  • A couple for you from tonight's 5 minute moon dash :) Uncropped .. a little light PP just for crispness. Same image but a 50% crop The atmosphere was fairly unstable and the moon was only about 25 ...
  • Dicky this is what you need SkyTracker Youtube video here Made specifically for cameras. You could also go for the more expensive Skyguider if you are doing more serious night sky work. You could ...
  • Replied in Ralph
    Yep seen that on a number of occasions, specially when doing astrophotos. Quite often see green pixels in the review image but they are gone on downloading the images, so there is certainly ...
  • Don't know whats up with the camera. I'm picking up another card tomorrow so will see what happens. How are you finding your HS50/ Better than the HS20 I assume.
  • Created discussions Fujifilm @ CES ... No show
    This comment posted at Photo-rumors on 29/12/2014 pretty much sums up what I have been noticing as well. Very little to be said about Fuji's current and future plans for the coming year. "As of ...
  • Yep I would grab one in an instant is they could do that. It would be close to a perfect camera for me, not too worried about video, reasonable 1080 performance would do. I generally keep cameras I ...
  • If IQ is the most important thing for you then the S1 is the obvious choice. The Sl1000 is the older version of the S1, with the S1 building upon the SL1000's good points. The HS50 is a complex ...
  • Created discussions HS50 discontinued......
    A quick scout around the net today shows the HS50 listed as discontinued at B&H. Cameraworld.com and Cameraworld.uk have no listing at all for it. Amazon is still showing new units but if you trace ...
  • Yes there is a reason. However the vast majority of their "Rumors" are accurate, and as a rule they will publish from reliable sources, which to date have been accurate. I have very little to ...
  • According to this post at Fuji Rumors Fuji is looking to drop the entry level X series cameras from their line up. No more XF1,XQ1,X30 or XM1 or XA1? Possibly , and I'm not too surprised at this. I ...
  • Very nice. You have a great eye for framing. The shot of the Empire state building is a cracker. Viewing the originals show just how good the original EXR 2/3 sensor actually was.
  • I'm trying to locate a dealer that has an FZ1000 in store so I can have a bit of a play. At the moment  they all see to be online sales. MY HS20 still goes okay so until I can get one in the hand ...
  • Yep a small dslr with a single lens might just be what I windup with. Problem is then I lose macro, and I do a lot of macros too. The HS50 bests the HS20 in every department but IQ. At best its ...
  • Cheers for the feedback. Yup push/pull is the fastest way to zoom IMHO. I have a Pentax 55-200mm thats on my slr thats push/pull and I really like it. Your description of how the zoom works on your ...
  • I'm a long time Fuji bridgecam owner. I've had a number of models, but the models after the HS20 I didn't bother with as in my opinion IQ remained the same or in the case of the HS50 went backwards. ...
  • You and me both. The XA1 sensor is a cracker, and 300mm zoom on a sensor like that with a little digital zoom, who needs a huge chunk of glass.
  • Consider that thought for a moment. Then look down the way a piece, say two years hence. If Fuji continues the current trend in the consumer market as far as new releases are concerned we may all ...
  • Replied in Iphone
    Thats a big call Kim, but I do find myself considering the same thing. The FZ is a mighty enticing piece of kit, and with a sensor big enough that most would never really need much else. As to ...
  • Replied in Iphone
    And for those wanting that retro look then this may just be the thing you are looking for. Seems Panny is not the only ones able to come up with a new concept. And check the specs on their ...
  • Fuji has the XF1 and the later model XQ1 competing in this market, using the 2/3 sensor. To date there seems little to suggest that they are interested in upgrading these models to match the ...
