Nerkdergler: From a purely aesthetic perspective, Fuji seem to have targeted folks who take themselves too seriously to be seen holding a Sony. Interestingly, it looks like this has flowed through into the functional design too. It would not surprise me if there is some truth to the rumor that they 'made it big on purpose'. And yet they can't find room for a flash, tilt/touch screen, proper movie mode, etc - all useful features, but not consistent with its retro-chic "real camera for real photographers" aesthetic appeal. Not suggesting for an instant that it won't be a fantastic camera - I just dream of a day when manufacturers spend more time designing the best and most flexible tools they can, rather than deliberately hobbling them to segment the market. Yeah, I know. :)

they dont take themself too serious, but for some folks, like me, photography is too emotional as to spend money on cameras built by tv companies and walkman companies ^^

also if some guys, like me, want classic styled minimalistic cameras with prime lenses, is not because they want to be hip, its because thats what people allways used even before everyone posts mtf charts around the inernet

and of course they made it big on purpose, because first its aimed on western male photographers, and second the best manual control layout is wacked if there is not enough space to place the controls ... easy as that ..

there was always a big group of photographers that wanted to go back to the basics. i used an fm2 until i bought the d700 even if it didnt had af it was still everything i needed, why should i want a touchscreen and 100 submenus if i can use a leica m8 or fuji x100? ^^

its not the new hip poser that demands those features its the guys that didi it long before the hip poser :)

sockie: I would like to know if the X mount lenses project an image circle large enough to cover a full frame sensor? Certainly, for me, that would explain the slightly odd focal legnths and maximum apertuers of the three proposed lenses that we have heard about so far! And has already been hinted at by Fujifilm, this camera is just the first in a line of such Xpro cameras.

Fujifilm certainly recognised the importance of a fast lens and depth of field control with the X100, so for me, I find the current X-pro lens line up a bit odd. Perhaps it is wishfull thinking, but with the aparant iminent demise of Kodak's sensor division, will we see a Leica branded version of the X-pro 1 with an M mount at the Photokina show? Or even better, a full frame version? Will this be the start of a new Leica + Fujifilm tie up? Will a Leica M10 and equivalent Fuji camera be borne from this? Yes, perhaps wishfull thinking, but I have my fingers tightly crossed!!!

i thought about that to, but 17mm away from the sensor, and ff coverage for a system that trys to be as small as possible? ^^

dont think so

remember the sensor/lens distance has to stay the same if they want to introduce a ff body

and please, dont pair up with leica, thats the worst that could happen

pair up with ricoh, or pair up with zeiss/cosina voigtländer, thats cool

but leica? then its gone the good cheap leica-like camera

inevitable crafts studio: i like it !

only things i dont like so far is the rubber grip on the left side, that just looks cheap kind of an olympus EPx and focus by wire is a totally nogo for sure.

so the only possibility is buy the body and use voigtländer lenses like the 35 1.4 and probably buy one of the wider fuji lenses for having autofocus for snapshots.

for me i would still rather buy a used M8 no matter which version instead of the fuji. my affair with the x100 was just too much to trust fuji even if the specs look promising.

but i guess when the fuji comes out, m8 prizes drop to the bottom, so it would be around the same bodyprize for the fuji and a used m8 lenses are also on par with voigtlaender, and overall performance of the m8 is definitly weaker than the fuji.

but i get the best viewfind and focusing system in the world (for me :)) better built quality and the option to upgrade to fullframe in a few years when m9 prizes drop

also, for the last 18years i used a manual nikon with filmspeeds never above 400iso/asa ... i own a d700 since it came out, and seriously thats the best camera i used so far ... but with fast lenses and a stable hand, i never shoot above 800iso ...

iam out of the megapixel/mega-ISO race, i just want my fm2 back and one or two lenses :)

Tim Woodward: Great new camera Fuji, can you now do the baby version smaller, with just the EVF as I can't for the life of me think of any use for an optical viewfinder?! Wonderful though, and if the baby version is going to be under the price of the Sony NEX-7 then that should really shake up the market! Great to see such investment, must represent a huge belief in a lifting of this awful financial gloom we are under at the moment.

there are people, like me, that waited AGES to get cameras with OVFs, and companies started to add an EVF to that, so the common tourist dont gets offended by looking through it and not seeing any Lcd screen inside.

and the first thing those people are crying for, is to skip the OVF to make it cheaper???

sorry but are you drunk buddy? ^^

if there is anything to skip then its the EVF ^^

cant there be one single company that makes serious tools without listening to guys that want to own a tool, that should feel like an iphone???

ah i forgot ... ricoh, leica, nikon

please fuji ... try to be part of that, try to make your real expensive camera a real camera again. just charge so much that normal customers wont buy it, give them a camera that looks similar and sell it to them, but at least make one camera line thats for people like me :) like nikon with the d7/300 d3/4 etc

i didnt like the user interface, the firmware updates were a joke, and i didnt like a LOT of stuff with this camera, thats discussed over and over again in all kind of forums.

i very much liked and still like the concept, the image quality the fixed prime the viewfinder etc ... but compared to a ricoh, its a poor designed and made product with absolutely no to very little customer support.

for me noise is no problem, but bad implementation of manual focus is. so when i would buy the xpro1 as i said, i would only use voigtländer or other 3rd party lenses, so i thought, why not buying the body that those lenses where made for?! i mean concerning focus aids etc. = m8

would i would like is a ricoh grd5 with a m43 sensor and a fixed 28mm prime and built in glass viewfinder, a metal body and weather sealing, ability to shoot fullHD 24-120 frames, even if the 120 fps is only for a few seconds, timelapse, and a second one that does the same with 50mm

hopefully it shows that they only need 16Mpixel because they bring out a MX format called megaX aka midium format :)

super update nikon !!

it shows how far the d3 was, and the d700, when you consider the minor updates after nearly 3 years.

also i like the 16Mp

only thing i dont like is no screenprodector, dont tell me how tough the glass is, no screenprotector is no screenprotector.

On SLR Magic announces HyperPrime CINE 50mm T0.95 M-mount lens news story (108 comments in total)
In reply to:

Jogger: Why wouldnt they just make this a PL mount.. i doubt any Leica owners are going to consider a lens from "SLR Magic".

i think its strange too, seems that the M-mount alone is nowadays a factor for buying things .. oh yeah it "could" be used on an M9 ... oh really ? ... oh really ! hehe

what makes it so strange to me is the focus calibration etc needed for rangefinder coupeling ... if 90 percent use it with adapters, it would be better and cheaper to just make no coupeling at all i guess

Sam Carriere: Does anyone else get really tired of attention payed by sites like this to announcements of products that will be available nine months from now or, more realistically, in a year? Manufacturers can dream up any hype they want and the reviewers, lemming-like, respond with publicity.

yeah for sure, but you know sometimes i get really bored and i like photography ... just dont click on any ads, banners, shoplinks in articles etc on those sites to make sure they dont benefit from my bordomeness hehe i rather google it myself or retype links in the browser than clicking on them ... brave new world, welcom to the year 2012 hehe

In reply to:

toomanycanons: Interesting. First I read the exploits of Matt Dunham. The guy has a good eye and has the latest equipment. Can I make the assumption that AP pays for his kit? I'm going to, even if I'm wrong. He gets flown around the world on assignment, has to get the shot (or he wouldn't even have this job) but basically has a photography job as opposed to freelance.

Then I read the exploits of another photog in the same position as Matt. "Here's where we want you to be shooting this event" sort of job. Again, the guy is good.

Then I read about the exploits of a third photog, a "freelancer". Pays for his own gear, has to come up with what event he wants to attend (while paying his own expenses) and then tries to sell his stuff to whoever will buy it at a reduced price.

All three are photogs with skilz, two of them have paying jobs and the third, just as qualified, wonders where his next paycheck is coming from.

so whats the point of this posting ?

Robert Koren: I have takef time to to test it on some work I do. the image was 1200*800. I was using two layers. and after two hours I just erse the project. in desktop photoshop it takes 10min to do the job.
whta was the bigest problems I have :
in first it was wery bad performance.
in second wery strange work with layers
in third , theagic selection is useless and manual selection is preaty hard by finger
and at last I was wery disapointed about the brush and look of the brush, it was always to hard at the edges so it was unable to do soft transitions

could you explain what you tried to do and show us the picture you tried to work on ?

two hours instead of 10 min is tough ^^

if its not in photoshop touch, i guess not, as this is a photoshop touch review ^^

jmmgarza: Five inch prints at 300 dpi. Fun for small prints only. Great for web email, facebook, etc.

and if it would support 50Mpixel, would you use a 10" screen and a 1cm^2 mouse arrow to do you professional work ? ^^

In reply to:

daMatrix: This example just proofs that tablets are nowhere near laptop /desktop photo editing.

no it proves that

1) its hard to develop for android, because you cant be sure what tablet/OS version the user uses

2)that adobe doesnt care about tablet users, beccause they sell their normal software for around 100x of what they charge for their mobile softwar

3)that adobe thinks its enough to just be adobe and call their product photoshop to attract buyers

4)that often there are way better apps from small developers than from a major studios

5)sorry for that, but that apple rules the tablet market, i mean ok ps is not out for iOS so far, but we all know, if apple says it runs fluently on an iOS device, it just does ^^

6) and last but not least, i use a d700 and a d3, and i can connect my camera to my ipad2, download the RAWs, edit them with filterstorm and upload them from anywhere on the go, and since i have an ipad i dont take my laptop with me, and customers get their pictures available online before they are at home. sometimes before they leave the location^^

James Van Artsdalen: Since when is 1600 x 1600 "real high resolution"? I have never owned a digital camera with resolution that low! Maybe a camera-phone years ago; I no longer remember.

I did try to use it with a Toshiba Thrive but I was not able to pan after zooming the image. There are no tutorials or instructions on *using* the app, only on how to make various edits, and nothing on how to view or inspect the picture to decide what, if anything, to do.

Everything is driven by unlabeled icons. You won't get anywhere unless you're already proficient with Photoshop/desktop.

I tried it on a friends tablet, dont know which one ^^but if the performance, AND the way the app handles everything, is the same on the future iOS release, then i stay with filterstorm ^^

i dont know if filterstorm is available for android, but on iOS it simply ROCKS, in fact i would use filterstorm on my mac instead of PS for photos if it would exist for OSX

I dont understand what adobes plan is for touch devices anyway, to me all productivity apps they released so far are crap, adobe ideas, adobe PS express, PS touch.

especially adobe ideas, for 5 € you get 1! pencil, thats it ..^^

i think the only major company that really invests time and ideas for tablets is Autodesk. if they bring out sketchbook design for iOS i will try to marry the boss of this comany hehe

In reply to:

Tape5: Human vision doesn't do any HDR. It is a law of nature that if you want to see something really well, you may just not be able to see other things so well! This can be used creatively by some. Personally I cannot see why anyone would desire to see it all indiscriminately inside a frame. Isn’t a frame after all a tool to hide what is not inside it?

we obviously dont do hdr, because hdr means we make under and over exposed pictures and combine them to a new picture, this new picture has to have a bigger dynamic range than possible with one picture. thats hdr

we dont do this

we just have a bigger dynamic range, and better processor, so we dont need to do that :)
