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.Read more ›
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 would say 80% of this book applies to the X-S1, it is the manual that should have been included with the camera IMHO.
With that said, I bought the B&W version to save some $$ initially, and the author did send along a color copy upon request in PDF, epub, or kindle versions, your choice. And as much as I love having my table with me when shooting to look up info, at home I wanted the color version. So I also bought the color version.
Bottom line, skip the B&W version, you absolutely NEED the color version for most of the book to see what is being described. Save a few weeks more & grab the color version, you will thank me later. As for requesting a color e-version when you buy the color version, I am not sure if he would send it along...but it would not hurt to try! LOL!
In 338 pages, this book covers ALL the functions and settings and explains in plain English how they all work. The X20 is basically like the X10 with the exception of a few things, so that the guide is very helpful for both cameras. I purchased the B&W edition but wish I had the color version because some of the illustrations depict color operations. Also, the photos are all very small and lack impact because of it. The paper could be better too.
A few days ago I purchased the X30 from Amazon. I am in hopes that this book will be helpful in that case also, at least until an X30 guide book is produced.
This book has increased the value of my purchase and has enabled me to gain better knowledge of the cameras functions thereby providing me with better images from a very nice retro look camera.

Very deep description of this camera. The book really deciphers the cryptic manual. I only would have liked to see less of the funny indoor photos of figurines.Published 24 days ago by Elmar Schmidt
I was a useful, if not completely comprehensive, guide. I used it as a guide to the X30, which is somewhat different in it's operation, but I still found this book quite helpful.Published 3 months ago by David B. Avigdor
The Fuji X10 is a great camera, but the instruction manual that comes with it is a nightmare. Thank goodness I found this book. It is absolutely essential if you own an X10. Read morePublished 20 months ago by Sherry Stephens

Best manual for the Fuji X10, describing all the possibilities of this camera. Highly recommended.
Good resource to use in conjunction with the provided Fuji manual. It offers additional clarification of features that may not be clear in the original Fuji guide.Published 23 months ago by D. Clarke
