On Fujifilm X-T1 Review preview (479 comments in total)

What happened to the "waxy" images when taking portraits that were mentioned in the Preview?

Interesting that, in the summary, there's no mention of high ISO capabilities - good, bad or otherwise.

Where, exactly, are the "first impressions"?

Music Hands: GPS - I don't understand why it is included on HX50/60V, but omitted on A6000 ... it's inexpensive, and so valuable ot have it in-camera.

When shooting in nature, developing countries, etc. counting on cell coverage and wifi link to a smartphone is unlikely to work, and a pain.

Can anyone explain this to me?

Simple: GPS drains batteries very quickly. Small cameras with big sensors already struggle to get good battery life. The HX50/60 use far less power due to their tiny sensors, reduced AF, etc.

Am I the only one that absolutely hates the new test scenes? So dark, drab. Tough to find areas to compare easily.

Lucas_: Looks like everyone now is rushing in to the gold mine gap Sony discovered with the RX100/II! Competition is always great for consumers. Thank you Sony!

You want a Nikon with a 1" sensor? It's called the Nikon 1 system.

I honestly don't get it - why make a new camera that's almost as big as a DSLR, and then put SLOW, expensive lenses in front of it? The weakness of the NEX line has always been the lenses, and it would appear that this continues with the FE line. Why would anyone buy this when you could get much faster lenses, with great quality, for half the price?

On Welcome to our studio test scene article (274 comments in total)

I absolutely hate this new test scene. So dark, with very few "dark on white" contrast areas, nor are there rounded items (like the globe in the old scene) to see how light fall-off is handled.

Ulfric M Douglas: Is that Polaroid she's holding significantly smaller than they used to be?

It's not a Polaroid. Instax film is 2x3

In reply to:

MrTritium: Does it have any stabilisation? It would be really useful with such a slow lens, especially at tele.

It has no image stabilization at all.

Gag. Looks absolutely nothing like a real collodion photo.

What a dog of a camera, if true. It will be surpassed only by the Hasselblad Lunar in its folly.

Wow, these...ummm...suck. Lifeless colors, no accutance, flat, digital appearance. I was seriously considering ordering one, but not now. Yes, the high ISO shots were nice, but that's not enough when everything else is so bad.

In reply to:

Kwick1: I don't see any update to the impressions either. Also, you may want to remove this sentence, since they're readily available now:

"This is further complicated by the fact that, in principle at least, you can buy (or at least order) a D600 today, whereas the 6D won't be in the shops for some time yet."

It apparently was a server propagation problem. It's showing the new page now.

Kwick1: Your site does not work in IE9. How can I send a screen shot of the jumbled mess I see?

(you really should test against a browser matrix)

Actually, if you have IE9 set to compatability mode, it won't work. If you go to "regular" IE9 it's okay.

You can add one line of code to fix that.

The new menu stacks up vertically on the left and is rendered virtually unclickable.

I'm happy to send a screen shot, as I mentioned. I also sent a mail via the feedback link with my e-mail address.
