Canon, fix my 70D's wide aperture autofocus issue.

Aww, I thought it was going to be a recall for the 70D's phase detection auto-focus sensor.

On Ricoh announces Pentax XG-1 superzoom article (195 comments in total)

I am guessing this camera is made in the same cheap chinese factory as all the other small sensored super zooms from Kodak, Fujifilm, Afga, and Samsung.

After seeing Fuji's new line of bridge cameras, I'm happy to still have my S200EXR.

On Canon EOS 70D Review preview (637 comments in total)
In reply to:

pixperfect: It seems Canon cameras are getting better and better.

EOS 50D - Magnesium body
EOS 60D - Aliminum body
EOS 70D - Plastic body

Am I missing something?

60D was plastic as well. Both 60D and 70D have metal chassis.

Raist3d: Fuji, I love your other Xtrans cameras, but this is not it. This is an XF1 rebadged (the concept, not literally). Um.... no.

yup, it even says EXRCMOS under sensor type in the specs. Probably a typo. Even if its a rebadged XF1, I like it. And its not as if this is a new thing to do. All manufacturers have rebadged products with slightly new specs.

On Nikon D610 preview (627 comments in total)
In reply to:

JimWongyyz: After reading comments here. This forum becomes a PR nightmare for Nikon. Instead of talking about D610, this forum becomes oil frustration resentment forum.
I suppose full frame customers are big spenders compare to DX buyers. The last thing Nikon should not do is to pizz off full frame Nikon customers.

What Nikon should have done :
1) give extended warranty on D600.
2) or a discount voucher on future purchase of a Nikon camera.

If I were a D600 user, I would be mad. Most likely 2nd hand D600 would take a big hit with this new model.

Yes the lens didn't fit anymore. ;)

evogt500: Question: According to the specs, it uses 1/1.7" sensor with a total of 12.7 detected sensors. However Output is 10.1 MP. What is the actual size of the sensor that the light hits? Is panasonic doing a Canon trick that they did with the 520 HS, where they use a 16MP 1/2.33" sensor but its actually a 10.1 MP 1/3" sensor?

Thank you both for the input.

evogt500: What ever happened to quality control? Fuji, canon and now nikon.

Doesn't matter. They need to do testing in all conditions before they sell. All they care about now is getting the product out first before the conpetition. I guess you must work for one of those companies.

Good job Fuji. Now if only you could have done some R&D from the start...

Direct link | Posted on Apr 26, 2012 at 03:45 UTC as 118th comment

If fuji replaces all the sensors affected, i applaud them.

Direct link | Posted on Mar 12, 2012 at 20:10 UTC as 140th comment

The IXUS 500 (10.1 MP) actually used a 1/2.3" 16MP sensor but cropped. effectively making it a 1/3" sensor ( the area which actually recieves light). Is it the same with the camera?

Sergey Borachev: It seems Fuji has taken a leaf from Pentax, with all these design and/or QC issues and in communication as well as taking the best action to preserve customer confidence. The sticky X100, the over-heating HS20, the orbs in the X10 and X-S1. It is amazing how this orb problem was not detected in system tests before it is released, how?, and if it was, how the release could be allowed? What were they thinking?

Don't get me wrong. I love the innovations from Fuji, but again and again, all the brilliant ideas did not mean so much success and also not so much satisfaction for their customers as should be. Are Japanese attitude, work ethics and pride, that gave us reliable Toyotas and Sony TVs that set such high standards lost, and companies are starting to do it cheap and take unnecessary risks these days? The fraud at Olympus and the leaking nuclear reactors also show not only taking short cuts and risks, but also an honesty issue of such a scale, it does not inspire any confidence.

Nuclear reactor was made by General Electric USA. It had many flaws.

Joe11: Thank you for your investigations.

But can contaminated raw-material from the Fukushima disaster really be excluded ? These are my only fears. And if Fuji does not know the reason for white orbs itself, this should be checked urgently!

If it is due to no AA-filter or weak AA-filter, then everything is fine and I will buy this camera the next days. But what is it really ?
If there is no AA-filter or just weak AA-filter, then I'm looking forward for overall picture quality tests, especially sharpness and details! For this reason I would not care much about white orbs, if everything is ok according to specification.
But again: Hopefully it has nothing to do with contaminated raw-material from the Fukushima disaster. Can Fuji confirm ?

6 months after the disaster, I was in fukushima for 2 weeks. I did not grow any more arms or legs or ORBS. In fact most people in Fukushima and Japan(other than the people who were displaced) live a normal life just as before the disaster.
