The Sage Knows: Andy Westlake said "by using 'Touch AF',... you simply tap the screen where you want it to focus. In this mode, though, the camera won't refocus between shots using the shutter button (unlike every other touchscreen model on the planet), so you have to touch to focus every single shot, which is equally annoying."
Not if you want to shoot the same subject several times (to get a different expression, vertical vs.horizontal, off center vs. center, etc). Then every camera on the planet (but this) will annoying try an refocus on the subject (even though its distance didn't change), slowing you down by requiring some other method to lock focus for every shot.
So if I understood the reviewer correctly, this feature is really a good thing.
Well, that's what a focus lock function is good for.
Lawrencew: Any suggestion as to why the video quality from the X-T1 and the X-E2 is so poor?
Is it something that can be addressed in a firmware fix down the line, or is it something inherent in the sensor?
I'm a bit into filming with X-E2. Video quality is not poor. It really has its strength when it comes to colors. But there are missing some essential functions which could be fixed via firmware. Like: Exposure lock, manual focus aid while shooting, more frame rate, bit rate options.
Let's hope Fuji will fix this.
kongqueror: WOW! I've been looking around for a smaller, more wife-friendly second camera and looking at the V3, I am in-lust! Just love the design and the tech involved. Sadly, the sensible cash-strapped man in me cannot stomach the price. Sigh. A used Panasonic G3 or a fire sale Olympus E-PM2 will have to do. Darn, it is so sexy!
"wife-friendly" - serious? Idiot.
Just one question to those of you looking forward to more small 4k gadgets: What do you need this resolution for?
GurcemZekai: I did voted for GR, only because price/value. Fuji x100s is great camera but when you compare vs Gr which has very similar spects (if not better) the price becomes important.
I believe Gr is like 600 british pounds while x100s is 900
It's more about ergonomics and operation when it comes to practical use. The specs won't tell you that both cameras are totally different concepts. I personally love Fuji's direct control of aperture, shutter speed and exposure, which feels very intuitive. Others like program modes. When image quality is that similar, you should really try which one suits your personal style of shooting most.
burnin: All I see are overexposed photos. Just sayin'.
oh c'mon. How can someone have such a technical view on that?Hopeless...
h2k: Funny sign "I'm sorry". But i think you shouldn't even excuse yourself for anything.
If anything, readers should say "We're thankful".
You're right.Thanks dpreview.
SKPhoto12: When are you guys going to do a full review of this camera. The Fuji X-Pro 1 is the most exciting thing that has happened to the photographic world in a long time and there is still no review after more than a year in the market. Any Sony camera gets a full review before it hits the street. Fuji is doing such an outstanding job with the bodies and lenses for the X line and you just don't react. Do they refuse to pay you? What is up with you guys?
An updated review would be important to show what the camera is about NOW. Since FW 3.0 it's responsive, quite good autofocus speed, very good auto focus accuracy, nice manual focus handling etc.
I know dpreview, it's about your ressources. Priority might be newer cameras.
sharp and crisp, nice detail. But i don't like the colors so much. Seem to be a bit flat and lifeless.
Wonderful composition. Perfect pp - perfect color, sharpness, contrast. Stunning!
not so nice bokeh.
Sorry, but what the hell... Putting a fish into a glass for a photo is bad. Besides it is unterexposed and not well focused.
I'm getting more and more impressed by the Fuji X-Pro 1. It has better detail and color in direct comparison to the Canon 6D. Though you should compare JPG output, as RAW rendering of the Fuji samples in this studio test is just bad.
Just by the way. Sorry for being a bit off topic.
Wow, this is the first picture that I comment in here. It is wonderful!
glacierpete: To expensive and to big. It hink it is not a good idea to copy Leica price wise, just because the body is Leica M shaped. Fuji's medium format rangefinder cameras where placed more reasonably, including my Texas Leica, Fuji GSW690.
Not everyone here is native English/American. So cool down.
High ISO seems to be bad, but colors are very nice.
Barney Britton: Sorry everyone, technical issues here - this content isn't scheduled to publish until later tonight but the news story has got a bit ahead of itself. We're working to get everything on the site as soon as we can. Normal service will be resumed shortly.
I would strongly recommend recording the audio in mono for those videos. Right now you have big trouble with phase problems in the audio track. Listeners with stereo speakers or headphones do not have problems. But those who have a mono speaker in their laptop will hear almost nothing. The right and left side of the stereo audio is nearly 100% phase inverted. Just do it on mono for those videos and everything is cool.
