pavi1: How is the write time with the X100T? It is forever with the X100 compared to every other digital camera I have used

I was just supplying information. You were making weak jokes.

4+seconds to record 1 picture. How many sips of beer that? Compared to my D300S which will record 1 picture so fast you can barely get your eye away from the viewfinder quick enough to see the record light go off. Recording raw format on both cameras. Strange thing is the Fuji does not noticeably change record time from raw to smallest jpg. Maybe I should shoot a video for you as you appear not to have another camera to compare to your
X100

I use a 95MB/s Sandisk Extreme Pro and the write times are on par with my Nikon CP5000. You can light a joint and take 1 1/2 hits while it writes one picture.

JMichaelsPhoto: I would have liked a dedicated ISO dial instead of ex. comp. I don't know why this bothers me about this camera. It's awesome in every other way, but if retro styling is part of the design, I don't know why there isn't one. But I suppose if I've put up with a lack of any such dials on my Nikon DSLRs, I can live without it on this camera. But why? It's retro. I guess I just don't see how an ex. comp. dial is more useful than an ISO dial on a digital camera. That's my only real complaint.

Forget what I said above on how exposure compensation works on D300S in Manual mode and Auto-ISO. I had never really used it in manual other than to see it move the light meter. In M mode aperture 1.4, shutter speed 1/250, exp comp 0, Auto-ISO uses 1600. I set exposure comp to -1 and ISO changes to 800 and picture is darker, set exposure comp to +1 and ISO changes to 3200 and picture is brighter. I suppose that could be useful.

Exposure compensation does nothing in manual. It does not matter if using auto iso or fixed iso. On my D300S, exposure compensation only changes the meter, not the exposure unless you change A or S or ISO to recenter the meter.

Auto iso works in manual mode on the X100.

I have X100 limited edition and a Nikon D300S with 10 lenses of various but mostly top quality. I use the X100 about 1/2 of the time. Great pocket camera.

On Opinion: Bring on the 70-200mm equivalents article (328 comments in total)

The only thing magic about 70-200 is that it is a great range on DX. It would suck for me on FX. I would want 105-300 2.8 for FX, not 50 - 140 for DX. There was never anything magic about 70 - 200 on 35mm.

Jonathan F/2: It's a phone. Big whoop.

Yes to you it is. To the rest of the world it is a pocket computer that happens to have a phone and camera included.

peevee1: Do you even need focusing on the sensor this small? Wouldn't DoF be like from 2ft and up when focused at hyperfocal? And who cares about focusing speed for macro?

You actually do need focus. Pick yours up and see.

brianj: It provides a very expensive P&S camera without any zoom, I wonder why people fall for it.

It is a pocket computer first. It is a phone second. It is a camera third. This should be simple enough.

Boss of Sony: TWO REASONS WHY CAMERA COMPANIES ARE LOSING MONEY: 1. Capitalism is dying (finally), because it is based on faulty mathematics, so it has to end at some point. 2. NOBODY CARES ABOUT PHOTOGRAPHY ANYMORE. The only people who care are the obsessives who think looking at an inferior 2-D representation of something on a screen is better than appreciating the real thing with your eyes in real time. Now that everone has a camera, people are waking up and thinking, what the hell is the point of photography? Why don't I just look at the world with my eyes and stop wasting valuable resources and valuable time doing a pointless activity?

Clueless or trying to be funny?

dr8: if by "losses" they figure 'em like the rest of corporate America, then that simply means - 'Hey, we did not make as much PROFIT as we thought/planned/hoped/told our investors/ we would.' - It does not mean that actual $$$ left their pockets....as is pointed out that profit was 1 cent MORE per share than what "analysts" THOUGHT it would be.

GAAP loss. Do you know what that is?

BlueBomberTurbo: Considering Apple's quote during the speech:

"It used to be that to take better pics, you just learned to become a better photographer."

Apparently Apple doesn't think much about professional photographers. At all. They're certainly not getting my money.

Why would a professional photographer care what kind of camera a cell phone has. The best are barely good enough to take a picture of a grocery list.

Mahmoud Mousef: It's really simple.
Social networking sites are a marketer's wet dream and a dream for central planners and profile-building global spying agencies.

You (and your kids) are the product. Make no mistake about it. You are exploitable to the maximum extent of the law. In case you haven't noticed, there is no law. EVERYTHING you do online is being recorded, including your phone calls and Skype calls.

Your details, pics and associations are shared with many companies in back-room deals; you have agreed to this. If you are OK with your associations and content being exploited by marketers and shared with government, insurance and god-knows-what-else, continue using these 'free' services.

If you're OK with these spies spying on you, that's fine. Just don't say anything critical of your so-called leaders or you may find yourself on the receiving end of a big stick real quick.

You are not in charge of your content. Your content and activities are there to be sold and exploited.

You are having a really difficult time are't you?

CameraLabTester: The company is addressing several issues with authorship and original image content being abused by other users, other than Facebook.

Facebook is washing their hands off with being blamed by third party thieves who inadvertently are existing Facebook partners. They don't want to be dragged in the quagmire of lawsuits.

It is almost impossible for Facebook to monitor theft by 3rd party users.

They want to cover their ass.

If you publish it on the internet, it is published forever and anywhere someone wants to repeat it.
