I've not been really using my DSLR kit for months now the previously purchased Fujifilm X10 has proved quite wonderful when out and about, but I've also started using it indoors for studio work and have been very happy with the results. However, there are a couple of things that I didn't like, one was the limited area shown by the viewfinder making it necessary to use the screen. Also I always use a lens hood (vital I feel for studio work) which is visible in the viewfinder on the X10. So an X30 was purchased, which not only has a tilting rear screen to aid those low level shots, but the viewfinder isn't an optical one but an electronic screen which provides a view through the lens - wonderful. All this added to the beautiful retro design, substantial build quality, more functions than you can shake a stick at and that's even before you consider the stunning picture quality means I'm really enjoying ownership of this wonderful camera - I just feel its a shame that Fuji don't seem to be taking this camera forward with future models, looks like this might be the last in the line of their zoom lens compacts :-(
Anyway, my Canon kit is now mostly sold - don't really miss what I wasn't using.
Born in 1956 (so getting on a bit now) I'm married and have two wonderful children we all live in Devon in the South West of England - on the Cornish border.
