  • Most English-speaking mirrorless users seem to come from the DSLR route, rather than new photographers. That means the DSLR/mirrorless debate represents a schism in the photographic 'religion'. Tho ...
  • ...when you have the patented NutPea Instant Photographic Smart-Ass sentence generator system. Begin the sentence with one (or more) of the following: 1. [camera with a sensor smaller than mine] is ...
  • It could be that Fuji is working on a bigger sensor... for the X30's eventual replacement. That would make more sense than having to sack its whole lens line for the existing X-Series cameras, or ...
  • I think the problem is the camera makers are reacting to the demands of the enthusiasts, because the manufacturers fear losing even more share of a declining market. The 'FB users are not ...
  • I read in one of the UK audio magazines a few years back that the hi-fi business (all of it; high-end, midi systems, the works) in the UK was a steady £120m business for years. The year the iPod ...
  • You've missed the point completely. If the only piece of audio equipment you've bought lately is a pair of Grados, that's like saying there's nothing wrong with the photographic world because you ...
  • Which is a critical concern for us, but a trivial one for many.  The whole FB thing is if an image doesn't happen, there will be another photo op along in a second. Thom Hogan's parallel with audio ...
  • When there is no alternative but to buy a thing, price and income are in lock-step. As soon as there is an alternative that 'obsoletes' the thing in the mind of the mainstream buyer, price and ...
  • Not at all. With so many things to grab our attention, convenience often trumps quality. Blu-ray is vastly superior to Netflix in terms of picture and sound, and yet I can't remember the last time ...
  • I've noticed exactly the same thing, especially with soccer moms corralling their brood around the streets of London's West End. There's usually a Canikon DSLR round one neck of the party, but ...
  • Yes, in some respects the cognitive processes of younger generations are different to their predecessors, to reflect their surroundings. That plasticity is inherent to the way we think. We don't ...
  • You have described a 'nuanced' argument that is significantly beyond the understanding or the interest of most real-world buyers of photographic equipment. Easy to parse numbers now act as a ...
  • You can make a chart say whatever you want it to if you play with it enough. The numbers, however, are incontrovertible: The total market for cameras (excluding cameraphones, but including ...
  • People already in the ILC pool are not the issue. Instead, the photographic industry is worried that those expected to be the next generation of ILC users are staying with the cameras in their ...
  • Meaningless product refresh for its own sake simply to stop churn in stores. Cameras like the X-A1 meant Fuji had a range of cameras to sell, so it got its own section in the online or B&M stores....

  • Although I use Fuji now, there are shortcomings to the system (especially currently in flash) which may make you regret the swap. But it sounds as if what you need is a better method of load ...
  • Yeah, I'm on the equal opportunities sub-committee of the impending revolution. Currently we are working toward creating a time-frame in which to select a team that will be given the task of ...
  • Yes, Fuji's flash system is very weak, but most of that kind of portraiture is best done with off-camera flash anyway, and that evens the score a lot. I do miss iTTL though.
  • That's not a bad image at all. Whether he's got a good eye or the photographer who loaned him the camera also basically set up the shot isn't clear, but at least he didn't completely mess it up, ...
  • We have become used to cameras having a painfully short life expectancy in digital, because in the first decade of the 21st Century digital photography was in its infancy and changes came thick ...
