topstuff: Whats this about Americans not liking small cameras?
It is bizarre. Do Americans think that large = better?
Makes no sense. No sense at all.
I hope Canon isn't operating under the assumption that they need to keep cameras big for the American market.Big sensors in compact bodies is the future.
A proper compact FF from Canon would be sell like crazy. It would be THE compact camera to have. Not some little EVF only camera with a silly new lens mount that's aimed at enthusiasts like the A7/r. A real shooter- a rugged, sealed little compact FF with OVF, the 6d AF & sensor, focus peaking & split focusing for manual lens users, and the big kicker- in-body stabilization. Ibis would be really beneficial since the body is smaller & lighter, and it wouldn't force their hand to put it in dslr's. People from all camps have been demanding one for years, especially after the Leica m9 came out and showed us how small a FF can be.
photog4u: I’m not interested in anything these four talking heads have to say. IMO they should be fired immediately and replaced with new blood. And if I was on the Nikon board I’d be recruiting their replacements from Sony, Olympus, Fuji and Sigma.
"Because Canon M"
C'Mon Fuji, Lets get those lenses finished and get on the FF. Can't let Sony have all that mirrorless FF money.
*great interview btw.
gerard boulanger: I am surprised the "cons" in the conclusion does not mention the shutter noise. The A7r is even noisier than the A7.I guess pro won't like the noisy shutter?
Loud shutter should definitely be a con a 'pro' level camera (if that's what this is)
TakePictures: Looks great, as we have come to know from Fuji. For me, however, AF speed is going to be the decisive factor.
Yabokkie's posts are about as useful as tits on a boar. This is a guy who says all zeiss(& Fuji) lenses are garbage lol. Infact the only positive thing I've ever heard him say about anything is those silly canon dual-pixels. Everything else gets the yabokkie mumbo-jumbo hammer of disapproval!I'd bet my car that he spends more time talking about cameras on the forum than actually using one, and has absolutely no first hand experience with anything he criticizes.
locke_fc: Am I reading this right? The photographer gets a measly 30% while 500px pockets the remaining 70%???
I'm guessing not much work at all. Or more specifically- the same amount of work that they do now- post up a 'buy this photo' button under the image. I like 50px, but they're search function, tagging & catagories are severely lacking. And that's a big deal if your trying to sell your photos.
They'll make a lot of money. Not so much for the photographer.
That's the lamest auto-response ever. Lol @ Nikon.
That being said- wouldn't sending in your camera for repair and getting back a new updated model be a good thing? I'd be stoked. Who has a problem with this?
carlgt1: I don't quite see the point in lugging around such a beast and it's not full-frame?
The camera is reported to be smaller than the xe-2 (plus hump). If you consider that 'a beast'.. you've got to be the weakest human in exsistance.
unravel: I don't really get the knock against ergonomics on the A7, it seems to do everything you'd want it to given two dials and an exposure compensation wheel. Setting camera in manual mode and allowing auto iso (WITH exp. comp STILL working, compared to many other cameras where exp comp stops in this scenario), allows to overcome any kind of 1/60th issue.
Overall this did seem overly negative, and while the camera has short comings, those wanting a FF sensor in a tiny package can hopefully look past JPEGs and other minor annoyances rather than flaws. Only real flaws i see this camera have are the start up times and shutter sound, which is fine really but expectation of being quiet comes with mirrorless.
Also about "expensive" native primes that are "slow," first of all they are both weathersealed and amazing wide open. Compare them to fuji primes, which aren't cheap (and not weather sealed OR FF). Just seems like there's some bias here, i've shot with FF DSLR and Fuji, and i love my A7
"Only real flaws i see this camera have are the start up times and shutter sound"
Personally I thought AF accuracy was the biggest flaw. Only about 4 of my 10 shots were in proper focus(and that was in good lighting). Shooting moving subjects in low light would be a nightmare.
Other serious flaws:- the lens mount won't allow f1.4 lenses- the af assist light is beyond worthless- the camera performs better without it- wtf is that?!- low light af is no beuno.
That being said, I actually rather liked the camera. Unfortunately Sony's choice of the FE mount instead of the Alpha mount was something I couldn't look past. I would never buy into a system with a lens mount that restricts native lenses to f1.8. Now If I wanted a FF camera for using other brand manual focus lenses, I would strongly consider the sony A7/A7r
Markol: Reading all the cons one has to wonder why nigh every damn camera reviewed here (bar the cheapest ones) gets an award. Is there so much pressure on the staff by the owner or do they really think every camera should get an award as long as it does something good?To me it's just a marketing tool for customers who are naive enough to think that dpr would reserve "awards" for outstanding cameras, as the term implies, not 95% of all tested DSLR and mirrorless cameras.
That's the issue with being owned by the largest e-tailer in America. Giving a camera a harsh, honest review will cut sales, taking money out of your owners pocket. If amazon sells the camera- it's gonna get a passing grade from DPR. The better selling it is, the less likely it will be taken to task.
jtan163: The beginning of the end for DSLRs.
I think Marike6 may be yabookie's wife...
nathondetroit: If you build fast primes, they will come...
Because the 56mm f1.2 isn't fast enough for you?Or the 23mm f1.4, or the 35mm f1.4?
ryansholl: There's not a whole lot to go from in the photo, but it looks to me like the df and the a7r had a fuji lovechild
There's plenty of other photos of it out there...
bluevellet: Am I the only one a bit disappointed the hump is probably housing a plain (but big) EVF and not the hybrid OVF/EVF that made the X-Pro1 and the X100 so special?
EVF: 2.36 million OLED, 0.005s lag, x77 magnification.
*Would've prefered a hybrid ovf/evf personally, but this evf seems to be a boss.
It's Fuji's birthday- HAPPY BIRTHDAY FUJI!!!
*and yes, the camera looks awesome!
Cane: The fact that you need a grip in the first place shows the design fail of this style of camera. The past isn't always as great as old people remember it. Did Fuji just realize hands aren't rectangles?
Camera doesn't look bigger to me...
Still no long prime? Smh. 90/2 would be nice...
Nice price. But only 7 aperture blades? Hmmm....
The 16-50 f2 is only 3.8 inches long!?!?! Woah.
A Nikon having focus accuracy issues- big suprise lol.
