ancaster: As my DSLR alternative, if I have to carry something else, I see used RX100m3's for the same price albeit bigger, but not dependent on other hardware and won't drain my iPhone battery. $599 pricepoint will hurt significant sales.
As it offloads some things to the phone won't it therefore be using the phones battery as well as its own. Or will it feed the phone from its own battery while its plugged in.
Far too expensive but nice bit of tech.
naththo: Sony sensor is now nailed in the coffin! Can't believed it! Samsung trump over Sony by miles!

Nope, there isn't really any "issue" (meaning deficiency) with the Samsung NX lens line up, with the exception of not having released the big fast telephoto yet. But it exists.
And "quality" is not an adjective.
The review states that their lens line up isn't up to the task with few exceptions.
You say no deficiency with their line up then agree there is one with the lack of any fast prime. This camera is aimed at the higher end of the market and doesn't have have a lens line up to compete with say Canons rebel series.
Samsung's issue is their lens line up and their name. That's a lot of money to put on a camera body with a limited line up of quality lenses. Now imagine Nikon or Canon with their respective following introducing a camera like this. Camera forums would explode!
I hope Samsung put their full financial weight behind this camera as, even with Sony pushing, the market still needs another big name.
Canon/Nikon should have been the ones introducing this type of camera instead of relying on their market dominance.
munro harrap: There is also another good reason for keeping all the art we have here here. Its called war. You can see online what IS and the Taliban do, so their people's culture would be safer were it in the UK, all of ity, rather than in Iraq, Syria or Afghanistan, and we now also have to control who is allowed to buy stuff as any number of artworks purchased privately not only disappear into bank vaults,
but can be bought by people who then destroy them as ideologically unacceptable.I dare say that is already happening, so stop sales and guard our human heritage.
Wow so you aren't mentally impaired just stupid and ignorant beyond believe. The UK isn't a whites only country, far from it, something you would be aware of if you had half a brain cell or the ability to type on your keyboard without drooling on it.
Governments the world over attempt to hold onto historically important artifacts. Its about money sometimes and (I would hope in this instance) about protecting an important album that may otherwise fall into a private collection and be lost to the world not just the UK.
The original reference to ISIS/Taliban is due to their own propaganda videos showing them destroying priceless historic artifacts (statues usually) that we are now all the poorer to be without.
Also are you aware that you are been openly racist on an open forum. You are the only person to bring colour into this. Maybe you should be more thoughtful in what you post?
JDThomas are you mentally impaired in some way? The benefit of typing a response is the time it gives you to think (I believe this to be your problem) before you post. Give it a go you never know you may type something intelligent (I doubt it buy still worth a go).
CameraLabTester: IT Department: "We have here a simple patch that would make the 5300, heck even the D5000, have touch screen! It's just a simple code, really, like...."
Production & Marketing: "Stop Production! Stop Production! We have a newer model!"
So you think you could firmware update say your TV to 'enable' touchscreen? I think your grasp of technology may be lacking :D
Richt2000: Why can't American websites dare say "happy Christmas"?When its Holi people say happy Holi, when its Eid, people say Eid Mubarak, so we can't people say Happy Christmas?
As above since when has Christmas had anything to do with religion :D For the vast majority its a time of giving and receiving gifts, time off work, and spending it with loved ones .... or family :D
Merry (late) Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Stitzer23: This d750 makes the d610 look good!
Ah so models too close and price gap too big.
Serious Sam: Olivia is SERIOUSLY HOT!!! (I need to go out more.. I know)
Now on to the serious stuff. I hear you mention you shoot at ISO 400, isn't that affecting your DR since maximum DR for Xtrans sensor starts at ISO 800. Since you shoot RAW, I assume you use LR5. Most Fuji shooter can't get the best sharpness with LR5. Did you over come that problem?? Also you guys don't find the "Processed RAW" from Fuji a problem?
The controls on the X-T1 is excellent though. All the essential dials on the top ready for access. I think this is one of it key attraction.
Although not direct related to this shooting. It would be nice if you can mention the hunting problem of the AF system in AFC mode. This is actually the main reason stop me from upgrading from my X-E1.
Also Fuji need to price its product better. Currently X-T1 w XF 18-55mm goes for au$1,635.00 while I can get the brand new A7ii with 28-70 for au$1739 another reason stop me from upgrading..in fact thinking of switching.
By Daniel Lauring
"The focus performance of the A7 is not nearly as good as the X-T1."
Really? I thought the main weakness of the X-T1 was its poor focus tracking?
ogl: Fujifilm X100T and Sigma offer the best IQ....Another strange choice of voters...Really, no Ricoh GR...FZ1000....
The sigma that has no viewfinder only 9 focus points and struggles to gain focus in anything but good light. It sacrifices far too much to achieve its image quality.
Even taking consideration its weak points I voted LX100.
Its a lot of camera squeezed into a relatively compact body.
Cute Orangutan in rain wins it for me :)
One of those moments caught on camera that I can enjoy.
AmateurSnaps: I love the idea of a bridge camera but at this price what are the advantages of this camera over a Canon/Nikon/Sony with for example the Tamron 16-300mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD Macro?
Thank you for the replies. Very tempted to replace my old 350D which has done itself proud :)
Not looking at carrying bags of lenses (nor the investment) and this looks like a reasonable compromise for my needs.

That's a lot of money for a camera with poor performance and hopeless focusing :(
ABM Barry: I,m answering the shallow minded "Laslen." He quotes:
" you absolutely do not need to spend $1,700 on a camera to take pictures of your children. A smaller, cheaper camera will work just as well"
That depends on your family values, .... Obviously, Children are not worthy enough in your small self-centered mind!
Abm Barry that's a stupid thing to say as laslen's post was perfectly reasonable. Your post was just ignorant and insulting.
InTheMist: So, are there any features for grownups?
Curious, but what would you consider a ''grown up' feature from a consumer level printer?
gaston la touche: Photographers use the camera that suites your needs!Do not complain that camera A can do this and B can do that use the one that suits your purpose.Nikon 1 systems have many unique features as we all know,it is the only camera that could shot a golfers swing at 10,15,or 20 fpssilently,the clattering SLR'S used at the Open golf sounded primitive bycomparison.Naturally if I were making a facsimile of an old master painting my choice would be a multi shot Hassleblad,great camera but not very good on the beach!
Its way over priced for a 1" sensor camera.Its a camera with relatively poor image quality which regardless of needs would be an issue.
Full resolution stills while recording is nice although the FZ1000 has 8MP stills from its 4k recordings. I think this would have been the better option. Welcome to 2014 :)
Taking its strong points it becomes a very niche product.
PenGun: Another idiotic review. If you morons could not get sharp pictures because auto focus was off, find someone who can work a camera.
No one who needs 36 MP cares about the grip, or even what it looks like.
Another puff piece.
"No one who needs 36 MP cares about the grip, or even what it looks like."
Really? You think all the Nikon D800 users walk around with their cameras permanently mounted on a tripod?
