Matt1645f4: Can we please stop with the lower marks for bloody poor video!!! this site is called Digital Photography review, it you insist on scoring cameras down because of video make it a totally different section or start a Digital Video Review Site, i'm bored about the lengthy failings a camera his in its lack of video......
I'm not sure how to respond? It's just a score, man. Cameras don't have egos, so just in case you were worried--no cameras were harmed in the making of this review ;) Seriously though, a camera isn't going to perform better for you because DPR gave it a "gold" award. If you like a camera, like it for your own reasons, not because the internet said so.
Auto-focus whaaat? Who needs to waste money on a feature that anyone can do themselves! /snark/
Honestly though, some people use video. I'm sorry that you don't see the utility.There happens to be a large market for it, one being dominated by some of Fuji's competition (Panasonic & Sony).
slncezgsi: ... so the m4/3 is going viral ;)
What you failed to notice about the companies that joined m4/3 is many of them have different needs that you, perhaps? Please read and be educated.http://www.sansmirror.com/newsviews/m43-expands.html
SETI: If only Adobe can do full support of X-Trans CMOSNow it's deal killer for me. Lightroom can't do well with Fuji RAWs
I admire Fuji for thinking outside the box with their hardware and designs.
But, those in the market for this type of camera--like myself--rely on Adobe products in their workflow. For example, I only shoot RAW.
This shortcoming in image processing makes Fuji cameras (XF1 included) not an option.
Anyone seeing what this enthusiast compact offers to the segment that doesn't already exist? Just looking as the basic hardware of sensor, lens, processor...
Sensor:Larger than 1/1.7"? No.Multi-aspect ratio? No.
Lens:Faster aperture? No.Wider FOV (e.g. 24mm equivalent)? No.Longer telephoto? No.
Can't say I'm very excited about this one on paper, though it's still early to know the full story.
