    Default Fujifilm x10 or DSLR 1st descent camera

    Hi guys, I would like your advise between Fujifilm x10 or DSLR. I interested in streets photography, I'm now confuse which one to go for. Fujifilm x10 cost round $800 and for DSLR around $1k, this will be my 1st descent camera. I looking for Retro feel camera that's provide good picture quailty. My budget is $800-$1.1k, u can also recommend other type of camera I'm OK with it.

    I would like to hear everybody thought! Thanks

    If you don't mind 35mm f/2 prime may I suggest the Fuji X100?

    Some people find it obtrusive to shoot streets with a DSLR, not sure about you though.
    Fujifilm X-Pro2 Graphite, X-Pro1
    XF 14/2.8, 18/2, 23/2, 35/1.4, 56/1.2, 60/2.4, 55-200/3.5-4.8

    I find it disadvantage without the zoom, but it's bigger sensor. If things can bring over x100 it would be a perfect camera!

    A "Descent" camera? Are you using the camera to go underground or skydiving? In that case I suggest you get the GoPro Hero HD.

    If you want zoom and a bigger sensor, the Canon G1x sounds like the one you are looking for.

    U might want to look at the olympus om-d too if you want the retro look

    I'd recommend u to get a smaller camera instead of a dSLR if you will only be shooting on the street

    You might want to look at a m4/3 camera too.
    IMO, its a better option for the same price.
    Most of them are abt the size of a x10 too.
