if we get this trouble covered, ...what about a Leica M review?

what is the point of adjusting photos without the brushes. Even in old film days you would kind of do the adjustments for over or underexposed for special areas.
Ok there is LR and it seems to be a bit more advanced.
The annoying thing is how apple always dictate you what to do.
I thought as an graphic focused company it will keep up this values. but now everything becomes iPhone, quick, meaningless and annoying.

arndsan: actually I don't need much features from aperture. Just use auto curves, doge, burn, definition brush and the colour slider. If Photos got this I might try. Anyone know?
For sure I don't will upload my images to the cloud - what ever the future will bring.
Just checked the LR price and it seems OK. would get used to it I guess. I don't like the IPhoto way anyway

right - after research I found out that the brush features are gone.
What is the point then Apple - when adjusting always to the whole pictures and not just to certain areas of it, I think it miss the point of an adding tool entirely.

what is the new challenge ?

On Fujifilm X100T Review preview (659 comments in total)

I just went out with my x100s today. So much fun shooting with it. I pray that fujifilm will just carefully refine this camera further without doing some big silly changes. Ok - yes, the lens could be somehow f1.4 and the leaf shutter could have at least 1/2000sec wide open....please!!!

On Fujifilm X100T Review preview (659 comments in total)

love my x100s but...
options and feature are agains the approach of the camera.
If I want to use f2 with more then a 1000sec I need to change ISO or switch on the ND filter or the electronic shutter, how is that intuitive. Give us a 2000sec at least. When I do my setting and learn then that I'm with 1300sec overexposed and I need to think about a other strategy to get around this, I found it very confusing and not engaging. If the electronic shutter is as good as the leaf shutter why not just go for this one.
Same with all the soft buttons - after picking up the camera I need to check all the settings over and over again. The flash just fire, the ND filter is on because it's on the FN button and so on...
And please make the battery meter more reliable...
That's what is missing.
Putting a little screen into the OVF is not really a update - if the manual focus is on wire, I will not use it anyway.
so far

I thought mirrors is so small that it can have it always with me and it "don't drag me down" - still producing designated came bags make the whole idea useless.
Would just get a inlay or a pouch what give me room in my regular bag to do all the other stuff in the city. that's would be Urban Approach.
The Think Tank looks now more like a lap top bag what actually nobody carry anymore as well.

In reply to:

Chaitanya S: I thought whole purpose of mirrorless system was to have lenses that were smaller and lighter. That 90mm macro is bigger and heavier than Tamron 90mm VC lens designed for slrs. These mirrorless systems are mainly a marketing gimmic and they have a diminishing returns based on sensor size to lenses. APS-C and micro 4/3 format seem to be right choice for those people who want to travel light and still want to take good quality photos.

agree !
the A900 was sony's best camera so far.

someone said this already -
nobody in the video using aperture or focus or is dealing in the time. - too funny because it all about the manual controls with this camera.
Looking at this movie again and i'm sure there is nobody serious behind it.

good idea - but the design really have to be more purposeful and not such pointless minimalist T design - Please give us external controls and some grip to it. Potential users would love a black model too (my guess).

Marty4650: There seems to be a real disconnect between making an "affordable camera" for lenses that cost between $4,000 and $10,000.

I mean... why bother?

Can't the Leica lens owner afford a Leica camera?
If someone can't afford those lenses, they why would they buy this camera?

Did I miss the part where Konost was planning to create a few affordable lenses for their affordable camera?

I'd say Konost is solving a problem that doesn't exist. Perhaps they might have been better off creating an affordable rangefinder camera that uses Nikon F lenses?

I think this would be perfect for zeiss or voigtlander m mount lenses
There many great second hand one out there too.
Also - people I know think that the lens is more like a investment and like to pay for the good quality. The Leica digital camera prices are ridicules because it will not hold the value and the quality difference to any other camera (Sony 7R) is just not there.
So it makes perfect sense so produce a affordable platform to put that good glass on. Without going to Sony's playstation menu !

In reply to:

Txoni: Two few physical buttons for a digital camera, imho. They may want to make it look like an old film rangefinder, but for a digital one I'd miss extra buttons and dials for iso setting, EV compensation, image/menu selection joystick,...

I don't think that a touchscreen is the best solution for this kind of camera, where the user wants to have control on everything.

yes - feel that the target group want external controls, a bit more grip and a black version! - or at least I would find that perfect : )

yes, if this exited you please do all the Leica stuff too !!!

On Real-world test: Nikon D750 at the Museum of Flight article (281 comments in total)

after a short test... - i found the life-view AF now usable.
a draw back for me is the little LCD on the shoulder.
If it not show all my settings anymore and i need to use the big screen
(what I don't like at all during shooting) it becomes useless.
Make me wondering why not using the Pro-line controls from the D800/810 for such advanced camera.

On Apple to cease development of Aperture article (425 comments in total)

why apple want my pictures in the cloud?
Btw. not everyone got everywhere super fast internet to upload 45mb files from the D800.
I found it more then strange how apple first try to win you over and then do what ever they want. Knowing that apple is many times right with there prediction of the future development ,...my pictures in the cloud ...NO!
