I've been a Canon user for almost 30 years and my aging body can't take carrying the large bodies and lenses any longer. I'm now using a Think Tank roller camera case, but I'm also building my Fuji X system. When Fuji comes out with a pro flash system, I'm making the switch. I was hoping Canon would introduce a pro level mirrorless camera, but I don't think it's going to happen.

Optical control is a pain to use. Radio control much better. I'll wait for Fuji to come out with theirs. I just hope they bring out a pro level flash SYSTEM with radio control.

Thank Fuji for the update. Like most of the posters, I appreciate a company who lets us get the most from our cameras before we HAVE to buy a new model. It's cost effective for the consumer and builds brand loyalty.
Now we need a professional flash system with radio remote capability. Then I can dump my Canons.
The quality of the Fuji cameras, lenses and images is only matched by their wonderful size and weight. Years ago I used Leica M cameras. These are every bit as good and in so many ways better.

Three triple A batteries in the Commander Air? Really? Why couldn't you make it two AA's and save having to have two different sized batteries? Terrible. Looks like a neat system though. Hopefully they'll add Fuji to the mix.

I'm a Canon professional user for 30 years and I've bought into the Fujifilm X system completely. Once Fuji (or someone) comes out with a professional flash system, I'm turning the tables on my Canons except for sports. At 62 years of age, I'm tired of carrying the full sized DSLR. I used to use Leica with my DSLR's and now I have the option of using the Fuji. The image quality is top notch - fine for print and web. They have a great system of lenses that rival Leica and the Fuji bodies are actually fun to use. Weather sealing could be better, but I can work around that.
Canon Professional Service is a huge advantage of theirs. Great service. I'll bet Fuji is not far off from offering pro support.

Pretty lame campaign. I tried to navigate the web site and nothing interesting or of use comes up. These hip, obscure ad campaigns don't work. Give me substance not seeing the impossible. I'm a pro Canon user and I'm no more educated today about Canon than I was yesterday.

I wish it was for a FF or C sized rangefinder style mirrorless camera. I'm getting ready to purchase a Fujifilm X-E2 for travel. Tired of lugging around a dslr.

The addition of WiFi to the 7D MkII. Big mistake.

Just so people don't think I'm substituting wifi for a laptop, I was just offering another way of sending images for social media use or for quick composition monitoring by the client. Maybe that's been covered in a previous post.

I purchased a Canon 6D specifically for it's wifi capability. I shoot photos to accompany live blogs and tweets at events that my colleagues are posting. It easily pairs with my iPhone with Canon's EOS Remote software. I turn on the wifi in the camera, select the camera wifi on my phone's wifi settings, view the images I just shot with the 6D on my phone, select one and email it to my "client" for immediate use. It's a great system. No computer involved. They're straight from the camera so exposure, etc. has to be pretty good, but it's very quick.

"Pretty inconsequential"??? Are you joking? The upgrading of the Hubble telescope was probably worth the whole program. I'm shocked that a photo person would say such a thing. Go to hubblesite.org/gallery/ and see if you don't change your mind.
It is a very cool video. A lot of planning and time went into it.

In reply to:

Elinas: Cool... so the day that they will decide to make Camera raw available for the Fuji X-Pro1, this means I will need to buy CS6...

So will Lightroom 3 get an update so I can use it for the Canon 5D III? If not, will LR4 work seamlessly with CS5 and the new update?
