Miwok: Why should go with this camera when a NEX-6 give me almost the same for half the price?
Maybe read up on some reviews and forum entries from Fuji users to get a better understanding of the appeal of the X-Series. You can also rent one and test it for a couple of days to form your own opinion based on your experience. Some gear works better for some than for others.
driftnomore: to simply put....it is expensive!
What comparison products do you use to come to this conclusion?
epozar: No fully-articulated back lcd...
...and your point?
Anastigmat: A dedicated APS-C camera system with a new lens mount makes as much sense as driving into a dead end street without a reverse gear. Sooner or later the car will come to a screeching halt because there is no way to turn around. Worse, the lenses are useless because they have electronic aperture control so you cannot use them on any other camera. Camera systems like these are destined for obsolescence.
So effectively you're saying the Fuji guys do the same things as most other manufacturers these days, they build their own system that won't work on another body in full auto mode. Works for m4/3 as well it seems.
Frank C.: 1/500s fastest shutter speed with auto-iso.... ugh1/180s x-sync ...average1/4000 fastest shutter speed... averagesummary: ugh average average
@yabokkie: your constant bashing of anything Fuji is tiring. just walk away from something you don't like, simple.
JohnEwing: A few new quirks to learn but otherwise very nice. But FF would be nicer than nice...
And the company declined to have plans to go to FF multiple times, so it comes as no surprise it isn't FF.
naththo: I shall pass, thanks. This will be a terribly nightmare to get image right with RAW software.
It's a patent, for now.
JaimeA: All of this “legacy” lens usage is an exercise in frustration. Why do it? The composition in a photograph being the most important aspect (and very often a fleeting moment), why waste one’s time and energy dealing with exhumed, essentially manual lenses and try to adapt those that were not meant for these days of sophisticated digital photography? Would you try to match a gearbox from a Nash or Studebaker to a Bentley? If you must have alternatives, why not try Sony’s A-mount with the adapter? Or the new reasonably priced Samyang variety of five prime lenses? Be kind to yourself. Not only you will live longer but also your life will be void of senseless self-induced stress and be far more productive. There are just too many compromises. Leave your old, baby shoes in the closet; your feet have changed.
Hm, if you read the article, you would understand the motivation the author had for trying this out. A lot of people enjoy manual photography gear and want to know how well it works on newer bodies.
mrmart: Does the macbook Air have the latest version of NSA software pre-installed?
new boyz: It will be nice if they can fit in extra batteries there.
That would just add unnecessary extra bulk, wouldn't it?
Tonio Loewald: Samsung sure know how to make a butt ugly product.
At least they are able to come up with corresponding horrible product names as well like: Samsung WB2200F. Shows me all the love that goes into marketing their stuff.
Asylum Photo: Chris Dodkin in the Fujifilm Forums has a much more comprehensive booth review. Kind of disappointing, DPReview. :/
Same thoughts here, Chris is doing a much better job than the paid folks.
peevee1: Not even as expensive as expected. Probably corners are not sharp to f/2.8-4?
Probably best to not speculate, rent the lens when available and take it for a test run!
bayoubooger: it was already mentioned sales on the "1" weren't as hot as Nikon had hoped? What the big deal?
It wasn't mentioned because it is irrelevant for this topic.
paulbysea: As per usual the media only think about Apple. What about an article about apps for Android Tablets, The Nexus 7 2 has a better screen than any apple product, which suggest it would be better suited to photographers than over priced apple products.
Wow, what an angry and sad post.They'll have their reasons why they lead the market, why their devices outsell most other mobile devices and why the customers actually buy stuff on their platform. Man, if I'd wine around for each camera test on DPR from a brand that I am not interested in... :)
ABM Barry: Samsung screen, Sony camera module, ...... Whats apple about it apart from the usual high price - sub-standard image quality and the usual itunes lock-in exploitation soft ware.
Then apple will again sue Samsung for using their very own screens!
If you ware a brown cardigan, you probably love being charged by apple for what everyone else gets for free!
Given your logic everymanufacturer should make hardware and software themselves. That leaves Sony and Samsung in even worse positions, because with your thinking, those folks would not even have an OS at hand.
Houseqatz: it's like everyone forgets that consumers purchase apple products because they, by and large, make the decisions for the consumer.. everything must be approved by apple..
i have a 4s, and it is the last iphone i plan on purchasing.. and while the live fliters are alright, and i dont' mind how their HDR mode works, or the burst.. it's no longer about doing things differently.. that was steve jobs apple.. tim cooks apple want's to compete with other manufacturers.. which is fine, bc he clearly lacks the vision for what apple was, that steve jobs had.
Boy some people never get tired repeating the same "Apple is doomed BS" for decades. Cook excels for over a decade at that company already, he didn't just start there yesterday.
If the image quality is in the same league as the other zoom, Fuji will have a popular lens - for those who really need the reach. On the other hand, it does look like a giant on the x-e1.
Fuji, now get working on that wide zoom please! :)
Most stupid looking device we've seen for months. DPR and your "connect"-sidekick might as well start reviewing CCTV cameras, but wait, their not Google or Android...
Yet another boring story from mobile phone nerds. Please bring more on actual photo gear, this constant spam with android here and there is disgustingly boring and obvious.
