Chaitanya S: Finally a multi-aspect sensor from Panasonic. good looking camera.

After using the RicoGR in raw crop modes I will have to beg to differ. The whole workflow is simplified and it helps to compose at the time of capture quite a bit.

If they did not show the Nikon 1 at this show that's not a good sign for the system.

@Photomonkey- no marketing hype. As someone else said it crops to the raw and keeping same field of view. The workflow also in seeing the LCD in the crop mode *and* having the raw open that way is really really good. It's just not the same as taking a bigger shot and cropping later.

Oooh... can develop raws in-camera. About time Panasonic.

Ugh Panasonic. You took out the horrible wheel on the back of the GM5 design (applause) but you put it on this one? Why?!

In reply to:

Jogger: At that price, might as well get one of the 1-inch sensor compacts. You get way more features and better/faster lens. The GM1 would have been more relevant 4 years ago.

Faster lens is countered by a better sensor, at least to a big degree. I can't begging to understand why you find the price wrong on what seems to be quite a versatile camera.

Panasonic, thank you thank you thank you for getting rid of that stupid wheel in the back. Best choice ver you could have done for this series.

Raist3d: I am kinda dissapointed Fuji has expanded their lens line this way. I would have expected the original F1.2 lens to have more than good enough bokeh.

I just feel like the original lens should have had good enough bokeh. I sort of see it I guess.

Finally! e-shutter option for the X-line. Now Fuji, get that in the XE-2 or an XE-3 and take my money.

On Fujifilm X100T Overview preview (637 comments in total)

The biggest news for me is the electronic shutter. That sounds like awesome on a cake- because it means it's coming to the rest of the X line. I so have been asking for that.

bigdaddave: Emperor's new clothes, retro is always best.

A fixed lens, utterly limiting, a pointless exercise in posing

No worries. There's a lot of photographers that want and can do a lot with the "utter limiting" prime lens.

Direct link | Posted on Sep 10, 2014 at 07:23 UTC

What interests me the most here is the fact this is the first X-trans line camera with APS-C *and* electronic shutter. I can only hope the Fuji X-E3 offers one. That would be just great.

On Opinion: Do we really need the Fuji X30? article (310 comments in total)
In reply to:

CameraLabTester: The marketing spin doctors at Fuji should follow the Canon style of promo:

Keep all three (X10, X20 and X30) as current!

That way, there are choices of different arrangements.

Canon still keeps the 600D churning, even if the 650D and 700D have been launched.

A lot of people still want the X10 and X20 but can't find them on shelves.

Marketing 101, Mr. Fuji...

Marketing 101.

.

To me the RX100 (I & II and probably III) all handle horrible. I tried to like it, but passed on it because of this.

Looking forward to see what Panasonic does with the LX8.

I really think that at this size, an 1'' would have been a more attractive proposition. I suppose the price is not horrible considering they give you a reasonably good lens with that zoom range, but still.

On Fujifilm announces X30 enthusiast compact camera article (43 comments in total)

I don't mind the sensor size as much, but I mind it's the same as the previous generation camera in the line. I was expecting to see an improved version of the sensor. Would have been nice to be a 1'' given the size of the camera.

Marty4650: A really interesting "update"...

1. Canon SL1 - 17 months old
2. Canon T5i - 17 months old
3. Nikon D3300 - 7 months old
4. Nikon D5300 - 10 months old
5. Pentax K-50 - 14 months old
5. Sony SLT-A58 - 18 months old

It's like a trip to a museum to see the dinosaurs.

In a world of photographer insecurity where the camera makes you a better photographer (allegedly) and appearances that's very important to know.

In a world of real photographers using very capable cameras to create a photograph regardless of brand, I find your comment pretty irrelevant.

On Ricoh expands Q series with Pentax Q-S1 article (362 comments in total)
In reply to:

locke_fc: Sorry, but a 1/1.7" sensor is no longer acceptable. Might as well use your smartphone instead.

Barnet- given the Q7 / Q-S1 is an 1/1.7'' sensor, and given it has an F1.9 lens option I don't understand how you think it is comparable. And the ultra wide lens of the Q is much better that what you have available in that other realm.
