On Fujifilm X30 (beta) real-world samples article (95 comments in total)
In reply to:

pacnwhobbyist: To the dpreview guys - Were all of these taken using the standard setting or were any of them taken using Velvia, Classic Chrome etc etc.?

Std except the shot of the beehives at dawn, which is an in-camera converted Raw, converted as 'Velvia'.

On Fujifilm X30 (beta) real-world samples article (95 comments in total)
In reply to:

maxnimo: Photo samples are supposed to demonstrate the quality and capability of a camera or lens, not to show off a photographers goofy artistic talents. Why do so few understand that? Showing one small subject surrounded by blurriness is fine, but that only demonstrates a very tiny part of what photographers need.

This collection shows a range of subjects, wide aperture and small aperture, close range and infinity focus, shot through the ISO range in the various DR expansion modes, at different times of the day.

Other suggestions gratefully received.

Russell McMahon: I'm not sure how these relate to these

Is it possible to plagiarize oneself? Especially since I didn't shoot the pictures myself ;)

In reply to:

ray tracer: Barney- thanks for posting these on DPreview- doesn't matter that you've posted them in other places too.
Why post these old pics on a photography site? because it's a reminder that the photographs we take of everyday subjects can take on different meanings after (and long after) we take them.

I'm sure I'm not the only one who has walked past a familiar building that was recently demolished, and wished I'd taken a pic or two of it as it was.

The only other site I posted these is my own personal portfolio site (as a work in progress) and thanks! History is always interesting.

In reply to:

Russell McMahon: @Onlooker - Yes. I'm aware of that.
It would be useful if the other website made some comment on the photo collection's origin. (It may do so and I may have not been able to find the information). I only found the site using an image search (looking for the "Strength through Joy" muraled building. This (DPR) site said they were 'found in a flea market'. Quite possibly true, although the majority of "found in an old camera/album/..." claims turn out to be a gloss over a just as useful reality. Knowing where the claim came from and being able to trace some of these back a little more would be interesting.

Glad you like them :)

I (the editor of this site) found these images at a flea market (in Seattle) and scanned them (using my scanner) and published them (here).

In reply to:

peevee1: "X30 offers faux mechanical exposure mode and exposure compensation dials on its top-plate"

What d you mean by "faux" - they don't work? ;)

You've lost me. What is written is not incorrect. Where's the problem?

Faux because there's no mechanical linkage between dial and shutter / aperture.

In reply to:

Petak: I like it when they make a bold statement and then put the all-forgiving question mark at the end. It's so cheap.

It's a pretty common rhetorical technique.

ProfHankD: Hmm. 4 articles to announce one X30 camera. That's a DPReview record. Is the Fuji mark-up at GearShop that high? ;-)

Hopefully you're joking.

In reply to:

Simon97: This should be titled, "Do We Really Need Four Articles in One Day on the Fuji X30?".

Really DPR, cut it down to a couple articles.

I'm sorry for giving you too much to read.

In reply to:

peevee1: 4 "articles" out of 1 product announcement (not even a test). DPR is getting desperate. :)

So we're doing more content on new cameras, at the point of launch (i.e., at the point of maximum interest), and we're 'getting desperate'...? This is something our readers have been asking us to do for years.

Snikt228: They are wasting time on these phones but don't have a single lens tested on the Sony a7, a7s, Nikon D810 ???

Connect is a separate site, with a separate team. No camera or ILC lens reviews were harmed in the creation of this content.

In reply to:

Thomas Karlmann: This article is kind-of dumb -- all I care about is WHICH cameras this guy is using -- and DPR has chosen to bury this info "Somewhere in the Comments". Go suck an egg DPR -- and let me know when you have some real news to report; until then you can keep pushing Sony, as usual.

You missed the 'Gear in this story' links at the bottom of every page, I'm guessing?
