Bupo: Had my X100 for a couple of years now but have never got round to the first couple of updates. Do I need the earlier ones installed before this latest one or will it work OK on its own?
No, there is no need to install the intermediate updates. Any Fuji FW update completely replaces the FW that was on the camera. The corollary is that any Fuji FW update is a factory reset, returning the camera to default settings (ie, default for the new FW). Any customised settings you have made you will have to do over again (eg, most people turn off the fake shutter sounds the camera makes as soon as they get it, but you will find that the update turns them back on)
Monty71: I find it funny that the same people that bash this camera's small sensor and own m43 cameras usually insist that m43 are just as good as cameras with larger sensors.
@AnepoFF sensor is 36mm across, actual APS C is 24mm (but so-called APS-C digitial cameras are always a little less, typically about 23.6mm, unless they are Canons, in which case they will be smaller), m4/3s is 17.3mm, 1" is 13.2mm.
So if 13.2mm is MUCH MUCH smaller than 17.3mm, how many MUCHs do you need to describe how much smaller m4/3s is than FF? Or can you just increase the size of the font on each of your 2 MUCHs?
kadardr: Anybody read the specifications?1. Slow motion action moment capture: you select image after getting 1.33 sec of action and viewed 3 times slower2. Best moment capture: camera takes 20 shots and selects best 53. Advanced movie mode: you can take stills while taking hd video footage.
And I still cannot get what live image control mode is.
Just think over. This is not what you think to be. I hated V1 and thought it was phony and useless, but V2 is some serious innovation imho.
Only the first of those (selecting a shot from 1.33 sec of video) is new. The other two you can get on the V1 (or J1).
peevee1: The new 10-100 is without image stabilization! Are they planning to add IBIS in the future bodies or what? How useful this 270 mm equivalent at f/5.6 at best without any IS, and with inferior Aptina 1" high ISO?
How useful is their 300mm f4 without VR?
In the 1 system they already had a 10-100mm with VR (and power zoom) and a 30-110 with VR amongst their initial 4 lenses. I was wondering why they were introdicing another 10-100mm lens, but now it is clear - it is for anyone who wants to reduce weight and cost to an absolute minimum while maximising IQ (for a 10X zoom) and lens durability and is prepared to sacrifice VR to do it
