Book Description

This book, a complete guide to the operation and features of the Fujifilm X10 digital camera, is a follow-up to the author’s earlier guides to advanced compact digital cameras, including the Fujifilm FinePix X100, as well as models by Leica, Panasonic, Canon, and Nikon. The new book explains all operations, features, menus, and controls of the Fujifilm X10 camera in clear language, providing guidance not only about how to accomplish things with the camera, but when and why to use certain features. The book does not assume any specialized knowledge by the reader, but explains topics such as shooting modes, autofocus, manual focus, depth of field, aperture priority, shutter priority, HDR (High Dynamic Range) photography, white balance, ISO, and macro photography. The book shows how to take advantage of the camera’s unique CMOS sensor with Fujifilm’s EXR technology. This special sensor enables the camera to be configured for high resolution, high sensitivity in dim lighting, or high dynamic range, depending on the lighting conditions the photographer is faced with. The book also provides guidance about the many the X10’s many other advanced settings, including adjustments for Color, Sharpness, Highlight Tone, Shadow Tone, and numerous others.

The guide’s more than 200 photographs, almost all in full color when viewed on color devices, provide illustrations of the camera’s controls and menus, and include examples of the various types of photographs that can be taken using the many creative settings of the camera, including the Film Simulation settings, which let the photographer alter the color processing and other aspects of images; various menu options such as Dynamic Range and Intelligent Digital Zoom; and the camera’s strong set of features for continuous shooting.

In addition, the book goes beyond everyday photography with introductions to more advanced topics such as infrared photography, astrophotography, digiscoping, street photography, and creating 3D (three-dimensional) images that can be viewed with conventional red and blue 3D glasses.

The book also includes a full discussion of the video recording abilities of the Fujifilm X10, which can capture high-definition (HD) video with stereo sound and can take silent slow-motion movies to enable studies of sports and other actions.

In three appendices, the book provides information about accessories available for the camera, including cases, filter adapters, and external flash units; sets forth a list of useful web sites and other resources for further information; and includes a section with helpful “quick tips” that give particular insights into how to take advantage of the camera’s features in the most efficient ways possible.

The book includes a detailed Table of Contents and a full Index, so the reader can quickly find needed information about any particular feature or aspect of the camera. In the Kindle version, the Table of Contents and Index are interactive, so the reader can click on a page reference to navigate to the desired topic instantly.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you have an X10, you should have this book! May 9, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Having decided to buy a more sophisticated camera I purchased my Fujifilm X10 almost as soon as it came out, and when I opened the box I immediately studied the included owner's manual. Like most company-written manuals it quickly explained the camera's settings but, like most company manuals, it didn't give any suggestions about which settings were considered "standard" and which should only be chosen for a particular situation. It just explained what each function and setting did. (The manual was actually written better than most, but it tended to overwhelm me with unnecessary details before I understood the camera's basic functions and controls.) After setting up my camera and taking many, many photos I felt a bit frustrated that I never really achieved the results I felt I should get from such a camera. There's no doubt that this is an amazing camera, and I felt that the photos I took with it should be consistently outstanding. But to be honest, my photos seemed to be about the same quality as I had achieved with my cheaper point-and-shoot cameras.

Then I purchased this book. Wow! After reading the first few pages I realized that I hadn't chosen the correct settings for my needs; hadn't downloaded the newest Firmware update (the author tells you how); and never realized what I could do with this incredible camera. This book has been a revelation! Reading it is like having one of the designers from the Fujifilm camera factory sit down with you and slowly but methodically explain the camera's functions one by one. The author, Alexander White, tells you what settings to use if you just want to snap vacation photos, and what to do if you want to utilize the camera's advanced functions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Camera--Best Book June 7, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've been a professional photographer for over 40 years, starting with 5X7 b&w sheet film and now working with digital. I was looking for the best small camera to carry at all times everywhere, and after much online research bought the Fujifilm X10. I have not been disappointed.

However, even though the X10 came with a pretty good instruction book, it still left many questions unanswered--and the same questions also went unanswered on the Internet. For instance, can you use exposure compensation in the EXR mode? When using EXR (which is one of the main reasons to buy this camera), what are the best settings to use? Is Program Mode better than the EXR mode? What are the advantages and disadvantages of each?

The author answers all of these questions in clear English, all accompanied by photographs to illustrate his descriptions and explanations, and (important) a good table of contents and index.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good for the X20 as well October 19, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Having purchased an X20 and found the Fuji manual adequate but lacking, I decided to try this book in the hopes of more than a little application to the X20. First of all, this is a complete, easy-to-understand, well illustrated guide to the X10. I have gone through this book page-by-page with my X20 in hand, twirling knobs and fooling with the menus. In my opinion, it is 90% applicable to the X20. BTW, I am not 'an enthusiast'--whatever that means--just a guy who owns one camera at a time and takes photos.

3.0 out of 5 stars Book need review on some pages. August 6, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I looked the Amazon preview of the book. And some pages needs to be reviwed.

If you see pages like page 82 and page 84, appear to be written for Cannon Power Shot S100. You can see on the letter head the title "PHOTOGRAPHER'S GUIDE TO THE CANNON POWERSHOT S100".

5.0 out of 5 stars Helpful book for using the Fujifilm X10 September 1, 2012
By Cooker
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is exactly what the title says - a guide to the X10. The X10 is a very complex camera, with many different settings and menus. The manual provided by Fuji gives a cursory description of each item, but there is virtually no discussion as to how the function should be used. Alexander White, in his book, discusses the functions in detail, and explains how their use translates into actual photographs, for which he provides examples. As the title indicates, these photographs are in B & W, so it is not possible to see any colour rendering. However, the B & W edition is significantly cheaper than the version with colour reproductions, and Mr. White indicates that he will send copies of the full colour exemplary photographs upon email request.

The book is very well written and so is easy to read and explains clearly how each feature of the camera is used. So far it has answered all my questions. I would strongly recommend this book to anyone who has bought or is intending to buy the X10, especially for those people who are not very experienced photographers.

I recently ordered the now discontinued Fuji X-S1 super-zoom bridge camera. This book, tho aimed at the X10, is very useful for the X-S1 as well as they are very similar in many respects. They share the same ⅔" CMOS chip and many of the controls and shooting modes are the same. This is a very thorough book, well written and highly recommended for owners of either of these camera. I found it to be an interesting and rewarding experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent and necessary guide. July 2, 2012
Format:Paperback
I will not repeat content of other reviewers of this excellent guide to the Fujifilm X-10 camera, a compact that is sadly let down somewhat by a sometimes unclear user manual. Alexander S.White has done users a favour with this highly informative but equally importantly, easy-to-use illustrated guide. It is well worth its price as it helps one navigate the camera's many features to maximise efficient us of the feature-packed X-10. Well done!
