Few advertisments ever make me lust for a camera, this one does. I love to photograph landscapes and high dynamic range and old fashion, tripod mounting... This camera would fit that bill and never feel the need for more. Although i think 50mp would be plenty and wish that had the 15 stop DR like the 100mp version - buth that's how they get you!
Sadly, that is just a dream since i have tiny pockets :)
I own the Lee Seven5 system if filters, 2 stop hard, 2-stop soft, and the Big Stopper. I have nothing but good things to say about them. I have also used three other major brands. The key is always proper handling and storing to insure thenever scratch
Yxa: Nikon D7200 silver awardSony A6300 gold awardSome Sony bias here for sure
XPro2 got a score of 83 but only recieved Silver Award.
Also, the 6300 should have been compared to the XPro2 but it was compared only to a DSLR.
Retzius: Looks like ISO 400 on my good old Nikon D200 :)
Well, maybe closer to ISO 1600 on my old D200 :)
Dr_Jon: Since ACR doesn't do a great job with X-Trans how about adding a page with a comparison of SilkyPix SP7, Capture One and Iridient to ACR? Otherwise the Raw results seem less reliable.
It is a very cool camera to use, although I'm not quite convinced by the AF. I trust some more information on lens-dependent AF performance will be added once final firmware is available?
Add my favorite,Photo Ninja to the list. Okne of the best for detail and dynamic range
I am very happy with th Lee 10-stop Bigstopper for the Seven5 system. On very bright days more density might be desirable but i think i would prefer to pick up the 5-stop Little Stopper filter and combine the two as needed. This is more flexible solution as i would also have the 5-stop option as needed
justmeMN: I suppose Face Detection Tracking unfairly discriminates against dog faces. :-)
Depends on how you define a 'dog face' 😃
Terrible article title as it indicates a negative about the lens. However,ngood article and great lens. I purchased this lens at full price, same with all my Fuji gear. Anyway, when i got the lens i did a tripod mounte test with my Nikon70-200 f/2.8 markI at f/5.6. Lomg story short, i sold the Nikon lens within a week along with my D300 and was finally Nikon free in 2013. Wonderful lens.
Beautiful set of mostly landscape images. Only a few have a garden theme.
No love anymore for us early XE1 users :(
Wonder why fuji eliminated the Panorama features from this camera? It can be very useful and exists on all other models :(
The most impressive part of ths video to me was the man flyng in the air, until the end when i saw the lines.
Not sure we needed 100mp to watch this video on my ipad!
Biowizard: Purchasing Photoshop CS6 both for Windows and my Mac is the last money I'm sending Adobe.
Same here! At least for my Mac
Greynerd: I hope 4K TV's can be scaled down if we are forced to have them, 4K makes real life look like a cartoon image from what I have seen. Possibly we are reaching a point where video becomes just too sharp and giving video photographic levels of sharpness takes it beyond what looks normal.
I agree. Yet, 8k now exists and will be pushed as the new standard in a few years. When will it end!!!
Usualful article for those like myself that know little about video, and also still use a slow poke computer - 15" 2010 MBP with dual core CPU, but upgraded to a 1Tb SSD two years ago. Perhaps i will upgrade my computer in another year when I upgrade my camera, a 3 year old Fuii XE1 which is great for stills only. Of course in two years 8k will be the new thing.
Nice but nothing particularly special about these photos. Nor do they necessarily reflect the virtues of a rangefinder camera.
JEROME NOLAS: So Samsunng isn't dead! I personally don't believe all those rumours, I'd rather believe FF is coming soon...:)
I was at the show and visited the Samsung booth and spoke to them about the rumor. As Mark Twain once said, the rumors of my death have been greatly exagerrated. Same applies to the Samsung and their class leading sensor
Great work. I think that the 4/3 system is ideal for those who love to hike and camp and I may switch over in a year or so myself since i do a lot of hiking and camping.
