After that I want one!
I see tonnes of people walking around with mirrorless and DSLR's these days. I wasn't old enough to notice this sort of thing in the 80's or even 90's. But I'm still kind of surprised that targets weren't met.
Looks and sounds lovely. There are a lot of these X series cameras though and somehow I get the feeling Fuji isn't quite done yet.
God I love these comments!
'Retro tax', So true.
I wonder if this applies to reading forum comments...
Give me two!
Who cares what kind of images it produces. Nice looking camera, that's all that matters.
Battery life, battery life, BATTERY LIFE!
NickR: $16 a roll?150 rolls or a $2400 DSLR, which would you rather have?
Plus the initial cost of the film.
Mike Sivcevic: Adobe is screwing Australian customers yet again. LR5 costs $149 on the US site and $186 on Australian site. Same product, same server, same credit card gateway, 25% difference.
They've constantly been screwing us up, most notably with the CS6 that is about twice the price here comparing to the US pricing. It is cheaper to board the plane, fly from Australia to USA, buy a boxed copy in store and fly back.
Greedy corporate morons!
Australians get ripped off because they are prepared to pay more (because wages and salaries are generally higher). It's all about demand, not the cost of shipping the product or exchange rates etc. The proof is when you purchase digital content online where there are no transportation fees yet the Australian price is much higher.
To me it's simple really. Once you come to terms with the fact that a camera interprets light, rather than accurately representing it perfectly, you'll be liberated from so many restraints.
vFunct: Far too many moronic non-professional photographers that think they are in the same league as professional photographers.
No, you're not as good as a professional photographer because you are using a consumer dSLR. Any editor can tell who is using high-end equipment and who isn't, in addition to be being able to spot artistic talent suitable for their media brand.
The editor defines who is pro. Not you.
I love reading utterly ridiculous comments like those from vFunct. Told with such conviction! Pretty myopic point of view though. A pro is anyone who makes money from doing what they do, not just your 1DX/D4 owners. Anyone who thinks otherwise obviously hasn't been inspired by what some creatives have been doing lately. Also, gear that is regarded as mid-level/semi-pro/whatever today is more 'professional' in terms of technical capabilities than the professional gear used years ago. What does that say about professionals back then? Maybe they weren't 'pro' all along...
Guessing the Coolpix A viewfinder costs more to manufacture than one of either the sensor or the lens. Interesting.
Winning shot looks like an oil painting. Not in a good way...
Valiant Thor: Proof that it's not about photographic excellence, it's about the message and the agenda.
Yep. And IMO the success of the shot can mainly be attributed to the drama that is already present in the scene.
Apewithacamera: I would buy this camera anyday over the D600! It is that good!
Thanks for your input.
