  • Looks like Lightroom 5 is the way to go, but I have no idea how this collection/catalog thing works. As for Photoshop CS5 (the version I'm using), well, I have to live with the tiny icons... I'm ...
  • Hi everyone. I cannot use Photoshop on my hi-res screen because the icons are too damn small. I know CC has a scalable UI, but I don't want to work in clouds. So here's my question: Is there ANY ...
  • One major CAVEAT about this camera: no weather proofing will mean that it is not suitable for use in high humidity areas. Sony`s RX series have proven to be very sensistive to humidity (see...

  • Agreed. Electronics = throwables...

  • Angry Magpie... As I wrote, possibly 5% of models affected. I live in Thailand but the camera actually broke while I was living in Quebec. I had it repaired, and broke again. Had it repaired again...

  • mrtaufik... Just do a search online for RX100 (at least) corrosion problems, and one for warranty service. I know of at least 3 people (that's comparatively a lot) who had severe problems with the...

  • Sony has the worst record of service, worldwide. The RX series cameras are not weather-protected, and their circuits are extremely vulnerable to humidity. When the eklectronics fry, the service...

    Hi all. I am using my new Fujifilm XE-2 and the JPEGs are so good that I do not shoot raw anymore. I have Photoshop CS5 but on my hi-res screen, the User Interface is so small that it's killing my ...
  • I have just replaced my Nikon D7100 with a XE2. I am niow shooting JPEGs, and use PS to crop only. I come from years of using top-of-the-line Canon DSLRs and L lenses. In my career, I have never...

  • Just my two cents: one marvelous innovation is the weather sealing. That is, to me ,the crucial element that is missing in the RX series and the G7X. If the camera and its lens are really sealed,...

  • The only cameras to ever break down on me in 50 years of photography are Sonies. Nevermore.

    Two reasons: I like the rangefinder style. I moved away from DSLR because of their size and bulk. Seems to me that a rangefinder is more "square", fits better in a pocket. I don't like the ...
  • What I want, is to be able to shoot with the EVF (eye sensor or not), the LCD off, then, at the push of "Menu" or "Playback", get the LCD on and the EVF off. Seems to me that this is logical and ...
  • The XE-2: there are 4 choices: two with the LCD and 21 without the LCD. If you choose the NON LCD choices, no playback button will bring back the screen. Unless I am missing something, no button ...
  • Thank you for this precious info.
  • Hi all. Love my new XE-2. Question: Is it possible to use the EVF for shooting (without the LCD) and the LCD for menus and playback (without the EVF), but not together? I don`t see an option for ...
  • Created discussions New XE-2
    Coming from D7100, I've enjoyed my new old XE-2 yesterday and today. First impressions: excellent JPEGs, love the color. Very sharp lens, much sharper than my Sigma Nikon 17-70. Ergonomics ...
  • It's OK, it's just that I don't know how to easily post pics here... Well, looks like it's alot easier than before...
  • OK. Not very creative pics. Pixel peepers have a ton to criticize, That`s OK. I absolutely LOVE the XE-2. Feels like I`m doeing photography again. So much fun... Megapixels? Frankly my dear, I ...
  • Just read the manual, and personalized the FN buttons. Played around a bit in my room. I have not tested this camera before, but I got a good price - 700$ for 2 year warranty, Hoya filter, second ...
