Now I am gradually learning to master the X10, and to love it.
Robert Mathews
My only complaint --- I wish the book were spiral-bound so it would lay flat while I am trying to both read and fiddle with my camera at the same time.
Concerned About Movies
The book is very well written and so is easy to read and explains clearly how each feature of the camera is used.

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.

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.

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.

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".

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.

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.
