rallyfan: What nonsense. WHO is "everyman?" This thing is expensive and is NOT made in the USA. Why are we discussing this? Aren't there bags made domestically that one can use instead? (Hint: yes... Even this site's owners sell some domestically-made bags that are decent options. I don't recommend anyone shop there, but if you must, you can in fact buy a US-made bag even there).
I don't understand your comment. Why does the bag have to be made in the USA?
I'd encourage readers here to go to the site and look through the photographers' entire series. Many people here seem content to just glance at the photos presented on DPR, without understanding that they are part of a whole set of images from each shortlisted competitor. For example, the comment about the last one being a "random snapshot" makes no sense at all in the context of that photographer's submission.
Wubslin: 'faux leather'
Stopped reading right there. Goodbye Fuji, you won't be missed.
If you are going to stop reading at the first sign of something that you don't like, you should perhaps read a bit more carefully.
day2012: I think that if you're going to use Fujirumors' story so directly, the least you could do is to provide a link to their site...
I notice that there is a link at the bottom of the story. It's possible that I missed this, in which case my apologies to DPR!

Marcos Villaroman: Is this the same company/device that advertised Android compatibility during the Kickstarter and then backed away from Android support soon afterwards?
If so, this is not the kind of company I want to support, especially given the $150 price tag.
They never said it was going to be universal. When they introduced the Android app, they made it clear which phones were supported and which were not. I think it's fair to say that they have been slow with the Android app and updates, but it's not fair to claim that they misled backers.
EssexAsh: and no shots to demonstrate how good the IS is. Thanks for nothing DP.
You should demand your money back.
ArcaSwiss: I'm still not getting why this kind of article is seen by the editor as appropriate for this site. I don't come here to read this sort of thing.
Well don't read it then.
I can't believe how open he was. The stuff about introducing too many models at once was what I thought at the time, but it's very interesting to hear an executive of the company say it. Also, the attachment rate information is very significant. Congratulations to DPR on getting this interview; it really is very informative.
grumpycat: No zoom feature so it is useless on phone!
Have you tried the app? Or is there not a version for your phone?
GXRuser: Missing EVF is an issue. Same for the XA-1.
If only there was some way to get an X-trans sensor with an EVF. Fuji should really address that gap in the market. In fact they might benefit from trying to invent some sort of hybrid OVF/EVF. I wonder if there could be a market for such a thing? It might even be worth them considering introducing such a thing for both fixed and changeable lens cameras. If I were them I might be tempted to go for something like a 35mm equivalent for the fixed lens version. What do other people think?
arhmatic: I really need to question Fuji on this one...
Do we really need FOUR tiers? What's next now? an X camera phone
They are really diluting the initial retro concept of the X cameras, as the real pro oriented mirrorless... this is why I initially bought into the system. Terrible move, if you ask me.
Are you suggesting that your decision on whether you buy the 23mm f1.4 is based on what cameras it can be attached to? That seems to be an odd way to make a decision.
In the first para you have "L820" instead of L620.
schaki: I find it somewhat laughable that Fujifilm have copied the "M" from Leica rangefinders at the same time as using the M for their most simple model which in fact should be for the X-Pro1.So what is the next joke from Fujifilm? Probably that the jpegs with badly smudged foliage still remain unchanged from previous models in the X-series? At least i might guess so unless they've some other bad card to play on..I could have considered the X20 if it not had been for that very irritating flaw.At least they've got the tilt-lcd right with the X-M1. Hope to see options with low NR included as well and I might test one.
Are we to understand that you think that this camera is "laughable" because it's called the "XM-1"? Are you really trying to tell us that if it was called the "XN-1" you might take it seriously but because Leica have exclusive use of the letter "M", this camera is no good?
Alberto Tanikawa: Soon we'll have cameras that will not work unless they are connected to the internet. Oh, let's not forget the monthly fees in order to use it too. I thought the Nikon 1 V2 was ugly, but it seems Samsung wants to match it.[/sarcasm] Interesting concept, but no thanks.
Possibly, but what has that got to do with Samsung?
This is a bit of a straw man argument, surely? Has anyone said anything about fees to use the camera? I think you're right that it's not very pretty, but there's no need to make stuff up about it.
The extent to which this is interesting depends on how much control over the camera you can have from a separate device. If you can set aperture, shutter exposure compensation, ISO etc from a remote device, that might open up some new possibilities. Otherwise, using Android (or any similar operating system) just seems a bit of a gimmicky way of getting rid of some buttons on the back of the camera.
depscribe: This is the worst idea anybody has ever had since the beginning of time.
Why do you say that?
