Retzius: Too much PP in these images

;)

I wonder which film simulation app they used. Whichever one it is, it's not very realistic.

I don't know what all the fuss is about - I've never had a problem with spots.

In reply to:

backayonder: Can someone please summarise these 1392 posts as I think I need to buy this camera

Summary:

60% of posts say it's a flawless design, has a perfectly located ISO dial for calm and measured operation, and can be used for any task.

39% of posts say it's such a fundamentally flawed design, with a throwback location for the ISO dial which destroys modern levels of usability, and it cannot be used for anything.

1% of posts give useless summaries

mcshan: Thank you Fuji! You are the greatest and you really care. I hope that I can own one grip or even several. Thank you.

Mr Shigetaka Komori, with the greatest respect you really should resist posting here.

This is clear evidence that the market for mirrorless systems is waning and 2014 will see a shift back to nice big DSLRs

In reply to:

rfsIII: I find it very interesting that so many people now say they need to buy two camera systems, one for "serious" shooting and one for casual shooting as though you could split the two.

But my real question is whether this is a genuine need or something that we've been coaxed into believing by the camera industry. And why? Isn't one system enough? Presuming you're not a full-time professional, what is the unfulfilled psychological need we're addressing by owning two camera systems rather than one? I love new gear, and love that we have so many choices, but this seems excessive.

It's essential that I always have two camera systems at any time - one for using when I'm out and about, and the other on eBay.

Nikon should remove the memory card slot and provide internal memory for 36 shots - transfer to a computer triggers a 10 second film rewind audio clip.

On Fast and wide: Fujifilm releases XF23mm F1.4 R for X system news story (219 comments in total)
In reply to:

Aivar: who knows what is the number of maximum wide open aperture in compare with full frame?

In terms of light gathering ability for the same shot, it's the same (e.g. 1/250 f1.4 for the same shot on both formats).
In terms of depth of field for the same shot, this is around f2 I believe.

I love great design and I really want to love this unique camera...

...but...

A few months back I had a go at 3D modelling for the first time. I tried to use the primitives provided (cube, sphere, cone, etc) to build a watch casing that I had in mind. I then played with some basic features such as edge rounding.

No matter what I did though, the result looked like a slightly bloated and overly rounded imitation of what I had in my mind.

This camera reminds me of that experience.

Hope it raises millions though.

fortwodriver: Take note measurebators and arm-chair critiques! These photos are a fantastic example of what people can do when they get out and USE their cameras!

Use the camera? Wouldn't that affect the resale value?

In reply to:

ijustloveshooting: Fuji X series use 16.2mp sony nex5N-5R-6 sensor right?

The sensor is made by Sony who subcontract to Toshiba, who buy in the specialist colour filter array from IBM under license from Polaroid.

Actually I made that up, but since all the other nerdie posts were getting lots of likes I thought I'd join in.

In reply to:

doctorbza: Can anyone tell me if the X-Pro1 will display 35mm equivalent frame lines for this lens?

It will.

In fact, Fuji could make any focal length they liked and the framelines would appear.

Great article, but in the final thoughts you might want to change 'detachable lenses' to 'detachable LCDs''

In reply to:

Miwok: Does anyone complain about the last rolex or other mont blanc. There is a market for this kind of items, if you don't like it, just forget it. Hasselblad give work for peoples, and probably pay them very well. So, just live them alone if is not your cup of tea.

To make this analogy valid, Rolex would need to fit Submariner bezels to Seiko diving watches, and Mont Blanc glue white stars to the end of Zebra pens.

Now if you had mentioned Leica compacts and red dots....

The Hasselblad design team seems to have a preoccupation with how things fit in the palm of their hands.

On Fujifilm revises upcoming X-Pro1 and X-E1 firmware updates news story (92 comments in total)
In reply to:

Paul Doe: Any chance we will see some of these improvements also in X100? Or maybe Fuji don't care anymore, since they are selling X100S?

Is there a technical reason why X100 can't have Q menu, improved manual focusing (like X100S), or focus peaking?

- you can't have the Q menu without the Q button, unless it replaces an existing button's function
- you can't have AF like the X100S as there are no AF sensors built into the sensor
- you could have focus peaking, but as this has only been done for Fuji's non-Bayer sensors so far I guess they might have to reengineer it?
