Fujifilm X-T1 poor sample imagges
Feb 11, 2014

The Fujifilm X-T1 sample images as posted in dpreview image looks very bad- that is to say very poor. A first generation cell phone images are about as good Fujifilm X-T1.

Where am I missing the boat?

Welp. Looks like Fuji should just cancel releasing it.

I was set to buy the Fujifilm XE-2. I really like the new focus system on the E2. The X-T1 auto focus system should be better (and probably is better).

Slightly better ya but its pretty much the same camera in a different body. (sensor and processor) SO in theory they can probably release firmware updates to update to x-e2.

Btw i dont mean to insult anything here from DP but most pictures posted in the DP reviews are pretty bad. Dont know if its the pictures themselves or the website interface that makes them look bad lol. Either way Ray i wouldn't go buy any of those shots. (go check out the sony A7 ones.. pretty terribad and iv seen mind-blowing results from that camera over and over on other sites.)

I hoping the xe-2 drops in price soon. I like the RF style better.

This may not be the absolute bestway to get people on the forum to help you with your question.

There are many, many threads on this if you want to go and find them. In brief, as I understand it, DPR uses Lightroom as its default RAW processor, which coincidentally does a terrible job on Fujifilm X-Series files. Other RAW processors produce files that are just as good as those from any other modern 16Mb sensor (some claim better, some worse - there's not much in it really).

Assuming you're not trolling, you can go as deep into this question as you like if you search the forum for terms such as "ninja" and "iridient".

Just because someone is camera savvy does not mean they are photo savvy. Fuji is known for publishing less than compelling images. Sony has done the same at times. Some of the photography blogs I read they dudes are not great photographers, judging on what they post, but they know their hardware.

On an unrelated topic, I read a review of the ex 2 and the writer was not terribly impressed yet his images were some of the best I've seen. I wanted to write him and say dude did you even look at the photos you took and posted?? They were fabulous. He clearly knows photography but IQ doesn't seem to be his bottom line.

I almost cancelled my preorder when I saw them then I reminded myself that dpr sample images are always boring and less convincing.

Exactly the same as the X-E2 except tracking AF is faster with X-T1.

Your first mistake is looking at DPR sample images at all. They are kinda famous for taking pretty poor photos. They do good reviews, but actual photography... that's not their focus.

Wait till users actually buy X-T1's and start posting work.

And besides -- X-T1 is basically the X-E2. Go look at some quality X-E2 photos and you'll have an idea of what the X-T1 can do.

Such a poor post, like it was done on a first generation cell phone with no spell checker.

These look like images that are unprocessed or maybe over processed. Sky so blue, yellow and reds that look like you are land of Oz. The skin tone look natural to me. Just process, or over process to you hearts delight.

Or just drop some "Windowpane" before viewing.

Couple things. First it is important to know how DPREVIEW set Dynamic range it can affect the results.

Second, DPREVIEW sample pictures IMO have never been good across the board. I do not even look at them to make any buying decisions. Just never been impressed.

thanks for the review. you are right - my electronic gear is getting old - cutting edge fifty years ago. look up n4rqn amateur call sign - 76 year old amateur extra license - 30 wpm morse code.  i stand corrected. my first generation cell phone actually takes better pictures than the t1.

dereview does produce bad pictures. the folks that pay them are ones that don't have a clue about photography.
