Vegans won't like it.
JWest: These pictures really are amazing. But is it just me, or are there a lot of "jaggies" in some of them? It's especially noticeable on the hard lines of the shuttle - almost like the pictures have been aggressively compressed.
It looks like the resize used a non-interpolating algorithm. I expect better from a NASA astronaut!
Seahster: Hi everyone,
I've been a happy owner of the X-Pro1 for a few weeks now, and have been shooting and documenting my thoughts on this camera on http://handcarryonly.com/tagged/fuji in case anyone is interested.
I would say it is not a camera for everyone and every situation but for street and travel photography, it is where it truly excels, with the high IQ and low weight package.
Is it just me or do the pictures have an old school look about them? Maybe it's just Singapore haze.
Hinder: Thank you, it was overexposed, I saw the guy taking a shortcut across a school playground and tried to hurry it, I hadn't seen a minibike in years!
And subject is in focus with panning.
Underrated photo. Good composition and subject, and looks like a "genuine" over exposure.
As already commented, none of these top photos are accidentally overexposed.
Where's the boat?
Awesome, you're a legend! A+++++++ would vote again!
At 3200 RAW noise is on par with Sony 5N but resolution slightly improved due to higher pixel count. Too bad about the JPEG processing, should be fixable though.
Sdaniella: I have long lost interest in opaque image media, no matter how it is illuminated from the front, inconsistent as a matter of normalcy, and much prefer light displays of images where one can enjoy a broader, more natural perceived dynamic range, that better captures truer representations of what we see around us. Good riddance to low-representative unlit imagery... Opaque PRINTS... (I'm more receptive to well lit transparent prints at the worst, and light projection, so, in this sense, film transparency can always be used like 'stained glass' is used now, and make room for digital light displays instead (passive or active)... stills or motion. For basic text reading, non-lit media still has an important niche, so, opaque media will remain for that.
Please close open bracket, I have a phobia!
hc44: Mirrors exist because of the limitations of film, no other reason. In time you won't see mirrors at all and people will still want large solid cameras so that's not a problem with this camera. Should have an EVF though if it's not going to be small.
They still exist because the legacy technology still lingers; it happens, it took time for floppy disks to see their way out too. If camera invention started with electronic capture they wouldn't have bothered sticking clunky mirror contraptions in an otherwise static hardware design. Understand the basic limitation of film to understand why mirrors evolved.
