great photo.. did you take without polarizer too? :-) just for comparison..
I saw the comparison chart of FZ150 with FZ35 @iso 100.
very surprisingly In the left hand side and FZ35 was much sharper (in batteries and other places) and in the middle FZ35 was mildly sharper and in right hand side of the photo, FZ150 was sharper. I think panny did very good job in right side of the camera, despite increasing zoom.
great review dpreview.com.
I don't see any reason, why you should not do "lens review dynamic graph" kind of thing where you can do graph of lens performance, that would help us finding sweet spots and right apertures.
Thank you for all those voted. I am very thrilled to win this competition.
This photo was done with a Micro lens Nikon - 4T and the entire web was hanging between two grass blades. In the background you see another grass that is few centimeters away requiring 2.8 to diffuse too close background.
excellent creativity, you got something which several must have over looked
i cannot understand how a person is happy sitting between beggars!! really funny!!
shame that even simple competitions attract photoshop cut and paste
For a TZ3 this is very good photo.. excellent
great job Fujifilm. who knows, this may be very handy in future.
beautiful.. mood creating (i know the meaning of these)
actually i own this camera. it s name is FZ-150 ; albeit not this much burst mode.
looks rather masculine
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.
