On Fujifilm X-T1 Review preview (488 comments in total)
In reply to:

JDOnrust: Does somebody know if the X-T1 can make full size photo's with the interval timer?

Yes, it can do this for full-sized photos. It cannot, however, combine them into a movie in-camera.

In reply to:

DDWD10: Interesting. Same sensor as the D7100 but it maintains better uniformity at super-high ISOs, avoiding the bottom-edge purple amp glow completely. I wonder what other factors could affect this phenomenon.

Ah, thanks. I now realize that Sony and Toshiba both make 24 MP APS-C sensors.

In reply to:

codeNsnap: Any news of a fast 23mm from Pentax ? Would have considered K3 over Fujifilm XT-1 if there was a fast 35mm equivalent option for K3.

I returned the X-T1 oddly enough because of two issues that Fuji has now fixed - the light leak and the poor directional button feel. I kept the XF 14mm around because I do plan on getting another X-T1 after the price drops a little bit. Dual systems has its advantages, with the Pentax providing in-body SR for some nice 3rd party glass that wouldn't have it otherwise. The wider native ISO range and faster top SS speed vs. the X-T1 are advantages as well.

Yes, the Sigma is a big heavy lens. If you're looking for something compact that is somewhat close to the Fuji 23/1.4, perhaps I could recommend the Sigma 30mm f/1.4 "Art"?

For that role, I'm going with the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 for my K-5 IIs when it's available. When I returned my X-T1 I began to realize that Pentax really had nothing to compete with the sharp & fast XF Fujinon primes.

In reply to:

Meuh: "The camera does offer sensor shift-based shake reduction (Movie SR) during video capture"

The k3 loses the mechanical shake reduction in video found in the k5 in favor of electronic based (movie SR) which isn't as good and is prone to artifacts (one of the reason's I haven't yet update).

I wish they would update the firmware to enable the option of mechanical SR in video as I don't care about the noise it makes when doing video as sound is recorded externally anyway for the stuff I do.

I don't much care for using SR on my K-5 IIs during video. It clatters around too much and you hear it... although, yes, if you're using an external mic you'd get around that issue.

On Chinese government orders Nikon to stop selling D600 news story (227 comments in total)
In reply to:

codeNsnap: In contrast this is how Fujifilm reacted within about a week of the XT-1 flare reports -

http://www.fujifilmusa.com/support/ServiceSupportProductContent.do?dbid=881615&prodcat=879919&sscucatid=664270

I'm not sure if Nikon will learn anything out of this D600 debacle.

Yeah, the orb issue was dragged out for far too long, and it was, IMO, a more serious issue than the X-T1 light leak.

They replaced my X10, but I had to fork over $40+ in shipping charges to send the old one in.

In reply to:

Francesco De Lorenzo: I much like the very good sensor and camera features. But it is worth to invest in a camera that could get old very quickly due to the spread of the full frame?

It depends on your needs, but for me, I find Fuji's approach fulfills my requirements. The 16MP X-Trans sensor punches above its size in terms of noise and DR and the XF lens lineup includes some very attractive and sharp fast primes, with the selection growing all the time.

Galbertson: All reviewers say x-t1 not good for video. What in specs says this?

Manual video exposure control is definitely something that X-users will be requesting for a future FW update. My Pentax Q has this, for cryin' out loud!

moimoi: Shutter vibration that makes blurry images, have you forgotten dpreview?

It is a HUGE con.

I thought that was implied by the phrasing of "shaking up the market".

Zvonimir Tosic: Tilting screen, same image processor and AF as the K-3 DSLR?
Dual SD slots? Weather sealing too? Perhaps even video recording, using some fantastic MF glass?
Sounds delicious. If they pull out video somehow, this will be awesome!

What if the ol' 645D gets the same fire sale closeout deals that other Pentax's usually get? Ohh baby!

jimrpdx: So that's why the K-3 review is taking so long - the shooter preparing a "shooters report" hasn't returned yet! :-)

Looks like Fuji has found its place - good for them.

Coincidentally, the Yeti was hired by Pentax to field test the K3II.

See Rico Pfirstinger's First Look for plenty of horse pictures. He used the X-T1 and 56/1.2.

I think in general, the proliferation of digital media and websites like this has made it a LOT harder for manufacturers to ignore problems like this.

Fuji replaced my orb-ridden X10 with a new one with no problems. It took them a while to cave though.
