If DNG is fully supported (and may proprietary RAW formats not), might be one reason to consider DNG conversion as part of one's standard workflow...

I'm guessing the Photo version is JPEG-only; any word on if RAWs are accepted too?

In reply to:

maxnimo: If this camera had a 50mm equiv. lens I'd be far more likely to buy it.

I guess I'm an old-fashioned, outdated oddball.

Fuji makes an adaptor, though it would add considerably to the depth of the camera: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1032495-REG/fujifilm_tcl_x100_telephoto_conversion_lens.html

On Nikon D7200 First Impressions Review preview (824 comments in total)
In reply to:

Gazeomon: My last Nikon was a D300s and it's going to stay that way. I'll give it to my nephew along with all the Nikon glass. Nikon simply fails to excite me as it once did. These comatising iterations are nothing but a blatant money grabbing exercise. I have moved away from Nikon because the D400 never arrived and never will. DX Canon, Samsung, Sony and Pentax is where I am looking with interest.

In addition to a slightly higher frame rate (perhaps bolstered by a battery pack/vertical grip, like the D300/s), a class-leading DX body should include better build, weather sealing, a better grip, and a more professional control layout. The D7200 should be that camera (with the D5300 scaling up a tiny bit to fill the gap), but it's not. Don't get me wrong, it looks like a great camera—and in some ways puts my D300 to shame—but there is a wide Nikon customer base that knows it just doesn't need/want FF, but still wants professional-grade gear.

Very cool. I would love to see more affordable tilting (bounce-able) flashes on the market!

The diagonal banding (exhibited in his-res shots with motion) is evident even in the studio shot; take a look at the green feathers. The slightest breeze may invite unwanted artifacts...

Caerolle: So amazing, two such completely different cameras tied for first. The next few years should be really interesting, if the camera business doesn't collapse upon itself.

Both feature Sony sensors.

In reply to:

klukkluk: That's funny. If you look at the section "Gear in this Story" below, the Fuji seems to be most popular. Not that I give a scheet what's the most popular. Just shows these polls are taken to be with a grain of salt.
Congratulations to the winners nonetheless

Most popular by number of Amazon reviews? The Sony has only been available since late November, while the Fuji has been available for over a year. I think that still says something for the X-T1, as it's usually the newer gadgets that win popularity contests.

Indeed. But also interesting to note the similarities—two very well-spec'd full-frame interchangeable-lens cameras. As phones replace point-and-shoots for the mass market, camera manufacturers are refocusing their efforts on the higher-end, prosumer and professional market. I like it!

Selfies don't bother me. But I'm not crazy about this trend of retro style without retro controls.

On Fujifilm X100T real-world sample gallery posted article (85 comments in total)
In reply to:

Dan Bracaglia: The lens and sensor in the X100T and X100S are the same. Functionally, they are different. The X100T offers a slightly more refined shooting experience, in some aspects, to the X100S. This obviously can not be demonstrated in a sample gallery.

The main purpose of this gallery is to demonstrate the Classic Chrome film simulation, and how it compares to some of the other simulation modes offered. This is something we have not had the chance to do before with a non-beta model.

Thanks, Dan! It's great to be able to see the different film simulations side-by-side.

In reply to:

justinwonnacott: Move along folks - nothing to see here except the same lens and sensor in last year's camera.

All good points. It looks like they made an effort to showcase the new Classic Chrome film mode, and compare it to ACR and the other available film modes.

In reply to:

Retzius: Nikon's answer will be a D7100 with wifi, GPS, and bigger buffer, and a few minor tweaks. I've given up on a "true" D400. Nikon's heart isn't in it, they think FF is the answer.

Their loss. I'm this close to switching systems.
