On Fujifilm X-E2 Review preview (283 comments in total)

Finally, Fuji gets gold. Most of the complaints can be soved by firmware. May be not not the movie mode, who cares. The X-T1 should be even better. Fuji is moving along well, each camera they make moves them up higher.
It is hard to read the reviews as of late in DP, they say the camera has such great Jpegs, that RAWS is almost not needed, then they say the Jpegs look waxie, in high ISO. I have always through my X-PRO 1, if nothing else made great Jpegs. Well 80/gold is not that bad.

The camera menu buttons are small and the rear wheel could be large or in a different place. But this came has an apture dial on the lens, the rear wheel does the same thing. It is not a menu driven camera, most of what you want is on direct dials. The menu buttons are mostly for set things you rarely change.

The images look great. Look At the IQ test in low light and daylight. The X-T! easily goes to ISO 6400 in raw and Jpeg. They image look "useable", the others look no so good. For it's category, it has the best low specs. The Fuji system has a fine 16mp sensor w/o an AA fliter , for sharpness. It has good precessing, fast and accurate focusing. Add to this a fine set of lens equal to any lens maker. Put it together and for an APS-C @ 16MP it is at top of it's game. Change to higher MPs and lose low light, but get more resolution. It is a well balanced throuhtout system.

It looks OK for a zoom, 10mm is just too wide for me, I use my 14mm F2.8 and 23mm F1.4 primes. Never liked zooms.

Looks like a nice lens, would want to see some testing. For all you Fuji folks out there, the 56mm F/1.2 should be a buy!

On Fujfilm interview: 'The only way is to keep innovating' article (226 comments in total)

If you want to stay with mirror less cameras, the APS-C sensor is about the right size. Note Fuji is saying a given lens is the MM focal lenght of the 135, say the 23mm f/1.4, they do not all it a 35mm f/1.4. A full frame mirror less camera would be like th Sony A7/R. The lens would be close to the same size of the DSLR lens, making the package lens heavy. Then there is 24MP APS-C sensors. These are light hungry and rraedy to make noise. So 20MP to 24MP sensors are going to have this problem. So you go to 18MP, do you really think there is a great difference between 16MP and 18MP? Take a hint from people who shot for a living the Nikon D4 is 16MP and the Canon is 18mp. You do not see Prros dumping their Nikons for Canons. Because the difference is minor.
I think 16MP-18MP is the sweet spot for APS-C sensor for over all use. Therefore waiting for a 18MP or even 20MP Fuji X-Pro is a waste. If the 16MP creates great images now, it will later on.

As I remember Kowa made a fine 6x6cm camera. It was a SLR like Hassi.. It was used by Pros of the age.

Why did they not just use the 35mm f/2.0 from the RX1? The camera's sells are going to crash and burning any ways. Sony drops the ball again. Where is their road map of lens, this would at least show what lens are forth coming. Something tells me they have little or no idea. They are depending on a third party for their lens, an excellent lens maker that is not noted for putting out new lens with any speed.

His last commet about FF. Do the lens they make now have focus circle large enough for FF? He said it was after the road map would be done. I just cannot see Fuji being like Sony and dumping a whole line of lens.
What ever they do I can only hope they will keep the lens, who wants to buy a new set of lens. I hope they will keep this in mind.

Just an other thought. This camera should have option like the D800, no AA.

Simga has a good camera in the DP1-3. But what is it? A point and shoot? Why make three different cameras. Make one camera and three lens. The Fuji line has so much more going for it.

On Sony Alpha 7R Review preview (759 comments in total)

Now if only the A7R had the A7 focusing and it's sutter. The camera is too small vs lens. It is the same sensor as the D800E. If you are backpacking or need a small camera, ok. But why not just get the D800E. It does not work with any of the RF lens wider then 35mm. The advantage of owning the A7R vs D800E is what? A few hundred dollars and size. Handling vs MP. The 82 and gold is just for 36MP, not a great camera, a good sensor.

On Sony a6000 First Impressions Review preview (604 comments in total)

24MPs is a little high for APS-C, I would rather give up a few MPs for better low light use. The 24MP is fine for the mass market, but I think most serious photographer would rather a better balance, leaving 24MP for FF. I fell as if 16-20MP is best for APS-C in all the noise tests I have seen.

km25: May I not live long enough to know That a major motion picture was shoot on cell phones, and look good! No more Arri's.

Just saying, would you do the remake of "Lawrence of Arbia" on a cell phone? My fear is some will say "yes". Sometimes the digital age brings down the level of quality, i.e., music play recordings. Most people lisen to MP3 players, CD sound better, they are less compressed. Analog records may have their own sonic problems, they are not compressed. The new word is not HIFI, it is OKFI.
No more Panavision 6x6cm.

It looks about the same as the X-Pro1, just a lot better AF/MF.

Eric Glam: Am I the only one to notice that the RAW files are processed, meaning they are not truly RAW? it seems Fuji is doing some sort of Chroma Noise reduction, and even a bit of Luma noise reduction.
I hate it when manufacturers do that. It's just plain cheating.

On a positive note, the skin tones produced by the XE-2 seem very natural, with the correct mix of reds, yellows & browns.

Which raw coverter do you like better. Photo Nija or Capture One and why? Thank You.

If I had $11.5K I would find much better ways of spending it. If The Donald ever becamera a fashion photographer.

You do realize that a 50mm lens is a 75mm lens in the Land of APS-C.

Direct link | Posted on Feb 1, 2014 at 05:36 UTC as 9th comment

Wow. Great lens. I like a 35mm much better. It's $1k price tag is worth it. Just think a Leica APO is $8K. It's just that 35mm is a little for me in 135.
