ageha: D610 for me.
You could buy a D600 for cheap with a coupon for a can of oil.
Maybe if Sony silk screened Canon on the front of this little gem it would have garnered a gold rating. But the croissant eating crowd at dpr knows best, farce.
Pik2004: WTF Nikon! $900 for f/3.5 at 70mm (35mm equalv)? for 2.5X crop sensor. That is pretty ridiculous! I've been using Nikon for past 30 years, but things like this really disappoint me. 2.5x crop sensor was more than enough...All I ever wanted was simple 1.5x crop sensor mirrorless camera, so I could use my DX lenses. Please don't make me jump to crappy Sony or Samsung for mirrorless and purchase whole new system.
Essai: redneck entertainment !
Crawl back in your cave, up in the mountains.
simon65: "We do find some questionable decisions, the most obvious being the lack of a touchscreen"
I ask you to consider that touchscreens may be more popular in the DPR office than in the market generally. I would far rather find easily accessible external controls (like the new top dial) and lens rings that can change apertures than I would touchscreen.
But then I also have no interest in wifi. I have no use for it, and its certainly not something I wish to pay extra for. My usb cable works just fine and doesn't clutter up the household environment with yet more needless EMF radiation.
All in all I upgrade when a camera offers a discernible increase in IQ, build quality and external controls, and new breakthroughs in sensor/weight/size ratios (ie bigger sensors in smaller cameras). Sony is definitely moving in the right direction in all these areas, which is why I am now in the Sony rather than the Canon camp, but touchscreens, wifi, and assorted gizmoes move me not.
I'm glad to see that people are never happy.
RStyga: Call me shallow but holding a camera with the SONY logo ot its forehead is a huge turn off. And for enthusiasts (i.e., non professionals) it is a big deal. It detracts from the photographic feeling... Why didn't they hide it like Panasonic does in (at least some of) their Lumix series? What's wrong with introducing a similar branding? Even DPReview mentioned that using "Cybershot" for this camera is a brave decision by Sony. Branding is important.
No, no, no, Andy...Style and name is EVERYTHING, photography, not so much...I agree with you.
pentaxination: I have to say; this camera is butt-ugly as it is and worse yet with the ovf on it. I cannot see this first edition doing extremely well with the real enthusiast crowd...
I always thought that a person needs a DSLR with a OVF or a really stylish looking rangefinder with an OVF to take good pixels. I will be shocked if this camera actually takes a good pixel, in total darkness that's worthy to peep at. I for one will buy this camera if it takes a good picture, but then i'm not a hipster into the latest fashion.
Ridethelight: Found the G1x unuseable,autofocus is terrible,IQ is brilliant but negated by the slower lens compared to the X10,as i now mainly print up to A4 max and view images on my Ipad 3 the X10 images look great for what i need,maybe for more critical stuff you will want a more capable sensor etc,but after 10 yrs of digital i'm sick of PP and computers, the X10 jpegs just work and lets me concentrate on photography !!! some people should try that instead of bitching.
You got that right!
IMHO, best Sony spot on the planet.As a Sony owner your tutorials and videos are an extra handbook for me.Thanks!
amblepath: I don't know if she has little hands but the Xpro-1 looks rather massive.
Does the shutter work on this model?Is R&D being left to the customer again?
PC Wheeler: Organic? Do they plan to sell it in health food stores?
Seriously, Fujifilm does have a history of sensor innovation. It will be interesting to see where this one leads.
Too bad fujifilm doesn't have a workable shutter blade patent that they could apply to the X-100.
cprevost: Dang! Fuji just said they are aware of the problem and will release a fix in short order. Wonder why so many people want to hang them for that? Look at the first 5 news stories for the day on this website and you will see that they are ALL camera manufacturers issuing firmware fixes to correct stuff that doesn't work right in their cameras. Chillax and see what Fuji does to fix the problem. Can't wait for my x10 to arrive next week.
As I said before: People don't like being the R&D dept. for a product, they prefer that R&D be done before product release.I think that's reasonable.
max metz: After using the x10 camera this is a very minor non issue, Fujifilm has produced a beautiful piece of equipment in the x10, the fact that they are addressing it shows their depth of commitment to the x-series.
The x100 sticky aperture blade problem was fixed in short order, a complete redesign of the outer aperture blade control mechanism and they appear to be replacing the complete lens on affect cameras – again remarkable support.
For anyone used to using a premium dslr, the little x10 is a revelation.
That's called: How to go out of business 101.With all the effort they are putting into making crap products that are not fully developed, Fugi will develop a bad name.They can follow GM to the trash heap.
The fact is that Fuji is using the customer as an R&D Department.They will get the shutter blades straightened out for the next version of the X-100, now that you have found the problem. The issues with the X-10 will be solved with the next version, don't worry. I hope they solve the problems before you run out of money buying new Fuji's. R&D is rough work and I applaud those that work for Fuji, even if it is the customer.
RandomMarius: Is it also limited to 30 minutes of video?
Government created the 30 minute limit with taxing policies.Too bad that they can't keep out of a market.
hotinaz: Where is the viewfinder, by like trying to take sports pictures with a 4x5 view camera. Hunk of junk.
I'll +4 that motion!
