  • Commented on Fujifilm X-T10 Review preview

    I agree with that; professional photographers will stick to their DSLRs for now anyway, if only for the extended battery life and range of glassware. I bought a cheap X-Pro1 for travel and kicking...

  • Commented on Fujifilm X-T10 Review preview

    Evaluative. I've seen worse, but the problem is clearly and obviously that the firmware is designed to underexpose and then amplify using the camera's strange DR modes. I think I can see what Fuji...

    My X-Pro 1 underexposes too, and if memory serves, so did the X100S. Check the histogram when you chimp and compensate accordingly.

  • Commented on Fujifilm X-T10 Review preview

    The old Sony 16MP (which still graces the Ricoh GR) does have some magic to it. Some people have noted a slightly hazy look to the 24MP one in the A6000 etc. Samsung's new 28MP BSI sensor is...

  • Commented on Fujifilm X-T10 Review preview

    Well, I think that's partly because the X-T10 is pretty keenly priced. Probably because Fuji know the sensor is showing its age a bit.

  • Commented on Fujifilm X-T10 Review preview

    I does work with RAW files. If you expose for the highlights - and mind, whatever camera you use, the success of this depends on exposing as far to the right as you can without clipping - you can...

    The X-Pro cannot even hold a candle to the D810. It makes nice enough images, but don't get carried away!

  • Commented on Fujifilm X-T10 Review preview

    Well, quite. I'm not a sports or wildlife photographer; it's fine. If you do make a habit of shooting moving subjects, get a DSLR instead.

  • Commented on Fujifilm X-T10 Review preview

    The A6000 is cheaply made compared with these Fujis, and the sensor output is a bit noisy. Unless you really need the AF performance, a strong case can be made for preferring the Fuji, especially...

  • Commented on Fujifilm X-T10 Review preview

    It's adequate if you don't make large prints of things containing lots of high frequency detail. If you do, then you'll probably prefer a higher resolution sensor. I print A3+ and can see the...

  • Commented on Fujifilm X-T10 Review preview

    Nice enough camera and sensibly priced. I would say Fuji's real advantage over other mirrorless APS-C cameras is the quality of some of their lenses. The problem, of course, is the 16 MP X-Trans,...

  • Worth knowing, but any lens will collect dust over time unless it's very well sealed, and this internal dust seems to be completely invisible in photographs.

  • They really need to stop these blunders...

  • I was just about to comment on that too. It'd be interesting to see the Otus/5DS combo in the comparison! Flase colour aside, I'm mostly impressed by the 5DSR's image quality from what I've seen so...

  • Hmm, not a massive leap forward to my eyes...

  • Dimit - the answer is to have the OPTION, so that the user can select lossy or lossless compression according to what they require of the image. Lossy is fine for the kids' sports day, but not so...

  • Eric - well, we'll see. But manufacturers with far more limited in-house technical firepower than Sony have managed it...

  • I won't buy an A7RII until they deliver lossless RAW. It should be perfecly possible, and is long overdue. I'd really like to see a firmware update bringing lossless 14 bit to the original A7R too...

  • Mine was away for a month just for a sensor clean. Definitely poor compared to my experiences with Sony and Nikon.
