Remember that Hassleblad lenses have been Fuji's for some years now.

On Fujifilm X-Pro1 preview (757 comments in total)

YEAH!!! it's not a movie camera!
But...a new lens mount? AGAIN?
Fuji's done that in the past with with: 35mm M43 locking screw thread,35mm X- mount 35mm.
The "release without lens" could be good news for using adapters and other lenses.
PLEASE, Fuji, tell me that's why you thought of that!

Francis Carver: X-S1 video capabilities (CON't):

Other specs of the Fuji X-S1 cracked me up a bit. Apparently the camera can do "HIGH SPEED MOVIE RECORDINGS." Great, right? Well, not so fast. It can shoot at 70fps but only in 640x480 pixel. It can also shoot at 120fps at 320x240. Finally, it can shoot at 200fps at 320x112 pixels. What a cruel joke on the part of Fujifilm, hmmm?

The Fuji X-S1's EVF is only 0.47-inch in size and the usual lower resolution (not like the Sony SLT a65/a77 OLED), and the LCD screen is also the low-rez 460K type. Light years from what Sony is giving you with their a65/a77, in other words.

Specs also fail to state whether the recording of video is at 30p or 60i. Also the manual fails to state whether you can play out the footage on both NTSC and PAL TVs?

Final assessment: camera looks okay for taking stills, although there are many larger sensor cameras out there now, at least of the M4/3 sensor type. But if the aim is mostly to shoot video -- pass on the X-S1.

Guys...get a movie camera. Even if Ron Howard is using Canon DSLR's for movies, I'll be convinced when he shoots HIS movies on one.
People argued about the SR sensor Fuji made, but is was better color and DR than anything around. Look at the photos (before any photoshop work) and THEN judge the camera.
I'm still waiting for something to give me what Velvia 100 gave me (I didn't have to process it myself either!)
