exposure mode, entering playback or auto power-off
  • OVF Power Save Mode disables live histogram, but leaves the box in which it's normally displayed blank in the viewfinder
  • Drive mode, macro and flash mode buttons behave differently from the white balance button, and differently again from the AE and AF buttons
  • AF point cycles from anywhere on the top row to the bottom right position by pressing the 'up' key, and from the bottom row to the top left by pressing 'down'
  • When using the EVF or LCD, the AF point size is reset by switching to manual focus, or using the OVF
  • In video mode, a full-press of the shutter is required to start recording, but only a half-press to stop
  • In video mode, autofocus is continuous regardless of focus switch position (AF-S / AF-C)
  • Magnified manual focus assist is not available in video mode
  • The ND filter is not available in motion panorama or video modes
  • Depth of field scale appears to have been calculated for a 35mm actual (rather than equivalent) lens, making it distinctly conservative
  • When shooting JPEGs in 16:9 aspect ratio, the EVF and LCD displays are cropped accordingly, but the OVF displays 3:2 framelines. It's possible to enable 16:9 guidelines, but unlike the framelines they're not parallax-corrected
  • Camera can only be woken from auto power off by half-pressing and holding the shutter button
  • In playback, when magnifying a portrait format image the enlarged area is shown in a 3:2 portrait format area (even if shot at 16:9), wasting most of the screen area
  • Images can't be deleted in the Detailed Information playback mode
  • Images shot in 16:9 JPEG + RAW can only be reconverted in-camera to 3:2 JPEGs
  • Images shot in continuous drive mode use a completely different file naming convention (which causes problems with sorting)
  • Battery can be inserted the wrong way round, despite having an asymmetric shape
  • Supplied charger won't accept the battery directly, instead it requires a (supplied, but unlabelled) adapter piece to be fitted first
