On Palm-sized: Hands-on with new Fujifilm X-T10 article (91 comments in total)

"mechanical remote releases are a good deal cheaper than electronic ones (and a lot of photographers already have at lease one at the bottom of a camera bag). "
Really? The only reason I have one (on a shelf) is I bought it in 1965, and I'm nostalgic sometimes. I have no intention of using it again.

HowaboutRAW: photomad:

Um, what's so great about the A7 except that it's smaller than this Canon?

It has washed out colour in raw, and a very very audible mechanical shutter. And with its 24MPs, it has about the high ISO performance of this 50MP Canon. It's good for video though.

And I like using EVFs in lowlight shooting, but the A7S is better for that than the A7.

" It's been admitted that Sony gets rid of colour to get the compression." By you?
You just pulled that out of your gass --remove the 'g' HaW.

It takes a tag-team to handle this guy...

Miki Nemeth: I love Olympus lenses. I was on the point of buying a OM-D E-M1 or PEN E-P5 in Dec 2013, when suddenly Sony announced A7 for the same price. Having a full-frame camera was too tempting. Later I bought a number of Olympus OM lenses for my A7. Now I have an A5100, and my favorite lenses on it are the PEN-F 38mm/f1.8 and 150mm/f4.
Why I am writing it here? I love (old) Olympus lenses, they work superbly not only on M43 cameras but on Sony E as well as Fuji X cameras, too.

Not what I meant, HaW --as I'm sure you know :)

"The A7 sure has a loud mechanical shutter in comparison to the EM-1."
Keeping both in the bag is quieter still.

46mm filter-thread matches my Miranda-Soligor 50/1.9 , and I still have 5 filters for that...

In reply to:

Eric Hensel: Interesting review. The reviewer keeps talking about decent sharpness, while posting gallery shots that are sharp as hell.

It does seem odd --but this is a known thing with that lens, AFAIK. It's not a huge thing, or dealbreaker --I use it a lot, and love the sharpness.

I own the original 30, and use it on a Nex 5n, Sharpest lens I own, and a perfect "normal" for me.
Misses focus from time to time...

HowaboutRAW: Good for Sony, now reconsider compressed raws in general.

There are always tradeoffs --I know people who fire off a lot of bursts and appreciate greater speed.

" But Sony should start by offering the option of full 14 bit raws, from say the A7SII."
Most would agree with this, and I would be surprised if they didn't, given that it's a flagged issue on all the review sites. Possibly not something they could include in a firmware revision...but we shall see.

In reply to:

Roland Karlsson: No one here knows what the lens can or cannot do. Almost no one have seen that it is Leica distance coupled, so you can use the range finder. Still, lots of opinions. Even compare it to a coke bottle bottom. Interesting.

The effect isn't remotely limited to DPR --it's a WWW-wide phenomenon.

No, I don't believe that, HaW.

I wish you well, mgrum :)
You'd have to set him (us) up with blind testing.
You will get nowhere with Mr. Raw.

m3: Wow, what an original idea!
About as 'original' as the Nikon camera bag I had thirty years ago with included bayonet mounts affixed to the inner base.
Ah well, if you're cheeky enough to ask for 12,000 CAD to revive an idea which in its latest form is a simple DIY setup and people are dumb enough to fall for it, I suppose that's the way it is ...

Just for a little perspective --all products can be DIY --if that's the way you roll. Paying others to make clever things you have no time to make yourself, is called commerce :)

"I checked on my 10bit monitor, it's slight but there still."
I have a good consumer grade monitor (not as good as yours) and I see no differences worth noting.

We don't see in 360 degrees --so we have no point of reference for these clips.
