On Fujifilm X-T10 First Impressions Review preview (509 comments in total)
In reply to:

fuxicek: This is great camera, but cost of lenses is so much higher than by canon... There is no prime 50mm, f 1.8 for 100 euro

That's because the 100 euro prime for canon is junk.

villagranvicent: Fuji should invest less time designing camera bodies and more working on their sensors.

Agreed FX. If one knows how to process an image correctly, the detail is better than the Bayer versions of the sensor.

Marcin 3M: My DSLR has LV. Does any EVF camera offers optical vievfinder?
Seriously, as technology makes progress, the difference between are less important.
But eventually, all owners of CC2020 will be able to make any raw image of any subject with LRCC, and then develop it and modify it with the PSCC. All this using only the touch screen of any 15" smartphone (with 16K curved and packable display).

Cameras are becoming obsolete. Photographers too.

I hope I'm just kidding.

Yes...the Fuji X-Pro1. The EVF is also more accurate than any OVF.

On Meta35 pulls metadata from film cameras article (37 comments in total)
In reply to:

GodSpeaks: Film cameras?
Did I miss a memo, or something?

Is there an echo in here? Couldn't tell over the sound of hundreds of millions of rolls of film still being sold every year.

In reply to:

Segaman: Oh look a Canon review......
Lets trash it.
Makes me feel like sooooooo good.
Oh wait, why dont I get out and use my camera instead of reading reviews and critic Canon?

You guys know the answer....

Oh look, the Canon fanboy rushes to the aid of his sacred camera brand. Anything critical ever stated about Canon must be false.

In reply to:

DavidKennard: A neat idea, they don't seem to include any information about how many rolls each camera can store data for though.

I remember reading about someone picking up a used F5 and having over 100 rolls of film data on the camera.

On Week in Review: Sony FTW article (302 comments in total)
In reply to:

justmeMN: Reality check: According to Sony's May 27, 2015 financial documents, Sony's worldwide ILC market share is a weak (by value) 11%. The introduction of a new $3,200 camera body won't significantly change that.

Smartphones, not Sony, are the biggest threat to Canon and Nikon cameras.

I don't really have anything against Sony cameras, but the breathless hyperbole surrounding them is just silly.

I dont see any breatless hyperbole....other than from you.

12mp...no thanks. No point in that

RStyga: If would be an interesting camera for $3000, which is much closer to its actual value, but Leica does not do $3000...

@rstyga.....feel free to share with us the rangefinder you are comparing it to. As well, share with us the mono camera you are comparing it to. In other words, you dont know what you are talking about

deano7000: I may be displaying my ignorance here, but... why? Monochrome? Completely baffles me.

On the spot? I guess you change mid roll and throw away a lot of film.

He's on a mission trying to prove there is nothing special about a mono sensor. He of course is uninformed and completely wrong....but that doesn't seem to stop some people.
