    After it's announced. Panasonic has never gotten us a camera before the official announcement. But they do seem to like us, so hopefully we'll see it soon.

    you should be able to figure it out...
    Does auto-ISO allow for a minimum shutter speed setting? If so, how high? Fuji finally got much better about this with their APS sensor cameras - wondering if it carried over to the X30?

    Thanks,

    Good review, the only con I agree on is that the ISO in stills doesn't carry over into the video mode automatically which can be fixed in a firmware update.

    I'd rather a 24-96mm lens but I'm sure the X40 would have that.

    even the guy in Wisconsin thinks snow in early September is ridiculous. Nice puddle shots, though. :wink:

    Nice review, Jordan. I recently sold my X10. Watching this video makes me wonder if I shouldn't have held onto it. So what's the temperature in Calgary today?

    I always enjoy watching these reviews, but I find it helps if I put on a warm sweater.

    The minimum shutter speed in Auto ISO goes up to 1/125th. The interface to change these settings is pretty quick as well.

    Much nicer! It's a balmy 3 Degrees Celsius.

    Arrrrgggghhhh! Bummer. That's what the larger sensor cameras used to be - I find it more or less useless. Then the XE2 and XT1 allowed minimum shutter speeds up to 1/500 and then they updated the firmware in at least teh XE1 and X-Pro 1 to do the same thing. So I was hoping that might be basic standard going forward.

    Oh well - I wasn't likely gonna buy one anyway...
