On Chinese government orders Nikon to stop selling D600 article (228 comments in total)
In reply to:

codeNsnap: In contrast this is how Fujifilm reacted within about a week of the XT-1 flare reports -

I'm not sure if Nikon will learn anything out of this D600 debacle.

Fujifilm certainly DID deny the orb issue, for about half a year. Only the horrific bashing that they took across all forums FORCED fujifilm to cave in. Thankfully they learned from that lesson, unlike NIkon.

Way to go Nikon. That's handling the problem right.

Pathetic.

On Apple is on camera-engineer hiring spree post (87 comments in total)
In reply to:

tbcass: It will be many years before these new engineers will come up with anything worthwhile. Since the camera manufacturers are way ahead I doubt this will get Apple anywhere. I see the days of Apples dominance failing fast which is fine with me.

You do realize that there were many phone makers with many years head start on Apple right? Yet Apple blew past them like a Ferrari.

Your logic is senseless and completely lacking.

On Canon announces EOS M2 in Japan article (616 comments in total)
In reply to:

wcbert: I been shooting with Canon DSLR for over a decade ands own 12 "L" lens. I am also a Fuji X-e1 owner too. Canon has to do better alot better than this. There is no excuse they are not even trying to become a leader in the mirrorless camera world. They not even trying to be in third place!

Canon read the writing on the wall and look what Sony is doing. If not then except to become the Blackberry of the camera world.

Mirrorless cameras are doing excellent for companies whose business model includes the goal of losing millions of dollars.

bbodruzic: Thank you Fujifilm.
You are creating brand loyality with theese improvements.
I love the sharpness, details and colors of my photos, and everything about my camera.
I like the speciall feel that I have when using your products.
I like your customer care.

Good job Fujifilm guys.

A good job by Fujifilm would have been to get more right the first time. You know, actually test their cameras before selling them?

Graham Hill: So you have to be an X Series camera owner to get this magazine?

Yes but the poorly worded title indicates that you do need one.

People get paid to write this poorly?

photo perzon: X100 makes my wife look 10 years younger, whereas X100S and X-trans make her look 1 years older.

The dark areas of the X-trans are so dark, wrinkles are accentuated.

Pure genius.

Marty4650: This looks like a very nice addition to the Fuji X line, and a good way to expand their market appeal.

What I find interesting is how Olympus and Fuji have taken opposite directions with MILC cameras. Olympus started at the bottom, with relatively low featured and modest cameras, and worked their way up to weather sealed semi pro cameras and some really nice lenses. Fuji seems to be doing the reverse... starting at the top, then working their way down.

And both systems offer a lot for potential customers.

Meanwhile.... Canon is watching all this, scratching their heads, and wondering why their EOS-M was such a market failure....

Fujifilm, Panny, and Olympus are losing heaps of money (tens of millions every year), while Canon is pulling in millions every year.

ManuelVilardeMacedo: Let's just hope the sale to UK employees' pension plan doesn't mean the end of Kodak film. After all, Ilford went into receivership and now it is going on with their core business. And Italy's Ferrania is rising from the ashes right now. There's still a niche that needs to be filled.
Today, still unaware of this news, I bought a T-Max 100 35mm roll for my Olympus OM-2n. I hope it wasn't the last Kodak roll l loaded my camera with. I still haven't tried Tri-X and Ektar...

Plus X was discontinued a loooong time ago.
