You can even choose from 4 shutter sounds: “Mirror Up”, “Focal Plane”, “Lens Shutter” or “Silent”.
Coordinating with the texture of X10's metal body, the aluminum lens cap looks the part and fits snugly thanks to its fabric liner attached to its step-machined inner surface.
For photographers who always want access to detailed exposure control, the Exposure Compensation Dial is positioned in easy reach of your right thumb for smooth ±2EV adjustment in 1/3 EV steps without taking your eye away from composing your shot.
Optimally positioned so you can concentrate on framing your shot, aperture and shutter speed settings are operated with the main command and sub-command dials for quick and easy selection of Aperture Priority AE, Shutter Speed Priority, AE, Program AE and Manual exposure settings.
From a choice of “MULTI METERING” for accurate response to a variety of lighting conditions, “SPOT” metering for precise reading of approximately 2% of viewfinder area in the centre of the screen, and “AVERAGE METERING” for an average exposure setting for the entire scene, you can swiftly select the best metering for your shot.
When using the LCD, you will enjoy 100% coverage on a sharp image display delivered by a 2.8-inch high-contrast LCD monitor delivering 460,000-dot of resolution. From precision framing of macro shots with “Live View” to quick post-shot reviewing of your results.
Before shooting, the built-in histogram display provides an at-a-glance confirmation of brightness levels. Together with the exposure compensation dial on the top control deck, this tool makes it simple to confirm you have the right exposure setting, and take great photos.
When composing a shot in the spacious LCD, the built-in electronic level display makes it easy to align the image with the true horizon.
The default format is JPEG, but if you want to take the next shot in RAW, with just a touch of the RAW Button, you can switch to JPEG+RAW and capture the next scene in both formats.
Bringing you the X10, a modern classic instrument with ultimate design and operability.
