Pointless camera..

Mirrorless but only capable of 4fps?? and 1/4000 sec max shutter?

It's an obvious marketing ploy - they'll see how it sells then bring out the proper version with 12 fps and 1/8000 or 1/12000 shutter speed.

People should vote with their wallets and tell these cynical marketing morons to bring out proper worthwhile cameras!

Albino_BlacMan: Now how does this work? Does everyone get a new camera for free? Can you send you camera in to have the sensor swapped for free? Or are the "beta testers" SOL and forced to pay for the new sensor?

Looks promising.

The second to last one has a sharpish edge to the bloom, but it's not a picture killer by any means.

uw69: Really wish full reviews for this camera were available. DPR is so slow!

True, but then we also live in a world where review sites has a monetary interest in producing rave reviews..

FeedMe: "However, we did receive some inquiries concerning the so-called ‘white disc’ or ‘blooming’ occurrence, where exceptional highlights in the picture can appear as strongly delineated rounded shapes. This ‘blooming’ effect can occur with all digital cameras which use CMOS sensors, to varying degrees. It can also occur with the X10 and X-S1 when shooting in certain conditions, e.g. cars with front lights shining in dark night scene. The X10 and X-S1 are fitted with a very advanced sensor, which gives excellent picture quality and low noise, but which does give a different ‘blooming’ effect from other cameras. "

Still talking down to your customers, eh?..

Why don't you stop treating them like burger-flipping morons and admit it's a buggered-up sensor design.

OK.. yes, it's technically accurate to say "different blooming effect" - but that's like saying a wrecked car is "differently drivable"

You can contact me if you want the BIG image rather than the DPReview reduced one.
Let me know if you want it deleted, I will immediately.

Jonathan F/2: Wow!

I used to do weddings with Eos film camera. I'd never do it with digital, too much PP needed (digital is actually pretty poor, in truth).

We charged (in 2000) $500 to $1500 Australian.
We used a photojournalist 'story-of-the-day' style, 3-8 rolls of 36, they got an average of 20-28 shots per roll, 6x4 printed in an album.

Any enlargements were extra, available at any time, rates were reasonable too, $10 for a 6x8 unframed.

Of course Au and Usa can't be compared, but I do feel that there is both a "what the market can bear" factor AND this belief that photographers are something special, the elite so-to-speak.

There is, however , a lot of responsibility, often we were required to go past our remit of just taking pictures.. realistically, we did anything needed to speed and assist in their "great" day.

I'd say, when we were doing photos for a large 12 picture album style wedding, $2000 to $3000 was our price.
