ZAnton: Samsung... good in a digital technologies, but total loosers in optics.
Seriously...they makes some really good NX lenses.
QuarterToDoom: Even though I'm staying away from the Oly cameras atm since I hate anything Sony (ie the Sony sensor) you cant deny even if you're a m43 hater that Olympus and m43 is leading the charge to give consumers what they want and evolving camera technology at a very rapid pace. Just look how they evolved since the E330
Im nearly the opposite. I usually wont buy something unless it has a Sony sensor. Right now they simply lead the pack in sensor development. They are just the best. After them id give the nod to toshiba or panasonic and then samsung. Fuji uses sonys 16mp sensor(one reason I bought my xe-1).
AV Janus: I would like to see a sensor that has an ability to stop exposing parts that are about to become overexposed. Or expose a bit longer in the shadows, for more leverage in PP.I guess this is similar.It wont be a big deal if its not automated and available only as selective spots and only by the use of touchscreen.It wont be a big deal if it wont be available in RAW as final output.I would rather see them apply they curves features to RAW and not only for JPEG output. that would be enough for me.
pwilly: Comparing Apples to Apples, the tiny sensor comments are just uninformed. A tiny sensor like a 1/3.6” has a 5mm diagonal. 35mm has a 43.3 diagonal, APS-C is 30mm 4/3 is 22.5mm and 1’ is 16mm. Micro 4/3 folks frequently claim that there is little advantage to FF vs. 4/3 in most photos and that is true. Unless you are looking for extreme low light, or very narrow DOF an equivalent photo can be taken with 4/3. So with just about half the diagonal 4/3 is sufficient.The Nikon 1 sensor has 71% of the diagonal of 4/3. Once again if we are talking equivalent photos the Nikon 1 sensor can take the same photo, but then add the stunning AF tracking and for action there is nothing like it.
The one thing the 1 series does right, is af but it does have the huge dof to play with.
whtchocla7e: Based on features and price, this must the D400 replacement.Why settle for 1.5x crop factor when you can have 2.7x. Haha.
Some one Has to buy One in order to get it off of Craigs list.
This device will also get an SD card slot. So thats pretty exciting! for me its either this or the Sony Z2. Which ever one makes it to the states faster!
BTW, the camera is 5MP("Ultra pixels"). I dont know what the 2nd one is though.
RichRMA: Maybe Fuji can do something about that annoying blank area above the lens?
What are you talking about? Where the flash is?
There's just a couple of things in video they need.It can be done via a FW update and make the xe-2 and xt-1 overall better multipurpose cameras and appeal to a wider audience. 1. 24p,25p,50p. This is the biggest one. Easy fix2. Allow manual.3. Better codecs. Meaning more then one.
JaimeA: Please do not post any comments until we get a full review of the Fuji X-E2. How long can we wait??? The camera appeared months ago and has been on sale since. No excuses please.
For the XE-2 that is
For the XE-2 that is.
Awesome Barney! I'm glad to hear the review is forthcoming!! I've been really looking forward to it!
Shunda77: The high ISO performance of this camera is truly impressive, Fuji are now a very serious player in the APS-C market.
Been like this since the X pro 1
Rod McD: Thanks for this - I'm still waiting to see an XT1 in the hand in Australia......
I suspect you're making a bit much of the issue of the locking button on the ISO dial. I change ISO when the light intensity changes (eg going form indoors to outside and vice versa) or if I make a lens change to a very different FL (eg to bump up shutter speed for a telephoto). It's just not that hard, and I doubt that it's so important from shot to shot when the camera is actually up to your eye. How long does it take - one second, perhaps two? Anyone who so desperately needs that second to grab a shot should have set their camera to an appropriate ISO far earlier. Anything's better than accidental changes.
And as for the inconvenience of gloves... Show me one camera that excels with gloves on. There aren't any. They're all woeful. It's just part of the digital age that they require dexterity to use all functions. This is hardly a fault unique to this camera.
It has 3.
This really does look like a great phone. All of the latest and greatest.
Gotta wonder if the screen is IPS or not though.
vscd: I like Fuji, but too many updates are no sign of productivity, but more a sign of banana-software, riping at the customer.
I do think they need to think about of some of the stuff before they release cameras.
They did Velvia pretty dang well. Everything else is off. Astia being the most off.
Wow...the 18-135 is 3.5-4.8! I thought it was 3.5-5.6. Cool stuff. I bet that is going to be one of the fastest focusing lenses out for fuji.
Well the 12-40mm 2.8 oly is all plastic....thin little sheet of metal on the outside.
Combatmedic870: Does it have a lens cap or is it like the other g series cameras??
Very good. I havent seen a pic with it turned off yet.
