On Fujifilm X-T10 First Impressions Review preview (516 comments in total)

One option I would also like (because it would be time saving and because I too love Fuji's Jpg renderings, ) would be the ability to shoot RAW AND have as many of the film simulations brackets as I liked. Memory is cheap. In camera conversions are too slow and fiddly to perform. I know some might wonder why one would want such a blanket film simulation bracketing, but that's a bit like asking a sports shooter why they use motor drive.

Do any of the newer models provide this option?

On Fujifilm X-T10 First Impressions Review preview (516 comments in total)

What I would like to know in a review is the handling experience comparisons between the various models

I have dipped my toe in the X=trans waters with the M1, and love the results, and like the reviewer have pretty much settled for using just the 27mm lens(99% of the time).

BUT (and it's a big one) the handling of the M1 leaves a lot to be desired. Buttons etc are positioned such that the are inadvertently changed on a frustratingly regular basis. I have changed my grip such that I press the shutter with my thumb to stop it pressing the controls on the back but it's not comfortable

I would love a X=trans that doesn't have this problem, but which?? I wish the reviewer would cover this aspect in detail

Stephan Def: I am trying to understand what the compelling argument for Fujifilm is, scratching my head. Megapixels matter, if its just only for the cropping capability alone. 16MP seems not to be cutting edge stuff anymore, except if they are on smartphone camera.

I used to think what matters is what the image looks like that comes out of the Camera. Strangely for me, so many here are going on about if the Camera itself is nice looking or not. And so on.

take an SD card to the store and ask them to let you plain with it for a while

I guess it's quite funny that some voted that they had it or already own it
Silly but amusing nonetheless

paul simon king: Just been told that LR6 perpetual licence won't get any upgrades should any be released

Can anyone corroborate this this?

Just to be clear: I wasn't assuming that the standalone wouldn't get the usual updates but was expressing my concern that another said it wouldn't (apparently via a Scott Kelby blog)

I heard it from Ian Barber on the digitalmonochrome forum

http://bthedigitalmonochromeforum.runboard.com/t201628

The problem here really is not whether it is true or not but that I should have so little faith in Adobe's support fro standalone versions atht I was prepared to belive it

GaryJP: They might be assuring us they are going to keep Lightroom as a standalone product, but it is a nightmare to get through their site without being signed up to a Creative Cloud you don't want. They are just pushing the standalone right to the periphery.

Liars. As we always knew.

after a lovely walk in the sun feeling morre patient so looked ahgain and yeah found it - for UK- go to uk site, sign in, scroll to VERY bottom of page where in small text it says 'products ' etc in grey, click on products - then the options come up

Once you upgrade you might find like me that ist cant see your current version (no eligable version found; so you'll need to make sure you have your current LR version serila nos handy

just spent a bit more time trying to find the UK perpectual licence upgrade. Simply cannot find it despite having exhausted all effoerts on the UK site which , in all practical senses, means that the upgrade doesnt exist and actually I can't upgrade.

they want to phase out non CC cumstomers- fair enough, they are succeeding- good luck to them

It isn't the end of the world. 5.7 works fine.Thats enough time wasted.

GreenPig: Many people, myself included, with AMD graphics processors are not able to see the GPU improvements. The feature is turned off due to the following error ...
"Check OpenGL support: Failed"
The adobe forums have many posts about this with a wide range of cards affected.

But apart from that,everything else is working well.

My favourite so far .... HDR images that don't look like "overdone HDR" ... :)
With a final RAW file giving a full +/- 10 EV range. You can then tweak it to look like an "overdone HDR" if that's what you want

except it doesnt work fine for perpetual Ps licence holers- in fact it HAS to be turned off - unless you want all the errors that go with it being on

same experience here_(given the link from LR5.7 update options in program) OK maybe not a nightmare but if I still couldn't find it after 10 mins of looking it is at the very least a PITA

Wouldn't it be nice if the prograp linked to an option to update to version 6 and , knowing I am linking froma licenced version, offer me the upgrade path and price, instead of trying to force feed me the CC version

perhaps if they changed their attitude to me I might change my attitude to them

In reply to:

paul simon king: why nothing from RRS?

I only mention it because I know some others (elsewhere )boycotted RRS for that reason- me-I don't care-and if people do have strong views then I understannd
no afenda

I genuinely wondered whether that was a reason - no one said what the reason was - so I asked

I also only asked why no RRS in the review as it didnt say in the review that it was a revow about ones you couldnt easily test in shops etc ( though not sure how that applies to RSS)

Anyway - it was just a simple question not a condemnation or an axe to grind- relax- its not the end of the world - yet
lol
