My hero <3
Are we just condemned to HDR now ? Lord, I hate that stuff....
1" sensor.... yawn....
FrankS009: Although not a medical specialist, I wonder whether he has suffered post traumatic syndrome from his experiences, and I hope that he is getting the appropriate treatment. If soldiers can suffer it, why not he who has suffered so many wars? Within photography, he seems to be using landscape to gain some peace. I wish him well.
As someone who is a fan and has read and watched every possible available bit of stuff on this gentleman, it seems very obvious to me that he indeed suffers from the most blatant form of PSS. Hear him talk about when he's in the dark room, listening to classical music, and all those images come back to haunt him and he says "it's like sinking at the bottom of a very deep ocean".
I'm a HUGE Mc Cullin fan, I've watch about every available video featuring him, read his autobiography, and bought some of his books. He's a truly wonderful gentleman, and great photographer, and a fine human being. To this day he's carrying the burden of what he's seen and documented, and will take it to his grave.
HubertChen: What am I missing? The X-T1 has the viewfinder in middle of the camera, which is ergonomically bad, as now my nose is colliding with the display. The previous X-Models have the viewfinder in the corner of he camera, which is way better.
Other then than the bad placement of the EVF, what is the difference?
And do not get me wrong. I love the Fuji X-Cameras. They are very well designed and work like a charm. Just do not see the excitement of bad placement of the EVF and why to create a new camera family? If they want to increase sales, work on cost down of the wonderful X-Gestalt.
The difference is the massively improved EVF !!! Larger, flip screen, better dial implementation. The EVF alone might be worth the upgrade...
Most people seem to overlook this dude's most proeminent feature, a HUGE EVF that is specified higher than the ones in both the Sony A7 and (better yet) the Oly E-M1. That, alone, is worth looking at that model with a lot of consideration. Not to mention the well implemented manual controls, tastefully done Retro styling (which I'm normally not fond of, being a NEX7 lover), lovely lens line-up, and great Fuji IQ.
Sam_Oslo: The RAW image quality is the most important aspect of such a camera, why is the reviewer keeping such a negative focus on JPEG quality?.
Some of us are serious photohraphers yet still prefer jpeg to RAW. My jpeg workflow is light, fast, time approved and delivers great results. The extra time and effort to work with that camera I just couldn't justify vs. the NEX7.
Oh boy, do I agree !! Tried out two units and returned both, the jepg engine is just horrid.
Marla2008: Count me in on this one, to go along with the 7's successor. People tend to overlook the super useful built-in flash, superb sensor only previously accessible in the crappy A3000, Bionz X processor having probably more positive impact on AF speed than the useless PDAF. 430K screen is a bit lowish res, but quite acceptable, and we also get the new revamped menus, woo hoo. Over priced at launch, but street prices will take of that ;)
Except in real life scenarios (I have several NEX 7 and 6 units) I never saw any difference...

OMG why waste gorgeous images with that dreadful HDR !?! This is really the illness of the 2010's... Sad, sad.
A lot of really good pictures there !!! Well worth checking out...
(unknown member): Originally I was impressed by the images but the more I looked at them the more critical I have become. I think the worst one is "Migrant Mother" followed by Lincoln. It was a rainy day in Southern California and I'm not understanding the blotchy golden tone the Swedish "artist" decided to use. I had to redo the image and I think it looks much more natural.
Your version is excellent, indeed.
I beg to differ. I actually find it not only amazingly well achieved from a technical point of view, but also a very interesting alternative perception of an all important collective heritage. Replacing the originals would have been a crime, but both versions can coexist and complement each other in a very useful way. say bravo.
Absolutely, sensor size does matter, a lot ! I do think there is a need for compact, but ONLY equipped with an APS-C chip. Anything below that don't cut it, at least for what I want. For you guys never heard of Aptina, have you lived under a rock, lol ?
I have yet to see a genuinely great cellphone capture. Don't expect to anytime soon, either. Other than that (and that is strictly personal), congrats on the new site.
Francis Carver: Wow.... This camera looks cheap-cheap-cheap. It even TALKS plastic.
Wow, where is the VIEWFINDER on this thing, Panny? I just don't see it. Surely... it must have an optical or LCD electronic or OLED electronic or.... something else for a viewfinder. Anything, anything at all?
Also, Panny, why is the LCD screen's resolution so retroactively low?
Also, how come your camera's still record interlaced video, when just about everyone else out there had switched to progressive quite a while back?
Also, Dear Panasonic, please try to come up with a new model name designation system. What they have now, nobody can figure out.
You gotta be kidding... I'm a D700 owner and my GX-1 screams quality, it's an extremely well built camera with superb finish.By the way, it's also so good in IQ I don't plan on shooting my DSLRs anymore.
