Not bad Canon, but a rickroll would have been even better.
Like:-The dynamic range, really good for landscapes.-The colour rendition.-The blur falloff, very pleasing. Almost film-like.
Don't like:-Insane noise reduction at high ISO. Makes this camera look like a cheap compact.
But then, there's always RAW.
photo perzon: For the same money and weight and size, the APS-C Fuji X-A1 and the perfect 27mm pancake produce immaculate samples.
No viewfinder and no zoom. Also no 4k. But keep comparing apples to oranges.
This would be a pretty good travel camera. Compared to my XE1 and 18-55 which is my current workhorse on holidays, it has very similar light gathering capability across a similar focal length (slightly wider but slightly shorter at the long end). The tradeoff is resolution, but I could live with that if it meant having a much smaller camera.
peevee1: "It’s very important to maximize quality, especially in still images. I think we do need X-Trans. There’s no low-pass filter and moire is minimized."
Who cares about X-trans, nobody has AA filter with Bayer anymore.
Buy the 28mpix sensor and Samsung processor from the new NX1, and you will be golden, Fuji. Time to shop outside of Japan, the ancient 180nm factories wouldn't do anymore.
Yeah, I dispute that X-trans is a necessity. It's not as dreadful as everyone makes it out to be, but there's no huge advantage over just not using a low-pass filter.
Menneisyys: "Of course we are committed to the APS-C format, and we’re still investing it. In terms of resolution, our lenses are so sharp, there’s scope for higher resolution to maximize the capabilities of the lenses."
Sharp lenses able to properly drive considerably higher-res sensors - exactly the same I've been telling the people here at DPR who tend to state higher-Megapixel sensors in Fuji cameras would be pointless.
As has also been shown by Sony's A6000, there wouldn't be any downsides of switching to Sony's 24 Mpixel sensor used in the A6000. Or, for that matter, if Samsung's new 28 Mpixel sensor is indeed good and they also offer it to third-party camera manufacturers, that one.
To clarify, it's one of those "all else being equal" rules. Sensor tech improving may be responsible for the dynamic range being the same.
Beat Traveller: 1" sensor compact with aperture/shutter dial please!
X30 doesn't have that control scheme.
1" sensor compact with aperture/shutter dial please!
Dynamic range is better with larger pixels. That's one downside of switching to a 24mp sensor.I don't mind if they offer both sizes, to be honest.
theprehistorian: Hmm, I'm not seeing anything to get excited about. The images have the weird X-Trans 'fake' look, and are a tad soft. Lens flare is in evidence too. I know it's a pretty camera, but I don't think it's actually all that good.
Try Photo Ninja or Iridient. It's no 'myth'.
Ah, yes. It takes a bit of work to get a good look, some of the newer RAW converters have improved it.
Are any of these using the 'classic chrome' film simulation?
Is that the skin tones at high ISO you're referring to when you say fake?
maxnimo: If such a camera would have at least 2 settings, 35mm and 80mm, I could live with it. But to be stuck at 35mm is just too limiting for me, regardless how perfect it is.
I simply can't imagine any scenario where "only 35mm" could fill my need on a photo shoot.
An X100T and an X-T1 with the 60mm is a combo I could live with.
Nice, looks like Samsung has brought it's A-game to the pro market. Interested to see how all those switches on the lenses function.
Jogger: Has any one ever seen a Samsung ILC outside of a store?
Yes, my uncle got one for his 60th. Good camera.
Operator: Excellent piece of software and for Fuji X RAWs the only way to go!
LR renders noise in a more pleasing manner than C1 though, and doesn't have problems with chroma noise.
The wise man has all these converters and uses them as needed for different tasks :)
This is a very exciting time for the camera world.
I've been looking forward to this camera. It looks fantastic! Really love how the manual exposure dials are catching on.
