As an RX1 owner I can only be happy for this continue upgrade of the full format line by Sony, giving us ( the photographers) new LIGHT and CAPABLE tools for creating new images.There's a lot of cameras for everyone taste and needs, what we can ask more ?It's a good moment in the story of photography.
AbrasiveReducer: Very helpful, DPR. I like Capture NX so much, I even use it for my Canon files (alhough I suppose Viveza would work just as well). Just convert to .tiff and you can use anything to process anything.
Sometimes I do the same with my "Canon files", after basic conversion with DPP I make further adjustment in Capture NX.
Why not the 1DX in the poll ?I own both D800E and 1DX. there is no comparisons possible between the two, sorry fo the Nikon, but I find myself leaving the D800E at home the most of the time. It is a slow camera.It only has 36 mpMy vote is for the RX-1. Great camera, "innovative".
Marshal: Beautiful! That is absolutely wonderful! Wish I had taken that.
"I exchanged the background int a more dramatic one"and you "Wish I had taken that" ?It's not "taken" , it's BUILDED.
jtwz8975: The updates went great on my X-Pro1. After reading about 1000 forum comments over the last month I have concluded that most of the naysayers out there are arm-chair-generals who have never even held the camera or owned one, (or they're just whiners). AF is a little slow compared to my D700 but only in some situations. I'm sure it will get faster with future updates however in the meantime I have gotten several action shots of my kids after only a days practice. I'm lovin' the IQ on this thing and the lightweight rangefinder handling is so refreshing.
Leave aside whether or not X-pro1 is the ideal machine for photographing children, is as fast as an 5DMKII and other amenities that the final test of Dpreview I hope will reveal,you state that " are arm-chair-generals who have never even held the camera or owned one, (or they're just whiners"But how dare you insult the photographers on this forum ?
Gadgety: How about a firmware update to silence the criticism of slow autofocus?
How about a firmware update to silence those who do not want to admit the reality or, more simply, they are not able to photograph ?
Eh ? :-))
Alberto 1290: •Even if the chattering was annoying, the worst problem is the EVF IMAGE FREEZING DURING FOCUS ACQUISITION that make the X-Pro1 a pain to use for " little action photography".
YEEEES I have !! Look at my gallery. look at my reports.... uff !
