what equipments you used for this? a superb photo in all aspects
horror....wonderful sharp photo
Marty4650: This really does look like a nice camera, and a good step in the right direction.
I would have preferred a smaller zoom range (say around 24-480mm) so the camera could be smaller and lighter, and probably cheaper. But as it stands, it will probably well outperform my old FZ30 thanks to the improvements in technology since 2006.
I predict this will be a hit, and a category killer for Fuji. At least among shooters who take photography seriously....
Yes, But Fuji is late. It is just stupid to flood the camera in the market after the season is over. If Fuji had mind to release or even announce this camera on par with Panny FZ47/FZ150, they would have sold 20% more. Which is equivalent to 50% increase in profits (as production cost is not linear).
jaykumarr: Perhaps, adding a direct optical view finder would increase the value a lot for this gem of a camera.
fully agree with you.. yes, but still a small mirror reflection would be great
yabokkie: in theory, this will translate into a 16-420/7.2-14 lens on APS-C, and is good enough for airshow on a sunny day. will Sigma or Tamron really make such a lens (for Sony)?
but problem is focussing and seeing the aircrafts in real time. the LCD view is say .04 seconds slower than real time, then we will get photos only by luck
JackM: I don't get it. If I'm going to lug around a camera this big, it's going to be a real DSLR. I like to choose lenses for myself, thanks.
Fuji would be wiser to develop the X100 concept further, like with interchangeable lenses and more fast primes. They could really build a niche around that body. Only Leica can/will compete.
// "changing lenses" and all that kind of "technical" stuff. // no.. it is difficult.. keep not a baby but just a bag in your hand, then you will understand how difficult is changing lens. basically, you handle three things. body, lens to fix, lens to move.

shutter speed tells the story.. very good entry for the theme
superb photo .. for a lumix
is there a man standing with dark blue dress?
happy snapper uk,actually winning this competition is pooh..
very good photo.. natural colors.. The bokeh appears artificial to me..
great... great photoshop work
A. Eiger: I just found this one from a previous post. http://www.dpreview.com/challenges/Entry.aspx?ID=523613The image is worlds better (in all aspects) than the 1st place winner.
better is all aspects? that is your perspective.
The name Goami and his photo are most discussed than Ansel Adams and Steve Jobs. So let us move on.
jaykumarr: :-) I just spoke to Tamron Marketing Director Mr.ToyVote about this.
He told me that, due to the bitter reactions from dpreview users they are going to scrap this contest and he is going to keep the lens himself, and Gaomi is not going to get this prize. He further told me that those 51 fresh members who voted 5 STAR for this will be give each 16$ each (price of prize/51).
He added that he is hiring Gaomi as CSO(Chief Strategy Officer) in Tamron marketing with salary of 170,000,000 Yen, plus perks including annual trips to Poland with joining bonus of array of Tamron lenses.
Bloomberg just reported that Tamrons share prizes are up by 3.81% this morning after this strategic move by Mr. Toy Vote.
Goami,True, I was a stand-up comedian. But in an on-the spot "funniest stand-up comedian" contest, there were 4 other stand-up comedians competed with me. Though I deserved first place, another guy networked with his friends, facebook, out sourced voting to China, Poland,Philippines and got 51 times more vote than all ohter comedians. Later it was found that he was not even a comedian but a photographer that was invited to the contest. After that incident, I was wrecked and stopped doing comedy.

Cy Cheze: What? No questions about the X-S1? No pre-production model to see? What are camera expos for?
thanks for answer Mr. Britton
our website name should be changed to dPREVIEW.com
djec: so just to be clear, this 'mirrorless, interchangeable lens camera' ... with ‘resolution and low noise [that] will surpass the 35mm full size sensor.’ doesn't actually exist? kinda more of an ambition on fuji's part then. might as well have thrown in that it's smaller than a pack of cigs and costs only £9.99.
djec,You said your point crisp, clear with a taste.
I am very very surprised one guy misunderstands and believes he should ask such a question and 3 others 'Like it' .!!!
Marty4650: I think my Panasonic FZ30 was actually larger and heavier than my Olympus E510, and it only had a 12X zoom with a much smaller sensor than 2/3"
If these specs are real (36X zoom, 2/3" sensor, lens starting at f/2.8) then this camera should be HUGE. Unless there has been some breakthrough in physics, this will be a pretty large and heavy camera.
Fuji will do all extreme desperations like EXR, pixel binning, post processing, sharpening to make impossibles happen. I think this time they are screwed up with 'mirror lens'.
I would be 100 times happier if the lens were simple 12x and Fuji sells extn lens for $150. ( Fuji makex more $$$, I get more quality)
