  • The default settings for noise reduction in jpgs are too high which is easily remedied by changing them to -2. Similarly the default sharpening settings in ACR are too low. Taken together this...

  • Except price is also based on the cost of R&D and setting up a production line divided by expected sales - the lower volume of Fuji sales means more expensive lenses and also on the quality of the...

  • Well look at the 18mm versus the 14mm in the Fuji system.  The corners of my 18mm are quite grim even at f8 and it IS something you see in prints, not just pixel peeping.  How much of that is due ...
  • Sorry, I wasn´t sure if that was a typo in your post, but Fuji X cameras are ALL APS-C.  They don´t have a different format.  I think you´re thinking of Micro 4/3 or Nikon mirrorless.  So all Fuji ...
  • Your last line seems a bit snarky towards the many people who've tried to help you in good faith.  A raw is not supposed to look like what he eye saw.  A raw is the data from the sensor which is ...
  • The point of RAW files is that you adjust them.  They're supposed to be flat because it's a neutral starting point for you tweak away and get  results better than OOC JPEGs.  There is nothing ...
  • Well I´m in my mid thirties and I´m quite fit with it, and trust me, a backpack with a big DSLR system starts to hurt sooner if you´re trekking 20km over difficult terrain - in the last year I´ve ...
  • I think both the Oly EM1 and the Fuji XT1 are excellent cameras.  They both give decent image quality and flexibility in small packages and you can´t really go wrong with either of them.  I think ...
  • The water colour effect is a problem that occurs with the X Trans sensor in certain situations - basically foliage, vegetation where the green information gets a bit smeary and imprecise.  You ...
  • Human beings love to think.  Too much.  Medieval monks with time on their hands would speculate about how many angels fit on a pinhead, on Dpreview people speculate about wheher a camera they have ...
  • Commented on Fujifilm X-T1 Review preview

    What an original comment. Ive never heard that one befor3. Except curiously none of my foliage shots, processed with Capture One, look like that. It's not exactly like this hasnt been discussed...

  • Commented on Fujifilm X-T1 Review preview

    Well I never shoot video and I DO mean never, so why wouldnt I? I think we can assume that potential X-buyers have other interests...

  • I´d get an XPro2 because i like the rangefinder style nad the hybrid viewfinder of my X Pro1.  I wouldn´t get one if it was FF because I dont feel inclined to go and buy yet another set of lenses ...
  • Replied in Why not?
    I got my first "proper" camera in about the year 2000.  It was a Minolta Dynax 5 SLR, a decent entry level film SLR (DSLRs were still very expensive and limited then.   I sold it within months to ...
  • Yeah, it´s true that the corners can be a bit murky at times but there is something very pleasing about the contrast and colour rendition that give images a nice quality overall if you´re not ...
  • Fuji X Pro 1, 18mm, f11, 1 second...... I´ve always loved long exposure, night shots.  This bridge is in central Seville.  I´m starting to get a bit obsessed with the bridge, the graffiti, and the ...
  • I get that all the time with my X pro 1.  People always assume it´s some old camera.  A friend of mine who I had just explained to that it was a brand new camera then got even more confused when I ...
  • It is smaller and lighter than a D800 and that IS the main advantage to be honest.  There are smaller cameras but I think the X Pro occupies (for me, this is clearly subjective) a particular ...
  • I´ve mostly been using Adobe RAW to process my Fuji RAW files and I have to say in the vast majority of shots there isn´t so much difference between Adobe and Capture One (which I´ve started using ...
  • In general I´m happy with a three prime set up - 14mm, 35mm and 60mm.   I do the vast majority of my shots with the 14mm and 35mm.   In the long run I want to extend my kit in two ways.  I ...
