$400...with a lens. Amazing. I can't wait for the deep review.

I still don't get how they settle on such high MP counts for little devices. I am still waiting for a watch that is cooler than the old Timex data watch. Yeah, that one where you held it up to your computer screen to sync it.

In reply to:

Absolutic: these honestly look very poor. Looks like noise reduction is eating the details like there is no tomorrow on these, I assume all Jpegs. I will reserve my judgement til I see Raw files, but Panasonic once again proves that its jpeg engine truly sucks. Just check out Olympus OMD or Fuji XE1 jpegs for a change

I agree with Hamilton as well. That 12,800 shot is very impressive.

For me the test of a good system is what happens when you go indoors and this unit gets it done really well.

On Camera shipments continue to fall news story (136 comments in total)

I think the non-enthusiast market is sticking completely with their smart phones. They are willing to mash and smash away with whatever their Samsung/iPhone gives them and spank it up on Facebook.

At our last family reunion, out of 50 people, I was the only one using a DSLR and only one other person was shooting with a P&S. Everyone else...smart phone.

With few exceptions, their photography is breathtakingly bad - and none of them really care. The moment was captured...guddenough....

Makes me sad really.

gftphoto: I think I may have finally found my travel camera!

I have to say I was thinking the same thing. Was saving up for the X100s but this warrants a close look. Really looking forward to more reviews.

On Fujifilm X100S Review preview (470 comments in total)
In reply to:

David Hardaway: I just reviewed the sample images that Barney took with the original x100. Night and day difference. The x100 images are very good and with good color and detail. X100s is clearly not an award winning camera so why is the dpreview gold being awarded to a jpg snapshot camera that is grossly overpriced?

Ease off the throttle Davey-boy. Take a card to your favorite camera shop, shoot a bit at the counter and then take it home and play with the images. I was not optimistic either until i did this.

The camera is really beautiful, the AF changes fixed all the things I hated about the X100 and it take a great photo. Saving up for one as I write this.

I guess this will fit in perfectly for the insecure Facebook narcissist that can not get enough of her/himself.

Personally, my favorite books, movies and photos are the ones where the author, director, artist disappears...leaving the medium for us to enjoy.

In reply to:

Josh152: One things for sure, low end compact cameras are over. Nikon/Canon/et all had better take notice.

I think it will be when they manage to get rid of the dreadful slow slow shutter speeds in low light conditions. Take any of these cameras indoors and the hit/miss rate is unacceptable.

In reply to:

arhmatic: With camera phones getting so much better, there is little reason to get a point and shot. The latest camera phones from Sony Xperia are waterproofed. Not as good as this nikon, but it's work in progress I suspect. More and better will come.

Point and shot manage to stay afloat with this niche markets, but this markets are getting smaller and smaller. The only way to stay in business is getting much better with image quality. Lx7 is a benchmark IMO.

I really want to see a camera that can replace my P&S or even my DSLR for casual shooting. For outside, bright light they get the job done but once we go indoors, it is Russian Roulette.

HubertChen: Here is a very good Article about facts on Adobe Photoshop Cloud which is missing entirely in the discussions here: http://www.luminous-landscape.com/essays/adobe_cc.shtml. And for those who just want to rant there is a good cartoon and a link on a very dark satire on youtube.

I love that cartoon - thanks for sharing.
I wonder what would happen if you were working on something controversial or what if you ran into legal issues related to copyright/model release issues. Could big brother turn off the spigot until their legal sensibilities are satiated?

Henry M. Hertz: the great thing is.. john nack (manager at adobe) ask us on his blog.... us the CUSTOMERS, how adobe can handle their own mess.

how we think adobe could handle the "no subscription no file access" dilemma.

isn´t that a bad joke?

adobe has to ask us how to handle that.
because they have never thought about it before!!

what about thinking BEFORE you make such retarded decisions adobe???

LOL, yeah I was following a bit of that as well. First you show the turkey the axe, then you start a forum hoping to get turkey feedback on stuffing recipes.

Any time you try and hand-cuff users like this, you create a fertile garden for our hacker brethren. My guess is you will also see more users thinking 'hey, that Aperture program really gets most of what I need done'.

Bad move Adobe.

In reply to:

leecamera: To be honest this is a fantastic effort on a budget of zip.

It's interesting that Marc uses the GoPro as he'd be shooting video with each rather than a series of stills - which opens possibilities to editing motion within the Matrix effect.

I think the comments about motion artifacts may be confused with the "scratch" editing within the action. We've got some interesting forwards and backwards motion of the subject whilst the tracking motion continues in the same direction. This is the first time I've seen this and kudos to Marc for coming up with a variation on a well known effect.

And to the critics of the execution... please send us your examples - we'd love to see how much better your versions are...

I agree. Zero budget it aint but it is indeed seriously cool.
