On article Field Test: Brad Puet and the Fujifilm X-T10 (120 comments in total)
In reply to:

vesa1tahti: In many messages, people are reminiscing film times. Fuji films were excellent, but their time is over now. 'Film simulation modes' may be interesting for those who remember the film photography in general. Those modes don't have any meaning in today's and future cameras (or at least the names of modes ought to be changed to be relevant for younger photographers, too).

@vesa1tahti, carry what extra load from the past? So, what "modern names for the programs, names, that are understandable by the youngest photographers" did you have in mind?

ThePhilips: Pana tried very very hard to convince me that I need to upgrade my GX7...

You must be trying very very hard thinking that's what Pana is trying to do.

J A C S: "...With a 24-200mm F2.8 lens..."?

It is 8.8-73.3 on 1 " sensor, or 24-200 equivalent on a FF sensor.

Pandimonium: yeah let's peep at pixels. It's not as sharp as the rx100 IV. There i said it. But then more range so no need to crop :p

The RX10 II is much sharper at the corners.

In reply to:

DrummerCT: Can someone explain further, "the F2.8 lens may seem fast, but when you take into account that it is really the equiv. of F8 wide open"

F2.8 is not F2.8?

F2.8 refers to lens aperture, but depth of field is dependent upon sensor size. The larger the sensor, the shallower the depth of field. If you want to compare the depth of field equivalent of a 1" sensor relative to full frame, then you must multiply the F number to its crop factor of 2.7. So depth of field for F2.8 aperture on a 1" sensor is equivalent to approx. F7.6 on a full frame sensor.

In reply to:

stupidisanart: The lack of weather sealing is a deal breaker for me, this would have be a great camera as a walk around otherwise.

Who says it is necessary? It sure makes it better if you have to shoot in wet, humid, and dusty environments. You don't really expect cameras to be constructed like 70 years ago, do you? Pentax proves it can be done without increasing the size and/or cost.

Absolutely YES!!! Pentax K-S2 priced at $450 is weather sealed, and so are practically all their DSLRs. So what's this "market segment" excuse that would justify Olympus leaving out weather sealing?

I don't think I'd be asking too much for an external mic. jack with wireless flash capability for a camera at this price.

Shame to have this turned into a political forum. This piece can be found elsewhere if anyone cares to read about it. DPR is not the place for it. What have this got to do with reviewing cameras and photography?

In reply to:

starjedi: Interesting. I saw Pixel shift + K3II easily beats D810!!!

Pixel shift was never meant for moving subjects in the first place. While D810 beats the K3II without pixel shift, so does the Pentax 645Z beating the D810 by a wide margin.

In reply to:

RichRMA: Pixel shift eliminates moire and sharpens up the scene, but is no where near as dramatic as the Olympus shift HR mode.

Dramatic does not mean better. Olympus does increase the file size.

Imagine a Pentax FF with pixel shift.

The K3 II jpeg color rendition is a lot better than the K3.

Against the Pentax 645Z the D810 is a shame.

Horshack: Given the choice I'd prefer a camera that doesn't turn off vs one that doesn't turn on :)

You can start worrying if it doesn't turn off after taking the battery out.

In reply to:

CameraLabTester: Lets give great admiration and encouragement to the content writers of this review.

They really have to scrounge up their adjectives to come up with describing this mediocre product that have been put on a pedestal by Market Spin Doctors.

Canon consumer cameras are the epitome of Marketing Spin.

.

Another boring boxy product. At this rate, Canon and Nikon will go the way of the dinosaur. Brand name recognition is not going to save them if this continues.

nikkornikon: I got a message from the President of Canon, Mr. Akihiro Canon and he wanted me to tell you all...If you don't like this camera, and it's over the top price, and no 4k, and our rather Old Dusty Sensor..or any up to date features on other cameras, then by all means, move along to Sony. Thanks...Mr. Akihiro Canon.

Mr. Akhiro Canon also spoke to me. He said he is firing the engineers that still build cameras using old sensors with no 4K video or built in EVF.

Compared to the Sony RX10 II, this roll out from Canon is a disaster. With the optional EVF add-on at around $250, it's about the same price too. Yikes!!!

In reply to:

the-bunker: Re missing EVF - maybe that's why canon have gone very quiet on this Camera - they are busy re-designing it (with an EVF)
Lets hope...

Yeah right. They finished putting it together and oops ... forgot the EVF. Now its an optional add on for around $250. It would be bad enough if it comes bundled with the camera at no extra cost.
