cdembrey: Now-a-days photography seems to be more about Conspicuous Consumption, than the making/taking of photos.
Snarky? You must not know what that means, Mr. design.
There's no such thing as a "flash gun." Please stop using this silly, outdated term.
It's the wealthy dilettante's dream. No more to it than that.
ttran88: Nice looking camera, thanks Fuji for bringing back some soul in digital cameras.
If you have to ask, you won't understand.
wetracy: A flash unit is not a gun. Stop calling it that!
Nowhere that I've seen on the Metz site do they refer to a flash as a "gun." Manufacturers do not want any association with that term as it may carry legal implications. For photography, I consider it a colloquial term that is unprofessional. It is mostly out of fashion, but once in a while I see someone dredge it up for who knows what reason. Please write more carefully.
I remember that goodbye, more than anything else for the whole seven days. She was my girlfriend in '68. We never got married, but still see one another.

Quentin Feduchin: I liked the X100 very much; I love my X100s which I consider a lifetime camera where I am concerned, being 73.Not that I expect to cark it any time soon, but having used many cameras in the past 60 years, I believe it almost succeeds as a watershed.Yup, no doubt the T model gets better stuff in it, that's to be expected. There will always be something better, or something extra in the newer model. But I doubt that I'll upgrade for a long time, if only because as a pensioner I don't need to waste the money, but mainly because the S model is so damned good.Also the attitude that this is a 'poor man's Leica' is a poor attitude. My brother owns an equivalent Leica M model and he hugely admires the FujiFilm unit.Finally I am very gratified that FujiFilm periodically upgrade their firmware; rather as Microsoft has done with the XP OS, until it was finally just too darned old..
I'm a few years behind you, Quentin, but I agree completely. My X100S is the camera they'll be prying from my cold, dead hands! And we now have word Fuji will be upgrading the electronic shutter and the film simulation modes in the S. Good company.
I don't see the value of this. His forte is obviously not presentation. He's probably fine at standing there answering questions and carrying on conversations with people. He missed the most important feature when talking about the viewfinder -- the combining of EVF and OVF providing a focus preview focus box -- this is probably the most distinguishing feature of this camera from the X100S. And finally, the woman holding the microphone could not look more bored.
RichRMA: It's going to be a dead, dead, dead show if you into cameras. However, if you want phones, TVs, etc, it should be good.
Yeah, that Canon 7D2 won't be any news at all!
Nothing more than glorification of war and war machines.
Sounds like major league BS to me.
“The whole point of taking pictures is so that you don’t have to explain things with words.”
That's what I thought when I saw these images several years ago when I worked in prisons and wrote about them. They could just as well be night shots of oil refineries out on the plains. Hardly seems a good way to "illuminate" the prison disgrace of the U.S.
However, I'm not surprised it's coming from an "editor" for whom I have such low regard. And yes, you don't have to remind -- that's MY opinion (as is everything else I've ever said in my entire life!).
RobertSigmund: I knew this movie. A pity he died so early. Maybe because of his big fat belly! :-(
He died of cancer.
"A camera for all weather?" Or just a silly, ignorant headline?
If there are no weather-sealed lenses available, why would anyone ask if it's a camera for all weather? Or, can I use it without a lens?
cmosse: Its also known that the famous Robert Capa Spanish Civil War "falling soldier" photo is a fake
Please stop spreading this nonsense. Capa had talked about exactly how he took that picture.
"...at a price rather lower than the camera manufacturers' equivalents."
It's just "lower." What's the "rather lower" claptrap?
I think what you really want to say is that it's significantly lower, but your ad sales people will not tolerate that. And you can't bring yourself to go with the simple and straightforward, "at a lower price." So you make yourself feel better with a silly and superfluous "rather" tossed in.
I'd rather read honest copy.
The power of a camera and someone who sees things! No wonder people get afraid when they see someone with a camera!
Nothing like a pedestrian "street photography" piece to provide a good spike to the traffic line.
Great image -- nice to see some other folks recognized how good it is!! Congratulations.
