Peter K Burian: What the heck size is A3+?? I guess people in England know, but for the rest of us, could someone not have included that info? I had to do a google search.

A3+ paper measures 329mm × 483mm which is about 12.9 × 19.0 inches

In fact it is a A3 printer but it will also accept a paper roll that has the size of a endless A3 paper, as seen on the image above.

Why do I feel that these images are not as sharp as expected them to be?

When I see the quality and pleasure I have shooting with the X100 and the quality of portraits with the X-E1 armed with the zoom or the xf 35mm I am quite sure to have soon a rather good portrait lens in my hands. What the 14mm is at the wide end I hope the 56mm will be for portraits.

I am happy to face an f1.2 lens, but I will not use this aperture all the time. I hope to have a firm “click” for the major stops at the aperture ring. Yes – I think I will like the lens for its feeling, for the image quality and the challenge I will face to manage my model in the same quality the Fuji engineers already did to design and build it.

On article Adobe expands Photoshop and Lightroom offer (628 comments in total)

I am ready to pay a decent price for a good peace of software. But I have the irrational feeling that Adobe is taking control over my PICTURES. Once I stop paying the software will stop working and I will loose access to my own artwork? No way.

In reply to:

AndreyT: At first one wonders what was the point of reposting these images again, after we have seen them hundreds of times already (they were making rounds around the Net for a few years now). But then one notices that there's an obvious political bias in the selection of these images: out of all those well-known Lego photo recreation pictures only the ones were cherry picked that fit certain propaganda-censorship agenda. And then a few "neutral" pictures were added to masquerade the original intent. Apparently someone at "dpreview staff" saw this veiled trolling opportunity and took it.

whould you be so nice and share the links to the other sources in the net you are talking about?

On article 5 Reasons why I haven't used my DSLR for months (598 comments in total)

It comes close to what I experienced. The 35mm lens for the portrait might not be the same as my DSLR 60mm or 90mm, but the reactions of the people are much much more positive. So I do have pictures where normal persons accept to be copied into a digital camera. Even for this my X100 earns nicer comments than my X-E1.

Of minor interest. Nice idea, but not more.

If somebody takes a foto of mine in the street where I have at least a chance to meet him and communicate with him/her I am potentially able to decide about it.

When somebody takes pictures of me without any chance of personal reaction or simple human exchange I totally disagree. I feel like somebody is stealing someting. Fact is that the "hunter" uses me as a simple object.

For me it is part of my freedom and respect in human interactions to at least have a chance to say "no".

macker: Any chance the might do something for Fujifilm X System ??

I asked them and the answer was "not yet".

I love the tool in addition to lightroom since version 2! Still I miss the fuji x sensor support and that turns me mad. In particular I used it for a quick preview and a complex renaming. But if it does not read fuji RAW files ...

On article Adobe's Fujifilm X-Trans sensor processing tested (138 comments in total)
In reply to:

tcab: What about Fuji x100 raw support - doesn't that need improvement too?

Most people can't get x100 raw to look as good as in camera jpeg, which shouldn't really be the case. I've tried it myself and simply gone back to jpeg - it's just too hard fiddling with the raw files.

Has Adobe forgotten the x100 and the x100s?

The X100 in opposite to X100s, X-E1, etc. has a standard pattern. Once the RAW file read all optimizatin algos work fine as on all other sensors. Therefore until now X100 RAW files looked better in some situations that the X-E1 RAW files.

It takes a great expertise to optimize something that is relatively new. Let's see if now the X-E1 can produce images that look sensibly better than the X100.

On article Hands-on with the Fujifilm X100S (57 comments in total)

I do own a X100 for some time and upgrade it by a X-E1 for some weeks now. I thought it was an improvement of the X100. But after some time I feel like the X100 is still a camera I like to have with me, I love to take pictures with and where the results still let me smile. The mechanical interaction with the camera (aperture ring, size, ...) is IMHO much more intutive that the X-E1. So the simple idea of a boosted X100 without changing the body's design let me think of this irrational upgrade I will plan for 2013 :-)

On article Hands-on with Fujifilm's X100S (62 comments in total)

I appreciate the info you share on this X100s. I will allow myself to sell the x100 right now and wait for the upgraded X100s. It feels as fuji pushed my beloved X100 to something I expected from the X-E1.

Fujifilm X-Pro1 and X-E1 are not supported. So I love the product but have no reason to updrade :-(
