On Integrating the MacBook Air into a pro workflow article (353 comments in total)

I use Macs and PCs on a regular basis and it's a mystery to me how anyone could choose a Windows machine before a Mac. Salute to Steve Jobs!

"We have to applaud Fujifilm for being so open about its lens release schedule, and helping potential customers to gauge whether the X system is likely to meet their needs in the foreseeable future."

Oh yes, that's great. The big question is why other companies in this business don't do the same? Canon introduced their M-system with only 2 or 3 lenses I believe, and no roadmap. Does that make you confident that Canon are dedicated to this and are you willing to invest in their new system?

Bjrn SWE: People say that Canon sensors are lagging behind the Nikon (Sony) counterparts and that Canons are no good. Strange thing, I just can't see that in this "Studio Comparison Tool" - the EOS 6D looks just as fine as any of the Nikons, at any ISO. Did I forget to bring my glasses?

"Sony doesn't make the sensor in the Df/D4…"
Now I learned something!

In reply to:

Bjrn SWE: Cameras with viewfinders should be rated higher.

Yes, viewfinders make them more bulky, but the title says "LEAVE THE DSLR - Enthusiast Compact Camera" unlike the coming soon "TAKE IT TO GO - High End Pocketable Cameras", so I think more bulk should be allowed in this category. Personally I dislike cameras without a proper viewfinder and only a display for framing, but that's me ;o)

Almeida: If it was Olympus, it would be cool.
If it was Samsung, it would be ordinary.
If it was Sony, it would be bold.
If it was Pentax, it would be old news.
If it was Hasselblad, it would be tasteless.

But since it's a white Canon, then it's junk.

Hey, there is nothing cool about that crooks company.

It's not retro enough - shouldn't be no display on the back, and there should only be a maximum of 36 exposures until you have to reload.

On Fujifilm X-E2 Preview preview (454 comments in total)
In reply to:

forpetessake: Two important things are still missing: a good grip and a tilting LCD.

Fuji X-E and X-Pro cameras will never have tilting LCDs. These cameras are just not made for that kind of photography. There are plenty of options from other makes though if you like these features.

peevee1: The same body and the only difference is the sensor? And most probably, just the sensor color filter array? Does not sound like it is any difference in cost, more like artificial differentiation, and if true, makes X-M1 totally superfluous - just a waste of $200.

@ Samaistuin
Eeh, um, I don't remember and I actually might be wrong about this. Read somewhere on the net that it's plastic... However, X-M1 has metal top and bottom, the rest of the body is plastic.

X-A1 body is plastic
X-M1 body is metal

I miss Aperture in the test. I guess it is still the one raw converter that most (!?) photographers use. (for a living)

Too many printed pictures in the upper right corner. I would like to see more real objects such as watches, wood, brushed metal, rusty metal etc

On Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 75mm F1.8 Preview preview (213 comments in total)

The only bad is that the silver lens doesn't match a black body. A black lens usually goes well with a silver/black body though! - Just my opinion.

On Shooting with the Leica M9-P article (648 comments in total)

The noise performance in the picture of the man writing a letter is really not that impressive, and it is "only" ISO 1250... Maybe Leica start looking for another supplier of image sensors.
