On DxO releases FilmPack 4, with 65 new creative effects news story (62 comments in total)

FilmPack 3 Essential has some 21 b/w film, 22 colour slides and 10 colour negative emulations.

FilmPack 4 Essential has 13 b/w film, 16 colour slides and 6 colour negative emulations.

Isn't this upgrade a downgrade actually?

I just hope there will be a b/w digital back for my 40-year-old M4.

Gabor Szantai: Only Ken Rockwell is able to take oversaturated colour pictures with this.

I'm waiting for his review!

rjjr: When I first thought about using a digital camera 8 years ago I originally wanted monochrome only since I was working mostly in BW film. Now there is one and hopefully other companies will make less expensive ones available eventually.

I agree with you. I really like the idea of a b/w only senor, especially, like you, I do most of my work in b/w film. But obviously I belong to the poor bunch.

If a dedicated b/w sensor helps resolution, sharpness, and all those other stuffs, how about a camera with swappable b/w and color senors?

pastorthomas: Fujifilm cameras are not worth fussing over. The SD15 is another fine example why Fuji doesn't make cameras for ease of use. They make them to get you to think that you don't know jack about how to use a camera. The SD15 was really frustrating to use. Not consistent with its exposure, and yes, you had to process all the images to get anything out of the camera. Now comes this Fujifilm FinePix x100 camera that wasn't made for ease of use, even though it's basically a point and shoot camera. There is no rhyme with the reason why they have done some of the things that they have done with the new x100. It will sell only because it is nostalgic not because it is a good camera. Put a high price tag on anything and people will think that the product must be good. But then the saying goes, "there is a sucker born every day," and Fujifilm is banking on that with this camera.

In your understanding and opinion, what camera is not a point & shoot when switched to full automatic mode?
