On Fujifilm teases upcoming SLR-style X system camera article (919 comments in total)
In reply to:

nathondetroit: If you build fast primes, they will come...

Sure, but Fujifilm will quickly find out you need "affordable" primes also in order to gain more traction among the enthusiast market.

fliegertiger: price ???? any indication? any????

Based on Fuji Rumors:

*Body only: €1200
*Body + 18-55mm: €1600
*Body + 18-135mm: €1800

The 18-135mm will likely be the f3.5-5.6 variety.

retro76: The one thing I cannot figure out: Reviewers absolutely love Fuji cameras, but consumers do not - why is that ?

Fujifilm were a bit late to the mirrorless market. Also, their cameras generally are a bit slow to focus and lack the video capabilities compared to the competition.

They have addressed some of these deficiencies in their recent releases I think.

AFAIK, their X100/S continue to sell well--even among pros.

$1800 for the body only? If true, Fujifilm pricing of the X-T1 would be higher than Sony's full-frame A7.

I clicked through just to see the girls. What lens are we talking about again?

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-GM1 Review preview (354 comments in total)

I generally agree with this reviewer on the GM1.

During the day I shoot with DSLRs but for casual shooting, I used to carry the S95 with me everywhere. No longer. I recently picked up a GM1 and it immediately won me over.

The GM1 fits in my jacket pocket easily. Along with the retractable kit zoom and the 20mm f1.7 pancake lens, I am good to go for most day-to-day encounters.

This camera is stylish and a lot of fun to use. It is also backed by an ever-growing lens collection.

Kudos to Panasonic for producing this mini marvel.

I thought posting flame bait was against the rules.

This IS DPR, where many news items are a day late and a dollar short.

Nonetheless, a breathtaking piece of video.

I personally think TIME left out the most discussed and indelible photo of 2013:

Miley Cyrus' twerking at the MTV Video Music Awards.

On Canon announces EOS M2 in Japan article (616 comments in total)

I think Canon made a huge mistake with the EOS M2 by forgoing a killer pink version.

On DPReview on CreativeLIVE article (142 comments in total)

I watched bits of the webcast live and then upon rebroadcast.

Good information in a relaxed setting.

Very nice effort by the DPR team for a maiden project. I hope to see more in the future.

Digital Suicide: For social photography people use phones.

In reality, this is the norm....frequently even for photo enthusiasts and pros.

I had my S110 and smartphone with me at an evening holiday house party yesterday.

Guess which one I grabbed for shooting, uploading, and sharing?

Direct link | Posted on Dec 1, 2013 at 12:27 UTC

Is there really a need for this article, when the ones you guys published only a few days ago on enthusiast compacts and high-end pocketable compacts will suffice? Just saying.

Perhaps a year-in-review of smartphones for social photography makes more sense in this category.

On Entry-Level Mirrorless Camera Roundup 2013 article (95 comments in total)
In reply to:

mad marty: Entry level cameras should be cheap and two of the winners are just damn expensive.
The Samsung NX1100 and the Nex-3n are real entry level cameras with under 300 Euro.
I would never recommend a camera which costs twice as much to a beginner. That's just no entry level.

The buy-in for 2 of the top 3 "entry level" mirrorless cameras is high indeed:
X-M1, $700
GM1, $750

Not sure how the typical smartphone user or point-and-shooter will see value here and go all in.

On DPReview Gear of the Year Part 3: Olympus OM-D E-M1 article (396 comments in total)

I don't own an EM1 but from what I can gather Olympus seemed to have hit a home run with this one.

It looks like video could be improved and the camera could use a nip and tuck.

Overall, a well-deserved selection among the top gear of 2013.

On DPReview on CreativeLIVE article (142 comments in total)

Great concept, DPR. Looking forward to your live webcast on Monday.

Question for DPR team and/or expert panel:

Will DSLRs ultimately survive the technological surge from mirrorless cameras? If so, will they be relegated to a niche market for mainly professional photographers who want larger bodies, fast lenses, and a well-established ecosystem?

On Camera roundups 2013: What to buy and why article (286 comments in total)
In reply to:

photo nuts: There seems to be a massive push by DPReview to promote mirrorless cameras. Just saying. :)

I would not lay blame on DPR but rather the MFT fanboys who are pushing for the premature demise of DSLRs.

Where I do quibble with DPR is their seemingly incessant showcasing of the Lumia 1020 that is downright cringe-worthy.

These camera categories are exceedingly simple and straightforward.

I can explain them to a non-camera friend as quickly as I can DPR's ratings score.
