  • I don't think the orb fiasco or QC issues alone doomed the X10 or X-S1, most people still haven't heard about it, even most first release buyers. It was mostly the price, Fuji was not known as a ...
  • Because of smart consumers like you there is no X-S2, and most likely there will be no X30. Fuji is cleaning house too and getting rid of customers who only buy Fuji cameras when they drop to half ...
  • The X10 sometimes gives false confirmation that it has acquired focus, and in reality it has not and image ends up totally miss-focused.  For some it is just a X10 quirk and they are able to work ...
  • You are the one engaging in bench testing and bench lecturing, you simply negated the real experience of one of many X10 users, who have trouble with early red channel clipping in incandescent ...
  • Funny thing, first you say you believe him, and then proceed to methodically put an "all cameras are doing this equally" spin to the rest of the post. It seems you don't really know how JPEG ...
  • It helps to use natural picture mode, it has less default sharpening. Keep it at middle, and boost contrast to higher (there is only one step). This way the JPEG's look great even at 100%. I find ...
  • Based on a same sensor and similar lens (it is not the same) is a far cry from OEM camera with a different badge slapped on. According to your reasoning, K-3 and D7100 would be the same camera if ...
  • There is one big difference in specs though, Kodak uses optical image stabilization, Pentax uses SR (sensor shift). This will alter the camera hardware and firmware substantially.

  • I was thinking about Kodak too, but from the front they do look different, especially the lens barrel, and Kodak has optical stabilization, Pentax has sensor shift (at least that's in the specs), ...
  • Can you enlighten me as to who is the OEM supplier? I had the XZ-1 briefly, and I can assure you there is absolutely nothing in common performance wise, and even the physical similarities stop ...
  • Well, if you want the harsh truth, Pentax brand won't be around for much longer, if things continue the way they are now. Just saying...
  • I think this is slightly harsh comment, Pentax/Ricoh did spend some time tweaking and customizing this camera, the X-5 did look and feel like a Pentax product, they did the best they could with ...
  • Replied in Pentax XG-1
    The MX-1 is not an XZ-2 or EX10. The lens is closely related, but not identical, the MX-1 lens has one more aspherical element (XZ-2: 11 elements, 8 groups, 3 aspherical, MX-1: 11 elements, 8 ...
  • Who do you think designed the MX-1? It is definitely not the XZ-2, the AF system alone on MX-1 is miles ahead of the Olympus.
  • Created discussions Pentax XG-1
    I was hoping for a MX-1 update, but we get this, XG-1, a 52x zoom bridge, at $400. Announced tonight. http://www.us.ricoh-imaging.com/digital-camera/XG-1#!product-specs Trying to figure out who the ...
  • Pure speculation on your part. Lens modules of XF1 and XQ1 are identical only in optics, everything else is different. This is not Lego where all the parts mix and match according to your ...
  • No, in extreme situations with a lot of bright red color, or when shooting red in incandescent lighting, reduce the exposure by -2/3 Ev, or even more, the X10 is very sensitive to red channel ...
  • This is just red channel clipping (overexposure). When that happens, the affected areas of red change color to lighter. Nothing to do with how the sensor splits the pixels for EXR DR exposure. ...
  • Replied in x30?
    In my opinion there will be no X30. If it comes with a bigger 1" sensor, it will be too expensive alongside existing X-A1 and X-M1, especially if smaller lens range is needed to keep the size and ...
  • EXR auto would be closest to optimal default if it wasn't set to overexposse in most EXR cameras, defeating its purpose, and then the NR should be lower too at default. Kim L. settings are also ...
