Boss of Sony: Why is this camera getting so much attention when it's basically only got an updated viewfinder? Why don't you just add an extra page to the X100s review?

Boss of Sony: "...I do not own a camera..."

That's a very telling comment ;)

I haven't used a Ricoh since the film days but the GR looks like a great camera- large sensor, low price (relatively speaking), good IQ. It should be a good purchase. I know very little about the Panasonic. Generally speaking, any camera you purchase these days is going to give you great results. You'll only see a difference if you're a pixel-peeper, make large prints or crop excessively.

newe: I thought the S6 was coming...what happened?

I'm not sure where you've heard this...or if you are being serious ;) but the S-camera's used Nikon lenses, the x-cams have their own = more money for fuji.

also if your name is "boss of sony" and you're making negative comments about another manufacturers cameras, then it's hard to view your opinions as entirely objective :D

If you're not interested in the camera that's fine, you're entitled to your opinion.

kadardr: A new market segment would be if Fujifilm put a 24Mp Sony sensor in it. Also the sensor could be tested by DxOMark, and could be used with ACR processing after raw shooting. I wonder how many would sell of which...

That's a fair point but you can always borrow or rent one and evaluate image quality for yourself if that's an option for you. Alternatively, download a few of the many RAW sample images and process them yourself and see if you like the output. I personally don't put a lot of weight behind DXO scores. I doubt a few points here or there make that much of a difference in the real world. That's only my opinion and realise others might think differently.

I'm pretty sure that fuji have sony sensors already...just a different colour filter ("x-trans") array.

Just another Canon shooter: There is low contrast and the strong flare in the video - is that for artistic purposes, or is it a "feature" of the SB?

I'm pretty sure the flare is an intentional aesthetic choice. Not sure about the contrast.

In reply to:

RedFox88: So much for that supposed build quality of Fuji EVIL cameras. So what do you get for their extreme cost? Clearly Dslrs are where to go for durable cameras.

Fuji x-t1 is WEATHERproof not WATERproof and never claimed to be anything else.
...the 10-24mm lens is neither.
Not sure where you get the "EVIL" from? Have you had a bad experience with Fuji?
Finally, this is a story taking care while shooting because it could have had a tragic ending.

Sports Shooter: where can you find his story??? I see no link above

Clicking on the images doesn't seem to work (on my browser anyway) but the photographer documented his accident in the Fuji slr/x-system forum
http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/54139785
this is probably where DPreview editors found the story.

On Rare Canon EF 1200mm f/5.6L USM goes on sale in UK article (218 comments in total)
In reply to:

RichRMA: Anyone looking at this would be advised (if high definition is their goal) to look into an alternative, custom apochromatic telescopes from Companies like AstroPhysics (U.S.) APM in Germany or TEC in Colorado. They'll provide better images (or at least as good) as the Canon for about 1/8 to 1/4 of the price.
But it's likely a well-heeled collector will grab up the Canon.

but you would need an adapter and you won't have autofocus.
I don't know who Canon originally made these for but the fact that only 20 (rumored) were made indicates that it's a niche market :) .. you've mentioned collectors but I don't see that there would be many of those either

Snikt228: 1200MM is old news.

http://www.geek.com/news/canons-5200mm-prime-lens-is-super-rare-and-quite-massive-1534367/

I can't tell if you being sarcastic or misinformed, Snikt228? The story you linked to was about a 5200mm Canon prime of which only 3 were made, not the 1200mm in the DPrev story above.

On Never lose your lens cap again with HACkxTACK article (165 comments in total)

Attractive design but for about $3 on eBay I bought a pack of 10 lens cap savers which are nothing more than self-adhesive buttons attached to an elastic band. It would cost me $70 to save the same number of lens caps with the HxT.
Then again it might appeal to some who value style over just practicality. Nothing wrong with that if you have the money.

On French student creates SLR using 3D printer article (156 comments in total)
In reply to:

Ian J G: Just in terms of materials I wonder how much it would cost to print something like that?
I mean when you already have the design.

This seems to be a "proof of principle" experiment....
Question: Can we make a film camera with a 3D printer.
Answer: Yes.

No other factors like cost effectiveness have been taken into account.

Organic means carbon-hydrogen based, eg benzene is also organic (one for the science geeks)

Funny, I was about to make a comment in the forums on how there haven't been any new lens reviews lately and then I read this :)
Nice. Looking forward to its return.

What's PT -which country? DPReview has an international audience, wouldn't it be easier to list at deadline time in GMT?

tkpenalty: Love all the spec-sheet warriors here, because totally, having a max sensitivity of ISO1600 means that the camera is worse than a D800.

Okay sure, it is very expensive and maybe a bit overpriced. But seriously? Comparing it to a D800?

Agree with tkpenalty
If megapixels and apparent max iso is all people are worried about then the nokia purview might be the camera/phone they want.
This Leica might have a riduculously high price but they are aiming for a niche professional market. Leica wouldn't be making many of them so they would be limited in how low they can sell them for to recover costs and make a profit.
