Woodlink: "...aluminum, pulled from the crust of the Earth itself."

Whew, glad they didn't used plastic aluminum.

I didnt know Bauxite is mostly extracted in the third world.

So glad I know that now. Thank you.

I didn't come here to pick a fight.

Relax.

Never been a lot of places....just a bit of sarcasm to the fact DJI made such a big deal about using aluminum instead of using a faux version of the element.

I just though it was funny.

I never said China was 3rd world and I am aware how aluminium is made.

doctor digi: Nice video - but you wouldn't be able to legally fly it in so many of those locations.

I have a P2+ and I think I will sell it. Soon the forces of darkness will arrive, here in Europe and in the US, and flying these will be confined to special flight parks and be made illegal elsewhere without a very expensive licence and pro training.

These are the golden days. Unfortunately there are too many idiots out there and it will only require the downing of one passenger plane by engine ingestation of a 'copter to seal the fate of this hobby.

I for one would welcome licensing and vetting by the proper agencies.

Such would likely increase the value of aerial services.

Read: pro's getting paid pro money.

Have you read the proposed rules by the FAA (2-15-15)? Hardly draconian.

whtchocla7e: Good on Fuji for milking this thing for as long as they can. When you have a fan base that parts with their money at the drop of a hat, you can just sit back and watch the $$$ roll in.

What I mean is that ALL manufacturers bring multiple variants of bodies to the market. The camera makers are in the business of making a PROFIT.

Woodlink: The amount of packaging for this camera is ridiculous and unnecessary.

If I was paying that kind of money for such an average camera, I'd expect Queen Elizabeth herself to deliver it...white gloves and all. :)

On Nikon D4s First Impressions Review preview (1042 comments in total)
In reply to:

kcallo: I got Breast Cancer 6 years ago (I'm male). I saved and saved for my D3s. I love it. I take photos of family, events, singers, bands, etc. I brought the best glass I could. Life is short. My father died just over a year ago from cancer. About 4 months after he was diagnosed. My mother has Dementia. I care(d) for both of them, and pretty much gave up my career. I have gorgeous photos of my father taken with my D3s. So much detail. Priceless.

Whatever camera you get, big or small, it's not ALL about the specs. It's what you get out of it.

Been awhile for the D4s, If I can get it, I will. My D3s does everything I want it to. I want another body so I don't have to keep swapping lenses.

If you want and can afford a D4s, go get one. If you want a P&S, great. No right or wrong in camera choice. We live in amazing times as photographers.

Get out, shoot. We're all gonna die someday, and I for one, aren't gonna bitch about a few megapixels, or FPS here and there.

LIVE LIFE !! Take a photo.

Well.

Freaking.

Said.

-get out there and create something-

Yabokkie's probably taking a yabokkie.

Don't worry, the expected pessimism is due anytime now.

the Canon 5D mark 3 is way overpriced as well.

Fuji claiming they have AF tracking/predictive focus?

There better be ZERO lag on that EVF...

Direct link | Posted on Jan 28, 2014 at 14:10 UTC as 344th comment | 2 replies

It's quite funny to read ignorant comments here about how the X-Trans or this potential new design are completely dumb.

That's like saying we never needed different types of film!

Wise up folks.

On Pictures emerge showing widely-leaked Fujfilm 'X-T1' article (373 comments in total)
In reply to:

Frank C.: I wonder how good the AF tracking is? because there is a difference between "AF-tracking" and "trying to AF-track"

I think a good barometer of this unit's ability to track focus would be to compare it to the (still very relevant) Canon 7D.

In fact, perhaps I'll do just that and post some results.

Hmmm...
