Melbourne pics on the Fuji X10

The time has come to retire my small, go everywhere street camera as some of the new technology is very inviting, these pictures were from a walk around the city and are the last pictures taken on this great little camera. The only weak point has been the inaccurate optical finder, there are times when the sun and daylight are too bright to use the EVF on the back of the camera and the optical finder is very handy. It is an interesting fact that nobody holds on to digital cameras for long any more, not like film cameras where a mechanical analog body would seem to last forever even in the hands of a busy pro. As film quality advanced you would change to the newer film. Now as the sensor quality advances you change the camera. In the end I suppose the overall cost remains the same.
