smatty: Buy and destroy!
A strategy I never understood...
I guess we all kind of knew it was coming when NIK was sold.
they arent destroying, they are just pushing the software in the direction they see the computer going, which is more and more mobile and cloud based.
trust me, one day you wont have a single piece of software installed on your computer. everything will be run on high speed internet connections.
Give me a Fuji X-trans sensor in full Frameeverything about the X-Pro1 but a super fast AF systemand all the software options that panasonic/olympus/sony throw into there cameras. (i.e. focus peaking, expanded auto bracketing in all ways....)
BMWX5: I see a Gold Award for this camera and RX1 and 2012 Cameras of the Year! Anything less will be a conspiracy ;-)
i think it just comes down to DSLR technology is maxing out and everyone is doing it great now.
Rachotilko: Not working:
In FF12, WinXP64, the studio widget does not show in the K01 preview.
It's fine in Chrome
its not working in chrome19 for me. xp32bit
JWest: These pictures really are amazing. But is it just me, or are there a lot of "jaggies" in some of them? It's especially noticeable on the hard lines of the shuttle - almost like the pictures have been aggressively compressed.
they have been compressed. they are jpegs on a website.
anyone discussing how horrible the wire-less accessory looks? how horrible that placement is?
this thing should be poked right through the side or bottom. definitely NOT through an open door. if you want to use the camera while that is inserted it is just gonna block and disrupt the entire process.
Marty4650: I'd say this is an inexcusable defect for a $3500 camera. And it will be pretty expensive to fix, since a "firmware upgrade" can't do the work of a light seal. I imagine that all the 5DIIIs sold will have to be shipped back for a modification now.
Canon simply must do better quality control testing. It's really a lot cheaper to get it right the first time.
@skrulm8 you cannot seriously believe that 90% of DSLR's have light-leak issues? and it just shouldnt happen on a pro-level. ever.
lilia24: too big...
@Gary Martin, my sympathies go to your significant other.
mauro paillex: No problems with white orbs.!! Iìm a photographer not a scientist!!
the WDS varied a bit from camera to camera and if his shooting style didnt gear towards blown out lighting, he wouldnt have seen it.
i personally would have always been thinking about it but.
that is a freaking GREAT response from FUJI!. still gotta see how the new sensor works but a full service response is about as good as it could possibly get.
looking good in Chrome on Galaxy Nexus.
-any plans for a dedicated app?
but seriously, are not most sandisk cards strong enough to deal with most normal harsh conditions?
eivissa1: I wonder if I would swap the GX1 for my LX5, since the LX6 or 7 is coming this year. Difference in price between the two is more or less marginal. The LX6 will become in a strange postion, unless the price will down to 400 euro. Wait for the LX6, and hope that the improvements to the LX5 are massive (which I don't believe), or buy the GX1?Someone else in this situation?
+Francis Carver, its best to take these kind of things worth a grain of salt but that is what canon told me. the G1X is still their P&S offering. they will have a MILC this summer.
you could also just wait and see what Canon's mirrorless offering will be. from what i have been told it should be around july/august and cost $800-$900. i'd also expect a APS-C sensor but i could see them sticking with the sensor from the G1X.
kkardster: Stupid newbie question: Why is the lens diameter so much wider than the glass diameter? It seems out-of-proportion from what I'm used to seeing.
its a cropped sensor. you are used to seeing lenses related to a 35mm equivalent (a full frame sensor)
I'm really glad to see they are putting out firmware updates for these camera's. i kinda feel like its a bit blown out of proportion but i too would be upset if i spend $600 on a camera and it was screwing up photo's.
Nevertheless, lets just hope they fix all these issues and dont end up with stuff like this in the X-pro 1
lets go Fuji! and maybe that rumored fuji leica partnership can come to be.
This is gonna be great for my trip to Costa Rica.
