On Fujifilm X-T1 Review preview (641 comments in total)
In reply to:

CNHT: I bought Fujiflim X-T1 on 24 Dec 2015, and I love this camera. but recently say in Feb 2015, I found that the rubber skin on the surface and on the camera lens zoom ring started to loosen up. The lens is 18-135mm the rubber sufface had shows sign of detachment so are the rubber sufface on the Camera.
Then come last month in early April 2015 the Camera Flash fail to fire. I had try to shoot in forced flash to test it but the Flash that came along with the X-T1 failed.

The last problem i found is the Shutter Speed Dail had also show its problem As i move to dail to adjust shutter speed. The metering dail also follow to move. The Shutter Speed dail seems to had also failed.

Can I have my X-T1 replaced? Just bought Dec 24th 2015 and now all these problems pop up.

Can Fujiflim make their flag ship camera tougher..? and easier to hold on too, ? Why must we bought extra handle for such so called well designed camera?

Thank you.

No XT2 replace for atleast 7 months that's brilliant ive got 7 months of future proofing. PS. Can you remember any Winning lottoery numbers...................

shutterdial: Thanks for checking out the site, and for all the valuable comments! And thanks dpreview for the write-up, I've been reading you guys for a decade and totally didn't expect to be featured. Greetings from a fellow Seattleite.

I agree that a sensor size option would be useful, because, as you have seen, it's not always generating results equal to the 35mm equivalent focal length. But it should be, and for many cams it is indeed querying for the 35mm equivalents. The benefit of not having a sensor size field is that it omits one field from the form, which makes the tool a bit more streamlined to use. But there's an argument to be made that other factors, like depth of field, also change with sensor size, and having an advanced menu to the side, as suggested by a user, is an elegant solution to fight clutter. Good things to consider and I personally did want to add a sensor size field (in fact a tiny bit of code for that is already in place), but it's a bit trickier than the other fields since I'll have to manually build a database of cameras and sensor sizes and constantly update that as new cameras are released. It comes down to time, as I can only dedicate the weekend to this project, but I agree - a great feature to have.

I also have some code to discern camera models in place, but, again, it'll take building out a database and then a translation layer that parses a users input to get right. What I don't want is a giant dropdown or a maze of menus.

Brilliant thank you very much. Will you be updating the site to look for particular camera and lens combinations in the future? I only ask as im in the process of looking for a new lens and such features would be useful to many people like myself. Again though Brilliant love it and so useful.

On Hands-on with the Pentax K-3 II article (513 comments in total)
In reply to:

SnakePlissken: Great looking camera and spec. But will it sell? And who will stock it? I have never seen a Pentax DSLR ever and living and working in central London means I see 100s of cameras on the street, tube, museums, galleries etc ever week. I have never seen one for sale in big retailers like Calumet or John Lewis either. I hope it does well as the consumer benefits from choice and Pentax / Ricoh is a great, almost left-field, option to the big guns.

As a new camera most companies will but i've seen john lewis and Calumet pop up during web searches and they tend to continue selling at the RRP when everyone else has reduced theirs. Argos in the UK seem to sell a lot of Pentax cameras and a few lenses but prices are almost the same as the original launch price despite 18 months since launch. It Varies yes but going back to SRS they have long been one of Pentax's main dealers and are highly regarded by many who use them.

Calumet? John Lewis? never look at those places for equipment, normally because they charge to much. SRS at Watford and WEX in Norwich are the place to go.

On Entry-Level Mirrorless Camera Roundup (2014) article (142 comments in total)
In reply to:

Mmd66: X-a1 question. I've been researching the heck out of this camera. I have a panasonic fz35 and lx5. I never use viewfinder and am mostly a scene mode type of person. I take alit of outside nature type photos and photos of my three young children. That said will I notice a huge difference in image quality if I upgrade to x al with kit lens ? Thank you in advance.

Yes the XA1 will give better quality images but you will obviously lose the compactness and reach of your other cameras

On Samsung NX1 Review preview (1232 comments in total)
In reply to:

Everlast66: I am surprised how the NX1 (£1300 in the UK) got a higher mark for 'value' compared to the K3 (£700) and K5 II (£500) that have half its price?!?

Supposedly it has 2-3 times more/better features for its price to get a higher mark for value.

Indeed it has some unique features like the BSI APSC sensor, powerful processior, 4K video, but the K3 and K5 II have some features that the NX1 lacks, like in-body stabilisation, Pentax shooting modes, some unique ergonomic touches and the available lens line-ups are not even comparable.

And i prefer OVF to EVF i've tried it many times and OVF is superior for judging when to release the shutter, EVF always seems to mean missing a better oppurtunity by a fraction of a second and that is crucial in many photographers that i know, especially wildlife and sports.

I think people like bashing Pentax, the NX system needs better lenses and Samsung needs to seriously consider it's place and direction in the market. I can pick up a Nikon D610 for about the same money and image quality would be better. Im not going to mention Video as it doesnt interest me. I shoot Pentax i like the K3's size and i have a reasonable range of lenses from various manufactures that wiill cover my needs. Samsung has been very slow developing it's digital cameras since they ended their Partnership with Pentax when they could of kept an established mount they chose to start yet another system which dillutes their protential market share and which leaves converts having to spend much larger amounts. Pentax K3 is a top of the line DSLR in APS-C format and will sell many more units than the NX1 will, Image quality might be better but do i change to an unkown quanity with its lenses quality and third party options but also what after sales service going to be like..............

Horshack: Yet another article about a Pentax camera. How come no mention of Canon or Nikon?

Doesn't Canon and Nikon get enough coverage? a New FF and new entry level cameras to take on rhe "Big 2" is news, anyway Canon released everything before the show and Nikon need to sort out their quality control issues before announcing a new camera.

Prognathous: Ricoh did this 15 years ago. Quote:

"One of the RDC-7's most interesting features is its "PRO" high-resolution exposure function. There are actually three different PRO modes, two of them making use of the same basic innovation: The camera has the ability to take two full-resolution shots in very rapid succession, displacing the CCD sensor a half the width of a pixel between each shot.(For the real technoids out there, we're told this is accomplished with a mounting arrangement involving a piezoelectric actuator that minutely shifts the CCD during the second exposure of the series.) The camera then takes the two slightly offset 3.3 megapixel images and combines them together into nearly 7 megapixels of raw image data."

It's nice to here people saying nice things about Ricoh and their innovations, They have certainly moved Pentax into a very Strong position in the market.
