sierranvin: This will be an excellent backup device to carry in reserve on wildlife photoshoots into the 3rd world! Also as the primary - hooray - I've got less weight - for backcountry travel.
Well done Sony!

What? Did they find a new world? Not even a second but a third world? What solar system? Why wasn't this covered in the news?

What's the strategy here? Can someone explain?

On article Retro through-and-through: Fujifilm X-Pro2 Review (2456 comments in total)

In my opinion this review is full of subjective viewpoints that belong to the reviewer only. For example, to state that the camera is more appropriate for primes and asses the ISO dial control is quirky is just matter of personal taste. I feel comfortable using zoom lenses with my X-Pro2 and I find the new ISO control very useful, just lift and rotate with your right hand (in addition to the extra Fn button that it liberates).
Since the original X100 I felt very comfortable with Fuji's rangefinder approach. I sold all my gear and I never looked back. Of course, I have been shooting the X-Pro1 for a while and I find that the hybrid viewfinder offers the best of both worlds.
This review seems to be written in a hurry, without an objective and impartial point of view. This site should remember that everything published in this website has a strong impact on the public. Subjective opinions do not help buyers to make a fair assessment of the products reviewed here.

I own the first version of this camera and its performance is rock solid. I share the views of this review and confirm that is the best all-in-one camera in the market. The image quality is excellent and the 24-200 2.8 lens is superb. This camera is so good that I am debating what to do with the rest of my gear.

I encourage all who criticize to go to the nearest store and try the RX10. Rent it if you can. You will be pleasantly surprised.

Neodp: Not withstand the efficacy of the update and overall good or not enough improvement(s) then their its a much greater point here....

No one (hardly?) said (possible or not) this camera was deficient in tracking AF or low light comparatively when they were promoting it's first adopter goodness and new pros!

What does that have to do with value? It means you can't know until the camera has been out a while and put through it's paces for the tasks photographers value the most. It begs the question; what benefits matter most? Subjectivity is not a wide... as it is made out to be. Yes there's room for subjective benefits and horses for courses to a point. There no accounting for tastes. Yet that view is completely overblown; from the perspective of new camera design. Yes that should include the user need, that's the photographer that actually takes pictures. Not Gear Acquisition and paper specs alone. There's a lot more to a total camera than that. It's a warning about over priced vanity.

I do not understand neither

Samuel Dilworth: It’s a shame that Apple has abandoned Aperture, but it’s a greater shame that no-one makes a satisfactory replacement.

Lightroom started out as a fresh and wonderful thing, but over the years it became sluggish, overloaded with features I don’t need or want, and increasingly messy in terms of user interface.

Capture One is arguably worse.

Nothing has the spit and polish of Aperture. I loved clicking on the Aperture icon in the Dock and keyboard-shortcutting my way through a new batch of photos. I’ve never really enjoyed using other imaging apps in that way – only their results (which in some ways were better than Aperture. For example, noise reduction and sharpening were never great in Aperture).

Oh well.

I do not know what version of Capture One you have reviewed but Capture One 8 is, in fact, very similar to Aperture. I have been playing with it for a couple of days and feels much more familiar to me than Lightroom does.

Please add me to the list of those who feel aggrieved by Apple's decision to stop supporting Aperture. Years of collecting images and hundreds of hours of work now seem to be in jeopardy. Since Aperture's death is imminent, I have started to identify the alternatives. Being a Fuji and Sony owner, Capture One is on top of my list and the obvious second contender is Adobe Lightroom. Transitioning to either means that I will lose all the adjustments I have made to my images in Aperture unless I export individual images!! Ouch! That really hurts.
On the other hand I wonder if Phase one will be in business long enough so I don't see all my work work going to waste again. Adobe will certainly stay for long but now the company is smelling to monopoly for the image business.
Anyway, its very disappointing how Apple has decided to give a kick on the butt to some of its loyal customers. That does not seem right, at least to me.

I got a bunch of plug-ins for Aperture and I am afraid that they won't be compatible with Photos. We will see if those who make the plug-ins such as Nik Software make the updates necessary to be usable in Photos. Might be time to switch to lightroom :(

Nice system, certainly impressive. Would be tempted to buy this camera if its interface did not feel like a playstation.

Amazed on how beautiful and well designed fuji's lenses are. In addition to superb optics, they are by far the most visually appealing lenses in the market.

On article Apple to cease development of Aperture (425 comments in total)
In reply to:

jjlmoose: I'm not sure what all the fuss is... the way I read this is Apple will be incorporating an Aperture-like program called Photos in to Yosemite and you will be able to transfer all your Aperture libraries. Sounds like a win-win to me. Are people afraid that if you don't have to pay extra for it that'll be no good? With good RAW support, sounds to me like some Apple users will be less inclined to go with CC and more with frEE.

The fuss comes from experience. Did you see what Apple did with Pages? The new version was not an improvement but a step backwards.

Link | Posted on Jun 29, 2014 at 02:18 UTC

I love the idea and definitely will buy this lens when comes out.

I am just intrigued by Fuji's strategy. X100s $1300, WCL (28mm equiv) $300, new 50mm equiv $300 Total $1900.00

Compare prices and lenses within Fuji cameras and the competition.

Very smart Fuji... very smart
