fotofantom: No viewfinder? No deal.
Ditto. A dollar short and a day late.
Grumpyrocker: I hope X-E2 isn't going to be left out on these firmware updates. It would be a shame if Fuji turned its back on customers who chose a different form factor for its latest camera.
Ditto, I'm sticking with the X-E2 because of form factor but would really like a couple of the things in the FW update. It concerns me that Fuji did not also announce for the X-E2 since I can't see any reason not to if they are going to make the features available for that camera. OTOH, the update for the X-E2 would be a different beast since it presumably would include remote control via Fuji's phone app....
What's the color gamut of the display?
Yeah, "restore confidence" until the next denial of a major problem. Nikon should ask Fujifilm how to gain customer support.
Still waiting for the ability to import only the jpegs from raw+JPEG shoots. Continuing fail from Apple.
Say what? Plug iPhone into charging cable, plug other end of charging cable into computer, on computer navigate to phone's DCIM folder, copy files. Free.
Always loved my RX100, EVF makes this a no brainer, prefer the 24-70 FL to a longer zoom anyway.... I'm in.
Blechh, tarting up cell phone snaps. As if there wasn't already enough drek on the internet
What is this doing on DPR, has nothing to do with photography. Waste of bandwidth.
xMichaelx: Even Leica can't make an add-on viewfinder that doesn't look like a ridiculous afterthought.
@Kinematic, you forgot to mention they also double the price after silkscreening the new logo.
If this is as clunky to use as the tablet version of Photoshop, I will pass, thank you.
facedodge: These are all great tips if you want to be like William Klein... I think the real lesson of William Klein is to not try and be William Klein. I think Eric missed this point.
Number three is "go against the grain". I don't think William cared which way the grain went. He went his way and that was that. Following Eric's advise on to go against the grain precludes needing to know which way is with and which way is against.
Find your vision and have the courage to develop it regardless of direction of grain. William Klein did so and we can too.
Hey man, I happen to like my tired cliches!
Hmmm. Sounds like DRM to me. Your lens will only work while connected to the internet.... Oh, and you don't actually own the lens, you only have a license to use it....
BJN: The question is how consistent the color and tonality are across the large display. I tried and returned a 30" Dell display that has wide gamut but that had very poor consistency across the display. You can't do accurate work if only a portion of your display is showing accurate colors.
I'm guessing that at $1600 that the hood and calibration package are extra.
Yeah, that's the real question. Both color and luminance are wretchedly incosistent on my 30" Dell. I'll wait to see what the real world has to say about this one before getting excited.
Hassy lost me at the Lunar....
Pity that no one uses a digital camera long enough for brassing to occur any more....
Damn, I obviously am not buying new cameras fast enough!
Isn't the G series sort of old tech by now?
Give us automatic troll filtering!
Timbukto: IMO with the QA/QC problems of the D800 and looking at these studio shots...unless there was a *vast* improvement made in ACR from the D600 to the D800...the D800 is giving you larger file sizes without an increase in detail. Look at all the feathery and fine detail bits of the studio shot...the D600 is showing more *true* detail. That or someone had a duff 85mm 1.8 on the D800. Looking at these shots I would never buy the D800 over the D600 and suffer the extra file bloat if I'm not getting more true detail. I think 24MP which Sony uses for their new flagship might be the sweet spot for classical Bayer AA filter type cameras? D600 really looks killer here...
I have not played with the DPR samples yet, but I downloaded the still lifes at Imaging Resourse, uprezzed each one to the standard 360 dpi 17x25" I send to the printer, and the D800 clearly resolved more fine detail as you could see in the uprezzed files. Moreover, you can see it in the print, if you are up close. That said, it's not earth shattering. YMMV.
