Speaking as someone who used to write instruction material for Kodak, I found the structure of Fuji's manual convoluted and the instructions obscure. Above all, you can't find anything, as the booklet has no index. A reference book without an index is bordering on insanity.
In contrast, this book by Alexander White is a model of how a guide should be written. It is comprehensive, logical and crystal clear, with an excellent index. It also provides sensible and useful advice throughout on how to start using this complex little beast and get to grips with the multitude of functions provided.
Fuji should give a free copy of this book with every X10 it sells. But as it doesn't, all users should order one from Amazon immediately.
Well... It could have been, except that rather than just giving us aperture, speed and ISO controls, Fuji saw fit to cram so many additional electronic options into their lovely little retro-styled product.
Not only that, but the system design and menu architecture of the X10 sometimes confounds us with illogical and poorly thought-out options that sometimes seem to defy all reasoning and sense.
Fortunately, this book helps considerably in the owner's quest to discover a route through the maze of menus and options. It's been written by someone who obviously knows the X10 through experience, rather than a techie from Fuji's factory.
The book in my opinion could have been about half the size it is had the author dispensed with a lot of the more basic photographic theory. However, to someone for whom the X10 is their first step up from traditional "point'n'squirt" cameras or even cellphones, it will provide an abundance of knowledge in an easy-to-understand manner.
I would have liked to have seen included a laminated pocket-sized "Cheat sheet" with menu functions and settings on (Like Nikon used to give you with their professional SLRs back in the day) But other than that, no real complaints.
Maybe a little pricey for what it is, but it's no worse in this regard than the "Magic Lantern" series of guide books, so not unreasonable in terms of value for money.
Not a substitute for hands-on time with the camera, but a useful step along the road to mastery of the X10. Recommended.
A good book although I opted for the Kindle version as the price of the the book itself was a little too steep for me.
