deep7: That augers well for image quality. The reviews will be interesting. (Not that I would personally get an Android phone but many people get on with Android just fine.)

"Most people get on with Android."

Sheep.

On challenge What Do You Not Like About This Picture (9 comments in total)
In reply to:

T bird: This is a fantastic challenge but good luck with getting comments that are worthwhile as opposed to this photo is garbage or it makes me want to throw up. I am a total novice photographer (I've never taken a photo that couldn't be improved) but I'll participate anyhow as I like this challenge, it goes to the heart of the challenges, folks trying to improve. I am certain there will be those that will howl that only the experts should give their opinions, but I'm fine with that criticism. Thanks for being innovative.

Chill, man.

Enjoy taking photos.

Calvin Chann: Ridiculous. And I'm not talking about the price.

The issue is it's too big, too expensive, and too Leica.

All clear now?

Guidenet: Yeah, dump the typical DSLR for a Nikon DF or Fuji XPro2 et al. I can wear it with my Faux Giorgio Armani Hong Kong suit and a Bolex wrist watch and really impress the ladies. Hubba hubba! What you wear is more important than the photographs you make. Give me that retro look.

Moronic comment from Guidenet; there's a surprise.

greypixelz: lame sony lame

do better next time: _listen_ to yr customers!

Fuji made MAJOR improvements to cameras that were already very good.

Calling cameras like the Fuji X-E2 "unfinished" is patent nonsense.

Too bad Sony doesn't have the same philosophy of constant improvement through firmware.

Does the firmware make it look less ugly?

I totally agree, darngood.

User9362470513: Some of the best OOC jpegs on the market? A quick comparison with the Sigma Quattro Dp2 studio scene blows that nonsense out of the water.

And yet good photographers can produce stunning results from Fuji jpegs.

Maybe you're the bog standard component in the equation, boss.

Dr_Jon: Since ACR doesn't do a great job with X-Trans how about adding a page with a comparison of SilkyPix SP7, Capture One and Iridient to ACR? Otherwise the Raw results seem less reliable.

It is a very cool camera to use, although I'm not quite convinced by the AF. I trust some more information on lens-dependent AF performance will be added once final firmware is available?

My initial impression of Capture One Pro was -- WHOA! Interface looks like the space shuttle control panel!

I did a Lynda.com short course on using Capture One Pro and now everything's great.

One small change, moving the photos view to the right margin, removes much of the sense of clutter, for example.

Fujifilm 35mm f1.4 is a classic.

Of course if Fuji released a Mark II with faster AF and quiet focus mechanism I'd update, but only if the optics were as good/better.

skanter: Fixed LCD??? Have I read this wrong? If true, I would not go near it.

Yes, you've read it wrong.

Now go out and buy one.

arhmatic: All I need now, that I got the X-Pro2, is for Fujifilm to update the remote camera app. It's seriously buggy, awkwardly designed interface, continuously losing connectivity with the camera.

It would just be unfair to give the camera a low rating, just because of the frustrations to use it with the remote app...

I use my X-E2 (firmware v. 4) with my iPad Air 2 (iOS 9.2.1) and I find the Fuji app works flawlessly for controlling the camera, transferring jpegs to my iPad, etc.

PKDanny: Does Canon and Nikon allow Sigma firmware in Canon/Nikon camera dslr? Others not allow.

Fuji updates their X lenses -- all you need to do is connect the lens to a Fuji X camera.

Will B Milner: Looks like a great shooter, also it's some attractive engineering on display. I'm very happy with my Nikon crop cameras though, can't see many benefits over my D7200. Still it's a nice looking beast!

In your first post it's a "nice-looking beast," in your next it's a "pretty little thing."

Do make up your mind.

In reply to:

Alexdi: The film simulations are great. I've shot with all of those stocks and the samples are bringing me back. I wonder if ACR will have some way to emulate the profiles?

A lot of the appeal of this body is the combination of high-quality output, tactile build, the optical finder, and stellar AF lenses. As good as the A6300 is (and it is very good), it only has the first two. Canon's smaller DSLRs only have the last two. I think the X-Pro 2 is expensive, but that the cost is not totally unjustified for such a niche product.

To me, it's just a teaser for the X-T2. Can't wait.

@ Marksphoto

If no one knows what the original film is "supposed" to look like, then it's a moot point.

That day is almost upon us, apart from the odd trainspotter.

probert500: "Eviscerate" has a very strong negative connotation - misleading headline.

@fmian

The word is not used to mean to take apart something MECHANICAL.

Understand now?

@fmian

Lens rental also critiques lenses, no?

Yes.

So the title could be misconstrued, especially since 'eviscerate' doesn't mean to take apart mechanical objects.

Where are all the posts from the old bores that film is thriving again?

Don't worry, lads. It'll make a comeback yet!

First, you need to read more because you're clearly not educated. See? I've just eviscerated you. :)

Second, eviscerate is NOT used for mechanical objects.
