Rooru S: Hey dpreview, any chance to see high end cameras make it into the test? I mean, like the top top from both Canon and Nikon.

Bet you drive with all the AUTO mod con car driving gizmos on?

'Lens Modulation Optimizer', as previously seen on the X100S and X20

Why these models, they both have fixed lenses.

All makes sense now. What with the massive Niikon announcement just leaked.

koju: As an early owner of the X10 I feel left out when reading this, especially when I see all the out of focus pics from my recent trip to Greece. When is Fujifilm going to give us the benefit of their AF improvements for their other models?!!

Almost as if the issue varies or does not exist person to person?

Sonyshine: WOW!

This is impressive customer service from Fuji!

I would not have sold my X100 if this had been released earlier - shame - but still good to see manufacturer supporting an older product!

Sellers remorse eh?

I see, flog the S for a bit then once that dies down give all the original x100 owners as near to S performance as you can.

I like it - applied to my x100 and it works a charm.

Marty4650: Lets not go overboard with praise here.

Essentially, Fuji made a smart business decision by trying very hard to fix a defective product that their customers paid $1200 for. And they have done a good job of fixing that product.

All of these firmware fixes are genuinely appreciated by their customers, simply because very few companies today think that far forward. Once they have your money the transaction is considered complete. They usually feel they owe you nothing more.

We can commend Fuji for doing the right thing, but just remember it was their flawed product that made these firmware fixes necessary. These problems weren't caused by a tsunami or earthquake. They were caused by poor design and engineering.

This wasn't an act of generosity but a business necessity going forward. It's not shocking that one smart company would fix a defective product... the shocking thing is that so many other companies won't.

What are you on about?
Focus peeking has been there for ages!
They added Focus Peek Highlighting.

You have not actually looked at the Fuji site for the changes, have you?

It looks similar but that is all really...

nimrod1212: Give either of these a way to power-up externally and an app to remotely connect to something other than a mobile device and I'd buy one or three. The compactness, relatively low price and wireless transmission has numerous applications in wildlife photography, multiple camera video capture, scientific work etc etc.

Just like you do with a current smartphone camera?

ybizzle: Recently purchased a Nokia PV 808 for $250. Now here is a phone camera that has been compared to the likes of Canon 5D Mark III and Pentax 645D full frame and medium format DSLRs. If that doesn't scream image quality in your pocket, I don't know what does. Who knew a camera on a cell phone would out-resolve a full frame and although it did not match up to the 645D, it still held it's own.

645D vs 808

Would love to see that 808 photo is a dark church with lovely bokeh going on...

siberstorm27: Why would anyone want this over a Lumia 1020? DPReview has already tested the 808 Pureview vs RX100 and the Pureview is comparable on many instances. Not only will you need a specific Xperia phone, but its an unsightly attachment that requires its own battery to be charged, is connected via wifi, and will balloon the device to the size of something even bigger than the RX100 sans lens. Having to attach and reattach a camera module really defeats the point&shoot nature of smartphones or even the RX100. It's also gonna be very expensive. Just get a unibody and completely packed together and optimized slim phone like the Lumia 1020 with a 10mm body and 14-15mm hump and don't bother having to have two expensive Sony products tacked together. Sony was suppose to have a real competitor with the Honami, but this thing is turning into a joke.

Hello, the other small camera will still be there! This would reduce the need to take a large camera on travels, no?

In reply to:

rocklobster: Those daylight images (especially Liberty Is) have more noise and noise reduction smearing of detail than I remember for the PureView 808. Perhaps better at lower resolution but direct comparison to iPhone 5/Samsung S4 required before I would consider and then Windows OS maybe a negative.

Cheers

Got and 808 in the house (not mine) - it produces far better pictures than any of these examples.

For a camera on a phone, not bad. As a camera replacement, no chance.

Probably, buy who buys the overpriced official one anyway?

Because we would all hate if our Canon / Nikon / ANO cameras could connect without effort to every other device we own or want to converse with.
