Thanks all for your interest in my snapshot (on the way to morning coffee after dropping the kids at school) and its circumstances!

To Randy: as a D70 graduate, I am accustomed to what I can do with "only" 6MP (the quotes in my original post were there! ) - it's just that it's only half of what one could get out of the machine! I am not disappointed in any way... I even have A3+ prints from files out of a CoolPix 5400!

To Roger: it seems that your tag line about "ISO, shutterspeed and shutterspeed" is about to be obsolete I went back to the file, and I could find nothing more about the technical aspects of it. I do remember setting the camera to EXR, choosing "EXR auto" in the menu", and that's about it. I adjusted and shot, and in post I just made it a bit straighter than it was, just a rotation with crop in LR. I also noticed the cyan fuji-like sky, but it did not disturb me until you mentioned it. My latitude for adjustment is narrow, though, with just a jpeg file, so I'll accept it as it is and will also think of Fuji films - funnily, I remember preferring Kodak print emulsions because I found them to be warmer, and now I shoot a Fuji camera

Actually, the only situation(s) when I really don't shoot in EXR mode is/are at night. I prefer shooting at base or low ISO on a tripod. That linked shot was taken before I had the sensor replaced and strangely does not have orbs that are too visible - they have adopted the shape of the streetlamps of Venice! I don't have an exif reader at work, but I'm pretty sure it was not taken in any of the EXR modes, because I had tried them and had noticed that the X10 always does its best to allow handheld shooting, and so climbs the ISO ladder pretty quickly to gain speed!

Finally, I must confess that I am not really interested in examining every possible cross-aspect of DR vs ISO vs aperture and so forth... and I am also not as disappointed as some by the problems with raw files. I do shoot raw files too, and I do develop them in LR3.6 much to my satisfaction, with of course a much shorter DR than what I get from my D700. The X10 I use for what it is: a compact, no-brainer camera that I can have in my backpack without ill-effects on my spine, or even in a (large) coat pocket!

Hope this helps!
