Dear Fujifilm

It has been many, many years since you have made a pro level SLR. You might want to consider removing the claim that you sell them from the front page of your camera web page. It makes you look like idiots.

"From cutting-edge digital SLR pro-level models to fashion-conscious point-and-shoot compacts, there's a Fujifilm FinePix digital camera to satisfy every kind of photographer."

Surely you have writers who can compose some new marketing BS that doesnt imply that Fujifilm still makes SLRs, can't you?

Re: Dear Fujifilm

Hi Ratty,

With somewhat different choice of words - I am with you on this one. Making such a bold statement while NO DSLRs are made and sold definitely looks like misleading advertisement. At least we can not see these cameras on the same site.

Re: Dear Fujifilm

Maybe Fujifilm is trying to redefine DLSR.

I do agree with you Ratty. If Fujifilm wants to make a DSLR, then have the gumption to call it a "Pro-Level", they should have a product which supports that claim!

Just because their X-Pro1 has the word "Pro" in it's name doesn't make it a "Pro-Level" camera. It's anything but a pro camera when you look at what a real pro camera is!

Wake up Fujifilm! We're not hip to your hype anymore!

Fuji would never do this... because this much-needed change would be a giant leap forward in marketing and quality control.

PS... Of course, Fuji could not and should not tie the hands of any of their executives... Managers and Executives must be able to do their jobs... and that may actually be Fuji's biggest problem.

That would be the preferable solution.

Re: Dear Fujifilm--Hi RM

Your comment is very reasonable after all the time Fuji has kept the same model DSLR. They should upgrade for sure.

Best wishes, Gary N W SFO

What about X-Pro1?

Not good enough for you?
I've seen a lot of action photos from you in this forum!(?)

'Bass-ackward' does not equate to 'superior'.

X Pro 1 is not an SLR. Fujifilm should not claim on their web site that they make SLR's.

For some yes, but I'm doubtful that they'd get much traction with pros after the way they shafted their pro customers the way they exited that business.

Maybe Fujifilm is basing the claim on price.
