SteveY80: I'm surprised that the EVF has been downgraded compared with the NEX 6...

I guess it's probably the same 1.4mp model that's in the RX10, and by all accounts there's nothing wrong with that, but I'd have thought that they'd be showing off their best technology in this camera.

They say refresh rate is MUCH higher and much easier to see the moving object. This is the FAST camera, I think.

OK, no sample photos. I really want to see how much IQ is actually improved, although I hate the design. I believe that the current trend is smaller and more stealth cameras. This camera is totally opposite direction.

mpgxsvcd: This camera looks like it is trying to be different for the sake of being different not for the sake of being better.

There is probably not much innovation inside, so the outside has to be like this...

In reply to:

raztec: The more I read about what Panasonic, Fuji, Olympus, Sony and Pentax are doing, the more I dislike CaNikon with their incredible greed and pretentiousness and lack of innovation.

These two companies are riding on their name only and either charging ridiculous amounts of money for their high end products or putting out consumer oriented crap.

I can't wait to sell all my Nikon gear and invest completely in another system.

I dislike Canon because they intentionally remove the function from their "non-pro" cameras to sell MUCH more expensive "Professional" cameras. The lack of the innovation is not from the technical limitations, obviously.

This camera will boost the Speed Booster sales.

In reply to:

Jogger: Although there is a lot of hype on this forum for this camera, the fact is that m43 is a non-player in the cine market. Others such as Sony and Canon have long released dedicated S35 and FF cine cameras (C100, FS700, F55, F65, etc). This market is dominated by S35 cameras. Whereas, the only m43 cine camera, the Pana AG100 never took off. The m43 mount BMP is even more of a compromise, and after the hype, its fading away.

So the reason you dont see these specs on Sony/Canons is that they dont need to... they are already catering to this market, but, you wont see the F55, F5, etc mentioned on here.

I don't know where you got this idea....

On Tamrac launches rugged-looking photo messenger bags article (106 comments in total)
In reply to:

ThePhilips: DPR, can you make an article about bags for mirrorless cams?

Most camera bags I could find fall into two categories:

- Too large for the smaller package (esp lens pockets are way oversized even for Oly 1.8/45). (A.K.A. DSLR bags.)

- Fit camera+lens well, but have little/no room for extra lenses, not even the pancakes. (A.K.A. P&S/video cam bags.)

And too heavy. Cameras are lighter and lighter, but the bag is heavier and heavier these days.

I liked Tamrac bag until I moved to stealth bag. This must be a good bag and more stealth than the other Tamrac, although I don't like the logo on the lid and it still looks like a camera bag.

Kurt_K: Stellar optics, no doubt, but man are these Touit lenses ugly.

The other 2 Touit lenses were not really stellar...

In reply to:

Lardinio: I'm stuck (happily!) with big investment in Nikon glass and system. If I'm going to buy a Fuji it's because I want a second, small, cheaper system with just a couple of lenses. As facinating as the X-T1 is, it doesn't fit my requirements at that cost. May be I'll buy one used in a couple of years when it'll be down at £500.

Buyer's remorse?

In reply to:

showmeyourpics: I cannot believe all the negativity in most of these posts. All the new digital cameras are miracles of engineering with performance and function sets that most photographers will never fully learn and use (the glass is 90% full). The X-T1, together with the E-M1, clearly shows where the real progress is today: strong, smaller, lighter, weather-resistant bodies with EVF's that are already excellent and in a short time will surpass optical viewfinders in every application. I am a seasoned photographer who began with manual film rangefinders and light meters. Photo gear is the tool that allows me to transform my vision into fine-art quality prints. My main system is a pro-level APS-C but even with my Nikon P7800 I regularly take home publication-quality pictures of snow and ice in temperatures near 0dF and snowstorms. I am always thrilled of what my cameras can do and marvel at the advancements that every new generation brings forth. Make no mistake, this camera is a true jewel.

The negativity comes from the lack of money to buy this camera.

Nigel Ward 2: Strange to think that it took Nikon 4 years to design the DF camera and come up with major design problems (I can't easily adjust the aperture wheel when the strap was on)..and Fuji have appeared to have actually listened to what photographers want...and at half the price!

My DF is going back...hello X-T1

And PASM.

The ONLT thing that I don't like about this camera is: FUJIFIILM LOGO. It makes overall camera look somewhat cheap and strange... It should be a bit larger or just to be removed. Many people will use gaffer tape, anyway.

I'm sure that many users of EM1 and A7 will try this camera. I'm looking forward to seeing the comparison from "real" users. Looks very promising.

On Pictures emerge showing widely-leaked Fujfilm 'X-T1' article (373 comments in total)
In reply to:

kadardr: That is MILC identity crisis when they want to look like SLRs of the eighties, and we say how nice and how new. It seems SLR-look sells well. When a MILC looks like a DSLR, it is less than a DSLR.
If a MILC wants to be more than a DSLR, it needs to have
a big tilting EVF with very high refresh rate, and
an articulated LCD screen,
nevertheless a touch-screen.
To keep up with smartphones the screen should be at least 4".
Pocketability is a myth, and smartphones will always be better in pockets. AF speed still remains an issue.

High resolution big EVF may require SLR shape.

Dpreview re-review the first NEX cameras after firmware update and the did get much higher score.
