One of the first photographs I shot with the Canon G1X
I'm currently preparing my upcoming art fair, which will be held in Milan (Italy) next April. While selecting the photographs to be shown I was struck by the huge percentage of Canon G10's shots among them. This is certainly due to the fact that a Canon G camera is purposely designed as a carry-everywhere tool, so much so that I actually have been carrying it always (I mean, always) with me. Besides, the G10 is the camera I have been the most faithful to since my switch to digital capture, as I bought it as soon as it was released in 2008 and foolishly trade it in just a couple of months ago in order to fund the purchase of a Fuji X10. As PhotoGraphia regulars may recall, I was deeply unsatisfied with the X10 (my Fuji X10 review can be read here) and a couple of days later I gave it back to my photo-gear pusher in exchange of a last generation (I presumed) Canon G-series camera, the G12.
A photograph I took with the Fujifilm X10 premium compact camera
I wasn't sure I would post my impressions about the new Fujifilm X10 premium compact, as this camera became unusually popular long before anybody could actually run a real test over it. On the other hand this cute artifact is now gaining such a success among reviewers all over the magazines and the web, that I feel I must be loyal to PhotoGraphia readers and frankly tell them my opinion.
