shamhead: Also good of dpreview to have the balls to post this.
Well it's all about honesty which in turn retains readership which in turn... well, you don't need to be a genius to figure it out.
I now feel a little foolish for actually being impressed by this camera's announcement. Should have known better.
Ian Worthington: Will people please stop moaning that the sensor is not 6x4.5? The sensor is what it is. If you want a larger one go spend the extra money on something else.
For me this makes an interesting alternative to a 5D3 at about twice the price, though it clearly can't share my existing lenses, for the same reason I don't always want to shoot with my 7D: low light iso noise and resolution.
The proof of the pudding is going to be in the lens options and their quality though.
@s mcintosh sure but 645 refers to 6x4.5 cm which it is not.
It's more the misleading naming format, not that it's a smaller sensor size.
Just Ed: Rah, rah, "YES"Sony Seven "S"
Rah, rah "Look See"Sony makes me "ZZZZzzzzZZZZzzzz"
Quit your jibber jabber!
I want one. No joke.
Government intervention. Ha!
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.
