Which camera has better image quality for predominantly scenery and flowers - X20 or Sony RX100? May 10, 2013
Hello, in all honesty, both cameras will provide very similar performance. There may be slight color rendition differences based on each manufacturer's profile, but what is "better" in that case is purely subjective. If one were to take a series of pictures with both cameras, at the same time, of the same subject material, print them out and place them on a table, it would be nearly impossible to tell the difference. Essentially what that means is that both cameras are very good, and you would likely be just as happy with either camera since the image quality will be equally high in both. Thanks, and let us know if you have any other questions.
Is there a mechanism for add-on lenses? I''m not asking if it has interchangeable lenses, I'm asking if there is a way to use my Olympus and Raynox add-on lenses in a manner similar to the lens accessory collar that my old Canon G3 had? May 30, 2013
I assume you mean wide and/or teleconverter add-ons, like the WCL-X100 wide converter for the X-100s? If so, no, there are none offered by Fuji. That said, you could buy the filter adapter set from Fuji or a 3rd party, and then add any number of generic converters; quality would likely suffer, though. Mostly curious: what is your intended use case? Perhaps there is a better solution (camera) for you.
Continuous shooting: 1. At 10fps how many frames can you shoot (JPEG)? 2. Is there a SLOWER continuous shooting mode, maybe around 5fps? Aug 10, 2013
There are 3 burst modes: 3fps, 6 fps, and 9 fps. In max resolution with JPG+RAW storing, I can get about 10 continuous pictures. I assume it's higher if you go to less data intensive modes
I need to make a decision, Canon G12 or Fuji X20? (I'm already own a Canon S95). Both are new to the market (not many comparison, just specs). Thanks Dec 13, 2013
I'm not familiar with the Canon but I do own the Fuji X20. It's my favorite walk-around camera and the images are great. It's a workhorse wrapped in a small, light package. Great camera. I also own the Fuji XPro1 and even use that one for studio work. Fuji images are simply wonderful.
Can you buy other lenses for this camera? Also, can it create a depth of field that makes the backgrounds blurry creating a bokeh effect? Jan 8, 2014
The X20 has a very good fixed lens--equivalent to 28-112 mm--and a fast f/2-2.8. Truthfully that's all you need for 90% of all pictures, and you can master the menus to get a super-macro at the wider focal lengths. As far as "bokeh," you need to put this camera on aperture-preferred setting (A), set your aperture, and have the camera set the shutter speed. You can get a good "bokeh" at 50-112 mm. equivalents at f/2-2.8. Be sure to use the face-recognition mode if using portraits, or set your camera to focus on the eyes. You can download a .pdf of the manual from Fuji--this has a search function and is very easy to use on your computer or mobile device!
