Are there any X10 users here?
I'm just curious if there are any Fujifilm X10 users here at SC or if we only have X-Pro 1 owners.
Despite the limitations and well-known technical annoyances of the X10 I've really enjoyed using it as my "take everywhere" camera when I'm out with my kids. Here are a few snaps I've taken with the X10:

Nice work! Yes, there are several of us here with X10's; in my case, it's my favorite compact ever. As we speak, though, it's on a plane or truck heading to Edison NJ for a sensor transplant; hoping all goes well and that I'll have it back in a week or so.

There are more than a few, but a number, like me, are waiting for their cameras to return from a sensor swap
In the meantime here are some I did earlier... Fuji X10 - a set on Flickr

My favorite compact as well!!
Current Gear: A little bit of this and a little bit of that, but want more!

Great static electricity shot of your daughter!
X10 is one of my two cameras, the other being its older sibling. Glad to have you aboard, JJJphoto!
I'm still deciding about sending mine away for a transplant.

I might send mine in for sensor replacement, but to be honest, I've only seen orbs that "ruin" the image in three of my photos (and I've taken more than 280 images with the X10 since purchasing it). That averages out to a "orb failure rate of about 1 percent of my photos. Granted, most of what I use the X10 for is candid portraiture (no evening landscapes with lights or photos of the ocean) so my experience probably isn't "average."
If other users find that the sensor replacement makes a HUGE improvement then I'll send mine in, otherwise I'll probably just live with the X10 the way it is.

I sent mine in early to get it back in time for a vacation next month. During that vacation, I'll be on a seaside boardwalk at night with my kids and grandkids, with lots of bright lights in the amusement areas. Looks like the perfect storm for disk formation!

I look forward to hearing about your experience and results with the new sensor. That vacation indeed sounds like the perfect way to test if the new sensor resolves the orb issue.

Will carry a second camera with me to boardwalk - just in case!

Another X10 user here as well. I have to admit, it took me a little while to properly 'bond' with the camera, but I now carry it with me every day. I haven't seen too many orbs in my shots thus far, so I probably won't worry about the sensor replacement (also I haven't heard much about sensor replacement arrangements here in Aus).
