On Fujifilm X-T1 Review preview (463 comments in total)

It seems Fuji has given video operation some priority, by placing the video button where the Fn button used to be.

The EC dial is made stiffer, thus it requires thumb and index finger to turn and one therefore activates video unintentionally...:-(

Hopefully Fuji will allow us to program the video button or disable its function all together in future firmware update.

Thanks Barney for the X-T1 samples. It would be helpful to know the internal camera JPEG settings, especially for NR.

Cheers,

On Sony Alpha A7 / A7R preview (2381 comments in total)

The loud shutter sound is a real turn-off for me. Hopefully Sony will address this in their future version.
Listen to this hollow sound of the shutter: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WmS2fUngz2o:

On Fujifilm X-M1 Review preview (215 comments in total)
In reply to:

rxbot: It would be great if someone put the 18mm on the X-M1 and X-A1 and compared to Ricoh GR,NikonA and 28 equivalent on E-M1 . That will pit APS-C against m43s and Xtrans versus Bayer.

X-M1 and X-A1 will fail to inspire the consumer just like Canon's EOS M. Canon had to drop pricing by over 60% to spark consumers' interest. When Fuji introduced the X-F1 to provide a more compact version of the X10, consumers avoided it like a plague and its price dropped 50% within six month.
Fuji will be better off to offer high quality products made in Japan than cheap quality "high priced" cams that nobody wants.

On Panasonic Lumix G X Vario 14-42mm F3.5-5.6 ASPH OIS preview (181 comments in total)

I got this lens at Future Shop Canada a couple of days ago.
Images are horrible at 42mm FL with shutter speeds faster than 1/30sec.
O.I.S. seems to prevent the lens to focus properly.
So this one goes back.

It seems Kim Letkeman got the last good version...lucky fellow...:-(

On Summary of Fujifilm X10's functions and issues article (10 comments in total)

Hi Timur,

Thanks for your 3 months worth of effort gathered here.
Hopefully this article gets lots of traffic, once the X10 users recognize the usefulness of this link.

Here is an other earlier link, that was initially very helpful for the first days of shooting with my X10.

DPR Thanks for your effort.

We finally have a clear understanding of the sensor issue.
Naturally all X10 owners were waiting and hoping that Fuji would address this issue with the current firmware version, unfortunately without avail.

X10 owners now have a decision to make. Or can we still hope that Fuji will recall the camera and replace the sensor?

We are looking forward to Fuji's reply.

Hi Max,

Many users of the X10 are appreciating your chart, me included.
However, may I suggest an addition or addendum to cover the limitations the user encounters that are not covered by the Operation Manual?

It could be in form of a table or chart or a combination of the two.

See Post under Max Help!

In reply to:

max metz: Luego, I’ll repeat the answer here in case it helps someone else.

In the Advanced Pro Low Light mode the user is choosing the EV with the ev compensation dial – almost everything stems from that.

For this bus port frame, another quasi control in this mode is the amount in focus; focusing around the frame to achieve the greatest range in focus, locking that with a half shutter press then reframe and shoot. The camera system is very clever, always aiming to achieve your intent. :D

Max, thanks for your inside.

Perhaps I should apply EV comp more often. My fear in these situations, since I'm shooting JPEG is the higher noise level introduced using - EV to underexpose shadows (I do not use any PP whatsoever).

However, sometimes we have to compromise between higher noise/quasi control or no control over exposure and lower noise. The re-framing is also a good point, especially since under Pro Low-Light we never know what DOF we end up with in the final image.

Hi Max,

I have a question regarding your exposure settings for the Pro Low-Light "bus stop" image.

Take a look at the comments in your galley under image.

Thanks mate

On DSCF0942s M Adv pro low light photo in max metz's photo gallery (2 comments in total)

Very nice image Max!

I wonder why the camera selected shutter speed 1/100 sec and ISO 400.
(especially with EV -2.00 and f 2.0))

I can't believe it!

I have used the X10 Pro Low-Light mode during day light and ended up with

shutter speed 1/60 sec and ISO 2000. (EV 0 and f 2.8)

How can I lower the ISO and increase shutter speed in Pro Low-light mode?

Do you have any idea, Max?

I would very much appreciate your response.

Happy images
