I like it
misha marinsky4: Ferrania house label films were generally lower quality. They made the Walgreens house brand, IIRC.
I have been reading the comments with amusement. To paraphrase Zone Zero, 'A film camera is like a mortgage, with payments for life.'
With a digital camera, it costs zero to press the shutter release. With a film camera, it costs even if it's a dud. I can't delete the shot for another. I still have to pay for development and a contact sheet. A memory card is quite literally an unlimited supply of 35mm film.
Like the look of film? There's DXO Film Pack, for starters. There's Kentmere, an inexpensive Ilford line. There's Freestyle, which sells inexpensive silver halide products.
With the Pentax MF, bodies have dropped below $10K. It's still not cheap, but Moore's Law applies to them, too. Sometime in the future, MF will compete with 35mm FF. The Mamiya ZD used a Dalsa chip; it was only usable at ISO 100, and they're cheap on eBay.
No one can stop the relentless march of technology.
Shooting digital is like eating McD, shooting film is like having 6 course French diner. It's all of to personal preference :)
I HATE Canon for cheating us with this!!
m3: At last! A Leica M10 equivalent for less than $1000. Thank you Canon, we know you can ...
I hope it is. Why nobody dare to challenge Leica??
Kwanon digital fullframe rangefinder
jondh: I want x-pro2 :(
It is Xpro1 that needs upgrades not X100S. I own X100S and I still think it is sufficient for my photographic need that I dont need to upgrade to X100T
I want x-pro2 :(
I like that split image manual focusing on optical view finder
How can we hold an aluminium camera in outdoor winter??
moji: Such a great looking camera. I wish I was a Nikonian! Come on Ricoh, before we, the remaining Pentaxians migrate there, they build such cameras lkke DF. Give us the digital LX!
Great looking? You must be kidding or you never had the original FM camera
The idea to make an FM like camera is a right decision. But if I were CEO of Nikon, seeing this resulting camera I will fire the designer team!
Nikon this is pre production, please redesign the camera!
Ugly camera too many knobs! I say Nikon fails to make a digital retro like camera
Hope someday we will be able to photograph atoms
Poor image quality. My Iphone4 gives me better image and sharper with its 5MP sensor
smatty: But all these wonderful improvements and extra features aside, I am now puzzled even more why there is still no update for minimum shutter speed control in Auto ISO?
Why is this a long implemented feature on the X10, X20, X100 and X100S, yet it is still omitted in the X-"PRO" 1???
I wish someday Fuji make lens with fully mechanical aperture
How expensive is range finder mechanism??
Please have also black X100S at normal price!
I received my fuji adapter 2 days ago. It works fine with my Voigtlander 21/f4 and 35/f1.4. Focusing with my X-E1 electronic view finder is easy and sharp.
