I use Corel PaintShop Pro. I find the user interface better than Photoshop which I find unfriendly. it works with most plugins. it is packaged with Nix Color effect x3 plugins for a reason it does not work with the x4 release.
Everyone thinks the cloud is a great, no one knows what it is. I would not want to get tied into this one. I would guess that the performance would be less than exciting.
Personally I am now using Corel Paint Shop Pro, it as a better interface than Adobe and it does everything I need for about $100.
More interesting is the Minox micro digital spy camera
Camera makers appear to be unique in their desire to go backwards, wierd retro rangefinder cameras, fixed focal length odities like this Nikon, black and white only cameras. Sort of unlearning everything from the 1950's before the SLR, auto focus, etc.
I am waiting for manual only focus cameras, a digital twin lens reflex digital camera, mechancilly timed shutters. match needle metering and the re-introduction of flash cubes.
Of course if these oddities were at least cheap they could have a place but paying $1100 for an oddity is just silly.
Nothing new here, both of my Sony A700 have the same problem it is not dust and requires an agressive wet cleaning - i am guess all cameras have this problem.
Both the shutter and mirror move both have something to keep them moving, oil, grease who knows. Also do not forget that heat, changes in air pressure could cause out gassing.
There are too many moving parts in all DSLR to not create a problem.
•Stitch Assist are you kidding me, anyone who has ever used a Sony Panoramic camera would look at the Canon functionality as a joke...
Menneisyys: Guys, check out the official samples at http://fujifilm.jp/personal/digitalcamera/x/fujifilm_x_s1/sample_images/ . All samples start at f/4.0 (no 2.8) and are all ISO100 only (no higher-ISO ones).
Unfortunately, the first one I checked out (haven't checked out the others), http://fujifilm.jp/personal/digitalcamera/x/fujifilm_x_s1/sample_images/img/index/ff_x_s1_001.JPG , show:
- grainy (noisy) sky- over-sharpening (see the contours of the balloon)- not very good corner softness (check the grass in the lover left and right corner).
I REALLY hope the camera delivers better results than this.
I want to like Fuji cameras, they look good on Paper. I bought (and sold an FS100) It was the most maddening camera I have ever owned. First the CA and purple fringing were too much to deal with, but more maddening it would not go to sleep it went off and when it was turned on it dropped all of the setting, ISO, bracketing, drive setting etc. - in the end the camera was unusable. The battery was tiny and the picture quality, not withstanding the large sensor was - average.
If I were to try Fuji again I would keep my eyes wide open.
Adriano76: Finally!... With X-S1 perhaps we'll have the real successor of the great s100fs!
I had a sold the 100fs, one of the worst cameras I have ever owned. Terrible CA, bad controls and the only camera that would not retain setting when turned off. I would think really hard before buying another Fuji camera.
