On Fujifilm X-T10 First Impressions Review preview (369 comments in total)

Given this is orientated around shutter speed and aperture controls, rather than shooting modes, seems an ideal photo school type camera for genuine beginners learning the craft of photography, rather that upgraders from mobile phone and P&S

BarnET: Have to admit.
For a 50mp sensor the ISO performance is pretty impressive!

In line with the theory doesn't seem to corrolate

On What is equivalence and why should I care? article (2129 comments in total)
In reply to:

Elaka Farmor: Some people here seem to think that they can produce the same level of clean image (low noise) with a GH4 as with an A7R when shooting at iso100 with the FF camera. Not possible.

"Err.. Is that an argument at all? "
yes is so far that you said
"Some people here seem to think that they can produce the same level of clean image (low noise) with a GH4 as with an A7R when shooting at iso100 with the FF camera. Not possible"
my point is that equivalence says it is possible, if you have the latitude to crank up the exposure on your MFT rig and you don't on your FF set-up, I do concede that practically its not going to happen much due to the (non) availability of fractional F number lenses and low ISO MFT high res sensors, and compliant subjects.

If you have the latitude to adjust the exposure (ie. a faster lens) or can use a slower shutter speed say with image stabilisation, then the principals of equivalence make your statement untrue Elaka, of course the you can do the same tricks on FF as well which rather defeats my argument, but a slow Kit or an inexpensive telle Zoom on an A7R can be compensated performance wise by using a fast fixed focus prime on an Oly allied with Oly's effective image stabilisation to use a slower sutter speed as well, may be why so many OM owners are so happy with their gear

On Interview: Canon's Chuck Westfall on the new XC10 article (347 comments in total)

I have read all the comments, and it's over priced wrongly spec' d on firmware. however, I still think the concept, ergonomics and general layout is bang on, I still want one,I've had it with SLR and rangefinder look-a likes because the conservative American market won't buy anything else. throw the rule book away and build cameras that make sense with modern technology rather than the constraints of roll film from half a century ago, Bravo Canon! ( specs aside)

On Opinion: Why the Canon XC10 is a big deal article (810 comments in total)
In reply to:

nerd2: So this camera is a small-sensor bridge camera with rotational grip that can shoot video as well - I had on more than 10 years ago (which was called sony f707)

and then the industry settled back into making SLR clones because thats what consumer demanded a serious camera to look like, what the difference is now (possibly)
1 The Market is moving on
2 4K and the technology to support it
3 Its has Canon written on it

No disrespect to Sony, or Pana and its not as true now, its just Canon will be taken more seriously than Sony with something like this.

If someone is within 15ft they are likely getting in the way of the police officer trying to do their job.
DPReview should stick with reporting the facts and stay out of making editorial comments/conclusions.

Unless you are the one interacting with the police, ether bing questioned or arrested are you saying you should not be able to record that? not all laws are good laws and not all police are good police and even the ones that are, not all of the time, don't be naive about that DStudio just becusee you are an upstanding citizen doesn't mean you are immune from some injustice metered out by law enforcement .

In reply to:

Photoman: I think I will stick to my Minolta 28/2.8. A lot of distortion in this lens.

to keep the price and size of the lens down this is exactly the compromise to make, you can't dial in any more detail in software but you can correct distortion ( having said that it does lok quite heavy even distant horizon looks like it needs some correction to look flat)

On Fujifilm X100T Review preview (656 comments in total)

Almost perfect for what it is, the one thing I would like to see is a version with a really strong 1.4 lens with Sony's latest sensor, It lust laks that bit of background separation and rendering to get that pop you can get with a Leicia rig or Sony RX1

Direct link | Posted on Mar 27, 2015 at 04:08 UTC as 50th comment | 6 replies

Great news 28 looks nice as does the 90, the 35m 1.4 is too big for me, Would prefer if they bought over the compact and fast f2 from the RX1, which I think is the best compromise between being compact and fast. the Sony 7s just became a much better buying prospect

In reply to:

Kangaroo Court: Why does this video reek of Infomercial? Im sure none of it is a lie, this camera is perfectly capable of this shoot, but what I see is a photographer with skill being in very nice places with nice things to shoot. This could have been done with any Fuji or MFT or Samsung (or DSLR for that matter). Im just not seeing why using the A6k in particular was the "key" to these results.

Any help here? Did he just draw a name out of a hat and happened to choose Sony? Also, did I hear him say apsc is a good choice bc it gives a little more DOF??

Why do infomercials try to look like an impartial review?
you need to turn this on its head.

I don't see many comments just saying what a great article this is, nice to see it in use real world use rather than lab and just the testament of the reviewer. The The quality of the photography and video was great. please put up some stills.

On Opinion: The myth of the upgrade path article (1457 comments in total)
In reply to:

attomole: So what you need is two systems,
As a Travel and compact system camera go MFT with few preferred dedicated small lenses, it will always be a keeper for that situation
AND
Full frame DSLR or Sony A7 when IQ is critical and kit size no issue

Don't Bother with APSC its the worst of both worlds, don't bother with compact Zoom either. carry a small MFT rig or use your Phone as an EDC option.
Funds allowing of course :-)

@camley for an everyday cary yes, For travel I would like a system camera and lenses, I think MFT is easily the best for this.

@justin23 I agree but MFT does better because of the dedicated lens selection. Although the A6000 / Fuji X comes close you end up with quite a bulky set of lenses rivalling full frame. but nothing hovers up light like full frame camera and big system lenses, there just isn't the equivalent.

On Real-world test: Nikon D750 at the Museum of Flight article (281 comments in total)

I think that is a very useful demonstration of the sensitivity and dynamic range of modern full frame sensors, would be interesting to see what and near as equivalent uFT set up would do under the same circumstances (honestly not just trolling) based on my experience of ageing APSC Nikon, this is astonishing, but I am seriously thinking of jumping ship for (uFT Pana GX7 or OLY something ) and three decent compact primes, as I have had it with bulky DLSR gear
