On Fujifilm X100T (beta) real-world samples article (103 comments in total)

limlh: The grain on the ISO 6400 night scene is so natural and pleasing. Fujifilm knows what a photograph is all about.

Sorry but it seems you haven't seen the grain on x100. The X100s & T are a mess.

It seems for Fuji to do a Full Frame fixed 35mm lens rangefinder all they need is a body generally the size of a X-Pro1. Since Sony already makes a smaller RX1(smaller than x100), I think it is possible for Fuji to make a Full Frame 35mm x100 with a slightly bigger body the size of a x-Pro1. I think the only reason Fuji is not doing this is because such a camera will damage the hype/religion/sales of their other APS-C cameras. I don't think it is because they are worried the camera would get too big.

Photographers do not care about making videos 99% of the time. Fuji is for Photographers.
Please go buy another brand if you want video recording.

UnitedNations: X-Trans CMOS II Sensor really is a problem. The older Fuji cameras(x100, x-pro1, x-e1) are so much more mature in rendering. I'm guessing these are OOC JPEGS. Fuji really should do something about the inferior JPEG engine in the newer models. Waxy & just messy.

I think you are right. Unless Fuji improves the JPEG processing back to the level of the older cameras(x100, x-pro1, X-e1) with more mature rendering aesthetics, better DR, etc. then I really cannot see myself upgrading from my x100 & X-e1 in the future & spending more money on another Fuji camera. The wait is getting longer & longer, & my last hope is now on the X-pro2...

Lab D: Look what Samsung did to Sony and others in the smartphone and TV sectors.
Now they have their eye on APS-C ILCs.

@ Rooru S
You said : "Thanks to costs in South Korea vs. Japan. Japan is one of the most expensive countries in the world."

Thanks for your comment which has no relation to REALITY.
According to IMF, World Bank, & CIA records the GDP of Japan & South Korea are around $36,315 & $33,140 respectively.
There is very little difference in the standard of living or income between Japan & South Korea.

Samsung's rise has nothing to do with South Korea being cheap & Japan being expensive. So please go spread your lies somewhere else. You are boring.

In reply to:

Just a Photographer: Samsung might have had the biggest stand at Photokina, it was also the most empty stand. Next to the fact that the NX1 didn't focus when I tried it. Might be due to the fact that the touch screen can't be turned off, I don't know. It didn't work for me at least.

Samsung seems to be a gadget company, not a camera company. Its just a thing they do too.

Maybe Nikon, Canon, & Sony employees & fanboys secretly came to check out the NX1 & messed up the settings on purpose & left quietly... happens all the time. Thus you may have had problems with the camera...

yonsarh: Proud to be Made In Korea products.

Samsung is a multinational corporation. Just see their presentations in the last several years. More diverse than Apple. You see Indians, Germans, Americans, Koreans, British, etc. presenting the new Samsung products in English using their own unique accents. Little bit harder to understand than Apple presentations, but still international & diverse... which is good... I think this is the strength of Samsung.

danieljcox: This camera looks huge along with it's lenses. The upside to the MFT GH4 and others in the MFT category is they are small, light weight and have hit a perfect compromise between size and image quality. I'm not interested in large cameras. If I was I would stick with my Nikons.

Daniel J. Cox

May look huge to you but it is actually a bit smaller. Maybe you should wait to see what the file is like with the new & interesting sensor... before you show your blind preference for Nikon...

In reply to:

tomtom50: "a global mirrorless market share that only falls behind Sony" Anyone know the source on this? What I've seen is Samsung has 50% or so in Korea and single digit market share everywhere else.

Relax & don't get so defensive. Many people also don't know that China is the biggest automobile maker in the world with the biggest market share worldwide(including domestic). Why would you doubt Samsung's ability to have global market share just behind Sony just because you don't see a lot of them in your small world. The world is a much bigger place than you might think. I've never seen a Chinese car where I live all my life...but...

Samuel Dilworth: For about a decade Samsung has talked about dethroning the big camera companies. That chat, which waxed and waned with chairman Lee Kun-hee’s mood, has never really amounted to much, but perhaps one day it will. This camera certainly makes that day seem more possible than it did yesterday.

Whether it’s a good camera is another question. I’m betting it’s full of odd little limitations and design flaws that the cognoscenti will moan about (did you ever try the TL500/EX1?). It also has that faux SLR look that I despise in non-SLRs but which seems to fly off the shelves (and in fairness, it’s hard to totally screw up the ergonomics if you’re copying an SLR shape that the big Japanese makers honed into usefulness over several decades).

But Samsung may lose interest when it realises it can’t compete with Sony without full-frame. Samsung isn’t the sentimental type, so if that happens all APS-C lenses would probably be terminated and quite possibly erased from photographic records. Poof!

@Samuel Dilworth
So if a camera design is not in a specific category which you think is correct & is instead in between or a hybrid then is it a "faux" design to you? You seem to be confident & happy in your own world...

Finally this time the exterior looks respectable enough... & the specs are impressive... Samsung is probably the most competitive & ambitious company in the world & if this camera signals them being even more serious about the camera market then this means trouble for the already established brands... because when Samsung decides to go head on into a certain product category their aim is always for the first place. And this can only be good news for all of us because the established brands will have to work harder from now on, & deliver better products at a faster Samsung pace, & at a lower price point. Thank you Samsung. Maybe in two years time I may be to sell my Fuji x system & go with Samsung...

On Fujifilm X100T Overview preview (572 comments in total)
In reply to:

atone2: Totally uninteresting before Fujifilm get rid of the ridiculous x-trans filter array. One must be blind not to see the awful rendering of x-trans rawfiles, especially in Lightroom. My original X100 still has much better IQ than the newer models. Money saved, wooha! :-)

So true. Go buy the x-pro1, x-e1, x100 when you still can. The newer Fujis like X100s, x-e2, x-t1 are all terrible when compared to the earlier Fujis. If x100t image engine is the same as x100s, then there is no use buying it. Still waiting for a real upgrade from my x100 & x-e1.

In reply to:

TangoMan: Will it smudge the skin and make it look orange, when shooting jpeg at 6400 ISO? That is the question... I hope the public outcry was heard from their offices.

I tried also to voice my opinion about inferior JPEG(x100s) engine performance when compared to the original x100, but was immediately attacked by x100s fanboys & couldn't say anything more. The fanboys were so fearful & angry of me talking about the INFERIOR JPEG performance of the x100s(extremely limited DR & waxy look). Thus, despite all these improvements in the x100t, I will still not be buying it because it uses the same sensor & the same terrible JPEG engine as the x100s. I am very happy with my original x100 which produces JPEGS on par with my X-e1.(X-e1, X-pro1, x100 share the same JPEG engine. But X100s, x-e2, x-t1 are different & are inferior to Fuji's earlier models.) Go buy the earlier models when you can...

jon404: Naive of me, but does the price include a lens?

And, can't tell from the photo, but isn't it too big to fit in a man's workshirt pocket? A la XZ-1, RX100, GR, etc...

It has better picture quality than the picolo cameras you mentioned. This camera is not for poor amateurs like you.

Finally. I will buy one soon.

Impressive. But are these OOC JPEG or RAW converted?

So you should only get this Camera if you intend to shoot at or above 6400 iso... since below that is no different from other cameras like the A7r... Thank you DPR...

What is Reddit? Some people are not familiar with it so some explanation in the article would have been nice...
