On Fujifilm XF 16mm F1.4 moves from roadmap to retailers article (228 comments in total)

This suggests that this lens will probably not work outside in wintertime!?

I wish I did! 😎

Bjrn SWE: Terrible samples, dpreview!

By the schoolbook: Keep the camera levelled. Shoot straight so that the filmplane/ sensor is parallel to the subject (house), try to avoid looking up or down. A tripod with a head with built in levells comes in handy. Don't go too wide if you don't have to. It you need to photograph up/down or sideways anyway a tilt/shift lens is the best.

When shooting street and that kind of stuff anything goes as long as the picture is interesting or have some kind of quality.

Best Regards/ Björn

He-he, I do appreciate the job you're doing, but in this case the samples are just not up to your standards. Super-wides are hard to handle, I know ;o)

On CP+ 2015: Canon shows off prototype 120MP CMOS sensor article (255 comments in total)

I wonder about that sensor size, 29.2mm x 20.2mm. Do they have that in mind for a new mirrorless Canon system?

On Integrating the MacBook Air into a pro workflow article (347 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.

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

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