I don't get it! $6,500 bucks for a 16mp FF camera body, they don't need to sell very many of these to make a huge profit, regardless of the market conditions!
This is a big time Rip in my mine, I would take the D800-D800e any day over this camera.
Please, Please update these reviews, it's 2014!!We need more info on Video Specs!!!!!!!
Bit Rates!! File type!!! Uncompressed Video? video focus modes?
I have read that the phase detect points show up in some videos!
Philip Sm: If Fuji are listening, I would like them do something about the RAW size 31mb's for a 16 megapixel camera.
They need to have option so it can be smaller or be able to determine if you want 12 or 14 bit output.
Some photos people would not need the whole 16mp but only want the raw at say 8 or 10mp
MR Fuji - Listen I would absolutely buy it but 31mp raw TOOOOOOO big!
Man, Step up and get a bigger hard drive and faster computer, It's 2014!
That's over processed, is it a painting, a photograph? I doubt that will sell with lightening in the image. Not a Grand Champion in my opinion. # 3 is far better! Outstanding image!
naththo: I shall pass, thanks. This will be a terribly nightmare to get image right with RAW software.
Yeah Right, Like your a Engineer! LOL
Very interesting idea, I have looked at the sample images, they are too grainy, soft, and too vignetted for me. Different strokes for different folks.
I guess my thinking is why would I want to use or buy a very expensive Hasselblad Lens, they are not cheap, and downgrade the image quality with a pretty heavy grain look. It seems it defeats the purpose and the original intent of the lens design.
Now if you could have a device that would be a digital back that produced say, 24 MPs or higher with very little grain and vignette, then I think you would really open up a new market, then one could apply the grain effect in post. If your Hasselnut is pretty inexpensive. then maybe existing Hasselblad camera and lens owners might like it for the grain effect.
I really think dpreview needs to update the video specs on all your reviewed cameras. I'm sure many viewers would like to see, more details like, What is the signal out, Progressive, Interlaced, is it 4.2.0, or 4.2.2, 8bit, 10bit, Compressed, Uncompressed, dirty video, or clean (No On screen Info).
What is the Mbps for each recording format? What is the audio recording format?Is the sensor info read by line scans or the whole sensor. CMon Man!
You need to get up to speed, there's a need for sure.
Even that big "H" looks horrendous!
Oh my God! That is butt Ugly!! Is it Pistol or a derringer! It looks like a redneck screwed on his pistol grips to it.
Will be an absolute flop! Gauranteed!
SETI: What a great surprise! Thanks =)
Personally, I don't care about great high ISO performance in stills, very seldom shoot at ISO 800 or higher. Now video is a little different. I might go to ISO 1600, maybe. In regards to Prints from stills, I have prints that I have made from 8 & 12 Megapixel Canon's that are 20x24 and 24X30 that are beautiful. So 16 MP is plenty for me. What has caught be surprise on the GH3 is the MFT Lens selection, absolutely Phenomenal! MFT isn't going away anytime soon, I can assure you that. I have a Sony NEX-7 and 2 lens's that are for sale, Cheap, because it's system lens are poor. The NEX-7 Cameras OK, limited video ability, time, quality, Overheats big time! Good stills thats it. Also, Black Magic has now adapted to the MFT with a live mount, with 2 cameras, I have the GH3 and the New Panny 12-35mm f2.8 OIS lens, what a fantastic piece of gear. I love the size! Love the WEIGHT REDUCTION compared to many DSLRs and especially Canon, and Nikon Lens's. Love the 12-35 lens very, very sharp!
BEWARE: If your thinking of wanting to use this camera for video!!All of the Nex cameras have major problems with sporadic overheat and shutdown issues that have not been resolved by Sony!
I wish DPReview would do some better testing on video of all there cameras, Video is becoming just as important as photos! Especially on the Web.
It says its shipping today, where can we get one?
Anyone got any ideas?
Thank God I have kept my Canon lens's! Was getting ready to sell them.Not NOW! Now I will sell my kit lens and the 16mm pancake, and get this adapter!
I love my 16-35mm L II 2.8! I also love my Tamron 28-75mm 2.8. Now I will order the Canon 100mm f2.8 Macro IS L lens this would make it a 150mm Macro at f2.8 with Image Stabilization, on a Sony Nex7 Yeah man! Now your talking.
Solarcoaster: I'm pretty sure Adobe could just make more money by requiring a dongle or "ignition key" to use its software, preventing piracy, rather than bilking people who are essentially donating them money for software they could pirate for free if they wanted.
Also, If you really want people to upgrade, Do something about the features you would offer, make them substantial, and cutting edge. I think the interface is so archaic, make it very intuitive to logic. I'm a firm believer in this business philosophy, Always give your customer more than what they are expecting, always price your products at a point that at least 75% of the market would say, Yeah not sure I need it, but at that price it's a NO Brainer, I'll get it! If you say we can't because of overhead and cost then it's time to slim down your companys OH, Times have changed, People are looking at spending there money a whole lot differently, today, and your not going to see a change back to the old way of spending unless our government makes some radical changes.
Adobe, If your reading this " Listen UP" YOUR making a big big mistake! Your prices are too HIGH! That's why there is so much piracy! I'll bet even in this country. If you were to lower your prices to something respectful, like $250.00 for a production suite, not $900! and then offer a flat $125.00 for all upgrades! You would not only keep many customers from jumping ship, but also rain in a bunch of people using pirated copies! Most people don't want the Cloud! It's too controlling! I will never use any cloud programs. If your worried about people not upgrading, then offer them up to 2 versions with out upgrades and then you have to upgrade@ the $250.00 pice in order to get back in to the $125.00 upgrade price mode. You would retain many customers, and upgrades! You could most likely drop Elements.Get Smart!
On my monitor, the red seems more orange than red. But a great capture!
Fuji, missed the boat again in my opinion, They could have captured a whole other market, and added value to their supposed targeted market, by simply giving you a battery option. Many, many people that shoot video, with the higher end DSLR's and even the M4/3 and now the newer mirrorless cameras would love to use this as a monitor with one of the above mentioned cameras.
It would be nice if you could catargories forsale items by MFG. Like Canon, Nikon, Pentax, ect. and also Lighting, Studio, Specialty and any others that you could think of. Take a look at Fred Mirandas forsale forum.
