Couscousdelight: I'm not very impressed with the XT1's sensor performances :http://uppix.net/Ir2rfL.jpgThere is less noise, but details are blurred, the Fuji is the only camera where you can't read the paint tube's label. and what append to red & purple tones ?
The tube is in the uper left corner of the studio scene.The sharpness in the center is a lot better than in the corners.
The reason for that, of course, is not the camera but the lens.
rsf3127: Is this Fuji camera twice as good as the Sony a6000 to justify that price? Almost the same as a FF body...eeek.
Is the Nikon D4s 5 times as good as the X-T1 and 10 times as good as the a6000 to justify that price?
TheDreamingWatchman: Cameras have only a small hump at the back, but a big one at the front.And there's a good reason for that. The reason is our hand.
But this one has the big hump on the back.
The hump has to be at the front, because your fingers can bend and can grab it.The heel of hand cannot bend; therefore a camera needs to have a flat surface at the back.It's as simple as that.
Why do small cameras have no humps?Why do small cameras not have big lenses?Because they are meant to be small!

grock: I used to think the comments on indie music blogs were the worst, but photography websites are really catching up. So much freaking jealousy and pettiness. So many people here can't stand it if someone is successful if they have what are deemed to be less than perfect technical skills with a camera, or if their composition seems amateurish or non-groundbreaking. Photography exists so that people can look at and enjoy photographs. Guess what? If someone enjoys looking at a photo you took, you succeeded. Nothing else--the brand and cost of your camera, the artistic merit, the people paying for the photo, the post-processing, the lack of preparation, etc-- matters.
@vFunct:Congratulation! This may well be the stupidest posting of the months.
newe: What happened to this company? Only distributing betas?
That's a rather stupid remark.There always has been a beta of Lightroom before the final version was released.
HawaiiVolcanoes: Everyone hates Adobe. Adobe is a company that needs to go away.
Actually, I quite like Adobe.I don't like the CC-licensing for Photoshop, but I like Lightroom a lot.Lightroom is a very fine piece of software. Not perfect, not without quirks, but still very good.I hope Lightroom flourishes and there are a lot of new versions with new features yet to come.
nofumble: Supersize your sensor please
@ tkbslc:That's one way to look at it.But as we all know: Size matters.And comparing sizes (=area), APS-C is 60% larger than m43.And FF is nearly 4 times larger.
skb1957: Thanks a lot dear Erez Marom. Through your sincere & sheer hard work, you have shown the World, how GOD looks like. It is one of the Almighty's Avatar. Your workflow on the project "Shooting Goðafoss" was a blessing in disguise for Photographers like me, who always look for creativity. Thanks once again...
If that were true the Tsunami in 2004 killing over 200.000 people also was God's avatar.
AngryCorgi: Really wish Fuji would go back to bayer filters on their sensors. At the very least offer ONE interchangeable bayer option for its really sweet X system. The IQ of RAW files with this idiotic xtrans filter still is way behind bayer-filtered 16MP sensors. Cameralabs.com illustrates this very well with their X-M1 review and resolution results. The EP-5 and GF6 even blow it away in JPEG and RAW. Please, Fuji, see the light and bring us a "B" camera that uses your "X" mount!!
@IchiroCameraGuy: This page compares JPEGs.If you compare JPEGs you compare the processing (e.g. sharpening) done in camera. You do not compare the camera or the sensor.
Look at the noise comparison an you will see that the EOS-M does not stand a chance.
I have had a Canon 7D for years and I never knew how noisy and mushy my 7D is - until I got a X-E1.
David Hardaway: I had the X-E1 for a short while. Moved to EOS M. The X-Trans is the issue for this camera. All shots included above, especially the young lady outside look sick. Flat, unsharp, and no detail. I use 5DMIIs for paid work, but for family and vacation shots I would be very upset to come back from long vacation to see all my photos looking anything like those in the examples. Fuji should ditch the X-Trans and refund people their money or send replacement camera with Bayer sensor. The X100 with Bayer sensor was the best. They should have stuck with that. Anyone else, in my opinion, that believes that the images in the test look good for $1k camera is in denial.
The picture with the woman in the blue tracksuit was shot at ISO 2000!The other woman is ISO 6400!!Did you just miss these facts or are you in denial?
Pictures taken with any(!) Canon APS-C Camera at these ISO values look just pathetic compared to the X-Trans sensor.
Are you kidding? Or just trolling?
Cameralabs conclusion (comparing X-M1, E-P5 and GF6): "Regardless of the technicalities the X-M1's sensor comes out of this comparison a winner by a clear margin."
And comparing X-E1 and the EOS-M (same sensor size) they conclude: "This is a fairly emphatic win for the X-E1 over the EOS M."
Did you even read the review at Cameralabs???
hassannabeel: "Who has created the seven heavens one above another; you can see no fault in the creation of the Most Gracious. Then look again: "Can you see any rifts?"
Yeah, actually I can see several rifts in the rings of Saturn.
HowaboutRAW: At least on the English parts of the Carl Zeiss website, there's no information on Fuji X mount Zeiss lenses--even as an upcoming thing.
A search of the Zeiss website for the terms "Fuji X" provides no results.
1.) The blog is part of the official website.
2.) Dr. Michael Pollmann, Consumer Lenses Product and Program Manager says:"Since the introduction of Sony’s NEX-7 and Fujifilm’s X-Pro 1, it became obvious that CSC cameras required quality lenses. So we decided that the time was ripe to bring such lenses to the market."
"The new lenses will be available for Sony E-bayonet (Sony NEX cameras) and for Fujifilm X-bayonet (Fujifilm X cameras)."
These are two official statements from an official representative on the official site of Zeiss (that you could not find even when I gave you the correct link).
If you can't find any information on Zeiss lenses for Fuji it does not mean Fuji is lying.It means you do not know how to search:http://blogs.zeiss.com/photo/en/?p=2864
I have a 7D and no intention to by a FF.Why should I?I own several EF-S lenses and I do not want to ditch them.An APS-C sensor is better than a FF for wildlife photography.I need that extra reach.
With all the technical progress we can have APS-C sensor that produce good results in low light. (Not as good as FF, but still very good.)
I’m willing to wait for a 7D II for another half year – not much longer.If Canon plans to scare of the customers who have bought EF-S lenses I will move on and never look back.
Sam Carriere: At the risk of sounding perhaps a little bit churlish, I rather wish Fujifilm would get on with the production of their promised X-mount lenses before trying to turn my head with more new camera models.
There is a road map for the lenses, that was published a long time ago.As long a Fujifilm sticks to this time table I don't see any need to complain.The road map can be found here: http://www.fujifilm.com/products/digital_cameras/xf_lens/roadmap/
Wow, from Canada you can see the back side of the moon ;)
zinedi: Why OVF. EVF is a cheap fake of optical viewfinder. It cannot even far-off simulate analogue natural look and feeling of OVF - feeling of nature.EVF is harmful for human health - the eye was made by nature for natural analogue-fluent light. The flickering LED light is harmful - not only for eye.EVF is cheaply constructed to be able even simulate OVF. When there is 6000x4000pix/250Hz 32million colours viewfinder I shall see if it is comparable with OVF and harmless and maybe.. .EVF is and for long time still will be lagging after on-line reality - so it is difficult to do sport with this. And the picture not beeing fluent in panoraming e.g. is also rough and harmful for human health.I have 20 years old SLR with pentaprism OVF - still functional. Do you believe that these small electronic dummy viewfinders will work at least 5 years?
Thousands of photographers every year get poked in the eye by their EVF.Some even are attacked and stabbed to death - in their sleep.The Mayans prophezised the world will end on Dec. 21th because the EFV will destroy the world.That's how harmfull EVF are./irony off
John Koch: Didn't the storm tide subside after the peak on the night of October 29? The photo suggests that Battery Park was still under water on the night of October 31, when Baan is supposed to have shot the picture from a helicopter holding a Canon 1D X by hand and using a 24-70mm lens on full open aperture, 25,000 ISO, with the shutter at 1/40. Plausible?
How do people get assignments to fly over Manhattan two days after a catastrophe, when half the people have no power, then fly off to Haiti, where more than half never had it?
Well, other Dutchmen do some miraculous flying about too.
If you call somebody a liar you should have more than an uneducated guess.
