On Fujifilm X-T1 Review preview (463 comments in total)
In reply to:

brycesteiner: I'm surprised this professional camera, which looks nice, would lack in these areas:

1. max shutter only 1/4000
2. poor video
3. USB 2
4. 1/180 flash sync

For being the top of the line camera many of the features are 2012. Still looks like a great camera though and could be a big hit.

Max 1/4000, you have to use ND filters, so. This not a camera for high speed action also. Poor video, by a nice piont and shoot or us your iPhone. USB2, who even uses USB. 1/180 sec flash sync, that is the only real problem the camera has. The difference from a D800 is only 1/70 of a second faster, blazing.This a still camera for light weight carry and maximum IQ for that mode.

On Fujifilm X-T1 Review preview (463 comments in total)

An 84% and gold, a lot of Fuji haters are not going to sleep well tonight. I own the X-T1, it is a fine camera with good manors the creates fine images. What more can you want? All cameras have limites and strengths. The X-T1 is well balanced in it MP, noise and size. It has an excellent lens made for it. I the thing I love the most, the movies aren't very good. I feel as if it has receive a fair review, other sights have given even a little more.
None of the camera draw backs are major. It may well be the best mirror less over all on the market.

badi: I see a lot of people thinking about "i would love fuji to move to full frame too"...

Actually, first, i think it will not going to happen (at least not any time soon) not for fuji, not for olympus/panasonic. They developed great systems of lenses for this format especially to compensate for the small sensor.
And second i would prefer not to, because this way they will conentrate on quality rather than splitting the features between the FF and APSC semi-systems.

For example the fuji's 23/1.4 35/1.4 56/1.2: This set of primes will produce images that compete with any DSLR FF with good lenses, going FF this companies will actually have to provide something better than the equivalent of this primes and that will go for higher price & huge bulk.
Another example here: Canon's 85/1.2 is 2.2x times the price and 2.5x times the weight compared to fuji's 56/1.2.

You are soooo right. In mirror less cameras, APS-C works out to be the best over all. Back in 1960's, 35mm was the small spy camera format that took off.....Nikon F days.

On Sony Alpha 7S in low-light: See video at ISO 409,600 news story (233 comments in total)

Big deal. Frist it is a movie, that is impressive, but for stills? Second the lens on adapter is F2.8. Just think a lens that is F1.2 would use iso 105k. Where would tht put a D4s. 12MPs has been past up years ago, a specially in FF. In APS-C and M43 we know of the two cameras their. It woud have served Sony much better to have cut the MP of the 36MP sensor in half for 4k movies with 18MP. Like the D4s Nikon and Canon camera. This super low light is a one trick pony, after you do some real low light stuff, then comes what. No lens and narrow use, Sony do you think before you leap?

In reply to:

dw2001: cool, now sony have more mirrorless full frame bodies than lenses for the system...how is it possible?!?!

They are coming out with a new fast prime late in the year. Think of the bodies as rear lens caps. If anyone wonders why such a low MP..it is for the 4k movie scan rate vs buffers. Remember, the ultra low is a byproduct, not a design. Heck the Canon and Nikon Cameras are at 18MP and 16MP, do you think either one of them are going try and mach the R7S, the Pros known better.

Direct link | Posted on Apr 7, 2014 at 22:10 UTC

It has a AA filter, good for movies bad for stills. Low light king, yes until some else comes out with a FF 8mp camera. The world, grasshopper, needs balance. The Sony pendulum singes massively to the other side of FF madness. The best camera they have come with is the RX10. It does what it should well.
But just think, Sony makes their next camera for stills, mostly. 18-20MP. Good low light with usable resolution. And they have more then two lens for it, with a loon bin adaptor.
I am not just saying this because I am a Fuji Fan Boy. But if I take out my X-T1 I will have three things going for me enough resolution to create fine image, fine dynamatic rang, low noise and accurate color all in good balance. I will have excellent optics to use. The camera will have a good level of performance.
Give me that Sony, I will think about jumping ship. Balance Grasshopper.

Canon does make the 1D-C, APS, but H. 18MP. The Sony maybe the new low light champ, if the here pixels are really larger or is it just using half it's res.at Canon has little to fear. Just an other Sony put it out fast half baked idea, bet ch'a. I think they would have been better off if a 1/10 of the lens show were available.

Can you just see a A7 with long high speed lens. 800mm F2.8. If you would photographic the combo, you not see the A7. The Nikon is over priced by about two grand, in way they have to be, for Nikon to make a good profit. To compare an a A7 to a D4s, well you can not. the A7 will not do what a D4s can, period.

Why in the name of #$@*&^? would you need a drop in cartridge. Just change the dial to ISO, or should I say ASA 800. What the &&^%$(()* is a cartridge, just say FF and everybody goes ape 8&^%.

On Review: Ona Lima camera strap article (133 comments in total)

I hope no thinks that the look is retrto. In the 1960 beyond no one used camera cases. I use to call them camera suggies. Pros where proud of their beat up looking cameras where the black was worn off and you would see th cooper. Back when peole did sell their stull just because something new came out. They did not keep it all clean and ready for resell, they used them.

On 900MP portraits show human face in extreme detail news story (272 comments in total)

How may pixel peepers are going just die for this set up. Too may a pixel makes too real, too stark. This camera set up would make Nicole Kiddman look bad. Should try still life. But ther is detail and it has it's own charm, perhaps not to the old. In the 19th century there were chairs with head rest because the exposers were so long. Most children from that are that were photographed, were no longer "with us" when photographed, small children would not hold still long enough unless they were, 'no longer with us'

This is going to appeal to causal users Sony, time to clean up the Jpegs. Other wise it is like most Sony. Well made and this time well thought out. But keeping with Sony tradition, over priced.

On Nikon D4s First Impressions Review preview (819 comments in total)

Fuji will not allow Raw file above ISO 6400. So it is very hard to say were they would end up. The Nikon D4s is the clear winner, three stops maybe just a little too much. A good one and half, maybe two. In the B&W image Nikon blacks have more noise.

On Nikon D610 Review preview (286 comments in total)

I use mirror less cameras, but if I want FF. I would buy this camera. Jpegs are very good, better then A7/R and it handles low as well as any 20MP+ camera. For the money, it is the way to go for 20MP+.
