Though an interesting product in itself this pitch is waaaaaay too long.The boring video and voice doesn't appeal which will make it harder to sell his idea.
AbrasiveReducer: The only bad thing about this is that when companies start with the custom color, limited edition, laser-cut box, certificate of authenticity it usually means they were in a meeting, sales numbers weren't good enough and somebody came up with this idea.
If it goes well, mark my words, there will be X series anniversary editions, unique serial numbers saved for celebrities. I don't think you can gold plate these bodies but don't rule it out.
So you were at that meeting?
There is also the distinct possibility that they have thought - Why should all camera's be black?
People like to personalize things, to make it more of your own.
But you're probably stuck in time and still find that other people have to decide for you of what you should like or not.
Ednaz: I'm excited, I've found that blue cameras are much sharper than black ones.
So you are still driving a T-Ford - 'Black only' too?
Or you are just being a troll - trying to think you are just that littlebit smarter like the bully at school, while you are actually just making dumb remarks?
love_them_all: I was hoping the Cmos Sony sensor ver would be 30-40% cheaper than their CCD ver. But they are pretty much the same price.
Those costs are much bigger then you think.From a single wafer you may get 6 to 8 MF sensors while you probably produce 20FF sensors from it.
Size matters in calculating costs as well as numbers being made. Also there needs to be a complete manufacturing line to be set up for it.
peevee1: What does "Options for working with tilt-shift" mean?
That it can take tilt-shift lenses.TS lenses often tend to come further back into the mirrorbox.
Anstup ID: Is it possible to design mirrorless camera with medium-format sensor and Sony E mount?
Never - The image circle is just too small.
It seems that Sony people are now starting to believe that they actually own a Hasselblad - how pathetic!
Powered by Sony?
And why does such premium valued brand use low cost plastics for their body casing?
plasnu: In RAW, Magenta is extremely strange, why?
Thanks for the clarification.
Bijan Alpha: Fuji has the best body design and worst sensor
Its actually a smarter build then all other camera manufacturers use yabokkie.
With all regular sensor designs you need a optical low pass filter. The fuji sensor can do without giving you sharper images and better colour rendition and less chance of moire.
Too bad you don't understand the technology used.
jaygeephoto: Going back a bit in this "discussion"; I don't fully understand why using the Adobe Converter for Raw would make any difference because of Fuji's sensor pattern. It would seem to me that the correct parameters for Fuji's RAW output would be properly figured into Adobe's application. I use RAW conversion in both Photoshop and Lightroom - they both have their merits and minor drawbacks. I've never found a camera manufacturer's own conversion software to be as good as other third party applications. Set me straight on this if I am mistaken.
Read the following article and you know why there is a distinct difference in regular camera's that use a bayer pattern and fuji x-trans technology.
If you look clearly at the regular sensor pattern (bayer) used in conventional digital cameras in comparisson with the x-trans sensor pattern you will see a big difference in technology used.
This is why Adobe needs to adapt their software for reading the x-trans sensor output properly and why the current version of ACR/Lightroom engine outputs false colors and soft pictures for fuji x camera's.
The new 8.4 engine tackles this problem and will from now on work fine with fujifilm x-trans camera's.
Because of the processing method DPReview uses.If they had used the new ACR/LR8.4 editing module you would find more sharpness and much better colour rendition.
Too bad that DPreview did use the 'old' processing engine.
Couscousdelight: I'm not very impressed with the XT1's sensor performances :http://uppix.net/Ir2rfL.jpgThere is less noise, but details are blurred, the Fuji is the only camera where you can't read the paint tube's label. and what append to red & purple tones ?
You are drawing the wrong conclusion.The things you see are not caused by the camera, but are caused by DPreviews processing.
Its a shame DPreview didn't use the ACR/LR 8.4 Beta - If they did you would have noticed how sharp and colourful the images really are.
HetFotoAtelier: I like my Nikon Df ! and my Fuji X-pro1 with OVF 100% more better viewfinder! not this camera with EVF!
Many people think quite differently about this camera then you do. Most people even say that the FujiFilm X-T1 is the Df done right.
I can't do proper focus peeking with an OVF of the Df, but I can with the X-T1's EVF. The magnification factor of the X-T1 is .77 vs. .7 for the Df which is a very noticeable difference and a big advantage over the viewfinder found in de Df.
Be honest, you really haven't tried the X-T1 yet.Seems like you are having buyers regret...
jhinkey: Maybe it's the processing, maybe it's the apertures used, but it seems the sharpness down at the pixel level is not all that great and I see sharpening halos around many objects. At these apertures the sharpness across the frame seems pretty even at 10mm (even into the corners) which is no small feat for sure.The ghosting/flare characteristics seem pretty darned good for an UWA zoom!
It is the way DPreview processes their images.The new LR/ACR 8.4 update will adress this behaviour.
Remember that Fuji is not using the bayer pattern system, common in most digital camera's.
The editing engine of LR/ACR is due to the problem you experience.
IMHO not a good way from DPreview to show these pictures in this way as it unfortunately gives people false information regarding the quality of the lens/camera.
Couldn't DPReview have used the new LR/ACR 8.4 beta before showing these pictures?
The camera is tack sharp, but because of the way DPreview processes their images they look soft.
mpgxsvcd: Why don't they just ship them D610s?
After the replacement of the shutter you have a D610, though it will say D600 on your camera.
Keep your free repair bill safe though as it is the only way to assure you can resell your D600 for a fair price.
aramgrg: Well, it's too late, I have already bought 6d :)
If Sony will survives their own crisis - Otherwise you will be left with a piece of photography junk. Sony might be broke before you can blink your eyes.
Zeisschen: that is the end of NIKON...
@Photonuts - You know that Sony stock has a junk status advisory on Wallstreet?
Sony is nearly broke and their Imaging department isn't making any money for them either.
Its said that their PS4 gaming console sells well though.

Now when can all D800 / D800E users expect a replacement or realignment of the AF module and/or sensor?
Just a Photographer: The s stands for Software update?
Come on Nikon what kind of update is this really?
The BIG question is. Is it really a new sensor or is it a Jedi mind trick?
How would you feel if this update is nothing more then a software update? People wouldn't be pleased to pay for a firmware update.
