Its not me. (1:51 AM, July 17, 2013)
the X20 is a winner, best thing about it is the Xsync speed of 1/4000 of a second. Nice blue skies, on bright sunny days with full power flash lighting the subject. Using it for family photos while my D700 sits in the case. Ok not for clients to see, unless you don't have three or four flashes to make up for reduced power of HSS. I get the same effect with three or sometimes more flashes with HSS, but who does family pictures with half a dozen flashes? Sorry Nikon, I wanted a true HSS with full flash power on those bright sunny days without a bunch of flashes, my family will not wait for me to setup the shot.



Has everything anyone would need except super zoom lens 200mm plus, F stop is good, high ISO is liveable. I have been waiting for the D700s, it never came, I have video now, for less than $700. Wish Nikon had made a D700s, I guess one day I will get a D4, but this little Fuji X20 works well, looks really funny with an SB800 on top of it, but it works for what I need. Great third camera in the bag.
