DrawnByLight: You disrespectful punks. Before you mouth off about who the photographers are I would suggest having a look at their portfolio. These are among the first images posted anywhere, hence the number of hits and Christian's server crashing yesterday. I doubt Christian or Michael intended for them to go viral as they did. If you have a look around the rest of their websites you will undoubtedly see why Christian is one of the most respected landscape photographers in Australia and why Michael is a world renowned travel photographer who shoots for Lonely Planet among other publications.
I agree the images are not of the same calibre of their normal work, they are from the looks of them, images that they snapped while getting used to settings and handling, and in all likelihood never intended to even get posted back to Fujifilm. I take the same sort of snaps when I am playing with a new body or lens and I never intend for those shots to win awards either.
Criticism was directed towards the images the link provided. I criticized it.....based on the photos that was presented to show what the new X-PRO1 could do.
I believe that most people did the same.
Do we al have tol start acting like cows in a herd ?
Are we supposed to say 'great job' even though we knew otherwise?
I think you should really change and have a more open mind.
Folks are giving their honest opinion of the images. At least we should respect this.
Fuji is introducing their new flagship camera, DPReview put this on their front page....
The best image was a man chugging down a cold one....
C'mon now.....after a few cold ones, my Sony P&S with image stabilization is a better suited tool for that occassion....
A perfect example of a good camera on the hands of bad photographers. Just plain horrible.
Anyone knows of a paint place that will paint my x100 black ? How much ?
