Apparently on March 12th Fuji will release information on their fix for the white orbs problem in the X10.

Releasing information and "fixing" are not the same. The light blooms are a function of the sensor, not the software. It's likely that they won't have a permanent fix. I'll remain hopeful, but can't imagine how they'll solve an inherent design problem for those few X10s with the problem.

Maybe they'll give me $600.00 off on the purchase of an X-PRO1. Maybe not.

I don't follow your reasoning – if it is an inherent design problem would it not affect all the X10s?

'Definitive solution' sounds like a fix to me.

The simple question is: How much will this solution cost the end user who already owns a orbing camera? Plus: How will this solution affect overall image quality, aka are there any side effects?

As for the solution itself: I heard about a possible fix almost a month ago, but since I'm not qualified to talk about and judge technical details, I'm certainly not able to discuss it w/o making a fool out of myself. Hoewever, if this particular solution is indeed the one that will materialize, it won't involve changing the entire sensor, but only a part that is associated with it. Since WDS doesn't really affect my real photography with thr X10, I'm in wait and see mode: How well does it work, what are potential side effects?

They will come with a statement that there is no problem, that it is only a internet magnification of a phenomena not only the X10 suffers.

Or maybe they will try to sell it as a feature.

The X11 will have a solution.

Remember the IR thing on the M8? I worked with the M8 for one day and brought it back. Leica stated it was only a minor effect on certain black fabrics. Tell that to somebody who need to make series of peoples in black tuxedo......

:rolleyes:

Time will tell, and we have less than a week to wait. Let's be optimistic. And let's not beat up the subject, as most of us are clueless about what will be announced. And those of us who may know are remaining silent.

Maybe,....... but it would be a pity if the X11 still show the orbs.

As with all discussions on all forums that mention "orbs," this one has become, predictably, inane. It's in Fuji's court. Let's leave it there.
