Anyone know of a site that discusses specifically the GPS parts of this camera and how to use it with software?
"The most fundamental problems of retrofitting a digital sensor into the film bay of an existing SLR include lack of battery space and the need to constantly open the camera to change ISO, White Balance or any other image setting. And that's assuming many modern photographers would be willing to live without a rear LCD to check their images on."
You have got to be f kidding me right? THE LACK of hyperactive interference might actually HELP the vest majority of you babies to actually get a picture instead of playing with your cameras.
Rewording it to make it the same but harder to understand.
God this guy... Jeez talk about Milking it.. Im so over this story dude get a bloody life..
Why the Hell would anyone want to use Canon EF glass anyway?
That is a MUCH better idea!
Thats a stupid bloody name.. what happens when 8k comes out will that be called Mega Ultra HD
Id be really curious to know what anyones take is on its malleability with a Fuji X-Pro1 X-Trans RAF file after conversion. Im assuming that their testing was done with the most popular cameras using the most popular sensor designs based on Beyer Pattern sensors.
Anyone out there with a copy of LR4.2 and an X-Pro1 who would volunteer a test and post their findings?
Well Im impressed. It holds its corner details very well. Edge detail is impressive, tonality is as good as the big-boys, low light is fantastic and I can honestly say that it probably eats film at this point, though Id like to see what its like in horribly high contrast situations. Id also love to see where its at in black and white. I love that they went with the Sonnar formula, that says they were thinking when they designed it. Test shooting that lens stopped down is a good idea because it shows the optics at their most flawed, and Im impressed at how it renders. Open up and for those of us who know the difference between one formulation and another we know roughly how it should behave. I must admit, im surprised at how little vignetting & bulge there is for a Sonnar. So again, Im impressed.If I had the money I would buy one. Its only a matter of time before everything is mirrorless and everything is full frame.
Peiasdf: That red Sigma girl in the last picture is cute.
Unless the RX1 sensor has special microlenses, SONY can just put a mount on the end of the Zeiss lens and sell it as NEX FF lens. Looks like it will only add 1cm deaph to the camera/lens.
Its a Sonnar.. its going to be hot shiit. That camera is aimed at a very particular kind of photographer. The Sonna formula is center perfect with a bulging bokeh and a slight vignette. Sony have matched this optic perfectly with this sensor. I cannot wait to see what this thing spits out.. I bet you it will give Leica 35 Summicron a good run for its money in the digital realm.
Bearsdenoboe: "‘So, if we introduce a full-size mount we would have to limit the amount [of compatible lenses].'"So be it. Please Fuji, do introduce a FF XP2, and we will happily enjoy making do with fewer, but superb, lenses. A 35mm FF prime , 60 macro, 80mm, 21mm, 10-24, 55 ?-200 would suit very nicely, thank you! It seems obvious that so many people are waiting for this, and would instantly give up thoughts of Leica. And – please Sort Out the colour smearing problem with Lightroom etc., that stops serious RAW users now from purchasing. This is a Must!
I think thats Lightroom's problem. Try Raw Photo Processor (RPP- the ugliest and most stonage GUI ive seen in a decade but the renders are vastly superior.
Great, looks like Fuji is committed. I hope that 21mm lens comes out sooner rather then later.
These videos made no sense to me at all. one at a time please.
Looks like Color Infrared!
Its a pity that it renders some red tones in the fuji RAF files radically off the mark and most cases nto even remotely the same color as the jpg files. Some of the reds Ive seen coming end up actually being black or grey..
Michael Ma: 730MB for the 4.1 update? I know 500MB of fluff when I see it.
419mb on my mac..
I feel sea-sick looking at that image.
meh.. I bought it for my Leica Lenses and so all that chattering business doesnt effect me. As for the paralax, I dont see what the problem is.
Id really banked on this machine to be the ace that I was hoping for, but for my needs as a vehicle for my Leica lenses, this camera is not going to cut it. My only real concern with it is that it doesn't give me any form of focus aid or confirmation when using manual lenses which could have been achieved by phase detection through the center of the screen alone which is the sharpest part of the lens and not a problem for anyone use to using a 35mm rangefinder anyway. Having to use an EVF makes the camera an SLR for all intents and purposes because you are effectively focussing through the lens. If Im going to do that id just go back to the NEX 7 regardless of the improved image quality of the X Pro-1 over it -its cheaper and smaller and its EVF is superior. Can anyone offer me an opinion which may help keep me on X Pro 1 track and convince me that this is the machine to buy?I've a big project coming up and the actual usability of a camera is as important as the picture quality.
Alejandro del Pielago: I´d like a comparison (Lab and RL): Fuji, Canon (5dII and 5dIII) and Nikon about IQ...
Why not get a comparison with a Koni-Omega Rapid and a Deardorf 810 whilst your at it.. otherwise Mr Pielago might get upset that you are biasing the review..
