Habemus camera

by Volker Weber

I destroyed my Canon G11 last week by dropping it, for the second time. Time to get a replacement. I tried to argue with myself that I did not really need a camera, but I lost. Or won. What do you know? I was on both sides of the argument.

Today I went to Fotogena and bought a Fujifilm X10 for 379€. Great value. Cheapest price on Amazon was 387,10€. Buy local!

Du hast gewonnen. Ich ko**e jedesmal, wenn ich auf Skitour bin und nur mein Handy zum Foto schiessen dabei habe: der Bildausschnitt bei hellem Sonnenschein und Schnee in den Bergen gerät jedesmal zum Glücksspiel. Die Fuji hat noch einen Sucher - allein das ist in vielen Outdoorsituationen Gold wert.

Mit Sonnenblende drauf ist das Case hier erste Wahl:

Bei dem kann man Akku und SD-Karte wechseln, ohne das Case abzunehmen und beides brauchst du zwingend, weil der Akku nicht per USB geladen wird und auch der USB-Dateitransfer nicht wirklich dolle ist. Ansonsten m.E. ein sehr gutes Preis/Leistungsverhältnis.

Wobei ich selbst heute noch lieber die neue X20 nehmen würde, da ich sehr gerne den Sucher benutze und die X10 leider die Zeit und Blende nicht im Sucher anzeigen kann.

If you keep dropping them, perhaps you'd be best off with one of these:

Fotogena? Sehr löblich!

I also recently replaced my G11 but I went with a high end Sony. It shoots RAW, lots of manual options & is very small. Pricy though. http://store.sony.com/p/Sony-Cyber-shot-DSC-RX100-Camera/en/p/DSCRX100/B

Very good choice, Amy!

Support local is a great idea. But sites like fotogena are pushing you towards the big players if you're new in town. :(

Kai, the moment you enter their shop you will know why local business is good.

Yup, three thumbs up for Fotogena. Just bought my EOS 6D there a few weeks ago. They know what they're doing, they can repair and maintain cameras on-site, AND they have good prices. So, indeed - buy local! I recommend them to anyone asking about camera stuff.

Oh, and - cute camera. But I seem to remember a blog post a while back telling your readers that with the quality of cameras in today's mobile phones, nobody would need compact cameras any more.

Ich lerne jeden Tag dazu.

I've had a look at the Sony RX100 and although it is more pocket-sized I found it to be too tiny/fiddly with the buttons. So it is the Fujifilm X20 now, and bought locally.
