On Nikon Df preview (2817 comments in total)

Almost right...
Nikon got the basics in place. All it needs is a little finesse.
More refinement.
A little smaller too...

In reply to:

joexu: That is pretty big, just a DSLR with retro looks. Would've preferred a mirrorless FF

right... just when I thought Nikon was starting to get it...

nevermind, back to Fuji.

neo_nights: Honest question: I know that smartphones don't give a lot of control, thus making the test scenes a little hard to even them out. But there are some apps out there that at least let you choose ISO. It's really unfair to compare a "high ISO" of 400 against a high ISO of 1600 (Galaxy 4).

So why don't you use an app and at least use same ISO for all the smartphones?

If my iPhone got just a little smarter, I'd do 98% of my photos in anything but Auto...
At least exposure compensation. It's that basic... Do it Apple!

arhmatic: I have a dumb question -
Why are sensor sizes always measured in inches?

Most if the world is in metric. Including manufacturers. But even for people using inches in everyday life is hard to calculate fractions and compare sizes... I am a US architect, using inches daily, ALWAYS preferring to see millimeters...

@slncezgsi
Good link. Just in the article above...

1/2.3" vs 1/3" ok... I can think a little, I can figure it out which one is bigger... OR...
6.17mm vs 4.8mm BOOM! Got it!

On Nikon D800 Review preview (16 comments in total)

Maybe it's just me, but I see this camesas looking more and more like a melted soap bar. I miss the days when bodies had straight, clean lines. They were also much smaller, for the same full frame film...

Plastek: Still no iPad version?

This iPad app needs to happen asap. Any other updates to the existing versions can wait.
Same with Instagram.

On Nikon D610 preview (627 comments in total)

The naming is odd. They should have renamed the current one d600c, plastic, and have the new one with some golden Button and call it d600s.

In reply to:

CFynn: Fuji have brought out an impressive number of good lenses in the relatively short time X mount cameras have been available.

Thanks Fuji.
Keep it up and never go plastic!

In reply to:

Jiri Folta: I was taken by the quality of Fujifilm cameras and lenses. Not only optical quality but also craftsmanship quality. It was major reason why I sold my Nikon D7000 and all those plastic Nikon lenses made in China, Thailand and so on.
Now, I'm reading that new Fuji lenses are plastic and made in China (XC 16-50mm OIS and XF 27mm (as written on fujirumors.com - First Look: X-M1 with New Kit Zoom and Pancake Lens). An idea of photographic company that is going to bring quality materials and some quality spirit is gone. I hope not but it seems like things are going this way.
Reading some day that X-Pro 2 or X-E 2 are made in China I would sell it all away.
I don't want to buy plastic in China made lenses and cameras. I want in Japan made metal quality. For me, buying Fuji was not only buying photographic tool, it was also investment in the future! It was some kind of promise many photographers had accepted.
I hope we can call Go Fuji Go in the future again!

Agreed!

Construction quality is important. I am not buyting the concept that metal would double cost, as some say. Weight is fine with me. Fuji, if you turn to plastic, I am out... sorry.

On Editorial: Why I can't stop taking iPhone Panoramas article (300 comments in total)
In reply to:

Jogger: Editorial??? More like, Advertorial.

@simon - probably the excessive number of articles dedicated to the iphone, makes is similar to "advertorial"

I count 7 articles on the front page. Yes, it's the most used phone camera. I own one. Does not make it the best... but the features are evolutionary, not revolutionary... And personally, I think the iPhone 5 images are better and sharper than the 5s - per your previous comparision.

In reply to:

Photato: What impress me is the fact that many dedicated photography devices lack features like this but are found in Phones!
Canon i am looking at you, is not even funny!

Such as?...

Meanwhile, many essential photography features, present in most phones, are missing from the iPhone. OK, let's not talk about the ISO or WB. But exposure compensation is kind of important, as the expsure is never right with my iPhone 5.

In reply to:

jon404: First impressions... what? You couldn't take it to a beach... or find a nearby swimming pool? Suggest breaking that test budget and rent a motel room... hit that pool... and see how it works in snorkel-depth water. And, while you're at it, why not put a test target on the bottom of the pool... say at the 2-meter depth line... and start a reference standard for future underwater camera tests?

How would that test prove?
Of course it works underwater.

It's just like pushing the power button, to make sure it turns on, then post a video of that. Then the crows goes uh...ahh....

DonSantos: I pre-ordered one. It'll go very nicely with the new 23mm 1.4 lens.

@abortabort - I don't think I ever mentioned EVF... I am not suggesting anything, It was a question. Just a question, not a suggestion, not an advice not an assumption. Read again.
@King Penguin - yes, that makes sense.

In reply to:

arhmatic: I really need to question Fuji on this one...

Do we really need FOUR tiers?
What's next now? an X camera phone

They are really diluting the initial retro concept of the X cameras, as the real pro oriented mirrorless... this is why I initially bought into the system. Terrible move, if you ask me.

@Timmbith - Maybe... Personally, I don't think it should cover EVERY single market segment. Cover some, but cover them well. The Pro-1 did a great job at that time. It should diversify a little, but I definitely don't need an X phone camera next.
